Really nice for a state park. Big sites and full hookups. No wifi, cable or, OTA channels. Very quiet campground, but as others have said bring the bug spray. Even though they have a program to control the insects you are right by a lake and we had plenty of bites from the bugs.

About 10 miles from the nearest town so stock up before you get here.

We would stay again but would look for a site further from the lake. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has almost no shade trees and lots of mosquito's. When you park your camper be sure to hang to the passenger side to avoid the stones on the driver side. These stones make it difficult to get around your camper to hookup your utilities. With the lake right there it offers great boating for everybody. I was surprised to find most of the people camping not very friendly. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

Bring bug spray if camped near the water or large grassy areas. Otherwise we did not encounter mosqito issues in or near our site. There is a control program in place.

Steamboat Rock is a really beautiful park. We enjoyed having wild turkeys crossing through our campsite. We also enjoyed the beach/swimming and the kids' play area. All the utilities are fine, and we did have a weak Verizon cell signal. Grand Coulee dam is very close by. Our neighbors were all quiet and the staff was friendly and attentive.

If you want to be "out" of mainstream, this is a wonderful park. Boat launch, lake, roped off swimming areas, on-site snack bar and hiking trails, (some rather challenging). This is an excellent choice. Sites are fairly typical for a state park but very adequate, with full services available, mostly pull through. Fishing can be tremendous but don't tell anyone. Bring bug spray. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

This is by far our favorite spot for a weekend getaway. We normally camp here two or three times a summer between our longer trips. Very spacious sites with lots of room for the kids or

pets and lots of green grass. This campground is always clean and well taken care of with nice access to Banks Lake and beautiful views! We love this campground! We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful, and very popular, state park campground in the middle of Banks Lake a short drive south of the Grand Coulee Dam area. It's well laid out with spacious sites and very clean. Didn't use the restrooms so can't comment. The RV sites come in three price levels but I never did see one that wasn't mid-priced at $40/night. I felt that was a bit overpriced for the area, but the access to the lake is probably what most people are willing to pay for. We were there on a Thursday night in July and there were only about 5 or 6 sites open and none that could be rented for more than one night, so I strongly suggest you make reservations there in the summer. Great place for boaters and if you have one of the spots right near the water, most of the people seemed to be able to just tie their boats up right along the shore near their sites. As an overnight site, I would look for something cheaper, but if I were a boater looking for a vacation site I would stay again. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Truck Camper.

This park has new facilities and is in a beautiful setting. Sitting on the shore of Banks Lake there is a bike path connecting the different sections of the campground. The sites are large with good utilities but no Wi-Fi or cable. We had AT&T cell access. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

State campground is very well maintained and easy to navigate. Shaded sites are around the periphery mostly and the sun can be punishing in July. Banks Lake is spectacular. The grandeur of Steamboat Rock itself is undeniable. The whole valley is incredible. Worth travelling this route. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A great state park! The Washington State taxpayers spent their money well here. This park is laid out very nice and the new section is awesome. Take the time to climb to the top of Steamboat Rock while you are there. It takes about an hour to get to the top and the trail is very steep in a couple of places but the effort is rewarded with incredible views once you reach the top. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great state park. Large level sites with lots of space between rigs. Every night a herd of 12 deer came down and grazed on the grass. We had a site with a view of the lake. Will come back. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

Our first visit to the Banks Lake area of WA. So beautiful and this park did not disappoint. Well placed hook ups, level paved sites with a view. Gorgeous!! It was a one night stay...but we are already making plans to go back!! We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful campground! Lots of room between sites. It's a lot of fun to be able to walk right down to the lake. The water is warm in the summertime and the kids loved it. Well maintained except for one major problem. The mosquitoes there are Horrible. I don't now if the state doesn't allow them to use chemicals for the mosquitoes, or not, but it is out of control. You can't even take a nice walk or sit out in the evening because the bugs are so bad. I went out to dump my black water one evening and when I came back in I had at least 20 new bites on me, no exaggeration. I would give this park a 10 if it were not for the mosquitoes.

We are a 38 ft 5th wheel and we normally stay out of state parks because of very tight maneuvering, but not here! Sites were large and paved. Deer and wild turkey everywhere. Good restrooms and showers. Only problem was lots and lots of bugs.Used our Deep Woods Off! Would stay here again. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The only reason I didn't give this a 10 was because of the mosquitos and other little bugs. If you like a desert lakes you will love this one. The roads are well paved, and it is far enough away from HWY 155 that it is nice and quiet. The hosts are wonderful, informative, and friendly. We came here to take in the unusual geological sites in the area - The Grand Coulee, Steamboat Rock itself, and Dry Falls, etc. Well worth the trip. We saw people fishing and heard the fishing can be quite good. The play area looked like it would be great for kids, although it was off season and during the week so we saw no kids. A group did come in later in the week, and at the group site there were teens and pre-teens having lots of fun, but they were quiet during quiet hours. We don't like heat, so we wouldn't stay here in the summer, and we heard the bugs are worse in the summer although they do control the mosquitos as much as they can. The sites are well laid out, and they are adding more plus some cabins. We would stay here again if passing through, but since we saw what we came to see, we would probably not come back. But we highly recommend it for those who like a desert lake environment. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Travel Trailer.
