I would hazard a guess that the positive reviews were by folks on the individual sites. We were in one of the Group sites G-8. We reserved for Thursday-Sunday. Our first night there was fine but when Friday arrived the hordes arrived and the sites was so crowded it was almost scary to move a vehicle. Two huge groups moved in and they had cars, tents, tables and canopies crammed onto their site. What was meant for maybe six tents and maybe 12 people had easily 50 people! And they partied way past the 10:00pm quiet time. Lots of loud voices, music and drunken pot smokers! And NO ONE enforcing the rules! No rangers coming by and when the sheriff came in he left and did nothing! Found out that this park never enforces the rules and folks know that liquor and drugs are not discouraged. Asked a volunteer to inform the Ranger about the disorderly group but NO ONE did anything about it! The surface of the group area was dirt with some small gravel. It was VERY dusty. We also had people constantly walking through our site! There were no sidewalks available along the main roads. Paths to the lake were not handicap accessible. Our group of 9 adults were very sorry we had booked into this park and will never return again. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Fifth Wheel.

NOt much to do here except the lake. The water level fluctuates and is kept low due to cracks in the dam!!!! The area around the lake is mucky dirt that smells to high heaven! Not a good place to go swimming! Don't know if Tacoma Power does water quality testing! They are the managers of this lake and the dam.

Great park. Operated by Tacoma Power. Reservations through Washington State Parks system. Main campground closer to lake "Birds eye" loop up with some overlooking lake. Lake is down due to dam not approved for earthquake. Still new swim area and boat launch at lower level. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of the best campgrounds we have been to. The first night we stayed in site 33, a pull thru. It had a nice view of the lake. The next two nights we moved to sites 27/28 with friends. The sites had lots of room between them. The lawns were well kept. The lake is very low so the swimming area is not available, but people were swimming along the shore. Lots of people had boats. The park fills up on the weekends with families. We stayed in the main campground loop which had lots of trees for shade. We looked at the Birds Eye View area which was also very nice. No trees for shade, located on top of a hill away from the water. It was a relaxing place and we will certainly stay there again. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful, well-maintained park owned by the power company operating the dam. Staff friendly and accommodating. Stayed mid-week for two nights. Excellent swimming beach that gets raked every day. Nice store/cafe open during busy season. Stayed in a pull-through spot near the swimming hole with kids. This is one of the best equipped campgrounds anywhere. Big lawns for play, paved biking paths, BMX path (not paved), boat launch with two long docks for loading/unloading. The addition of sewer hookups and Wi-Fi would earn a perfect score. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in one of the waterfront RV sites. No sewer hookup but nice dump station. The sites are nicely spaced apart - felt mostly private. The road down to the water has some very sharp corners that would be difficult to maneuver with a larger trailer. We only had a 19 ft and it was still tight. Only toilets near the waterfront sites. No showers so if you were tent camping it would be a hike to the showers. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Travel Trailer.

I last reviewed this park in June 2011. Same great park now as it was then. Park staff at the front gate are especially friendly and helpful. I also note that they patrol the area frequently. The camp is well maintained and the lawns are immaculate. We'll be back...in Sept. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great campground run by Tacoma Public Utilities as part of the Cowlitz River Project. We stayed in the main campground and found that the views of Riffe lake were fantastic from our site. There are only partial hook ups at this campground so visiting the showers was necessary and they were spotless the both times I used them. There is a store/cafe near the beach which carries most of the items you might run out of or maybe forget and the Riffe burger basket isn't half bad. The only criticism is that we would have loved to have stayed an extra day except for the policy of apparently allowing people to rent a camp site to park their boat and tow vehicle while camping with friends at another site effectively locking someone out of actually using the spot for its intended purpose of camping. It was disappointing to see it allowed. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park. Nicely tended lawns surround the campsites. Campsite themselves have paved drives and gravel tent/table area. Driveways are not level. I had to add three inches on the left side to find level. Remember, this is a campground. A great place to come and let your kids/grandkids play. Good sight seeing in the area. If your life requires television and WiFi this is not the place for you. I just wish that they would add sewer hook ups. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park! We stayed for a week and had a great time. We went with a very large group with a motorhome, travel trailer, several tents, and 4 boats. Sites had plenty of room and there was an open space across from our sites that was perfect for a giant water fight, but would also be great for a football game, baseball game, etc. Lots of stuff to do: bike paths, horseshoes, playground, and swimming area. The lake is huge and when we were here during the middle of the week there was not much traffic. Loved that there was laundry facility in the park. Would give it a 10 if there was sewer hookup. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Travel Trailer.

A good place for an overnight stay with pretty lake views even from some of the upper loop sites. We wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the lake. I would like to stay near the shore next time. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent campground only 25 miles east of I-5 on the way to Mt. Ranier. Sites are laid out in such a way that you don't have to look in your neighbors window. Cell phone availability is very spotty to non existant. I would give this a higher rating if they had 50 amp and sewer at each site. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Motorhome.

The regular reserved RV sites are $22; however overflow unreserved sites without power and water are $11. We actually moved from a $22 site to the $11 site because these sites were right on the water; had a better view; and more convenient to the boat launch, swimming beach, laundry and store. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Motorhome.

We love this park due to the large campsites and large play field. There is also a store near the swimming area that has breakfasts during the summer. There are multiple playgrounds also. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Level gravel sites with lots of grass around your space. Only water and electric, but plenty of dumping stations on the way out. This place is a jewel with a great staff. It does fill up on weekends. You probably won't get in without a reservation. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites were large and spacious. One draw back is the birds eye loop is up a pretty decent sized hill. Restrooms were clean but doors were left proped open so bugs would hang out in there. Showers were only 1 stall so you would have to get dressed on the wet floor. Not much to do in the area. If you like boating/fishing this is a great location for you. We camped at Mossyrock Park in a Motorhome.
