Goose Lake Campground is located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Southern Washington. The campground has 18 first come first served sites that are located on a sloped hill adjacent to the lake.
Goose Lake Campground has sites that are best suited for tent campers as most parking spots are on the side of the road through the camp. The campground is situated on a hill and as a result, many of the sites are limited in flat ground and lack ideal tent spots. There are no “driveways” for the campsites so visitors must park on the edge of the road in small pullouts.
Some of the sites are situated in a way that gives them decent privacy while others are fairly close to neighbours. There are no campsites on the lake side of the road which leaves it open for day use recreation including boating, fishing and swimming.
Each site comes with a picnic table and fire pit. The campground has vault toilets and there is no potable water available so be sure to bring your own. Near the entrance of Goose Lake is a small concrete boat launch and parking for vehicles and trailers.
