June 4 Mosquito nightmare by Mozzies
Beautiful park, well maintained. Mosquitoes are so bad, we left early. Even got eaten through our clothing! Never again! Shame as the park is beautiful with large lots.
May 14 Dont forget your bug spray!!
We tent camped in one of the primitive sites. The campsites are spacious. Campground is clean. Pit toilets were suprisingly clean. However, the park makes you buy shower tokens..only to find out the shower was broken. Plus..the mosquitoes were horrible. Seriously..pack your Deet! If you camp before June..bring extra blankets! Super cold at night.
August 22 We will come back by E. Brink
With only a 3-4 hour drive from the Seattle Area this makes for a great destination to find some warm sunny boating weather. This was our first time to the reservoir and we enjoyed our time swimming and boating. Unfortunately we were notified of toxic algae after our first day of swimming. We were advised not to swim or boat in the water and to take showers after any water activity. We continued to swim and play in the water however we did not let our dogs join us so one person had to stay at camp and play dog sitter. The bees were really bad this year so I highly recommend carrying wasp traps in your camping gear.
July 15 Mosquito Haven by stonetrails
The miniature, winged, blood-sucking, vulgarities are abundant and thirsting for your soul. I needed a transfusion after my visit.
June 17 Great!
I have gone for year they keep improving the park and it is a great place to swim and fish.
August 9 Great RV Park
This park actually allows an RV owner a little space to spread out and not feel cramped. The spacious lawns are beautifully maintained--no mosquitoes!!

July 1 mosquitos by dave
the park is a beautiful park, but the mosquitos were so bad, all day and night, that we could not enjoy our stay. we left early.
June 25 Mosquito Heaven
Beautiful wildlife, beavers, bunnies, and fish. Mosquitos were so bad we left early. Even ate through out outer clothing. Also lots of weird little black spiders that like to crawl on you. Lots of ants in tent camp. Also tent camp smelled like dirty sanikan all day, and no grassy areas in tent camp, only in RV area. This could be a great campground if they put more work into it.
June 15 Mosquitos by Pat
Beautiful park. We wont go back the Mosquites were so bad we left early. We were so ate up that all we did was itch. something has to be done. There is to much standing water that is a haven for Mosquites.The camp ground was well keep just did not enjoy the pest.

June 15 Plan for mosquitos by Trace
The park is an oasis in the scrublands. The lawns are well maintained and the facilities are decent. Unfortunately the mosquitos also like this area and are thick. Bring spray adn cintronella and screened tents, etc.
May 12 I loved it
the place is amazing for family fun. I have been going here since I was a kid and now I am taking my own children and looking forward to a wonderful trip
April 5 extreamly bad a** by rangerfan1984@aemailsomewhere.
hot chicks, great fishing, clean water, the resort was not that great. everything was WAY over priced for how old it was. the bathrooms stink and the partys are lame. but who needs the resort!? :D just pick an island and party (responsably). keep our country cleaner than when you got there. Lol.
December 6 preety good by camplover
