29 Parks near Fort Lewis Army Post, Washington
Jul 2016 - $45.00
Large site and with fifth wheel parked, it made a very private area with rig parked between site and road. Quiet, full hookup but very popular area. Reservations suggested. I made mine in March for July and 6 days was the longest "open" time. - Edd505

We arrived at 3:30 in the afternoon. Wait at gate 12 minutes. Gate attendant was very professional and friendly. Drive through the park was very tight with trees leaning over the roadway. We drive a 40 ft DP. The site we were in was the only site that our rig would fit in, it was a drive through, but we had to drive in and back out.
Campsites are medium distance apart and paved. Hookups were well placed. One note - there were no trash cans, just recycle.
Beach access is very nice with a very large parking lot. The beach is typical salt water with a very low slope.
We will not be returning to camp. - Half_Timer

Difficult to drive through park, winding, low branches and pull-thru unlevel, hard to level out. Tight parking. Only one campground open, Self Registration, ranger on site part time. Watch speed limit. - billandmemakes3

Pretty RV park (not a resort) nestled under well-trimmed evergreen trees. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. It is on a hillside so sites are terraced and roads are steep in a couple of places. Office staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was a long, fairly level pull-through with 50 amp. The back-in sites were of various sizes. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were modern and clean. WiFi worked some of the time. The park is less than a mile from downtown Gig Harbor and close to a bike trail.
Larger RVs should use the Burnham Drive exit when arriving from the east.
We enjoyed our stay here and would gladly come back again. - JoyceM

This campground is in a beautiful setting, large mature trees, hilly terrain with sites terraced into the hills. Many of the sites are hard to get into, we were lucky and our pull through was easy, but was right on top of our neighbor, 4 feet between slides. Road and sites are gravel and not real level. Wi-Fi was weak and the cable had fair reception. - Traveler II
Sep 2015 - $58.00
We called to make reservations nearly a month ahead of time. We were told we couldn't reserve a specific site, but we would get a site meeting our requirements. When we arrived we were told that no pull-through sites were available. When we mentioned that several sites were empty, she said they were reserved. Total disconnect here--we were told we couldn't reserve and yet...
We finally gave up arguing and backed into the site they gave us. Too many trees for satellite, WiFi was very slow, cable was good. Site had enough room to set up chairs outside and put out the awning.
Park personnel did a very good job of cleaning up after guests left, and maintaining the grounds.
We stayed for 10 days, as we had our son flying in, and we wanted to see all the sites in Seattle. We parked in Bremerton, and took the ferry across to Seattle where we picked up transportation to the sites.
Gig Harbor is not a resort by any means, but a decent park.
We found the add-ons for pets and an extra person excessive, and we will not use this park again. - The Sauntering Sampsons

Rate shown was for a weekly rate. Great park with good utilities and cell & satellite reception. Sites are unlevel front to back so bring lots of blocks. Easy access to the city and Mt. Rainier. Would stay here again if in the area. Very friendly staff. Lots of full-timers. No picnic tables and sites are all gravel. - chezhead

Parking lot sites, but with incredible view of Mt. Rainier. Close to the National Park, about 45 minutes. Lots of long term residents, but friendly. Highlights are the lovely mowed walking paths through the 10 acre woods in the back of the site, not to mention the delicious blackberries, which we were encouraged to pick. We would stay there again...but probably on a long term basis. - Tonita

They have paved entrance roads. The left turn off the highway at the top of the hill is dangerous and need to be careful. The view of Mt. Rainier is great. The staff is friendly and with permission you can wash your rig. This rate is for a week stay. The sites are level and all are back-ins and some of them are tight. The sewer is located at the rear of the site so you may need an extension. This is the second time we stayed here and would stay again. - Al and Anne-Marie

I had to get some advice from the hosts regarding the "PB" code at my site (sites are priced differently, depending upon popularity and other factors). Campground is in a pretty area, surrounded by forest. - hikinghack
Sep 2014 - $44.00
Rate includes on-line reservation fee. There are plenty of big trees making the access road is a little tight for big rigs, but it is passable with care. Spaces 203 through 211 are under big trees making satellite reception difficult. Spaces 212 through 238 are mostly in a clear open area. Spaces are gravel. Spaces closer together than we have experienced in state parks in other states. AT&T signal adequate for voice calls. The park is served by two cell sites – one LTE and the other 4G. If you can link up to the LTE site, data works great. - Tetrode

Price reflects limited income senior pass. An old CCC park but still nice. As the weather was gloomy and cold, I chose to stay in the hookup area, which is like a parking lot, with paved, level sites with water and electric but no privacy. There is grass between the sites and picnic tables. The woodsy sites were more attractive-looking but perhaps not very level. Great trail system affording a nice, long, but easy hike. Didn't use the restrooms. Would return but would choose to stay in the no-hookup area with more seclusion and scenery. - mockturtle

We have stayed a couple times a year for the past 3-4 years. We like the woodsy feel to the park. It is close to the freeway but you really don't hear it. Convenient to Olympia and handy for a night to two. Years ago we stayed in the full hookup area and found it to be too close to fellow campers. We now choose partial hookup sites. Store is well stocked, workers are friendly. I'd give a higher rating if they would reopen the bathroom/shower facility in the back half. A couple of portable toilets serve the area in the summer. A nice facility is attached to the store, but its quite a distance away from the tent and partial hookup sites. - flaymingyon

This campground has a lot of potential, unfortunately there are too many people just living in the park. These renters have their things stacked up, which detracts from other sites. The spaces are so close together your slide out will actually touch your neighbor. While the sites are unpaved and level, they are not big rig friendly. There is a pool, but no TV reception. The Wi-Fi does not work as advertised. We stayed in a 39' RV and will not be back. - lovepu1987

Not a good park for RV's. Had to share patio. Sites are too crowded. Not a good experience for us anfd glad we only stayed 2 nights. Probably a good park for tent camping in the back of the park. Very pretty grounds. - Traveler 09
Nov 2015 - $25.00
Had a relative in a nearby hospital, making this location very convient. As stated before, ground is soft when rains hit, but the camp host showed me a good spot. Nothing special about the park, but well suited for area travels. Weather turned very cold while there, causing water problems, but worked though it. Site can get very close but there were about 10 rvs on site, so plenty of room. - sfretts

If you're going to see stuff or do something in Tacoma this is a great location. As mentioned, it's just a big grassy parking lot with full hookups. You can save $5/night by signing up and paying in the Fair office. I can't say that it's convenient for running into Seattle. The fact of the matter is the traffic into Seattle is horrible. You can pretty much count on 1.5 + hrs to drive 30 or 40 miles unless you get very lucky. Right now it's a combination of traffic volume, construction, weather, and accidents. We went into the Seattle from here 3 times and each time it was at least 1.5 hrs each way. That being said I'm not sure there's any place else to stay around the area that would be any better. When we stayed here there were only about a dozen sites filled so we had plenty of space. When it's full you'd pretty much be right on top of one another. Verizon MiFi worked great. We'd stay here again. - pumper9x9

RV park is grassy field, reasonable price for FHUs in the Seattle area. No amenities, it's a fairground parking experience.
Hosts were nice, can only reserve pay one week at a time, discounted rate to pay through the office during business hours vs. once you arrive. Location convenience is the only reason we stayed here. - DRFink

Nice little park with very friendly staff. Our first outing for the year, I was still on crutches from a knee surgery. They picked me up with the golf cart and took me down to the dock so I could fish with my son. It is small and the kids couldn't ride their bikes, but there are a few activities for the kids. We will go back when we are looking to do some fishing, maybe an all guys weekend with my boys. - brian4bes

The resort is very old with old hookups. The water hookup is buried in the ground, the power and cable tower are old and falling down. The bathrooms very dirty and you had to pay for a shower. Our site was gravel and level, the firepit was a hole in the ground with rocks around the edges. They did not enforce the quiet time, parties were going on all night. Will not return. - jhb1945

This looked like an old KOA campground and at one time was probably a very nice park. It now has some permanent residents and the facilities are just OK. The pull through sites were grass and fairly level, we had poor WIFI coverage but it was much better in the Game Room at the office. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We stayed at this location for 4 nites as we visited the Seattle and Olympia area. - Jim Moyer

This is an RV park in the trees and should not be advertised as "Big Rig accessible". Our 40' motorhome could barely manage to navigate the asphalt road through the trees to a call field where we could park. We had 30 amp service only and parked on grassy gravel. We could neither use our OTA antenna or our DirecTV due to the trees around us. The gentleman on a bike who guided us to our site was bossy and rude. He was irate that we could not follow his bike route through the asphalt trail exactly, even though we were almost 13' tall and 40' long. We will never stay here again. - JanW

The good: The folks running the campground--absolutely wonderful, eager to help and please. Private, trees, can have campfires (and wood available for purchase), pool, inexpensive. Perfect for anyone wanted a real campy, rustic, no frills experience.
The bad (for us): with any rain, muddy, pine needles, messy. Sites so-so on being level, not easily accessed by motor home due to trees and narrow roads (we're 35 feet). No WiFi, no cable, zero dish access due to the trees, very unreliable electric. It's older, and needs improvements. - Desert Girl 4932

This resort is not a public rv resort all the lots are owned by individual lot owners who can rent out their spots on a longer term basis. This resort is in great condition after going thru several developers. Great pool and the lake is nice with docks and watercraft rental. Lots of playgrounds and recreation for kids. Very friendly staff . Has a national forest appeal with all paved roads. Very close to Seattle -Tacoma area. I found spots for rent on Craigslist and Rv Park store websites. Many spots have covered ports for parking under. Only negative was lots of one way roads. My rate was based on monthly. - KLH

The site for AOR members were two linked sites, I doubt that I could have gotten out if another rig pulled in. The main problem was the noise, trains ran all night, you would have sworn that they were coming through the middle of your campsite. There appear to be only 16 sites for non-owners. The loop is not made for anything much over 32' looking at the trees on some of the tight corners you could see where there had been collisions. We crossed this campground off our list. This is one lake that should remain lost. - mamestra

Membership park - they were down right rude to those using C2C, RPI, or AOR to camp. Regulated to a small area, not allowed to use most of the facilities as those are for members who BUY their spots. Railroad train is not only LOUD, but runs by every 1/2 hour. Stayed 3 days and could not take it any longer and left ahead of time. - PugetSound

First, the good...the young woman in the office was extremely helpful and pleasant. While the RV park is also a mobile home park, the two are kept separate. There is a pretty little creek (not really accessible) that runs along the back of the property.
We stayed here on the weekend of the drag races, so the place was pretty full.
Now for the rest...
We had reservations but some people didn't leave so what we reserved was not available and we had two options - parallel park our 40' 5th wheel between two carnival rigs or back into a spot that was 30 amp service. Couldn't back in all the way because of overhanging tree limbs.
The "dog walk" is a joke. It's actually a road w/ signs threatening fines if we don't pick up after our dogs. My dogs won't poop on a road. Oh, yeah, the dog walk is where they wanted to parallel park us.
There are NO refunds. Make sure you like your spot before paying by cash or check (they don't take credit cards.)
The place is not kept up. The roads are fairly narrow. The sites are adequately wide. Trees surround the park.
We would NOT stay here again. - User3146

Do to the past reviews, we were a little reluctant to stay at this park. We found the office person very friendly and helpful. Our site was 75' x 20. Very adequate. Very nice and friendly park. If I were you I would ignore the past reviews. The road in is blacktop, and the parking sites and on Gravel, so what. We stayed over the 4th of July and were near an Indian Reservations. The fireworks sounded like dynamite. My two little dogs were shaking the whole week we were there. Not the parks fault. We would definitely stay their again, but not over the 4 th of July. - Journey39k

Nothing as advertised. Hookups were at the back of the site so we had to drive to get a longer TV cable and extension for sewer. Fortunately we had an extra water line. TV cable was useless as the cable in my site did not work except for an Xfinity advertisement. We did have one of the few picnic tables but it was so old and dirty I would not use it. WiFi worked off and on. We decided to swim since we had nothing to do but office closed early so we couldn't get the key. Discovered after reading the sign on the pool gate that the pool would be open at the discretion of the office. The pool had a cover over it when we drove in so it was not being used anyway. Would get my money back and move since I am here for three nights but there is a "no refund policy." Obviously, I would never stay here again. - Missdijean
