One of the only quality RV parks in the Seattle area. Book early! Despite being large with many sites, this park fills up quickly. My experience here was extremely pleasant, even tempting me to want to live here. The park is quiet, surrounded by trees and hiking trails, yet so close to the city. Many sites sit on the lake, which itself is not so great but is a preserve for ducks and geese and provides just a glorious experience.
Each site has bushes on each side providing a sense of privace. Dog friendly: a small fenced-in dog run, but the many many hiking trails surrounding the park made up for that. There is no wifi offered. - HeraSTREAM

This campground was my first stay after picking up my new trailer and it could not have been a better choice! The site was an easy level pull-through so set up was simplified. The staff was courteous, the neighbors friendly and helpful. The shower/restroom was spotless and private consisting of separate rooms, each with a shower, sink, toilet and a door that locked. I used the laundry facility which was also clean and very economical at 1.00 each for washer or dryer. The park was full and I was glad I had made a reservation. Many long-term campers and a few short-timers like me. The proximity of this campground to Seattle is unmatched. the grounds were well kept and pleasant. A grocery store and gas station are located directly across from the park. There is additional shopping and restaurants nearby. I highly recommend this park. - Sisababe

A little pricey but a nice park in a suburban city environment. Walking distance to a Safeway grocery store. Spaces are close together. They do some interesting pruning/shearing of fir trees and other evergreens to create partitions between sites. Get one of the back in spaces along the pond, especially if you have a large window to the rear. - RnBRV

County run park that uses Reserve American. gravel lots, mostly level, good water, and power, dump available grounds big sites. Sanakans are all we saw for a restroom other than a walk to Fairgrounds. The site was marked reserved upon arrival. Never saw the host, but didn't need to find either. Speedway is right next door, so a weekend stay is going to be noisy. We came for the Red Bull GRC. Staying here made it easy to enjoy the event, and no one needed to be a DD for the weekend. Would stay here again for an event. - NXTSTOP

After searching for the RV campground, which was not signed, I called the fairgrounds during their regular business hours, but they did not answer. They did eventually return my call at ten AM the next day. I ,along with two other people in RVs, finally found the site. They had tried to call also, but with no success. I stayed in campsite 213. When I arrived another person was in my site. The camp host was nowhere to be found so I spent the first night in site 214. The next day the "host" was still nowhere to be found. Finally the site i was supposed to be in was vacated. I moved over. The tree behind my site had branches sticking in to my space, and it did not allow me to fit in to the space all the way. I parked a little ways out in to the lane that circled the campground. The site was level, and gravel with no pot holes. The utilities box was in good repair, as were the hydrants. There were no clear site boundaries, but there were some faded chalk lines. People with dogs off leash were prominent, despite the signs stating dogs must be on leash. The sites were lit by street lights, and the lights did not turn off. This made it difficult to sleep at night. - Zach Merritt

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

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

This is our 3rd time staying. The owners and people are so on top of cleanliness, trash, lawn maintenance. It's truly wonderful if you like lake life. We see eagles and herons flying above us, sun reflecting on Lake Sammamish, our kids playing in the swimming area with slide. . Definitely worth coming again and again.
We were happy with our space. We have preferred the spot on the end (23?). Companies have their parrots at park, but it was fun people watching as well as people launching their boat from the ramp in front of us. One guy fell in water as he was guiding the driver down the ramp. Hahahahah
Definitely book in advance- January for the spots in June - August. Recommend the end spot in the end (23?) - Lagomamasita

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

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

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

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

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

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

The only down side of this C.G is the small sizes of the sites, when slides are opened there is no place to manuver and no way an awning can be opened. Other than that it is the cleanest C.G I visited in a very long time. - summerdude

This park suffers from being built on a hillside which necessarily means that pad sites are going to be EXTREMELY unlevel. Bring all the leveling blocks you can. Many of the sites have shrubs planted right up to the side of your rig so getting into your basement compartments is tough. I found the park to be clean and the staff friendly. The bulk of the occupants seem to live there full time. Let's face it - there's not a lot of attractive options in the Seattle metroplex. The better locations seemed to be booked up 4-5 months in advance since there appear to be so many people living full time in RVs. - aznumwa339

The office is open from noon to 6 pm. The park is an old black top lot that is very unleveled. Some units used cinder blocks and several wood blocks to help level their unit. The designated dog walk areas were littered with duck poop as was the pet park. There were many long termers with very poorly kept sites. The park was very dirty. - Michael47

Beautiful park! Wide sites! Overflow parking provided for extra vehicles. Restrooms clean and very large! We have a 45ft Motorhome had no problem getting around! We will stay here again! - Queenphish

Should be listed as a park not a resort. Very very close sites. The park itself is fairly clean but overflow parking is filthy. Could not fit our tow car on the lot which is very inconvenient. Cars that were parked on the sites all hang out into the street making it feel more crowded. The personnel are very friendly and helpful, restrooms and laundry are very clean and well kept. - Kerch

This is the smallest piece of real estate we've ever rented for our 44' Big rig. We actually sticking out a little bit on both ends. Very common around the park. The space was so tight, that the car could barely fit, had to get out of car before he pulled in. But we did fit. Very close, but no issues getting into site or around the park. Very nice office staff. Great location for visiting Seattle and the Boeing tour. Not a lot of options close to city. All paved. Couldn't get their wifi to work but Verizon was good. If you're in season you definetly need a reservation. We had difficulty finding last minute camping. - OnTheRoadLife
