This campground is so beautiful! I enjoyed walking around the meadow hayfield and taking pictures of the mountains. The trails are great for those of us that don't really enjoy strenuous hikes. We went mid June and it rained on us quite a bit, but we made sure to venture out every time the rain let up. The bathrooms were very clean and I believe I paid 75 cents for 3 minutes which was long enough for me. The camp host sells firewood at his site. - Happy Camper 68

Price does not include online "$8 reservation fee." I have stayed in many WA State Parks, and this one is similar to most of the others. Rasar SP is heavily wooded, so the sites offer more privacy than some other State Parks. The W&E site was easy to get into and was reasonably level. We selected a site in easy walking distance to the restroom/shower building. The showers were attractive and clean and even had an adjustable shower head. Sadly someone had partially clogged the drain, so it slowly filled with water during the shower (50 cents (quarters) for 3 minutes). I had to step into the ADA shower to dry off and get dressed to keep my feet out of the flood. But by the time I left, the water had receded. I was unable to find anyone to report the problem to... (due to the nature of the slow fill and eventual draining, it was likely not immediately obvious to the service staff). Otherwise, this was an attractive and very pleasant Washington State park. - Pete_by_the_river

Really nice park with lots of privacy in most. Clean grounds, restrooms where spotless. Price defects reservation fee. Arrived early, but someone had not left yet. So hiking was next. Park sits along Skagit River, park has a large field. Saw no elk, or eagles during stay. Returned later for my site. Owner was not to found, and that's when staff got me another site, and firewood. Service was excellent. Across road are some beautiful group sites, and a few cabins. - NXTSTOP

This KOA/Thousand Trails was a disappointment. The pull thru 50 amp site we requested had untrimmed trees which prevented us from getting into it. They moved us to a back in 30 amp site which did not have one blade of grass on it. It was impossible to keep the dirt outside and we certainly would be in a mess if it rained. There was very little grass on most sites.
Personnel was extremely rude. There is no office. You call on a speaker from a locked gate (sign says NO check-ins before noon) and they drive up in a golf cart to assist you. They will fine you $25 if you go over 5 mph. They have ALOT of strange rules here. This seems to be the only big rig accessible park in the area so if you wish to see North Cascades National Park this is it. We will not return. - Freedom Bus

Nice shaded site, plenty of room on both sides of the camper, and an overall nice park. No cable or OTA channels though. Away from major roads so nice and quiet. Relaxing campground and heavily used but because it is so large it did not seem crowded.
We would definitely stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

We stayed in the deluxe cabin, but owning an RV, I observed the site conditions as well. I thought the sites were adequately spaced and the grounds did have quite a number of very large old trees. Not sure how that would effect bigger rigs, but there were plenty of them here. The place was full on a weekend. I saw the tent sites were really close to the yurts, so maybe avoid a yurt. We had virtually no hot water in our cabin, so not a good value if you want a hot shower. Spike strip at the entrance, so be sure to go in the right direction or you will end up with shredded tires. Not sure why they feel the need for this, have never seen this before. Lots of rules and badgering employees. - MeetTheGriswolds

Lots of permanent residents. But great to be sitting in the middle of tall pine trees. Breeze blowing and loved noise through trees. Manager very nice. Quiet park.
We had just come from Canada for a month and pretty much living off the grid. So nice to have 150+ cable channels & WiFi. - Long01

We were the only transients in the park. Nice tall pine trees, soft pine needles on the ground. The spot we were in required leveling. Had to use WiFi repeater to get good internet. Host very pleasant and helpful. Good water pressure. Nice overnight stop on way to Seattle area. We would stay here again. - Jim Lee

Tried to get a 50 amp site but they only have 2. Mostly long term residents in poor trailers. Lots of trees, cable TV worked well as did the WIFI. No dog park but places to walk the dogs outside the park. - ChiefUSN

The back section (across the bridge) is new, open: spacious big rig sites. Good 50 amps. Level gravel sites with new tables, patio and grass. It is quite a contrast from the front section. Very quiet country setting. Dog park and lots of area to walk the pooch. - Freedom Bus

Really nice RV park. We stayed in the new part in back and it was quiet and clean with all kinds of room for big rigs. Very pet friendly. We were able to get lots of walks in with our two little Airedales. It was a little bit pricy, but we would definitely stay here again. This is a beautiful park! - Trackman

Laundry room smelled like a litter box. Staff in general were not very friendly. Roads are very narrow and the campers are very inconsiderate for the most part. If you are parked in the last row in a big rig then good luck getting out of the park. You have to drive the wrong way on a one-way street that has trucks and cars blocking your path. To access the dump station you have to drive through an open lot in the tent area and move the rocks out of the way around the dump. We will not stay there again. - Norm Nice Guy

First time using a Thousand Trails site, so did not understand how it works! First timers ask lots of questions! Found out upon arrival that the site did not include dump services, water and electric only, fortunately a dump site on the grounds. At check-in we were told to go pick out our own site, which took us an hour of driving through the grounds to finally find a suitable open site. The worst part DUST! People in general drive slowly, but even at 5 mph clouds of dust blow, all the plants around our site are covered with dust. Moments ago a large class A drive by exceeding the speed limit creating a huge cloud of dust everywhere! The pool and Jacuzzi are full of children, so not welcoming for 55+ travelers. Will avoid 1000 Trails in the future!! - Edwards-JV

The camp was very overcrowded, and the Hot Tub or Spa was closed which is the reason for the 7 on the review. There was also lots of traffic noise at 1/4 of the campsites located next to I-5 corridor. - Michael Conrad

The dust here is significant, the roads should have been paved/oiled long ago. Our new RV received layers of dust in the new window ledges quickly. VERY hard to breath when outside due to all the traffic dust. 2 out of 3 staff members seemed stern. Checking in: more intense than I was ready for, for this was supposed to be a fun visit. The proof of insurance requirement we've never faced anywhere before for a short stay surprised us; we were unaware of this requirement at reservation time or website. Left you feeling stressed out, "What if we didn't have the insurance?" If it's on their website, it wasn't visible to us. We also were not told while making the reservation that there were no sewer-available slots. Front desk offers a slot map with the yellow slots supposedly containing sewer availability; all others must go to a dump station no matter how large the RV is. Desk staff circled 2 as possibly available, with sewer. This map is misleading for we found every single sewer site had fully set up rigs appearing to have been there quite a while & not going anywhere any time soon. I was disappointed at the misleading nature of the map. Ours is 36-40 feet, it was an undertaking to haul this enormous RV to waste dump.
The roads are WAY WAY too dusty, and this is no kidding REALLY DUSTY here: for breathing, for cleanliness for your RV, etc. It was miserable even walking out to get into the truck to go to town. I would not want to stay here again.
50 amp plug electrical hookups, there are none. We used a 50 to 30 adapter and watched the use of electrical things inside so we didn't cause a short.
This park is a long way from Anacortes and isn't Mt. Vernon. We traveled about 25 minutes to Anacortes each day.
Positives, the park is forested, has a kind of neat feel about that aspect. The last day (June 12), we found a positive-natured employee supportive of our need to depart a little later due to some hitch mechanical issue. - nightofstars

Located on a corner next to a ma and pa's restaurant. Resembles a parking lot. Kind of depressing to look at. - johnpmcelroy

Interior roads are tight. We had a pull-through that was plenty long for our motorhome and toad. Sites are close together. - DreamCaptn

This was our first time here. For us this place was perfect as a kick off for future RV trips, as from Canada we have to stock up on groceries right away and it is fantastic Walmart is so close.
Pros: allowed 11 pm arrival, clean, very quiet, walking distance to Walmart Supercenter, pleasant manager, pull through site, easy accesss and exit, easy access to highway but could not hear the traffic, level site.
Cons: It did not hit any of the negatives that bother me. - Fuelled by Caffeine

We stayed at the Riverbend RV Park for 5 days in our 40' RV. Check in was a little confusing even with our reservation. The guy checking us in was so not professional. There was no information about the camp and his book keeping was all over the place in the office. The office itself gave us a total picture of what to expect while we were there. They accept mail delivery which was a big help traveling for a year. Getting to our site was easy and pulling in to our pull thru was not a problem although the sites are close to one another. There room for your slide outs and awnings. The sites are not level so you may need blocks or levelers. The utilities were all in the right place and in working order. Our satellite worked fine as did our Verizon hot spot. The ground around the camp especially where your side door is can be extremely un- level and hard to walk on without falling into a hole. There were full time residents in this park but, they were not too badly kept. There is a river behind the park that we saw on google earth but, you cannot get to it which would have been nice knowing before we booked. There is a Walmart across the street and lots of places to eat. There is also a camping world close by. We would probably pick one of the many other parks to stay at next time. - SteelHorseRider

Returned again as part of the annual NATCOA Fall Colors rally. Sadly, the outhouse was no longer there (Its a portable unit), so you must be self contained, especially in the late part of the open season. Also, large sections of some of the larger sites had pounded from the recent rains and could do with a fresh coat of gravel to make them usable during inclement weather. There are several sites that border above the river with a wonderful view, but no way down to the river below from the sites. - The Redneck Express

Sauk Park is a primitive campground that's part of the Skagit County Parks system. It's technically a subsidiary park of Howard Miller State Park, as both are maintained by Rusty Reagan. This primitive camping at its best, campfires, smores, thick tree canopy of large firs, the roar of the Sauk river adjacent to the park. Toilet facilities consist of a standard plastic porta-toilet, similar to the kind you see at fairs, but in far cleaner shape, there is only one. This park is not recommended for long trailers, or 5th wheels, or giant motorhomes. Smaller Trailers, Truck Campers and Class C Motorhomes would be able to navigate the park without problem. Sauk Park is open seasonally -- April 15 through October 31. This is subject to earlier openings and later closings as weather conditions allow. Please call Rusty Reagan at 853-8808 for any and all updates. The nearest dump station is down the road at Howard Miller State Park. POLICIES: Camp in designated sites only, Self-Pay camp fee $5.00/night, Maximum of 14 days, Quiet time 10:00 PM - 8:00 AM, Dogs must be on leash, Alcohol regulations strictly enforced. - The Redneck Express

Small park with many seasonal and permanent residents but everything is kept very neat and tidy. Manager makes sure all rules are followed. Sites are close but okay. Easy for a big rig to get in and out. Conveniently located to Anacortes, Burlington, North Cascades National Park. No walking areas except the road around the park. Small fenced dog area. Wifi worked well. Cannot reserve a particular site and pull-thrus are not guaranteed, but we were lucky to get a very easy-to-access pull-thru. Would stay again. - all4pets

The park is mostly seasonal, but well kept. We return time and again on shopping trips or when passing through. Available sites are few and gravel, but most all pull through and level. Away from the I5, but you should like trains. Other than that, quiet and friendly. A nice, secluded spot. - BMonk

Stayed here last spring overnight northbound and again this fall southbound. A small park with lots of longer-stay RVs, so reservations are a must for the remaining spaces. Twisty-turny off I-5 through town and over the bridge. Great spot for an overnight stay. Friendly staff. Good, secure WiFi. Some train noise may bother very light sleepers Pads were gravel and level. Services are at the back of the sites. Washrooms were small, but spotless. - wfgk

We booked a spot at Steelhead park and were OK with it. When we arrived it was very clean. What we didn't like is that no longer than five minutes after setting up our site a guy came by on a golf cart and said we need to put the dog on a leash at all times and we have to be quiet after 10:00. Well that just blew it for our group. We just got out of the city to get away from rules and regulations and enjoy the outdoors, fat chance that was going to happen here. we asked for our money back for one night of the two nights we booked, we paid for one of the nights as we arrived so just to say after 5 to 15 minutes of being there they would not give our money back. Another thing we were unhappy about is that the sites are so close to each other that if you spit the wrong way you would probably hit someone in a site next to you. Well we left without our money and went down the road to another campground. The bottom line is if you want to sit in your RV, hear every word your neighbors are saying, keep your dog locked up and sit in the hot sun with very little tree coverage, Steelhead park will be great for you or church outings. - troydaman

Beautiful campground on the river. Sites are level and paved with grass, fire pit and picnic tables. Lots of fisherman out to snag a salmon or two, and the fall leaves were gorgeous. Very peaceful and a good place to camp if you are planning a North Cascades trip. - veedubwesty

I really like this park. A beautiful park like setting right on the Skagit River. Asphalt roads and asphalt level sites, 30 and 50 amp service, tons of water pressure, and clean bathrooms and showers. The bathrooms and showers are older but absolutely spotless. Most of the sites are pull thru. The few back in sites are my favorites since they back right up to the river. The only downsides here are a lack of privacy between sites, no sewer hookups, and no wifi. If it had sewer and wifi, I would give it a 10. (The park Ranger says the wifi is being installed). Howard Miller beats the two State parks in the area hands down. - whizbang
