We have camped at the state park at least a half a dozen times. Coming from southern Arizona it's a nice place to cool off. We always stay in the larger Elk Ridge loop. More shade there and close to the playground. The sites a...More
Can't describe the experience. You really have to be there to understand what the mountains are like. Not anyplace like it anywhere. We enjoyed a nice, peaceful walk up and carried down unforgettable images of waterfalls and views indescribable by picture. Go here.
We spent 5 nights in the Elk Ridge section of the campground. The sites are large and spread well apart so you aren't on top of your neighbors and you have lots of privacy. There were lots of nice hiking trails and it is close...More
We spent a week in the full hookup section (Pa Co Chu Puk) and 3 nights in the Elk Ridge section which is electric only. Both were very nice, but the views from up on Elk Ridge were awesome! This state park has so many...More
This is a state park. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Reasonably priced showers. Good experience. Campsites big enough and spaced far enough apart to be comfortable. Grandchildren had a great (and successful) fishing experience.

Dutch Charlie has two areas - Elk Ridge and Dakota Terraces. We stayed there at the end of May 2014 in our 37' 5th wheel. We did not have reservations. We drove through Elk Ridge to look for a site. Most of them did not have a view. There were lots of tall trees. Down below in the Dakota Terraces, the trees were not mature. The views were amazing. The snow capped mountains were on one side and the reservoir was on the other. So, we ended up staying in the Dakota Terraces.
The roads are one-way. So, I guess that is why you were told 1/2 are backwards. It is not really a problem. You can always back in if you would like to face the other way. When you look at the map, just imagine the direction you would be driving to back-in the sites that are not pull-thru. That should help figure out which direction the road is going. Hope that helps. Enjoy!
