This is a campground right on Soap Lake that is run by the city. There are a bunch of RV sites lakefront, and a few others that aren't plus tent sites. It's nothing fancy. Just a line of sites with a small grassy area and picnic table separating them, but it's an unbeatable deal at $20/night with full hookups. There is a restroom with an indoor shower in men's and women's plus an outdoor shower to rinse off after you swim in the lake. Didn't use the restrooms, but they looked ok although old and a bit shabby. There is a nice park adjacent to the campground with a big playground for the kids and basketball hoop, horseshoe pit etc. and beach access. I didn't go farther, but I believe there are some stores and restaurants within walking distance since the park is right in town. To get to the lake from our site it was a very short walk over some rocks. The lake is full of minerals that supposedly have healing properties and it feels "soapy", therefore the name. Some people also take mud baths but I didn't feel like getting all muddy. Don't know if it's actually helpful, but the lake was nice to swim in and very boyant. It's also very shallow, so you don't have to worry about not being a strong swimmer. We would've stayed another night and gone kayaking, but the winds blew up really strong overnight so we bailed. I'd definitely go back though. We camped at Smokiam Campground in a Truck Camper.

Pretty much a gravel parking lot, but the RV sites back right up to the lake so this makes up for the lack of grass and room between sites. The showers looked like they had not been cleaned in a month or more. The price is great for full hookups this close to the lake. We also have 4 kids so normally that would mean extra fees, but there are none here. We also called the other RV park on the lake and they said we could park in their overflow parking for twice the price as we paid at this RV park. One catch is the sewer connection is right next to the water and electric so our trailer hookup would not reach. There is no shade so it can get very hot, but then again you are so close to the lake you can take a dip. Most people we encountered here spoke Russian which made for an interesting stay. We enjoyed camping here. We camped at Smokiam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Probably my favorite place to camp overall when I come to the Ephrata Soap Lake area. Has a clean restroom and shower, which is really important to me. I usually can get a spot near the restroom. A short walking distance to Soap Lake and my favorite area restaurant, Don's Restaurant. No wireless internet but then I can use one of the libraries in the area for that. Reasonable price. Some noise off the road but not bad in my insulated truck camper. Only weakness is that I prefer to have at least a couple other campers nearby, so one time last October camping by myself I was the only one there, so in that case I probably would go to one of the bigger parks. However, most of the time there are other campers so it is not an issue. Will camp there again soon. We camped at Smokiam Campground in a Truck Camper.

The only negative of this campground is the afternoon wind as it is in the mouth of a canyon. It is clean with updated utilities. It is next to a highway, but the traffic is slow. We felt it is an excellent value and is under utilized. We will stay here again. We camped at Smokiam Campground in a Motorhome.

City campground along lake and highway, good for overnight stop. Price should not be above $15.00 for what is offered. May stay again. We camped at Smokiam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
