We loved staying here. It is quiet, serene and very laid back. There are a lot of seasonal campers who occupy the sites nearest the river and it tends to be busier on the weekends but they are all well cared for and a quiet group. There is only one bathroom for men and another bathroom for women (one small, clean room). There is one shower room and if the shower were sprayed daily with a bleach solution from the floor up 3 feet, it would eliminate the mold. Also there is only one hook so a few more would be very helpful. There is a chair to put your bag on. Also, I really appreciated the rubber matting that allows the water to fall thru. We did not have a reservation but called when we got into town and they were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The site was spacious but only because we didn't have close neighbors otherwise, it would have felt cramped. No sewer for transient campers but there is a dump station. We camped at Ashland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
H. E. Farm Market was a real find. Amish meats & cheeses, jams, mustards, pickles, fresh veggies and baked goods. Went there 3 times!!! We like rail trails but beware of the North Bend Rail Trail that starts in Parkersburg. It is two dirt lanes (usually about 5-6") sometimes within 4-6" of grass. AND THERE IS POISON IVY ALL AROUND. Also make sure you park and turn left to begin the trail, turning right dead ends into thickets.

This park is conveniently located close to Puyallop. It is a tight turn into the park (we have a 36' Fifth wheel) and easy to miss. This is the first park where your slides are literally inches away from the next camper. If we look out our living room slide window, we are looking directly into the living room of our neighbor. We are parked backed up to another camper and our truck is parked in front of our camper. Many RV sales lots have more room then they allow here. There is no where to sit out. Many long timers have put out a carpet and a canopy and have made a small sitting area with plants or pet fences. The surface is small rocks with paved roads throughout the park. They have a small heated pool, a clubhouse with a pool table, a book swap, and very clean bathrooms. The people in the park were friendly. We travel to enjoy the beauty and culture of this country and to be packed in like sardines was just not enjoyable for us. We camped at Majestic Mobile Manor and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Great bicycle paths within 10 miles of campground and lovely paved walking trails in wooded areas throughout the area. Grocery store (Fred Meyers) within 5 miles.

This is a more of a permanent resident park than for travelers. The owners were very accommodating and friendly as was the manager. But the available space(s) was very short (we have a 36' fifth wheel with a deck) and even backed up as far as we could go, without the deck open, we were still sticking out into the road a bit. The trash and recycling (which was next to us) was seriously overflowing and very smelly. The bathrooms were locked (they supplied a key for a deposit) and showers were coin operated. It was not clean and it was very cold - quite open to air flow. Only one of the three showers worked and two out of the three toilets were operational. On the plus side, it was a few miles out of town (Santa Cruz), wooded around the exterior and we were on the creek - so it was a fairly quiet setting (just some road traffic on the other side of the creek). Our hotspot (Verizon) did not work and we could not pick up any OTA TV stations by antenna. Another camper (about 30') came in the first night but left the next day. It is a difficult park to maneuver in with anything longer than about 30'. We camped at Santa Vida RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Cold Spring Tavern off Rte 154 - great place for a winding ride and casual lunch!
