28 Parks near Puyallup, Washington
Aug 2015 - $34.00
First, the good...the young woman in the office was extremely helpful and pleasant. While the RV park is also a mobile home park, the two are kept separate. There is a pretty little creek (not really accessible) that runs along the back of the property.
We stayed here on the weekend of the drag races, so the place was pretty full.
Now for the rest...
We had reservations but some people didn't leave so what we reserved was not available and we had two options - parallel park our 40' 5th wheel between two carnival rigs or back into a spot that was 30 amp service. Couldn't back in all the way because of overhanging tree limbs.
The "dog walk" is a joke. It's actually a road w/ signs threatening fines if we don't pick up after our dogs. My dogs won't poop on a road. Oh, yeah, the dog walk is where they wanted to parallel park us.
There are NO refunds. Make sure you like your spot before paying by cash or check (they don't take credit cards.)
The place is not kept up. The roads are fairly narrow. The sites are adequately wide. Trees surround the park.
We would NOT stay here again. - User3146

Do to the past reviews, we were a little reluctant to stay at this park. We found the office person very friendly and helpful. Our site was 75' x 20. Very adequate. Very nice and friendly park. If I were you I would ignore the past reviews. The road in is blacktop, and the parking sites and on Gravel, so what. We stayed over the 4th of July and were near an Indian Reservations. The fireworks sounded like dynamite. My two little dogs were shaking the whole week we were there. Not the parks fault. We would definitely stay their again, but not over the 4 th of July. - Journey39k

Nothing as advertised. Hookups were at the back of the site so we had to drive to get a longer TV cable and extension for sewer. Fortunately we had an extra water line. TV cable was useless as the cable in my site did not work except for an Xfinity advertisement. We did have one of the few picnic tables but it was so old and dirty I would not use it. WiFi worked off and on. We decided to swim since we had nothing to do but office closed early so we couldn't get the key. Discovered after reading the sign on the pool gate that the pool would be open at the discretion of the office. The pool had a cover over it when we drove in so it was not being used anyway. Would get my money back and move since I am here for three nights but there is a "no refund policy." Obviously, I would never stay here again. - Missdijean

What a pleasant place to stay! I think it would be a little crowded if all the spaces were full, but that will probably only happen during the fair. The fairgrounds owns a lot of adjacent property, one of which is bordered by blackberry bushes. That lot also has two apple trees, two pear trees and two Italian plum trees. What a treasure!
The camp host was very friendly and helpful.
There were several full-time RVers and they organized some activities. - User3146

Had a relative in a nearby hospital, making this location very convient. As stated before, ground is soft when rains hit, but the camp host showed me a good spot. Nothing special about the park, but well suited for area travels. Weather turned very cold while there, causing water problems, but worked though it. Site can get very close but there were about 10 rvs on site, so plenty of room. - sfretts

If you're going to see stuff or do something in Tacoma this is a great location. As mentioned, it's just a big grassy parking lot with full hookups. You can save $5/night by signing up and paying in the Fair office. I can't say that it's convenient for running into Seattle. The fact of the matter is the traffic into Seattle is horrible. You can pretty much count on 1.5 + hrs to drive 30 or 40 miles unless you get very lucky. Right now it's a combination of traffic volume, construction, weather, and accidents. We went into the Seattle from here 3 times and each time it was at least 1.5 hrs each way. That being said I'm not sure there's any place else to stay around the area that would be any better. When we stayed here there were only about a dozen sites filled so we had plenty of space. When it's full you'd pretty much be right on top of one another. Verizon MiFi worked great. We'd stay here again. - pumper9x9

A nice park. Has gone through a lot since the flood in 2006. Still seems to be picking up the pieces. - cnelson

The sites are wide and there is a pool and showers. However, after we got our motorhome leveled off and slide outs extended we discovered that there are NO WATER connections at the sites. All plastic pipes above ground have been broken at each site. Camp Host offered no realistic explanation, nor was there a note in the sign up box to that effect. There is a fresh water spigot near the dump station, but who knew we needed to fill up before setting up ? There are showers available for use but they're not in great shape. We will not return to this Elks Lodge unless the water issue is corrected. - RVtravelers2

30 Amp with Water and easy access Dump station. Showers available when the pool is open or just ask and they will let you use them. Grass spots with enough room that makes it comfortable. We eat Sunday breakfast and had dinner a couple of times. They have a golf course next to them that is private but they have an arrangement so that if you are staying there you can use it. Swimming pool available showers are available in the pool house if you ask.
I can only give an overall grade of 8 to any site that does not have sewer connection at the pad. But other than that this is a 10 site. - Gilbert & Gail

This RV park is mostly for people that want to stay longer term. Lots are larger with small rock and asphalt pads. Sewer hookups are different and on the wrong side of the RV sometimes.
There is about a lot of rules there and there are 2 that seem a bit extreme to us. One is that we had to weed our lots even though it cost us $485 a month. The other is that the RV's next to you can not hear noise from your area, which is difficult if your outside with friend BBQing. So this is not a place to stay if you like to have any social time with family or friends. Also electric is not included, and that is fine however out electric bill was really high and we were gone 2 weeks of each month. We were selling a house at the time and our 5 bedroom SB had a lower electric bill then the RV did. So not sure why that was. - Sohapi

We had to stay here over a month as it was the only RV park in the area of our family's residence. Rate reflected is for a monthly rate of $425. Expect $40 back ground check (which has to be submitted prior to going to the park), and a amazing 13 page document of "rules". If staying a month or more you must contact the Electric company to have them activate your site. No laundry facilities, no pool, no amenities at all. Manager very snooty woman who is seldom around when you need information. We would not go back. - KomfortTravelers

Sites are not all that wide here. We had people sitting only a couple of feet away from us near their fire ring. We could not open any windows because of the smoke from their fire. Kind of a sketchy place, but we had no problems. There are people living in tents here who spend 7 nights, leave for 1 and then come back. Sites are mostly level and paved. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. OTA TV was poor, no networks found. We had ION and a couple of PBS type stations. Not a place we are likely to return to, but our stay was acceptable. - Bob and Inga

Dogs barking (pit bulls), campers burning garbage (stinks) One trailer was allowing their tanks to drain onto campsite and running into street. Sites are long enough for big rigs. 7 day limit. Some trailers were really run down. We will not be back unless we have to. We usually stay at the Puyallup Fairgrounds but couldn't because the fair was going on. - catrst

What a gem this place is. We were a little underwhelmed when we arrived but the surroundings are beautiful and it was a wonderful place to stay. Sites are asphalt and level. Stayed for 5 days. Loved the bike/walking path. Can ride for miles along the river and through the trees without crossing a road! If you are into disc golf this is the place for you! Grass is brown because they don't water but the trees are magnificent. It must be beautiful in the fall. They do keep the trees trimmed so they don't rub on your rig. We had no problem with our 38' class A motorhome. Camp host is a great guy. No wifi but Verizon LTE is strong and hotspot worked great. Our Directv roof mounted dish also worked great, even through the trees. Nice to have shade at our site #12. It's about a 45 minute drive to downtown Seattle and if I came back I would look into the public transportation as an option to driving. - thekites

We stayed here after moving out of our house due to military orders. One of the quietest parks I have ever been too. And talk about green! The park is for DoD ID cards only. Located close to the runway of McChord AFB. You would think plane noise would be a problem but it wasn't. We stayed on site 37. Ample room for parking. The site itself was pretty level but if you have to set up in the hours of darkness, like I did, bring a headlamp because it is DARK! There is a large playground for kids and plenty of trails and low traffic roads. A running trail goes the entire length of the runway and into the base itself. Burger King and post shopping facilities are under 5 minutes away via car. The office staff are extremely friendly. There is WiFi available but we used my Verizon phone as a hotspot and had ample access. There is a clubhouse available as well as a large pavilion for rental. This would be an excellent place to stay if you wanted a base camp for exploring the Puget Sound area. For the money you can't beat it. Overall this a very nice campground and I would definitely stay here again. - Jim in WA

This is a beautiful spot! Beware - it is not big rig friendly. There is only 1 site for a big rig (#49). After you come into the campground, do not drive around the circle as the trees, overhead branches and corners are tight. You can back into the site directly from in front of the cabins. This site is along the amphitheater which gives extra room. It is a very wooded campground, but we were able to get satellite. Full 50 amp hook-ups. We made this reservation 6 months ago and are certainly glad we did. It is a hidden gem that is close to seeing everything in Tacoma and Seattle. Check-in is at 2:30! We never saw a campground host or anyone at the gate. - Freedom Bus

Large site and with fifth wheel parked, it made a very private area with rig parked between site and road. Quiet, full hookup but very popular area. Reservations suggested. I made mine in March for July and 6 days was the longest "open" time. - Edd505

We arrived at 3:30 in the afternoon. Wait at gate 12 minutes. Gate attendant was very professional and friendly. Drive through the park was very tight with trees leaning over the roadway. We drive a 40 ft DP. The site we were in was the only site that our rig would fit in, it was a drive through, but we had to drive in and back out.
Campsites are medium distance apart and paved. Hookups were well placed. One note - there were no trash cans, just recycle.
Beach access is very nice with a very large parking lot. The beach is typical salt water with a very low slope.
We will not be returning to camp. - Half_Timer

Pros - great store, manager very helpful, close to Mt Rainier and Seattle, sites are fairly level and large, parts of the park are very nice, great cable TV Cons - Management requires you to sign a 5 page contract, Owner operates tractor throughout the park daily, owner has many disagreements with tenants, dusty, many permanent trailers that are a little messy, internet costs extra, is slow, and is by a third party, some questionable people in the park at night, they require that you have your doggie bag out and visible when walking your pet, no dog area I enjoyed my stay here but felt that it would be easy to get in an argument with the manager who, in my opinion means well but is quick to anger. - Donco

Friendly and helpful staff. Gravel streets & sites. All back-ins. Very easy parking from wide streets; no posts, rocks, fences, etc. Sites vary in size; ours was 20 feet wide. No picnic tables or fire rings. Well maintained. Water pressure 60#. On grounds store sells sandwiches in addition to usual RV Park store supplies. Many permanent residents; they are friendly and generally have attractive, well kept sites. Their children and pets are well behaved. Many tree & shrub plantings, no grass, no mowers, no leaf blowers – hooray. The wooded creek toward the back of the park has a sand bag levee. Choose higher ground in high water conditions. Good Verizon signal. Cable TV good except for very poor reception on ABC & NBC. We felt peaceful in the pleasant surroundings and will come here again. Environmentally unconscious; no recycling. - meanderingman

I spent a week and a half here and enjoyed it. The owner and people working at the park were friendly and helpful. I think this is the best park in the south sound area and will stay there whenever I visit the area. They have a large gravel pull through section with full hookups, its gently sloped back to front and fairly level but un-landscaped, no picnic tables. The store is pretty well supplied. Spots along the creek are in the long term section. - User1806
