Stayed 3 days while visiting the area. The park was very clean and well maintained. The host were friendly and helpful. We had a wide and level site for our 40 ft. motorhome. Good power, cable TV and Wi-Fi. We would stay here again when in the area. Thanks for a lovely stay and we enjoyed the cookies. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate shown is Passport America. This park has wonderful staff, cheap propane, well maintained gravel roads, relatively smaller sites, good TV channels on cable (but nothing OTA roof top antenna), well maintained flowers beds and baskets, clean washrooms, a large mowed field where you can walk your dog (although not part of the park), an area with horseshoe pits where you can also walk your dog, quiet nights (with some noise from the highway, and a special touch of free home made cookies when you register. There is a wonderful park with walking paths going south on 7th from Main Street in town. The Wi-Fi was spotty and slow, but apparently it will be upgraded in the next two weeks from the date of this review. We would stay here again. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate listed is Passport America. At first they said "No PA discount on pull-throughs", which seemed strange until I realized they're set up back-to-back, so if you make it a pull-through you are effectively using two sites. Then she said take the back-in but you can pull right through because the site in back is vacant. Just move your car. Nice folks. A simple, straightforward place. Sites are level gravel, utility connections in good shape. Staff is super friendly and on top of things. Their propane price is good. The town is real nice. We stayed two nights just checking the place out. I'll stay there again. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nothing fancy about this park but the staff is the best. Free cookies when checking in and the manager is super friendly. The grounds are clean and well maintained. We have stayed there before and will stay again. The rate is a Passport America rate. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.

It was a Sunday afternoon and we had broken down about 30 miles away. I did some quick repairs to our broken trailer axle & got us back on the road & limped in to the park. It's conveniently located off the highway without being exposed to constant highway noise. What can you say about a place when you're shown such kindness and understanding? It's pretty hard to be objective.! The manager handed us fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, calmed us down & told me to do whatever I needed to do to get us back on the road. Even though it was summer there was no problem using our Passport America discount (unlike many other parks). She helped me find a repair shop, too. It's a pretty basic park with good clean facilities and hookups. They clearly work hard to make sure the place is well maintained. They seemed to have the capability to accommodate anyone from tent campers to large motor homes. It's also within striking distance of a lot of tourist destinations in Washington State, whether on the coast or in the mountains. A great place to stay! Hope we come through that way again! We camped at Elma RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had to rent 2 sites to get a pull thru as they are organized for back to back hookups. That said, the rate quoted is for the 2 sites we needed. It is a nice walk into the quiet little city with a population of about 3,000. I would recommend it for an overnight stop. The back section is all permanent or long stay residents and is quite rundown. While we did not use it, the laundry room was immaculately clean. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is average of Good Sam and firefighter discounts over an 11 day stay. Everything said by other reviewers is right on. Sites can be a bit tight for big rigs with 4 slides (like ours). We were lucky there was no one in the sites across from us as we were able to pull through those to get to the exit. Cookies and managers were quite nice and the book exchange provided lots of options. We will stay again. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.

I would normally rate this campground as a 7, but the friendly and accommodating management and the neatness and high level of upkeep and maintenance deserves and upgrade to 8. Upon arrival you are given delicious home-made cookies; if you need a box in order to get cable (newer RV's will not require one, I am told) someone comes and helps you connect it; you are allowed to wash your rig. There is always someone working around during the day --scrubbing and cleaning the public area, watering the flowers and trees, etc. Everyone, staff and customers are very friendly. Yes, there are some older units, they are in a separate area of the park and those folks are very friendly, always say hello and give you a wave when they drive by. As mentioned below --- if the park is full, the RV's are parked tail to tail. The separation from side to side is about what is seen at most parks. When we were there, the park was not crowded so there was ample room around the RV's. We would stay here again if we are in the area and visiting folks in Olympia. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.

I have been to RV parks that have an age restriction on RV's. This park is NOT one of those parks. Some of the RV's were so old I was surprised they were even functional! But I wouldn't let that defer you from staying here. Good place to overnight on your way via US 12. Park is clean and beautifully landscaped. I got some great cookies on check in. The RV spaces are arranged in this really weird way. Every other spot is a LONG pull-through, good for big rigs. In between, the other slots are back to back "back in" spaces. Laundry room and bathrooms were gleaming! Laundry was cheap, $1.75 to wash, $1 to dry. At these prices, I would FIND a reason to do laundry. Regarding bathrooms, you have to pay for showers, 25 cents for 3 minutes. Also, warning for tall people regarding the toilets. I'm only 5' 4" and I thought the toilets were really low to the ground. They sell propane at this park. Staff is friendly. Wi-Fi worked great! Also, Verizon phones and JetPack hotspot worked great. The only bad thing is that this park became a "cable hostage" to a certain cable company who decided you have to have a converter box to connect to cable. Who wants to drive 300 miles, and have to be a techno-geek to connect to cable? I wasn't charged a deposit for the box, but I get the impression it's management's discretion as to whether or not they decide to charge a deposit. Price reflects a 10% discount, but I don't know if it's Good Sam or AAA as I had both, and I got a 10% discount without being told which it was. I was going to give this park a 5 because of all the old RV's here, but since the previous person gave it an 8, I decided, what the heck, the landscaping is beautiful and park is clean, OK, an 8. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.

I disagree with the previous reviewer about the permanent residents. No it's not perfectly organized but in general it just looked like people living life. New trees have been planted all along the sites which will continue to make it look nicer. I would definitely NOT let worries about the residents keep you away! We had site B2 in the front; our 36' 5th wheel was able to enter & exit easily. Maybe some of the sites would be difficult for rigs larger then ours, I don't know. Wi-Fi was super. Cable didn't seem to have all the channels they listed but reception was good. Too bad no ESPN! Some road noise at night but not too bad. And yes, the office staff (and the cookies!) are wonderful. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As they say, all things are relative : true in the case of this park. Compared to others in the general area, Elma RV Park does indeed rank above average. However, in the broader scope of comparisons, I would rank it well below average. Delicious chocolate chip cookie providing friendly management aside, the park itself is downgraded by very narrow sites which are divided by a two foot strip of dead grass outlined with railroad ties. The more negative feature, however, is the significant number very trashy trailers settled in for the long term on the eastern half of the park. Compared to fine parks, this one is on the dumpy side. We utilized our Passport membership so the price was right. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a 40' motorhome with 4 slides and a tow vehicle. We stayed in site D5. A little hard to get into. Wide enough for all slides. Picnic table, gravel and level. The Passport rate was just right. Previous review right on. We would stay here again. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.

A small park, but very homey. Several long term residents, but they are further down the park, so you are in an area with travelers, like us. The grounds are kept up nicely, book exchange and good laundry facilities. The manager is a neat lady and gives you oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies upon sign in. She is nice to work with and very friendly. Gravel sites, not real big, but spacious enough to have slides out comfortably. Picnic tables at each site. FREE super good Wi-Fi, and cable TV, all included in the price. We stayed here on a Passport America rate. Would definitely stay here again. We stayed here for a week (twice).

Price is for 6 nights with the 7th free so actually was $27 a night. (Website said $31?) The internet was very good. the reason I gave this an 8 is because the sites were kind of close together and there is hardly any room to park your car or truck. We camped at Elma RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stay here several times a year in our motorhome and have for the past few years. The owner is wonderful and she has really put a lot of money into sprucing up the park and improving the grounds. If you visit in the spring they have the most beautiful flowers and tulips too! The managers are so very nice. They greet you with cookies (and treats for your pets, with your permission of course) when you check in, and always bend over backwards to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The clubhouse is always so clean and inviting. They often have pot luck gatherings for folks in the park, as well as other goodies and gatherings for their guests during various times of the year. Their restrooms are very clean and well stocked. They do charge a small fee of .25 cent for a 3 minute shower, but this is nothing compared to other places we’ve visited. Some parks charge as much as $4.50 for a 5 to 7 minute shower, so this small fee to help offset their rising water costs and wonderful improvements they've done is extremely reasonable. They also have a great laundry facility with both front loading and top loading large capacity washers and dryers, I believe we pay $1.75 to wash and $1.00 to dry for almost an hour of drying time. These are reasonable rates and your towels and jeans get dried in the first round! We travel a great deal and we’ve paid up to $3.00 to wash and $2.50 to dry for only a 30 to 45 minute dry cycle and you usually have to feed more coins into the dryer to dry your towels and jeans, so kudos for their dryers. This park also has propane available and has the cheapest prices in the area. They offer cable (with more channels than you could ever watch) and Internet. The Internet is fast, but like other RV parks when more people are online, like weekends and evenings, it slows down a bit, but it’s still fast (and this is something beyond their control really). Their sites are pretty level on both the back-in and pull-through sites, and very spacious. They can accommodate just about any size rig. This is a great park for caravans, families or any RVing group. They also allow tent camping, which is becoming scarce and hard to find in some areas. I also love their location. Easy on/off to the highway, not too far away from the ocean and other scenic drives and there is a great paved walking/biking path that goes around a nice lake just up the road. I would highly recommend this RV park to anyone, the only thing missing is a hot tub (wink-wink). We camped at Elma RV Park in a Motorhome.
