Lake Sawyer RV Park Black Diamond, WA

Have you ever stayed at Lake Sawyer RV Park in Black Diamond, WA?  Well, it's setting is beautiful and right on Lake Sawyer.  It's easy to find and wonderfully wooded.

We've stayed at this park several times and spent one whole summer and winter here in 2011-12 because of my needing treatment for breast cancer.  The crew is very friendly and helpful.

There's no many activities going on in the clubhouse.  I love activities like cards, games, crafts and pot lucks.  They do have a pool table and are starting Texas Holdem' along with Bingo in the clubhouse this summer but don't know how long it'll stay on the adgenda.

The spaces are pretty tight with 104 sites with 27 pull through sites.  There are 68 full hookup sites and many are shaded.  Pets are allowed.

We are 40' and they accept our rig but if you check the website:   Lake Sawyer RV Resort , which is the only one I could find with the most information, it says no big rigs.  Like I said, the sites are tight as you can see in the photo.

The do take credit cards for over $20 charge.....not hard to do.  They have 30 and 20 amp only and the power is iffy now and then.  Make sure you don't get put along the back fence if you want the best chance of continuous power.  We haven't had many problems if we don't run too much at once.  Hard to do if you use your AC and it's electric.

There are restrooms, showers and laundry with two washers and two dryers, coin operated.  There is propane for sale on the property.  There is wireless Internet which I believe is Tengonet and there is a fee.  There's cable TV and if you're in the right site, you can use your satellite dish but remember, it is beautifully wooded here.

There is no swimming pool and swimming in the lake at Lake Sawyer RV Resort is not allowed but there is a park on the lake just down the road.  There is a nice little playground and the park is very kid friendly.  There's also a basketball court and horseshoes and paddle boats to rent.

No boat launch but but there is docks with a fee for moorage.  There is a boat launch  in the park down the road.  It is a Sunrise Resort but also open to the public.  The rent cabins also.  

Taken from a website........"Lake Sawyer boasts a year-’round resort in the greater Seattle area. The resort’s spacious ten-acre grounds with tall firs and park-like lawns make it a popular spot for picnics. The club, situated near the western slope of Washington’s Cascade Mountains, has plenty of waterfront on Lake Sawyer, one of the area’s largest natural lakes containing some of the best bass fishing in the state. Enthusiasts will find canoeing and fishing, or just sunbathing and relaxing."
