Good, but not awesome.

The camping for RV’s with hookups is iffy. It’s very close to the highway and the sites are extremely close to one another. Our site in particular had hookups in all the wrongs places and a steep hill directly behind it (not great for families with little ones). Overall though, the campground was good. A lot of wonderful hiking trails and an adjacent biking trail.

We had a bad spot

I heard good things about this place but experienced something else. I think we just had a bad spot and it kinda ruined it for us. Had to scoop elk poop when we got there. Was out in a field and had no privacy. There was a little trail that took you out to shore. Lots of people getting shellfish. Stores nearby. Would I come back? Probably not.

Nice place

Friends and family had a good time. A few stores nearby for essentials. Sites are spacious. Bathrooms are okay. Beautiful view and beach. I would come back.

Tall trees abound at Tall Chief

Helpful, friendly staff. Large private sites. It feels like you are deep in the PNW rainforest but you close to amenities and shopping.

Great for quick overnight trips

Sites are extremely close together. Some campers are live in. The common areas are awesome, and the owner is the sweetest lady!

Decent campground with quick trail access

Decent campground, close to Seattle. It’s about 15 min from nearest gas station. Campground even had phone service (TMobile). Bathrooms were relatively clean. Each site had good privacy considering how many spots there were. Best spots were along the river, with exception of one of them. There are tons of nearby hikes, including the ever popular Rachel Lake.

The road was nearby but traffic noise wasn’t too bad. Given how many popular trails there are off the forest service roads, still plan on arriving early. There were also lots of great dispersed camping areas just past this campground.

So Scenic and Private

Disclaimer: the road from highway 101 to the campground has SO MANY potholes. Big ones that we had to navigate in our RV but nothing that made it too hard to access the campground.

There are 15 sites and most are along a river with private access from your campsite. We loved staying here! There is a lot of privacy between each site too.

Bathrooms are very limited (just 2 outhouses) and obviously no hook ups.

There is a hike with a trailhead 2 miles from the campsite. We walked there and it was a milder way walk uphill to the trail head and then the .8 mile hike heads to a pretty waterfall which you can walk behind.

Good Resting Spot

We stayed for 1 night in the RV area so we could have full hook ups. It’s was nice that each spot has water, power AND it’s own sewer hook up.

The reason for only 3 stars was there was absolutely no privacy between sites, and we had neighbors on both sides as well as behind our site was a campsite. We were surrounded by other people when we were hoping for at least some trees between sites.

There is a large park across highway 101. There is a crosswalk and a light to press so cars know you’re crossing the road but it was still a little scary as there is a blind corner that approaches the crosswalk.

The camp host was VERY friendly and gave our daughter a ranger badge which was very thoughtful.

We’d come back, but not for more than a night.

Quaint little spot close to the beach.

Quaint park. The tent spots are clustered together in 2 areas with a shared covered pavilion. Unfortunately the showered were closed, likely due to Covid. I had the whole upper area to myself but it's also the worst air quality the PNW has seen ever. I ended up camping in my car which was nice bc it rained. Overall, not a bad place to camp at all. Id stay again. Close to the beach.

Spacious

Very spacious park! The RV sites are in cul da sacs so each one has a good 30 feet or so between campers. It’s a short walk to the river and the beach. When we were there last week (Mid September) we saw an elk herd and salmon going up river to spawn.
