Convenience store is located on grounds and a nice restaurant, Spiffy's, is located just 1/4 mile away. The draw back here is it floods in the winter months including when I was here. The south half of the rv park goes under water and there are massive standing puddles in most of the sites when it rains, and remember, this is Washington. The site host is friendly and doing what he can to make this a nice campground. But more work is needed to keep it dry. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This has to be the worst KOA we've ever stayed at. The park is full of permanent residents
and is very run down !! We would have moved but it was July 4th weeekend and were stuck. The entry roads and sites are gravel/dirt mix and full of large pot holes. Although we got a 40 footer into our pull thru site, it was very tight - 2-3 feet max between sites. Our levelers sunk 6+ inches due to a "known" water leak under our site. Note: This Kampground claims to offer 50amp service, a pond, and more that doesn't exist - it's all planned future expansion and upgrades. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Not easy in or out. Appeared rather seedy look CG. Electrical hookups, at least our site,
are poor. we weren't even able to run l A/C due to low voltage on their 30 amp outlet. It was a tight, limb-scraping turn for our 36-ft MH. Certainly not
room for MH longer. Would never stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There's a lot to like about this campground. There are two big pools – family and adult-only, two activity centers – again family and adult-only (plus Wi-Fi in each), plus Mt Rainier and St Helens and be seen on clear days. The campground itself is about 20 minutes east of Chehalis and about 15 minutes from the interstate. Sections F and especially G are popular with the big rigs. This is at the top of the hill and is a bit more open than the other areas of this big park. There are some full hook up sites in these sections and scattered around other areas of the campground but be aware that, like most Thousand Trails, sites are being sold to annuals and they like having sewer hookups. Many of the sites in this area have enough of a view of the southern sky to get satellite TV. Our 4G Verizon Internet was excellent. There’s a laundry, game room, store, and chapel in the woods. Chehalis is the very first Thousand Trails and one can’t help but wish all the Thousand Trails offered the camping experience it does. While we saw things that need attention (for instance, one section is closed to all but small campers and tents due to electric problems), we rate Chehalis as one of the better Thousand Trails we’ve visited thus far. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price is for TTN Members. Limited number of sewer sites. Only FOX air TV. Good Verizon phone & 4G data. This is the first TTN park so is somewhat dated. Power is poor. Most facilities shut down during the winter. Lots of Blackberries this time of year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park with friendly helpful staff. Lots of activities. Yes there are trees and hills, you are after all in the mountains. Lots of sites for large rigs: we are 37 feet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very wooded, with large sites. Nice pool and playgrounds for the kids. Easy access to I-5 and Chehalis and Centralia, as well as Pacific beaches or Mt Rainier for day trips. Only 2 loops have sewer, but all have water and power. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate for Thousand Trails members. The campground staff is helpful and friendly and the amenities are in good condition. There are still issues with electrical in some parts of the campground. Sewer is available in some areas but not many sites. 30 amp power is consistent and we had no problem in G Section. Sites are fairly large some with shade others open to the sun. No cell, our Wi-Fi worked, 12 "over-the-air" TV stations. For services it is some distance to Chehalis, an IGA in Toledo is closer. Laundry room is clean but expensive compared with other campgrounds. There is a grade up away from the road and the guard shack entering the park. The main roads are asphalt, the loops packed gravel with speed bumps. This is a pleasant campground, an hour from either Mount St. Helens or Mount Rainier. We will return when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We did not actually stay at this park because we drove in and left immediately as it was too steep for our liking. I did not like pulling my big 5th wheel up the very steep grades here. Furthermore, I did not find the signage here too helpful to find our assigned site. Had I found the site, we might have decided to stay. Also, for an overnight stay, it was too far down a narrow highway from the interstate for us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was the first park in the TT system. Sites are okay, but some are small. Had to look hard for a large enough site. Poor electric service. The place needs some maintenance. Too much tree coverage for satellite service. Dirt roads, lots of hills. Has a dog park. Good Verizon cell and air card service. Nice pool. Good book exchange. We would stay here again overnight, but not for a longer time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical TT park. Good for camping. Sites spaced out so plenty of room. Electric power not all that good. Sites not especially level but good enough. Heavily wooded, park on dirt, don't expect to get satellite TV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a membership facility but now that Encore owns it, they have opened it up to non-members. Beautiful grounds are well taken care of. Beautiful view of Mt. St. Helens on the walking trail. We will come back year after year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects senior pass. If you don't need hookups or sewer dump and you like quiet forest glades, this is your park! Lovely park, well maintained. Some of the sites are a little tricky and not very level but there were a few good-sized rigs there. Mostly tent campers. Since it's not on the water, no jet skis or boat noise. Nice hiking trails. Definitely will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for an overnight stop on our way from Seattle to Bend. Several sites were available on Friday night at 9PM. There was a ranger patrolling during our arrival which was nice to see at such a small park. Really liked the dense tree cover, the day use area seemed nice and overall this seemed to be a great no-reservation park for a quick getaway or stop-over. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The RV campsite is across the road from the Lewis and Clark State Park, right next to Highway 12. There are 8 sites; some of the sites are slightly back from the road, but it's hard to get away from the constant noise of passing cars and trucks. If most of the sites are taken, backing in a trailer (especially a long one) could be a challenge, as there isn't too much room to maneuver. There's a camp host but they are not very helpful. The camp sites in the main part of the park have no hookups and are much more pleasant and quiet; they cost $19.00/ night. Unless having a sewer hookup is really important, I wouldn't recommend their full hookup site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a lovely, small state park nestled among a fern and moss-filled old growth forest. In May, when the weather is cold and wet, it is a scenic, private place to be. Only part of the campsite is open at this time of year and there were only a few sites that are big enough for a 33' fifth wheel. Bigger rigs just won't fit. Most of the sites that were open do not have electricity or water, but we were able to take the "host" site, which was pretty and perfect for a short stay. Note that cell phone service is very spotty in this beautiful back road. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful state park located in old-growth forest surrounded by farms close to the junction of I-5 and US 12. There are two campgrounds. There are 25 non-hookup sites located in the forest with lots of shade, privacy, and room in between the sites. There are 10 RV sites in an open field next to the Jackson Highway which bisects the park. We camped in the non-hookup campground. This park would have rated a ten except that the bathroom was rather far from the sites and that there was no maps for the extensive trail system in the park. It is easy to get lost! Otherwise, a fantastic campground! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The camping area is very tight and very gloomy with few level sites suitable for RVs. Sites are quite close together. There was no campground host nor any sign of staff. Self check-in. The park as a whole is quite pretty but very old, and the camping area is not its best feature. On a hot day in summer it would be a good place to escape the heat, as all the sites are thoroughly shaded. While I may choose to visit the day-use area again, I would probably not choose to camp here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place to park our travel trailer, easy to find, and back-in sites are wide enough to make siting easy. Upon arrival RV park hostess was friendly and helpful. Reservations had been made with a phone call without credit card required and check-in at the clubhouse was easy to transact. We do not golf, but found the clubhouse, restaurant, and RV park area as quiet, very clean and friendly. The restaurant food was delicious and serving personnel were efficient and friendly. Small airport across the road was quiet with very few small planes landing or taking off. Would come here again when in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Showers and bathrooms were not located at the RV sites, but rather in the clubhouse. Wireless Internet was advertised as being available, but it was available (and poor I would add) only at the clubhouse and not at the RV sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great location for golf lovers. Perfect course and great restaurant within walking distance. We came in a 45 foot motor home, towing and it was horrible getting out! We got hung up and jack-knifed in the middle of the road. When leaving, be sure to make a very wide swing to miss the ditches. Drive carefully!!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The location is OK. Fairly quiet, across from an airport. Golf course is right behind the RV park and is nice to look at. No amenities at all. Just the pad and hookups. Here are the problems: 1) The internet rate was lower than the price they wanted to charge me at check in. I refused the higher rate and they charged me the lower rate. 2) In less than 24 hours we had a golf ball wizz by our heads and bounce off the back of the RV. There is a protection fence, but it only covers half the sites. The other half are wide open to the 1st fairway. We demanded and moved to a space behind the netting. 3) The golf course maintenance mowers start up at 05:30 and mow the fairways every day. If you're a golfer, the course looks nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The spaces are level cement pads with gravel between sites. Very clean set up. The distant view is mountains and in closer, the small airport. The golf course in beautiful, and directly behind us. Plenty of shopping nearby including Wal-Mart and outlets at exit 82. This is between 77 & 79. The best value is a combination with golf and RV park. There are no facilities on the campground only at the golf course, so they take self-contained RVs only. Also note that the golf course starts it's maintenance at 5 am. We would camp here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This a relatively new RV park with level cement slabs for the RV. It is located south of I-5 about a mile away with good access roads. Trailer Life directory says to exit at Exit 79 but the best way is to exit at Exit 77 and follow the signs to the park. Good 50 amp electrical. Water pressure is high so a regulator is needed. The RV park is all back in adjacent to their golf course. If your a golfer they have a stay and play package which gives a reduced rate on golf and RV park. We stayed two nights and two rounds of golf for $133 which includes a golf cart to use during your stay and rounds of golf. They accept Good Sam. The staff are very friendly and helpful and gave the impression other amenities will be included in the future. There is a nice restaurant and roof top bar at the clubhouse. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV facility works well for us because it is close to the town and camping is offered at a reasonable price. The fact that some bays have 50 amp electric is a bonus. The sites are paved and mostly shaded, and water is available. There is a dump nearby. The restroom facilities are minimal, there being curtains across the toilets. However, they were reasonably clean. There is cable hookup, but we only managed to get one channel. We used our antenna for TV instead. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This little campground is a great find. It is quiet, grassy, and you have the place to yourself as there are no campfires allowed. I would guess that would deter a lot of weekend campers. The place is well taken care of and is close to town and I-5. We used this place as a home base to access a couple of the paved rails to trails for biking. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a fancy place, but it is clean and comfortable. Back-in sites only, no pull-thru's. While there is no sewer, there is a dump station on the road out of the RV Park. Only $15 for 30amp or 50amp electricity. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This municipal RV park worked well for us. We were out all day and spent little time there. Chehalis is a noisy place with trains passing through at all hours. We had the windows open at night and were able to sleep well. We were one of two campers in the entire park which was well maintained and had shady trees. We did not use the bathroom facilities. Good value for money. We will us the park again when next we return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place for an overnight stop while traveling the I-5. Nothing fancy but a clean quiet place to spend a night or even a few. Will definitely use this as a night stop in the future when traveling up or down I-5. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We checked this campground out after we already had a site elsewhere. The city of Chehalis runs this campground in their city park. It is adjacent to the ball fields, etc. Spaces are available on a first come basis, unless their is a concert or event.In that case they will reserve some spaces. Sites are fairly level, long & spacious. Some sites have 50 amp & a dump is available. Exit 76 head west on Rice St. Take 2nd entrance to park. Looks like a great value. Pay station at the park for $15 payment. Phone # is good weekdays only. We would camp here! We camped here in a Motorhome.
