I did not stay at this location, and in fact I do not have a vehicle that quallifies under the user agreements. However, for those seeking a longer term "camping" experience with a larger recreational vehicle, this location may prove useful.
Located next door to Millersylvania State Park, and right on Deep Lake, this "Recreational Vehicle Resort" is adult only, limited to recreational vehicles that are 26 feet or longer, and other restrictions apply.
The state park camping facilities allow only a 10 consecutive day maximum stay, which may be extended in the off-season.
If you have a vehicle that qualifies under the 26 foot or greater requirement, the long term stay allowed at this "recreational vehicle resort" may be of interest. This facility is set up for monthly site rental. Laundry facilities are also available here, as well as other facilities that would be expected in a longer term facility.
The price per night is actually slightly cheaper than the state park campground if the stay is for an entire month, not including the electricity charges that are metered and depend on actual use.
Be sure to read the tenant agreement on the web site to make sure you qualify.
I did not stay in this guest house, but the information has been put here for the information of others.
NOTE: A two night minimum stay is required here.
Certain state parks have more than just the standard camping facilities available in them, and Millersylvania State Park happens to be one such park: there is a single vacation home available for rent in the state park.
The house was built in the 1920s, just before the land was donated to the state to become a state park. The house has been rebuilt to more modern standards.
The rated capacity is six guests, and there is a single bathroom and single kitchen.
The prices vary depending on the season, currently ranging from $178 per night to $238 per night, depending on the estimated demand, and this price does not include taxes. If you can get six people, this comes to about $40 per night, which beats about any hotel in the area - which won't have the privacy.
Overlooks deep lake.
Has fences and a gate around it with only overnight guests permitted in the area around the house, so privacy is better than may be found at the camp sites.
I did not stay in this campground, but I can tell you that on some weekends it is an extremely popular place, and the fact that it is close to Olympia only makes it a very popular place for people to go.
There are standard camp sites which only feature a spot that may be large enough to pitch a tent. There are also sites available at a higher price that include utility hookup. Extra cars cost $10 each. A maximum of 8 people may occupy a camp site, and if you are brining more than that there is a group camping area that is intended for larger groups.
One or two of the utility sites are designed for those with longer trailer combinations and are pull-through sites. However, there are only a few of those.
There are 120 standard camp sites and 48 utility hookup camp sites.
Some of the camp sites are in deep forest, while others are in an open clearing area.
Firewood is offered for sale in the park, but is also available in nearby Marysville.
A small store is operated in the park and is open on certain days, and may be useful if you find you are in need of certain vital supplies - though there stock is limited.
There are discounted prices during the off-season. See the web site for more information.
