Clean, quiet and well cared for. Lot of waking trails and easy access to the Sataop River. The bathrooms are rustic, but there are showers with hot water.

Schafer is a 120 acre park 10 miles east of Elma, WA, right on the Satsop River. 5 w/e sites are good size, with sites 4 and 5 in the sun. None are completely level. Our site was very large, under beautiful old growth trees. We fished (and caught) from the park. One older bath house (quarters for shower), one park office with small store (ice, wood). Full time park hosts are very friendly and helpful. Fire ban in effect while we were there. All but U4 and some of the dry sites will accommodate up to 38' rig. Huge group site with separate pit toilets and covered picnic area, volley ball field, and bbqs at the back of the park - tents and small campers only. There were families there who have been coming for multiple generations.
Note that the campground is on the right - don't follow GPS to enter on the left - there are very tight stone pillars with barely 15' wide driveway. Also, your tow vehicle must be attached when you enter the campground or pay $10 fee for separate vehicle. They are very strict about this.
Dogs allowed in camp and on trails and in river, all on leash. Wifi worked well - utility sites are close to office. No cell service. We don't have satellite.
