Friends Landing Campground
Campground Description: Friends Landing Campground exists due to concerted efforts between the Friend Family, Trout Unlimited, Columbia Pacific RC&D and Grays Harbor County. The campground was envisioned as a fisherman's paradise for people who are wheelchair bound. Every aspect of the facility is wheelchair accessible. Fishermen (and fisherwomen) have their choice of fishing in Lake Quigg or on the Chehalis River. The lake provides Rainbow trout with several other species while the Chehalis river offers Sturgeon year round and Salmon in season. The campground is beautifully landscaped with shrubbery to provide isolation between the campsites, once mature. The restroom facilities are also wheelchair accessible with flush toilets and hot showers. Full shopping, restaurants and services are available in Montesano (2.2 miles from Friends Landing Campground). Open year round. Reservations are strongly recommended during the summer months as well as during Salmon season.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
