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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

We camped in this quiet, pretty and roomy park in a 41' 5th wheel on a super premium pull through site which was very roomy, gravelled and had a large amount of open space to each side of us. Check-in was quick, efficient and carried out by a very nice young lady who waited for us and showed us to our site.
The water, power(50, 30 & 20 amp), sewer and cable connections are all easily accessed and were easy to hook up to. We had cable as part of the super site fee and there were over 60 channels. WiFi worked well and was very fast and I was able to stream TV on my laptop.
Our site had a large metal fire pit and grate which we did not use due to a fire ban, we also had a large wooden cabana with a picnic table and bench seating and we had our bbq under here.

There is one main bathroom block in the centre of the resort and this was always clean and well maintained, it is easily accessed for those with mobility issues.

There is a clean laundry which costs $1.50 for a wash and 25c per 10 minutes for the dryer.
There is some noise due to the planes from the naval air station at Whidbey Island. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Great shopping around 20 minutes away - includes Camping World, Costco and other Big box stores. In Anacortes there are a couple of large supermarkets and take away places or restaurants.
Wonderful beaches and pass to visit only minutes away.

I rated this park a 10 as it is one of the nicest parks we have been in. FHUs 50 amp with excellent wifi service and cable tv in back in site. This park is cut out of a rain forest and they left as many trees as possible, Hemlock ,spruce and sequoia towered above us and surrounded us in our large site. We enjoyed watching the Hummingbirds visit our neighbors feeder, so did our indoor cat. We reserved 4 days over the Memorial day weekend but extended as we liked the park so well. We do not use parks bathrooms or laundry as we have our own so can not comment there. Many families were in the park over the holiday and kids used playgrounds but it was relatively peaceful where we were. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely come back here if we are in the area. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We traveled by car to nearby islands by road to enjoy sights of harbors and bays. We also took a day trip to N. Cascades N.P. which had beautiful mountain and waterfalls scenery.

Love Pioneer Trails. Nice and quiet park. Nice playground for the grandchildren. Bathrooms are clean spacious and are free. It would be nice if they added a pool! We have returned several times. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice beaches, Deception Pass and whale watching too.

The price stated is for a week for a premium spot and includes the high Washington state tax. Best, by far, to pay the monthly rate if you will be staying long. Overall, this is a fine campground for exploring in and around Anacortes. There were times during the day that the military planes could be heard and also nearby trains. However, nights were very quiet, and we slept with the windows open. The park was not full when we were there either so we had some privacy and our site was very large. Some of the interior roads can be a bit tight for large rigs (ours is 45 feet) but are doable. Many of the shady spots are taken by long-term renters and most appeared to be used only on weekends. Everything was clean and well taken care of. The main problem we had was intermittent WII FI. It was either moving along fine or screeching to a halt. We resorted to using our phones most of the time. So it's irritating to pay a rather high price for a site with iffy WII FI. As others have mentioned, it's a bit dicey, even in a car, getting on highway 20. They really need a stoplight there. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I would actually give it 4.5 stars. We have RV camped in numerous sites around WA and this is one of the better. The spaces have plenty of room. The entire campground its clean and the staff is very attentive and friendly. I will go back and highly recommend the facility. Note: you must be careful exiting from the site onto the highway. Vehicles travel quickly on that road. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice campground well kept, in a good area, room for the largest of RVs. The young man that's is campground host is so polite and helpful. Nice playground and large off-leash dog area. Nice on-site store if you need something, and a clean laundry room. Close to everything, my only bad comment is there is a very dangerous left turn coming out of the campground, with no light, hard to pull out with a big rig, but can be done. There are a lot of people living here, but this is a large park and all sites well kept! We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Motorhome.

First let me say that this park could really be a great park. The owner and staff are friendly. But some things need attn. First, laundry room needs upgrading. Second, the roads are dusty and the Lignite that they spray on the roads in mid to late July helps but gets messy when it rains more permanent solution should be found. 5mph speed limit needs better enforcement. There are trees that need to be looked at dead limbs hanging and some trees look dead most of the way up. Last and this is not something they have control over but you need to be careful when getting out onto the main road can be challenging The rate is based on monthly stay we stayed three months but will not be going back. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate posted with this review is for a super premium pull through site before tax. I am not aware of any discounts such as GS or AAA. The first thing I noticed upon arrival was the large open space just inside the property line. This enabled me to park our 41' 5er easily without obstructing anyone else. Check-in was effortless and conducted by an extremely polite and courteous site host. He then proceeded to escort us to our site, despite it being in view of the main office. Nothing appeared too much trouble for this gentleman who assisted in guiding us so that we sat perfectly in our enormous, treed pull-through site. The crushed gravel pad must be at least 80' long and plenty wide enough for our five slides and awning to be deployed without any interference from the trees or shrubs. All of the neighboring sites were empty but there is plenty of room and the trees allow for a feeling of privacy. The whole resort is very 'big rig' friendly. Water, power(50, 30 & 20 amp), sewer and cable connections are all well placed and functioned perfectly. I had forgotten about the cable service prior to our arrival so that was an added surprise. Our site was also equipped with a large metal fire pit and grate as well as a large wooden cabana with a picnic table and bench seating. Each site also has their own garbage bin. I don't know how often these are emptied as I never saw it happen but I do know mine never contained waste for long. WiFi worked well and was very fast but then we were directly opposite the antenna. There is one main bathroom block in the centre of the resort. This requires a numerical code to access but once inside everything is spotlessly clean. The whole unit is well lit and professionally tiled. There is another washroom (not shower) attached to the back of the office block which appears to be available during office hours only. Also attached to the office building is the laundry. $1.25 for a wash and .25c per 10 minutes in the dryer. All washrooms, laundry and office are easily accessible to those with mobility difficulties. For the kids there is a playground area with climbing frames. I also saw horse shoe pits for the adults and there is a short nature walk (no bikes) in the woods around part of the resort perimeter. The whole resort is wrapped up in mixed cedar and deciduous, mature trees giving a definite 'woodsy' feeling. The office stocks some groceries and RV supplies. Propane is available at what I considered to be a very reasonable rate ($15) for a new, empty 20lb tank. Within striking distance is Camping World, Costco, Wal-Mart, Safeway and an outlet mall. There are way too many other attractions in the area to list. The only negative for this entire area and every campground, resort or site (within a 30 - 40 mile radius) is the noise of jet aircraft taking off and landing at the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. They resumed their training flights earlier this year after a moratorium lasting about 7 months. Occasional (30 or so per day) flights go from about 10am until midnight, four or five days a week. Again, this isn't a slight on this RV resort. The noise will affect everyone for many miles around so I haven't deducted an score for that. Despite this, I would most certainly stay here again when next in the area. This is a fantastic resort with excellent staff. Thank you for providing such a great service.

This is one of our favourite parks to camp at; we used to have a tent trailer and they were just as friendly then as now when we have a big trailer. Staff are super kind. Note, they only take cash or debit (but if you're Canadian, your debit card may not work) - they were nice enough to let us stay the first night trusting that we would hit the bank for some cash on the second day. Restrooms/showers are really clean. Dog off leash area is not huge but is more than adequate. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very fine accommodations at this park. Very clean, groomed, all the infrastructure (power, Wi-Fi, cable TV) functioning perfectly. The staff was super helpful without being intrusive. Frankly, it would be nice if we could expect this type of facility and service at more "RV Resort" locations. We have had enough negative experiences that it makes an experience like Pioneer Trails the exception rather than the rule. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The rate reflected is the monthly rate+electric+propane for an extended stay during the winter months. This is a very clean, well maintained park with sites in the open and some nestled among the trees. Management and employees were very friendly and accommodating to your needs. They take a lot of pride in keeping the park clean and are constantly picking up pine cones and branches that may have fallen after a storm. The minuses for a park this size are not enough washers and driers (4 of each) and the hour that the laundry is open. We are early risers but had to wait until 9:00AM for the laundry to open. WiFi was good until they had some work done (believed they switched carriers) and then it was poor. If there was a swimming pool and/or a hot tub we would have given them a higher rating. It's unlikely we will return to Anacortes but if we did we would definitely return to Pioneer Trails. We camped at Pioneer Trails RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
