Beautiful camping in the dry camping bluff area, sites in the 50's and 60's. The hookup area sites were rather close together and not very appealing to us, but those on the bluff were secluded and nestled in the trees overlooking the Straits of Juan deFuca. We liked most of the sites in the 50's and some in the 60's which were more protected from the winds. Bring your generator as there isn't adequate sun for solar.

Basic for a WA state park. Conveniently off the highway and quiet. Down side is crackling high tension power lines running across the back. OK for a night or two.

This is a nice campground on Eagle Lake. We stayed in a non-hookup site nearer the water, but it looked as though most had power/water. The sites are huge. What really was bizarre is that the restrooms did not have showers - bizarre. The beach was nice, but no formal trails to the beach. The water is very shallow so fishing without a boat isn't really feasible. The dump is across the street.

This campground is very quiet ...that's because it's a zillion miles down a squirrelly road. The pluses is that the sites are huge and wooded, and there is a nice lake nearby. Despite expectations, most of the sites are not lake front...you pretty much have to drive. No hookups. The good news is that we paid just $17 with PPA. But since this was an overnight for us, next time we'll pick something closer to the road.

This was a very nice campground run by very nice people. Although there weren't very many camp sites for travelers, most of the permanents were up in another place, so they weren't an issue. It is a great campground for visiting Columbia and Jamestown. The bathrooms/showers were adequate, but needing an upgrade. We paid using our PPA membership...their standard rate of $49 is way too much.

This is an acceptable stopover campground if you pay the club rate of $20. Their $40 standard rate is too much. While near Hwy 99, is turns into white noise, so that's not a problem...the trains on the other side blowing their horn are. One unisex bathroom/pay shower was a disappointment, although spotless. The sites are nice green grass which was nice.

Hmmmm. I don't really believe in grading campgrounds "on a curve". This is an acceptable place to stopover but not an 8 or 10. There are only around 12 hookup site and they are pretty close together. The stream is about 2' wide. There is a millpond down the road. I really wouldn't bother to stay here next time we're traveling down 395.

This is really a fine campground. It is convenient, quiet, has reasonably large sites, nice restrooms & showers (free) and has an abundance of trails for walking and dogs. There is also a super logging museum that is part of the park within walking distance, plus it is a perfect place to camp for access to crater lake.

This is a fine campground on many park-like acres with large sites and lots of grass. It is in a valley near the confluence of the Kootenai and Moyie rivers. While it is remote enough to be isolated from road noise, there are train tracks nearby, so you may be awakened by a whistle.

For an overnight stopover, it's fine. Small in size and not too many spaces. On the plus side, it is a picturesque campground with acceptable sized spaces and very clean large restroom and shower facilities. On the down side, the road is fairly loud and it's 1/2 block from RR tracks, also loud. Table, but no campfire grate.

Nice Provincial Park on Kootenay Lake. Kokanee Creek runs through park where you can see the Kokanee Salmon spawning. As typical of BC's Provincial Parks, large secluded sites with no hookups. Walking distance to huge beach and park, but dogs not allowed. Lots of shade.

Date of Stay:

Very clean little park set in the cedar trees. Across street from Kootenay Lake, and walking distance to a beach area. some sites are along the creek, but all are taken by permanent/seasonal folks. We stayed in #5 which is picturesque and secluded - I highly recommend this site. Bath and showers are fine, but it costs a "loonie" for a shower.

We have been going to Pearrygin Lake SP since our kids were very young, but took an 8 year break up until this year. The original (east) park is basically unchanged with huge sites in a beautiful setting right on the lake. The park bought the adjacent Derry's resort which was always crammed with mediocre sites and facilities. Hopefully WA ST can spend some money to improve this (west) portion - it really needs it. In the original (east) campground, the bathrooms are pretty small for the number of people staying here, with no soap dispensers and only one shower. The other gripe is that the place is always packed because of the proximity to fun Winthrop and the family-friendly activities at the park and lake - unfortunately this makes for a cluttered look with most sites having multiple tents in addition to trailers and RVs, boats and cars .. everywhere, plus inflatables laying everywhere. So if you are looking for a quiet relaxing campground - this ain't it.

Nice clean campground with wide, spacious sites, lots of grass in a quiet area. Fantastic bath/shower facilities. Electric sites only. Immature shade trees. No Wi-Fi.

An oasis in an otherwise rather bleak countryside. Beautiful place. Nice big shade trees and large sites. Electric only. Great little lake with swim area.
