Very busy park, kid friendly. They have done a great job at remodeling the campground, nice wide spots separated by grass, large pool, 2 jacuzzis, horse shoes, mini golf, volley ball, and of course the lake. No ATT, wifi useless, Verizon data worked well., cable TV. Plenty of room and green space to walk the pups, but no dog run at this time. Would stay here again, but might avoid those busy summer weekends. We camped at Smokiam RV Resort (formerly Soap Lake RV Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 3 nights. At the time of our reservation there was only one spot available. Although we were right next to the highway which had an amazing amount of tractor/trailer traffic, we still feel we had the best site there. The only complaint would be that we wished the resort grounds were fenced all the way so close to the highway. We were just worried our 6 month old puppy might escape and get run over.

The resort was wonderful, the sites very nice and so much to offer! Lots of families, lots of kids. That's what camping is about! We had fun in the lake and baking in the sun with the mud on. Wifi was weak. Only worked some of the time. We will stay here again! We camped at Smokiam RV Resort (formerly Soap Lake RV Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

We made reservations a year in advance they told us we would get a premium site but when we got there the site was all dirt and we could not get the M/H level. When we asked they said they were behind on construction, we also asked for 50 amp site we got a 30. There is no supervision at the pool , kids run wild with out parents any where to be seen. WiFi is spoty at best. Some day this will bw a nice resort. We camped at Smokiam RV Resort (formerly Soap Lake RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

This Park is indeed called "Smokiam RV Resort" now. It is in a good location at the north end of Soap Lake, and right on the lake. The park is in the process of major renovations, making the sites larger to accommodate bigger units, so the number of sites will probably change. There are about 25 TV channels on cable, passable Wi-Fi, but not fast. Be careful not to drive in the "out road" as there are tire shredding strips there. The bird life by the lake can be amazing with avocets, black-neck stilts, killdeer, sand pipers, ducks, geese, doves, two varieties of black birds, and don't be surprised to hear coyotes at night. The highway is quite quiet at night. There is a good sized dog exercise area at the far end of the park. Since we were there early in the year, we can't comment on the many other facilities that you can find on their web site. We would stay here again when travelling through this amazing area.

Ignore all old reviews! This park has improved! This park has changed owners and is now named the Smokiam RV Resort (do not confuse with the city park campground in soap lake. They are not the same. We had stayed here before under the old ownership and just stayed there again a few weeks ago. The new owners have done a ton of improvements. The playground and beach were all redone and are very nice now. There's a new stone patio and big gas fire pit, new very nice cabins, the restrooms were all immaculate, they kept quiet hours at night so we could all sleep. My only critcism is the RV sites still need updating but I understand the new owners are redoing the RV sites in the fall. I can't wait to bring the family back next year.

We visited this RV Resort based on the fact they offer a discount to Passport America members, which we are. This was the first RV park we had visited that took the Passport America card and we were satisfied with the RV Park. The spots are a bit dirty and the spots are smaller. The washroom is not incredibly clean nor dirty and the laundry room leaves some desire. The one huge benefit was the Wi-Fi, this park had a very reliable Wi-Fi network. During our two-day stay, I never once reverted to our MiFi cards. The park itself is starting its winter lock down, so it was under 20% filled when we were there. The location of the park on the lake was a bonus; the morning view was something I enjoyed each morning. The proximity to the highway was negative, large trucks would occasionally roll by and shake our RV even though we were a few rows in. Would I recommend this park? Sure, it is a nice place to visit for a few days. Will we come back? Probably not, unless we were just passing through. We camped at Smokiam RV Resort (formerly Soap Lake RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

I recommend this resort 100%! It is, to use an over-used word, Awesome! It is an experience not to be missed. It is an indescribably beautiful park and lake, not to mention relaxing. At the same time, there are always activities going on in the area if you like to keep busy. There is lots of shade, and the lake is full of minerals, perfect for whatever ails you. The owners and managers are all very friendly, helpful, and their number one concern while you're here is that you're comfortable and happy. The staff keeps the grounds very clean, even on busy weekends or holidays. The beach is plenty large enough for swimming or sun bathing. The only problem, and it's a Small one, is the Wi-Fi isn't very good, But, other people haven't had any trouble with it, so it probably depends what spot you're staying in. It certainly wouldn't keep me away. I couldn't recommend this park highly enough. It's awesome! To quote the Chamber of Commerce: Soap Lake "IS" Washington's Health Resort!

This is a grassy and shaded park, for the most part. The city of Soap Lake have tried to make this a nice, clean friendly park. We camped at Smokiam RV Resort (formerly Soap Lake RV Resort) in a Truck Camper.

Nice park. Lots of kid activities available. Was quiet and well managed. Site provided Wi-Fi was very good. Cell and data service was poor. If you need cell service ask for a site on the East side of the park. We camped at Smokiam RV Resort (formerly Soap Lake RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

Rate shown includes sales & hotel taxes. Nice park on Soap Lake, large trees, fairly level smallish gravel sites, and sufficiently wide, picnic tables, and some grass. We camped with a group who voted to return next year. Clean and tidy thru-out, good signage, and friendly staff. Two clubhouses, plus game room. Definitely a family RV parks although with the Adult Clubhouse there is a kiddos-free area. We would stay here again.

The RV park has potential, but it seemed a bit run down. It did not seem that the full-timers had many rules to follow with regard to neatness around their sites. The lake does not have much recreational value, but it is attractive. We would probably not stay here again unless it were simply a stop over.

This family-friendly park includes recreational activities for children and adults. It has an attractive pool, small clubhouse with TV, and a smattering of playground/sports equipment. There is direct access to a lake whose waters and mud are said to be healing; a good thing since access will include a slog through the mud. Mature trees provide welcoming shade. Sites, many pull-through, are easy to access but fairly close together with limited privacy. Basic utilities are good, Wi-Fi is mostly good, AT&T phone service is poor and spotty, AT&T data service is absent. The rate is based on weekly and Passport America discounts.
