We drove through campground and decided NOT to stay. Unkept, dirty, old, very close together with many broken down vehicles. Not recommended unless its last place to go. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Nice shady green park. Half of sites are long-term residents in a separate section. RV sites are clean, well maintained, spacious, and grassy. Nice shade, but sky is open for satellite TV. Quiet. Far enough off the main road to eliminate most traffic noise. Nice people at the check-in desk. Will happily stay there again when visiting family in Lynden. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The woman who checked us in seemed a little confused, and the site we ended up in was between families or friends who knew each other, so they kept walking between our unhitched toad and RV rather than walk a few more feet around the back of our site. The neighbor didn't have a sewer hose long enough to reach from his rig to the ground connection, so he kept the hose in the ground and left the end that should go into his rig laying on the ground (sewer gas is not only nasty smelling, it's dangerously unhealthy). They seem to have many regulars and a section of permanent long-term residents. When we emptied our trash we discovered the dumpsters looked as though they hadn't been emptied in weeks -- and the same was true with the recycle containers. We left here to stay at another park in the area and won't be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty muddy in the site we had. Cable was bad. Neighbor had sewer line open and laying on ground. Reported this to office and nothing was done. Sewer gas will kill you if you breath enough of it! Showers were really not taken care of at all while we were there. Will not stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy to miss park since the only sign is right next to the drive. Quiet and shaded park. Sites are side by side so hope your neighbor is compatible. Sewer hookups are difficult since they are on a pad several inches above ground level so uphill battle. Hookups are easier for 5th wheel. Showers and bathrooms get messy after the afternoon pool use. Wi-fi is slow but connection is good. Did not use the laundry. We stayed a week, and if the sewer connection were different, we would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spaces are long and wide on grass. Showers in restroom are pay, although those for the pool are free. Laundry has 2 washers and dryers. One dryer is still out of order. We were here a month earlier and it was out of order then, also. There are a lot of permanents that are segregated from transient RVers. A few of the permanents are not friendly and seem to feel entitled. When the small pool was open, it was filled with those who live there. Rule requiring children to be supervised was not enforced. In spite of the negative comments we give this park a 6 because of the spacious, quiet sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great spot. The pool is a really nice feature. The hosts are not "in your face." They seem to believe everyone is a courteous camper until proven otherwise, an approach we've always appreciated. A lot of the sites are pull through, although some of the ones in the center of the park are almost shoulder to shoulder. If you come here try to get one of the end ones; they have tons of space. The only reason for an 8 and not a 10 is that the WiFi is spotty and the RV dump was locked. Maybe we were supposed to get a key from the office. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I would have rated the park higher except for the side by side hookups and parking on grass which was muddy underneath. They have mowed the park nicely but blew the grass clippings onto the top of the picnic table. It is a quiet park and there are shade trees. We parked at the end away from the office and could not connect to the Wi-Fi. This park has a good location to the border crossing. We would probably stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is only eight miles from the British Columbia border which makes it convenient to travel North. The City of Lynden is a beautifully manicured town with shops, museum, windmills, and many stores to shop in which is only three miles away. The City of Bellingham is about eight miles South. The park itself is clean and the manager is very friendly and helpful with any needs. The Wi-Fi is free but is not accessible from every site due to trees. The laundry is clean and clotheslines are available. Some of the sites are quite close to each other but are very easy to get into and out of and mostly pull thrus with full hookups. The sites are set up so that your neighbor is facing the opposite direction from you thus making your sewers on the opposite side from your patio and picnic table which means you are not having to contend with the smell from your neighbor! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park; nice grass sites with full hookups. Roads are asphalt in good shape so I don't understand previous reviews that spoke of dirt and dust. We spent the night near the back of the park and there was very minimal road noise, maybe the tent sites which are closer to the road would notice the road noise more than we did. The laundry was clean and in good repair. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park only has about 50 sites available for travelers. Pull thru sites have dirt pads that can get dusty. Sites are mostly not irrigated so late in the year grass can be non-existant or dry. WiFi reception is poor and only the first hour is free. There is lots of road noise off the Guide Meridian which is a highly used highway. There is a small lake on the property that is not well maintained and scum filled. A quiet setting is important to me so more than likely I will not stay here again. We stayed in a water/power only site for $21 - they wanted an extra $5 to use their dump station. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground. We stayed here overnight on two occasions. Good laundry facilities and nice pool. Campground has Wi-Fi available, but reception is spotty throughout the park. (Best reception is near the Laundry facility.) One hour of Wi-Fi is free -- unlimited daily use is $2 per day. Would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Hidden Village is a family campground that is opperated by management with great customer skills. The campground is modern, has facilities for kids and adults alike. It is perfectly located near the town of historic Lynden. Lynden is a friendly town. We spent two summers there and I can say for sure that anyone who visits Hidden Village will enjoy their stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very disappointing. Extremely overcrowded. We were assigned a site on the "front lawn." Partial hookups included a 50-foot-long, 30amp extension cord stretched from a pedestal at a "real" site to ours, and two daisy-chained garden hoses from that same site for our water supply. The owners obviously tried to expand the number of campsites without investing in utilities. We left after finding the site unacceptable. Campground policy offers a full refund if you decide to leave within an hour of arrival. Really? Why would they even need such a policy if they were providing satisfactory service? I'll never reserve a site here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice quiet campground. Convenient for visiting British Columbia. The nearby town of Lynden is very convenient and charming. This park is really not near Bellingham though, which is fine, but the name can be deceiving. It is actually a godsend that it is not near Bellingham, given that its much quieter in Lynden. Clean campground and very green, given the North West rainfalls. Definitely check out the ice cream shop in nearby Lynden. Its the best. Would return here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park, albeit crowded. Too many people with pets, but that's becoming a problem everywhere. When we started pulling into the park there were at least 8-10 little kids on bicycles and scooters zooming around the park roads. Be careful! We had a lakefront site, wide and clean. If you don't mind a crowded park, it's great. We were a bit spoiled by the parks "up north" in Canada. Welcome back to civilization. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They have a pool, but no spa. Wi-Fi was POOR, but we were able to use our Virgin Mobile hotspot and even got 4G even though this area is kind of remote. Lyndon is a cute town with Danish influence and is close to the Canadian border. We traveled to Vancouver twice during our stay and the border crossing was backed up a bit when the Canadians are crossing - apparently they come to the US for gas, milk, etc. which is much more expensive in Canada - so fill up your tank before you go there. We stayed here 3 days. Peace. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived just before Victoria Day Holiday (a three-day weekend in Canada) and discovered this is a very popular campground for British Columbians. Even so, the check in person was able to find us a site, and we ended up staying through the long weekend and then added another five days to our stay. The park is pretty, with ponds and trees and lots of grass, and it does get busy on the weekends. Facilities are clean, and the washers/dryers are actually less expensive here (and the dryers did a better job) than a laundromat in town. We'll stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The entrance to this koa is basically one way as the street is very narrow. We got in ok but this could be a big problem for some on a busy day. A place to unhook or hook up your toad may be difficult at times. Lots of dogs and of course what goes along with them (the dog owners who do not pick up, leash up or control their dogs and they are always at every park). The park is well taken care of and has many permanent residents that are mostly from Canada. The Canadians come across the border in droves every day to shop at Costco and Walmart in Bellingham. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very family friendly park with some seasonal spots and other regular sites. We enjoyed our stay. One of the better KOA parks we have been in. Lots of kids which worked fine since we had our grand kids. No recycling which was a surprise and no DVD rentals, also a surprise. Place was packed during our stay so it is very popular. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fun little campground that was perfect as it was nearby for a weekend power camp. The lots we had were spacious and the people were friendly. The movie night was nice by the pond. The washrooms were a bit dirty for KOA standards. This past stay the showers and washroom near our site was closed. The kids had a fun time in the park and pool, which is always a good thing. To my surprise, people were pulling out a bunch of trouts in the pond by the shop. We camped here in a Tent.
Camp personnel were friendly and helpful. The lake and grounds were well kept. The sites were level but tight fits for my 3 slide-outs. The Wi-Fi would not reach my camper even though we were about 100 feet from the office. The pool was nice but was lacking seating or shaded areas. The location was close to the Canadian border for day trips into Vancouver. We would probably stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We only stayed one night on our way to Canada. It is a beautiful park with the lake and beautiful flora. The problems are the narrow roads within the campground, and especially the road you enter and exit on. It is not wide enough for two lanes. One side has hedge, so the vehicle exiting must veer off the road to make room for the incoming vehicle. The park was very noisy, long after quiet hours began. I would think twice before I camped here in a long RV. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were in a 45 foot motorcoach and were lead to believe by the KOA website that there were "supersites" with 50 amps at this campground. We were shoe-horned into a 30 amp pull through site. We had to move to an axillary site for fear that we could not pull through another site to exit the campground and be stuck forever in Lynden Washington. We moved to a site up on the hill that was a back-in that assured us an exit and was in the range of site 51-53 that has a good satellite link and a straight through exit. Big Rigs Beware!! When you turn onto Line Road and into the park it is going to test your driving skills, including the one lane road to the office. Agree with everyone that it is a well-run park totally catering to travel trailers...not fifth wheels or RV's. We did find one 50 amp site that seems to be occupied by a permanent resident--so do not trust your KOA directory! For Big Rigs we're really not sure where to suggest where to go if you are trying to go into Canada for day trips and not drive your Big Rig. BTW, we did not find any big rig friendly sites between Lynden and Vancouver. They may exist but we could not find them. But please go to Canada because they are very friendly and nice people with lots to see and do in British Columbia. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I will give it an 8 for being clean, neat and pretty. I have a 38 ft MH and tow a car. I had to disconnect to get into the pull through and it was a tight fit as I had to move the table, then back and fill to get straight. Trees are not an issue just very narrow roads and site pads between utilities and table. I had to park the car sideways to be able to stay in site. So great place for smaller rigs just not great for big rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our family loves camping for long weekends at the Lynden KOA. The family that owns it cares about their campers and it shows. They offer wonderful activities, the kids love the mini golf, the pool (which is spotless), the pond, the playground... They have a small cafe which serves lunches and coffees. Many weekends through the summer they have special events for families. The small dutch town of Lynden is very quaint and pleasant to walk around. Mount Baker is a half an hour away and the campground is on the doorstep to the Canadian border. Highly recommended! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We love this campground. It's clean, beautifully maintained, big and has a lot of activities for the kids. The pool is very clean and the playground is great. Our son loves the peddle boats and mini golf. The only improvements I would like to see (and they would make it a 10 in my opinion) would be to have full hookups on the lakefront sites and to have cable. We end up here every year and always have a great time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I wouldn't call the waterfront a "lake", more like an artificially colored green pond. When we made a reservation, we could only get a water & elect. site for $33 (good sam disc.), which I thought was pretty pricey for a campground out in the middle of nowhere, but close to the Canadian border. Then I found out we had a "grass front" site, which was basically an afterthought and a way to generate more money. Turns out these are much nicer than being in the main campground because the sites are bigger and the area is quieter. I'm not squashed in next to my neighbor and I'm away from all the screaming kids (main reason I usually avoid KOA's). So I guess I'd stay here again if nothing cheaper was available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great family camping! Lots of activities in and around the campground for kids and adults alike. Clean, secure, friendly staff, kids fishing, paddle boats, manicured sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great campground for families! It is in a quiet, farmland setting. It is very close to the Canadian border. The owners are some of the nicest people we have met. They have a lot of activities during the summer! The sites were clean, level, and as described in our camping book. We will definitely be back with our friends. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though we camped here in 2002 and it was very enjoyable, what happened this past Memorial Day weekend of 2004 is why I am giving this campground a 1 rating. I called the Lynden / Bellinghan KOA 3 months ahead of time and requested a campgsite that
could not only handle my RV but would also have enough space for my son's tent. The person who took the reservation assured me that the campsite assigned to me would fit all of my needs and the reservation was secured with my credit card. I called the Lynden / Bellingham KOA a week ahead of the 2004 Memorial day weekend only to find out that my campsite had been assinged to somebody else and that I had been moved to a campsite that could not accommodate my son's tent. When I asked why I had been moved to a different campsite, the response was that there was somebody who would be staying at the Lynden / Bellingham KOA longer than what I was going to be staying so they gave my site to them. This was not acceptable and I told them that I was cancelling my reservation and that I intend to never camp at the Lynden / Bellingham KOA again. The person I spoke with mumbled some excuse about being sorry and I told him sorry does not cover running a sloppy business. We camped here in a Motorhome.
