We love this place! We camped with another family: they pitched their tent on our campsite. 4 kids plus 2 dogs equal good times! The park is huge: lots of wide open grassy space. We were in site #2 which is right next to the large play structure. This would not be good if you didn't have kids, however was fabulous for us. Lots of trees for shade in the 1-27 "no hookup" sites. The sites with hookups were more open to sun but a few did have some shade trees. Showers/bathrooms were very clean. You can rent baseball equipment, horseshoes, basketballs, tennis equipment. They have a small "store" with ice, snacks, wood, some amenities like sunscreen and water toys. The park ranger put on a "talk" one morning for the kids, with snake skins and animal skulls and lots of info for them to learn about. There is a Texaco 1/4 mile away if you need more amenities and a Wal-Mart in East Wenatchee just 5 miles away too. Really loved this place!

The location is the good and the bad. Our family camps here every year with multiple families and we love the proximity to home. The thing we hate is the Interstate 90 noise. It's loud. This isn't a quiet campground where you hear crickets and birds. It's loud freeway noise. That being said, everyone has a great time hiking around the trails, swimming at the beach, playing on the play structure and fishing off the bridge nearby. There is a store across the freeway that we buy ice and other amenities from and the heavily wooded campsites keep everyone nice a cool on a hot day. Kids love riding their bikes around the site loop. It's truly fun if you can get past the noise and with kids in tow this isn't an issue. We camp in the loop with hookups and most sites are very level, including the tent pads.
