Twin Falls Campground

Watch for the sign for Twin Falls Campground (the sign had been taken down on my most recent visit, but the pylons it was mounted on were still in place). The falls are found about halfway through the campground (which is walk-in only). Directions: Twin Falls Campground is located approximately 4.5 miles west of the junction of FR 90 and FR 23 or about 13.5 miles east of the Lower Lewis River Falls Campground on FR 90. Just up the road past 42 mile point marker turn down the gravel road that winds down to the parking area. Be aware that the sign had been taken down when we visited the campground so you have to be vigilant.

Twin Falls Campground is a walk-in only but the sites a relatively close to the parking area. Trails lead from the parking area to an upper and lower terrace. Short woodsy trails from the upper terrace lead to the 4 sites on the lower level that are right on the creek. The views of the falls from several of the sites are spectacular and the song of the falls pervades the entire campground. This is a beautiful place and has a great sense of privacy due to the sound of the falls, the big trees, and gorgeous woodland setting. This rustic campground is operated by the Forest Service which lists 5 sites at Twin Falls however we documented 6 well defined sites. It could be that sites 3 and 6 on the upper level could be considered one large group site. Vault toilet available. Water and firewood available at Lower Falls Campground 13 miles down the road.

Twin Falls itself is a destination. It is a picturesque stair-step waterfall that drops 35 feet almost right into the Lewis River. The two tiers are about equal in size and each tier has it's own characteristic beauty.
