History - My Father worked for the state parks . His family Homesteaded land just a few miles from Millersylvania. He built alot of picnic tables and did alot of logging of trees in that area. He was born in 1912 and his family new the Millers.
Closure - We went to the park today Tuesday 1 October 2019 only to find that it was closed. Apparently it will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays now. Website stated it would be closed on Mondays and Tuesday beginning 2 October 2019 NOT 1 October 2019. Though it was only a 45 minute drive there it would be nice if the park follows its own guidelines.
Pleasantly surprised - My wife and I tent-camped here midweek in August. This is a very nice, well-kept campground with clean restroom facilities, pay showers, ample water spigots and a great beach on beautiful Lake Wenatchee. We were surprised by the lack of flies and mosquitos. The constant wind may be the reason. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. The only downside for me is the lack of privacy as many of the sites are fairly close to each other.
Atta girl for Kimberly Cox - Ms. Kimberly Cox was very helpful in making our recent family camp out at the Manchester group RV site a success - she went out of her way, took extra time, and promptly responded to some special requests and concerns that our group had regarding our stay. Thank you Kimberly You are a Cut above and the kind of person that our beautiful Washington State Parks should be represented by
Summer is a bit ambiguous . . . - On a recent trip, May 18 to 25, through Washington and Idaho, we discovered parks and museums may trigger seasonal openings for Memorial Day weekend.
Turned out to be a bummer at Farragut State Park, where we pre-paid for five days of museum visiting at the park and in the area.
Ginko S.P. lists hours for Summer -- Can we count on a visit during our return to western Washington on May 24
Beautiful park - Visited in Oct. 2018. Had a great time exploring the Indian carvings and taking the tour. The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful and helped me get settled. They also gave me information. about the camp and surrounding areas. Must come back when the spring flowers are in bloom
crazy overcrowded!!! - Visited a couple of years ago in June. Fantastic place. Visited again August 2018 and it was insane. Not even safe to drive through it was so crowded. Looks like it was over capacity. Met some other people at another campground that had just come from there and said it looked like Woodstock. Completely out of control. So sad for it is a beautiful spot.
- host family this yr is a joke, bathrooms were gross, we were there for four days and i only saw host family go in those bath rooms once to put t.p. in them as they were almost out in every bath room, dogs on leash rule, ya another joke, over crouding on camo sites, as many as 20 people on one site, and five cars, speed lemit is 5mph and most were doing 20, camp hosts r clearly not doing there job, but in past yrs it was much better, hosts were friendly and made u feel welcome, and things were clean and rules were followed,
OPEN THIS PARK !!!!! - Unbelievable. Best park ever. I will run it. Hey Washington we need to get our parks open on the East side. We, the people own this park. Done with Politics, if WA isnt going to so anything, then give it to the people.
