We found this park to be wonderful for visiting the area. Spaces up top were a little close, some were in full sun but if you can get on D or E row they are shady, quite spacious, some are deluxe and have a covered patio. Sites are pretty level. Best dog walk I've ever seen, grassy with trees, huge. Also have large playground area, horshoes, etc. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Heard good things about this RV park so we made our reservation. I'm glad that we did, it's a beautiful place and was the perfect way to make sure that we were able to catch the morning ferry to Vancouver Island. I agree with others who said it reminds them of a state park instead of a commercial facility. Great location for Deception Pass, Whidbey Island, and the ferry to Victoria. Large, level space between beautiful old trees. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Really, the only negative thing was the great number of low flying Navy jets overhead, but then again, the cost of freedom... My only caution would be to those who would annoyed or bothered by the constant air traffic. Military jets are usually VERY loud, and when they're coming in 2 minutes apart (well into the night/early morning) it can make for a very restless night. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Upon arrival we found the owners very friendly and approachable. Check-in was easy but they only take cash or debit; after which we were escorted to our site and assisted in getting positioned. Our site was a level, gravel pull-thru approximately 75' x 25' with 30/50 amp power, water, sewer & cable 58 channels. All utilities are about half way along the pad that worked well for our set up and connection points on the 5er. We also had a fire ring & picnic table. Separation between sites is done with mature trees and low ferns. The bathrooms continue to be very clean and well stocked. During our 7 night stay I would estimate the park remained at about 95%+ capacity. I did notice the pads were raked and cleared of leaves almost immediately they became vacant. It can get dusty but only if people drive too fast or 45' DP comes by. There are lots of garbage bins, which are regularly emptied. The office/store is well stocked with RV spares and some groceries and I noticed tea/coffee was available. The park does accept mail on your behalf but it is your responsibility to check for its arrival. The owners are helpful about local events and suggestions for activities. We found the park peaceful, not at all noisy except for occasional yapping dogs, which is the fault of their owners for not having control of their mutt. The park has a mixture of sites (back-in, pull through) gravel and dirt pads some very long (we have 40' fifth wheel with a full sized truck and still had space to spare). For children there is a nice grassed area and play frame and grassed space near the picnic shelters. Some guests are seasonal or have purchased a site but all friendly and not aloof. Wi-Fi (included in the price) is available at the sites and worked well during our time here. There is limited recycling for cardboard & cans. Propane refills can be purchased here. Clean laundry with limited opening times. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Whale watching with Island Adventures. Beach walks at Rosario Beach & Washington Park. Camping World, Wal-Mart & Costco about 20 minutes drive. Cheap fuel @ casino. Military jets fly overhead but that impacts the whole area, not just this park. Difficult at times to get back on to the main road due to traffic flow. Get in left lane very early before turning towards Oak Harbour, especially if arriving late afternoon.

Would have rated the park much higher but gave a 7 due to the DUST. The park roads are "extremely dusty". Lots of permanent residents. TV Cable was good. Compared to other RV parks in the area this park is slightly better. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed our week-long stay here. It's a large park. The sites vary from shaded (A-C loops) to out in the open. Our pull-through site had a steep front, but level back. Owners very helpful in addressing issues. Very convenient to the Anacortes ferry. Would stay again. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is very convenient to the Anacortes. The Rockfish Grille in town has absolutely the best food. Visit La Conner, which is a fun town with good restaurants, and an amazing woodcraft store. There's also easy to get to kayaking at Bowman Bay. Be sure to visit old Cookeville on the east shore of Whidbey. The Camping World is about 20 miles east in Burlington. A cost-saving suggestion for visiting Friday Harbor is to park your car at the Anacortes ferry terminal and walk-on.

Disappointment is the word we would use to rate this park.

Not sure, but I think the excellent reviews come from the residents of the Park, which are about 90%. I had very high hopes for this park. The two positive notes, is they actually had wifi that worked, and the cg staff was quite nice. Other than that, most of the residents were very unfriendly. They have the attitude they own the park. The resident children were completely out of control, riding their bikes at breakneck speeds, without helmets, screaming loudly, and rude, and the parents didn't seem to care. Sites are pretty small. There is no view of anything except your neighbor. The park is very dusty. Not a speck of grass at any of the sites. Washers are newer, and are $1.75. We were ready to leave after the first few days, but they have you trapped, since you pay ahead, and they will prorate to a daily rate if you leave early. Thank goodness, we weren't there much. We will DEFINITELY NOT return. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Some sites are in trees and spacious, while most are basically a gravel parking lot. Lots in the park are being sold so expect the latter. The overall facility is clean and well taken care of, except for severe dust problem due to interior gravel roads. Did not use the restrooms. Laundry had new washers but with only 4 of them, short hours and a big park, several attempts were needed to get use. For us, the big plus was a large fenced dog area. There are also children play areas but that didn't apply to us. Would probably look for another park if staying in this area again. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Great place to stay. Very wooded, beautiful grounds, spaced appropriately, etc.

They have dog breed paranoia. When you check in they go over a no breed / no mix list. Our dogs are mutts and this made us very uncomfortable because they said they kick people out if the feel the dog is that mix. I should have asked them to look at them before signing in. We had no issue after this, but know before you go.

They do not take credit cards. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a superb park. Gravel roads and gravel pads. We prefer solid surfaces, but their roads/pads are fine. Tons of trees, but none in the way when driving our big-rig through the park. Spaces are varied, but many (including ours) are spaced well apart. Hookups worked great. Super friendly staff to show you to your site. It's a really, really nice place. We'll definitely be back.

This park is located just south of Anacortes, WA and just off Highway #20. On arrival we received a friendly welcome and were escorted to our site. Fees are payable with cash or debit card. The park is quite large with many long-term residents. Some of the sites are owned by campers who use them as seasonal sites or rent them out to the public. The roads are wide and covered with fine gravel so can be extremely dusty. Our site was large, level, wide open, back in, and with easy access. The E/W/S connections are well-placed including cable television. The site has a fire pit and picnic table. The shower house is a long walk from our site. We would stay here again.

Would have given a perfect rating but it was not satellite friendly. However, the cable was very good. Good Wifi. Inner roads were gravel and tended to get dusty. Staff was very friendly and arranged for a wash job for our rv. Nice woody park with good sized sites. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The folks at Pioneer Trails did a great job of helping us into our site, particularly important for us newbie campers. The campground was clean & well managed, although there's not much to do within the campground. Best if you have a vehicle to tour other attractions. Fenced dog park was GREAT and our particular site was quiet and close by. We appreciated not being placed with the party crowds and thank them for allowing us to change the location of site at the last minute. Hookups were well positioned. Some sites have more shade than others and are more private. Pull-through sites are fairly close together. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The posted rate is for eight nights in a Super Site and excludes tax. There are no discounts for weekly rates or memberships such as GS. This is our second consecutive year coming back to this rather superb RV resort in the North West part of WA State. As soon as we pulled up at the office, the camp host was there to greet us before I'd even switched off the engine. Check-in was effortless and we were then escorted to our site and assisted in getting the perfect position. The Super Site was level and long enough for our 41' 5er and truck, with room to spare. The hook ups worked perfectly with good water pressure and a stable 50-amp service. This site also comes with approximately 60 channels of cable TV that was crystal clear. The wifi is included in the price and did not require any passwords or userid. We had a good, consistent level of service for our needs. We did lose service for two days but so did 90% of the area after a severe storm struck. Super Sites also come with a lit gazebo and picnic table on a concrete base. Our site was nicely nestled in amongst some mature conifer trees, holly bushes, ferns and rhododendrons. The roads and sites are compact gravel. There is one central washroom block that requires an access code. Once inside, the showers are professionally tiled and very clean. There are plenty of garbage bin around the resort and they do have some limited recycling. The washing machines are $1.50 per load and dryers 25c for 10 minutes. There is a meeting room of sorts; children's play area and a camp store for last minute essentials and forgotten items. Apart from the Super Sites, there is a broad selection of other sites available throughout the resort. Sections A, E, F, G , H and some of D appear more open and suitable for those with satellite tv. Sections B & C are more woodsy. Some seasonal guests but everyone, including the staff, were friendly and helpful. We will definitely return. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great whale watching tours with Island Adventures from Anacortes. Some good beaches (gravel) at Rosario Beach and Washington Park for short walks by the ocean. Costco, Camping World and Wal-Mart about 20 minutes drive east at Burlington. Safeway at Anacortes. Diesel and gas available from a nearby casino that has pumps dedicated to RV's and the best price around.
