Camping in the Northwest - From a family who thought they'd share notes
Alder Lake Park

Reservations through Tacoma Power Parks
 
With its expansive campgrounds and great location, Alder Lake Park makes it easy to answer the call of the wild.  Campers can choose between sites in the 161 acre park offering options for everyone; including traditional tent campers to those who want more of the comforts of home like water, electric and sewer hookups.

Campground.
See the Alder Lake Park brochure here.  

There is a Group Camp Area with 20 sites that have water, electric and sewer. You must reserve at least five sites, so plan ahead for your family reunion, team gathering or any other special occasion that brings people together.  The group camp has kitchen shelters with barbecue grills, sinks and electrical outlets, restrooms with showers and areas for outdoor fun.  

Beaches.
The Stacel Point day-use area offers a great swim beach as it has a great grassy area, and then a sandy beach.  There is a dedicated swimming area outlined by buoys, however no lifeguard is on duty.  Saw speed boats on Alder Lake pulling skiers, etc.  Temperature of water was very favorable. 

The day-use area also offers a playground, open lawn areas, picnic shelter, 45 picnic sites with tables and grills and a bathhouse with showers.  

Boat launch was decent - with a big parking lot to support. Boaters who are camping at the park and want to moor their boats overnight can use the first-come, first-served 20-slip boat moorage dock at the Stacel Point day-use area.  



Trails. 
Information to come

Bikes or No Bikes?
Yes!  Great pavement throughout the park along with some trails.   We felt that it would be a great addition to the park offerings by featuring bike paths and adding them onto the map.

Yes, we are camping.  But we still need the Electronics.
      Service -- decent

Other Notes.
  • When visiting Alder Lake Park you must check out the impressive Alder Dam.  The 330 foot structure, built in 1945, forms the seven-mile Alder Lake.  View the dam from a marked turnoff point on Highway 7 or from right within the park itself.
  • Alder Lake Park offers year-around camping with it being first come, first served during the Fall and Winter months.
