27 Parks near Shelton, Washington
Aug 2016 - $18.00
We were almost surprised how nice it was after reading the most recent review. We were expecting gravel pads that were not level and instead found a park with concrete pads, asphalt roads, and some of the cleanest facilities that we have encountered. The rate also includes use of the hotel pool, fitness room, and hot tub - all a short walk from the RV Park.
The restrooms/showers are very nice with tile floors and have shampoo/soap dispensers in the showers. The laundry room has 3 washers and 3 dryers that are all kept up and are only 75 cents a load. The wi-fi at the park was the only downfall as it was very slow.
The spots themselves have concrete pads, well maintained grass, and include 50amp, water, sewer and cable tv with 60+ channels. - Bay Area Early retirees

This is our third stay here in the last 5 years. As noted by others, check in is at the casino hotel. This is always a hassle - especially when you have to find someplace to park the RV before going to register. 18 of the sites are pull through with the rest being back in. The interior roads are asphalt or gravel. The sites are gravel and many appear (from the numerous blocks I saw being used) to not be very level. Site length will be a problem for many larger rigs. Site width is OK - maybe 15' between pads. We had a barely level enough, gravel, pull through, FHU site. I believe all sites are FHU with 50+ channel cable TV. The WIFI worked well for our minimal (e-mail and surfing) needs - it even worked OK after it got dark. There is nothing recreational in the park, but the hotel indoor pool and hot tube are available to RV park customers. I saw no signs of any recycling. This park fills up most nights during the summer season. So, call ahead for reservations - especially if you want to stay on a weekend. - Jerry S

We have a 45' motor home and must be level in order to extend our slides. Our size and leveling limitations eliminates many choices of locations. Checking in/out is a hassle as their are no signs to guide you. Suggest you ask for your assigned space and park. Then walk or drive or to the hotel for registration. - Don A

This is an alternative kind of camp ground for us. You must be an Elk member to stay here. It is not a public campground. My overall reaction to staying here for 2 nights is positive, in spite of what I may now explain.
The layout is interesting - not all that level and definitely not groomed. There are 4 or 5 pull through sites and 15 or so back in sites. All are E/W only. Some of the interior roads are in fairly good shape, others not so much. There is a dump site as you leave; the power was only 30 amp or less. (It was over 90 degrees each day - we ran the generator.) There is wi-fi at no cost - not bad but a little spotty. Our DirecTv worked as well as some local channels on the wind-up antenna. There were only 5 or 6 other rigs in the park when we were here. The price was terrific! All on the honor system - put the money in the envelope and the envelope in the tube.
We never met the camp host, however we were there for the Thursday night Bingo in the lodge basement, where we also found a fairly decent hamburger and sandwich menu. The lodge isn't open often - Thursday and Friday nights primarily. The road out is scary - we will be exiting thru the entrance, thank you very much! We might come back here. We have friends in the area and like the price. - BethnBubba

You must be an Elks Lodge Member. The sites are fairly large and easy to access. There is a large grassy area where we ran our two dogs. beautiful views and the lodge is very nice.
Camp host provided a welcome package, we enjoyed her company and think she is the best host we've ever met. Enjoyed Dinner during Thursday Bingo and Had fun at the Friday Country Dance. Sad that we missed the live Band on Saturday. Volunteer staff very helpful and friendly. - Camper2541

We stayed here in a motorhome for several months (The monthly rate went up to $450 January 2015). It's a nice place with several of the RV spots on the water (next to the restaurant).
Level spots, most of good size. Good water, cable TV & good wifi (usually better than my Verizon with the booster).
The bathrooms are private with adequate hot water, but the showers cost 50 cents for five minutes. The laundry room had 2 sets of washer/dryer ($1.50 wash & $1 dry for 38min).
There is a restaurant across the street & a small dock in Spencer Lake for our use.
The owner is serious about the 5 mph speed limit.... I'd stay there again. - becida

Located at 1111 E. Pickering Rd., N of Shelton on Hwy 3. Has good gravel interior roads, roomy, level, gravel and grass sites. Has very friendly owners: we were allowed to pick our site. Seems like 10 units lived here full time. Has excellent cable TV service. Lots of trees in the area, but nearby ones were trimmed high and did not interfere with slide outs or awnings. Was a clean and quiet RV park. Rained a lot when we were here, so very little outdoor activity noticed. Verizon worked well for phone and internet. - renodick

A wonderful state marine park. Prices have risen pretty high. There are a few sites with good electric and water, but most are without hookups. This is one of the best managed parks in Washington. Hookup sites are $35, dry are $30. There are 22 sites and a group site. Some are quite near Puget Sound. - PALPJL

A beautiful little park on Hartstine Island in Puget Sound about 14 miles from Shelton. The place is just lovely and taken very good care of. There is no dump station- closest one is not near. There is water available and the public rest rooms are very nice. Showers take quarters- 50¢ for 3 minutes. This is not real close to anything, but if you are a boater or want to use your kayak this is a wonderful spot. - PALPJL

This is a small State Park in the Olympic National Forest system. There are 37 campsites, of which 18 are utility (30/50) sites, 17 are tent sites, and 2 are for bikers/hikers. This park does not take reservations, it's first come, first serve. It was August, mid-week (Wednesday), and I arrived around 11:00 AM. Campground was half-full, with only a few utility spots available. By Thursday, it was full (and kind of noisy!!!)! The camping spaces are "crammed" together. There are lots of trees for good shade, but you can still look out your window and wave to your neighboring camper. Some of the utility slots are back-in, and some are "half-circles" (try "bending" your RV around that slot!). If your RV is larger than 30 feet, you may not fit in any of the utility spaces, let alone trying to get into them! The driving road through the camping area is narrow and runs up and down hill in a circle with sharp curves. I had a back-in spot, but trying to back in was laborious. Fortunately, a very nice young boy from the neighboring camping spot offered to help me get in. The utility sites have an adequate place to pitch a tent next to your RV, and a fire-pit and picnic table. TV reception via antenna is adequate, not perfect, but adequate. There are hiking trails, and there is a beach across the highway. Next door to the park is a public RV resort with a laundromat, but I'm not sure if you're "allowed" to use the laundromat if you are staying at the State Park. I stayed two nights. If you leave your windows open while sleeping, you will hear the traffic on US Highway 101, even at 3:00 AM! - JJandCP

This is a very small RV park right in front of the water. It's clean, has the basics, and is conveniently located. Over-priced, however, in my opinion. I wouldn't go back for this reason. - Lewis C

The park has a view to die for. It is small, quiet and in a beautiful setting. No negatives, except that there is a (Resort Fee) imposed that offsets your Good Sam discount. - BMonk

The park is right off the highway and pretty tricky to get in and out. The back end of our motorhome drug coming out of the park. This park isn't really meant for larger rv's and no where to park a tow vehicle. Small park with little privacy. But it is clean, friendly staff and nice rocky beach area. Beautiful views of the Hood Canal. - ckharvey

We stayed in #8 for two nights. Recommend staying in rear of resort due to road noise. We slept good it was quiet. The hosts were very nice and helpful. There is a boat dock across street which we did not use. The hot tub room was nice after a long day of traveling and we did use it. I highly recommend this resort. - mcomeaux

Well maintained and very clean. Beautiful clubhouse. Has a hot tub which looks out onto Hoods Canal. Sites are partially paved and fairly level. We were in a 21', so we had room to maneuver, site next to us (28) had a large motorhome and front jacks had to be extended. The sites are narrow, but wide enough for a narrow slideout and awning. Consider your neighbor when setting up. - Old RVer

The staff burn all day everyday. They burn their trash. The large fires are left unattended. When asked management told them to stop but instead of putting it out they let it continue to burn the rest of the day unattended. Lot spacing is very close and covered/forested. Site surface is gravel featuring a picnic table. - Mav

The park is shaded and beautiful. The recreation center has a dank, old, mildew smell. The few furnishings are very old and decrepit. Although the bathrooms are clean, they are also old and in need of updating. Many sites don't have a sewer connection. There isn't a sewer dump. Instead, departing rigs must find an empty site with a sewer connection and use it to empty tanks. The first one we tried to use backed up and we were stuck with sewage in the hose and no where to dump it. Bottom line - although this resort is in a gorgeous setting it desperately needs a makeover. - LB Rohn

Park host available and friendly. We have stayed here every year since 2005 so have seen improvements. Sites are good size, generally not very level, but have good separation. The showers have been, and continue to be, a disaster. A bit has been done with painting but as they say, you can't put lipstick on a pig. They now accept non-club members but at $40 per night they put themselves in competition with several local parks with nicer facilities on the canal. - fivertug

Old park, but new utilities, fencing etc. Sites on the "beach side" very narrow, but long enough. Mostly pull-thru's. Some large enough for big rigs. Didn't use but peeked into bathroom/shower & old but acceptably clean. $5 site & $100 view of the Hood Canal. Can pick your own oysters from the beach for a fee. Sites in the woods across the street had nice shade, but didn't check them out closely. We would certainly stay here again if the occasion arose. - gs2rt

This is an old RV park. I read that there were new owners as of 2013. The office staff was eager to please. The grounds were not so pleasing. There are great views on the water side of the park, but the sites are very close. We pulled our awning in when our next-door neighbor arrived. We were here with a group, otherwise I wouldn't like to be so close to my neighbors. The club house was adequate. No a/c, old metal folding chairs, etc. Sites on the other side are larger and shaded. Some are pull-thrus on grass. Some are big, some small. Hard to predict what you'll get. Water side had new electric, sewer and water connections. Rental house was shabbier than 2 years ago per members of our group. The best thing about this place is how close to the water you can be if you choose, and how pleasant the staff was. Worse stuff was age and repair of structural things. You can tell that this used to be a really nice facility. Now--not so much. I hope the new owners can fix it up and make it worth $45/nite. They've got an uphill journey but I can see potential here. - LeeL

Was never so let down in a place that the Website lied about. First of all the entire place was so run down, the grounds were unbelievably shabby compared to the others we stayed at around the area. All the sites had very old electrical outlets and the Wi Fi was never reliable, we were for ever talking to a Man who referred to himself as the "Manger" that was walking around behind a Wheel Chair. He explained that the place had only just changed ownership and that there were going to be amazing changes this summer to up grade the grounds. We were upset about the two Pit bulls that were tethered to some old boat moorings they challenged our little dogs every time we walked around the landing. One day one of the dogs broke the rope it was tied to and charged one of our Members, I said something to the Man who proclaimed to be the Manger about this and he informed our group that nothing would be done about it because the Owner of the R.V Park was good friends of the people who owned the two dogs. The other side of this Camp Ground is larger than the waterside but it is in worse shape by far, how can someone who owns a R.V Park charge the rates he does when the place is so beat up and run down. Next to the Office is a very old and run down Motor Home that has a smaller R.V parked along side with a very rusted top, ( it appeared to not run ) this place stank of decay and liqueur. The one trailer next to it was not as bad but it to was clearly beat up also, is this a R.V Park or Mobile Home Park for the Homeless?. We did how ever notice one single smaller older Trailer up front that the person clearly cares enough to place a nice little wooden fence around it. This so called Rest a While R.V Park really needs to not worry so much about renting the place out until the Owner steps up and up grades it. We will not be back and will be informing many other Groups about the poor condition of the place. - kara9
