Maybe the reason I was not impressed was this was my last night camping on a 10 day vacation, and we stopped here, just because we didn't want to go home. The camp sites were small. Lots of Ada sites, nice hiking trail, bathrooms were well kept, there are coin showers. The water in this part was very red and did not look healthy. We spoke with a park ranger, who seemed to know nothing about the algae blooms, nor did he seem to care. Told us not to worry about it. Well I worried a little. We didn't eat anything we caught. We left to go get some dinner and when we got back we had a woman as a neighbor in the next campsite, who told us that she was about to steal our stuff
This is my favorite campground ever! We went late August 2018 and the lake was gorgeous! The campground is on the lake, beautiful views. Parking is difficult in some sites for trailers, due to being on a hill. The host was awesome, the creek that runs behind the host site leads to the lake. Bathrooms were clean. You are camping in a rainforest! Campground is on Southshore rd, I HIGHLY recommend taking the slow dirt Rd on Northshore Rd. Such gorgeous views, I saw a bear, maybe 2.
We arrived little later around 6 p.m. And being such a nice day there were only few sites left. Size of the sites varies but one we got we were avail to put up 2-2 person tent and 1- 4 person tent (only had one vehicle so used extra spot for vehicle as temt site.
Toilet was near by but it ran out of toilet paper next morning due to high number of people camping overnight. If there is any trouble of sorts, park ranger station was right there at the entrance of the camp sites.
It was hard to find pricing on camp online, it is $12 per site per night. And discovery pass is required. ( if you don't have one there is a slip there for you to pay for one as well) You get the little slip, fill out the info and out cash/check and deposit the envelope portion, keep the detachable slip and display on vehicle.
It got little chilly at night but wasn't too bad. One person said he got bitten by spider, but asides that didn't experience any mosquitos at this time of the year which is great for me.
Beach is walking distance. And you can walk around if you want we did spot a bald eagle early in the morning.
This place is little further from town so make sure you have everything you need if you want to get comfortable and enjoy the getaway.
Dog friendly and they recommend 6ft or shorter leash.
Dash Point State Park is your average, nice Washington State Park, with trees, grass, pathways etc. When we were there at the end of March, only about half the campground was open, and we were able to get a last-minute spot in the late afternoon on a Thursday. Sites are mid-sized, with some having more privacy than others.
Cons: While several other reviews talk of the cleanliness of the campground, we had the opposite experience, with large and small trash everywhere we walked (including a whole foam mattress thrown away). It was also pretty muddy, as well as loud (from the airplanes passing over head until the middle of the night).
Pros: Across the street, the day use area is amazing, with a lovely beach, picnic tables, hikes, etc. Generally a very nice place to spend the day.
Tips: Unless you're there with another group or family, avoid the spots that look like they're parallel on the map (9 & 10; 15 & 16 etc.) since they're basically one big site split up with two driveways right next to one another.
This is a very nice, typical Washington state park with plenty of trees, greenery, hiking, pathways and even a lake. There's a camp store along with several large outdoor kitchens that would be good to use for groups. Many of the structures like the kitchens and even bathrooms were built back in the 1930s by the CCC, which is pretty cool. It's just far enough off I-5 to not have the freeway noise, but close enough to be convenient. It's also nearby to Great Wolf Lodge if you're looking for a place to stay near there.
On the other hand, the RV sites especially are basically in a big field with a cement road going around it. The sites have tables and fire pits, but no privacy what-so-ever. The tent sites are slightly better, with more trees, but still very close to one another.
The campground also has glamping available (canvas permanent tents) that looked cool.
In general, I tend to avoid campgrounds where the majority of spots are taken by full-timers, preferring state parks and such. But this is nice and friendly enough, despite having many RVs and such that look like they've been there for years, that I wouldn't mind staying at while "passing through."
Nice, clean store at the front of the property including the cheapest gas in the area. The woman and her young daughter working at the front desk were super-nice and helpful. Camping and RV prices were very fair for the area ($20-$30).
Tent sites, as well as the swimming pool, are only open during the summer.
Looking to gently break your young kiddos into backpacking ? This campsite is a mile walk-in from the parking lot. It has fire rings, picnic tables, and water supply via the Dosewallips River. There is one section that requires a detour up a steep hillside, but other than that it's a flat walk. We used it as a training backpack trip for some of the younger Scouts in our troop. It has enough flat, open area in which to play, and the river was not too deep or fast-moving in October.
We needed to just get out of the city and do some camping therapy…. Manchester State park was perfect. It took no time to get there from Seattle and the park staff were GREAT and gave us some great tips for future visits. The camp site was perfect….clean and just what we needed to unwind. The park hostesses very nice and helpful as well. There was plenty to do hikes, beach combing and most of all quiet. Defiantly going back midweek getaways.
I love this campground I stayed here to complete a natural resource college assignment and I will return many times. Beautiful and has all the user rentals. Those are cool. I recommend this campground.
This is another great Grays Harbor County spot just south of Montesano. Like Lake Sylvia it is super family and pet friendly. The campsite is divided into two different areas…one for RVs and the other for tents. The facilities are all well maintained and the bathrooms have showers. It is a pretty quiet campground even though it is near a highway.
There are lots of spots to fish in the campground as well as the surrounding areas.
Set in a former logging camp above the town of Montesano, park life revolves around a large swimming and fishing lake. This site is super family friendly and pet friendly too.
There is a playground on site and TONS of old logging roses turned bike trails.
There are plenty of tent and RV sites and s few primitive sites for campers. There are showers a flushing toilets.
Really liked this campground- we actually didn't stay too long, though. We were headed up toward Bellingham area, and decided to take a pit stop and stay here 1 night and do some hiking the next morning before arriving in Bellingham. I wish we would have just kept driving though, because the weather wasn't too good. We woke up and were socked in with fog and rain. We decided to hike anyways because we really wanted to get a hike in in this area. As you can see from the pictures, it was very foggy and no view. At the end of the day, I was glad that we ended up hiking this beautiful area. Thankfully the rest of our trip in Washington was sunny and so beautiful. The campground looked really nice, big spaces. We actually ended up sleeping in our car because we didn't feel like setting up our tent in the rain. We got to the campground around 7:30pm, so it was already getting dark and it was super wet and muddy. Sleeping in the car worked great and we stayed warm and dry. The restrooms were within walking distance, and seemed pretty clean. There was only 1 other car in the campground that we saw!
The campground was great, but we only stayed 1 night because our main reason was to hike Saturday morning. We got an early morning start on Saturday to beat the hiking traffic. We really only slept at the campground and were there less than 10hrs total. The campground looked nice, and clean! The spots were a decent size, fit our car and tent. Table and fire ring within the campsite which was great! We used the table to hold our packs and food! Bathroom seemed to be pretty clean and had TP. Obviously because it’s a porta potty it didn’t smell the best. Campground was easy to find in the evening and within good distance to some awesome hikes. The weather held up for us and was sunny and blue skies. We thought it might rain but didn’t. We would definitely come back, but hopefully next time we will make a long weekend out of it.
Really liked the campground, but definitely loved that the hiking was amazing!! The campground was pretty clean, a little smaller, but we liked how well kept it was. The campsite spots are fairly big, and separated by some trees and shrubs. We like when campsites are separated by something because it doesn't feel like we are right next to our neighbors. We have been to some sites where the spots are small and right next to each other with no barriers. The bathrooms were pretty clean, but definitely bring your own toilet paper. They ran out toward the end of our stay. It was a little busy, but not too bad. The hiking was great, and nearby. There is also a walking path right next to the campground that my parents enjoyed going on and walking our dog. Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a leash. The campground is easy to find, and the road was great when we went. This place would be beautiful in the fall to come with all the changing colors of the trees.
The hiking around here is amazing and theres so many different things to do here. It’s close to the water, too which is really neat. They have a playground for kids, fields to play in and an awesome volleyball court. We will definitely come back once they reopen
The camper spots are really close together. There is a big field to play ride bikes walk dog etc . The beach is really nice and nearby and at low tide is so peaceful to take a walk. There’s group activities too which is great for the kids.
Gorgeous Lush Greenery everywhere you look. Beautiful sparkling amazing Lake. Lake Quinault Lodge is a must-see ,friendly people ,lots of hiking trails, campgrounds are amazing and clean running water bathrooms…
The hiking in this area was really amazing!!! The campground itself was okay- nothing too special. It was pretty busy when we came, so it seemed packed to us. It was also really loud at night, but we brought ear buds which helped tremendously. Campsites are small, but they have a small table and ring for a fire. When we went we were not able to do a fire because of the fires around the area. That was kind of a bummer but we obviously understand. The hiking was awesome!! Highly recommend getting some hikes in! We hit really good weather too, because it rained the weekend prior. Bathrooms are porta potty style and smelt really bad! Bring your own TP!
We have 33 campsites, Tent sites and some great pull through sites for Rv's and ORVs, 4 vault toilets that I do my best to keep clean and stocked of toilet paper. I sell firewood bundles with a kindling bundle in the middle wrapped in newspaper for 5 bucks, nice size bundles and/or Gator loads for 20, 15 and 10. I have a garden hose at my site for people to fill water containers and a power pole at my site for airing up mattresses, charging phones, ect. , I sometimes will paint rocks with kids while parents ride ORVs if possible but always have painted rocks hidden in Camp and throughout Capitol Forest and am owner of , Facebook group, Capitol Forest Rocks! #CFR I handout updated copies of Capitol Forest maps and trails, Campground phone number is 360 534 0163.
Deep park is located on a 7 mile long gravel road. The drive up is tight and not suitable for any type of trailer. The campground has level tent sights that offer a fantastic 360 degree view. There is no water, so bring your own and there a couple of vault toilets. This campground give you a clear view of the night sky and if it rains, some have shelters keep dry. Overall, for a night or two this campground is wonderful.
We stayed here during our trip to Olympic National Park. The campground was in one of the National Park's rainforest areas and felt quite magical. The sites are first come, but we didn't have trouble getting a site in late September. There is no potable water, so make sure to bring what you need or filter from the Quinault River. You do have to travel down a gravel road to get to the campsite. Just a bit further down the road is the trailhead to a few hikes. We did the Pony Bridge 5 mile out and back hike, which was beautifyl! The lack of potable water and shower facilities is a bit of a down side, but the beauty of the campgrounds makes up for that!
