The pool is nice and big and heated perfectly. The bathroom shower area one walks through to enter the pool is dated and dark with missing tiling etc. Do not count on your GPS system to get you there or you will end up at the old entrance far away in the woods which is closed. Another person was following us having the same problem. Just head for the casino and keep on going. You will then reach the entrance which just looks like a large RV storage facility. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.

First...this park is not located in nor close to Mount Vernon tho their mailing address might, indeed, be Mount Vernon. Second...hard to find unless you follow specific instructions provided by park staff. There are virtually NO signs to help direct you. Third...the roads thru the park are dirt with light gravel. That is fine if you don't mind dust and dirt. We drove in with a clean large motorhome with tow and proceeded to drive up/down/around the hills looking for a space large enough to handle our rig. We found many trailers and tents but few large rigs in this good size park. When we left my rig was clean no more. I would say this is not a bigger rig friendly park and not for seniors like myself. I'm also with understanding that this park is no longer a Thousand Trails campground, but I could be wrong. And as mentioned, the name of Mount Vernon is very misleading for anyone expecting to be in the general vicinity of Mount Vernon. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

This park looses points for being so hard to find - no highway signage and even as you approach the park the only sign says "No Through Road". Sites really vary in quality - they're all private, nice wooded setting, but some are level, others not, small, large, you name it. Maintenance not the best - my tap was missing the knob, replaced with a rusty old set of pliers, probably been there a long time. This section of I-5 has very few options for good parks so, yes, I would probably stay here again. Not a ringing endorsement of Thousand Trails though. We camped at Mt.

Love the sites and the layout. You can pick your site and the area is great for walking around the park and finding the trails around it. We really hope they get the pool permanently fixed. Problems with it through out the summer cause a lot of people not to come back. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is member rate. Getting there is a bit of a leap of faith. You exit I-5 onto Bow Hill Road and make your way to the campground without a single road sign. Not only that, but you turn at what appears to be only the entrance to the Skagit Casino. The road is marked as the entrance to the casino, there’s a “dead end” sign, and you basically drive a road that is part of the casino parking lot. At the northern end of the parking lot, you continue down a road marked “no thru way.” It looks for the world as if you are headed for an overflow parking lot for the casino. Then, at the end of that road, lo and behold, you’ve arrived at a large, “hidden,” campground. The roads through the campground are wide, gravel roads that are in pretty good shape. Many of the campsites are both deep and wide, big enough for most any rig. Many are cut into the woods, providing a great deal of privacy (but making it nearly impossible to get a satellite TV signal). There are some sewer hookup sites on the western side of the campground. They are pretty popular but there’s a price to pay for using them: not only will it be a challenge to get satellite TV at most of them, they are also situated quite close to the busy and noisy Interstate. The eastern side of the campground is quieter with no sewer connect but RVers in one section in particular (nicknamed “satellite row”) have a better than average chance of getting a satellite signal. Some of those sites are more crowded together than those in the rest of the campground. It’s quieter on the eastern side most of the time. The exception is Saturday evenings. Just below the campground is a raceway that’s in full swing on all but winter Saturday nights. The noise of the cars and announcers is very loud. The campground has a nice Activity Center and large, heated pool. These are out near the entrance – quite a walk from most of the campsites. We heard reports of people having low electrical voltage but we were fine. I had a decent 4G cell data signal but it was having problems and would go away once in a while. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

The pool here is enormous with enforced adult swim hours. The overlook point is very nice to visit. The sites near the highway can be quite loud, so be sure to look at the map upon entry to avoid those sites. We found a nice, large, quiet site though it was muddy (can't be helped). We will definitely be visiting this site again. We ate breakfast at the casino and the food was good but, once the casino opened at 9 am you could smell the casino smoke (gross). We camped at Mt.

A typical Thousand Trails. There are no signs on I-5 or at the turn for the park. Turn towards the casino, then go down the dead end road at the end of the parking lot. The park is at the end of the road. Able to obtain satellite in B-section, near the ball field. Good cell service and convenient to Mt. Vernon. Watch for potholes on the roads in the park.

We had a free trial membership with Thousand Trails so we did not pay anything to stay here. This is a very popular park so do not come on Saturday and expect to find lots of empty sites. Most of the sites are nicely wooded. We finally located one to accommodate our 38' fifth wheel and had no satellite TV reception because of the tall trees and had no wifi connection with our Verizon either. All sites are back in and there is no sewer and only one of the dump station lanes was open. There is a clubhouse with activities. Saturday night there was very loud car racing noises until 10 p.m. from the racetrack nearby. Other than the car racing noises it was very quiet. With no sewer connections available I doubt we would stay here again. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.
Quite possibly the worst camping experience in our 8+ years as fulltimers! Set up in a site that had such low voltage that we were unable to run any of our electrical appliances - this includes a fan! Staff originally told us that this 'was an older park that had low power' and that they told 'everyone not to run anything that required power', especially when the park is full! Later, they would tell us that there must be some kind of problem outside the park. We looked at moving to another site, but in talking to the folks set up around them learned that they also had little to no power. Of course, all of this happened while we were traveling with our grandchildren over the Fourth of July! After six days, waiting for things to get better, we finally ended up moving to a commercial campground in Mt Vernon! If we were new to Thousand Trails we would be demanding our money back. Just an awful experience! We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Very poor air TV. Good Verizon phone and data. Mostly wooded sites. Great indoor pickleball court. Store and weekend breakfast and lunch. Some road noise for sites near the freeway. Price shown is member price. Casino walking distance down road. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.
Stayed 3 nights with husband and boxer. Huge long sites and so many to choose from. Really nice pool and hot tub (adult only) outdoors, we did laps in it. Pickleball court was being repainted (it's indoors). Mini golf was good. Lots of trees and mostly dirt and gravel sites. Fire pits all at far end of sites. Clean bathrooms and showers. The Wi-Fi is weak to n/a mostly, unless you're right by or in lodge. Service is better near the open areas. We stayed in F and next time will choose A because it's closer to pool and lodge. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Tent Trailer.

Park has a nice club house. We enjoyed the fact that the pool has an adult only time as well as a time for kids. If you like the forest this is the campground for you. Has lots of amenities. We'll be coming back. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.
Large, private camp sites. Roads are wide. Bath room's are clean. Lot's of trails to walk on. If you like Casinos a large one is 5 minutes away. If you like car racing the Skagit Motor speed way is near also. Just a warning about that: on Saturdays you can hear the cars pretty loud and our golden retriever didn't like the noise much and began shaking. Then some times they have a fire work show so keep an eye on your dog's. All in all a great place to stay. We camped at Mt. Vernon Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.
