Camp Lakeview

WE ARE AN ALCOHOL-FREE/DRUG-FREE/WEAPON-FREE CAMP.
We are an alcohol-free facility. We also do not allow drugs or weapons. If any of these things become an issue you may be asked to leave the park. No refunds will be given.

Please help us to keep our campground family-friendly by following our no-alcohol/drugs/weapons policy. Additionally, we ask that you do not use profanity and that you treat other guests and staff with respect and courtesy at all times. Disrespect of any kind will not be tolerated.

Statement of Purpose

Inspired by the setting and in response to God's love, grace, and truth, Camp Lakeview has been designed for fellowship. It is our purpose to provide a personal environment for people of all ages to spend quality time together, away from the pressure of everyday life.


Statement of Faith

In alliance with Christian Camping International, Camp Lakeview affirms the CCI/USA statement of faith as follows:


"We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matter of faith and conduct; the triune God-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His substitutionary atonement for sin, His bodily resurrection, and His personal, visible return to earth to reign in righteousness and glory; the Person of the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction, regeneration, and sanctification, Who indwells every believer, equipping them with gifts of service and witness; the necessity of new birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and the importance of a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ; and the church as the one universal body of Christ Who is the head, called to be God's redeemed people."


Notice of Standing

We trust that groups or individuals using our facilities will not teach, promote, or distribute materials inconsistent with Camp Lakeview's Statement of Purpose and Statement of Faith. We are committed to keeping Camp Lakeview free of alcohol, drugs, and unacceptable behavior and trust that you will respect our convictions.

Lakeview Ball Field

The upper ball field is open to all paid Camp Lakeview guests, not just Lakeview Retreat Center guests. If you are planning to use the field, please be aware that you may have to share the field with other guests. 


Pet Policy
Pets are welcome at Camp Lakeview. They must be leashed (make sure someone is holding the other end of the leash) and cleaned up after at all times. There are pet waste clean-up stations throughout the park for your use. Pets are not allowed in buildings, on the docks or in the swimming areas. Guests with aggressive dogs will be asked to leave. Excessive barkers must be contained as a courtesy to other guests. If a barking dog is not contained, you may be asked to move sites or, in extreme circumstances, will be asked to leave. Do not leave your pets unattended or tied to trees or shrubs. They must be inside your motorhome or tent at night. 


Service Animals

Just as pets are welcome at Camp Lakeview, service animals are as well. Camp Lakeview defines service animals per RCW 49.60.040 and follows this RCW when determining whether a service animal will be allowed in cottages. For safety purposes, we reserve the right to restrict animals of any sort (pets or service animals) from our swimming and fishing docks, as well as the swimming areas and boat launch.


Burn Bans

Please call our front office for current status @ 360-879-5426. In general, if a state-wide burn ban is in effect, you may still be able to have a campfire in our metal fire rings. There is a metal fire ring in each camp site.
