Remote, yet close to the city

We went here for our test run of our RV. Nice quiet area in great forest. Lots of hiking around, if you can find the loop. Electrical only. No water or sewer at the site.

Great !

We (family of 4) stayed here for two nights. Our 4 & 7 year old had a great time hiking the easy trails, fishing, exploring and chatting with other campers. Very close (1hr) to Seattle, but far enough to forget the city. Spaces were spread well, not cramped together. C.C.C. Trail access off…

Pretty and clean, but a bit cramped

The campground in general was very nice: playgrounds and a lake nearby, and suitably close to a number of small towns and the Alder Lake Dam to have stuff to check out.

Unfortunately, our campsite (53) wasn't trimmed back sufficiently, so the grassy area where you'd normally put a tent was about…

  • Firewood was $7 a bundle from the camp host, and they had carts to bring it back to your campsite.
  • The swimming area is marked off by big booms and was fairly calm.

Good local option

This is a comfortable sized campground. Some of the sites have at least a little privacy.  Some of the sites are not very level for a tent.  There are some hiking trails that are not too long.  There is also access to the water across the street.  The canal offers options for fishing and shell…

Very nice smaller park

RV sites 1, 2, 4, 9, and 11 will be easier to back in to. The other full hook up sites are 90° approaches. Very nice park for playground and a very nice venue building. A lot of picnic tables in the open and in the shade of trees.
Small rocky beach only accessable when the is not to…

Pretty and busy

Nice campground on the lake with several loops, and most sites having some privacy. The rangers were super nice. This campground is reservable and VERY busy. The vault toilets were clean(seemed new!), and the potable water was very good. All of the sites had picnic tables and fire pits. There are a…

Cozy Spot

Cute campground very close to Seattle and Bellevue right on the lake. Beautiful beach area, basketball courts, playground, and volleyball right at the site. Spots are a little tight. Looks like they cater mostly to day use and corporate events during season. But they do take great care of the…

Nice campground in the woods

I've stayed here many times over the years. I love how quiet and woodsy it is here. Lots of fun spots along the river to enjoy. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked.

Private Campground!

Private group campground with 7 sites. River access. Vault toilet, no water. Road noise during busy times can be a bit much. Beautiful views from camp. No cell service!

Beautiful and Spacious

We stayed for seven nights in this beautiful campground. Our spot was a very spacious pull through with water and electric. Campground was completely full on weekends but we had it to ourselves during the week. Walking distance to the day use beach area. Very clean showers. Well maintained sites…

Beautiful and fun but tight sites

We had a blast at Fay Bainbridge. There was tons to do for our toddler, and lots of opportunities for us to enjoy the part too. The views are incredible and beautiful is beautiful. Our only complaint is the campsites are VERY close together. We are thankful so many people can enjoy the beautiful…

Great clean bathrooms!

Peaceful, pretty, private, with beautifully clean cedar bathroom/showers and thoughtful touches, like a box of tissues in the laundry and nice-smelling lavender hand soaps provided. We had a lovely start to our volcano-climbing honeymoon here.
