Mayfield Lake Park and Campground
Campground Description: Mayfield Lake Park and Campground is owned and operated by Tacoma Power. Mayfield Lake Campground is an outstanding family tent and RV camping facility. The Mayfield Lake Campground in broken into 2 areas within the same campground - the upper area (camping sites 1 through 41) and the lower camping area (camping sites 42 through 54). The lower area is on the lake (all on the lake except site 49) affording the campers to be able to fish from their camping spot. Be aware that the lower area is somewhat congested with a very sharp bend in the road that could not be negotiated by a 35 foot or larger motor home or a truck pulling longer than a 28 foot trailer. Mayfield Lake Campground also offers a 12-unit group camping area. All of the RV camping and tent camping spots are well maintained and landscaped. Adjoining the Mayfield Lake Campground is the Mayfield Lake Park. The park offers acres of lawn, shelters, boat launches, a swimming area with a sandy beach, volleyball courts and horseshoe pits. Open for camping April 15 through October 15. The Mayfield Park is open year round. Camping reservations are possible and strongly recommended during the warm months.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
