I camp therefore I am.
This is a short term trailer park

there are a lot of amenities in this resort which I'm sure can over ride the layout. The sites are so close together you can almost touch at RV next to you with your awning. The privacy in this resort is zero. It does have a very park like feel and like said with all the amenities there is lots to do for family fun but its just not my type of camping. It has the look and feel of trailer park.

My favorite Washington State Park

I have stay her many times over the years as a child and and adult. This is a beautiful camp ground on Mayfield lake there is something for everyone here. It has a large swimming area, hiking trails, playgrounds, boating, fishing just to name a few. Most of the sites are pretty private Many with power and water. I would say this place has very few cons. The mosquito's can get bad at times but the biggest downfall is that this place books up so fast. Make reservations early

A close get away

I have camped here a number of times over the years. This is a nice woodsy campground just south of Olympia, WA located on Deep lake. It has a very old growth forest feel to it. This campground offers many activities: hiking trails, fitness trails,fishing, boat rental, and even a concession stand. The fishing is good for trout,bass, and sun fish. This park offers both hookup and non utility tent sites as well as glamping tents.

Cons: most of the hookup sites are in a field with zero privacy but there are a few that are much better like the last spot I stayed at.

The primitive sites are better but the roads are quite narrow with limited access for RV's.

The "Glamping tents"are very nice but crazy expensive at over $300 a night. Like most of the State Parks reservations book up quickly so it pays to plan ahead

Pros: fishing is pretty good even from shore. The day use area is great but pretty rustic. Lots of trails to hike but not as well marked as I would expect. Really close to Seattle so it is ideal for a weekend getaway Friday after work.

First time at Seaquest State Park

It's a really pretty park. Very family friendly. The day use area is huge with a playground. Dry wooded sites. Stayed in a hookup spot with power and water. Pretty large spot and well kept. The full hookup spot are just a field. I hate that type spot, I prefer more privacy when I camp and the site I was in was really nice. The park is well laid out with a good mix of RV and tent sites plus yurts and a couple walkin sites. The restrooms are clean. They have pay showers. Over all it's a very nice place to camp and I would recommend it.

A really great state park

I've stayed here many times. It is a well laid out campground with lots of amenities. The sites are fairly private with a fair mix of hookup and tent sites plus several Yerts too. The restrooms are centrally located with showers and are cleaned often.

There are several hiking trails and the river is gorgeous. It has a huge day use area and a group site is available. A dump site is also available for RV's.

Its reasonably close to the city within an hour or two. 45 minutes for me so it is good for a weekend getaway but supplies are not far if you forget something.

Pros: lots of sites and lots to do. Good clean restrooms. Lots of wildlife.

Cons: the hookup sites have power only; no water so RV'ers fill your water tanks before you arrive. Children at play can be really loud but hey they're kids what do you expect. Some of the wildlife can be very bold do to people thinking it's ok to feed them. (Raccoons)

overall I recommend this campground and will be back myself many more times.

Peaceful and quiet getaway

I have visited this campground many times. It is a small Forest Service campground next to the south fork of the Snoqualmie river. The site well shaded and fairly privet for the most part. No real ammenaties so I would call this organized bone docking. Camp host is on site #2 and firewood is available. Vault style toilets are available and a hand operated well pump for drinking water is at the entrance. Hiking abounds around the campground. The river is cold and shallow but very peaceful. With no playground or organized swimming area there aren't a lot of children but those that are there can have fun exploring, splashing in the river, bike riding and so on.

Pros: woodsy, peaceful, relatively quiet, close Seattle so you can go camping Friday after work. Reasonably priced.

Cons: yes you can hear the freeway. If you close your eyes and relax it Lund like the river until you hear a jakebrake but that's not very often. Most sites are not reservable but rarely is the park full. Road to Tinkham can be pretty rough.

All in all this is one of my favorite quick getaways close to home and will return many more times.
