This is an RV park in the trees and should not be advertised as "Big Rig accessible". Our 40' motorhome could barely manage to navigate the asphalt road through the trees to a call field where we could park. We had 30 amp service only and parked on grassy gravel. We could neither use our OTA antenna or our DirecTV due to the trees around us. The gentleman on a bike who guided us to our site was bossy and rude. He was irate that we could not follow his bike route through the asphalt trail exactly, even though we were almost 13' tall and 40' long. We will never stay here again. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Motorhome.

This looked like an old KOA campground and at one time was probably a very nice park. It now has some permanent residents and the facilities are just OK. The pull through sites were grass and fairly level, we had poor WIFI coverage but it was much better in the Game Room at the office. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We stayed at this location for 4 nites as we visited the Seattle and Olympia area. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Olympia is a convenient place to stay if you want to visit many of the sites in Seattle and Pugent Sound. The only problem is traffic is very congested on Int 5 especially in the morning and late afternoon.

This is a beautiful and clean campground, and the owners couldn't have been any more helpful or gracious. The interior roads, while paved, are tight. While the individual sites, set among towering Douglas Firs, are deep, positioning your RV may take a little time if you are dealing with slides. But the end result will be more than worthwhile! We would not hesitate to stay here again if in the area. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed a week and had a wonderful time. Campground staff could not have been friendlier and they work hard to make this campground a wholesome, family campground. It is not a campground with satellite TV because it is for families that want to go camping, not sit in front of a television. There is limited Internet but it is available at the main building. My AT&T worked fine. For families, safe for kids to ride bikes, a nice clean swimming pool in season, a playground, barn with animals, and okay to have campfires, which are often prohibited in the state parks in the summer. Sites did have some leveling issues but again, this is not one of those packed in like sardines on pavement campgrounds and we would rather level the trailer and have a roomy, treed site. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Olympia is our hometown so a bit biased. Only 15 minutes away and an awesome Farmer's Market, Children's Museum, free Capitol tours, and charming waterfront downtown. This campground is a great base for touring Mt Rainier, Mt St Helens, the Kitsap Peninsula, as well as biking and hiking close by.

The good: The folks running the campground--absolutely wonderful, eager to help and please. Private, trees, can have campfires (and wood available for purchase), pool, inexpensive. Perfect for anyone wanted a real campy, rustic, no frills experience.

The bad (for us): with any rain, muddy, pine needles, messy. Sites so-so on being level, not easily accessed by motor home due to trees and narrow roads (we're 35 feet). No WiFi, no cable, zero dish access due to the trees, very unreliable electric. It's older, and needs improvements. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Motorhome.

Camped with our 4-yr old granddaughter. Got a nice site near the farm animals. Staff assisting us were great! We enjoyed the pool, hay ride, everything about the place! DTV and ATT card worked. When we asked our granddaughter if she liked this campground or the other one we visited last week she said THIS ONE! We will be back. We camped at American Heritage Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
