22 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

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

This is an extremely nice RV park. The sites are distributed over a very large area with a network of canals, so there is a lot of green space and water between sections of sites. The sites are quite long and wide, not paved but gravel. As others have said, the lake is nearby but not visible and only accessible by a long paddle around the canals that border the lake. There are kayaks for rent in the park and the paddle out to the lake is quite nice. The wifi is excellent if you are parked near one of the antennas, poor when not near an antenna. We had to move from our assigned site to a new one because the wifi was unusable at our first site. They have a complex system of site classifications, but we found a less-expensive "standard" site that was nicer than the "premium" site we were first given. The park is quiet and beautifully landscaped. The nearest full-service grocery store is in Castle Rock, about 15 minutes away. Mt. St. Helens was about an hour, but so worth the visit. - MrSunshine

We have a favorite site that faces the west and the lake...it is gorgeous here and we have been coming up here for several years. Besides the peaceful and restful experience here...you are only about 35 miles from the Mt. St. Helens Observatory...a sight not to be missed. Sites are wide and well tended, as is the entire park. A good place to stay.... - btsweetbaby

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice, well kept grounds. An expansive park-like setting with many lakeside sites. Family oriented. Kayaking and fishing seemed popular.
My gravel site was mostly flat but sloped downward in the back.
As a result, I chose to unhook and park the trailer closer to the road to make leveling easier. I still had room to park my truck in front at an angle. The site was quiet.
Wifi was good for email and light web surfing. The Verizon signal was very slow and weak, often dropping calls, and my MiFi could not connect at all.
Asphalt interior roads seem new. Lots of tall trees. Sites are separated by landscaped hummocks, but they provide little privacy.
They have limited supplies and few snacks at the office store. They provided a coupon for one free coffee at their store, but I didnt use it.
I stayed here to visit Mount Saint Helens (MSH). The cg is about 10-15 minutes from I-5 on Hwy 504 towards MSH. The cg is a good destination spot, and quite worthy of consideration if you will be visiting MSH. I would stay here again. - phann

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 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

This park is a small park on a hill overlooking a beautiful lake with a boat house and fishing dock. Beautiful sunset and clear sky to see a billion stars. It does have a two lane road in front and at the bottom of the hill but very little night time traffic. We had a picnic table and friendly neighbors. I would of liked to stayed another day to explore, but we needed to leave the next morning. Thanks Mt St Helens RV resort! I logged you in my "book" as my favorite place of all, and we stayed 16 places in 25 days. - it was getting late

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

Park has very dirty, unlevel sites. The owner permitted 40 teenagers on a 2-tent site, to have a noisy overnight party. Resulted in constant vehicle noise, and smells of marijuana permeating the park. Hundreds of beer empties and other possible illegal activities. We informed the police when we got home. - tompte

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 stayed here for 3 nights in the RV loop in site T8. The sites are a tad tight, but in good light, with pretty surroundings and a trail nearby. This was a great base-point for local activities, such as the Mt. St. Helens visitor centers, Silver Lake and more. The trail around the visitor center was very nice. We would definitely stay here again. - JNMC

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

This particular KOA really caters to families. You can tell the owners really like their jobs and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. We had a slight mix-up in our reservations (we had a group) and instead of getting all flustered, we just worked together to find the problem. The names were just mixed up. This park is on a terraced lot, some spots are tight, others are not. They had a scavenger hunt for the small kids as well as s'mores by the playground. We will definitely be back to stay. - robbynoh

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

Oh wow! We reserved this place for the weekend Friday-Sunday. Friday night we set up camp and left first thing Saturday morning, without a word to the owners. It seems people don't camp here, they live here! I believe we were the only "campers" - NFLJenn
