If you love fly-fishing, this campground is a perfect spot for you. Merrill Lake also has a boat launch. The scenery around here is breathtaking. The campsites fill up fast though and keep in mind sites are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Merrill Lake is a lovely place for swimming & kayaking! Says Tracy Waters (see picture)

This is a primitive campground which as expected means that there are not many facilities. Water hookups are on hand here, and primitive camping at a campround like Merrill Lake Campground is a good way to be near the wilderness.
As if Merrill Lake Campground wasn't enough,

 activity.

There are obviously restrooms at this campground, and it is incredibly charming here at this primitive campground. Of course it may be challenging to get to a primitive campground such as this one, but it's worth the effort.
Quite a lot of amusing stuff to do in close proximity to Merrill Lake Campground, and what a pleasant site for camping it is. Merrill Lake Campground is a very well loved campground by residents of Cougar. The nearby category III-IV, 15-mile-from-beginning-to-end Upper Kalama Falls to Gobar Creek segment of whitewater on Kalama River is heaps of fun. This segment of Kalama River
 
is fitting for whitewater paddlers who have been whitewater rafting or kayaking for a period of time but who are not yet set for the especially treacherous rapids.
