Schafer State Park is a public recreation area straddling the Satsop River midway between Olympia and Aberdeen in the Satsop Hills of Mason County, Washington. The 122-acre (49 ha) state park offers camping, two miles of hiking trails, fishing (especially for steelhead), swimming, birdwatching, interpretive activities, wildlife viewing, and horseshoes. The park's abundance of historic structures led to its being added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.Add Schafer State Park and other attractions to your Elma trip itinerary using our Elma online travel route planner.

Schafer State Park reviews
This is such a lovely, peaceful park. The West trail was much prettier than the East. Old stone buildings and very nice picnic shelters in the day use area.

Very pretty with lots of trees along river. Best for smaller rv’s or tents. There are a few spots with utilities, but mostly dry camping. We did get a 44ft 5th wheel into one of the larger spots...

This state park is simple yet a stones throw from the river. The facilities are extremely well kept. I was highly impressed with the upkeep of the restrooms. We stopped by for a 1 night impromptu camping trip. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. My favorite part was the easy access to the river. It's literally a few feet from the campsites. Great family place and great for a couples rustic get away.
Great little State Park. Spaces are nice and wide. Definitely not a park for really long rigs. They are a little close together in the utility loop. The bathroom is very old and has old stone charm. There is river access in the park and makes for fun times. I would stay again.
