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.

Nice variety of trails that are just right for an easy hour or two of walking. There is a campground, beach areas with concession stands, restrooms with showers, picnick tables and boat rentals. Enjoyable visit.

Wonderful safe swimming area. Went to YMCA camp there as a child. Beautiful old growth evergreens. Lots of picnic tables nestled among the trees and along the shore. Best place yet for Fourth of July picnic and family reunion. Restful, peaceful, restorative.

We had a family reunion at the Environmental Learning Center inside the park. It was the perfect location for a big gathering. They have a great commercial kitchen with all the dishes, pots & pans & utensils you might need. There is access to Deep Lake (which is actually a very shallow lake). 8 canoes, 4 paddle boards, a row... More

It's an OK park. We camped there many years ago but sites are not private. Too much traffic in the camping area by day users. Facilities are basic and sometimes not clean. The lake is picturesque and is a popular swimming spot. Fishing is ok but you must have a boat, no fish around the dock or swimming area.
