Lake 5, Trailer Sites 2
The lake is fantastic. Beautiful and relatively warm. The trailer sites are poor. No privacy at all, kids playing on playground well past quiet hours, my truck and 21' trailer just barely fit into the site. Neighbor right on top of us.

What A Gem
Pulled in on a Monday, with no reservations. One night at a time but not crowded. Didn't need septic as a dump station provided. Can see how when crowded it could be quite busy. Nice place for families with a swimming beach and playgrounds. Very well maintained. Lots to do nearby

Edit: We came back one year later! Stayed in a spot with septic (that's a nice perk). The park was much less crowded this year (the weather may have played a part as 2018 was super smoky and a great number of Easter Washingtonians were trying to get a break from it). We kept commenting on how much quieter it was camping this year. Still on our go-to list and we'll be back again next summer!
A very popular Tacoma Power park with day use area (lake), camping, hiking trail, and a dam overlook.
Pluses: the lake, the hiking trail, the scenic dam overlook.
Cons: not much privacy, lots of people on the weekends (to be expected in the summer), not all the RV spots have septic, if you get a non septic spot the dump station does not allow you to sani-flush your tanks.
Armed with a little more knowledge, we will definitely be back to this state park!

A very lovely park and probably best enjoyed in the off season. We spent 1 night here with little company on a Sunday in April. Even saw Mt. Ranier! Be forewarned: they were only taking cash or check when the park office was closed. We made arrangements with the park host to pay the fee on Monday morning before we left by debit card.

It’s an ok park for us. There is no privacy at all. You are very close to Alder Lake though. Great area for fishing and picnicking by the water. Can be tricky parking with longer RVs.

Have camped in the 'group' camping area annually for many years. The park is beautiful, bathrooms and showers are very well maintained and camp hosts are friendly. The cost $35 per night with no discounts available in the group area. Only gave a 4 star rating because no TV or wifi (which actually is a good thing) and for this price is usually available.

Rocky Point Annex
We were actually at the southern end of the lake, closer to Elbe. Very pretty park. Has some road noise but that lessens during the night.
