The new owners have done a great job renovating the park in the last nine months with completely new store, restrooms and showers, new motors on fishing boats, docks have been repaired and cleaned, the grounds are being maintained, not to mention the fishing was spectacular this year with the warmer winter. It's definitely our favorite place in Washington for our family get together... We camped at Black Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We've been coming here for 25 years and have up to 40 people in our group, so are a little jaded, and tend to overlook the fact that the place is getting a little run down due to aging owners. It is one of the very few places you can park your RV within feet of the waters edge. Nightly fees are very reasonable. The restrooms arent in the best condition, but if you gotta go, they work! Our kids grew up coming here, and now have their own RVs and still keep coming. We camped at Black Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I have been coming here for over 35 years now and have seen this "resort" deteriorate quite a bit. It is no longer the gem it once was. The docks are in poor shape, the boat launch is narrow with no dock and lots of weeds. The small bridge over the creek that once was the entry to the campground is now not capable of holding big RVs so a alternate entry was made through a field which is gravel but a bit rough. The park lacks the amenities that many people want but of which are of no use to us such as pools, playgrounds for the kids, etc. We use our own shower and bathroom and don't down grade a park because of theirs. What this park offers is friendly folks and huge sites that accommodate our 37' motorhome and our car and our bass boat all in one site with plenty of room to spare and all for one fee. There just isn't anywhere else on this lake (or many others for that matter) that will allow that for this price. For those reasons we put up with the old docks and continue to use this as our base when fishing the lake. We do wish that someone could infuse some money into this old favorite to bring it up to par. One note: we have always had 30amp power here, so don't know why the last reviewer said it only has 20amp. We camped at Black Beach Resort in a Motorhome.
This is a family oriented campground, with tent villages and grouped RVs. Dogs were often on invisible "off leash" despite the rules. The goose droppings problem has not improved from former reviews. Docks were overgrown with grass, rotten, and dangerous to walk on for lack of maintenance. The restrooms and showers were so dirty we did not use them. Electric power was only 20 amps so we had to turn off the AC in order to use the microwave, etc. The only plus for this park was that it was on a lake with a pretty view.

Located 8 mi north of Republic on the west side of Curlew Lake. 60 sites are pull through, 32 sites on the water. Sites are very large and grassy with easy access for large rigs with tipouts. During off peak times the owner let my friend and I park my tow vehicle pluss my friends Jeep & boat trailer at the site with lots of room to spare and no extra charge. Setting is beautiful and one of my favorite unknown places in Washington to visit. The lake is known for excellent trout fishing. Small and largemouth bass are also in the lake. Take a small boat through the cut in the south end of the lake to Roberta Lake to find some great bass fishing!! Owners are friendly and helpful if not a little slow at times. Boat and motor rentals are available. They have a volleyball area, horseshoe pits, tether ball, swings, etc. There are 2 docks for small boat moorage close to the camp sites. They have had problems with Geese and their associated mess. It is an ongoing battle and they do their best. If the campground is empty don't be surprised if the owner asks you to let your dog off the leash to chase the geese back into the lake! Nice people, great setting, excellent fishing keep us coming back year after year (for 25 years now). We camped at Black Beach Resort in a Motorhome.
