Camping in a teardrop trailer. Luxuriously primitive.
Primarily RV with nice Tent area

This is primarily an RV park, with monthly rates. It is very well manicured and maintained.

There is however a nice tenting area with plenty of shade and grass. This is separate from the RVs and you might be the only one in the tent area. There was only one other group during our stay of a few days. Leave your vehicle in the parking area and walk to your site.

It's a good place to stop if you're on your way through, or visiting in the area. Much nicer than anything else in the area.

Family oriented and busy. Beautiful beach.

The campground is very family oriented and active. Lots of kids on bikes and scooters. Don't be surprised to find them riding through your site.

A short walk on the trail over the dunes leads to a beautiful beach. This is the primary attraction.

Many sites are very close together, but there are a few with a little more distance. I wouldn't say any are private. Sites on the inside of the loops are setup for tents or a small camper and generally have more space. Site F19 is larger and near the restroom path which provides for more distance from neighbors. I might choose F1 if we were to stay again. It's an RV site, but you could be further from the road.

Secluded island across from Downtown St Helens

Accessible by boat or kayak. Sites are primitive, no tables. This is on the columbia river water kayak trail.

On Mayfield Lake

The Mayfield Lake is the main attraction. Be sure to visit the day use area across the road for lake access with swimming, picnic, and a dog park on the water.

Very good privacy for the standard campsite loop. Standard campsites are either pull through or back in.

There's a trail around the edge of the lake in campsite loop. Find the point, you wont be disappointed.
