  1. Mike Abrantes says:

    Are the campgrounds open planning on the 5th to the 9th of August. Love the site and would like to know if it is open?

  2. I’m camping at Forks next week and was wondering if there are food storage lockers/bear boxes? Thanks

  3. Zachariah Brown says:

    Hello. I was hoping to camp at Forks in a couple weeks and on recreation.gov, it appears that there are many sites available to reserve. However, the usda.gov link for this campground says reservations are not allowed. Can you please clarify?
