23 RV Parks near Toutle, Washington
Jun 2015 - $28.00
This campground is about 18 miles off I-5 so it's not ideal for a quick overnight. But if you're here for a few days to fish or see Mt. St. Helens, this would make a good base. Camp host is on site and available, very friendly and helpful. The park is almost completely under trees (hard for antennas or satellite to work) so you won't see the sky much. All back-ins, full hookups with 50 amps, which is hard to find in this area. Many surrounding parks just have 30 amps. No Verizon cell service at all - seriously, I had no bars on my phone inside the park - so no Internet or Wi-Fi. Also no cable. Internal roads and sites are gravel or hard packed dirt. Sites were large enough for 40' motorhome but if you're larger, call to check if they have the room. The park is clean, seems organized and other than the camp host seems to have mostly weekend campers. It empties out on Sundays. A good base to explore the area, unwind, relax and disconnect. - Flippitti

Really nice wooded setting when so many others nearby are just parking lots. It is very close to many of the Mt St Helens points of interest on the north side of the mountain. Very low key kind of place with friendly caretakers. FYI the Shell station across the street is no longer operating. - bb-justbb

We enjoyed our stay here in our travel trailer. The campground was clean and comfortable, and the maintenance folks do a great job. We will return. - markinoly

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

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

We love it, stayed next to friends in large camper trailer twice this summer. The spaces are huge and new fire pits now. The people are incredible, helpful and friendly. The park is huge and clean with channels of water everywhere leading to the lake. Good parking for the boat trailer, spotlessly clean park, wide roads.
Only thing I would like is if they had something to tie the boat to like a little dock or trees near the boat ramp. We put an Danforth anchor in the grass to hold it but not very secure even with the tips in the grass. - Alice and Les

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

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

By all means, this is not a resort! A small RV Park right off the road to Mt. St. Helens. Not suitable for big rigs. Very narrow road inside. The rate is for a water/electric site which was just big enough to get the Truck Camper in. Leveling was difficult. Some sites are paved, some are gravel. All crammed together under some trees. No privacy. The complimentary WiFi was really poor in the evening but worked ok in the morning. Some road noise as of early morning, otherwise quiet.
We will not come back. - TheSchweitzers

This place has a motel right on Silver Lake. We saw people fishing from their balcony. The lake is beautiful and this place is very close to the Mt. St. Helens area. The campsites are small and crammed together. Our site #9, was very close to the highway so there was constant road noise and the Wi-Fi did not reach our site. If you have a rig larger than 24 feet, you would be limited to a few sites. There is a small grass area near the dock and my family enjoyed swimming and floating around in our boats. We also fished a little bit, which seems to be the primary purpose of this small resort. We wanted to rent boats, but the prices seemed a bit high ($50 for 2 hours for an aluminum rowboat with a 4hp outboard). After the campground filled up, our electrical power seemed to dim a bit, we could not run the A/C with much of anything else. There is no dump station, but one is available in the state park about 1 mile away for $5. Seems like a good place to go if you have a boat and want to fish for bass. - jjwsfgiants

Wow what a difference. We had seen this place a few years back traveling the area. I stopped in and talked to the very friendly staff who gave me a great update on what has happened here. Last year the ownership traded hands -not an auction or closed, and the new guy who runs it has hired some really great folks. They are fixing things up well, managing things, improving the property. We had use of their gas BBQ on the peninsula for dinner and had a great time at the bonfire in the evening with other families and guests. My boy caught fish off the dock - his first real fishing, and was thrilled. So we WILL be back a couple more times this summer. The on line reservation system made it really easy to book our next trip. This place is rustic, but clean, well kept, friendly. Not frills - if I wanted that I would go to the Four Seasons. - Smiling Man

Lots of tall trees and shade which was very nice. Many of the sites are smooshed next to each other. The road is a bit narrow in sections when going to the middle section. Only saw staff a couple times but it was quiet, so that's understandable I guess. Play ground in midst of sites was minimal. Kids didn't like that very much. Playground at day use area was much better. Enjoyed the hiking/biking trails around park. - Hawkdriver

We stayed just one night to go to Mt St Helens. A great spot for that. Was a very quiet park. Had plenty of room. - DaveVB

We dry camped. Beautiful sites in heavily forested area, very tall trees. Dark even in the daytime. Peaceful. Be aware that campfire smoke cannot rise through this dense tree canopy and stays on the ground. This caused us some allergy problems. There are full hookup sites in an area that has been cleared so few trees. - MsLucy

We liked the park. The owner and staff were kind, and the staff did a great job of keeping everything clean and tidy. On Sunday they even had free donuts for anyone that wanted them in the clubhouse, which was a kind touch.
The rules were clear and clearly posted in all of the areas. There was a dog run for the dogs, and a playground for the kids that my son and his friend really enjoyed having to themselves.
In the clubhouse there's rainy day stuff to do, too - a big screen TV with movies to rent, a foosball table, ping pong table, billiards table. There's tetherball and horseshoes out in the back of the clubhouse.
Just an hour away is Johnson's Observatory and an amazing view of Mt. St. Helen's, which we went to see. It was well worth the drive.
We liked the campground, except for the wi-fi. They have several wi-fi networks but not a one of them worked except in the clubhouse. But the bathrooms and showers were clean, the hookups worked, and they were really accommodating with the questions and offering to change our spot if we needed something different.
There are full hookups and partial, and there's a dump near the exit if you're in a partial. We'd stay here again. My son really enjoyed it, and it was his first time "camping" since he was a baby (we were in an RV). - chasmyn

A little confusion with registration because we didn't get a confirmation and then when I called to make sure we still had a site we were told check-in was 3 p.m. we arrived at 3:10 and the office was closed. This would be a great place if you were traveling with kids! The Wi-Fi didn't really work at our site but there is a lovely deck set in the woods off the back if the store/recreation room that we used. Great coffee in the mornings too! And you can borrow fire pits! - Nini03

The staff was friendly and super fun. Wonderful camp for my family of 4 children. There was a kids baseball tournament near by and the hosts jumped right into action so all the kids had a blast! Great atmosphere for families! We will definitely be back! - The Bagner Bunch

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
