Located in southwest Washington State, the Gifford Pinchot National Forest encompasses 1.3 million acres and includes the 110,000-acre Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument established by Congress in 1982.

Oklahoma Campground is located in the Mt. Adams Ranger District. Elevations here range between 1,200 feet at the Wind River Work Center, 12 miles north of Carson, WA and 12,276 feet at the summit of Mt. Adams.

The Mount Adams Ranger District features largely diverse habitats and natural features, from old growth to second growth forest, wetland areas, low and high elevation meadows, glaciers, and low and high elevation lakes.

Big Lava Bed is located just west of the campground. The trail takes hikers through a landscape marked by basalt lava formations and pine forest.

The multi-use Monte Carlo Trail is also nearby and can be enjoyed by hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders.

Fishing and wading is permitted in the Little White Salmon River, where anglers can find brook and rainbow trout.
