The Department of Natural Resources announced on December 1, it will reopen two campgrounds west of Belfair in Tahuya State Forest — Camp Spilman and Kammenga.
Budget cuts closed the campgrounds two years ago but received grant funding from the Non-highway and Off-road Vehicle Activities program. The new funding will help pay for enforcement, maintenance and staffing. Crews from the Mission Creek Corrections Center will help maintain the facilities and trails and will installing small bridges where needed.
This is an area made popular with off-road trail riding. See a video made last year.
Visitors can start camping Jan. 6 at the Tahuya River Horse Camp on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here to download a map of the park
