We stayed two weeks. An attractive park with many fir trees. Some of the site have slopes up or down which can make parking difficult. The water pressure is very low, no satellite reception, snowy cable, bad Wi-Fi, and narrow roads. I would not camp here again. The prices were high. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a very nice experience at this park. We have a 42' and had no issues with maneuvering. Our site was spacious and level with excellent utilities. The WiFi was descent. Very close to the harbor at Gig Harbor and not far from Tacoma (toll bridge though). Several good restaurants within walking distance. Definitely hope to return here again. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for three weeks, so we had an ample opportunity to get a good feel for this park. Many of the sites are very large and most all are reasonably level, despite the hilly nature of this park. All appear to have new utilities. That said, the cable doesn't work very well. We were in three sites in our three week stay and found it to be "snowy" in all of them. It was that way even connecting the cable directly to the TV, bypassing all the wiring in my trailer. Some sites have nice shade. There is WI-FI available at no extra charge, but it's speed performance was spotty. At times it was very fast, at other times it was so slow as to "time out" all the time. The laundry room is clean and reasonably priced. Park is for the most part clean and neat, even though it has long term tenants who tend to collect "stuff". Despite a 4 hour gap between check out/in, rarely ever saw the staff cleaning empty sites prior to the next guest. In fact, while here, staff put out a notice to all sites asking the guests to clean the sites and put any debris at the roadside, where they would pick it up. Really? The pool is advertised as heated but it wasn't. Staff said the heater was broken but long term residents said the pool has been that way for several months and the staff just doesn't fix it. At $43.07 per night (which includes a 10% discount) this park is overpriced. They can get away with it because it's essentially the only private RV park on the entire Peninsula, indeed in Pierce County. The park is next to a private gun club. Some guests might find the constant pistol fire annoying. We didn't. After a few days we hardly noticed it. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is not an RV resort. It is a campground. As a 45 ft motorhome we found the sites manageable to maneuver into but not easy. Graveled lots with no grass. Old run down picnic table. Quiet park. We did not use any of their facilities. Trees prevented satellite service. Word to the wise - do not use their website directions from the South. They take you through the middle of town which has tight corners and is very congested! The directions from Bremerton are a quick & safe way to get here even when coming from Tacoma.

The only full service park in the area. It was reasonably well laid out and is clearly being improved. Set into a hillside, it still featured level sites and adequate space. However, some areas will be preferable to others dependent upon individual preference. We liked the lower area better due to its being easier to access and proximity to the laundry. It is a quiet park at night, while in the daytime a close by small arms range was a constant (but not very loud - especially for a retired soldier). The staff were helpful and quite friendly. A good feature was its close proximity to town - a relatively short walk - which for those who are fit an easier option than looking for parking. We will return here when visiting Gig Harbor.

This park has improved tremendously. Last time I was here, there was no Wi-Fi at all, and only one plug-in internet port; the site was muddy and flooded in the rain. Now there is Wi-Fi, and the sites are nicely graveled. And while I did have to move once, I knew that before I got there, and chose to do so rather than going somewhere else. I thought it was nice of the staff to work so hard to get me in there when they could simply have said nothing was available. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for five months, wrapping up business, and saw constant billing and scheduling changes. We were moved to a new site every month. The basic facilities are there, but were average at best. The pool finally opened after the Fourth of July and closed on Labor Day. Since we were in several sites, we can attest that the Wi-Fi is unusable everywhere except the office and rec room. The laundry and rest rooms were clean and always available. Many sites are narrow and difficult to back in with a 36' RV. They were constantly full all summer, but this is one of the only commercial RV parks on the west side of Puget Sound. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Made reservation in Jan. 2013 quoted $500+electricity but when we arrived in July we were charged $525+ for our monthly stay, we had also said in January we may stay 2 months and were told should not be a problem. Newer owner Korean not good with English and office girl not good with her job, must be new also. These people constantly move coaches around. Not sure what that is about. We were able to stay in one spot for a month, with just enough room for tow. When we said we would like to stay a second month the owners said we would have to move and pay weekly rate ...NO more monthly rates. We left. The pool was closed for the first two weeks we were here, filter broken. Lots of dogs in this park but very little dog area. the sites are dirt and dusty. The park was quiet at night. During the weekend days the sportsman club a few doors down had outdoor shooting in their range and you heard shooting all day, very unnerving. Exercise equipment not in good working order. Owners and workers not friendly. We did however make some good friends with people who stayed there all summer and even yearly. Seems the new owners are cutting down trees and bushes to make more room for rvs to fit, raising rates and making changes, that do not complement the park. If you are sent up the hill it is very tight. To bad it was a nice park at one time and Gig Harbor is a nice area, with shopping and dinning near by. Sadly, we will not stay here again. but we loved Gig Harbor and the summer weather there was great. We loved the area people, and made some forever friends there. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park has much to recommend it: wooded hillside environment, and its proximity to the charming community of Gig Harbor as well as the sights of Tacoma and Olympia. However, it is crowded with sites close to each other and jammed into every available foot of its hilly domaine. Leveling is a challenge, water pressure is low (30 psi or less), and gun shots from a nearby gun club make for a compromised camping experience. We had to use our water pump to make showers effective. 50 amp sites are scarce and some sites do not have sewer hookups. Staff and owners are friendly and helpful. Never-the-less, we enjoyed our stay: mainly because of Gig Harbor and all the boats. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Don't really know what to say about this campground. Great location, lots of trees and shade. The cable TV reception was terrible; wi-fi worked well. Built on steep hills, each site was 2-4 ft higher/lower than the next. Tight turns for big rigs. Lots of gravel and not much grass. Office staff were courteous, but management was not gracious at all. They closed at 5:00pm, including the lounge area. Would only stay here again if nothing else was available in the area.

This campground was recently sold to new owners that barely speak English and have no clue how to run a park. We spent 5 nights here and had to move our 42 ft RV 3 times. The owner says this is part of camping and he does not care. We talked to atleast 12 other campers that also had to move during there stay. We will not be back. Their prices on the internet are wrong and they say they do not care. WiFi is unusable. No dog park, you just walk amongst the other RV's. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Really great location to walk to the harbor. Big park but not a big parking lot. Sites are all different and some are up a hill and around back. We stayed right in front of the pool behind a house. 13A - it was a perfect slot. We only stayed there one night but would have happily stayed longer. I enjoyed walking around the park. The pool was not warm but freezing cold. Good large pool. Large facility area with laundry etc. Walk down to the waterfront and eat at market grill right on the water front - small great restaurant with really fresh fish and chips with real fries and the best clam chowder every!! Nice friendly staff. We used their Wi-Fi but got good Verizon service too. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Decent park. Clean and well kept. Lots of large trees and shade. Gravel sites with asphalt access roads. Spaces between rigs fair. Water and power good, but use a pressure regulator. A bit tricky for big rigs, but very do-able if you're at least fair at handling your rig. Lots of big rigs there. Park has two separate areas, upper and lower, we stayed in lower. Staff friendly and helpful. Park is on a hillside, so some leveling necessary. Satellite reception depends on site...not too many due to the trees, but cable good. Shopping about a mile. Closest Walmart about 16 miles. Harbor and dining 5 minutes. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice park with large trees in a great little harbor town. A bit off the 5, but worth the trip over. Site was huge, but dirt and not real level. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Easy entry and exit. Quiet and peaceful. No traffic noise. Gig Harbor is a quaint old fishing community. Major shopping out the gate and to the right about three miles or up on the 16. Pretty area. All in all, a great three day stay. We would come back for sure. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Sites were extremely tight, really tight, couldn't put out our awning or really sit outside. Utilities were fine, only 30 amp services available in the section that we were in. We would probably not stay here again. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.
