Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $35.00
This is a nice little campground that would be a good jumping-off place for day trips into Mt. Rainier National Park. There is a little creek to cool off in, and a big field for frisbee-throwing. A herd of elk will visit from time to time.
We liked this place because it is only 45 miles from our home and is yet far enough out to be quiet and peaceful. There's a little noise from route 7 that runs nearby, but it wasn't annoying.
It's worth mentioning that there are a lot of really nice tent sites in this campground. That's not always the case with privately-owned operations. This would be a very pleasant place to camp in a tent. There are nice restrooms and showers, and even an outdoor dishwashing sink.
A lot of thoughtful touches have gone into making this a great campground.
The owners are about the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. They were gracious hosts, and came by to make sure that everything was OK.
The only bad news about Eastcreek is that it is for sale. The owners would like someone to take over and let them have a "real" retirement. We camped at Eastcreek Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:
Go visit Mt. Rainier National Park while you are camped here.
Although a bit out of town, a beautiful spot. Absolutely no cell service or Wi-Fi in park, but when you get out to main road you will pick it up quickly. Never been to a park (especially paying $35) that you will be charged an additional $10 to dump!! We choose not to dump as we had only stayed two nights and it would be a couple more days before we would be hooked up at a park again. Owner are very pleasant and informed us that our dogs were over the size (max 40 lbs). (We have an airedale and labradoodle and they were an "allowed breed" but we would be allowed since the park was very empty mid week.) Nice spot on the creek except it's too bad they dumped slash over the bank to fall into the river- an eyesore and not the best way to get rid of slash. First night was very quiet and peaceful, second day a family of seven camped next to us and kids were all over the place...and up until 10 playing...love kids...but wanted to go to sleep. A very well planned park with lots of trees between sites. Since as many trees as possible have been left, it's very shady there. Perfect for our dogs who had to stay in RV when we went to Mt. Rainier. It's for sale. We camped at Eastcreek Campground in a Motorhome.
Nice park in woods, only one other camper during our stay. Great site, by the creek - pull through. Wi-Fi did not work. No cell coverage. Owners were very friendly. Visited Mount Rainier Park from there. We camped at Eastcreek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
