We spent 3 nights here in August and really enjoyed it. After the gravel parks of the Alaska highway, a nice and level concrete pad was nice to see. Registration is in the casino. I was happy to have read previous reviews that recommended parking and unhitching in the gravel lot just west of the RV park, and then just walking over to registration. Roads are in good shape and easily navigable, although I can see how people parking in the street can cause issues. We did not experience that when we were there. Our site (#10) is listed as 50' long, but we had the back end of the coach hang over the grass, so we were able to park our toad in front of the coach without it hanging out into the street. Our site was in the corner close to the WA 108 and the entrance, but road noise was not noticeable. Our grass lawn was spacious, but the grass was a bit high. All utilities were fine, plus our site was satellite friendly. No enclosed dog park but plenty of places to walk the pooches. Trash containers were too small. They charged my credit card when I made the reservation of the cost without tax, and then the tax was charged after departure, which is odd. I would definitely stay there again. - mtmsf

The park is not big rig friendly. Check in was at the hotel lobby. Make sure that you get a site that is large enough for your rig. - bwandwhitey

This is a nice campground for a casino parking lot. There is grass between all of the sites. The outside loop sites are all back-in and three sides of that are all small back-in sites. We have a 23' travel trailer and we didn't have enough room to keep our car parked in front. One side of back-in sites were long with large motorhomes. Then the middle is all pull throughs. They are big enough for motorhomes and 5th wheels but not big enough for toads and trucks. We witnessed a lot of really bad drivers trying to pull into their spots and they were just crushing the beautiful grass and sprinkler heads. I can see why people complain that they can't maneuver around this park - when people insist on keeping their toads and tow vehicles near their sites they stick out into the road and make things very difficult. Security is constantly walking around and asking you to move your trucks/toads to the parking lot. The internet was really fast. The bathrooms were really nice and clean. The laundry was clean and had great prices - 75 cents to wash and 75 cents to dry. The park is very quiet at night - you might hear an occasional train in the distance or a logging truck but it didn't wake us up. Yes, you have to check in at the hotel and then go drive to your site. We parked right in front of the hotel's side door near the check in desk and then moved once we checked in. It was simple. There appears to be a boondock gravel lot on the far end of the property just past the RV sites. It was pretty crowded, too. - OurBigAdventure

Absolutely beautiful view of the Olympic Range. Very peaceful setting yet centrally located to Highway 101 as you journey towards Hoodsport from Olympia, or visa versa near the major shopping areas of Shelton. There are lots of really beautiful trails and opportunities for biking, horseback riding as well as sky diving! We stayed during a local festival, Dragonfest, and were so pleased with how accommodating, friendly, and helpful the staff were. Club house facilities and plenty of interesting things to do in the area! - shahowis

This is an alternative kind of camp ground for us. You must be an Elk member to stay here. It is not a public campground. My overall reaction to staying here for 2 nights is positive, in spite of what I may now explain.
The layout is interesting - not all that level and definitely not groomed. There are 4 or 5 pull through sites and 15 or so back in sites. All are E/W only. Some of the interior roads are in fairly good shape, others not so much. There is a dump site as you leave; the power was only 30 amp or less. (It was over 90 degrees each day - we ran the generator.) There is wi-fi at no cost - not bad but a little spotty. Our DirecTv worked as well as some local channels on the wind-up antenna. There were only 5 or 6 other rigs in the park when we were here. The price was terrific! All on the honor system - put the money in the envelope and the envelope in the tube.
We never met the camp host, however we were there for the Thursday night Bingo in the lodge basement, where we also found a fairly decent hamburger and sandwich menu. The lodge isn't open often - Thursday and Friday nights primarily. The road out is scary - we will be exiting thru the entrance, thank you very much! We might come back here. We have friends in the area and like the price. - BethnBubba

You must be an Elks Lodge Member. The sites are fairly large and easy to access. There is a large grassy area where we ran our two dogs. beautiful views and the lodge is very nice.
Camp host provided a welcome package, we enjoyed her company and think she is the best host we've ever met. Enjoyed Dinner during Thursday Bingo and Had fun at the Friday Country Dance. Sad that we missed the live Band on Saturday. Volunteer staff very helpful and friendly. - Camper2541

This s JUST a paved parking lot with water and elect (no sewer). No restrooms except going into casino, no showers. BUT it is a very quiet and clean place. We used it as a base for nearby things and as a day to rest.... plus the casino was small and a fun break in our travels. it is a super clean casino and parking lot-- very nice staff and good security. - ginger2you

I called for a reservation during business hours and did not receive a return call. So as instructed, I contacted the night manager at his site. The night manager seemed very bothered when I did this. The cost was never disclosed on their web page so I anticipated the $15 per night found on this website. Turned out to be $40. There are better RV parks for a much cheaper cost which are more developed. - Karichel

We stayed here in a motorhome for several months (The monthly rate went up to $450 January 2015). It's a nice place with several of the RV spots on the water (next to the restaurant).
Level spots, most of good size. Good water, cable TV & good wifi (usually better than my Verizon with the booster).
The bathrooms are private with adequate hot water, but the showers cost 50 cents for five minutes. The laundry room had 2 sets of washer/dryer ($1.50 wash & $1 dry for 38min).
There is a restaurant across the street & a small dock in Spencer Lake for our use.
The owner is serious about the 5 mph speed limit.... I'd stay there again. - becida

Located at 1111 E. Pickering Rd., N of Shelton on Hwy 3. Has good gravel interior roads, roomy, level, gravel and grass sites. Has very friendly owners: we were allowed to pick our site. Seems like 10 units lived here full time. Has excellent cable TV service. Lots of trees in the area, but nearby ones were trimmed high and did not interfere with slide outs or awnings. Was a clean and quiet RV park. Rained a lot when we were here, so very little outdoor activity noticed. Verizon worked well for phone and internet. - renodick

A wonderful state marine park. Prices have risen pretty high. There are a few sites with good electric and water, but most are without hookups. This is one of the best managed parks in Washington. Hookup sites are $35, dry are $30. There are 22 sites and a group site. Some are quite near Puget Sound. - PALPJL

A beautiful little park on Hartstine Island in Puget Sound about 14 miles from Shelton. The place is just lovely and taken very good care of. There is no dump station- closest one is not near. There is water available and the public rest rooms are very nice. Showers take quarters- 50¢ for 3 minutes. This is not real close to anything, but if you are a boater or want to use your kayak this is a wonderful spot. - PALPJL

RV sites are close, busy, noisy, and dusty. Some of the tent only sites appear to be excellent. - DaytonWA

This campground is directly on Highway 101, on the side opposite the Bay, so you have to cross the highway to go to the beach and day use area on the Hood Canal. Obviously, road noise is also a problem. I was happy to have a full hookup site, but hookups are at the back of sites, which does not make the sewer hookup very convenient to use. Sites are small and crammed together. In addition, the roads are dirt, as are campsites, so dust is a problem, especially because several houses also use the park roads for access. I had to keep my windows closed and air conditioning on because of the dust from the cars going by in front of my site. Verizon is decent, but I don't know about other carriers. Because of the large trees, there are no sites where you can get satellite access. They really need to pave the roads to cut down on dust and provide separate access for houses. - judy_online

This is a small State Park in the Olympic National Forest system. There are 37 campsites, of which 18 are utility (30/50) sites, 17 are tent sites, and 2 are for bikers/hikers. This park does not take reservations, it's first come, first serve. It was August, mid-week (Wednesday), and I arrived around 11:00 AM. Campground was half-full, with only a few utility spots available. By Thursday, it was full (and kind of noisy!!!)! The camping spaces are "crammed" together. There are lots of trees for good shade, but you can still look out your window and wave to your neighboring camper. Some of the utility slots are back-in, and some are "half-circles" (try "bending" your RV around that slot!). If your RV is larger than 30 feet, you may not fit in any of the utility spaces, let alone trying to get into them! The driving road through the camping area is narrow and runs up and down hill in a circle with sharp curves. I had a back-in spot, but trying to back in was laborious. Fortunately, a very nice young boy from the neighboring camping spot offered to help me get in. The utility sites have an adequate place to pitch a tent next to your RV, and a fire-pit and picnic table. TV reception via antenna is adequate, not perfect, but adequate. There are hiking trails, and there is a beach across the highway. Next door to the park is a public RV resort with a laundromat, but I'm not sure if you're "allowed" to use the laundromat if you are staying at the State Park. I stayed two nights. If you leave your windows open while sleeping, you will hear the traffic on US Highway 101, even at 3:00 AM! - JJandCP

This is a small well maintained campground with 15 sites, which overlooks the beautiful Hood Canal. The interior roads are crushed stone and big rig access was fair. Our large and level pad was paved and had a picnic table. We have a motor home and chose to back into our site, so we had an incredible water view through our windshield. Our site was very spacious, plenty of room for our towed and well angled for privacy. There was some road noise during the day but it was quiet at night, and having the motel and cabins behind the RV Park certainly helped to muffle the noise. There are two unisex bathrooms both spotlessly clean, and a laundry room with a couple of washers and dryers. Pet friendly, but no dogs allowed on the beach. WiFi was excellent and fast. The town of Shelton is about a 20 minute drive away, and has a Walmart and Safeway. We would definitely stay here again, this place is all about the wonderful views, views, views over the water, watching seals, sea lions and sea otters through your windshield, what could be better than that! - Bluejug

This is a very small RV park (about a dozen spaces) associated with a motel & cabins. The property itself is also small. RV spaces are behind the motel & office and face the water on the Hood Canal with a really a beautiful view. The manager who checked us in was really friendly & helpful. All-in-all a delightful place to stay. - storms

We were a bit concerned as we tried to call ahead, but the calls weren't answered and didn't go to an answering machine and so we continued with the expectation that we might have to make other arrangements. On arrival we were warmly greeted and given an excellent site. The road is paved and the pads are concrete. While we did have to unhook as all sites are backins, there was ample place to park. Nearly all the sites face the water, so motorhomes have a great unobstructed windshield view of the water. The sites are behind the motel so most of the road noise is muted. There is a gas grill for use by customers. There is a small selection of toiletries and snacks available for sale at the office. A grocery store is located about 2 miles north on 101. This is a fairly small park, but the sites are nicely spaced and angled so as to not feel confined. WiFi was excellent and surprisingly fast. There are 2 washers and dryers in the locked laundry room. $1.50 wash/25 cents for 10 minutes to dry. We would come here again if in the area. - Trailbuddy
Sep 2017 - $42.00
The pros are the sites are shady and right across the street from a nice beach/walking area and full hookups (30 amp). Good cell here (Verizon, T mobile and ATT were all over 7mbps unboosted). All major stations OTA. The area is gorgeous and there are lots of cute little shops and restaurants to explore. The beach is rocky and has a lot of shells but still nice to walk on. The cons are this campground is tiny. I barely fit into my site. In fact my front tires ate some tree stumps getting in. I have a 34ft class A. I believe they should probably not take anything over 32ft here with the awkward layout and tight turns. The sites are placed haphazardly and people are right up on one another. Everyone has their campfires going and due to the lack of space between sites you can't even have your windows open it's so smokey. I'm not very sensitive to smoke at all and it is out of control here. For the price of $42/night this is high for a state park. I heard there was a larger state park nearby which is better suited for large vehicles. I wish I had done more research on that. - Jessie1975

It's right on a lake with great views and nice public spaces with a bunch rundown long stay RVs and a hodgepodge of shacks and mobile homes.This place is a mystery - Lhuff35204
