Perfect location for a picnic or a campout. Make your way through the wooded trails down to the lake and search for skipping rocks

Did I say "My Favorite"!!?? This park brings back so many childhood memories. I spent my afternoons here as a young person with my friends. There are a lot of trails and lots of wildlife.... the park and camping are wonderful as well... a great place to take the family!

You will really like this campground if you are in the Olympia, Washington area. Nestled in the woods and a wonderful little lake to peruse. Even to come for the day is a treat.

This park is a hidden gem. For the avid runner it offers excellent trail running through a densely forested area. You get views of forest, creeks, campsites, the lake, and the other surrounding areas. Only annoying thing is you need a Discovery Pass to park there. Haven't ever swam in the lake - but some have said that it is... More

The park is beautiful and in a decent location. The camp sites are really close together and most have no privacy. Not my favorite place.

This park is perhaps 10 miles south of Olympia, WA. But in other ways, it is worlds apart. Beautiful old growth forests, a deep blue lake, and great campground. Even for locals, a terrific place for a walk, or hike. There is nothing like walking through an old growth forest, and they are rapidly becoming far too rare Who would... More

We spent only one night, but wished we could have spent more! The tent we stayed in was large enough to hold a king size bed, a sitting area, small desk area with a mini-fridge, one-cup coffee maker and microwave. Bed was comfortable (memory foam on a platform) and the tent was clean. They do provide coffee, s’more makings, popcorn... More

My husband and I enjoyed some glamping at pampered camping. The tent was well appointed and about 15 feet square. The fireplace was a nice touch. We ordered a bundle of firewood which lasted us about 3 hours. The bed was comfortable and we had no problems at all with bugs or Mosquitos in the tent.

This is a very nice park where you can go for the day or stay for a week or two. The property was given to the people of Washington by a wealthy benefactor who lived there a hundred years ago. They kept all the old growth trees they could and it shows. If you only get to visit one park... More

People everywhere. Only come here if you have a bunch of kids and have given up on the idea of privacy.
