Old park, but new utilities, fencing etc. Sites on the "beach side" very narrow, but long enough. Mostly pull-thru's. Some large enough for big rigs. Didn't use but peeked into bathroom/shower & old but acceptably clean. $5 site & $100 view of the Hood Canal. Can pick your own oysters from the beach for a fee. Sites in the woods across the street had nice shade, but didn't check them out closely. We would certainly stay here again if the occasion arose. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We visited as part of camping group. The owners were very pleasant, easy to work with, and tried their best to make our stay as nice as possible. It is true there are some full time residents as there is at all the RV parks up and down Hood's Canal. None of the full time residents were of objection to our group and all was quiet and calm during our whole 3 day stay. Things mentioned in all comments made on other websites just were not seen by us. The owners purchased this business 2 yrs ago sight unseen and have spent thousands to put in an all new up to code electric/sewer/water hookups to upgrade since then. The little coffee shop has never reopened yet though. We found all to be well kept even though there was still some work being done. We would go there again. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an old RV park. I read that there were new owners as of 2013. The office staff was eager to please. The grounds were not so pleasing. There are great views on the water side of the park, but the sites are very close. We pulled our awning in when our next-door neighbor arrived. We were here with a group, otherwise I wouldn't like to be so close to my neighbors. The club house was adequate. No a/c, old metal folding chairs, etc. Sites on the other side are larger and shaded. Some are pull-thrus on grass. Some are big, some small. Hard to predict what you'll get. Water side had new electric, sewer and water connections. Rental house was shabbier than 2 years ago per members of our group. The best thing about this place is how close to the water you can be if you choose, and how pleasant the staff was. Worse stuff was age and repair of structural things. You can tell that this used to be a really nice facility. Now--not so much. I hope the new owners can fix it up and make it worth $45/nite. They've got an uphill journey but I can see potential here. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Owner does not care for this park. No care, grass needed mowed, electric hook ups old, rusted, the first site we tried, electric was hot neutral reversed so we moved sites, dog crap every where. No up keep, no mgr on site for check in, just park where you want. Full timers are seedy, drinkers, junk around their sites. We locked everything up to avert possible thefts. Picnic tables rotted and unsafe for use. Owner did not show any pride to prepare the grounds for our large group. We will not come back. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our Group had shown up the 15th of July small and had to wait 45 minutes for the New Asian Owner to decide to finally show up to check us in. Now it has been 10 years since our group had visited this R.V Park and the old management was still the owner then. Had we known it had changed hands and known about the sad conditions of the place we certainly would have stayed some where else. The new owner has an issue understanding the English language, he also needs to be more respectable to those that rent from him, there are no set rules to the place any longer just the ones he decides to enforce when he chooses. The camp grounds were in terrible condition, old and tired to say the least, some folks that were farther in the back were both loud and rude. Most of the trailers there were either very old Mobile Homes, or shabby older R.V's one person who has potted plants clustered around the front of his Older dingy 5th wheel in the back was extremely rude and nosy while we stayed here. The Manger did not seem to know much about the running or the rules of the place though he did drive his flat bed truck around the place all hours of both night and day, I guess he thought he was acting as the places security guard. The female staff was not much help either when it came to aiding us with our electric issues which kept tripping the meter we were set up on. So all in all this once thriving R.V Park has fallen to its knees, old tired and out dated in both the internet as well as the electric, its new owner needs to put some money into restoring it to be able to attract future renters if he expects to ever recover half of the six hundred thousand he said he purchased it for. If I were to rate this place it would fall way below standards. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Motorhome.

This once great park has really fallen on hard times. I believe the new owner (As of Oct 2013) is trying to bring the park up, but its really needing a lot of TLC. Electrical issues on the water side needs to be addressed. The boxes are OLD and rusty. Some of our members had breakers go often. Talking with another RV group it appears this new owner is trying to restore it, but He needs to invest in the grounds big time. Needs to get rid of the "Full Timers" with seedy rigs and seedier jobs (IE Ladies of the night). I will wait for a year to see if it improves but as it sits now I doubt I will recommend the park. Especially with the Price they charge .. $45 a night water side and $40 a night park side is really steep for the condition its in. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Was never so let down in a place that the Website lied about. First of all the entire place was so run down, the grounds were unbelievably shabby compared to the others we stayed at around the area. All the sites had very old electrical outlets and the Wi Fi was never reliable, we were for ever talking to a Man who referred to himself as the "Manger" that was walking around behind a Wheel Chair. He explained that the place had only just changed ownership and that there were going to be amazing changes this summer to up grade the grounds. We were upset about the two Pit bulls that were tethered to some old boat moorings they challenged our little dogs every time we walked around the landing. One day one of the dogs broke the rope it was tied to and charged one of our Members, I said something to the Man who proclaimed to be the Manger about this and he informed our group that nothing would be done about it because the Owner of the R.V Park was good friends of the people who owned the two dogs. The other side of this Camp Ground is larger than the waterside but it is in worse shape by far, how can someone who owns a R.V Park charge the rates he does when the place is so beat up and run down. Next to the Office is a very old and run down Motor Home that has a smaller R.V parked along side with a very rusted top, ( it appeared to not run ) this place stank of decay and liqueur. The one trailer next to it was not as bad but it to was clearly beat up also, is this a R.V Park or Mobile Home Park for the Homeless?. We did how ever notice one single smaller older Trailer up front that the person clearly cares enough to place a nice little wooden fence around it. This so called Rest a While R.V Park really needs to not worry so much about renting the place out until the Owner steps up and up grades it. We will not be back and will be informing many other Groups about the poor condition of the place. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were greatly disappointed by the condition of the place, first the R.V park is really not that at all it is more of a run down Mobile Home Park. It was not maintained at all we were a large group of 30 and could not believe the un-kept condition of the grounds. The water side is the only part of this tired ole R.V Camp that is partly maintained, though clean on this side the entire place needs a complete facelift. The electric is out dated, internet kept failing due to old wiring, sites are old and run down, there is really nothing to do at this place other than walking across the road at the water. There is no place to walk our Dogs with out going into another's site which is rude to those camping. The showers were smelly, dingy and never very well cared for, the laundry room had only two washers and dryers for so many sites. There was one older Motor Home and Trailer on the right side of the road next to the Business Office that had household items around their sites along with a smaller older R.V that sat there also (not running), my husband was appalled at this and talked to our other members about the way the Owner of the place allowed such trash to be here. How sad to allow a place to host such people who clearly do not care how they live to be apart of his business, clearly anyone who permits this type of person to live that way has no business running a R.V Camp. Needless to say we will not be returning and will be sure to tell others about the place. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Motorhome.

Not a place to stay, always check out the R.V reviews about this site before staying here. Though large and accommodating it is so old and out dated. We registered online at this place and when we came to get our sites the owner/manger had to be contacted by phone, very un-professional to say the least. Once here we had to wait 45 minutes for the owner to show up, then we were taken to our sites across to the water side. Was nice except for the two Pit bulls tethered outside of the Mobile home, very aggressive both towards people as well as our dogs, we complained to the Manager Ernie but nothing was done about it. He explained to our group that these people were friends of the owner so nothing would be done about the dogs, there are young children that play around here and soon a lawsuit will be laid at the owners door. As far as the condition of the other side? it was worse. The laundry does not offer enough dryers and washers, the restrooms were dirty and not kept stocked. Once in there is a Trailer and next to it a very old and abused Motor Home up front by the Office, the Alcohol and dirty clothes smell coming out of the open door was unbelievable, no one keeps the grounds up. There is no place for children to play safely, no playground offered like others provide, and the photos that are posted are the same ones that the previous owner used in 2004, not even in the same class. The owner is miss-representing this R.V PARK. All the Electric and internet is so old you never get clear signals from either, and the price is over rated for the quality of services offered, please check out this place before you place your reservations.

This park comes across as somewhat shabby. Of what appears to have been a fairly thriving diverse enterprise only the RV park was operating when we visited. We had a water side site which had a 50 amp and a 20 amp service. The 20 amp did not function. The cable and WIFI worked better than many places we have stayed. The water side sites are a little tight but paved, level and clean. We enjoyed the view. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Rest-A-While should be put to rest. It is a big time "has been" place. Website looked good with waterfront sites, fresh fish market, marina, drive-in food, private clam and oyster beach, etc. When we arrived, we found that everything except the park's sites were closed up. Even the beach was posted as not safe because of some parasite infestation. They took a $20 deposit on even a fire pit, then didn't open the office until 10 am, which is after most rigs have left, thus, leaving the $20 for them. They charged our daughter and husband $7.00 per day per kid (they have 4), so that left a poor taste right there. Our sites were very old, but were overlooking the beautiful Hood Canal, which we did enjoy. All around, though, we won't return. This place is really an old relic that is all but dead.

We are staying here for 5 nights. Our Bluebird group meets here every year. They have put in a few 50 amp hookups new this year. It's right on Hood Canal but not on the ocean. Some spots are right on the Canal. We are in site 19 with 50 amp full hookups. They also have sites across the road back in the trees. Place is pretty old, but the hookups are OK. Our group has been coming here for 8 years in the fall and we will continue to come back. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park, some sites are right on the water. Other sites located across the hwy, lots of shade. Call ahead to book sites on water as they fill up quickly. Very nice/helpful staff. Reasonable rates considering the location. Local shopping, gas and groceries within 2 miles. Stayed here last year and will come back again. We camped at Rest-a-While RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall campground was nice. Sites are pretty close to each other; no privacy. No fire pits, you have to rent them. Sites are not level, wish they would spend a few dollars to properly grade each site. Strange that they had hookups on the wrong side, had to purchase more hose to connect. Campground is very quite considering you are right on Hwy 101. Host are very nice, they even help get you into your site. Would stay there again if I could get a different site.
