Southwest is a walk-in campground. Parking is in the
main parking lot for the visitor center, and the campsites
are in the forest down from the parking. The walk in
is maybe 100'
campgrounds are usually different culturally; they often
attract hikers, and are usually cleaner and quieter.
The Mill Creek Falls trail
starts in the north edge of the campground, and many other
trailheads are within a short drive There are flush
toilets and piped water during the snow-free season.
Except for the parking lot,
the scenery is excellent here. This is a very good
campground for hikers.
