The cliff side site at Golden Lakes is nice.

I liked Summerland a lot with its location providing good views.

As for campsites that I camped at that were in locations with plenty of trees that I didn't mind camping at were Paradise River, Sunrise and Nickel Creek.

Least favorite sites I camped at: North Puyallup, Mowich Lake, Devils Dream and Mystic Lake.

Although I didn't camp there, I thought the Dick Creek site was charming and scenic with only two sites.  I thought the worst sites I saw as I went around the mountain were North Puyallup and Mowich Lake, the former merely nondescript and unattractive, the latter dusty and very heavily trafficked.  Devil's Dream has a soft spot in my heart - where I spent several hours in the company of a Northern Flying Squirrel.

A several quart water container is useful.  Many of the campsites are not conveniently close to their water sources.  Like that nice cliff side camp at Golden Lakes.

I boozed there once. Not sure if it qualified as "big" or not though.

I ditto Indian Bar, I'd send pics but I'm one my phone.  waah.gif
Although it isn't talked about a lot, I do want to give a shout out to North Puyallup on the west side if you are staying over there.  I know it's not as popular as others but I really enjoyed it.  The campsites are nestled back in off the trail, the sun rising and setting over the peaks above as I sat by the rushing water near the bridge was a highlight of doing the Wonderland.  The privy was just a bit weird...

Is that the one right by The Colonade?  I didn't camp there but passed thru on a long day hike loop.  I thought it looked pretty cool too.

Possibly. It is right at the high bridge over the river and where the old road ends (cool stone walls).
