28 RV Parks near Toledo, Washington
Oct 2013 - $13.00
Rate reflects a weeks stay. Can't beat the price for a full hookup with 50 amp. No cable or air TV. The water tastes lousy, but they have RO water in the laundry room for drinking/making coffee. This is right off I-5 so can be noisy. They have a boat ramp and nice area next to the river to walk. Lots of permanent residents, but the ones we met were friendly. We didn't spend anytime in camp really since we were attending to family issues in Ryderwood. Wouldn't stay there otherwise. - KampingKris

Small park. Yes, as the other review stated, the water isn't good: very salty. But there is free filtered water in the laundry room. Our rate reflects a week stay. The park would be a good choice for overnight. It's pretty close to I-5 and is within easy driving distance to Mt. St. Helen. The bad: Highway noise, water quality, sites a bit narrow. The good: New landscaping, a couple of new drive-through sites with 50 amp, nice laundry facility (but only one washer: it's new though), basically quiet. The long term residents are friendly. Nice tent sites by the river. We would stay again. - KampingKris

The water was so bad it made my dog sick. It tasted like sewer water would taste. The smell of backed up septic tank was all the time. it was hard to breathe and the I think it was backing up into the water system. Dogs ran wild the manager was yelling all the time like a crazy man when someone asked about the poor water. His only comment was if you don't like it move or go some place else. The grounds was kept nice and mowed but that is all the good that is to be said about this place. - The camperman

This park is now on a reservation system which makes checking in a real headache. You can still use the iron ranger but you also are required to use the 'phone' at the entrance and check in again with the reservation 'service' even if you don't have a reservation. These people were completely ridiculous do deal with. When I was here for two days, there were only three campers in the entire campground. I love this park but may not return because of the unnecessary hassle checking in. - mockturtle

Price reflects senior pass. If you don't need hookups or sewer dump and you like quiet forest glades, this is your park! Lovely park, well maintained. Some of the sites are a little tricky and not very level but there were a few good-sized rigs there. Mostly tent campers. Since it's not on the water, no jet skis or boat noise. Nice hiking trails. Definitely will return. - mockturtle

We stayed here for an overnight stop on our way from Seattle to Bend. Several sites were available on Friday night at 9PM. There was a ranger patrolling during our arrival which was nice to see at such a small park. Really liked the dense tree cover, the day use area seemed nice and overall this seemed to be a great no-reservation park for a quick getaway or stop-over. - pokeyt

Convenience store is located on grounds and a nice restaurant, Spiffy's, is located just 1/4 mile away. The draw back here is it floods in the winter months including when I was here. The south half of the rv park goes under water and there are massive standing puddles in most of the sites when it rains, and remember, this is Washington. The site host is friendly and doing what he can to make this a nice campground. But more work is needed to keep it dry. - ridgerunner

It is an interesting place. It is on the hill overlooking the lake, but the lake is across the highway. I did watch the fellow fishermen rescue some guys who fell in the lake, the aid car came and everything. It created a unique memory. I will come back here to check out more as the season continues. - Smiling Man

The nicest thing about comming here was the view of the lake, no lake front but you are on a knoll with a wonderful view. I have been told that the fireworks on the 4th of July is a wonderful site here also. We did not stay with children and I am glad we didn't. The music from the bar and restaurant would have kept them up as it did me and my husband. I would come back to eat here, the food was good but I wouldn't camp here again. Not relaxing, too noisy and too busy at the bar. - chellepoo

We stayed three weeks. No problem with having our cat with us. Lots of long-term people but 'H' does a great job encouraging flowers and garden patches throughout. I very much enjoyed the neighbors' garden next door, as well as the view of the lake, which must be spectacular in the spring. Showers and bathroom didn't appear to have been tended to the entire time we were there. :( - elfarran

We enjoyed this RV park from the moment we got there. From inside our 5th wheel, we saw bald eagles and an osprey fishing in Silver Lake! The best view spaces are kept for short term campers. The management and the long term residents were friendly and very helpful with our travel/weather/dining out questions. We loved it. - Marlane

Lovely view of Silver Lake from campsite on top of hill. Bathrooms are located at the bottom of steep driveway. Lots of kids; children at play sign. My biggest complaint is lack of cable TV as advertised. The manager said they had a limited number of cable boxes and those are distributed to permanent park residents. - bspe

We stayed 3 nights in a 42' fifth wheel. The sites are big rig friendly, easy to get into & level. The campground is attractively landscaped & well maintained. Did not use the washrooms but looked in. They were clean. Did not see the showers. There is very small fenced dog area & dogs are made welcome through out the park. There is an outside dog wash! The river walk is approximately 1/2 mile long & has exercise stations along the way. We used the laundry facilities, not many but clean & fairly priced. We did hear the trains. They are frequent. We did not notice the traffic sounds. Employees say some sites have traffic noise others have train noise. It didn't keep us awake at night. It did not interrupt conversation. - Miss Betty

This park is 8 years old and one of the nicest we have stayed in. There is over two miles of paved roads for bike riding. They also have .5 mile gravel trail to the river with "entertainment" along the way , rope swings, climbing bars, regular swings and several other things that I don't know what they are called. There are many amenities for families, pool, hot tub, sauna, dog wash, big field house for basketball, disc golf, outdoor movie house, community fire rings and many sites had in ground fire rings. However there is a big drawback and why we will not return. It is located between I-5, so there is always road noise when you are outside your rig, and train tracks. The train tracks were the killer for us as there are two sets of tracks and more often than not trains would pass each other right as they passed the park and made the ground and rig shake. The northbound trains always blew their whistles just as they passed our site and the trains seemed to pass during the day every half hour and at night about an hour to an hour and a half--so way too many trains for us! If you were outside when they passed you had to stop talking because no one could hear you. We talked to several other folks who were camping (we were there over Labor Day weekend so the place was surprisingly full) and if you are parked closer to the clubhouse the train whistles are not heard so much but then you are above I-5 so really have road noise as the sound goes up. We had a house about two blocks from a train track but there were only about three trains a day/night and only occasionally did the house shake when a really heavy train went by so we figured the trains wouldn't bother us--WRONG!
All the staff were very pleasant and we had a huge site -1oo ft long with our front in the trees and our back in the sun. The kids we saw didn't seem to notice the trains or traffic but it was not for us. The restrooms are individual like a house with shower, sink and toilet in one. - clarksark

I take my Grandboys camping here every August for 4 years now. They like the pool, riding their bikes, and the play areas.
The biggest thing is to get use to the freeway noise and the noise from the train on the other side of the park. After the first night I was able to sleep through the noise.
I was very unhappy with the $20.00 fee for visitors. My two children live close by and I like to have a night where they come and we all have dinner together. It didn't happen because that fee is too steep. ☹️
The camping fee is also more than most places I stay. - swhitney9

Large sites with lots of room. Very friendly hosts. Not much for facilities as the only restrooms/showers were at the very far side of the park. The WiFi was almost non existent as it was very weak if you could even get on it. There was not really a clear view of the lake as the park sits on a series of canals heavily covered in Lilly pads. - Quality Time

Great place to stay while visiting Mt St Helens. Newer facility with nice sites, but restroom facilities are limited and far away from most sites if you need to use them.
Landscaping is super and lends to a nice place to sit and enjoy the great surroundings. - grandflic

This was our first time staying here and we liked the park so much we stayed an extra night. It is in a beautiful location with lots of grass and trees and canals and ponds running through the park. It is VERY well maintained and the showers/bathrooms were spotless. The staff were helpful and friendly. Some of the spots are not as level as others, but they are very spacious and the interior roads were easy to navigate. The park is off the main road to Mt. Saint Helens, so it is convenient as a base for visits up the mountain. It is also quiet at night as it is a rural area. Would absolutely stay here again. - gtogrl

My stay here has been great. Staff is helpful and agreeable. Close to river fishing. Very quiet, occassional train in the distance. Lot of monthly renters, all friendly. Its the overnite campers that are usually rude and insensitive to others and look down on people who chose or simply have to live in a motorhome. There is a stigma in america that comfortable/wealthy folks have adopted, where anyone living in an rv is doing so in order to avoid the law, cook meth, or drink uncontrollably! I have found that to be a rediculous myth. Very kind, down to earth people are living this life for various reasons including saving money for a house. - Cel

This is a small park, and by no means a resort. Friendly staff and residents. Mostly long term residents, think they have 2 overnight pull through sites. Interior gravel roads, some pot holes. We stayed 4 nights. No cable, but no problems with water, sewer or electric. Level site. Easy on off of I-5. Near Mt. St.Helen's, but a bit of a drive to Mt. Rainier. If you mind a mostly long term residence park, then this park is not for you. We felt safe and would return if in the area again. - Vicki K

We camped here for a couple days and decided to stay for a couple weeks. The weekly rate was cheaper then daily. We had to move from an overnight spot to longer term which was inconvenient. The Rv park in mostly long term residents. Manager was very nice and the tenants were nice as well. It's a little noisy with road noise and close to a railroad crossing. No cable or internet. Good place to stop for a few days. We would stop here again. - Dreamer53

Horrible experience. The "owner(s)" started drinking at around 10am. Appeared to be family owned because our complaints were met with hostility. Everyone in our group, and everyone in the park for that matter witnessed the family who owned the park do nothing but sit around a picnic table and drink in front of the store they were attempting to run. The owners were drunk and rude. One of them called a group of our children a name that I won't repeat in a review. They embarrassed themselves and their park.
The boat exhaust gave everyone a headache. The bathrooms/showers were horrid. Flies and filth everywhere. Human feces on a wall and the floor in the men's room. The "store" was shabby and over priced. The RV hookup was an electrocution waiting to happen.
We left early cutting our stay short. We will never stay there again. And I will advise friends and family to avoid. Avoid like the plague! - The Jake

First, let me say that there were some very negative comments in past years; however, the park has changed owners and they are doing a wonderful job. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The park is a very popular weekend getaway for families, so weekends are busy. Some sites are filled by locals who leave there units here, but there are a few transient sites. Their spot on the lake is nice and there is a shallow area for swimming. We had a very nice time kayaking the lake. There is also a boat ramp so many weekenders also bring their boat. You are about an hour from Mt. St. Helen's. We were told cable TV was extra, but they didn't know how much? Verizon cell and data was weak, but did function. The site was close but adequate. The free Wi-Fii worked well, but did drop out occasionally. - Kokomo

We arrived on a hot, muggy July Saturday and found a beautiful lake, clean bathrooms and about 3 times the number of people and vehicles that there should be for such a small place. The long term people who park there and use their campers as vacations homes have all of the good spots with shade, trees, grass, landscaping, best views, etc. The casual, short term campers get the crowded graveled spots out in the unfiltered sun. This is very uncomfortable after a few summer hours of baking. We left earlier than planned. This is also a day-use spot because of the lake and water sports. This adds to the crowding, vehicles, noise, etc. They are definitely squeezing every dime out of the place that they can to the discomfort of some of the campers. They have a cute little store that sells ice cream cones as well as other food and general items. If you have a smaller camper and water toys or like to fish, this may be your place. - ShariPDX

Harry Gardner Park is a newly minted (last summer) county park, and is a great jumping off point for Mt. St. Helens. The park, and indeed the entire valley, was covered with volcanic mud in 1980, and the park reopened just last summer. The park is pretty much just a wide, grassy spot next to the Toutle River and a highway, with campsites and a picnic shelter. The RV sites have water and 20/30/50A power. There is fantastic water pressure. A dump station is right next to the campsites, and there are pit toilets. No showers. The RV sites are all back in, and most of the RV sites are big enough for big rigs. The tent sites are generally not appropriate for RV's at all. All of the RV sites are in full sun, and are mostly level. The park doesn't take reservations (yet), but there was no need. On a weekend in early May, there was us, the camp host, one other family in a trailer, and a guy with a tent. The two ADA sites are paved. All of the other sites are grass. We took advantage of the empty campground and used one of the ADA sites. It was a relief from all the mud we've been camping in lately. There isn't a lot to do in the area. A playground for the kids. Walking along the river was nice. A group of local kids had hung a rope swing over the river on a bridge girder. And, of course, the location 40 miles from Mt. St. Helens, which is both interesting and beautiful. The campground is a bit close to the highway. Logging trucks come by all day long. At night there's less traffic, and it's nice to hear the tree frogs. The grounds are a bit unkempt. The landscaping is grass and dandelions, and both could use a mow. I didn't look at the pit toilets, but I heard someone from the other group shouting back to one of the kids to bring toilet paper. Satellite TV should work fine. OTA TV, probably not. My AT&T service was good with the WeBoost, passable without. Verizon was bad no matter what. - AnnP

This is a first come first serve campground with a self pay station at the front gate however they hope to have their website up by May 1st and be able to take reservations. Very clean park, 14 RV sites with 50 amp electric & water and 11 tent sites with no services. There is a dump station available and pit toilets. This is a very quiet location along the Toutle River with several nice walking trails. There was only 2 other campers in the park and the host was not arriving for a few more weeks. - Ruffin It

What a find! This county park campground was destroyed during the Mt St Helen eruption in 1980 and was never rebuilt until this year. This little gem of a campground is right on the South Toutle (tootle) River. We were there on a weekend and there were only 3 RVs (including us) and a tent camper. There are 11 RV sites with 30amp electric and water and 11 tent sites with no services. There is a dump station available and pit toilets. No shower facilities. We walked along the river bank and took in the beautiful scenery. The St Helens visitor center was 6 miles west of here and the observation deck was 50 miles east. If you are into cycling this is one mother of a ride to the observation center! Not a single stop light or stop sign on smooth pavement!
Only ding for this CG is that we had zero Verizon wifi, but were able to send texts. We planned on staying a week but left after the weekend due to lack of connectivity (for work).
There is a camphost on site but we never saw them. Place could have used a mowing. Sites are nicely spaced and was super quiet!
Not really much to do here other than sit outside and enjoy nature and take a drive out to St Helens. - JeffDeb
