Stayed for better part of 1 month at this park. Setting is nice & quiet, lots of trees between sites, very spacious overall. Pool area is great, my kids loved it. Used this as a base for commuting to work in Seattle area, and traffic proved to be quite a challenge as you have significant congestion in getting out to the Seattle Bellevue area from this park. Also, this park seems to be intermittently staffed, so most contact with management seems to be via returning messages as there is no office, email address, or Facebook account. There are also no sewer sites at this park. Lastly, there are a few 50amp sites, but ours proved to be problematic and we had to bump down to 30amp. Not a huge deal during the mild June in the Seattle area. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Check out Snoqualmie Falls, all the hiking along the nearby I90 corridor and in winter- skiing at Snoqualmie Pass. Love this area!

Rate reflects RPI membership. We stay here every year for a week while visiting Seattle. This is one of our favorite parks. It is very quiet on the weekdays. Satellite can be iffy, but can be found with patience and a portable dish. Our site only had 30 amp service. There are a few 50 amp sites, but they have always been taken by long term occupants. The pool and hot tub are very nice, but very noisy and crowded on the weekends. There are no sewer sites, and the access to the sewer dump is tough because you have to turn around to get to the proper side. The sewer dump has many pot holes, mud, and disgusting green algae.

This park has mixed reviews. We liked it. Large sites that are very private. Lots of woods. If you want satellite ask when you register and they will show you where the best sites are, then you pick your own. Bring lots of co-ax. We had no problem. Wifi is at clubhouse only. Would have been better with sewer as we were here for a week but--"Blue Boy". Fair ATT service. One of the few C2C parks that lets non-members stay over a holiday. Rate reflects C2C. We would stay here again. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
This park is located several miles off I-90 so is not really an overnight stopover location. As stated before - the roads are gravel with pot holes that need graded and are dusty, speed limit is 5 MPH and followed by about half of the campers. It is busy on weekends but quiet at night. There were no planned activities while we were there. I would not describe it as a resort but more of a nice wooded state park campground with a swimming pool. We used it as a nice 3 day overnight rest on a long trip. We would most likely not stay here again if in the area. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Paid full price the first week and then used C2C membership. The staff in this campground was very nice. We called to come into this campground a week early and they really worked to make that happen for us. We were able to pick our own site, they made suggestions based on the size of our rig. There were many sites that were taken with longer term campers or were marked as “seasonal site for ‘the Smith’ family”, etc. Dirt roads throughout resort. There is a security gate. Campground easily handles big rigs. Sites vary in size. Ours was very large. Each site has a nice grass area with picnic table. Sites are all very level. Each site feels separate and more private because of the trees. Very nice pool area, additional shower and bathroom facilities. Sites are electric and water—no sewer; but there is a dump station available. Laundry was $2/load—which is more expensive than normal. Good Verizon cell phone coverage. Most sites do not have satellite access because of the trees. Wifi is only available in the clubhouse. Would have given higher rating if the resort had satellite access and if there were sewer hookups. We will definitely return. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Large sites. If you want satellite TV make sure you park on the west side of each street. Need a tripod in order to shoot between the streets to get the satellite. 30 amp & water. Dump on site and honey wagon available. Nice pool. Very quiet at night. Sparsely populated during the week. One of the few places available to stay around the Seattle area, works for us as being near family and we use memberships for stays. Everything you could need is in Issaquah, just a short drive away.

We only stayed here two nights while we were visiting friends who were staying here. Dusty, dry sites carved out of trees. Narrow, uneven. We would not stay here by choice. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a tough call. I don't think this park is horribly overpriced for the area, but for just water and 30 amp electric it seemed just a bit high. We were receiving the benefit of a fairly good discount as we were staying there as part of an FMCA group pre and post cruise to Alaska. The sites are mostly level, but very, very few have the ability to access satellite because of the tree cover. There is no cable available, no park wi-fi, and we were not able to access any over the air channels. Verizon wi-fi is flaky, even with a booster. Only certain of the sites have 50 amp electric, and these are mainly sites that are "owned" by folks who were members under the previous administration. Many have ropes across the entrances and name placards proclaiming them "Seasonal site of the Jones' Family", et cetera. The pool looked nice, the recreation facility and club house was well maintained, and the laundry is adequate. It could be lovely for a few days, but it is not a place I would find acceptable for a long term with no TV and no full hookups. A sewer service is available for extra cost, and there is a dump station, but ... really? Interior roads are well travelled, but so dusty that the residents keep hosing them down to keep their rigs cleaner. Fall City is a nice town, and there is fairly easy access to Seattle for sightseeing. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here as Coast 2 Coast members. Excellent park: it is now ESL/Encore. Very well maintained: the sites are wide and private, most have trees on each side. They are level and easy to back into. Wi-Fi is free, but located in club house and near pool. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Some sites are satellite friendly, some are not. They give you a list of the ones that are when you get here. Only drawback to staying long is there are no sewer hookups. I would stay here again in the future.

When we made reservations for a weeks stay we emphasized that satellite reception was critical for us and was assured that they had a site for us that would be OK. When we arrived we discovered that the park is not reservation and it is literally carved out of a forest. We had to search the park for a suitable site and there aren't many of them and they were of course already occupied. Everything else in the area was full, so we were stuck for a week without TV and internet. Not the way to do business! We would definitely NOT return.

Very nice Encore/ELS park. Rate shown was a $140 weekly rate through Thousand Trails. We stayed here two weeks while visiting the Seattle area. Very nice pool and pool area in addition to a nice clubhouse and very friendly staff. Sites are large, very lush, well-spaced and private. Rooftop satellite only available at about 25 sites. I was really impressed at how quiet this park is, even on the weekends. Not empty, just quiet. My only two negatives are that the bathrooms are a bit far away from some of the sites and there are only a few sites with sewer hookups. Lots of outdoor things to do and see in the area. Redmond with lots of shopping and restaurants is only about 15 minutes away. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Very pretty park. Lots of private sites (big rig friendly). Has a great pool and hot tub; wildlife (bear, deer and coyotes). It's near Seattle (30 minutes). Has 6 cabins (trailers). We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park was part of the Western Horizon system. We parked here as RPI members and the park is now operated by Encore/ELS. It is a beautiful park, clean and well maintained with large shaded sites. The pool is very nice as are the activity center and the other amenities. The only reason this park doesn't get a 10 is that there are no sewer hook-ups and few garbage dumpsters. Located near Seattle and Bellevue. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a members only park and is overpriced for the benefits. We traveled here with a Coast to Coast member and even though we were allowed in, we were not welcome...and they made that very clear. Paid cash and had to see management the next day for a receipt. Only 30AMP with no sewer hookup. The dump area had water running all around, so not sure if it was potable or not. Satellite TV is an issue since the spaces are in trees. They advise you to have a portable dish on a stand if you want satellite TV. The biggest thing that stood out to me was the unwanted feelings and no receipt if you pay cash. Beware...something going on here at this park. There is a very nice park at the same exit on I90, go to that one instead!! I will not return and will advise people the same. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent RV resort. We were greeted by name when we drove up. Beautiful, green shaded sites. Restrooms & showers were very clean as was the laundry facilities. They made us feel right at home. We were traveling in a travel trailer. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
