We stayed at Rocky Point Campground which is on Alder Lake. This campground is listed under Alder Lake Campground at the Washington State reservation site. It's a very small, 25 site campground on the south end of Alder Lake. I think we were at one of the best sites in the park as we had a nice view of the lake. One side of our site was the well house and the on the other side the camp site was so far away we could barely see it. This park is right next a busy highway so during the day it's quite noisy. Be sure to get a site away from the road. A chat with the host informed us that the only available phone or internet connections are available through Verizon. We were fortunate enough to have Verizon equipment so our services were good. While we were there, the park was only half full. The lake was also way down. You could swim in it, but there no beach as such. The boat launch wasn't usable. You could get a kayak or rubber raft off of the boat launch, but that's about it. The park has no sewer or dump station so you have to drive 4 miles to the main campground to dump. We camped at Alder Lake Park in a Motorhome.

This is a park operated by Tacoma Power, so it's not exactly like the Washington State Parks. Price does not include $8 "reservation fee" extracted for the Online Reservation service. (But the $8 can cover multiple reservations made at the same time.) Our site was asphalt paved and was an easy back-in. While there was a downhill portion at the entry, the pad leveled out nicely once we where parked conveniently positioned for the utilities connections. We selected a site that was a short walk from the clean restroom/shower. Shower required 50 cents (in quarters) for 4 minutes. Additional 2 minutes for each additional quarter, if you put them in before the timer stops. The campsite was pleasant, and we had reasonable shade (on a hot day). (Some sites are less shady.) The park is adjacent to a reservoir that allows power boats. Our weekday, early season visit was very quiet -- but it is pretty clear that at peak times boat motor noise could be considerable. Site was shorter (length is listed in online descriptions) but quite reasonable for my Sprinter Class B (Van-type) RV. (Note: I do not tow a vehicle.) I would stay here again. We camped at Alder Lake Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest RV Parks near Mt. Rainier National Park. It's about a 25 minute drive to the National Park Gate.

This is a beautiful lake view park. It was packed over the weekend and almost empty during the week. Close to Mt Rainier national park. It is real close to the backside of Mt St. Helens national park. This park is mostly for smaller rigs and tents. Only a few sites will fit a 40'. We have a 42' and we barely fit into our site. The only sites with sewer that fit a bigger rig are in the group area. We asked if we could move there when it was completely empty. No was the answer. Against the rules. The nicer spaces by far are in the group area. The second nicest spots are for small RVs. Very nice if you have kids and a smaller rig. Lots of very nice playground equipment. We were the only larger RV in the park not in the group area. Showers very scarce if you don't bring your own. 30 amp only in the area that will fit bigger rigs. We camped at Alder Lake Park in a Motorhome.

This is a campground run by Tacoma Power in Alder, WA, about 15 miles from Mt. Rainer National Park. It is a beautiful camp with clean restrooms, but only 1 shower. And the shower cost $0.50/minute for hot water. But with a senior discount, the rate was only $26. We camped at Alder Lake Park in a Motorhome.

What a beautiful place. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The park was wonderful and so were the people working and staying there. Everything was spotless. We loved seeing the beautiful deer walking around the park. We can't wait to go back next year! We camped at Alder Lake Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for a week in June 2009. Excellent Campground. You must handpick tour site as they are all different in amenities and size. The area is kind of remote so bring your groceries if you plan to stay awhile. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Tacoma Power Company does a nice job of managing their parks. We camped at Alder Lake Park in a Motorhome.

The Campground Has Gone Poorly In Ways Of Apearence. The Campground Has Overgrown Trees And Is Not Being Taken Care Of. Sites Are Not Level. Restrooms In The Old Sections Are Pittiful. Showers Are Falling Apart. We Know The Campground Host And They Say That It Is Going Down-Hill Fast. They Have Put In Playgrounds Which Was Needed. If You Have Never Been Here Before You Should Come, It Is An Okay Park, Just Not A Prestine Park. Would Give Park A 7. We camped at Alder Lake Park in a Motorhome.
