Sits on the side of a river, at a bridge. Appears to be a number of open i.e. treeless shadeless sites. It is also a marina and boat launch for people who fish. Camp store is also a cafe. My experience is with the cafe. The cook is not competent. If you plan to stop there for the food, take an extra 1/2 hr and find somewhere else.

Small park on Puget Sound Waterfront site. No waterfront campsites. One restroom for the park. Water at spigots in 3-4 locations around park. Electric connections are located such that at back-in sites electric is on the left, while pull through sites electric is on the right. This is the reverse of all campgrounds we have ever been to. If you select this park, bring very long extra extension cords. Excellent park for tents. Some Yurts are available. Park ranger service is inattentive due to budget cuts. Camp host was not visibly present.

A short drive or 15 minute walk to the beach (ocean), or the lakeside. Rowboats, canoes and kayaks are available for rent at the lake. Concession stand/restrooms at the beach. Beach is long: over 1 mile, mostly rocky but walkable and playable for kids. Has lots of driftwood for building forts etc., and good winds for kites. Fishing in the lake (don't know about licenses, as I don't fish). Has lots of shady RV sites, some quite large, many pull throughs. Restrooms are clean and spartan. Shower is 3 minutes of hot water for a token, and free if you like cold water. Campside water is potable but not too tasty. Observed no wild critters other than deer. Lots of nettle bushes, so be prepared. Like this park, will stay here again.
Date of Stay: June, 2010
Stayed three nights mid June 2010. RV park is say about 1/2 or more, permanent residents. Showers are fine, $1- for 6 minutes, terrific pressure and plenty of hot water. One shower and one toilet room on each side of the coin operated laundry. While unable to book a specific site and told that was not done, it was apparent to us that regular users were given reserved site treatment and preferential attention. No fire pits. Noisy location on north side of a well traveled state arterial. Close to all, but that's not saying much. With no prior knowledge of the area we stayed 3 nights: our mistake, one would have been plenty. See the laser show and tour at Grand Coulee Dam, spend some time in the visitor center, that's it. There is no more unless you fish or kill animals. Then it's probably a fine area. We drove around, saw the other in-town RV park, it's above town with little to no shade and NO grass. Other camp locations are quite a ways out of town, but on Banks Lake or Lake Roosevelt. We won't be back.

This Park charges extra for everything: fee for kids, fee for pet, fee for sewer, fee for cable TV, fee if you leave one minute late. Assigned site 49 was not maintained. Picnic table old/nearly fall-down shape. Site was full of berry vines, brush, tree branches. Access road to the site was pot-holed, muddy. Site was very wet with no apparent drainage. Site not prepared for a trailer or motorhome: rutted and uneven. Fire pit sited at roadway, not at trailer or tent site. Throughout the park grounds were pot-holed, muddy, no effort made to fill holes or arrange drainage. No trash barrels near campsites, only one dumpster, located near restrooms. Restrooms/showers at front of park, quite a distance from tent and most RV sites. Camp store open was only in the AM, only for a few hours. Closed most of the time. Cannot comment on horses or their condition. To us, this park is not kid or pet friendly as one must pay extra for each and for each day: two adults, two kids, one dog means the site fee, plus a charge for each kid and the dog for each day, plus taxes. Cable TV sites are $10 more per day, sewer sites are $5-$10/more each day. Electrical outlets are not maintained: no covers, plugs not covered. Water faucet is on the same post as the electric, possible hazard. We've camped in tents, tent trailers, and travel trailers for over 30 years, in CA, OR, WA. This is one of the 'least value for money' places we've ever been. Only good point: it's west of 101 and at the North end of the main town. Won't be back, cannot recommend.
