Beautiful forested park close to Gig Harbor situated on a terraced hill. It is not a resort, but it is a nice RV park. Paved roads and gravel sites.  We will definitely return, but not for extended stays where we have to rely on the quality and performance of the Wi-Fi in order to work.  We tested multiple access points throughout the park and they all suffer the same problem.  Wi-Fi performance varies greatly from so slow that you can't even browse the Internet to find a local restaurant, to just OK, all in the span of 60 seconds.  Multiple tests throughout the day didn't reveal improvements even at 5 am.  Still a very nice park, just don't expect reliable Wi-Fi.  Verizon 4G/LTE was a solid 3-4 bars with good data performance.

 We had no issues with our reservation made 4 months prior to our visit.  The park is very big rig friendly, and was in fact full of 40 foot units.  We visited in a 35 foot class A motorhome towing at Honda Fit. We were in pull-thru site 13, which we found was very level. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Spots range from a 1 to 7 or 8 . We were in a side by side spot , rigs literally less that a foot apart, i would rate a 1. Wifi was ok at times and not working at times, close to town. The town is great, many restuarants and plenty of shopping. Hardly any grass in the entire park.

Gravel,gravel,gravel!!! Way overpriced . We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for a week in our 43' motorhome. Booked the "super premium site" and for the price was disappointed. The sites are terraced so getting a large RV out wasn't easy. Site itself was poorly graveled dirt, no privacy, and a small picnic table. Cable TV was adequate. Large trees surround the park so we were unable to pick up satellite. Water pressure was set low (40 lbs). Very small swimming pool with lots of kids. We wouldn't stay here again if there was another alternative in the general vicinity. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were put in site 131, which is a pull-through spot. They knew we had a 38 ft. fifth wheel. There is no way this is a pull-through for any trailer over 20 feet. The cable was so snowy we just put up our antenna. They are not accommodating at all. We had to back out, which was no problem, but our friends who were next to us had problems because of trees and a huge root set by the site. I would not stay here again.

We were in site #42, a beautiful back-in with trees behind us. It was long enough for our 36' and very wide. The electric and water were fine, the cable was a little fuzzy but not bad. The site was level, gravel, terraced. The location is beautiful with lots of trees so no satellite. We will stay here again on our next trip to Gig Harbor. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Costco is very nearby, Target not far away. The downtown is very nice and the harbor is beautiful. Poulsbo is only 32 miles away and they also have a lovely downtown and harbor. Bremerton is close and there is a ferry from there to Seattle. If you come in on Washington 16 be sure to pay attention at the roundabout when you exit the highway or you will miss your turn to the campground.

Our site was amazingly level given that this camp is on a terraced hill. Pricey but very close to the harbor with good restaurants and watersports. Gig Harbor is close to the Tacoma Narrows bridge and 45 minutes from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Parks nearer the airport are full of construction workers. WiFi was worthless. If you're leaving the windows open on a temperate evening, you'll hear shots from a nearby firing range until 10 pm or so. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Like others have said this is not a resort. Roads are paved and sites are gravel. This campground has 3 tiers if you will with the middle tier the best with big sites and cleanliness. The upper tier is mostly permies and not so nice. The lower tier is a mixture of permies and overnighters that is. Very tightly spaced. The site we had for a week was large enough for our 41 foot motorhome plus 3 cars if you had that many. Pretty quiet for the most part. Utilities were good as was wifi. Sites are tiered up a hillside but easy access and level. This park is by no means bad but if they would water the grass and spruce up the landscaping I'd rate much higher. Good place to relax as there isn't much to do in the general area. Satellite reception dependent on what site you're in. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A pretty RV Park, though hilly. The pool was nice, but the hours weren't. We'd be out and about during the day hoping to swim at night, but the pool closes at 6:00 pm. We did have to use levels on the fifth wheel. Overall, this was a very nice park, a bit expensive. The main reason we wouldn't stay here again was having to pay the toll bridge every time we came back to the park, and the traffic was horrible between Gig Harbor and Auburn, where our family was. We stayed here two different weekends, with two different sites. The first site, #13, was much nicer than the 2nd site, #31. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice, popular park. It's a bit hilly, but OK for big rigs. Sites are a tight, but again OK. Plenty of big trees. Pool looked nice. The town and water is about a 30 minute walk away (downhill to getting there, UP HILL coming back!). We would stay here again. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed 4 nights the week before the start of the PGA tournament in Chambers Bay. I fully expected their prices to be a little higher and they did not disappoint. They also charged us a pet fee because we have more than one pet. We paid nearly $50 per night which included an additional $2 per night per pet over the one pet they allow for free. This included a Good Sam discount. You might want to check that they don't charge you for having additional children if you have more than one with you. Our back-in site was in the lower section and fit our 40' motorhome and tow car just fine. The sites are terraced so you're looking down on your neighbor on the road side. Our site required minimal leveling and was wide enough to put out lawn chairs. Our picnic table was warped and unusable. The park doesn't allow ground campfires. The upper section is for long term residents it seems.

It's located off a busy road and not close enough to Gig Harbor to walk without all the traffic buzzing by you. Most sites are shady with gravel. Internal roads are paved. Water pressure was great. The hookups are in the middle of the site. Wi-Fi was also good enough to check email and surf the web but we used our own Wi-Fi to watch Netflix. Cable was also great. The dumpsters were overflowing just about every day during our short stay so they either need to get more dumpsters or get them emptied more often.

They don't have an off leash dog park but there are plenty of areas to walk your dogs, plus they have pooper scoopers and bags placed in areas around the park for you to use. There's a large laundry room and showers near the entrance to the park so if you're in the far end, you probably have to drive. It's a nice park and we had a positive experience with the staff but I disliked having to pay extra for my dogs. This is the first park I've ever had to do that and feel it's a poor business practice so we won't likely return. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were little afraid after we read reviews but we decided to take a chance to stay here and glad that we took that chance. We stayed here for 10days and had a really nice experience at this park. We have 40' RV with two vehicles. Site was leveled and spacious enough for our RV and two cars. Park was very clean and nicely graveled. Laundry and restroom was kept super clean. We got nice reception of WIFI and TV cable. Hiking trail, waterfront, nice restaurants and Costco (which helped a lot while we stayed there) was very close to resort. If we are coming back to this area, we are definitely going to stay here again. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.
