Back Porch SwingWe have six 14x18' authentic log cabins, two Yurts, several RV sites, and a multitude of comfortable tent sites for you to choose from. Click on the tabs below to learn more about each.

Imagine yourself tucked away in one of our cozy cabins on a fall evening. The fog has settled in and the temperature is dropping. As you crank up the propane heater, you hear it...the sound of bull elk bugling just a few yards away from your cabin. You carefully open the cabin's back door a few inches, just enough to hear the sound of water sloshing as the elk wade across the pond behind the cabins.

A fairytale? Nope--pretty much a common occurrence every fall when it gets cold enough that the elk start traveling down valley. Of course, there's a chance you'll see or hear them in all seasons, but fall and winter are the best elk-viewing seasons.

Click for current weather conditionsIn the summer, you can sit in the porch swing on the cabin back porch and watch the birds, deer and other critters that frequent the park. RV and tent folks can sit out and listen to the sound of the wind in the tress and the not-so-distant Toutle River flowing as they enjoy a delicious meal at their site's picnic table.

No matter which accommodations you choose, you'll enjoy a restful vacation as you unwind in the peaceful, pastoral setting of Eco Park. Make your reservations today!

Our 14x18' authentic log cabins are equipped for 2-4 guests and come complete with bottled water, bio soap, bedding, towels, propane lights & heat, and a pond view from the back porch swing.

Each cabin has its own path to our wilderness comfort station (that's a "bathroom" to you city dwellers) complete with hot showers. There is no cooking allowed in the cabins.

There is also a Journal located in each cabin so you can record your adventures and compare your experience with prior guests. Prices range from $125.00 for two, to $130.00 for four, plus tax. Use our Customized Tour Worksheet to plan your vacation.

We do not supply flashlights! Please remember to bring flashlights and batteries!

Better known as bathrooms, several Comfort Stations are situated around the park, each complete with hot water, shower, pedestal sink, toilet, heat and lights.

Welcome to Eco ParkThe 90-acre Eco Park Resort offers the closest full-service accommodations to the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. We are located at milepost 24 along the Spirit Lake Memorial Highway (SR 504.)

The resort is environmentally designed to provide you with comfortable yet rustic accommodations, from cozy log cabins or a Pacific Northwest Yurt to RV spaces and tent sites. Running water and a complete bathroom facility with hot showers.

The resort is surrounded by lush forest and the world-famous North Fork Toutle River mudflow, created during the historic May 18, 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens. We share our location with the local wildlife, seen throughout the property.

Cafe & Gift Shop: We also offer food services (check the Cafe page for seasonal schedule) and a gift shop located at our Backwoods Cafe.

Trails: Unimproved trails are available for hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking. They wind through a rich abundance of beaver ponds, meadows, deer and elk habitat. Traveling along these trails, you will see firsthand effects of the 1980 eruption. Marvel at the lush life that resulted from that devastating moment. This is nature's youngest landscape, reborn with new life.

Pond and Mudflow: The property has its own pond for wildlife viewing. We also have two streams you can hike along and cool your feet in. The mudflow is a short hike from the park and provides a unique opportunity for guests to see half-buried houses and logging camp remains.

We supply all the wood and light it on nights that we are permitted by the weather conditions. All our guests are welcome to come down to the fire pit and share their adventures and learn about the area from one of our local hosts. On Saturday nights we add a little music and have an old-fashioned sing-along.
