Great Spot!

Awesome little campground. Trails to walk & amazing customer service!!! Would love to return in the summer!

American Lake Camp Ground (JBLM)

Good little camp ground on post with almost everything you need. It is in the wilderness, on the lake, but it is also fairly close to stores and gas stations. Long term max is 28 days per spot. All hookups available trash laundry showers bathrooms fire pits as well as grills all in each spot

Nice State Park on donated PR Cate forest. Millersvanyia means "forest Glade".

Nice family park for camping, swimming, fishing, hiking, and limited hiking in old growth and 2nd generation forest.

CLOSE TO RIVER AND HIKING

VERY NICE CAMP GROUND RV UNDER 16FT WOULD WORK IN SEVERAL OF THE CAMPSITES. GREAT LOCATION FOR HIKING,FISHING,AND ALL AROUND OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

GREAT LOCATION TO HIKING TRIALS

VERY NICE CAMPSITE. VERY CLOSE TO LENA LAKE TRIAL HEAD. VERY QUIET AND VERY CLOSE TO THE RIVER.

Great paddle-in site

This is a great boat-in-only site. No running water but vault toilets. No reservations. Rack for kayaks above high tide. Nice alternative to the Oak Bay sites at Pt. Hadlock to the west. Open all year.

Beautiful trees but use has been restricted - no camping or beach access

This is a beautiful park overlooking the water. The trees are amazing, including some very big old-growth cedars. It is open for day use, but unfortunately it has been closed to overnight camping due to what they're describing as "tree diseases that may lead to tree falls." Beach access also has been limited due to erosion of the bluffs. It's still open for day use/picnicking.

This campgroud was spotless, quiet and beautiful.

Eastcreek is extremely quiet, impeccably maintained all the spaces are really spread out, so your neighbors aren’t right on top of you. It’s a beautiful campground with amazing natural scenery everywhere you look.

Closed

Road is currently closed, bummer.

Not coming back, but a cheap stop

It’s 9:30, and the full hookup sites are blaring “how to save a life” by the fray, two sites down there’s an odd couple with a trailer arguing over the generator. I can hear the crowd in the little cabins on the other side of the campground. There’s no privacy here. The sites are all right on top of each other. Just hope you get a day when the crowd is good. On the bright side, the rest of the sites are being considerate, it’s open in winter, they have showers, and there are three tent sites for $20/night. Ear plugs are of good use here. We are using it as a stop over on our way out to the other side of the peninsula.
