This is one of the best RV Parks in the entire Puget Sound area. Most are very poor. We have returned to the Puget Sound area a number of times. We chose to stay near Tacoma because of the activities we were doing.

Very good interior roads. Very good gravel sites. Our back in site was level. The campground is built on a hill, so some sites may experience tilting while parking their rig. The staff was friendly at courteous. The bathrooms were clean. Shopping is about 1.5 miles away. The harbor is only 0.5 miles away. The Cushman bike trail is less than 0.5 miles away.

We would stay here again if our travels took us to the Tacoma area. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Gig Harbor RV Resort is a nice clean park in a lovely setting. The gravel sites are on a hillside surrounded by mature evergreen forest. Our water and electric site was reasonably level. The water pressure and electrical current were good. The WiFi was terrible. Most of the time I relied on my Verizon data account.

I don't really have any complaints about the park per say, however I do think that the use of the word "resort" is stretching things a little. There is no on-site food available. There is no swimming pool. In fact there were no "amenities" at all that we could find. These are just a few of the criteria I look for in a resort. Otherwise the nearby town of Gig Harbor is utterly charming and well worth a long stroll. Parking is very tight, so head to town early. We would probably stay here again. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We've stayed here before and knew pretty much what to expect. It's the only satisfactory park serving Tacoma, or points north such as Bremerton, on the Kitsap Peninsula. Same park, paved roads and gravel sites. The gravel is 2 1/2 inch-minus (large stones) and make walking around the site awkward, even with our Astroturf entry carpet. We had a large site, so I'm sure it was at a premium rate (their brochure and site map don't tell you which sites are 'premium' or 'super premium'). They filled in the pool, so we don't know how this ex-KOA can be called a resort. Water pressure was good and wifi useable. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The ladies who work the reception desk bent over backwards to make sure we felt good about our stay. They called us three times before we arrived, once to make sure we knew we had a site for the whole time and didn't have to move, and twice to make sure we were still coming. Also, to ask our arrival time and give us instructions if we were running late.

The site we had was back in and not level. We have auto-levelers but we still had to use boards. The surroundings are a wooded forest and really very shady and nice.

The bathrooms are clean and secured with a code, which I like. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The Destiny Tour of Gig Harbor (2 hours) is great! Also, the tour of the destroyer SS Taylor Joy (museum ship) is great! We ate at Anthony's in Gig Harbor, can't go wrong there!

Pretty RV park (not a resort) nestled under well-trimmed evergreen trees. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. It is on a hillside so sites are terraced and roads are steep in a couple of places. Office staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was a long, fairly level pull-through with 50 amp. The back-in sites were of various sizes. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were modern and clean. WiFi worked some of the time. The park is less than a mile from downtown Gig Harbor and close to a bike trail.

Larger RVs should use the Burnham Drive exit when arriving from the east.

We enjoyed our stay here and would gladly come back again. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a nice resort just outside the cute town of Gig Harbor. It is very neat and clean. The sites are carved into the hillside and and roomy length-wise, but all different sizes width-wise. Our site was very narrow, but we had a nice area behind the rig to put our chairs. All the sites are gravel although our gravel was golf ball size and hard on the pup's feet. I was careful when I walked, also, so I didn't turn my ankle. There is only one place to hook up the car or unhook it and that blocks the entrance to the resort. I would stay here again because it was very convenient. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

From the campground we drove to Bremerton and took the ferry to Seattle. The whole trip from the campground to Seattle is less than 1 1/2 hours. We also took the boat trip around Gig Harbor at 3:30 and it was very nice and informative.

This campground is in a beautiful setting, large mature trees, hilly terrain with sites terraced into the hills. Many of the sites are hard to get into, we were lucky and our pull through was easy, but was right on top of our neighbor, 4 feet between slides. Road and sites are gravel and not real level. Wi-Fi was weak and the cable had fair reception. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Terraced hillside sites, some better than others some easy access, others more difficult. Very little area that is safe to hook or unhook your toad. Once in place however, a very pretty park with lots of trees. Few sites satellite friendly but they have good cable

We found club house, restrooms, laundry clean with everything working. Not a resort but a nice park. Pool is seasonable. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We called to make reservations nearly a month ahead of time. We were told we couldn't reserve a specific site, but we would get a site meeting our requirements. When we arrived we were told that no pull-through sites were available. When we mentioned that several sites were empty, she said they were reserved. Total disconnect here--we were told we couldn't reserve and yet...

We finally gave up arguing and backed into the site they gave us. Too many trees for satellite, WiFi was very slow, cable was good. Site had enough room to set up chairs outside and put out the awning.

Park personnel did a very good job of cleaning up after guests left, and maintaining the grounds.

We stayed for 10 days, as we had our son flying in, and we wanted to see all the sites in Seattle. We parked in Bremerton, and took the ferry across to Seattle where we picked up transportation to the sites.

Gig Harbor is not a resort by any means, but a decent park.

We found the add-ons for pets and an extra person excessive, and we will not use this park again. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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 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.

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.
