Great park a short distance away from our home, great get away without the long drive. Beautiful setting around their own lake. No freeway or street noise, quiet and comfortable. Staff was polite and available. We use 50 amp power which was no problem. We left the TV off so no Tengo hassle. We enjoyed the rest and will return. - Larry & Julie

One of our top 5 parks for sure. A beautiful oasis just north of Seattle. Ducks on the lake and bull frogs at night. - Don Howard
Jul 2016 - $35.00
Beautiful setting on its own lake. Heavily-wooded, nice and green. Virtually no road noise. Lots of residents, all kept their sites clean and nice-looking. Pull-throughs were long and wide. Only complaint was poor TV reception, and TengoInternet (spotty and slow) for an extra charge. Otherwise, it's a great place to stay. - Christopher Scott

Advertised cable... ha ha! If you like the emergency alert station and xfinity infomercials. 3 stations in total. Don't advertise cable if you don't have it.
Internet; they should really get their money back from their non service provider. Couldn't log on the two evenings we stayed.
Funny thing, after numerous attempts I couldn't even submit this review.
Won't come back. - Diego Stevens

The park is paved and very tight. Every inch of ground is utilized for sites. There are only a few pull thrus that are so short most rigs with tows will still have to be disconnected which defeats the purpose of a pull thru site. Many sites are occupied by permanent campers. If your site is near the office you will hear road noise. The positive aspects is the location to the Boeing Facotory and the Old Birds Museum, both well worth the time. You will have commercial jets flying overhead as the jets produced by Boeing are test flown. Grocery stores and shopping nearby. The people in the office are very helful & informative. - petpeople

This price reflects the monthly rate, as we stay here while making our annual visits to our doctors. Their new rate is $550 plus electricity. They also charged us $90 for electricity. Sites are tight when you have slides. It is 50 amp with full hookups and pull-through spots. The majority of people live here full time and there are a few dumpy sites. We are booked to go back as it is convenient to Seattle. - rolling homeless

All RV parks around Seattle seem to have problems and are expensive for what you get. Maple Grove may be one of the best, that does not mean it deserves a high rating. While good in some ways, it has many issues, which mostly revolve around tight and extremely in-level sites. While we managed with a big rig, this is not a big rig friendly park. We had to leave our front slide in - in order to level and avoid a large tree. Extremely tight for the toad. - PSWeb

Pleasant reception but very expensive for what you get. Pads are concrete, are not level and close together. Whole park is on a downhill slope so bring lots of blocks to help level your RV. - Klicker

The staff was rude. Didn't say they were repaving the black top until 8am of our 1st day. Nor did they say there would be no driving on it 24 hours. So unlevel they provided 3 2x6 boards screwed together (one for front and one for back). This was basically a tight parking lot with no room. Would never stay there again. Was going to stay 9 nights but only stayed one. Better choices available. - CMHerman

Where to start with my comments. First the website falsely leads you to believe that this is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay near the water. 2 out of the 4 photos are not from the park. Out of the sites they have only 5 or so we're available for over night stays. This is 90% permanent stays, although they are mostly tidy in appearance. This place is WAY overpriced for the type of park and experience. Based on where we have stayed on this trip and what we have paid at other places this is outrageous! The sites are gravel and very close together and we had concerns about getting our 40' bus out of the lot. There are not many options in town and we planned on visiting Seattle so for a base camp was ok. We would not stay here again. The manager was helpful but very concerned with the actual age of our coach and didn't know what a conversion was to understand the look of our setup. Although he later explained that the older motor homes have propane systems that don't meet their insurance standards. He almost turned us away without explaining that when we were making reservations. - KellyLynnHoff

This is an update on some two year old reviews. This is an OK park. A very friendly and helpful manager. Sites are gravel with paved roads, they are 20-25ft wide and 38ft plus deep. There are 10 pull through sites that are 25ft by 75ft. There are long stay units but the only items stored outside was lawn furniture. There were no safety concerns in our 4 night stay. Free WiFi is slow but OK. There is only one unisex toilet/ shower that is disabled set up. All cars/ RVs parked off road. We have a 44ft 5er and maneuvering was tight, but big motor homes would have no trouble. The landscaping could certainly use some attention. - TedandJan

Rented space for a month. Price quoted does not factor in $20 to read electric box, $25 for two rigs (including the one you pull with). Overflow parking, 5 spaces. Even tho they take all info down your rigs may not fit the space. Might have to drive your 2nd vehicle to park elsewhere. Hwy 99 is six lanes here, getting out is difficult even in a car. Washing machines were dirty with a sign that said "Please wipe down when finished", they obviously don't clean them. One dumpster for 65 sites, full before pick-up day. Gravel, no grass. Friendly manager, but this park has problems. - rainyday

The sites in this park are very close together but if you can get by that the park is convenient to public transportation into Seattle, the managers are very nice and helpful. The park tenants were very friendly and the laundry facilities, clubhouse, and restrooms were clean. Good value camping. - hbcamper
Aug 2012 - $12.00
Rate is based on monthly rental (plus electric). Very tight park, but great facilities - good electric, free wifi at the site, small lodge with book exchange. Very friendly staff. Walk to stores. Bus service on street in front of park. Park is behind (new) Mercedes dealership, so is somewhat hard to find. Watch for small trailer type sign along road. We would/will definitely stay here again if we need to be in the Lynnwood area. - earlymun

Access to the campground is through the parking lot of another business, easy to miss the signs and the driveway entrance. Interior roads are paved, but sites are gravel. The sites are extremely tight; I had to crawl under my neighbor's slide to connect my power and water. My site was not level and too short, the manager had to put warning cones in the roadway. No room for my tow rig, so I had to shuffle it around among open spots in neighboring sites. We were parked under the brightest floodlight ever made - I had to tape a black garbage bag over my vent dome to sleep. Most of the residents are permanent, with only about six for transients. I stayed here because of the location near the hospital and ferry, but never again. - Doug Atterbury

We took the 15 miles detour from I-5 because we are always looking for quiet places to spend the night. That's what we got. Tucked away in the woods and far from all shopping amenities. The paved road through the park is very tight and winding. We had to take it really slow with our 34' trailer in tow. Maneuvering into the back in site was tight as well, but we managed. Don't take anything bigger in there.
Sites are gravel and fairly level. No water in the park this time of the year. We knew and had the fresh water tank filled before. Power was stable. Verizon signal strong and steady. Very quiet at night, no traffic noise and no train noise whatsoever.
We'll come back when travelling in the area. - TheSchweitzers

No sewer. Hot showers (coin), but restrooms can be muddy from rainy days and/or lake swimmers. Hilly park roads. Beautiful woodsy sites. Best kept secret: reserve for 4th of July and get a front-row seat on beach for spectacular fireworks show, with homes around the lake competing for most money spent in professional fireworks. - User3773
Aug 2010 - $28.00
Very tight driveway to the sites, and we, with a 29 foot trailer and crew cab truck, probably would not fit in many spaces. We had to pay for a premium site, which was not anything above the others, but we fit. Could not get satellite TV as the trees are thick, which would be good on a hot day, but it was raining while we were there and it was quite a mess. Long narrow roads to get there once you leave Highway 2, and hard to get back on Highway 2 going east once you leave; too much traffic. - djtel

Stayed here due to a lack of any other options on So. Whidbey. There are no definitive parking guidelines, just primitive pedestals, which allows people to park anywhere. The field where you park is covered with rabbit pellets, a function of the mass of loose rabbits on the grounds. A 4H function brought people in that created a sardine parking situation, but worse, some people brought their horses into the RV parking area next to the RVs and proceeded to groom their horses in the area with the RVs. Health Dept should visit this site, but it's owned by the county. - John R

Sites are un-numbered, scattered about a field. You are close to a road, but it is quiet. The place is crawling with rabbits (which have escaped during previous fairs, apparently), so your pets will probably love it. Port-a-potties are provided for your convenience. - hikinghack

Camping is in a large grassy field near the arena. Weekends and evenings you share the area with the horses / riders and their rigs as they come for practice or riding events. Other than that, it's a very quiet campground, probably the cheapest on Whidbey Island. Has suited our purposes well for a place to hang out before and after their annual art show. Nothing special about the campground itself, space between rigs is very dependent on how people choose to park. We had a nice large site for 7 out of our 10 days and for 3 days had a motorhome that pulled in 5 feet behind us and blocked our limited view of Useless Bay. The fairgrounds are populated by bunnies, a past 4H program that went awry. Great entertainment for pets that travel with you as they watch all the bunny antics. - DRFink

Extremely nice park......with an extremely rude manager as of Feb 2016. - Michael Conrad

We stayed over Thanksgiving and were to have Thanksgiving dinner pot luck style, but when asked what time dinner would be, we were told it had been canceled due to an equipment failure. That would have been ok, except they knew days before and did not take time to notify incoming guests of the problem. Manager was very rude and could care less about what guests thought. Lot spacing was nearby and mostly shady. Site surfaces were gravel and dirt. - doit

First, the good. Verizon MiFi and cell phone worked perfectly. Water pressure is 70 PSI.
Now, the bad. This park is now 30% allocation of 30 spaces for "annual" leases. Many of these individuals work local construction jobs and stated how much it cost to rent an apartment locally and living here is much cheaper. Children are met at the school bus by the ranger and some of the children are left alone until 10 PM, when parents work afternoon shift. The weekend is a free for all as "daily pass" guests take over the pools and showers. Grass is knee deep in some places, the backhoe grades a ditch down the center of the street trying to keep water runoff out of sites and when you remove the thirty annual and the live-in rangers, very few sewer sites are available. Per the ranger, the jets in the hot tub has not worked since before it was closed last Sept. and Thousand Trails will not approve the cost to repair them now. Dirt and debris collect in the bottom. This park has become nothing more than a low cost apartment alternative. Thousand Trails is intent on converting their parks to this type of clientele. Buy another membership. This one is going downhill rapidly. - Eureka12

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. - PrtlndTrvlr

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. - petpeople

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. - SteelHorseRider

Park has just completed new restroom/shower facility with disability units. New gravel in most sites on Loop 2. Full hookup section (premium sites) is okay, but needs renovation. Pleasant woodsy atmosphere. Will stay here again. - NiekaKnitter

We are in site 3 which has full hookups. Most sites don't' have 50 amps but this one does. Only gave it a 7 because the sites 1-5 are short. Our 35 ft motorhome fit with our car, but no spare room as the sites are 45 feet long. Really had to use blocks to raise rear of motorhome as these sites are not level. Only our site 3 was able to get our Direct TV. Not a lot of room to maneuver. I understand park fills up in summer but I wouldn't stay here again. - Bluebird Bob

We camped in late August just before school started. This campground was completely full with a ton of loud, rowdy kids that needed to scream and yell late into the night. Overall, the campground was nice, but we had to take a pull-through space that was too close to our neighbors. We would stay here again but only if we could get a different site. - gary855
