12 RV Parks near Montesano, Washington
Jun 2013 - $12.00
Beautiful state park with excellent hiking trails and lush, shady sites. Not for big rigs. There were a few 30' or larger RVs but most of the parking pads [lined with logs] are narrow but the sites are roomy and quite private. Gorgeous, well kept grounds and the lake is for non-motorized watercraft only, so quiet prevails. Excellent Verizon signal. Will definitely visit again. - mockturtle

Absolutely nothing special about this place. Small gravel parking lot with RVs quite close together. Gas station, restaurant and espresso shop by the hotel. Train tracks within 150 yards. The train can come any time and blows the horn, even at 3am. It's noisy. Not a quiet park This place is a fair enough single night layover except it isn't really en route for that. It is not a destination. We didn't enjoy finding ourselves stuck here for a week. Left a day early just to get out. - Ken Camp

It's fine. Good size sites and pull through. The sewer is at the far rear of the site which is a definite issue for some. The price at $35 has gone up 10% from last year and then add 12% tax on top of that. Electric OK as is water. - PALPJL

We stayed here one night only. This is a new park and we found it because of a referral from another RV park. This park had openings, probably because it's a new park. But it seems they already have a few full-timers staying there. The park is part of a motel and you check in at the motel's front desk. Check-in was easy and the person who helped us was friendly and helpful.
The park is new, so everything is clean. The bathrooms are especially nice, modern, big shower stalls and very clean. Wifi was terrible (we never could get connected) and they had no cable. And we weren't able to get a single channel with the antennae, a first for us. But because we were there only one night, it wasn't a big issue for us. We rented a movie at the local grocery store and we were fine.
We parked in site #6, it was a pull-through right in front of the bathrooms. Unfortunately, it was also right by the railroad tracks. We only heard one train go by and it wasn't loud. But it just wasn't a pretty view at all. There were plenty of other sites where the tracks were not visible, with trees all around. Our site itself was big and roomy; no picnic tables or fire pit available that we could see.
It's right off the freeway, so it's very convenient, and it was easy to get in and out of the park.
The town is a quiet town, with quite a few restaurants to pick from. Within walking distance is a gas station, convenience store and the Fishing Hole Restaurant, which was actually very good.
Although we didn't see much of Montesano, it's a cute little town. Montesano is a fishing town and is between Olympia and Ocean Shores WA. Montesano has many outdoor activities, including camping, fishing, hunting, kayaking, boating, hiking, and bird watching.
According to the motel manager, they do plan on getting cable. But for now, my rating is due to the lack of cable and weak wi-fi. - Phil and Yo

A GEM is correct. Older reviews stated no wifi, but now there is. Very long and beautiful asphalt trail around the lake. The campground was built with handicap in mind, and they did a great job. Asphalt RV space we had (R 10) was not real level, but we used all of our blocks on the back tires of our Class C and got it up enough to function. Water and 30 amp hookup was good. The whole park is VERY QUIET and we loved it. If there had been sewer and cable, we would never leave! - Sharon and Gary

A real "GEM" Friendly Staff, Nice surroundings. Some sites have view of Lake. Lots of grass. Walking trail around lake. Close to Challis River. Fishing Docks on both lake and river. Verizon OK. No wifi or cable. Water and Elect. Will be back. - silverado

The price included a senior discount for age 55 and over. There are some very good things about this park. The view is very good with water on two sides and tree covered hills behind the water south of the campground. The sites are all asphalt and fairly level. The manager and host are friendly. It is quiet, which means that it is in the middle of nowhere. The campground is clean and well kept, although there is a lot of old equipment stacked around the host's campsite. There is a mile and a half asphalt trail that goes around the lake on the north side of the campground that is excellent for walking your pets. On the down side, the showers are coin operated and the bathrooms are closed from 9 PM to 7 AM. There is hardly any shade to speak of and there is little vegetation between sites to act as a buffer. The grass is brown. I did see some watering going on, but they waited far too long to start. In their defense, this is the Washington coast, and they should be getting rain, but they haven't had any for about two weeks. There is no cable or Wifi, but we were able to get one Fox station with our antenna and we had a strong signal with Verizon. This is not a fancy park and only has 18 sites, but at $22 per night, it is not a bad value. I wouldn't want to spend a whole summer here, but it works for a few nights while exploring the Olympic peninsula. We would stay here again. - Dale07

Very unique location. Clean facilities, roomy sites. A great get away. Patience when driving in the loop. 42ft, including tow, fit fine. The front has the larger pull through sites. Probably easiest for first timers to park at the pub, walk back to the office, and visit your site. It is not far. - Dp26

A Very Nice, spacious park in a quiet woodland setting. - Momads

Rate reflects price for a weekend visit (not including the online reservation fee). It's a small park in a slightly out-of-the-way place, but still proved very popular. The day use area has a mile or two of hiking trails, along with picnic areas. Campground was fully booked when we visited, with several tents and two or three cars parked at each site. Fortunately a state park ranger made a couple rounds in the evening, along with volunteer hosts who were very attentive. A handful of utility sites are on a loop by the entrance, but the most secluded sites are in the back of the park. Creek runs by many of the sites. However you are not allowed to set up tents on the grassy banks. Facilities were disappointing, even by state park standards. The bathhouse seems to be original to the park, and was very dirty and smelly. The coin-operated shower in the men's room doesn't drain properly, causing water to pool by the toilets and sinks. - RVNed

This campground was very busy and noisy. I'm sure during the off season it would be a great place to stay. The utility sites are very close together and dusty. We were in site #2 and had 3 trees next to us which gave us more room than some of the other sites. There are only 6 utility sites and the rest are standard. The dump station is located just outside the park going north. This is a first come first serve park and if you get here by 2pm midweek you shouldn't have a problem getting in. There are 2 restrooms and 1 shower along with a very small store which carries ice and dry goods like soap and sponges, they do not stock food. We would stay here again as an overnighter. - jannie5

Older park that is well landscaped and maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff. Roads are OK for big rigs but sites can be pretty tight. (45'+jeep). We were put in probably the best site for a big rig. I believe it was 39. Easy park to get to off the highway. Plenty of places to walk the dog. Would stay here again. - msrebel

Lots of people who look like they live/stay there a long time; FHU back in sites that are tight and not much room to park or maneuver. Electric was good and water quality good. Small clubhouse that I did not go in. No pool. Clean and well maintained; friendly staff. Large open lot to walk dogs and let them loose if you want (lots of rabbits around), but no good place to walk. - Kerch Family

First rate staff. Utilities were good. Sites were OK and the class As seemed to get in with little trouble. The wifi was on and off. The layout of the restrooms made it very difficult is more than one shower was used. The wisdom of the design is a mystery. Shower temperature was difficult to regulate unless you wanted to be scalded or frozen. This was especially bothersome at 3 minutes for a quarter. - gumper

Older park very nicely taken care of by management. Very nice lady at check-in, she allowed us to pick the best site for our needs. Sites aren't large but adequate. Water pressure was good, 50 amp power was wonderful to have. - simonsrf

Easy access from highway. Park roads paved and lots of room to navigate. Long back-in sites but width was only decent. Utilities worked well. Tried the pay Wifi for one day and it was poor so opted for Verizon hotspot which had good signal and speed. Some road noise and train whistles. - cwier

I haven't a bad thing to say about this place. You arrive, check in, and the guy takes you to your spot, and helps you park. They have everything you need, including hook-ups on both sides in case you want to have your back window with a river view. The river is right there, with several decks that have benches where you can sit and veg. There is a nice walking path along the river, maybe a quarter mile, maybe more. There is a mix of short term folks and people who seem to spend the summer here, and maybe more. Nice club house for groups, which they allowed us to use even tho we were only 3 rigs and not the 5 they ask for. Little extras like plants on the tables, and hanging baskets. It is obvious that these folks really care about this place. The sites are pretty close, tho, gravel, level, can't complain. Friendly, good enuf for me. They've got propane, ice, club house, and showers, etc. Everything you need including fair wifi. - LeeL

A lot of extended stay trailers here but, all in all a decent park which accommodated our 45' motor home. The staff was very friendly. We Enjoyed the river and small dog trail. There was a community fire ring. Very poor town but we went to the rain forest. - blumarlin

This isn't a bad park, considering that Hoquiam is about as economically depressed of an old logging / seaport town as one can find. Decent group facilities, and free firewood for a big bonfire. Nice location next to river, with a walking path that follows the river for a nice long walk. Just OK cable TV (analog, not digital); very poor WiFi service (although the park was pretty much full-up); and if you have AT&T, you'll be toggling between "No Service" and one bar. - coffeetime

We stopped here for one night on our way south on Hwy 101. All the sites are right on the river and all are back-in. Our site was almost level - had to use Lynx levelers on one side. There are no other ammenities like showers, toilets or wifi, so I didn't rate the cleanliness category. The price seems a little high considering, but didn't want to drive further south looking. We pulled in to our site as the electric box is at the entrance of the site on the left side. The pads are gravel and grass. The park info said there were pull-thru sites but I didn't see any. - Ravengirl

This is a no frills park. It is co-located with a catamaran building business just off highway 101 on the Willapa River. 30amp hookup with water worked well. No sewer but there is a dump on property for use. Internal road is good and some sites are tight but works. - mlbarry

Sites are arranged somewhat like a wagon wheel. The back of the sites are very close to each other and have a very large bush in between them. These are way overdue for trimming. The grass is at least 18" tall and appears that it simply never gets cut. At $20 this place is probably ok, but $25 puts it on the edge value wise. The hookups are all at the rear of the site, so it took a bit of time to position our motor home where we could put the slides out and still reach the sewer connection. But once setup, it was very nice. No OTA TV, the wi-fi was very fast and dependable. - Bob and Inga

I stayed 2 nights from June 3 to 5.
First of all when i checked in the clubhouse , manager was friendly (even He's speaking skill wasn't good).
We take the rv+golf pack ,so we paid 2 persons green fee for 3 persons.
(they has promotion 2+1 free eventing now days)
W.C was clean, hot water shower was good too.
We also used BBQ grill with no charges.
It wasn't much recreation stuffs ,but reasonable price with good facility.
Free wi-fi also included .
All hook-up were well maintained too.
My opinion " cozy, golf, no extra charge in facility." good~!
They has several discount promotions so before you go check the web-site "rvgolf101" also they are welcome to pets. - jack88

Very peaceful and staff is very friendly. Camp sites are very short distance from the 1st Tee Box. Pets are allowed on the course but should be leashed. Large screen TV's in two different lounges. A very quiet place at night with no traffic noise. Just a short distance from town that offers nice restruants and stores. - Dan Barrus

Nice park a short drive out of town. They obviously cater to golfers, but are quite friendly to other RVers. Sites are basically in a field adjacent to the course, with power and water hookups. Very peaceful at night, especially when only a handful of the sites are occupied. I looks like quarters would get pretty tight if every space was booked -- we saw 3 only picnic tables to share among the campers. Bathrooms were clean, with private toilet, sink and shower stall in each one. Very fast Wi-Fi as well. - RVNed
