Our family camped here on our way to Seattle. We made reservations, but when we arrived the campground wasn't full so we were asked if we would like to change our site for one "along the river." When we pulled into our site, it was right next to the Yakima River which is a small, tree-lined river. From our campsite we enjoyed watching birds flying along the water, and several rafters floated by us as well. If you stay here consider asking for one of these sites.
This is a fairly small campground with basic facilities. The bathrooms are older but were clean. It is a short drive to Ellensburg where you can find a few privately owned shops.
