Looking for camp sites in WA that have rope swings over water.

I'm looking for areas in Washington state that have rope swings over water.

We're going camping and I'm hoping to find a spot that features a rope swing that goes out over the water (lake/creek/...). The closer to Seattle the better, but any pointers would be appreciated. Thanks!

I know there are one or two on the Icicle River in Leavenworth, or at least there were a few years ago. We used to rent inner tubes and float down the river; there was one swing off of a bridge, and a second one near where the inner tube folks would come pick us up.

(Isn't there one in Fremont that'll drop you into the ship canal? OK, not a camping spot, but it is close to Seattle)

Snoqualmie River, just outside of Fall City, the popular tubing drop-off point on Fish Hatchery road (below the falls) has an epic one.

Was just on Icicle creek in Leavenworth and saw no evidence of rope swings.

South Fork of the Stillaguamish at the Jordan river bridge, near Arlington is a popular spot. there is not much camping nearby, however.
