As others have said, this campground is on the reservoir at Moses Lake, but it is maybe 20-30 minutes from town. There are really several sections to this campground and they each have a different feel. I am not much of a fisherman, and have always stopped here while traveling, but I have always found it relaxing. If you are a fisherman, you will probably love this campground. Otherwise it would be a nice place to spend a weekend relaxing with friends.
The RV sites are separated into groups of circles where the sites radiate off like spokes on a wheel. Tall poplars surround these groups to break up the wind that can really get blowing in this area of the state. The sites themselves are gravel driveways in a grass field. There are trees within each group but there is very little privacy, even though the sites are quite large. These sites have access to a single restroom with flush toilets and showers. However, the restroom is starting to show its age quite badly.
The tent sites are in two loops amongst some trees. These are definitely my favorites spots in the campground. The sites are gravel/dirt driveways in a more rustic and less grassy setting. These sites are not level, so any RV will require some effort if you care about that. Privacy is still not great but it is better than the RV sites. The biggest issue with the tent sites is that the restrooms are pit toilets (I believe, but I didn’t go in).
Hard packed sandy road takes you out here. We arrived way after dark. Beware of soft sand on the shoulders but overall 40+ foot rigs can make it as the road is very wide. Head back 2-3 miles and you’ll see tons of other people. We just parked right off the road for the least risk of getting stuck in the sand. Woke up to an amazing sun rise and were able to let the dogs hang off leash before everyone started getting on their ATVs. For sure a cool place to just drink coffee and people watch in the sand!
Fun spot. Nice people. It's definitely off-grid. After turning on Road E NE and going about a mile, was like 6-7 miles on a gravel, but decent, road. They put up some little blue sticks on the poles/posts along the way, so we didn't get lost.
Quiet, beautiful sunset and had a clear night full of stars!
They have farm animals that the kids could see. The baby rabbits are so cute!
Other than the rocky road and the mosquitoes, was a good spot to visit.
It's privately owned and the owners close a gate at night. They're also working on a camp store!…in case you run out of bug spray, or water. Enjoy!! 🙂
I seriously love this campground. Went there one week ago for the weekend, Friday night was really windy during the night. They have a store, kayak/paddle board rentals, bathrooms and showers (bring 50cents coins!). The lake is so refreshing! It’s super hot there and I could spend all day swimming in the lake. And the best part is the view. Is so beautiful! I’d definitely come back.
We tent camped at the campground here a few times. The swimming area is a short walk away. There’s also a second swimming area and a playground within the park that is a quick drive. There is an on-site store and snack shack. We love this place. The kids have a blast. There are clean bathrooms with showers.
Downfalls:: It can get pretty windy and the raccoons and mosquitoes can be pretty pesky. Also one year we went at the end of August during wild fire season so it was a little smokey.
