23 RV Parks near Carnation, Washington
Oct 2017 - $35.00
I stayed in October on a sunny day. The RV sites are spread out on a large loop surrounding a large open field. The park has walking trails as well as yurts for rent and tent sites. - Dan C

Nice little campground with lots of trails. This place gets busy in the summer months with lots of kids and dogs off leash. Sites are level with the utilities properly placed. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. - illini777

Well kept park. Not much privacy there. It is a very beautiful place. - KamperKen

Level, roomy, clean sites. No sewers. No over-the-air TV. Swimming pool warm and looked clean. Spa bottom not clean. Laundry room has four washers and six dryers. Not enough for this size park. Handicapped shower was moldy in corners and walls not clean. Unbelievable dust. All units covered, including ours, and we only stayed one night. Not Thousand Trails park. Sister to Encore so received 20% discount. Couldn't locate website to establish types of hookups available for sewer. $35 charge for honey-wagon. Speed bumps galore and not easy to see. - USA#1 RVr

No sewer hookups, knew that going in. But it means you have to use their showers. Only 1 facility open before 9AM, was busy one day so had to wait for a shower. Dirty. Didn't get very hot. Worst issue is that there is little to no privacy. Showers are in public bathroom style stalls where you get to see the hairy legs of the guy next to you. Don't bend over or you might see too much. One day had a 6'4" tall guy in the shower next to me and he could easily see over the partition. Hi buddy. Don't show up your first night past 'curfew' (8PM non-peak, 10PM peak) or you will have to park outside of the gate overnight as nobody will let you in. Once I realized this, I had to drive 8 hours non-stop to try to make it in on time. Yes it says this in the email, but i've never experienced this before and really didn't think about it. At $50 a night I expect full hook ups. Also no wifi except in the building. Dirt roads, dirty and muddy, broken picnic table and broken 'fire pit'. Absolutely will not come back to this place. - rayzorben

Sites are in the trees which is nice. Pads were flat, but no concrete. Adds to a "campground" feel, but given the frequency of rain, a pad would help to reduce the amount of mud tracked into the RV. Our site had water and electricity, but no sewer.
The amenities (clubhouse, etc) were closed for the season and I feel the price should have been more significantly reduced. - danlp

We were there for a quiet stop but really enjoyed the quiet. Our gravel site was spacious, had some shade, and included a picnic table. - Rvmomma
Jul 2015 - $34.00
Never again! This could be such a nice RV/campground but it's not! Right on river but so overgrown you can't get to it. Bathroom is so dirty my husband would not even think about using them, and he's not very picky. Sites are on top of each other, there is no Wi-Fi , laundry, game room, etc...but yet they charge $34.00 a night. The only thing this park has going for it is location it's about 35 mins from downtown Seattle. But about 15 miles away in Carnation WA, there is a better place. Also lots of live in people with junk every where that ruins a park for me. FYI; there is no sign saying turn here for this RV park and our GPS did not have the turn right, when I told the lady at check-in about this she say's "happens ALL the time!" Not sure if it happens all the time why you would not change it, but... So if you miss the turn you end up in a roundly round or small downtown area. Turn right before the bridge. - laears

Park is OK for a stay of a week or so. Short supply of parks in the general Seattle area. Entrance road is horrible - really not wide enough for two lanes, so you must go slow. Speed bumps every few feet. Typical riverside park with elevated electrical hookup because of being in flood plain. Staff friendly, but there is a depressed feeling about the place. Everything is JUST OK. Lots of weekenders which is to be expected because of the river. - PugetSound

Live here long term. It feels like a national park, amidst beautiful trees, and it's quiet despite being close to the highway, 6 minutes from shopping, pleasant landscaping. It's much better than other alternatives that may be closer to the city. - Tom E.

Getting a place to stay in this area is tough, getting a reservation at a nice park like Blue Sky, nearly impossible. I was lucky enough to get one month here as I had to return to the area to do some "warranty" work on a prior job from 3 yrs ago. This park is very well kept and the restrooms/showers were great especially with where I was located (#51). There is a mixture of small and large RV's, all of which are newer and the people residing here show a sense of pride. - PatAnd

Beautiful park close to Seattle area. Very popular so difficult to get a reservation on short notice. Site spaces are close together like a lot of parks but OK. - Doug Toye

This campground is a good place to stay while visiting Seattle area. If you are looking for wide open sites in the wilderness, this will not be the campground for you. It was, however, perfect for our needs. They offer a Good Sam's discount. Campground was very easy to find and just off the interstate. Follow GPS and it will get you directly to the campground.
I cannot say enough about how helpful the staff are at this campground. We had some mechanical issues that caused us to be a day late in arriving. Even though this is a busy campground, they held our site so we did not have the additional stress of finding a new campground. The sites are very close together, but we were ok with this because we were visiting family. The sites are gravel with grass area between each site. The campground easily handles big rigs. There was additional parking available for us to park the toad. Asphalt, well maintained, roads throughout the campground. Sites are all very level. Each site had a picnic table. There is a very nice laundry room, although more expensive than we have paid in the past.
This campground is an easy trip in to Seattle. City accessibility was very important to us. Good Verizon coverage. It was very easy to get DirecTV satellite. - Priceless RV Adventures

The most unpleasant experience I've had at an RV park so far in my travels, after staying at 20+ parks. I had one of the "coveted" pull through sites, #115... which was right next to the bathrooms. Literally, right next door to the bathrooms. I had the most unpleasant feeling being here, and did not feel comfortable leaving my trailer there even for a few hours (nothing happened). Lots of older trailers, with stuff stored in bins and such outside the trailers. I could not get out of there fast enough.
The staff was nice enough, both when I called to make the reservation and when I checked in, though the office smelled strongly of mold and, again, I could not get out of there fast enough. I stayed here because I had business to take care of in the area and my preferred park was booked. I will not stay here again. - HeraSTREAM

It is right up against I-90 so there is noise. It didn't bother me. Sites are a little crowded, but this is Seattle area and parks are hard to find. Close to where I wanted to be. Had separate space for tow vehicle. Park was clean, staff very helpful. Plan on staying here next year if I'm in area. - Bob Gammie

This park no longer exists. Not sure why it is still here. This was a TT park, but hasn't been in years. - PugetSound

What a beautiful and clean environment! We enjoyed the views and proximity to the slopes. We'll be returning here in the future. - Groarkelis

Cascade is a very nice membership campground. Located close to Snoqualmie Pass is a good base camp for skiing also close to Seattle area and shopping. The park is nicely maintained and offers many activities during the summer season but is very quiet in the winter season. - bgenoe

Campground is close to interstate but quiet. Nice scenery on lake with mountain views. Had W/E only and the sites are extremely narrow but very long. Close with a slide out but managed OK. Firepits available. Nice choice for proximity to city. - CCMcLeod
Sep 2015 - $35.00
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

Staff was friendly and efficient. This was a typical city RV park with everyone packed in. WiFi was OK. It was close enough to Uber into city. Site was big enough for out 24ft and a car. The park was clean. I would stay again. Only stayed one night. - Aussie Chums

This is THE closest RV park to downtown Seattle, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the University of Washington Medical Center. If you have a family member being cared for at these facilities, this is THE campground to stay at. Staff is friendly and courteous. There is propane refill on site, and they have a procedure for leaving your empty tank and coming back later and picking up your full tank. It is not a scenic park with trails and views. It is an urban park with access to the city and all that includes. If you are staying here, the bus stops about 3 minutes away and runs to the park and ride where you can transfer to get anywhere. The main route at that stop goes to the UW or to Issaquah. Beats driving and parking. - RayB

I've stayed at this park as a guest and noticed The management has serious issues. They were very rude. I've seen them screaming at other residents of the park. I can't believe the way the lady of the park and this other employee were treating guests of park . It definitely didn't make me want to stay or ever come back. - Camperfarmer

TEST the voltage BEFORE you plug in. Low voltage in camp burned out our microwave and central vac system. Our neighbor revealed there have been previous electrical problems at Thunderbird. Thousand Trails member services does not return phone calls. Absolutely worst customer service we have ever received from TT. We do not recommend this park to anyone with electrical appliances. - Mamallama

Another old, tired Thousand Trails park. The check in was fast and efficient with one of the most pleasant ladies we have ever seen. One half of the park has sewer sites, but only one was available and we are too large to fit. The opposite side of the highway for non sewer sites. Rigs in the park appear to be lived in by homeless people who use the park for a residence. Adult lodge smelled of mold and had to go here to get TV reception. Electric pedestal and water connection were wobbly. One way in/out and horribly dusty. Will probably not stay here again. - Eureka12

This is the closest Thousand Trails park to Seattle. We wanted to visit friends in Seattle, and so it was a good choice for that. However, some negatives: there is quite a long drive (3-5 miles) on Ben Howard Road to get to the campground, and it is pretty narrow and windy for a 43' motorhome. The site we chose (43) was off a road that was very uphill and the site was pretty much perpendicular to the road, which meant the site was pretty level (a good thing) but was rather hard to get the bus into. I noticed the sites on the other side of the road were at an angle to the road which would have made them easier to get into. It appeared that the sites across the Ben Howard Road (water&electric only) would have been easier to get into - but then you would have had to come to the other side of the road if you wanted to dump. The dump station was well located if you needed to dump after leaving the full hookup sites, but the turn to get into it if you were coming from across Ben Howard Road looked like it would have been challenging. - pattic777

We have been living at Nor'West RV Park for a year and a half in our 5th wheel. The park is very well maintained and always clean. Every space has it's own storage shed and picnic table. The manager has always been helpful and friendly, he works hard to keep things running smoothly. Our dog enjoys the open field behind the park, scenery is also nice. Easy access to Interstate 90 which makes getting to Seattle easy. - Jody S

My husband and I moved our tiny house to Nor'West RV Park almost a year and a half ago. Overall, it has been a wonderful experience! The park itself is very clean, quiet, and has a large, open space nearby where our dog loves to run and play. Management is always extremely polite and helpful. It is a very short drive to shopping and restaurants, and is close enough to the metro for a manageable commute to the 'eastside' or Bellevue area. I would highly recommend Nor'West! - MegSem

Is a fantastic place to call home, whether traveling or living. Clean, quiet, and manager takes great care of us making sure things run smoothly. Would highly recommend staying here! Beautiful views of Mt. Si and everyone is super friendly! - Natural Witch
