We were told that during peak season management now puts Affiliates in a lot at the far end of the park, away from the pools and playground, which meant we had to drive to the amenities with our young grandchildren. No sewer or water hookup, just 30 amp power, which was adequate for our 3 day stay. Many of the regular sites in the park were vacant throughout our stay. No apparent enforcement of quiet time rules. Show cost as $1 as it would not let me enter ROD rate which is free. We camped at Beachwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We booked this park through our Coast to Coast membership. When we arrived we were told to drive around and find a site, then come back and register. In other words, we were not promised a site that matched our reservation request, even though we had already paid for the week. We finally found a site that would fit our 38 ft rig, but all the sites are very narrow, and the roads are dirt and gravel and very dusty. The staff doesn't seem to do a very good job of cleaning up the grounds as there were plastic bags and paper in the shrubbery and the area around the dumpsters was a real mess. Although we didn't use them, the pool and club house look to be very nice. The camp store is large and very well stocked. I don't think we will stay at this park again. We camped at Beachwood RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
The C Store in Birch Bay has good pizza and an incredible selection of homemade candies!
A poorly administered and maintained RV campground. Everything beyond the swimming pool area and recreational complex is sub par. Check in lacks signage, you are left to find your own site and they have no idea which sites are available. Washrooms are dingy, dark and dirty. There needs to be additional washrooms for the number of people using the park. Picnic tables are rotten or rotting. Interior roads are full of potholes and dusty. Wi-Fi is spotty at best, available only at the clubhouse, and cable TV reception is limited. Sites are too close together and utilities are poorly situated. The clubhouse, pool, and recreational area is the only saving feature of this campground. It seems that there have been assurances and promises of upgrades and improvements but nothing ever seems to happen. We camped at Beachwood RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Signage at entrance doesn't tell you where to turn- hint go to the 'shack' not the office looking building. Staff ok but expect that everyone knows everything and has been there numerous times. Being told to go find something wasn't helpful. If going again we would look at G section first for a 2 week stay. Pull throughs are side-by-side utilities and not much room. Might come back.

Very friendly staff at check in. Nice sized pull through with full hook up and cable TV. WiFi only worked in the clubhouse. We played tennis on one of 4 courts. It's just up the road from the waterfront.Nice location. We have stayed in Blaine before at another RV resort. This is much better and we will return here.

We came without reservations but were told it should not be a problem, it was craziness, one person told us we were on a waiting list the next you had to come each morning and check. We landed in dry camping where everyone just did there own thing, this is geared to family camping and kids, no real adult activities planned, as for wifi don't plan on it , when resort is booked u can not get on, for just celebrating 33 years you would think they would upgrade, the sites are ok some. Close some it so close, will we come again probably not. As I have told my husband thank goodness we did not pay full price for the membership, am so disappointed of what we have come across. Trying to figure out want a 5 star resort should be. We camped at Beachwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We camped here for free for 2 nights in return for a sales pitch. Dusty sites, and you're either in total darkness or in the parking lot. The cabins look like they belong in the 6o's and for $50 it's expensive. Our biggest complaint is about the sales staff. When we told them we decided against purchasing (after the sales pitch), we didn't only not get the "gifts" we were promised ($50 gas card and some other stuff) but got the cold shoulder and were not feeling very welcome. We left as soon as we could. The facilities are just OK, a bit too strict on the kids and the kids club was not in great shape. Not a 5 star, KOA's will give you better value for the dollar.

As a member for the past 9 years I find that the "5 Star" rating has certainly lost it's shine. WiFi promised through out the park for years has not happened. In order for me to check my email this past weekend I had to sit on a golf cart in front of the sales office to get a connection. I have been in rest stops with better WiFi. Washrooms that are filthy. The park memberships have been over sold and and it is very busy and looks as if no money is going back into the park. Shame really, it was a wonderful park a few years ago. We camped at Beachwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in late September so it wasn't real crowded. In the summer you probably would have other RV's very close to you. Loop G has more space between sites and we would stay in that section next time. Most sites are only 30 amps and electrical boxes are kind of old. In B Loop where we stayed sites could be improved with grading. It appears that quite a few people live here full time, but I don't know that for sure. The store, playground, and pools seem fine and there is a large park area for kids. This time of year it was very quiet and its location to go to Canada or to the Mt. Baker area is good. As Coast to Coast members, we would stay here again this time of year. We camped at Beachwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.
This park overbooks during the holidays and turns away their members because they have no sites available even though they made reservations months in advance. If you are lucky you can be put in overflow which is usually in the parking lot next to the dumpster. I have been a member of K&M for a few years and in the past couple of years the park has gone downhill in the way of maintenance and cleanliness. The patrons of this park do not obey the quiet time rule and are partying till all hours of the night, and security wont do anything about it. Speed limit is 7 MPH and most people go well over that and nothing is done about it. I am selling my membership and going to Thousand Trails. We camped at Beachwood RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly staff greeted us at check-in. Grounds in need of a little more care: grass cutting and hedge trimming. Has good facilities, and lots of amenities for families. We camped at Beachwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.
It is a large property with lots of options for families. There are multiple pools, extra large grassy field, and play structures for different age groups. A convenience store is adjacent and offers a good variety of supplies. There is a coin-op laundromat too. The activity center is dated but has enough planned activities to keep kids busy. Bathrooms are clean but need some work (broken stall door). Property is mostly gravel with lots of potholes and puddles. Sites are mostly level with a picnic table and fire pit. There is only one central garbage for the entire property. Sites along the perimeter are more private, heavily treed. Tent campers must set up in one large grassy area. There is a secured entry with friendly staff. It is a great property for kids to bike and explore. The location is great, a 20 min walk to the beach (must walk thru state park) and 10 min drive to a large grocery store. We listened to the timeshare presentation so stayed for free.

We used this park as a Coast 2 Coast member and if you park close to the general store on the south side of the park you can receive Wifi signal. Members that have been coming to the park for years say that there has been improvements, but for us there seemed to be none visible. it is a older park and it is showing its age. Gravel roads are not graded and have pot holes that can really rock your rig. Tree branches should be trimmed much more than they are in parts of the park. Good thing is that for children, the parks has lots for them to do. Pools are large and clean, and playground is huge with grass that is cut regularly. This park could be first class with someone really doing the cleanup maintenance. We camped at Beachwood RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is run down, and is very much need of a face lift or a complete over haul. Sites need racking of dead leaves, branches and bows need trimming. Gravel sites and not very level, and the wash rooms are disgusting. I was assigned a spot water and 30amps only, I could not run my microwave oven. The sewer was out of order. The next morning we moved to a 50 amp, which still needed a lot of maintenance. I have been to far superior Washington State Parks, even with all the budget cuts they are still great. I was old I was a minority cause they do not get many American Eagles in the park that require 50 amps. Basically said 50 amp is mandatory for me, membership declined.
