Tall Chief is a nice stop off for a few day stay if you're looking for a shady, fairly well spaced jump off to Snoqualmie Falls/Fall City, WA. The power was less than adequate in our dusty, in level site; and even with 30amp, the water heater and the A/C kept popping the breaker. For a busy park in the dead of summer, power can be an issue but for the price of this park and it's hidden $4 per day "campground fee," we felt very much taken for granted. In addition, $55 a night and no sewer is just too much to pay. The laundromat on site was very clean and reasonably priced. We also enjoyed the pool. We camped here in a 36' foot 5th wheel that was completely coated in fine dust within a hour of setting up camp. We enjoyed the tiny town of Fall City and the campground staff was friendly and helpful as could be. Be aware that the resort fees vary during the week vs. the weekend and there are no weekly discounts. We did find Direct TV satellite in site #25 and had decent AT&T Internet. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
The cycling on the roads heading towards Fall City offered adequate bike lanes and run along the river and right into town. Good eats and coffee as well as a few local fruit and vegetable stands. Don't miss seeing Snoqualmie Falls: and it's dog friendly! Be sure to eat at the lodge/resort near the Falls.

What others have said about the park is true. It is big, wooded and the sites are level (for the most part). It's dusty, the Wi-Fi works good in the clubhouse, pool and bathhouse are excellent. For the price, it should have both cable and sewer.
I have 24' MH and had no problem with the A/C. All that said, you pick your own site and report it to the ranger. What isn't said is that, unless you mark the site some way (orange cone, chairs blocking the site, etc.), it is fair game for new people checking in. I lost sites twice. Gentleman at the ranger's station was very helpful in completing my stay. I loved the seclusion that the wide, brushed areas between sites provided. One thing not mentioned, is the distance (10 miles to Redmond) + the mileage to other area activities. Takes a while and there is no Metro transportation facility until you get to Redmond. All in all, I liked it. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Compared to all the other parks we stayed at over our 7 week vacation, I would rate this park sub par. The park has a great wooded setting which is the best thing about Tall Chief. The sites were not well maintained, the bathroom / showers were dirty and rusted.
The pool area was nice and great for kids. I would not recommend this park. It needs a major overhaul. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first time using the Thousand Trails/Encore pass we got for free, when we purchased our motor home. Although the park was pretty, I was not impressed. You have to drive around to find your own site, then report back to them, on which site you took. This was a large campground. 30 amp only, we couldn't even run 1 A/C unit for the heat, kept blowing their circuit breaker. No sewer hookup. No wifi, no cable. Attendants checking you in are friendly, but rushed, as there was a steady stream of campers coming in. I saw other comments on this park, and if you have to pay that much for this park, it is way too much. However, to be fair, everything in the area is overpriced! All sites are back-in only. Lots and lots of trees. Pretty. Dirt site, turned muddy after rain. Lots of pot holes on the interior roads, which are not paved. Again, not impressed and would not stay here again.

A woodsy park close to towns, but far enough to feel that you're away from towns. We arrived during the day, and no one was at the guard shack. Using the call button, we reached someone quite quickly. Soon we were greeted by the grounds maintenance man and signed in. The park consists of mostly dirt roads and woodsy sites. they are well cleared and maintained. It was quiet, and peaceful. There are no sewer connections so if you plan to stay for a while, bring an auxiliary gray-water tank. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Redmond and Fall City are nearby, Carnation, Duvall, North Bend and Snoqualmie and Snoqualmie Falls are all nearby. Good shopping, fishing (in season) nearby. Bring an overflow gray/black water tank or plan to move your rig when the tanks are full. There is a pump truck that comes by regularly.

We stayed here because of our rate (Coast-To-Coast), proximity to Seattle and we couldn't extend our stay is Issaquah. It worked for the few nights we were there. It's bit of an odd place. I had to page someone from the front gate to get checked in. then we had to find our own site and report it back to the front gate (after we set up). All the roads are gravel/dirt. It hadn't rained in ages so it was dusty. One of the workers stopped by he was very friendly. The front gate folks were a bit standoff-ish; it's just an odd place to check into. Even a member had to park their car and walk to the front check in gate to get a pass. We'd probably stay again if we needed to. The spaces are roomy and it's a quiet place. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Great place to visit with children or adults only. Pool was wonderful; there is a playground and also miniature golf to enjoy. A little difficult to get Directv because of number of trees but we were successful in getting a signal. Sites are spacious and level. Since we were there mid week there were a number of empty sites. We had a long site with lots of shade and privacy. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park with spacious sites. 30 AMP / Water hookups, felt it was very pricey for the accomodations you received, plus the $4/person/day resort fee. For Thousand Trails members, this is a great option right outside of Seattle, but if you're not a member it's very expensive. I'd rate this much higher if the price were more reasonable for just W/E hookups. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Close to Fall City, lots of shopping / restaurants on the Sammamish Plateau. Good Verizon / AT&T signals.

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.
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. We camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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 camped at Tall Chief RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.
