1 Park near Kent, Washington
Apr 2016 - $43.00
I was unhappy with KOA at this campground. Most KOA's are pretty good but this one has many residents it appears. There sites looked like a junk yard, and they are in the front of the campground. Some of the units had been there a long time, flat tires, pop ups with ripped canvas. Our site was big enough for our MH but we had to park our tow at the office. I made the reservation on line so all my information was there on size and slide outs. The staff was friendly and they were working to make the place look better because they said the big boss was coming. Should look good all the time for this rate. All hook-ups worked and glad we were just home basing for the time there. We need to extend an extra day and was told we could not but someone in the back said it was all right for us to extend. They have some issues with the long timers. If back in the area, we will find another campground. Make sure you keep everything locked up. - belanga

We booked a spot for a 40 ft Fifth Wheel, 2 persons and two cats for one week. Price agreed 35 per night since off season.
We never received a confirmation so called (12 times!) - they claimed wrong email when they finally answered. When we received the confirmation - no price, no details etc - called 23 times left messages but no one returned my call. E-mailed three times - no answer Called central office - just apologized for badly run campground but confirmed email address was correct.
Showed up - booking was for a tent (!), one person and no pets and they wanted double the money - went furious and after discussions was given my correct price after showing my emails that were never answered. Site was so small/narrow that it was 9 inches between our slide and the neighbor. We tried to talk to the manager but she was on sick leave. The ONLY positive was that there is a bus outside that takes you to Seattle in 40 min for only 3 bucks. Never ever pay the 60 dollars they ask for, a rip off for sure.
We are full timers and can compare not only to another 79 campgrounds but also to 12 KOA and normally KOA stands for slightly higher price and a higher service and standards. STAY AWAY or get ripped. Even WiFi unusable. Not a co-incidence that they have so low rating even on Tripadvisor.
Sites extremely small, location close to public transportation good, staff uneven, pads even, good water pressure, we had to park the truck away from our site. Park was renting out its green areas to receptions for nearby companies.
Find another campground if you don´t need to be close to Seattle. Do call the central office to get your price confirmed since it is not in the emailed confirmation even though they charge a deposit when you book. - BasilFawlty

We stayed in one of the premium back-in sites since our fifth wheel is 42' long, though they would have let us stay in a pull-through. Other reviewers stating that the sites are small and on top of each other are referring to the pull-throughs. They have approximately eight sites that are longer, wider and are back-ins, but they are more expensive. We had plenty of room in our back-in site. The overall feeling as you drive through the campground is that it is decently maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. When we decided to leave a few days early, they didn't hesitate in giving us a refund for the days we didn't use.
The general area is mostly commercial. Night-time traffic is noisy at times, especially on the weekends. Cars with loud exhausts and motorcycles were often ripping up and down the main road near the campground.
We did have our bicycles stolen from the front of our rig - our first theft of any kind in three years of full-time RVing. The cable lock was cut and the bikes taken sometime in the middle of the night. We informed the front desk just to let them know and they acted surprised that "security" didn't see it happen. We never really saw anything that resembled "security" while we were there.
We have family in the area and will not stay here again. We've already started looking at other places for next year's visit. - travelingtalleys
