My husband and I first found Millersylvania Park several years ago and rented the Lakeside Cottage while on vacation from Alaska. Once we moved to Washington, we made a point of renting the cottage again, even though we live nearby. It is right on the lake, very private and quiet. Linens and dishes are provided, so it's easy to move... More

We returned for a day trip to Millersylvania State Park. It is a fee use state park both for day use and for camping. There is beautiful trees and a lake. It is a popular place for kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming and hiking. It is abundant in old-growth Cedar and Fir Trees. We have camped there in the past. There... More

This is a park located within 20 minutes of Olympia. If you are a traveler, there are campgrounds but if you are a local, you can go and enjoy the day at the lake. It is a beautiful spot and there are hikes, swimming, boating, fishing and picnicking. A wonderful way to spend the day.

We've camped here three times while enroute to visit our kids in Oregon. The bathrooms are clean and the lake is a beautiful reflective place. We enjoy camping amid the trees. On the occasions we camped there we found the park to be quite family friendly.

We camped overnight during the busiest time of the year. The camp sites were just as one would expect, busy and noisy. Just the same, the camp site was convenient and nice, a bit small, which was okay also. All being said, the camp sites were clean, fire wood was available for minimal purchase, showers were available..token operated. Depending on... More

I have been coming here with my family and friends since I was a child...long time ago !! You can rent a boat, swim & play in the roped safety area including free borrowing of life vests. A snack bar is open in summer at the second swim area closest to the boat launch. The state operates a rental home... More

A great park in Thurston County. Nice picnic area, swim area. Camping available. You need to either have a discovery pass or just buy a day pass.

Handy swimming spot not too far from where I was staying. Though it was the middle of the summer and hot it was not too busy here. There are good public changing rooms which were clean and tidy plus a handy cafe for simple drinks and snacks etc. As with all US parks the area was spotlessly clean and extremely... More

We stayed in the Pampered Wilderness property at the park. The park is very well kept and has a beautiful lake with wonderful swimming and boating access. There are several picnic areas and picnic kitchens. The campground is very large and very crowded. If you want a quieter experience, go on the weekend. We stayed until Monday and 80% of... More
