We stayed in Site # 77 it is a pull through with Full hook up, big & semi private. The lake is across t he street which the parking area can fill up quick. The boat launch is a zoo on the weekends there's is a long line to launch & take you boat out. During the week not so bad. We had cell service yet some WIFI (which is in the truck) so when the truck was running we had Wifi. We had a few baby deer in the campground always a pleasure.
The camp hosts sell firewood
The lake is big & beautiful with great views of Mt Rainier. Good fishing and we found a lot of Lures on old tree stumps and along the shore while kayaking. There are a lot of motorboats with them pulling tubes and some that don't care if they swamp you or not. We saw several folks launch their boat & primitive camp.
Mt. Rainier is amazing we enjoyed going into the park many times checking it all out. On the way to Mt. Rainier you pass a places called Ex-Nihilo Metal Sculpture Park which the guy dose a great job on big sculptures. Donations welcome keeps him building more.
We went to the grove of the Patriarchs with trees over 1000 years old. Big Pines, cedars & Dougless firs.
Beautiful area, nice campground.
Loved it here. The campground was well maintained and sites were super nice. Lake was amazing as well.
Nice lake to swim in or boat. Fishing off docks lots of hiking and biking. Great park. Awesome group sites but haven’t used them yet
Pretty cool lake. We went during a crazy drought so the lake was SUPER low, but folks were still catching fish. The sites are good, got some pull throughs. Pretty good for kids to ride bikes around. Otherwise pretty typical, on the high end.
Nice place, close, lots of thing to do with the kid
The campground is well maintained. There are lots of RV sites. The group sites are amazing, they have individual and large group fire pits. The bathrooms have been remodeled and are very clean. There is a nice park with a dedicated swim area, ticks for boats. The lake is crystal clear.
Huge campground. Alder Dam is great to visit, camp sites are close but everyone including employees & campers were very friendly. Full hook ups.
Place is great for family and group camping.
Weve been coming back again and only damper to this year was the dam in Tacoma was partially drained causing a “low tide” which exposed the dirt and poor beach area… usually when water is at normal level the beach is all sand and water is clean and clear. Some camping sites have a steep walkway to them but each year we come we find a better spot and take it next year. Overall a great place to go!
This place is beautiful!! There are trails to explore, a sandy beach area that is also for public access, a boat launch and boat dock. The water is that beautiful blue/green glacier water color. The campground we stayed at did not have designated fire rings, but did have a metal BBQ that we used for the kids to make s'mores on. Will definitely be going here again!
