28 Parks near Graham, Washington
Jun 2016 - $35.00
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. - Pete_by_the_river

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. - RFCN2

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. - LTV camper

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

The only plus to this state park is the location close to Seattle. Beware - it is difficult for a big rig. We have a 38 ft 5th wheel and the road into the park was very windy, lots of tall trees, I would advise people to not try to navigate this in the dark or at dusk when towing. Park really needs to trim some trees if they want to make this big rig friendly. Our site was B49, right next to the ampitheather. Supposedly a pull-through site, but no way could we make the turn around the tree in the curved part of the site. We ended up backing in from the other side of our site. Verizon coverage was awful in this park, Sprint and AT&T was okay, but only with boosters, no coverage without boosting equipment. Park is a bit run down due to lack of funding. Not sure we'll ever stay here again even though we have friends to visit within 5 miles of this location. Way too expensive for the hassle. Day use fees are collected at this park and you can end up with a very long back up to get into the park. They do not have a separate lane in the entry area for those that are already checked in and paid. Waited in line 20 minutes one time, just to get into the park. - DRFink

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

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

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

GREAT place to Explore Mt Rainier NP. Concrete Pad with Lots pf grass. Water and Elect only. NO DUMP.NO WI-FI, would have marked higher.Very Friendly Camp Hosts that know the AREA well. Nice grass area for your dog exercise. Back in sites only, but large enough for 40 ft 5th wheel. Enumclaw Golf Course(18 Hole) about 1/2 mile away. Lots of restaurants and Grocery stores. - silverado

Stayed 5 nights - nice campground with large sites. Great camp hosts. There are showers and restrooms in the fairgrounds they could use a cleaning, but will work. Utilities were very good, but no sewer. We have used this campground on our visits to see family in the area. - rwjsim2003

We used this CG as a stop over for seeing family campground was nice basically a large parking lot but in good shape. We meet with another couple here also and I liked the setup they have where you face door to door very nice. Only down fall was that they were having kids football league all day Saturday and Sunday and the kids were running a muck and very loud at 7am and there was no campground host on the days we stayed. If you stay here I suggest you stay in the far back spaces and you would not be bothered by the Noise of the Football field I understand it was only two weekends a year just our luck we picked that weekend. - rwjsim2003

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

Stayed for most of the summer. Lovely little quiet park, in the back of a subdivision, up a very steep hill in a rural location near Orting. Only back ins available. Long term stays also required to pay a $10.00 fee to the Buttes homeowners association and for electricity usage. Poor cell service for AT&T. NO wifi included. They say they have it but it doesn't work. Cable is NOT included, but the hook up available if you call and pay for it. Xfinity Wifi is an available option using your modem, pay by the week or month. Nothing fancy, but lovely location and very small. 14 spaces. Everyone is very friendly. Lovely campground hostess. Deer abound and are not fearful of people. Basically a space on asphalt and gravel under the trees, with hookups. They do have a laundry room with one washer and dryer. Haven't used it. - travlinrose

This is a very nice out of the way RV Park just south of Orting in the Buttes Housing Developement Gated Community. Very clean and quiet and sits on a hill with wild life as deer, chipmunks, numerous birds. - Big Dave

Pros - great store, manager very helpful, close to Mt Rainier and Seattle, sites are fairly level and large, parts of the park are very nice, great cable TV Cons - Management requires you to sign a 5 page contract, Owner operates tractor throughout the park daily, owner has many disagreements with tenants, dusty, many permanent trailers that are a little messy, internet costs extra, is slow, and is by a third party, some questionable people in the park at night, they require that you have your doggie bag out and visible when walking your pet, no dog area I enjoyed my stay here but felt that it would be easy to get in an argument with the manager who, in my opinion means well but is quick to anger. - Donco

Friendly and helpful staff. Gravel streets & sites. All back-ins. Very easy parking from wide streets; no posts, rocks, fences, etc. Sites vary in size; ours was 20 feet wide. No picnic tables or fire rings. Well maintained. Water pressure 60#. On grounds store sells sandwiches in addition to usual RV Park store supplies. Many permanent residents; they are friendly and generally have attractive, well kept sites. Their children and pets are well behaved. Many tree & shrub plantings, no grass, no mowers, no leaf blowers – hooray. The wooded creek toward the back of the park has a sand bag levee. Choose higher ground in high water conditions. Good Verizon signal. Cable TV good except for very poor reception on ABC & NBC. We felt peaceful in the pleasant surroundings and will come here again. Environmentally unconscious; no recycling. - meanderingman

I spent a week and a half here and enjoyed it. The owner and people working at the park were friendly and helpful. I think this is the best park in the south sound area and will stay there whenever I visit the area. They have a large gravel pull through section with full hookups, its gently sloped back to front and fairly level but un-landscaped, no picnic tables. The store is pretty well supplied. Spots along the creek are in the long term section. - User1806

The word "resort" is not what I would call it. We were packed in like sardines in the few spots that the permanent residents weren't in. The cable had to have a box from the office to work and the 30 amp electricity went in and out frequently. The dock at the lake with the chairs and swings was refreshing and peaceful. The park was quiet at night, but other than the lake and the peacefulness, I would not stay here again. - Marilynintexas

We had our doubts about staying due to the vast majority of sites being occupied by seasonals. There are only a few sites for transients but they are together, separated from the seasonals. As a whole the park is neat & tidy. Most go there for the fishing. The park has its own dock & boats to rent. Transient sites are very narrow. They are FHU. Not all have picnic tables. All have a fire contraption. The Wi-Fi, no extra charge, works well. Cable is very basic but at no extra charge either. Staff are friendly however the fellow who served us in the office is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. - Veebyes

Kids loved the fishing. But we hated the mosquitoes. Very cramped sites, Wi-Fi came and went all the time. The staff was very helpful. 30amp power breakers would drop off if we used A/C. - sjolley
