Date of Stay: September, 2012
My family has camped here for the last 5 years, at least once a year. I have never seen the grounds unkept, or a shower dirty (we do camp after the kids are back in school). The spaces are large and semi-private in a wagon wheel design - we always stay close to the ocean, so there is no sewer hook-up, but we prefer the parks showers so this isn't a hardship. The beach is easily within walking distance, and the only "complaint" I have is that some dog owners let their dogs off leash and don't always clean up after them - when the park rangers see this, it is instantly corrected. (Don't think we're dog haters, our dog is on leash and her droppings are picked up - we just expect others to be as nice.) In September it does start to get cold at night, but we have always had great weather during the day. Even in September the park is busy, so plan ahead when making your reservations.

This is a beautiful, older state park. There are several sites located on the water, but most of them are not. The bathrooms are isolated, but very clean. We have a 24 foot travel trailer and camped in site 28 - our friends had a 25 foot motorhome and camped in site 26. Both had easy manuverability and plenty of room for awnings. Site 28 had a much better view of the water. We did notice that in some of the sites you would need to work around large trees. The down side is that in May it is really wet. We were prepared for some rain - but this was past rain and close to monsoon. We would stay again, but probably in August.

My family camps here at least once every year. The park is family and pet friendly with relatively private sites. You do have to work around large trees to put an awning up in some of the spaces, and there are only a handful of spaces for the "big rigs". The park would rate a 10 if they would put up a sound barrier for I-90, but it does quiet down in the evening and at night. The lake, trails, and the location make up for the noise. Truly a gem.

We camp here every May and September in the "ocean beach" sites. The spaces are large, semi-private, clean, steps away from the ocean, family and pet friendly. There is sewer available at the interior sites, but not the beach sites. Recently there have been campsite thieves due to the economy and people that wish to "upgrade" their camp gear, but we run a cable through our outside chairs and table with a padlock and haven't had any problems. This is one of the best Washington State Parks around for location, facilities, and atmosphere.

This is a very nice campground located between Leavenworth and Wenatchee. Beautiful sites are available on the river, or there are interior sites - all very well kept. The only drawback is that there is a migrant workers camp along side of the campground separated by a chain link fence. If that bothers you, the workers are gone by September.

This is a clean, well thought out park. There is the older area (interior) that looks like there could be mosquito's. There is the newer area (where we stay) that is close to the beach and worth the extra money. The spaces are large and semi-private for the most part. There is a handful of pull-thrus and yurts. The bathrooms are spotless in the morning, but get a little sandy by late afternoon - this IS the beach! We stay here twice a year, every year. Great place for the family.
