AEG/WFF Cowlitz Party Location and Directions Well as I posted earlier, our party location went out of business last week and is now owned by the bank. Owens and I went down yesterday, drove many miles, scouted numerous locations, and finally found one. Riffe Lake Campground sits on some beautiful waterfront property on a hill overlooking Riffe Lake near the bustling town of Mossyrock. At the top of the campground is a sort of ampitheater cut out of the side of a hill with rough-hewn log seats all facing towards a stage. The owner likes to refer to it as the "Riffe Gorge". Every year she throws an event at the campground called "Riffe-Stock". From the ampitheater the the road snakes down through the forest to the lake, and there are numerous beautiful campsites cut out of the forest. There are also RV sites, for those planning on bringing an RV, hookups are extra. The campground is located 11 miles from Blue Creek on the Cowlitz. Riffe Lake Campground 241 Osborne Rd Mossyrock, WA 98564 (360) 983-8122 Here are the directions: Take I-5 South (from Seattle) Take Exit 68, Highway 12 EAST Go 21 scenic miles to the town of Mossyrock Turn right on Williams Street which takes you into Mossyrock At the T intersection, go left on Mossyrock Rd East Head East for 2 1/2 miles At the Y in the road turn turn right on Swofford Road Head 2 more miles, staying left on Green Mountain Road 200 yards after the fork in the road, turn left on Osborne Road Follow to end!

If you get lost, try calling the number above. For those of you who are bringing families or who would like to sleep somewhere not quite so noisy, 5 miles down the road is Mossyrock Park, a quiet campground run by Tacoma Power. More information on that campground can be found here: http://www.ci.tacoma.wa.us/power/parksandpower/cowlitz/parks_recreation/mossyrock.htm The campground is reserved Thursday - Sunday, we'll be arriving mid-day on Thursday to set things up, if anyone is around and would like to help, that would be appreciated. The entrance fee for the party is $25 and includes your camping fee, access to the 9 kegs of beer, and entertainment. You can pay cash at the party, or we'll have a PayPal page set up soon to pre-pay. See ya there!
