South Skookum Lake Campground

We strive diligently to keep our facilities disinfected, but cannot guarantee they are 100% free of coronavirus. Please bring your own hand sanitizer, and if you are feeling ill, help protect other campers and our employees by staying home.

Currently no water available here. Please bring all the water you need to drink.

South Skookum Lake contains 25 campsites.  There is a short and narrow boat ramp available.  The lake is small enough to make it not suitable for large boats.  Two docks provide fishing opportunities for those without boats.
