Nothing special about this park, as others have reviewed. The park is conveniently located, right off I-90, which also contributes to the noise factor. We were camping in a 24' travel van, so we're given a space right across from the office. At first, we were unhappy with this location, then came to realize it was the best for least road noise. No privacy whatsoever and no picnic table, but this was not that kind of trip. Two nights here was plenty, but we spent all day outside the park. It's not a place you want to hang out in. Good for what it was, though. There is an indoor pool and large laundry room, which we didn't use. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.
This is an urban RV park. The sites are very close, completely paved so no grass, some trees and the majority are permanent residents. There is a play area for children and an indoor pool which we did not use and I am not sure is open for use. If you are a light sleeper or traveling with dogs that require a mile long walk this is not the RV park for you. The dog walk area is outside the RV park gate on 1 side only and measures approximately 100'X25'. There are waste bags readily available but some ignorant owners feel they do not have to comply and I find that disgusting. There is a sidewalk that you can walk your pet but it borders business's and once again some left dog waste.
There is non-stop road noise from very busy I-90 that is next to the 2 one way roads in front of the RV park. If you require quiet surroundings to get to sleep this is not the RV park for you.
The people at the office are very helpful with information on getting into Seattle etc.. We opted to drive the short distance to the East Gate park & ride and ride the express bus into Seattle each day. You can walk or ride you bike to this location also. We are both in our 60's and the fare is $1 per person each way and parking is free. Great deal when you do not have to deal with all the traffic going into the city and premium price to park your car. The people in the RV office will provide you with paperwork detailing bus times & stops. One word of advice is to arrive at the park & ride before 11 AM otherwise you may not get a parking spot.
This RV park fit our needs which was to be close enough to Seattle to avoid an hour long commute. We hired a dog service to come to our motorhome twice a day to walk our dog to allow us flexibility. This worked perfectly.
We would stay here again if we find ourselves in this area again. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
A short walk or drive away is Albertsons, Walgreens, Pizza Hut and Outback.
Stayed in this parking lot due to proximity to Seattle. Spaces are tight, rough, cracked asphalt. Not much shade. Swimming pool was out of commission when we were there. As in most parks, lots of long term residents.
There is a dog walk with grass and pickup bags available but not everyone bothers to pick up after their dog.
The park is very convenient to Seattle. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.
We stayed at the Travel Inn for 4 days in our 40' RV. The web site and google earth are very misleading. Out of all the parks we have stayed in across the lower 48, this is the worst. It is mostly extended travelers or full time residents. They are crammed in so tightly that it is hard to get into and I have been into some tight spots. While they look like all pull thrus they are not. It all depends on how they put you in a spot and how big your rig is. We were in a pull thru. If your neighbor has a travel trailer or a tow car they may park that vehicle in whatever space you have left over on your space. It was so tight in the road ways that trucks and cars just parked in the middle of the road and you had to ask someone to move in order to drive through them. You cannot put an awning out without hitting your neighbor. We put our slide out only half way. The place is very trashy and while we were there some guy walked through the parking lot (this is what it really is) with a leaf blower blowing all the trash, dust, dirt into your RV and space. We did not feel safe leaving my motorcycle or anything of value outside overnight. There is no security and no gates. Your close to the freeway so you will hear that the entire time your there. We made reservations in January so we could not cancel without losing money but, we were tempted to. The only thing that kept us from doing this was that there were no other parks with vacancies and we planned to see Seattle and this was the closest park. The utilities were in working order but, you had to share the water hook up. The restroom and shower were old and out of date and not clean. Several of the laundry machines were not working or took your coins and didn't work. The pool and spa closed at 8PM. The only plus is its location close to Seattle. We will never stay here again.

Tips for other Campers:
We use two GPS devices on our travels. One is for cars and the other is for RV's. Our RV GPS took us to another location. You may want to put in the longitude and latitude.
I wish I had stayed in a parking lot. Too small, too tight, not friendly, slides almost touch. Mostly long-term residents with much debris. My dog would not even walk on the grass in the dog area because of the feces. One owners pit (friendly, thank goodness) was let loose and charged me and my little dog. Find a Walmart, etc. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.

Primarily permanent residents. Very rundown looking. Sewer access infringed on neighboring sites. Very noise highway outside gate. Only positive is close proximity to Seattle area. WiFi was too slow to use. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.

We stayed here four 4 nights in Sept to visit friends in the area. The sites are packed and in ours (close to the office) you parked parallel to your rig. You probably won't put up your awning. The management was tidy and kept things orderly and timely. I would give him a 10. I can't fault a park for being old but this park needs some TLC. The main sign is falling apart and there are areas that need attention. Still, I would stay here again. The biggest surprise was how quiet our site (77) was, since the park was adjacent to the freeway. But it's location near Bellevue makes it very attractive. If you're not real fussy this is a good place to make camp. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Travel Trailer.

It is not a campground, more like a parking lot. Narrow shelves of asphalt. Due to its close location to the Interstate, it is very very loud. The Internet is extremely slow, sometimes it does not run at all. The sewer from the neighboring site was blocked. The gray water and black water ran across the pavement. It stank horribly. This was at 6 pm and no one was in the office. No one cared. Also at the emergency phone number no one could be reached. And this for 45 US$ per night. Even Home Depot is better. Never coming back here again. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.

We were at this park for 2 nights as a base for visiting in Seattle, about 15 minutes away, and it was an excellent value. The park developed as what one might expect in an “in city” park. The entire park is paved and the sites are lined off—and they are close together. While a little grass would be nice it did the job for us. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the showers were immaculate, and they had a very nice indoor pool. The only downside for us is that while they allow pets, it’s not particularly a good park for people with pets. The “designated” area for the dogs is really the right of way on the main drag out front and with all the dogs that visit the park it was a bit unsatisfactory. All that said we would stay here again.

This campground was built in the 70s for much smaller RVs. Boy, were we ever crowded in. No picnic table, no grill, but our site was level and the pool and hot tub were available. However, as crowded as it is, we would stay here again because it had: location, location, location. Close to Bellevue and its stores. Close to Seattle if you wish to drive in. But it's also close to the Eastgate bus terminal which we used when we wanted to go to Seattle. 75 cents one way for a senior - can you beat that? For $3.00 my husband and I could go in to Seattle, tour and come back. We also found marvelous trails throughout Bellevue which we loved. By the way, it costs $22 for a trip up the Space Needle for a senior. But it costs only $27 for a sandwich in the restaurant at the top and they pay your way up to the Needle. Great deal. Sit there for lunch and just watch the changing view out the window. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.
Located right off I-90 at exit 11 this is a great base to explore Seattle. The roads and sites are all hard paved. The roads are a little narrow, but we had no trouble getting in with a 40' RV and toad. We witnessed the manager assisting a 43' into a site. The utilities worked well including cable. We will stay again when in the area. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.

A note on the nightly rate... this is because we have a large family, so needed to pay for the extras above the standard 2 adults/2 children rate. We had a great time for our one-night stay. The kids loved it, especially the pool and hot tub. The playground is pretty small, but they didn't care. They had a pool table but needed repair so played ping pong instead. Also played a little playstation. Used the dryers -- thought they worked quite well! Bathrooms/showers were great. Location right by the freeway across from the LDS temple was also perfect for us.

Tight, flat, blacktop spaces close enough to I-90 for Tim Tebow to throw a pass across all six lanes. There's nothing pretty about it, but from here you can drive to the Space Needle and Pecks Point in about twenty minutes. Good base for touring Seattle area. Nice, but not worth the big buck$. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.
Great place to stay if you want bus access to downtown Seattle and don't mind walking to bus stop. The facility itself is a typical urban park with no shade or trees and RVs nearly touching, but the showers are clean and accessible and the WiFi OK. Staff is friendly. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.
For the price, this is a poor excuse for an RV park. The Only reason it can demand that fee is that it is the closest RV park to downtown Seattle. We spent two weeks there with no break on the price. Spaces are crammed together so closely that we could not extend our awning. The noise from I-90 is loud and ever present. And when it rained the sewers backed up. Not very pleasant. I will not stay here again. We camped at Trailer Inns RV Parks in a Motorhome.
