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 camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
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. 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. 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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
