25 Parks near Bothell, Washington
Oct 2015 - $30.00
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

This is a fairly clean park. During the day there's some traffic and aircraft noise; at night it's quiet.
20 amp plus water sites are long, non-level grass and dirt with no shade. Utilities are at the back, and half are on the wrong side. Full hookup sites are shorter, non-level gravel and grass, with utilities in the usual locations. Each site has a picnic table.
Roads are asphalt in fair condition with some potholes and many annoying speed bumps.
There's one private shower per gender, $0.25 for 5 minutes. The men's shower is inadequately ventilated and usually muddy, with discolored tiles, a torn shower curtain, and cobwebs. I saw one silverfish.
Verizon LTE works well.
WiFi is strong. I measured 571.6 kB/s down.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
There are strong terrestrial broadcast TV signals from CBS and ION.
Laundry: 2 top-loaders ($1.75), 2 dryers ($1.50).
Rate is total with tax for a 20 amp site. - wjzcbn

This place sucks! We were in space 16. The water and electric is over in space 15 next to us but unless you have long hoses and elect cord you won't hook up. Also it's only 20 amp service and recommend not using air conditioning as it will pop the breakers. We tried it at 90 degrees who would stay if you can't use air conditioners!?! It worked and didn't pop breaker. Also, pets have to stay inside camp spot on a leash. They cant even go to water and can't be walked inside campground. The woman of the campground isn't nice. Husband is a great guy! - Corey Esson

The campground is $35 per night or $180 per week. It is very quiet, beautifully situated on the lake. In the office, very friendly employees. For visitors to the city of Seattle, the location is ideal. However, you need a vehicle (Towing-Car). The wifi is extremely fast. We felt very comfortable here and would definitely come back. - usa

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

Small park on Puget Sound Waterfront site. No waterfront campsites. One restroom for the park. Water at spigots in 3-4 locations around park. Electric connections are located such that at back-in sites electric is on the left, while pull through sites electric is on the right. This is the reverse of all campgrounds we have ever been to. If you select this park, bring very long extra extension cords. Excellent park for tents. Some Yurts are available. Park ranger service is inattentive due to budget cuts. Camp host was not visibly present. - jake blake

Very nice county park. The rangers patrol regularly and make sure everything is as it should be. The sites are very spacious and there are a lot of trees to provide shade. The water is a short but rigorous hike downhill where there is a very nice park for walking the dog or sitting by the shore. The beach is rocky. Overall we enjoyed this campground very much. - gary855

Another campground that wants to be a resort! Spaces are pretty tight for those with big rigs (motor homes or travel trailers) in spite of the pull-thru ability in several. Small children were playing on interior roads on scooters and bicycles before 7 AM. So much for solitude and quiet for campers. Permanent and long term residents spread throughout the park, not confined to a particular area. Sites are on grass (not a great feature considering the annual rainfall in the area), and water faucets are at ground level which makes it difficult to hook up. Experienced "vandalism" twice in 18 hours. While away from the site someone opened the electricity box cover and removed pulled my cord out of the receptacle and laid the cord on the ground. Neighbors claimed innocence and no knowledge. Entry gate locked at 10 PM and a $5 deposit is required for a card to be able to open it after hours. They're "pet friendly," but keep that pet on a leash! - grandflic

Started out OK but the place is a zoo. kids and dogs running loose. Our dog was attacked by one of the residents dogs. Reported to office, nothing done or no one even asked about dog. No basic RV park etiquette honored, people walked through site. My impression was this is a homeless camp, but that would disrespect the homeless. - tpaine

This is a very family oriented park. We come here with our son and his family of 5 kids. There is something for all of them to keep busy, lake swimming and fishing on one of two docks and playing in the sand for the little ones as well as lake wading. We sail our small boat and there is a dock to tie it up that's provided free. We always get lakefront and side by side sites so we can be door to door with them. There are some weekends when the crowd can be rowdy, but that's the case in many places. The folks that run the resort are very friendly and willing to accommodate you anyway they can. There is a well stocked store/gas station at the entrance. The playground has been updated from the rusty swing set mentioned in the '07 review and now they have true playground equipment as well as volleyball and tether ball. The sites are tight, especially lakefront but we have 3 slides and are 42' long and it always works for us. There is also lots of grassy area in front of the lakefront sites for chairs, picnic tables, etc. We think it's a great place. - grammiejan

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

This park is a nice park nestled around two lakes. With the lakes comes ducks (poop) and very loud bull frogs at nite. Many of the weeping willows hanging over the lakes are in need of trimming. With this and a little sprucing up (landscaping) this park would be amongs the best. The park is a bit tight for a 40 foot motorhome particularly with pick up trucks parked in front of their rigs. Our spot backed up to the lake with overhanging willows. We had to park to the very front to get satellite reception pointing south. - Btowny

This was our first time using the Thousand Trails/Encore pass we got for free, when we purchased our motor home. Although the park was pretty, I was not impressed. You have to drive around to find your own site, then report back to them, on which site you took. This was a large campground. 30 amp only, we couldn't even run 1 A/C unit for the heat, kept blowing their circuit breaker. No sewer hookup. No wifi, no cable. Attendants checking you in are friendly, but rushed, as there was a steady stream of campers coming in. I saw other comments on this park, and if you have to pay that much for this park, it is way too much. However, to be fair, everything in the area is overpriced! All sites are back-in only. Lots and lots of trees. Pretty. Dirt site, turned muddy after rain. Lots of pot holes on the interior roads, which are not paved. Again, not impressed and would not stay here again. - Vicki K

A woodsy park close to towns, but far enough to feel that you're away from towns. We arrived during the day, and no one was at the guard shack. Using the call button, we reached someone quite quickly. Soon we were greeted by the grounds maintenance man and signed in. The park consists of mostly dirt roads and woodsy sites. they are well cleared and maintained. It was quiet, and peaceful. There are no sewer connections so if you plan to stay for a while, bring an auxiliary gray-water tank. - Richbald

Great place to visit with children or adults only. Pool was wonderful; there is a playground and also miniature golf to enjoy. A little difficult to get Directv because of number of trees but we were successful in getting a signal. Sites are spacious and level. Since we were there mid week there were a number of empty sites. We had a long site with lots of shade and privacy. - lstaff

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
Jun 2015 - $55.00
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

There are few RV parks in the general area for competition, and frankly it shows. This is one of the most cramped parks we ever stayed in during our two years on the road, particularly if you are in one of the 50-amp pull-thru spots. Putting out our awning partially covered the adjacent unit's bedroom slide, if that will give you any idea. There are also quite a few long termers. Having said that, it is close to Bainbridge Island, Poulsbo and Silverdale - all big plusses. It is also very quiet (except that you can hear when adjacent units' furnaces kick in and out throughout the night). - coffeetime

Online photos showed shaded spacious sites but those were only being utilized by permanent RV residents. The pull thru sites were long and narrow with no room to sit outside or even open our awning. Slides almost touched the neighboring RV on both sides. The back end of our fifth wheel was so close to the road coming into the park it felt like we would get hit. So glad we only stayed 4 nights & it was cool while we were there so we didn't need to use ac. Laundromat was clean. Nothing much to do in Poulsbo either. - RendezVous
Jul 2015 - $37.00
Site was gravel, very narrow, width of a parking space at WalMart. Minimal room for slide-outs, no room for awning. No trees or shade, no privacy. Could not sit outside, no room to grill. Several full-time residents with their accumulated possessions all around. Not a pleasant camping experience, probably one of the two worst we have experienced. - RDV

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
