Had a flat, level, gravel site with grass on both side of the site. Had electric and water. Plug was 50 amp so need an adapter to downsize to 30 amp. Trees in area. Free dump site when leaving. AT&T worked well. WI-FI was excellent. Heard trains passing through. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The RV park is well signed from the freeway. You have to pass through a 14 foot tunnel just before you get to the park. Tunnel did not look that high, but a 13'6" rig in our group fit with no problems.

Secluded, wooded campground. We had asked for a pull-thru when we booked in January. Upon arrival was told we were in a crack-in spot instead w/no other spots available. Roads are gravel and curvy and since we were way at the back of the campground at the dead end road, it was interesting navigating into our spot. We had to stop and walk to the spot to analyze when to unhook car/trailer but our spot was wide enough to pull the car in and drag the trailer through the rocks to park it next to the coach. Luckily there's a spur road a bit away from the spot so husband was able to back coach up past that road after unhooking so he could turn coach around to back into the spot. A LOT of work for a one-night stay! Heavy trees so no satellite, no cable but decent phone signal. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Riverbend Campground is a spacious, comfortable campground sprawling along the Nisqually River just east of the town of Nisqually. I stayed there in June of 2017 while I was moving out of my home in Olympia. The camping sites are generally roomy (though there was a horseshoe pit in front of mine that made backing my 5th-wheel into the site challenging), the roads are wide, and the staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely return if my travels took me back to the Olympia area. The availability of full-hookup sites seems limited. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This CG has more permanent residents than overnighters. The full hook ups and 50 amp service seem to be for them...we got a 30 amp/water site, no sewer. We could not back our 41 ft 5th wheel into the first site assigned due to close proximity of huge trees, but were able to set up in adjacent site with no issues. The manager and another worker trimmed tree branches away that would have impacted the side and roof of our RV. Pads are gravel, mostly level. Showers cost twenty five cents a minute. Two toilets of ancient design complete the bathroom setup. Pet crap (HUGE DOG) all behind our site, left behind from previous campers. The current CG owners are working to upgrade the CG, but as it is now, way overpriced for what you get. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pulled into this campground off I-5 due to traffic pile up. We arrived at about 2:30 pm, no one at the guard shack where check in is supposed to take place so another guest got us through the so called security gate, ran into the host in the grounds. There were no sites available with sewer hookup so had to settle for water and power only with only 50 and 20 amp available and no cable + wifi was sporadic. Place was in dire need of a good grooming and the services looked to need upgrading. IMHO the place is way over priced at $40.00 USD for what we received for one night. We camped here in a 5th wheel... We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Most of this CG is in a forest. One of three front desk staff was friendly, the other two not so. Credit cards accepted. Was quoted one price and charged another higher price, manager came out of her office and said it was rate change, although the current map still had the old price. CG roads are asphalt in ok shape but very narrow and winding through trees. Old, tall trees with heavy underbrush but no significant overhead obstacles, sharp turns. Sites are W/E-20/30/50, most WITH NO SEWER, but CG has a dump station. Sites are dirt or weed grass, almost level, pedestal near rear. No patio, some picnic tables. Sites have fire rings. Low water pressure. Nice newer playground. No cable. We did get a few junk stations via antenna. T-Mobil coverage at "5-bars" and Wi-Fi was ok. Place needs a good grooming and the services looked to need upgrading. IMHO the place is way over priced at $40.00 USD for what we received for one night. WILL NOT STAY AGAIN, due mostly to price change. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park like setting along the river and off the highway but frequent trains pass nearby. Staff was friendly at check in. Some permanent residents but doesn't have too much of a trailer park ambiance. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice clean campground with a brand new restroom-shower-laundry facility. Tent sites on the river. Awesome Salmon fishing included. Friendly staff w/security checks. Under new management. Would definitely go back! We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Huge number of permanent and semi permanent sites. 10 pull thru sites for overnight, 10+ more back-ins. Water and 50 amps at our site, cable TV listed, but not available at our site. Dump station nearby. Some paved interior roads, some gravel. Gravel sites, grass in between. $10 additional pet charge, $6 additional guest vehicle. Lots of rules, seem to be not enforced for the permanent residents. There is a one-way tunnel prior to the entrance; it has a 14' clearance. It was convenient for our purpose, but I would not stay here again. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.
