Rainbow Ridge

4 sites 繚 RVs, Tents6 acres 繚 Montesano, WA
Rainbow ridge itself is largely comprised of the three houses on property as well as the surrounding woodlands. Its area spans fifty acres of elevated terrain surrounded by a forest creek (where crawdads can be found). The camping area is on about five acres of the property and is populated by alders and evergreens, making it a wonderful place to connect with nature. It's a beautiful area sure to soothe the soul. A short but captivating nature trail is open to campers who are interested in a walk up the gentle hill. We do have a composting toilet and water available for washing. A hot shower will be installed soon. A couple of more sites are in the plans. Nearby is the quaint town of Montesano. Lake Sylvia is there for those looking to discover one of our lovely state parks. Closer by, there is a river with boat launch that runs down and through Montesano for people who want to swim, fish, float, or boat. Montesano's central location in Grays Harbor allows it to serve as a wonderful base of operations for those looking to explore more of the coast, and northwestern peninsula. The way up to Rainbow ridge is a short winding driveway of somewhat steep grade, delivery trucks have no problems, so if you have a small camper or less, you should be fine.

The best camping near Lake Sylvia State Park guide

Overview

About

This sweet lake makes you feel as if you've found a second home. Swimming is safe for kids. The lake's even small enough for you to kayak the whole thing before you get really tired.

Take your fishing gear out in your canoe or kayak to snag some trout for dinner. Or just have fun watching the river otters play. You can bring an electric-powered boat, but heads upno gasoline-powered engines are allowed.

Of course, that just makes this lake all the more blissfully peaceful. You can rent a kayak if you forgot yours. This former logging camp near the town of Montesano still has the original logging trails, which are great for mountain biking.

Tent camping is your first choice here. There are only four partial hookups for RVs of up to 30 feet (plus a dump station). Choose from 31 campsites, or hike into another half dozen.

A group campsite for 50 makes this rustic lake an ideal choice for your family reunion or getaway with friends.

Notable campgrounds

  • Standard Campsites: Nestled in the forest, these sites are perfect for tent or RV camping, with a maximum length of 30 feet.
  • Partial Hookup Sites: Offering added convenience, these sites include some utilities for a more comfortable camping experience.
  • Primitive Walk-in Sites: For those seeking solitude, these sites provide a rustic camping adventure away from the main campground.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early, especially for peak summer months, as sites fill up quickly due to the park's popularity.
  • Consider visiting during the shoulder seasons for better availability and a quieter experience.
  • Check for cancellations regularly, as plans change and spots may open up unexpectedly.
  • Explore nearby camping options to ensure you have a backup plan in case the park is fully booked.

When to go

The best time to visit Lake Sylvia State Park is during the summer, from 8am to dusk, when the weather is warm and all facilities are open. Winter visits offer a peaceful atmosphere, but with limited hours and services. Avoid burn bans and check for seasonal closures before planning your trip.

Know before you go

  • Always keep dogs on a leash and clean up after them to maintain the park's natural beauty.
  • Fires are permitted only in designated areas; check for any active burn bans before lighting one.
  • Accessibility is a priority, with ADA-accessible campsites and restrooms available for visitors.
  • Remember to purchase a Discover Pass for park entry, available for $30 annually or $10 for a one-day pass.
  • For a smooth visit, familiarize yourself with the park's rules and amenities by reviewing the official website or contacting the park directly.
