Packwood RV Park and Campground, July 6 to July 13, 2016

Rating: 3.5 on a scale of 5

Location:  This was the perfect location to visit Mount Rainier National Park via the Stevens Creek Entrance (about 12 miles). We also visited Mount St. Helens (about 50 miles) from here. This park is in the very small town of Packwood and is within walking distance to everything in town (library, visitor center, post office, restaurants, shopping, and other businesses) which is very convenient. Our primary purpose in visiting this part of the country was to go to Mount Rainier NP, so this worked out very nicely for us. 

Lot size:  We had a huge site (#10) with lovely shade trees with water, sewage, and 30-amp power. It was located at the end of the row on Main Street, so we had no neighbors on one side. 

There were rigs of all sizes here with plenty of room to accommodate all. Tent sites are also available and we saw multiple folks traveling on motorcycles who stayed for a night here. 

Amenities:  The park has good wifi (which was wonderful since we had no AT&T cellular coverage for miles) and sites 1-39 have cable TV. (Sites 40-87 are closed for the winter.) There is a group fire pit and plenty of room for other activities. We used the laundry room (3 washers and 3 dryers) which worked out nicely for us. The bathrooms are located in the same building on the other side, although we did not go into them. 

Cost:  $204/week with Good Sam discount.

Management:  The folks that run this place are very friendly and do a great job managing the park. Everyone was very helpful and very nice. They do not take credit cards, only check or cash. 

General Comments:  When we first pulled in I was not that impressed with the park, but we really enjoyed our stay here. We had plenty of privacy and enjoyed the ability to walk around town. If we visit Mount Rainier again in the future we will likely stay here again.
