Nice small state park within 20 miles of the southern part of Seattle. I agree with the comments about the walk ins and the site board not being very helpful. Two sides to it by crossing the road separating the park. West side, camping and the shore front day use area. Winter use is great. Hard to find all years campsites sometimes. Looks like major upgrades to the utilities. Not our first time here and will stay again as a wayside.

We came for the hot air balloon festival. It's open all year and even though they have been pounded by recent storms, they carved out a space in the snow for us. New owners and many upgrades have been made in the restroom: showers, laundromat, electrical, plumbing, and more. I would give it a 10 except it looks like it can get a little tight if the park was full. Can't say much about the grounds since it's under 2-3 feet of snow, but the area they cleared for us is grass and is solid even with the melting snow. Fastest internet I have ever experienced in any park from Homer, Alaska to New Orleans. Staff is great and very friendly. So easy to walk to the historic, rustic small downtown. Cell phone (Verizon) signal was stronger than I get in some metropolitan areas. Deer consider this a safe nursery area and they walk right next to our RV like we not even here. Also, eagles are a common site. It's hard to find winter camping with full hookups in "real" winter. This place is a gem.

Nice park right on Banks Lake at the north end of Electric City. It has two sections and we camped on the north section in site #28 backed right to the lake. The north end is a little higher elevation as it is about 30 feet above the water. The south section seems to be a little tighter between site but it is right at water level and popular with boaters. All spots have shade and it is right on Highway 155 so there is some road noise but not too bad. It appears that back in sites have power and water but not sewer. Most sites have a little grass. I haven't seen the south facilities but the north ones are old but clean. Unfortunately, there is only one shower stall each for men and women at the north end. It's only a couple of miles south of Grand Coulee dam and there is a big Safeway on the way to the dam. Management seems nice and helpful and there is boat rentals and a decent store on site. There is a dump station at both locations. We would stay here again.

The views from here are fantastic. The park is very clean with a full laundry. It's a small park a little walking distance from all the hustle and bustle of the harbor. We have a front bedroom Airstream that has full wrap around windows in the rear dinette area, so the view is a 9-10. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots to do here and the drive in has incredible views during the spring when there is still lots of snow on the mountains. We have 2 days here and tempted to go for 3. We would stay here again.

Nice park though considerably better than most parking lots. It gets an 7 simply because of the view. It also has laundry facilities that seem expensive compared to other parks. It's convenient in that it's close to town and has a small store and restaurant. I see reviews of the spit but it's like a carnival atmosphere there and not a single tree. Actually, I think it's pretty ugly and crowded there especially during the summer.

We loved this place. Very good balance of amenities and true campground surroundings. Well spaced sites all along the Tolsana creek. All have tables and fire rings. Small store and laundry available. Wi-Fi good depending on your site and the number of users. Our first stay was on the way to Homer and we liked it so much we stayed 3 days instead of the 1 planned and stayed again on the way back. Very friendly staff. Office also has some on the most unusual and interesting antiques for sale. Fishing for Graylings right next to your site. Large playground area with a volleyball net. All the roads are compacted gravel and in good condition. Big rigs can easily drive through the park. My truck/trailer combination is a little over 50' and I was able to easily drive throughout the park. Dump station on site at no extra charge.

This one of the most beautiful campgrounds I have ever seen. It is immaculate with paved roads and sites. We were here in early spring and the scenery was nothing short of spectacular. A kayak rental shack is near the lake. A great ATV, bike, or hike trail goes along the lake for about 12 miles. Weekends fill up fast and it's a 10 mile road from the main highway, but worth it if you get a site. Most sites are well spaced and heavily wooded with tables and fire rings.

Very well manicured park with paved roads and campsites. Easy access from Anchorage, good TV and cell phone reception. No showers and clean pit toilets. Very busy on weekends due to being close to Anchorage. Most campsites well spaced. Very close to Eagle River and King Salmon fishing allowed on certain days for 1 month after Memorial day.

This is such a depressing place. It is right on the junction of two major roads. It is flat with two very sad looking pines in the whole place. It is a flat gravel parking lot. The bathrooms are clean, and there is a river nearby, but no sites on the river. The woman at the desk was very friendly and we used our Passport membership, so it was cheap, but never, never again would I camp here. There's nothing really wrong with it if you don't mind gravel parking lots with no trees at a busy intersection, but there are better places to park in Soldatna, for sure.

Park is basically a gravel parking lot, but very convenient because it is in the center of town. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and laundry are very clean. There is a very good grocery store right across the street. The Wi-Fi was poor. We stayed there in mid May and it was nice to have water power and sewer available this early.

Nice little park right on the highway but also next to a small lake. We were there early so only power and TV cable were available. Water and sewer were frozen. Only about 7 sites were available due to frozen water lines. Bathrooms and laundry were under renovation so no comments on those. Decent restaurant and full services with gas, diesel, and propane. Mechanics were there for repairs. Staff was nice. We would stay there again if lake side site was available.
