Panther Creek Campground is located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and nestled in a heavily forested area with dense trees and plenty of shade. The campground rests along the edge of Panther Creek and is adjacent to the Pacific Crest Trail.
Panther Creek Campground is home to 26 campsites and provides campers with vaulted toilets, picnic tables, fire rings and potable water. The sound of the nearby creek is an added plus to this cozy campground in the middle of the woods. The campsites are spaced out relatively well though, as with most campgrounds, there are some sites that get you a little too close to your neighbors. Even so, there are plenty to choose from and unless you are here in the middle of the summer there shouldn’t have trouble finding a spot
Panther Creek campground may be close to its namesake, however, this isn’t a large body of moving water and fishing isn’t much of an option. For recreational opportunities, visitors should be ready to drive. The following is a short list of nearby attractions when staying at Panther Creek:
Pros: Lots of nearby activities, drinking water and clean campground, shaded well for hot summer days
Cons: Too much shade if you are looking for sun. Swimming in Panther Creek is not really ideal.
