Had a great stay, staff on our second visit were great and handled any problem quickly.

The person (looked like he is the manager of the camp site) was rude. When we arrived at 3:30 PM the office was closed, and it was closed at 6 PM in spite of 7 pm closure on the sign in front of office.


I'm sorry that you had such a bad experience; however, I being Mary, am the Manager here at the KOA, so I'm not sure who you had a bad experience with.

The campground was very clean and well groomed. The staff was professional and courteous. The camping space was pretty small, but but I understand the need to have as many spaces as possible. The only drawback was a very roudy group that stayed up into the wee hours of the morning and nothing was done about quieting them.

Arrived around 9:30pm and there was no reservation for us on the board, as the office was already closed for the night. Luckily we found a tent site that was available, but it backed on to a road. You were probably about 15 feet above the road but it was directly at the end of our tent site. I had a terrible sleep. As the cars raced by, I was constantly woken up. There was no fire pit. Brooms clea

Very friendly staff. Would totally recommend staying there. The only draw back is there isn't a lot of privacy, wasn't a problem for me, but may be for some.

I enjoyed spending time with your family and staff everything was fantastic your staff and your family took really great care of my family and made our trip worth it. I would recommend this KOA to everyone I know and meet I know that the vet and the military would love to know about your camp grounds thank you so much your friends and now family wishes you the best

We had a great time even though it rained. Bathrooms were very clean (very much appreciated), playground close to camp sites. I only gave it 4 because camp sites are really small and tight. We had fun "neighbors" so that worked out. Great camp for exploring Mt. St. Helens from. Thank you again for the free Sunday doughnuts :) We would stay again.

Upon our arrival we were greeted my Mary with a warm smile. The site that was reserved for us was not large enough to accommodate our tent but Mary fixed that by finding us a larger one. On our second night there was a LARGE group in the 2 spaces across from us - VERY LOUD & DISRESPECTFUL! We enjoyed are stay & are looking forward to returning & seeing new things in the future.

It felt like pitching a tent in a parking lot, not a campground. There wasn't even room for our picnic table to be flat. Why not have enough fire pits for everyone.


If you are not happy with your site just come in and talk with the office staff and they will be more than happy to help possibly move you to a different site that would better suit your needs. Also we do have a sign on the check in counter about the fire pits, you just have to let staff know

Very friendly staff

Small tent sites( but everything is small with a family of 6 ) clean bathrooms, friendly staff. I would stay again if the opportunity presented itself. :)

Very small site, no fire pits


We do have portable fire pits available. We are sorry that you did not see the sign in the office about the fire pits.

Owners went above and beyond to fix a problem not of their making. Someone had parked their vehicle in our spot and wouldn't cop to it, so they found us a spot to put our tent in a sold out campground and gave us a complimentary fire pit which saved me from stoning by my children. Free doughnuts and coffee on Sunday a nice touch. Maintenance staff extraordinarily helpful.

Very nice :) Liked this quiet camp ground and of course the location being so convenient to Mount St.Helens.

Have not used KOA much in the past, but will definitely use them again in the future. Good campsite at a fair price.

Amazing staff. The manager was so helpful and friendly after a long day of driving. Very refreshing to be greeted with such great people.

Only one: It was not really good, that we did'nt became an Firewoodring... We think, that at least tent- Sites have an claim to became an Ring..

Tent sites were very poor, too close together and not level. Washrooms were shabby and not well kept. KOA seems to have gone downhill in the past five years.
Sep 02, 2013
Although the campground is in a pretty location, the tent sites were uncomfortable -- too narrow, no grass, and no shade. We sweltered during the day and cut our trip short by one night. Our second night there, there was a family of 8 adults and 2 kids crammed in to one site next to us. Friendly staff, but not good for tent camping.

We arrived on site around 7:30 pm. After checking in and went to our site, we still had time to cook and had our dinner at the TV room/kitchen next to the office. The staff is extremely friendly. Would recommend this camp to all my friends. Simon

Great place to park and stay overnight after sightseeing all day. Tent site was very nice and clean, staff friendly and helpful. Traffic was a bit noisy, but after about 11pm was much better.

Very neat and clean! helpful staff. Tent sites are very small and exposed. This KOA is definately geared towards RVs. I'd choose to stay somewhere else if I'm in the area again with a tent.

Camp sites for tents are very small if you have a family with a lot of stuff. Perfect for a couple with a small car. We reserved a large site to accomidate 2 families. When we arrived we were given a small site that was cramped for just 1 family. To their credit they gave us another site free of charge for our friends but it was 2 sites away. I would recommend but make sure you get 2 tent sites.

Staff was awesome and so helpful. Tent sites not great, very rocky and uneven. Quiet time not enforced. Bathroom to far from tent sites

We had a great time. Everyone was very helpful and friendly.

Traveling as single woman, I am able to tent camp without worry at KOA. A little advice: Many travelers nowadays can't afford a fancy RV and are tent camping. Lately, the KOAs I have stayed at do not give much consideration to tent campers. Don't cram us in side by side, have all sites as clean and modern as the RV sites. Tent campers are the new vacationers. Don't miss this growing market.

This site did not have a lot of amenities for tenters but was incredibly clean and well cared for.
Aug 09, 2013
Bathrooms were far away from tent spots, but close to rv spots that have full hookups. Only one working toilet in the bathroom, the other was out of order. All of the spots were packed together like sardines. Roads are narrow. And the tent spots are a hop, skip, and a jump away from the road. The road noise at night in our tent trailer was horrible. Staff was friendly.

Clean, Convienient & Close to everything.

Location is convient from I-5 and well kept. The staff is friendly. Unfortunately not what I had expected when I think of the brand, KOA. Amenities for children are lacking. Lots are really small causing my children to play in the street. No pool or extra perk such as putt putt golf and the play area was more of an after thought.

Good place to stay and we will return. Clean and very nice staff. Bathrooms with showers are very close to the tent sites. Tent sites are level and have enough space to park your vehicle in the same space as your tent.

Just on a personal preference, I like a more woodsy,spred-out, rustic setting for camping. But your facilities were very nice for a large group, as our square dance club needed. You took very good care of us and we had a great time. Thank you.

The campground is small with a few sites for tents, but it's clean. We had a lovely stay. There is free wifi. The bathrooms are quite clean but there are only 2 toilets and 3 showers per bathroom and there are 2 bathrooms for the all camp. One negative point for me is that there isn't a place where you can wash your dishes just 1 sink in a kitchen.

My favorite KOA. I like how the focus is camping and not a million other things. Don't need bike rentals, pools, over priced gift shop candy stores and latte stands. Just want a quiet place to camp while enjoying the scenic beauty.

I like the campground, people and conditions of site and bathroom great,but you are just too close to other campers and the road. The traffic was horribly noisy.
