I agree 100% with RV Bell's review. This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have EVER stayed at. Been here a week and we hate to leave. Site needed leveling but who can complain when we had full hook-ups, large beautiful site with fire pit and picnic table.

Tractor ride is just fun! Pool was filled with kids everyday. Small commercial Maytag washers$1.25 and dryers .75. Laundry room very clean as well as the restrooms. This is a family run business (they also own Olympia Campground) and the people are exceptionally nice and helpful! This is a must stay during good weather.

We stayed in a 35ft 5th wheel. Price reflects 7th night free averages. Otherwise, cost is $35 a night. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Fred Meyers, Costco and Home Depot are a couple of exits north. Mt. Rainier is doable in a day. Cabela's and Port of Olympia also to the north.

The State Capitol building tour is a must do and is free.

Love the trees and privacy. Sites are mostly level but some have big tree roots to contend with. Not really a problem. There are some sites that are in a grassy field if you prefer. Staff was friendly and cordial. Pool is clean and refreshing. Laundry room could use some upgrades.

Overall, a family friendly campground. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Motorhome.

Very secluded with a back-in site with trees all around. Staff was very friendly and the experience here was excellent. We have stayed at this campground 9 times in the past 6 years and have always been very satisfied. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Motorhome.

If you are anywhere within an hour of this park don't stay anywhere else. Rustic camp feel? Check. Paved roads? Check. Easy access but quiet? Check. Pool, animals, bike path, hiking, hay rides, camp store, book library. Check. Wifi? No, but seriously, what campsite has good wifi? If you don't love this place, sell your rig cause it does not get better. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the kids to the hands on children's museum and get cinnamon loaf bread from Wagner's Bakery.

Secluded spot and very kid friendly. We enjoyed staying here. The staff was very friendly and the area was clean with a lot to do. Wagon rides for the kids and a little animal viewing area. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lovely park nestled in the forested area in an urban area. Sites were well spaced so you weren't on top of your neighbor, but tight turns getting into spaces. Spaces were level and quite long. Each site was rather secluded so that you felt you were in the forest. Site was hard pack earth, just like in the woods. Cell service was spotty, probably due the all the trees. Only drawback was a bit of a problem with fluctuating power--probably due to a large crowd there on Labor Day. Park had a nice swimming pool, play area, and even goats. There were hay rides in the evenings. Staff was EXTREMELY helpful and pleasant--helping us with a site --when we wanted to stay longer. This is a nice family park. We would stay here again--if in the area. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Motorhome.

The staff here are fantastic! The park is beautiful with lots of trees and gives the impression that you are way off the beaten path. Restrooms were clean and showers hot! The kids loved the hay ride in the evening and loved to see the goats. I have already told friends if they are traveling through Washington they HAVE to stay here. Fantastic!

This park is lovely with trees and nice, secluded sites. I was there off-season so the pool was closed, but the little goats and chickens were there. The park is easy-access from the interstate, but I didn't hear any road noise, and the owners/managers were really very nice and helpful. Really lovely weekend!

Heavily treed RV park & campground, some full service sites, some sites big rig friendly others very small and quite tight. Sites are reasonably level but are not graveled or paved. Interior roads are paved. Table and fire-pits. All fairly private, nice washroom & showers, pool, play area. Quiet. WiFi hot-spot only. Air TV but limited. Staff friendly and helpful. We would stay there again. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice place to stay when traveling through Washington on Hwy 5. We stayed in late September, so a sign on the office door says the office is closed for the winter season, and you do a self check-in. They also have a sister campground about a mile away, so they do make visits to this site. Paved roads with dirt sites and "lots" of trees. You can easily be totally hidden from the sun if you pick the right site. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our motorhome is 36' and we had a little trouble with overhanging trees scraping the top and sides of the motorhome as we tried to navigate the very narrow access roads. Once at the site, backing in was very easy, but the site was far from being level. Lifted the rear as much as possible but to keep the rear tires on the ground the motorhome was still tail down. Lots of kids on bikes, so you really had to be careful driving in or out of campground. With the tall trees, satellite TV was out of the question and no wi-fi...had to use our hotspot. Staff was friendly, campground (and facilities) were clean and well kept. With the motorhome, I don't think I would use this campground again, but smaller motorhomes/5ers/travel trailers with families...this is a great spot.

Located just outside of Tumwater, you are about 3 miles from Olympia. Stayed here for 11 days. The town of Tumwater has all the amenities and a great little farmers market. The campground is well treed, with a very friendly and helpful staff. The road to the campsites is narrow, with some lower hanging tree branches. Be patient and you will be fine. With the heavy tree cover, it gets dark! Be sure to have flashlight for walking to laundry facility or washrooms. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The staff at this campground is terrific! They were very accommodating and ensured we were happy with our space. The park is full of trees and very quiet. The roads are a bit narrow, and some sites would be difficult to park a trailer or rig greater than 25 feet, but they will work with you to find a site that works.

While we loved the owners, we would not stay here again. The bathrooms weren't open yet, but we were not told that when we made reservations. While the park is scenic, with beautiful, mature evergreen trees, the sites are in desperate need of leveling, raking, and fresh gravel, making sites feel muddy and unkempt. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice park in a wooded setting (forget about satellite access here). It reminds us of a State or Federal park. The staff were very nice and helpful at check-in. The roadways are a bit narrow but we didn't have any problems getting to our site. The sites are large and well spaced. We had a full hook-up site and the 30 amp power was a bit on the lower end at a 110 volt with no draw. Running an air conditioner and the electric on the water heater caused the voltage to drop below 103 volt, kicking off my power protection. We will stay here again. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Motorhome.
