Date of Stay: September, 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. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Easy trip to Mt. Saint Helens from the campground. Cute little general store and restaurant easy walking distance from the campground. The park owns a golf course.
We are K/M Resorts of America members so our camping was free. We arrived late and were told to just pick a spot. There are a lot of pull thrus. Some spots are close together while others have big grassy areas. We got lucky and have a huge grassy area that's perfect for the kids. They only have 4 campfire pits for the entire park so we had to wait for one to become available. They are $5 a day. A bit of a pain but they do have community fire area. hosts are very friendly and helpful. Pool is indoor and large which is perfect for rainy days. Very close to Mt Rainer Natl Park and Mt St Helens. Lots of fun hiking surround this park. There is a restaurant and high priced grocery nearby.Overall, pleased with this campground. We will be back! We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nightly Rate reflects ROD. ($0) If you like signs with posted rules, this is your place, they are plastered everywhere! We tried the Tengonet Wifi service for one day to see how well it worked. It only connected to one of our 4 devices, and was so slow that it was virtually impossible to do anything on the internet. There are very few 50 amp sites with full hookups. The campground is very quiet, clean and well maintained. The office personnel were very courteous. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Motorhome.
The bath houses have been recently refurbished and are in excellent condition. Several children's activities have also been added. The (lower, older) Maple Grove campsites' roads have recently been re-graveled and some of the sites refurbished. If children's activities, golf, and an in-door pool are important to you, this could be an excellent choice. We prefer staying in the "grove" as it's more a camping experience. In the week we've been here this year there have been been more then 5 campers, with spots for over 100. The lower area offers only water or water/power(30 amp) spots only (due to winter flooding issues). Some of the upper area sites have water/power/sewer/TV. We have stayed here before and would again. Due to our membership class, our actual cost is $0. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
A large park with a section for big rigs with long pull through and back in sites, a separate “Family” section and another section with smaller back in sites in the woods. Only two 50 amps sites, all others 30 amp. Gravel roads and level sites with lots of grass between and around the sites. Some sites for big rigs have trees on both sides so be careful pulling or backing in. Indoor heated pool and spa. Good Wi-Fi and 50 channel cable TV. A very nice and inexpensive ($10) 9 hole golf course. Pet and family friendly. Staff helpful and friendly. Park and landscaping well maintained. Large club house with activities every night during the peak season. Allowed to wash your rig for $5. Located in a mountain valley, between Mt St Helens and Mt Rainer Nat’l parks. Would stay here again. Private membership park, K & M Resorts, but the cost listed is for ROD. They also accept RPI, C to C, AOR, and Passport. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground in a small town. No AT&T and friendly staff. Small sites but quit accessible. As a Coast to Coast member I reserved a site with full hookups, but when I got there I was told that I could not have full hookups, only water and 50 amp. Couldn't figure that one out. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Motorhome.
Wasn't quite sure how to rate this so gave this a mid rating because the park is a bit split into a new area and old area. It is also now a members only park, but when we stumbled in, the staff first directed us to a nearby non-member RV park, then said if we wanted we could park in "The Woods," which is the old part of the park. The new part is nicely kept and grassy with a small pond, though the lots seemed a bit small. The old "woods" part next to the river just has water and power (no WiFi), and feels very abandoned and overgrown. Pool area is showing it's age and the shower/changing rooms were not very clean. Golf course attached to the park. If you are a member, this park seems very nice, but for non-members, I would look elsewhere. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Truck Camper.

Rate reflects Coast2Coast membership. We stayed here five nights. Very pleasant, peaceful CG. Wi-Fi was mostly reliable and we had good satellite reception. Upper CG was mostly full. Area by river was closed and did not appear used in a very long time. Very dark and dank. The 'lake' is not, rather a small pond that needs some definite help. But, all in all, the place is a nice place to stay and we will return. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Our second stay here, and better than the first time. Roads in better shape. Some shade provided by trees in the main hook-up area. Sites ARE very close together, but no problem in or out with 25' trailer on Labor Day weekend & full park. No issues with water or power, but the run to sewer was very long & uphill. Shower/rest rooms were very nice. Golf course in better shape than last time too. Wi-Fi was fast & strong, but erratic & didn't function as was explained at check-in. Labor Day sale up the road at Packwood was a ZOO! Will NOT go up there again, but park was quiet & pleasant despite full load for Holiday weekend. Will definitely go back. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice mix of sites, open full serve, nice shaded sites. Everything you could want Golf and a in-side (heated) pool. Good access to Mt. Rainer and Mt. Saint Helen's. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Date of Stay: April, 2011 - $10.00
This is our second stay at Maple Grove. It was off season so we had full hookups with sewer and 50 amp service. During the busy season this often is not possible. People in the office are helpful and friendly. We wanted a place to relax and this was it. They have a pool and meals on weekends that expands when the park is more full. We will come and stay again even if we can't have sewer and 50 amp service. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We tented at this park one night on Labor Day weekend. We were meeting friends who were arriving on motorcycles, and had three sites reserved. My friend who made the reservations was told the office closed at 6:00 pm so be sure to get there before then (arrival was Saturday). I arrived first, around 5:00 pm to find a sign on the office saying "Saturday we close at 4:00 pm for the barbecue." Luckily I found a woman who worked there and she checked me in. I was told to select any open sites "in the woods." Although the main RV sites in the park were quite nice, though a bit close together, the woods was a different story. The roads were dirt, not gravel, and would likely turn to mud with any rain. A number of the sites looked like they had been carved out of a berm with a D8 Cat. No picnic tables. The bathroom was a very long walk and had two stalls each in the women's and men's rooms. Oh, and I was stung by a wasp after I inadvertently stirred up a paper wasp nest in a rotten stump in the middle of the campsite. My left arm is still swollen. The one redeeming thing was breakfast: $3 for biscuits and gravy, same for scrambled eggs and sausage, same for pancakes and sausage. Coffee and orange juice included. The hosts I encountered were friendly. As a place to set up a tent on a crowded Labor Day weekend, it will do, but there are nicer parks out there. If I had my trailer, I'd try to get one of the RV sites in the main park area, but be prepared to be cheek by jowl with the units on each side of you. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Tent.
This is a very well-run park with lots of extra activities like a BBQ, pancake breakfast, bingo, movie night and live music. We booked for full hook-ups and when we arrived were told that we could not have sewer. We stayed here a week and moved 4 times to take advantage of having sewer. This park is great if you want to see Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. They have a nice pool. The people running the park are friendly and helpful. We will stay here again even if it means moving several times. We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Motorhome.
We stayed 14 days without sewer hook-ups! They were available however they would not move us! A person that came in 3 days after us was allowed to move to full hook-up! When asked why we couldn't we were told it didn't happen! The bathrooms are very dirty and not set up for handicap! Lots of gunk on walls and cobwebs! I was not able to get hot water and one of the stalls was flooded! People and kids cut through your campsite as though it were theirs! We camped at Maple Grove Resort in a Motorhome.
