Average campground. Closely spaced sites, next to a river which is nice but also close to the main road so you can hear traffic. Nice one night passing through stay. $24/night, seemed to be reserved through the weekend. Personally did not have cell service through Verizon
We had the group site B for shit 15 people and it was absolutely stunning. Plenty of room for all of our vehicles. Plenty of space for all of us to spread out with tents, long picnic tables to accommodate meals and cooking, and two fire pits. The rushing river is alongside and below the cliffside. Next door to bathrooms and a HUGE gorgeous meadow. Plenty of trails, a waterfall, and relaxation at its finest. Will definitely be returning.
Bathroom facilities were clean, pool was clean had a bunch of activities for kids to do my daughter loved it. The staff was not the friendliest but not a bad park we stayed at a site near the end and you could smell the sewage area so that wasn’t too much fun but all in all it was a pretty fun place to stay.
Kinda small camping spots depending on which site you get. Has a boat launch so bring boats. No swimming access easily. Trails were over grown, park host said they haven’t gotten around to maintaining them. Would have been a better experience if people followed quiet time hours and just were respectful of others. We had super loud neighbors who partied with music until at least 2 am each night. Then blasted music all day long. It made the experience not enjoyable. My experiences it’s a campground for people who are going to be out boating in the daytime and partying in the night time.
If your looking for a campground that isn’t over run and up in the mountains this one is for you. Great size sites , 2 sites are reservable others are first come first serve. Great little lake for canoeing or kayaking. Little fishing docs located at several areas around the lake.
It's basically a few tent spots right off the road you can pull up to with your car. No amenities besides a vault toilet and no fee. Nothing fancy, but really beautiful, clean, nice rangers, and not busy at all. Get ready to dodge loads of potholes and deer as you travel up the gravel roads to get here, though
ALSO we had full data and cell service!
This was a last minute find for us on the 4th of July. There were a few sites left for us to choose from. The sites are not numbered but are designated by a rock ringed fire pit. We hammock camp and there are plenty of sites with trees positioned perfectly for hanging the hammocks. The lake is small but very beautiful. We did bring our kayaks but didn't launch them. There is a launching area but it's pretty mucky and there are a lot of downed trees in the water. I only saw one really great beach area to pull up to but it was already claimed by another small boat. There are trails all over leading from the campsites to the lake and around it. We also met other campers that had hiked a trail from Hebo lake to South Lake which was about a 7 mile hike for them.
We will go back and try out South Lake again in the other seasons.
This campground is full of folks! It’s not remote if that is what you are looking for, but the location can’t be beat. They also have yurts and RV spots as well as tent camping. Great bike/walk path and paths to the ocean. Close to the aquarium and lighthouses. Lots to see and great town.
Recently updated/ added onto whitcomb has no pager or water. Lots of tall tree’s for shade and hammocks. Park has a boat launch for access to green peter reservoir. Good fishing and water skiing.
This was a pleasant surprise for us. The positives outweigh the couple of minor things, so we gave it 5/5.
- Walkway to Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum. Clearly marked and paved for easy stroll over to the museum.
- Pool on-site, but no hot tub. I did use the pool, but for someone like me who has extremely fair skin, only in the last hour of pool time, 8-9 p.m.)
- Spaces are long enough for big rigs, as long as you get the 65 foot sites. They have two sizes: 50 foot and 65 foot. I'd recommend the 65 foot sites for a big rig, so you have enough room to park your vehicle. There were no gravel sites - all sites were concrete pads.
- More than one laundry location. Main office building has two washers, two dryers. We didn't check out the other laundry building.
- More than one restroom location throughout park.
- Wifi was pretty decent, though spotty at times.
- The picnic table is modular. If you didn't need the table, it was easy to separate the two halves and have bench seating if seating was needed.
- While they had recycling containers in our section, there was only one trash receptacle clear across the park. And it was a trash compactor, so when you used your key code to open it, the stench was almost overwhelming.
- The entrance to the concrete pads was a little steep and might result in bottoming out. It was not a gentle slope, but a sharp incline.
We had a 10 day stay. Let me start with the positives:
- Most spaces have at least 10-12 feet of grass between.
- Nicely maintained.
- Nice location, lots of trees and grassy areas.
- Asphalt pads for most sites, some premium sites have a concrete pad for RV/trailer/camper with asphalt in front.
- Decent wifi during the day, but slow as molasses at night. Assuming people streaming or downloading.
- One way route around the park.
- Road is narrow and winding, larger rigs have issues with staying on path.
- Mostly back-in spaces, which combined with the road, makes for interesting times getting your rig settled.
- Spaces are fairly short, especially on Standard sites. We barely fit our 39’ Class A and a 2 door Jeep Wrangler. If our vehicle had been any longer, we would have had to park in overflow parking. We saw a lot of fifth wheels with no other vehicle in the space, we assumed they were in the overflow area.
- No real spot to unhook a tow, except for the overflow parking area, which has a wider road portion.
- Some signs of semi-permanent residents.
- If you have a satellite, I am not sure the shady/trees spots would orient. We saw a lot of tailgater dishes at front of spots (we had a lawn spot with landscaping, but not in the trees).
- Grassy lawn area is large enough to require weekly maintenance and the lawn mowing can be annoying.
- ALL spots require jack pads. Having not stayed in too many parks with asphalt, this was a surprise for us. They did not mention at checkin, but we got a polite email the next morning.
- Billed as a luxury rv park. Price does not reflect that. No pool, just laundry/showers/restrooms.
- Freeway noise. Very close to I-5. Louder on the side of park closest to street and entrance.
