Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $28.00
Gravel and packed soil sites, slightly uneven. Shady on South and West side of loop. Fire ring and table at site, sites large and mowed grass. RV's mixed with cabin rentals, but proposed no problem, ie., noise, etc. We plan on returning for our family reunion. Restaurant closed during our stay. There are many sights to see, hiking and water activity in the area. No telephone reception, but WiFi excellent. We camped at Lone Fir Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Ape Caves, Yale Lake (1/2 mile way), Windy Ridge (70 miles away). Good report on park restaurant. We ate at the restaurant East of the park (food er good).
This is a nice "resort". Has what looked like to be nice clean rustic rooms. We stayed in the campground in a 32' RV. Sites are large enough but close to each other. There is nice gift shop and café, had hamburgers one night and they were very good. We did stop one morning for breakfast, but after looking around and saying is any one here a few times over the loud music playing in the kitchen we left. Also has a very nice pool, and small play ground. Bathrooms could use a lot of work, but useable...on site laundry, but can only be used after they are done later in the day, I did not go in. Free WFI that worked ok, No ATT cell. If your going to this area in the peak season I would call ahead, there are not many places to choose from in the area and the middle of the week in June was pretty busy. Make sure you take in the Ape Cave and other sights in area. I would stay here again. We camped at Lone Fir Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very quaint and rare resort, from my experience. It has RV spaces, tent spaces, and also cabins, a small hotel type building, an on site restaurant and gift shop, pool, club house and more. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The RV spaces are not paved, but seem pretty level. They are spacious with a picnic table, fir pit, and BBQ. The resort is near to some great hiking and Mt St Helens attractions as well, and the tiny town of Cougar WA is within walking distance with things to see and do. I'd definitely recommend this resort to those exploring the area. We camped at Lone Fir Resort in a Motorhome.
Since our group was to do a climb of Mt St Helens this CG was a good base for the trip and it is where you have to pick up your passes for the hiking trails so it was convenient. The park has a nice if a bit small pool (we didn't use it) a rec hall with TV, pool tables, couches dining tables and a propane grill outside to use. There is also a shower building and laundry on site. Propane is available if needed. Most of the sites tended to be a bit off-level and we were to the end of our levelers ability to get us there never quite getting fully level front to back. 50 amp power was NOT available at our site and we didn't see evidence of any pull through sites but there may have been one or two. CG was clean and the staff was friendly and not intrusive. There is a cafe on site and seems to be about the only one around as it tended to be quite busy at times. Breakfast was very good but don't expect silverware and china, strictly paper plates and plastic. The breakfast pizza was great as was everything else we tried. Sites are mostly HUGE with room for the biggest of rigs and an additional trailer or boat and two more vehicles! We will camp here again if hiking the mountain or visiting the area. Would have ranked higher if the sites were level. We camped at Lone Fir Resort in a Motorhome.
Do not go on the 4th of July, if you do not want to hear the fireworks, nearly in your camp site. Raised hell with my pet. Red necks driving their off road vehicles from the camp site to the restaurant, about three hundred feet. Owners are very nice. Bathrooms are one stall; need to be over hauled. We camped at Lone Fir Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Under new owner-manager. This was our second stay, first was in 2009. We really like this campground. Has restaurant, pool, laundry, facilities for big gatherings, small motel and cabins in addition to 38 RV sites. New owners very helpful. Park amenities are older but kept up. Restrooms are supposed to be remodeled in the near future (they need it). We got site up a small road at the back end of the park, nice and quiet which we appreciated. Nice shade as well. Some of the sites in the main campground area do not have shade trees. Wi-Fi only available in office, restaurant and club house but worked great. There are many lakes nearby as well as Gifford Pinchot National Forest to explore. We will stay here again. We camped at Lone Fir Resort in a Travel Trailer.
