Area 33 rally, Trout Lake WA

I just reserved the coolest and most secret camping location in the Pacific NW. Hollenbeck Park located near Trout Lake WA.

This rural spot sports a group camp area with fire ring - wood included, great views, a babbling brook, 2 lovely porto-lets, 1 elect plug and a potable water spigot. Think boon-dockers delight. If you want to shower you can drive a couple of miles down the road to the county park or swim in the creek (cows will be watching...) Camping is in grassy field with some sparse trees - no sand, gravel or asphalt slabs anywhere!

Reserved dates: May 25, 26, 27

This place is highly casual and folks just wander in and set up camp. It would be nice to have someone get there a day early.

Please let me know if you are planning on attending. Camping fees last year were stated as $12 and $15. Expect the same.

Area 33 - more farm-less park.
33 Mt Adams Rd.
Owners:Zoe and Gerald Wood


Directions: From Hwy 141 North bound - Mt Adams Hwy
  • Bear right at Chevron Station (road splits) in town and go about 1/4 mile across creek. fair warning - town is hard to recognize - a small market or two - that's all. This intersection is near the County campground
  • Left at 4-way intersection - look for sign to park, go about 300 yards down driveway
  • Right at sign to Hollenbeck park
  • Left at Green Gates - go down somewhat bumpy road - sometimes gravel
  • Drive down old runway 1900 ft (see hanger on left) -at the end of the runway cross irrigation ditch.
  • Camping to the left - we get the area with the fire pit and picnic table.. Please be careful about water spigots.
Just go ahead and park. One of the owners will come by on a small motorbike to collect. They do not take plastic! Checks OK.

Dumping: there is no dump station here - but the County park - seen on map quest link does have a dump station. You may dump "not too gray" water out of the way. Donít ask - donít tell.

This place is not in any phone book and the directions are kinda like a treasure hunt. The owners work at day jobs and do not advertise. Some portion of this land is a working farm.

here's a mapquest map

Can a 19' CCD with low ground clearance navigate the bumps and ditches?

If so I am in.

I will take the space between the cow and the flying saucer.

Put me down for the nights of the 25th and 26th.

Thanks

Ok... move that pig over.....

moooo! We're in! Uh.... how boondocky are we talking here? Is that ONE spigot and outlet for everyone, or one per site? Never tested that battery for long before... this could be good!

Can we daisy chain the water.. HOW does one daisy chain water? Better try and get new axles prior!

My only concern... once we grass camped at a KOA, got miserably stuck coming out (course, that was prior to the limited slip diff...). Maybe I'll bring my chains too...

Food? Bacon?

Thumbs up Great Spot!!

While I didn't have my CCD there last year, I did manage an evening at the inaguaral meeting. I won't be out of FL at that point yet, but I'll send my spirit to join you.

Expecting to hit the road sometime in mid-JUNE....................

You daisy chain water with a "Y" connector on a hose. Probably just as well to use the water source to fill you tank and use your tank/pump. Water pressure from the hose could be an issue if several tried to use it as a "city water" connection.

Janet, Sounds great to us. Will our big old 28 footer sink in muck? I'll get the view-master projector ready and pack the 3-d glasses. Airstream in 3-d by she's not crazy productions. Glenn & Teresa

Last time we were there - it was all grass - no muck. I wouldn't anticipate traction trouble.

We had a small rally at this place last year. There are pics on the old rally thread and at C Johnsons blog here

There aren't exactly sites here. Think big grassy area with trees, fire ring and scenery - lots. Very rural.

There is one (1) electrical outlet (110) for the entire site. They intended that it would be used to string a set of cute lights arounf fire area.
There were several water spigots - but not in really convienant locations. Could be as far as 100 feet from your trailer - but there is water. I recommend filling up and running water pump. Some folks will be able to park near water....

There is a lovely water pump with old time handle and stone basin with hand milled lavender soap near out house as well.

This is an extremely laid back place. Bring a book, a hammock, kite, fishing gear - there is kayaking near by.

We will bring a generator for recharges - we can share.

We had SO much fun with a kite last time - I haven't played with a kite that long since I was a wee little kid! And the view - oh the view! Count us in! Dave has confirmed the calendar is cleared, and we've got it down for that weekend.

We would love to come but not sure if we will still be on this side of the continent. We'll have to keep you posted.

Umm... yes.

Food:

Here's what I propose:

Friday night: Dogs, brats and sides. Lets keep it simple as many will be driving that day.
We will bring all the buns and 18 kosher dogs.

Good additions: a reasonable number of brats, Veggie dogs (we have at least 4 vegetarians signed up so far), condiments, side dishes, chips, salad and deserts. You are responsible for your own drinks. Please sign up via PM and I'll edit this post with additions as we go along.


JDL - Potato salad
Janet - All buns and 18 kosher dogs
Blue Pearl - Sauerkraut and a desert
audiobox - green salad w/feta and tomatoes, veggie dogs
bbwwjd - brats, vegie tray
NorCalBambi - crunchy, salty bits and cookies
L&C Woogie - Greek Salad and melons
64lawncondo - condiments
2ai - still thinking
bbwwjd - strawberry shortcake

Saturday night: BYOM BBQ & potluck
Bring your own meat to BBQ and a side, salad or desert to share. You are responsible for your own drinks.

JDL - 2 pies
Blue Pearl - salad
audiobox - potato or rice salad
bbwwjd - fruit tray, Beth's world famous carrot cake
NorCalBambi - Veggie dish
L & C Woogie - Scalloped potatoes, quinoa veggie salad
Stefrbrts - junk food
Janet - mushrooms and sweet walla wallas, bathed in butter and merlot.

Sunday B-fast: We'll bring eggs, taters and ham for all.
Good additions: Juice, coffee, hot baked cinnamon rolls, fruit.
Please sign up via PM.

Sunday dinner: Anyone want to organize? A lot of folks will stay Sunday night....
L&C Woogie - will help but need some co-bag holders!

We will bring the big stove, cooking gear and the box of paper goods - but we want to be on holiday and would like some help. Assistance with scullery work and a brave person to take on Sunday night would be lovely. If no one wants to commit to Sunday dinner, I guess it's everyone for themselves. Our cooking gear is available to use.

Please keep in mind that facilities are limited and so we need to keep clean up really simple. I will edit this post with food additions as we go along - please check back.

I think you mentioned an old airstrip, and big grassy field... Do the owners (or other campers) have any problems with motorized toys?

We're thinking about coming, and would like to bring along the kids' go-kart. It sounds like a good spot for it, but don't want to violate any of the owners rules or irritate our fellow campers.

I can't speak for campers or owners, but this place has quiet and peaceful writen all over it. There are pastures just a few feet from the "air strip" and camping area. The owners pet horses and a few cows are in the pastures... My personal take on scooters, motorbikes, etc is that they probably don't fit into this location and might spook the critters.

There is great kayaking nearby and white water adventures just down the road at the white salmon river....

To add to Janet's list. There is a large stream/small river that runs along one side of the camping area, fishing (Theo caught one last year), kayaking, swimming if you're into glacial flow temperatures, some really great picture taking opportunities, hiking, bicycle riding to your hearts content and just plain sitting and taking in the whole scene. Plenty to do
