Trout Lake Washington Campgrounds
11 RV Parks near Trout Lake, Washington
Sep 2011 - $15.00
Great Forest Service CG located about 7 miles out of Trout Lake via SR 141 and FR 24 (paved all the way). Sites are generally well separated with dirt/gravel pads. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Water spigots are located throughout the campground. A dump station can be found at the city park in Trout Lake. Campground is generally open from mid May through mid September. CG is close to Goose Lake (about 6 miles) and Forlorn Lakes for those who like fishing. Note that Goose Lake allows electric boat motors and has a boat launch while Forlorn Lakes is muscle power only and no launch site. The campground doesn't experience heavy usage except during the huckleberry season and during the early part of the fishing season. It can, however, be busy during any weekend so reservations for a weekend might be advisable. Peterson Prairie is near the Ice Caves and Natural Bridges. Both were formed when Mount Adams last erupted and are worth checking out. If you decide to explore the Ice Cave, wear warm clothing and adequate foot gear -- it's cold and slippery down there! - Bruce and Sue

The camp hosts were constantly on the move asking folks how their stay was going as well as making sure the park was spotless. The water was very soft and had good pressure. The power never went out and was always at 110V even though the park was full and the weather was a bit warm (80-85) during the day. So AC's were running. No cell service (A good thing in my book) as there are much better thing to do in this area than always looking down. But there is a small satellite based hot spot at the office to check emails. The views of Mt. Adams from the RV park was simply awesome. Our site was one of the tighter ones, But was still fine for our 36Ft. Class A Motor Home. We highly recommend Elk Meadows RV park. - super7pilot

Long but somewhat narrow sites. Shrubs/trees between sites afforded privacy. Plenty of room to manuver your vehicle/ RV. Wonderful views of Mt. Adams. Lots to do at park and in the area. Will definitely go back. - CM WA

This is a fantastic park. It is a very woodsy setting with the feeling of privacy between campsites. The view sites are just that--views of the meadows and Mt. Adams. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. This is a destination park rather than an overnight stop. They have a great little 1/2 mile nature walk and a great playground BBQ area. We now call this park our version of a spa. It was really relaxing and very inviting. We plan to be back often. - SAU51

The campground is quite nice We stayed in site 20 and had a wonderful experience. The blacktop roads are easy to maneuver and keep the dust down. There is plenty of grass between the well spaced sites. The laundry room is clean with large machines and reasonable prices. We would definitely stay here again. - Melissa Koppenhaver

Very small and cramped; barely enough room to maneuver around one way streets. FHU pull through and back in sites; electric good and water quality good. To get to our site I had to pull in front of other sites and then back down the road to park at our site. No clubhouse or pool, or playground. Has tent area. Charge for shower use; Wifi & cable TV. Some sites have grass but most have large rocks, which are hard on the feet. Large lot down the hill to walk the dogs but no place to let them loose. Trail down to the river. Well maintained & clean; friendly staff. Only place to walk was on sidewalk toward Bingen. - Kerch Family

Nice compact, well maintained RV park. Some site are grass some have washed stone. The closer to the office the better the wifi. Good Verizon and T-Mobile signal. Good gas station right at entrance of park for motorhomes. Park has a large grass dog area. It is not fenced but there are only two openings one at each end. NOTE: Do not use Hood Bridge, or if you do, turn in your mirrors, very narrow white knuckle bridge. Use the bridges East or West. Tunnels both ways are doable, but some you may have to take toward the center. My Garmin gps showed lower tunnel height than how they really were. In general the higher the site number the less train noise. Did not find it bothersome. We were in 29 grass site, and parking for toad. Good FHU's mid site. Did see some using a board to level one side. Laundry facilities are good. Camp hosts very nice, easy to work with. Back in sites are angled and easy enough. Some sites have satellite access, if this is important call ahead. Would defiantly stay here again. - wtravlr1

Spots are level and spacious. It was very nice for a fair grounds.
The only thing I didn't like was the lack of a dump station. - Impkitti

This is a clean park with occasional distant train noise. Some events can also be noisy.
Sites are near-level unshaded grass. Voltage is good.
WiFi is strong. I measured 868.5 kB/s down.
Verizon LTE works well.
TV: ABC CBS FOX PBS. VHF weather radio is very weak.
The manager is friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately, camping is only allowed when some event is held, so it's best to call ahead well in advance. - wjzcbn

This is basically large open fields with various pedestals with the lights for the parking area of the fields on them that also have power boxes with outlets for 20 and 30amp plugs. There's not too many of 30amp outlets available, so pick a spot near a pole that hasn't got too many people already hooked to it. Water spigots are available, but no sewer hookups, but there is a dump station on site. Best to call ahead, as the sites are not always open, depending on weather the fields may be too wet to allow vehicles in to without sinking. Bathrooms are very clean and well built and coin operated, but very generous with the amount of time you get per quarter. All proceeds from the showers goes to help support the local 4-H Club in the Odell/HoodRiver area and hot water is plentiful. One of the funnest times to visit is if you're passing through the area and happen to be able to hit it during the Blossom Festival in April, if you're lucky you might run across a group of classic Winnebago motorhome owners who hold their "Hoodstock Jamboree" there each year :). - The Redneck Express

We found this little jewel on the southeast side of Mt. St. Helens about 24 miles north of Carson, Washington. The campsite we had (#25) was perfect right next to the Wind River. We stayed here for four days over a completely full weekend and couldn't ask for a better experience. I have stayed in a lot of National Campgrounds and rarely even bother to rate them, but this place was the cleanest best kept we have ever seen. The pit toilets were always full of paper and hand sanitizer and they even went so far as blowing pine needles off the road. The campsites have a sand tent site as well as a paved back in where we were. Water is by way of an old hand pump well but it tastes very good. There is no phone signals for miles from here.
I rate this an 8 because I could never give a higher rating to a place with no hook-ups. But as far as boon docking, you won't do better than this place. The hosts were very friendly (locals) and knowledgeable about the local area and hiking trails including several of the nearby waterfalls.
The fee is half price if you have the Golden Age pass. - kcjflea

The campground is near the scenic Lower Falls of the Lewis River. The toilets are pit composting toilets. There is no cell service, not for many miles. The road south of the campground is rough. Mostly it is asphalt with frequent large dips to bang your hitch on, and near the campground it is gravel with some rugged/steep spots. - Dan C

We have been coming to this campground for over 20yrs. The last 8 or 9yrs things have changed. The compost toilets are horrendous and this year especially were absolutely unbearable. We were told that they are not being used as compost toilet anymore because of funding and that is such a sad problem because someone with lung problems can not go in there. It's literally so bad you can't breathe. Also this year the mouse issue was unreal. We had so many mice everywhere. We had our food locked up and they still got in our camper. When I say problem..I don't mean a little.... We put a bucket out with a stick so we could relocate them away from our camp area and in 2 days caught MORE than 50 mice :( and that was just in 1 site...we had 4 sites. The little store near by said it's a huge problem this year. Something needs to be done because our neighboring campers had mice climbing on them in their beds when they were sleeping and ended up awake the entire night. It's made us rethink coming back next year if things are the same. Lastly, up until about 5yrs ago it was always so peaceful there.... now on the weekends people flock there and we've seen drunk young people try and jump across the top of the falls and fall in and have to hold on to the logs so we could help them get out so they didn't go over the falls. We've seen people bring full size bbq out onto the top of the falls and cook. It really sucks what social media and tv has done by advertising the "Hidden gems of Washington" it ruins really special places. - Angie Hemenway

Extremely beautiful RV campground located amongst 124' fir trees. All sites were level, paved and large with table and firepits. There were 3 waterfalls located on easy 5 mile RT hike. I can't wait to get back. However, this campground does not accept reservations so it's first come first served and this is a major problem as the campground is located 15 miles up US Forest Road 90 and you won't know until you get there whether there is a site available. During the 3 days I was there, I saw many RVs turning around and heading back down the mountain as all sites were gone. There are no signs at the turnoff indicating the availability of sites and 30 miles RT drive is a long way to go...especially in the dark. Other than that it's a great park. - olygene

This is a very small, nice campground 3 miles up the hill from the Columbia River. It is rustic and surrounded by woods with many shaded spots. It is owned and managed by a young couple who go out of their way to make sure that all is OK. We will definitely stay here again. - GilesScott

Loved this little park. The area is gorgeous and the park grounds are well maintained with beautiful forest and shrubbery. I can't say enough about how nice the young couple are that run it. It is a true family operation with their parents and kids helping out. The check in was easy and the owners were always there to lend a hand if needed. I hope we get back there again. - Di4040

We came to this park looking for a camping atmosphere with 30amp and H2O connections. Immediately upon arrival, I knew I found a little piece of heaven. The staff made my family and I feel like honored guests, although we arrived unannounced/no reservation. We were given a map of available sites to chose from with no pressure whatsoever. Beautiful, well maintained back-in sites with forested privacy throughout. A most welcome change after abandoning a crowded, truck stop-like park in Cascade Locks. We will return to this park again for sure. - David Heather

Well, this is a nice little park with one big caveat, which is the railroad crossing on the river access road, and one small caveat, which is the lack of even a dump station. Traveling solo and male, I was able to stretch my tanks, but other should take note.
I spent 12 nights in the site nearest the railroad crossing and survived. I sort of like being near trains, but the horns are very loud. Nonetheless, I grew accustomed to it, and wasn't awakened more than once or twice. But that's me, everybody responds differently.
The park has two major advantages. One is actually the railroad crossing... because so many people dislike trains, it's possible to get a space on a summer weekend without booking far in advance. I was able to book summer weekends 3-4 weeks ahead. The other advantage is that it's one of the few parks that has Columbia River access, a nice little picnic area that's only a short walk away.
On an earlier 2-night visit, I arrived to find my site occupied. Just a trailer, no tow vehicle, hooked up but nobody around. The host was very helpful, and they moved me to a "reserve" site that they kept open for such things. So thumbs-up to the staff for handling it well. - bobk3d

This park is between the train tracks and the freeway, close on each side, and the trains run day and night, but I slept right through them. There is very little shrubbery and usually one tree between sites, so there is no privacy between neighbors other than the block your RV provides. There is very little grass - the ground cover is mostly pine cones and pine needles. My husband and his dog both got ticks here, so check yourselves and your pets carefully. The bathrooms were clean and stocked, and the camp host and the state rangers patrol regularly, which I liked. Hood River is only about 10 miles away, so windsurfers and kiteboarders as well as families, seemed well represented in the campground. This served the purpose for this late-planned trip, but next year we'll plan earlier and stay at a different park. - FrenchDogs

The only reason I gave this a 3 star rating was due to the trains that run directly in back of the park at all hours. You also get road noise from very busy highway. The park itself is very well kept and you do get power. The camp host was very friendly and did forewarn us about the train. If it wasn't for the train blowing it's whistle every time it goes by, you might get used to the train noise. We planned on staying here 3 nights but only stayed 2 and forfeited our third night's stay. I would not stay here again. - travelerofusa

A small Oregon State Park right off the Freeway. Access is difficult, if going East. It is on the West side with no on/off exits. One must drive a few miles to get East freeway access - not a big deal. The park is heavily treed with lots of grass. The trees hang over the interior roads and will scrape the top of large rigs. Otherwise it is well maintained. Staff is friendly and extremely helpful. The roads and sites are asphalt. Access is tight, but doable with care. There is a overflow parking area for trailers, boats, etc. There are several full hookup sites, all are back in. Utilities all worked well. No cable, no WIFI, ATT and Verizon good signal Personal WIFI worked well without booster. Down side is it is between the freeway and train tracks. It is very noisy, so would not stay their again. - Pacatrader

Absolutely NO quiet! Between the freeway noise and the railroad, you could hardly hear yourself think! Never, never again! The campsites themselves are not bad. There is very little privacy between the sites - the entire area is very open. The best sites are down along with water. You have a little less traffic noise and if you don't mind trains, you have a chance. The staff was very helpful. The area was kept clean and they were attempting to keep the grounds green by watering. There is ice on site which was nice since getting anywhere from the campground is a challenge. Keep in mind that the park can only be accessed from I-84 westbound and is located off the rest area. That means going eastbound you have to go three miles past the campground, use exit 76 and go under the freeway and head west back on I-84 before you arrive. Too bad there are no road signs telling you this. You do get a sign eastbound telling you to use exit 76, but then there was nothing. Found ourselves on top of a cliff with a 40 foot trailer thinking this was the way - there were no road signs!!! Just not my favorite site...sorry! - Barney2017

Beautiful state park on the Columbia River. There is no river access from the park, but there is plenty of access in the area. Close to fun and trendy Hood River, lots of water activities, wineries and beautiful scenery. the only drawback is the closeness to I-84 so there's quite a bit of highway noise. - RV Wizards

Best thing about this park is quiet which is why we chose it. Other parks are too close to busy highway and train tracks. There are about 40 sites with water hookups but no electric. Showers and bathrooms are old and run down but I suppose clean enough - they were cleaned daily. Best for smaller rigs but there are a few that can accommodate larger rigs. Pads are small but some are open enough that you can hang over the pad if needed. There was a 40 footer when we were there. Beautiful Hood River runs through it. There is a geocache at the park if you participate in geocaching. Also picked fresh wild blackberries while there. We stayed 4 days and I would stay again. - utchaps

This Hood River County park is located on 36 acres along the South bank of the Hood River. The campground is close to town, yet quiet (no trains). The sites are kind of spread around with two sections, one mostly for RV's and the other for tent campers. Sites are available on a first come first serve basis with no reservations. We stayed in site E which had a wonderful view and sound of the roaring Hood River below. There is playground equipment, a picnic shelter, tables, and fishing. RVs up to 30' are allowed. The showers and bathrooms were in terrible condition and we didn't use them. Also be aware that the two electrical outlets next to sites M and N were not working at the time we stayed and didn't look like they had worked in a long time, however there is plenty of water at almost all the sites. - josh970506
