13 Parks near Randle, Washington
Jul 2016 - $0.00
We are members, so our stay did not actually cost us anything.
Definite improvement in cleanliness in the bathrooms since the last time we stayed there. The upper area of the park looked well cared for, but we prefer to stay in The Grove, which is more primitive and quiet. - Impkitti

Sep 2015 - $2.00
We are members, so the $2.00 was for wifi, which was very good, even in The Grove.
We came in on Monday of the three day weekend after boondocking for four days. I was really looking forward to a nice, long shower. The bathhouse nearest The Grove was filthy. I thought maybe overuse from the long weekend, but the next day it was just as dirty and the dead, dry qtip was still under the bench in the shower area. Wednesday, they looked like someone had made an effort to clean, but there was dust and grime on all the top edges of the mopboards, back splashes and fixtures. I wiped some of them down with a wet paper towel as a test.
While the pool and hot tub were very clean, the changing rooms were not much better than the bathhouse.
Our site was nice, near the river and very quiet except for road noise (which you cannot escape due to the bridge).
The Grove area does not have full service, but if you want privacy and a woodland camp spot, it is the best place on the site. There are even wooded sites near the golf course. - Impkitti

We stayed here a few days while exploring Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier. Our price reflects Passport America rate. They offers open, sunny sites, or shady spots under the pines. We had plenty of wiggle room in our site and didn't feel cramped. Trees have been well trimmed and were not a problem for our motorhome. Fifty amp service and water were at the site. Dump station is free to those staying in the park. Didn't use the laundry or bathrooms so can't comment on those, except to say that each evening several van loads of people pulled in to use the shower. - WGlengrl

Beautiful campground with mature pine trees providing lots of shade to most sites. Long spacious pull thru and back-in sites with grass ground cover. 50 and/or 30 amp electric. No sewer, but dump was available for an additional $5.00. Laundry facility and firewood available. Conveniently located 1 hr from Mt. St Helens and Mt. Rainier. Located on Highway 12 so there is some noise but trees along road dampen noise somewhat. Was surprised to not see many more campers in such a nice park but found out park only advertises with Passport America. Drove by several other campgrounds that had several campers, but parks did not look nearly as appealing as this one. Park staff was very friendly. Great value. Would definitely stay here again. - Dewster
Sep 2015 - $18.00
Stayed for three nights to visit Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainer. This is a very convenient location (Randle, WA) for visiting between the two parks. The campground is a little odd. It is a family business with extremely nice people. They had just harvested their garden and shared the bounty with us. The office is extremely messy- looks like a bad junk store but that did not bother me.
The laundry room was large and worked but had not been cleaned for a while. Again, this did not bother me as I made sure the machines were clean and they were. So honestly I was pretty pleased with the park overall. Nice people, spacious sites and convenient with an acceptable price.
The price reflects the Passport America discount. My husband and I would stay again. - lindy j

This park is close to Hwy 12 but by 9-10pm the road noise was much quieter. We were in the full hookup area, however the water/electricity hookups looked lush and tree shaded, and many were very close to the river. 2 pools, both almost constantly occupied by kids, many play areas and a zip line that was also almost constantly in use. This is a wonderful RV park for kids. We had absolutely no cell service or WiFi. Lounge, store, furniture around pool need serious upgrading. - RVtripper

I know this place has gotten some not-so-nice reviews, but we ended up extending our stay from 4 days to 2 weeks because of the location (ideally situated between Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Ranier, plus lots and lots of other outdoor recreational opportunities) and the fabulous $ value for what it cost us to stay. Yes, the hookups are a bit weird - 4 RV's share one utility location. Yes, it's on a highway so traffic noise can be an issue. But...the trees are large and lovely, there is tons of grassy space between you and your neighbors, interior roads are spacious and easy to navigate, the camp store and pool are nice to have, and you just can't beat the per night cost. The office manager is totally on top of things and honest; we converted from a nightly rate to a weekly rate when we extended our stay and when we went to inquire about a refund of the difference she had already issued the credit to our credit card! Verizon wireless phone service works there but not our 4G data plan. Their wifi only works reliably if you go hang out in the office/clubhouse, because this is such a large park and the RV sites are rather far away. The park covers such a large amount of ground that it is no problem to find a place to walk your dog. The current owners have owned it only 4 years and they are aware that improvements need to be made, and wow, have they ever taken on a huge place. As a side note, the first week we were in site #85 and due to the trees we had great shade but no Dish reception. Week two we moved to site #117 with no trees but great Dish reception. - Idaho RV'er

If you are looking for the ultimate rundown and neglected campground, Cascades Peak is here for you. It was probably a very nice park in its day, but it is obvious the owners have not put in any upkeep in years. From overgrown, un-level gravel sites, to antiquated power, water and sewer connections. Water pressure was so low. Most picnic tables and lights are in disrepair, the bathrooms and laundry are rundown. WiFi is only available in front of the laundry. There is so much potential here, it is sad. - Rich & Cathy Kelly

Our rate reflects our access pass. What a find, this place was a gem! I give it an 8 because of no hook-ups but you could not find a nicer primitive campground than this place. We were tempted to stay in a nearby park where you see your neighbor all day and are glad we came here! Fantastic hiking trails among trees that are over 600 years old. We counted over 300 rings on a nearby downed tree. The spots are large and very private. Many spots back up to the Cispus river. The restrooms are primitive but kept very clean and fresh. Firewood is sold at the park, but you get more for your money buying it at the Randle store on the way in. We will definitely be back. Our RV is 25' long. - kcjflea

The sites are well-spaced. We have a 40' motorhome and we had to choose a double site ($38 regular; $19 w/Golden Age Pass) because what was left in single sites were small. Reservations are definitely recommended here. It's very busy. Also, for big rigs, you really can't go by the site size on the reservation site because of huge trees at the corner of the sites, rocks, slant of sites and narrow campground road. There is no dump station. This is very convenient for touring Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Ranier parks. Hwy 25 to the campground is paved but narrow and bumpy. It's not steep. There is very little river access here because of a steep bluff. Verizon or Sirius satellite radio did not work in this thick forest. - nbi600

Amazing Forest service campground. No hookups but the sites are large and very private, paved and level and lots of room for slideouts and awnings. Only one loop open when we arrived as the campground was closing in 10 days. No problem with a 35' Class A. Quiet & peaceful does not adequately describe the tranquility of this place. Very nice trail system for walking. We will be back again next year for 3-4 days. - j&c rocket

The Tacoma Power parks are always well funded, organized, and clean. Taidnapam is one of our favorites parks. We like to fish from the fishing bridge and also fish from the Mossyrock dam on highway 12. On our stay the park was very quiet. - Chris F

This was a great campground. Very clean, and sites were spacious and wooded. Close to Riffe lake, Mt. Ranier, and Mt. St. Helen. Hidden gem! Would definitely stay there again. - wentercon

We absolutely love this park. It's beautiful, the sites are large, and the playground is a joy. Best spots if you have children is one of the spots that backs up to the playground. Trees give you some privacy, but it's just close enough that you can monitor your kiddos and enjoy visiting outside. The bridge is great for fishing and there is a nice swim hole during summer time. It gets pretty busy in the summer and on holiday weekends. It's close to Morton where there is a small grocery store, gas, and a few restaurants. We didn't get AT&T cell service in the park. We would probably stay here often if we weren't members at the nearby K&M Resorts of America campground. - Wendle123

We arrived a day early and they helped us out by getting us a site. We moved to our real site the next morning and everything was great. The sites are pine needles and not very level which makes for leveling problems and standing water after it rains. Most sites are surrounded by huge old trees. The next night the park lost power for approx. 4 hours. We didn't have power, however our neighbor did. I was told it was probably my rig but they would check it out. Turned out to be a bad site breaker. Was told they would replace it but no one did so we had on and off power all night. We left the next morning at 11:00 and still no fix to our problem. Just horrible service. - illini777

Really a nice quaint little campground. We did not spend too much time there other than mornings and nights but while we were there we really enjoyed it. Our site was very long and gave us almost total privacy. It was level and easy to get in to. The check in was very easy and there was really no need to escort us since we were right next to our site at the entrance.
The wifi was the best we have had in any of to 80 campgrounds we have visited, fast and always available. Only negative was that there was no cable or OTA channels.
Very close to the entrance of Mt. Rainier National Park.
Would definitely stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

Our experience was just the opposite of the last reviewer; we were there in August, as well, which is definitely a busy time for this busy national park; I guess we expect people to be using the campgrounds nearby. We loved the trees - gave us nice shade, and cool little 'coves' for each site. Some sites are in full sun with no trees, so my suggestion is if you're a longer rig, then ask for a site that you don't have to work around trees; we were 30' and had no trouble whatsoever backing in. Garbage was picked up twice a day; again, busy park = lots of garbage, but we saw them picking it up regularly. The two drawbacks have been stated: there's only one bathroom and one shower, but they're nice and the wait was not more than five minutes as this is a small park - there's a seating area there in the bath/laundry house where the WiFi is, so it was no big deal to wait. Two w/d's would have been nice as we had laundry to do, but the walk to any site is not more than one minute, so flipping two loads of laundry was no difficulty. And at $1.50/load, it was a real bargain. No Verizon; too remote a place - not much service in the park, either. The owners were very nice; received a couple of packages for us which was very helpful for us full-timers. The price was very commensurate for being 5 minutes outside a national park. We would definitely come back! - Jolly Out There

Campground is in the Southwest corner of the park. Spaces are reasonably separated but most are pretty tight and the loop road is narrow with many trees to avoid. Be careful in a bigger rig. this is a pretty basic campground typical of the NFS. Has water and restrooms but that is about it. Can't beat the location if you are exploring Mt. Rainer from the SouthWest side. - DennisA

Nice park in the National Park. Good sites, great views. Water available in the park. No showers, no Wi-Fi signal, no TV signal, no phone reception. May dump on way out of park and refill tanks. - JimSC

Nice park and we had no problems getting into our pull through site. A good location to explore the National park. - tsparky

If you're ok with no hookups, this is an excellent choice. Pit toilets. We were there midweek and only two other campers, guess total number of sites 20 to 25. Maybe different on week ends. Washington parks pass fee area but didn't see a pay slot otherwise. Large pull through sites, level, we were able to get satellite but probably not at most sites, cell service unavailable. Had some concerns prior to arriving about road if there was rain but no problem, compacted gravel roads and sites. 2 miles from Ashford and pretty near Rainier NP. - abqnm
Aug 2014 - $0.00
$0 per night was for a primitive site (vault toilets, scattered water faucets, no dump station, no trash pickup/pack it out) with a picnic table and fire ring. You do have to have the WA State Discover pass—$30 to $35 depending on where you purchase it—in order to use the sites. All sites are level gravel shaded by huge trees. We used this lovely campground as our base to visit Mt. Rainier. We stopped in Yelm to do our major shopping as there are slim pickings in the small quaint towns near Mt. Rainier. During our week-long stay the campground was open and quiet during the week and became bustling busy with horses and their owners over the weekend, but it was wonderful to hear the horses whinnying instead of vehicle traffic noise. The scenic roadways have awesome vistas and pull-offs to access its hundreds of miles of trails. AT&T cell service was non-existent. Our Millenicom jetpack was getting two bars of 3G which was good enough for some Internet access. - DD Rolling Ranch

After doing some research for places that could accommodate a larger RV outside the west entrance of Mt. Rainier Natl. Park near Ashford we found very little available. A nearby RV park (Monthaven) is the only place available that has hook-ups but their web site basically read as though RV'rs and their guests are not welcome so we remembered the Sahara Creek DNR Horse camp which is located about 8 miles outside the park entrance. Sahara Creek (Nicholson) horse camp is in a beautiful wooded setting. Most sites are very large and roomy pull throughs that would accommodate the longest RV and a trailer or Toad with ease. Most of the sites have picnic tables and fire grates. There is a central grassy area that features,of all things, horse shoe pits for playing a round of horse shoes (bring your own shoes) and a building that houses a dozen or more picnic tables for group gatherings under cover when the weather isn't so good. There are two water spigots available and pit toilets. There is no garbage service so pack out what you bring in please. On busy weekends or holidays the park is usually packed with horse trailers and riders as the campground serves a large system of horse trails. During the off seasons and mid week the campground can be all but deserted. We had the whole place nearly to ourselves for the 3 days we stayed here. As it is a horse camp you can expect to find some horse fritters, mule muffins, you know horse crap around the area although most of the horse people are good about cleaning up after their animals. There is no daily charge for using the campground however a Washington State Discover Pass is required. Passes can be obtained at Walmart, sporting goods stores or almost anywhere fishing and hunting licenses are sold for $35 for a yearly pass or $11 for daily passes. Passes can also be bought online. If you don't need hookups and need a place to park a big rig while you explore the area and or Mt Rainier Natl. Park, or just need a place to pull in for a night, this park is an awesome alternative to the local nu-hospitable and expensive RV park. We loved our stay and will be back again. Price of $1 is because you can't enter zero in the field. There is no fee other than the above stated passes. - NwJeeper

This campground is a great place to stay for small RV's, tent trailers, and tents of course. The loops are pretty tight and I would not recommend bringing an RV any longer than 22ft. Located along the Cowlitz River, this campground sits next to Mt Rainier National Park. My family has camped here numerous times through out the last 23 years. My sons favorite thing about this place was the swimming hole about 1/4 mile up the river from the main campground. The locals call this place "blue hole". The water is very cold even in the mid August heat. - Jay Gustin

Located just outside Mount Rainier... this park is a hidden gem operated by Forest Service. Camp Host is very helpful in situating trailer and enforces quiet hours. Spots have privacy, not all crowded in like at Mount Rainier campground. Easy access to Mount Ranier and Packwood is a town with an interesting history We camped in a grove of trees next to the river! We would stay here again. Admin note: park road and campsites have been reported as tight for larger RVs. - Jim Lee

This campground is mainly for those that are fishing. There really is nothing to do at this RV park as well as no cell phone service. There are no showers. They tell you to use the event center in town and those bathrooms are porta potties. The cable TV is very poor as a lot of the channels are not viewable due to the condition of the cable in the campground. Most of the campers here are long term. I will not stay here again. There are others in the area that are more suitable for RV's. - Cactus Pete

No showers, Porta Potties. Sites very close together (as in parking lot). Staff friendly. Beautiful lake. - Uh-Oh
