Dates: 4/7 – 4/9/2017; 4/15-4/16/2017; 5/5-5/7/2017
Site:35E – Tricky to get into with a large camper (26′). Fire pit is on the “wrong” side of the camper.
Site 36E – Up the hill from 35E – Firepit is on the correct side of the camper! Nice Site.
Site 18E – Nice flat site but a little tight to get into
Sites to try: 34 – Big but near garbage & road, 18, 20, 33, 25 (non-electric but nice overlook), 29 (next to bathhouse, but a nice site)
Weather: Warm 60 – 70 degrees
Sakatah Lake State Park has two loops of 14 electric sites. We have stayed in three different sites and have liked all three of them. Our 26 ft camper can be a tight squeeze in most of these sites, but we were able to get in with plenty of room for our screen tent and to sit around the fire.
We found the rangers and the camp host to be very friendly. The bathrooms are clean and in good condition. The sites are not too close together. You still feel as if you have some privacy from your neighbors, however there are a few sites where you could camp with friends close enough to share your campsites.
There is a beautiful paved walking/biking trail that is wide enough to accommodate traffic in both directions. The path meanders through the woods and along the banks of the lake. There is a nice sitting area with picnic tables and bathrooms, so if your walk in the woods includes a picnic you are in luck! There are also some unpaved trails for those who prefer the more rugged hiking experience. The park also has a fishing pier and boat launch area.
