Tyee Trail Travel Tour, Mt St Helens Area—

Being we are not fans of “tourism bureaucrats,” private or public, making inflated salaries by over-marketing a natural wonder —and ignoring the magic of what an area really has to offer— we suggest this section of the Tyee Trail almost be done day-trip style. Motorhome travelers to Mt. St. Helens used to have a beautiful resource of camping on the banks of the Columbia River at Kalama until a Port of Kalama commissioner dictated a county memorial park be closed “for economic reasons.” RV travelers now have to drive 30-miles to Jantzen Beach on the Oregon side of the river for overnight parking space.
