Our first visit to the Banks Lake area of WA. So beautiful and this park did not disappoint. Well placed hook ups, level paved sites with a view. Gorgeous!! It was a one night stay...but we are already making plans to go back!!
We really liked this resort. Reminded us of a day gone by. Beautiful area...super nice people. Pizza parlor, golf course, pool, river...lots of grassy areas. Limited full hook-up sites for RVs and even those were a sort of tough to get into. That being said, it was a wonderful stay and we would definitely go back again~~
This park is really wonderful. Not at all crowded when we arrived. It was the perfect spot to watch the storm that was rolling in. Very spacious sites, well cared for and a wonderful path connecting the two campgrounds. The planetarium was not open when we were there...but we would have most definitely visited it. Sunrise lit up the dunes creating some beautiful photo ops!!
Lake Cascade SP is not one park...but a series of parks around Lake Cascade. The one we stayed in was BEAUTIFUL...but it was not the one we had a reservation for. As we are not from this area...we had no idea each SP has a different name and we had missed our park a few miles (20) back. The reservations desk took care of us for which we were very grateful. The park we stayed in was FAB!!! Unbelievable bathrooms!! Right on the lake..and we walked over the dam in the morning.
Very nice park. Excellent sites, level, easy access to restrooms. Some great trails start w/in the park. There is also a marina, frisbee golf course and small restaurant/store. BEAUTIFUL check-in facility which is also an interpretive center.
This park is the gold standard for all RV parks. We had a premium site w/a large stamped concrete pad, dining table w/umbrella and gas BBQ. The grounds are beautiful, well maintained...and to top it off they have a personal attendant who comes by and brings firewood, will go get ice if you need it...or make reservations for you elsewhere on your travels. We enjoyed the ice cream shoppe at night!! In addition we had some mechanical issues and they had a mobile technician available to come help us...on the holiday weekend no less. Excellent park, wonderful people...and a must stay for anyone visiting Glacier!!
We dry camped here in a spot by the lake. It was grassy with tons of room to spread out, pitch a tent, and access the many trails this park has to offer. The restrooms in this part of the park are older and could use a refresh. The site we had was right next to the check-in but we hardly noticed any extra noise. We drove through the other campgrounds where most of the RV's were parked. Not much privacy, but some did offer views of the beach. This is a huge park, with so many things to do. It is just a quick trip over the Astoria bridge to several other fun parks for kids or a visit to Oregon beach towns of Seaside and Cannon Beach.
This is a beautiful park and very well maintained. Lots of hiking trails, good shade, and nice wide spots. Not a lot of privacy, but you don't feel crowded. The only negative is the road noise from I-90. There is no escaping it, but you can minimize it by selecting a site as far away as possible. We were in site 44 which was pretty much as close to the freeway as you can get. The fan at night helped drown it out but no matter where you go in the park it is there. The lake, actually a wide spot in the river is very, very cold but calm. Great for kayaking or canoeing.
