We loved this campground. Quite small with only one loop which was perfect for the kids. Beautiful, lush trails that loop around the lake and into the nearby city park trail system. The lake is great for fishing in a non combustible engine boat or kayak. The swimming area is separate from the campground with a small park, bathrooms and picnic area. Campsites vary in size - pads are smaller and not good for over 30 foot trailers. Great level tent pads. Make reservations ahead of time and get a large lakeside site! - lewlindafoerster

Beautiful state park with excellent hiking trails and lush, shady sites. Not for big rigs. There were a few 30' or larger RVs but most of the parking pads [lined with logs] are narrow but the sites are roomy and quite private. Gorgeous, well kept grounds and the lake is for non-motorized watercraft only, so quiet prevails. Excellent Verizon signal. Will definitely visit again. - mockturtle

Easy to get in/out of. Sites all seem to be the same size with transient sites being pull-thru. Roads and sites are crushed stone and level. Utilities worked well and Wifi worked fine. Good Verizon signal. The highway sound didn't bother us too much because it was just this constant background noise. The train whistles, however, at any time of day or night were frighteningly loud. - cwier

This is an average camping place. It's good enough to go to for an area park. There are gravel roads and sites with no picnic table. We stayed 4 days and heard the train once a day in the afternoon. They no longer take "Good Sam". This place was full the whole time we were here. The WiFi was on and off at best. - plp1280

We stayed here for a month, thus the $17 cost. Price for a month was $480, includes electricity. The park is all gravel, and about 75% full of seasonal and long-term residents. Residents in the park are required to keep their sites clean. You can wash your car and RV here without a fee. Pull through and back in sites with room to park your second vehicle along side or in front, depending on length of RV. Sewer hookups are located at the extreme rear of the site and may require multiple lengths of hose to reach the inlet. Currently, you check in at the motel office; though that could change as there's talk of a new office building to be located within the park itself. There's a gas station, restaurant, and coffee kiosk in front. Yes, the trains go through, about 3-4 times a day, no set schedule, and the tracks are very close. - DiplomatTraveler

Lovely small, rural fishing venue. Maintained by hosts and the community this is a gem. Sites are level. Restrooms are immaculate and the fish cleaning and dumpstation are well designed. This little park is located adjacent to a stocked Lake and the Chehalis river. Trout in the lake, salmon in the river. Bring a pole. - Janet H

A GEM is correct. Older reviews stated no wifi, but now there is. Very long and beautiful asphalt trail around the lake. The campground was built with handicap in mind, and they did a great job. Asphalt RV space we had (R 10) was not real level, but we used all of our blocks on the back tires of our Class C and got it up enough to function. Water and 30 amp hookup was good. The whole park is VERY QUIET and we loved it. If there had been sewer and cable, we would never leave! - Sharon and Gary

A real "GEM" Friendly Staff, Nice surroundings. Some sites have view of Lake. Lots of grass. Walking trail around lake. Close to Challis River. Fishing Docks on both lake and river. Verizon OK. No wifi or cable. Water and Elect. Will be back. - silverado

This is a good park. Roads and sites are gravel/dirt but the park is small enough that it is not dirty or dusty. Some sites larger than others. Some have all shade, some partial and some pretty much full sun. Our site was plenty large enough for our 40MH and the tow and prett level. Very nice grassy area right out our door. The roads can be a little tight, but we were able to get in without touching any bushes. Good price for a full hook up site as well. There is no cable or over the air TV nor could we get satellite, but we could stream movies without ATT hot spot. The pub/smokehouse is where you check in . They have a good selection of micro brews on draught, and the Brisket dip sandwich is not to be missed! They also allow dogs inside and on the back deck. I would give the park another star, but the road noise from 101 is a little loud. It quiets down at night. Not alot for kids to do here. There is a 1/2 mile hiking trail right from the park which makes for a good place to walk a dog, or a human. There is also good road cycling on North River Road. Don't hesitate to stay here if you are in the area. - Jake21

Very unique location. Clean facilities, roomy sites. A great get away. Patience when driving in the loop. 42ft, including tow, fit fine. The front has the larger pull through sites. Probably easiest for first timers to park at the pub, walk back to the office, and visit your site. It is not far. - Dp26

A Very Nice, spacious park in a quiet woodland setting. - Momads
Aug 2014 - $27.00
Rate reflects price for a weekend visit (not including the online reservation fee). It's a small park in a slightly out-of-the-way place, but still proved very popular. The day use area has a mile or two of hiking trails, along with picnic areas. Campground was fully booked when we visited, with several tents and two or three cars parked at each site. Fortunately a state park ranger made a couple rounds in the evening, along with volunteer hosts who were very attentive. A handful of utility sites are on a loop by the entrance, but the most secluded sites are in the back of the park. Creek runs by many of the sites. However you are not allowed to set up tents on the grassy banks. Facilities were disappointing, even by state park standards. The bathhouse seems to be original to the park, and was very dirty and smelly. The coin-operated shower in the men's room doesn't drain properly, causing water to pool by the toilets and sinks. - RVNed

This campground was very busy and noisy. I'm sure during the off season it would be a great place to stay. The utility sites are very close together and dusty. We were in site #2 and had 3 trees next to us which gave us more room than some of the other sites. There are only 6 utility sites and the rest are standard. The dump station is located just outside the park going north. This is a first come first serve park and if you get here by 2pm midweek you shouldn't have a problem getting in. There are 2 restrooms and 1 shower along with a very small store which carries ice and dry goods like soap and sponges, they do not stock food. We would stay here again as an overnighter. - jannie5

This was our 3rd stay here. Unfortunately for the RV park, a busy trucking yard is located directly behind the park and the noise was horrible with big rig trucks driving by on a gravel road for all hours. One went by at 3:30am. This business runs from early morning thru evening. On Saturday morning some kind of grading truck went by at 7:00 am. Since there are no other facilities at this park, this noise annoyance has made it extremely over priced. We liked Elma until this trip but we will never return. The cookies are very good but not worth $40 a night. Park has only 2/pull thrus and both are on the end along road, so most noise with most expensive site. - Beastandbelle

As others said, an older park that is well maintained and friendly staff. Most sites a little small for today's rigs, so vehicles often encroached on roadway, but we were OK in site C2 with our 35' motorhome. There was a RV club here so park was very full and they were using the club house. WiFi about average, but after several nights without on the Olympic Peninsula it was nice to have. Laundry $2 + $1.25 and clean, but closes promptly at 8 pm. Gravel drive and sites but potholes filled and sites quite level. A little bag of homemade cookies was a nice touch. Have a few pull-thrus, but not available for Passport America. - BandD

Older park that is well landscaped and maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff. Roads are OK for big rigs but sites can be pretty tight. (45'+jeep). We were put in probably the best site for a big rig. I believe it was 39. Easy park to get to off the highway. Plenty of places to walk the dog. Would stay here again. - msrebel

This park is easy to get to and navigation within is easy. Interior roads are paved and sites are grass. Sites are pretty level and close together. Utilities are all at the back of the site. Did not use the cable or Wifi. Verizon worked pretty well. Restrooms were clean. Price is ROD. - cwier

This is an older park behind a more modern park in Elma. We have stayed here before and feel it has gone downhill over the years. Mostly dirt and dead grass spaces with full hookups. It still is a great place to stay overnight. Very quiet and peaceful. All sites are back-in. We were told to choose a space and set up. Lots of people there - it was almost full. A lot of full-time RVs, which were old, but neatly cared for. We only stayed overnight, so we didn't do anything. There are some fast food places for a quick bite to eat. We would stay here again if in the area. - WSKeifer

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this park. The last time was three years ago and, since that time, the condition of this park has really gone downhill. The buildings are in need of paint, walk ways are not swept after mowing so dried grass is everywhere. The sites are not being mown as they should be. I mentioned this to one of the hosts and he said that the rain has prevented the mowing. We were there for a week without any rain and no mowing was being done. In the laundry room half of the washing machines were out of order. The biggest complaint we had was about the folks in the office. So disorganized, couldn't find our reservation which I had made a month before. Then they said they hadn't read their morning email and that is where they found it! Then they didn't give me a receipt, a parking hang tag, a map brochure or schedule of events! KM properties needs to do a surprise visit at this place and start cracking some whips to get it back in shape. We on the other hand will cross this place off our list! Another problem was the tax and extras. They applied $23 on a $70 fee!!! - Rick & Karen

Gravel road, gravel sites, wifi was terrible and Verizon is the only cell service that works. Bathrooms were dated but clean. - Phoenixaway

Nice park - great location - has all you'd want (including cookies upon check-in!) Easy pull thru's, on the edge of Hoquiam & Aberdeen, not far from Ocean City (lots of great restaurants, you can drive onto the beach and the sunsets are AMAZING. - alansills

Mostly permanent residents I think. Sites are close together. Internet is crap. The managers are angels. The service is beyond belief. You drive in and they lead you in to your site, and help you get set up. I've seen them loan out a sewer hose for someone that had a site too far away. Gordon is the RV fixer and he is the kindest man and he knows so much about RV repair. We had a problem with our landing jacks and he fixed it when we brought in a new motor, and charged us very little. Bless you Gordon! Add fresh-backed cookies when you arrive. The place isn't perfect, but the people are! There is an RV repair/store in Ocean City, just before you get to Ocean Shores. They had a part we needed. Expensive, but it had what we needed. - LeeL

The nicest people run this place. It's not very big, but the sites are level and some are good for big rigs, but not all would be wide enough. Pull in places with views of the water outside your front window. The highway is very close, but not noisy. I didn't use the WiFi but phone service was good on Verizon. - rfarkle

We stopped here for one night on our way south on Hwy 101. All the sites are right on the river and all are back-in. Our site was almost level - had to use Lynx levelers on one side. There are no other ammenities like showers, toilets or wifi, so I didn't rate the cleanliness category. The price seems a little high considering, but didn't want to drive further south looking. We pulled in to our site as the electric box is at the entrance of the site on the left side. The pads are gravel and grass. The park info said there were pull-thru sites but I didn't see any. - Ravengirl

This is a no frills park. It is co-located with a catamaran building business just off highway 101 on the Willapa River. 30amp hookup with water worked well. No sewer but there is a dump on property for use. Internal road is good and some sites are tight but works. - mlbarry

I stayed 2 nights from June 3 to 5.
First of all when i checked in the clubhouse , manager was friendly (even He's speaking skill wasn't good).
We take the rv+golf pack ,so we paid 2 persons green fee for 3 persons.
(they has promotion 2+1 free eventing now days)
W.C was clean, hot water shower was good too.
We also used BBQ grill with no charges.
It wasn't much recreation stuffs ,but reasonable price with good facility.
Free wi-fi also included .
All hook-up were well maintained too.
My opinion " cozy, golf, no extra charge in facility." good~!
They has several discount promotions so before you go check the web-site "rvgolf101" also they are welcome to pets. - jack88

Very peaceful and staff is very friendly. Camp sites are very short distance from the 1st Tee Box. Pets are allowed on the course but should be leashed. Large screen TV's in two different lounges. A very quiet place at night with no traffic noise. Just a short distance from town that offers nice restruants and stores. - Dan Barrus

Nice park a short drive out of town. They obviously cater to golfers, but are quite friendly to other RVers. Sites are basically in a field adjacent to the course, with power and water hookups. Very peaceful at night, especially when only a handful of the sites are occupied. I looks like quarters would get pretty tight if every space was booked -- we saw 3 only picnic tables to share among the campers. Bathrooms were clean, with private toilet, sink and shower stall in each one. Very fast Wi-Fi as well. - RVNed
