The park also offers hiking trails, playground equipment and easy access to the South Toutle River for fishing and swimming.
Set in a quiet forest, in an old homestead, the park offers a convenient base for sightseeing, hiking and biking the Mt. St. Helens area. Kid Valley Campground is also located close to fishing opportunities at nearby lakes and the famous Toutle River.
Winter activities include hunting, crosscountry skiing, and snowmobiling in the nearby area, including the Toutle state forest, with 35,000 acres open to snowmobiling.
We are located adjacent to the Toutle River and a few miles from the Green River, both of which have recovered from the volcanic mud flows and offer great salmon and steel-head fishing. We are a short drive from fly-fishing at Coldwater Lake and bass and trout fishing in Silver Lake. Year around elk viewing is popular on the road to Mount St. Helens and hunting in the Winston, Toutle, Coweeman and Margaret units are nearby, too. Call for special hunting season rates.

Revel in dramatic Pacific Northwest scenery from this KOA, terraced into a hill-side with inspiring views of a Douglas fir forest and beautiful sunsets. You’ll enjoy the campground’s peaceful country setting and convenient location. Situated about an hour from Portland, Oregon, and Olympia, Washington, it’s an easy 2-mile drive from I-5, yet far enough off the highway to offer a quiet respite. One of the nation’s most dramatic natural events occurred close by in 1980, when Mount St. Helens erupted. At the campground, you’re just a few miles from the Mount St. Helens Visitor Center at Silver Lake, where you can learn about the eruption and visit scenic viewpoints and trails in and around the blast zone. This KOA is an ideal base for exploring the area or a convenient overnight stop in your RV. Your hosts: Brian, Ingrid, Adam and Hunter Orndoff.
