We reserved sites 1 and 2 for our 29’ RV and friend’s tents (12 total people + 3 dogs) on Memorial Day weekend. We had plenty of space and the sites felt secluded from the other camp sites. We had a blast. You lose any GPS/phone reception in near by Randle but the directions from the camp’s website is spot on. Follow those directions and you’re golden. The flea market in near by Packwood is a must see! Each site includes picnic table and fire pit with fresh water near by.
