Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 11 Super Nice! by Alan and Tracy
This is one of the nicer parks we have gone to. Very nice grounds and restrooms, they are very clean also it is very well maintained & secured. Keep up the good work.
July 8 An instant favorite by Brass Moose
Campsites are pleasantly among the trees and well kept. The beach and playground are clean and gave my child alternate play activities. Friendly staff and well patrolled. Only downside was slight highway noise (no big deal) and the camping area mens room was a mess (the beach restrooms were very clean, though). For us, it is so close to Seattle, it is a no-brainer. Will be going back many times.
June 14 Always a blast by Mary
I started going to this park when I was a kid. Now that I have four of my own, every year we camp here and they love it as much as I do. Its nice and woodsy, and the sites are almost all spacious. Reserve online to get the ideal sites, and reserve early.
August 12 Best site for expecting moms by Expecting dad
If you are expecting a baby, then its pretty pleasant out here
June 14 Lake Easton State Park by Dee of Tacoma
I make a point to visit the park everytime I travel from Seattle to Kennewick. I look forward to the beauty and serenity.
August 20 Really nice
Beautiful park; great beach and day use area...you may want to steer clear of the sites right by the highway as they can be a little noisy.
