Park is very nicely maintained. It is completely surrounded by very large trees. The spaces are situated around a series of ponds in the park so that most sites are back-in to the ponds. Many trees throughout the park along with hedge rows at most spaces used as a privacy curtain. All are nicely trimmed with no impact on rigs. Roads are paved and sites are pavement or concrete. Sites vary in length and width with some being a little tight. Grass between spaces. It appears the majority of sites are occupied by permanents but are very nicely kept up, however most of them have two vehicles so the park can feel cramped in the evenings and weekends. Wi-Fi is free but we had difficulty connecting. Verizon service is weak, so data was slow. The offer cable but we were able to use satellite. Most sites are satellite friendly, but make sure to request it when reserving. Very near everything in the town of Bothell and close to a Park and Ride for the express bus to downtown Seattle. Very nice place to stay when in the Seattle area. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pros: Very nice park. Friendly staff. Sites are somewhat close, however a hedge between them, makes for mostly private.

Cons: Our site #50 and ones near us were quite unlevel. We chose not to be completely level as our front wheels would have been completely off of the ground as the rigs near us were. Wi-Fi, although says it is free, is through TengoInternet and only 1 hour per 24 hr period is free. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Do not follow GPS directions. Ours had us exit the 405 at exit #23, which took us on a winding surface street. Exit #26 is much better, although from the south a few miles further. Worth it!

Safeway with gas station is directly across Bothell-Everett Rd. We chose to drive across and fill then hook our toad up. Many stores and restaurants close by.

We chose to stay here, because of being just about half way between Boeing and the Space Needle.

We make an annual visit to this park. It is the only park near the north end of the lake.... "Lake" Pleasant is just that. Quiet, peaceful, friendly, and well maintained... Even has a pitch and put golf course.. While the 'lake' is little more than duck pond to many people, I challenge you find a more relaxing park in the area. We will be back....

Campfires are not allowed... This was once a peat bog, and if a fire were to start, could burn for many years. Speed limit is 8.5 mph... pretty easy to remember.. Dog friendly. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Truck Camper.

We stayed just for one night on our way home. Would not have expected to find such a nice and quiet park so close to the highway. Wonderful setting with lots of greenery. Paved pull-thru site with excellent hookups. Just a little tight. There was a lot of rain the days before we arrived and it was hard to avoid the mud puddles when stepping out of the trailer. Site provided little to no privacy which wasn't a concern for an overnighter. We'll be back. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Based on monthly rate. Electric at 9cents per KWH. Park is very clean and well maintained. Streets and sites are paved and utilities are well positioned. Lake is for fishing only, no swimming. Easy access and no problem towing through the park. Cedar shrubs between sites. Staff is friendly and helpful. Office is open for service 7 days a week. A quiet park and a nice location. The rating reflects the lack of activities available in the park. There is a nice hiking trail around the park and a nice playground for kids.

We would return when in the area. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Safeway Grocery directly across the street from the entrance with reduced cost fuel station. Restaurants too many to list within a mile. Propane available in park.

We feel this is a really nice park. Lots of greenery for being so close to a large city! Even trees planted in each site for privacy between rigs. First I can't help myself, I have to start off by replying to what some people consider negatives. If you are bothered by road noise, why are you 15 miles from a large city like Seattle? In a suburb? How do you expect there to NOT be any road noise? If this is your concern, stay farther from the city and drive. The road noise is surprisingly little especially deeper in the park than I would think for such an urban location. Didn't expect so much greenery, either! Also, yes it's a man made pond/lake, no you can't swim in it. So? It's very pretty. If ducks and geese bother you, I'm sorry, but why are you RVing? If you are woken up by every little noise, RV Parks are never going to be for you. :) I happen to like hearing the ducks, because I like nature and that's part of why I love this park. I can't speak to security/homeless people, I never saw any concerns in our 4 nights here but they may be going on. I felt the staff was very friendly and accommodating. My only downside, as almost everyone has said, is the lack of Internet. We work online and also have our travel blog and YouTube videos so it was a pain. Yes we can get it across the street at Safeway 24/7 which is great if you just need something in a pinch, but when I have to spend 2-3 hours online I would much rather be in my rug enjoying the RV park I am paying to stay in, rather than sitting at Safeway feeling like I could be at the Safeway at home. Overall we REALLY like this park - lush, green, pretty quiet, wildlife, nice large paved roads for daily walks plus some small hiking trails up around the park, convenient location in Bothell with Safeway open 24/7 across the street, lots of fast food and restaurants. In low traffic times, 20-30 minutes into Seattle, up to 2 hours in bad traffic. Laundry is cheap, machines worked well. Main bathrooms were VERY nice, could use more hooks for hanging things up and could be a little cleaner, but much better than most parks. The private bathrooms in the back were a bit dirtier and not as well maintained. We would definitely stay here again. We just really hope they get better Internet. :) We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is very clean and well maintained. With our truck we are 53' long and had no trouble with the roads and turns. It is convenient to Seattle and the surrounding area. They plan activities. We will stay here again and recommend it to others. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location for access to Seattle and surrounding. Clean park with good paved roads throughout. Many sites are right on the lake all around the shoreline. Very picturesque. Good utilities, quiet at night, no airplane noise. Some of the pads are asphalt and jack will sink through to the bog underneath. That have boards available if you happen to have one of these sights and sink in. Many permanent residents live here. Spent three days, will come back.

This is a nice park, about 16 miles outside of Seattle. Roads are very narrow, and turns can be tight, but spaces are good. Paved and concrete sites, with good hookups. Cable TV was OK, but stations were limited. Our roof-mounted satellite dish worked well. The "lake" is more of a large pond, and could use some cleaning up. Covered with moss and slime, and omitted an odor at times. The pond is home to many water foul, so had to be careful when walking or sitting on the grass due to duck and geese droppings. When staff mowed the deep, dense grass throughout the park, including each site, they left the wet clippings right on the site, so quite messy, and had to sweep frequently so as not to track them in our rig. There is plenty of room to walk around the park, and enjoy the forested areas. Restrooms are clean, and have individual locking doors. The laundry room is clean, open 24 hours, and is only $1 for both the washers and dryers. Office staff could be a bit friendlier and helpful, but they are very busy in this park. Most of the residents are long-term, but rules are enforced and the park is kept very clean and clear of debris. There is a small yurt for groups to use, a playground, but no other amenities. There is a Safeway Grocery Store across the street from the park, and several other stores and restaurants close by. We would definitely stay here again when visiting the Seattle area.

We stayed at this RV park while we were on a cruise to Alaska. They provide storage for the RVs with electricity for $3 per day. The regular daily rate is $40, which seemed a bit high for the amenities. However, we would definitely stay here again if in this area. One thing to watch out for. Their signage is very poor, and we missed our turn which meant going up the road to find a place to turn around. The park is on a corner, and the only sign is right there, so if you don't see it, be prepared to turn around. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is definitely the best place to stay in the Seattle area. We have tried them all. Roads and sites are paved and private. Turning radius for a 45 footer is a little tight. Lots of grass and open space. It is located in town; however, you would not know it as it is very quiet and peaceful and most sites overlook the pond (I would not call it a lake). Good 50 amp. We did not use any of the facilities. Very busy; recommend reservations well in advance. We will return here every time we visit Seattle. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Motorhome.

While this is advertised as a 'lake', it is really more of a slough than a lake. It's mostly covered with algae and is much in need of aeration. The campground itself has nice trees but the sites are very close together. The wifi service is supplied by Tengo and is only free for one hour every 24 hours. Are you kidding me? Even the Safeway across the street has unlimited free wireless internet access. In this day and age no reputable campground charges for wifi access and they certainly don't use a service that limits bandwidth based on usage. The cable TV they offer has only 14 channels. I've stayed in many nicer places with lower prices that provide better amenities. Pass this one by, there is much better value to be had at other area campgrounds.

Beautiful park like setting around a lake complete with ducks, geese, and frogs. Pads are level, cement, and separated by hedges between sites. Our back in site was 80' long with utilities well placed. Roads seemed a little narrow but manageable. Owners and staff were very nice and helpful. Cable was available but we used our satellite. Only negative is the WiFi that was limited to 60 consecutive minutes per day. We were located at the back of the park and never able to access it. We were told at check in that 24/7 service could be purchased through Tengointernet; however I had a hotspot we could use in lieu of spending more money. We loved this park and would enjoy coming again We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only negative was the WiFi. We were on the back side of the lake and rarely were able to get on. When we did, we'd often get booted off and then our free, daily one hour session was over. Very frustrating. The park is beautiful, wonderfully landscaped and impeccably maintained, the restrooms are very nice and spotless, most sites seemed pretty level, roads were paved and satellite reception was good. We had a back in site on the lake and were surrounded by grass. We sat out back on the picnic table and watched the ducks and geese swim around. There are forested trails around the perimeter and a walk around the park provides almost a mile of exercise. Hated to leave, would definitely stay again. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park. I have no major complaints, very nice landscaping, friendly staff and convenient to almost everything. We rode the bus to the city, the 522 express, to keep from driving the truck downtown. It worked out great, suggest checking into it. NOTE: The entrance to the park from the GPS is wrong, you need to turn on 242 st. or you will end up in a oil change business. The only things that could be improved are better Wi-Fi, more cable channels, and a bigger dog run. Small stuff, really. Would stay again. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
