The campground is very tight you are right on top of your neighbor. Made me think of sardines. Not sure how the bigger rigs can get in and out when the campground is full. We had a situation come up and needed to leave a day early and I was happy to get out. The cable TV is very limited, which is OK but the reception was terrible. The WiFi is TengoInternet, which we always have problems with but this time it did work for emails very adequately. They do have a pet area for our dog to go off leash. - Tagil

Wow. They are taking greed to a whole new level here. Overflow was everywhere (and they were paying 37 dollars for the privilege). "Packed in" would be an understatement. Overflow parked on every inch of grass, every curb, every possible place. For those who DID have a site there was very little water, I'm guessing it was because they were over their head. Plan on (slowly) filling up your tank and using your own pump for anything useful like dishes or a shower.
My neighbor had a lazy boy, a full sized refrigerator, wood furniture, etc., etc., in his small campsite. Enough said.
That said, if they would curb the overflow and monitor what is going on in their campground this place would rank better. I've stayed in the winter and it was fine, (but they don't reduce their prices much). - Oregon Ms

Nice park, good staff. One must take into account that this is one of the oldest campgrounds in the area of which there are not many. It is very convenient to the city. It was designed with much smaller RV's in mind, not 40FT+ motor homes. It is tight and close, but clean and well kept. Let's face it, your not staying here to enjoy the KOA. You are staying here to be close to the city. So get over it being tight. The staff was outstanding. The facilities that we used (almost none), were clean and well kept. We left our MH for a week while taking a cruise and would not have a problem doing it again. - Rick & Gail

I rated this low. For $25/night it had to be the worst WA state park we have ever stayed in. Sites 1-4 are the ones where supposedly the large RVs should be. They are as close together as any commercial campground, so no privacy, noise from your neighbor's generator, etc. There were other pull through sites that would have worked. The website just didn't show they were available for larger rigs, but we saw a RV larger than ours on one of them, That would have been a much more pleasant spot with a little more privacy. $25/night for no hooks and no working dump station felt like it was priced too high. You also get charged extra if you are not a WA state resident and want to make a reservation. Unlike most Western WA state parks, there is little or no vegetation between any of the RV sites in this park. Only sites with any privacy are in the tent or very small class B RV area. You are in the flight path of SeaTac so you do get that noise. On the plus side, nice hiking trail in the park and easy walk to the beach area. Probably not a park we'll stay in again. - DRFink

Nice woodsy park between Seattle and Tacoma. We were in a 45' motorhome and except for one tight turn because of a parked camper sticking out, I was able to navigate thru the park and to the campsite with care, but no problem. The showers do not work (was told by camp host). The place is a bit overgrown. I had to trim a tree as not to scrape going into my site. Site 1 - 4 are best for big rigs. Easy to back in to and easy to pull out. No hookups (as advertised) and a good price. The beach is great. A nice paved path along the waterfront is nice. A good restaurant called Wally's Chowder House a couple of miles away was wonderful. The park is great for camping. Just not very well maintained with the lack of budget in the WA State Park System. - JoeVinnie

The park was extremely well maintained. There were many trails to explore, and the beach access had excellent low-tide pooling for investigation. Our site right next to the creek was wonderful. Detractions included the airline traffic heading to/from Seatac (pretty minor, but noticeable) and the dry camping (offset by running a generator to recharge batteries). - bradrf

Sites are not all that wide here. We had people sitting only a couple of feet away from us near their fire ring. We could not open any windows because of the smoke from their fire. Kind of a sketchy place, but we had no problems. There are people living in tents here who spend 7 nights, leave for 1 and then come back. Sites are mostly level and paved. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. OTA TV was poor, no networks found. We had ION and a couple of PBS type stations. Not a place we are likely to return to, but our stay was acceptable. - Bob and Inga

Dogs barking (pit bulls), campers burning garbage (stinks) One trailer was allowing their tanks to drain onto campsite and running into street. Sites are long enough for big rigs. 7 day limit. Some trailers were really run down. We will not be back unless we have to. We usually stay at the Puyallup Fairgrounds but couldn't because the fair was going on. - catrst

What a gem this place is. We were a little underwhelmed when we arrived but the surroundings are beautiful and it was a wonderful place to stay. Sites are asphalt and level. Stayed for 5 days. Loved the bike/walking path. Can ride for miles along the river and through the trees without crossing a road! If you are into disc golf this is the place for you! Grass is brown because they don't water but the trees are magnificent. It must be beautiful in the fall. They do keep the trees trimmed so they don't rub on your rig. We had no problem with our 38' class A motorhome. Camp host is a great guy. No wifi but Verizon LTE is strong and hotspot worked great. Our Directv roof mounted dish also worked great, even through the trees. Nice to have shade at our site #12. It's about a 45 minute drive to downtown Seattle and if I came back I would look into the public transportation as an option to driving. - thekites

A small park with a very nice owner. Most of the sites have full-time residents. The place is quiet, but doesn’t have much in the way of amenities (picnic area with a horseshoe pit), but the price was right. There is also a nice grass volleyball court and a pond to sit by on the owners adjoining property. - Travelin'

For a Sunrise park I was very disappointed! The sites are so close together couldn't put out awning. Campers are just stuck anywhere they can get a spot. Lots of people living there and leaving at 5-6 am and noisy. No sewer, electric was ok..30 amp, no wifi. Very, very run down; deck ready to fall in water. Buildings look like haven't been cleaned or used in years. Only good thing was lady in office was very nice. - DebT

Yikes, what happened to this place? We have stayed here several times in the past, this time it is quite different. The park is full, but many appear to be seasonals. Packed in like sardines. Sewer no longer functional, all sealed up. 30 amp is poor 106 volts. water pressure is ok, AT&T ok, park wifif non existent. we stayed here in a 40 ft MH, we will be looking for an alternative the next time we come up here. - walt66

We were in space 1. No trees, picnic table or fire pit. We felt like we were in a driveway!
Power went out. One of the other guests had to trip the fuse box as power went off and no one was in office. They left before 6pm.
Only one sewer dump. - Judy2shoes

This is camping for Elks members only . I consider this urban camping at its best. We stayed here five days; it was convenient to relatives house and also attractions in Seattle. If at all possible try to get the sites further back from the main street traffic; traffic is somewhat steady till late in the evening. There's also some walking residents that cut through the parking lot from the apartment complex behind the Elks Lodge. Sometimes you question first impressions, but there were no issues with anybody and everything was quiet and safe . I did ask the bartender inside the Elks, if they'd ever had any issues with vandalism. He said in the three years he had been there he had not experienced any so that was a good sign. Remember to call ahead as there are only eight sites there and it seems like people tend to stay for longer periods than what I normally see. I would try to get sites one through five if possible. There was a vacancy when we got there on a Friday which worked out for us, but nobody left till we left five days later. All utility hookups are in back of your parking spot which is a back-in, so plan accordingly. You may need longer sewer hoses, water hoses etc. but everything worked fine for us. I would say this, if you plan on camping here make sure you are comfortable with backing up in tight spots on a incline. Your spots are level, but you're on a grade backing in; tow car hook up and disconnect can be an issue. We used the fire lane for a short period of time. I would stay here again if in the area. - monaco cruiser

Except for bath/shower bldg, which was cleaned daily, this campground is not well maintained. Sites are small; large rigs had significant trouble navigating the curved roads & trees (this park works for modest-sized rigs); several rundown rigs were using the max 10-night stay; several feral (?) cats. Asphalt pads in disrepair. Thorny wild berry plants encroaching into site & long overdue for trimming. Lots of air traffic noise from nearby Sea-Tac airport. No garbage cans anywhere except at restroom. Beautiful path to Puget Sound shore. Not worth the fee & hassle of the required online reservation procedure. - Taco stand

This is a beautiful spot! Beware - it is not big rig friendly. There is only 1 site for a big rig (#49). After you come into the campground, do not drive around the circle as the trees, overhead branches and corners are tight. You can back into the site directly from in front of the cabins. This site is along the amphitheater which gives extra room. It is a very wooded campground, but we were able to get satellite. Full 50 amp hook-ups. We made this reservation 6 months ago and are certainly glad we did. It is a hidden gem that is close to seeing everything in Tacoma and Seattle. Check-in is at 2:30! We never saw a campground host or anyone at the gate. - Freedom Bus

Large site and with fifth wheel parked, it made a very private area with rig parked between site and road. Quiet, full hookup but very popular area. Reservations suggested. I made mine in March for July and 6 days was the longest "open" time. - Edd505

The best thing about this park is the location. Easy access right off Hwy 90, withing a few miles of shopping, restaurants etc., nice walking path across the street.
Sites are paved, close together, with a picnic table. There are back in and pull thru sites. Restrooms are clean and nice. Office staff is friendly and helpful. Wifi worked most of the time, but was intermittent. Cable TV worked fine.
There is highway noise, and it is very loud, and it is pricey, but I would stay here again for the convenience of being near family. - trussman

Not a fancy park. No frills. But you can't beat the location to Seattle. Paved surfaces. Big rig friendly. Nearby walking biking path. - Cake on the beach

This was our second stay at this park, as our son's family lives nearby in Sammamish. I agree the sites are very close to each other, but nothing that we have not experienced in over 15 years of RV traveling. Since the weather is normally cloudy, rainy, you most likely would not be outside anywhere in the Seattle area (depending on the time of the year). We did not feel the freeway noise was that unbearable. But the great thing is there is a very long paved walking/bike path (over several miles) outside the park, near the freeway (but protected by altitude and fence) that our dog loves walking on, plus the scenery is wonderful. The staff is without a doubt most pleasant we have also met, and really makes you feel welcome. Hey they even gave me a FREE stamp so I could mail a birthday card. We would definitely stay here again. - mandrgames

It is a paved parking lot next to highway. The spots are the tightest we've ever experienced. No shade to speak of. This was last minute for us and the office personnel did a great job to accommodate us. Convenient to Seattle. Shopping nearby. - smitty12

Nothing special about this park, as others have reviewed. The park is conveniently located, right off I-90, which also contributes to the noise factor. We were camping in a 24' travel van, so we're given a space right across from the office. At first, we were unhappy with this location, then came to realize it was the best for least road noise. No privacy whatsoever and no picnic table, but this was not that kind of trip. Two nights here was plenty, but we spent all day outside the park. It's not a place you want to hang out in. Good for what it was, though. There is an indoor pool and large laundry room, which we didn't use. - PrtlndTrvlr

This is an urban RV park. The sites are very close, completely paved so no grass, some trees and the majority are permanent residents. There is a play area for children and an indoor pool which we did not use and I am not sure is open for use. If you are a light sleeper or traveling with dogs that require a mile long walk this is not the RV park for you. The dog walk area is outside the RV park gate on 1 side only and measures approximately 100'X25'. There are waste bags readily available but some ignorant owners feel they do not have to comply and I find that disgusting. There is a sidewalk that you can walk your pet but it borders business's and once again some left dog waste.
There is non-stop road noise from very busy I-90 that is next to the 2 one way roads in front of the RV park. If you require quiet surroundings to get to sleep this is not the RV park for you.
The people at the office are very helpful with information on getting into Seattle etc.. We opted to drive the short distance to the East Gate park & ride and ride the express bus into Seattle each day. You can walk or ride you bike to this location also. We are both in our 60's and the fare is $1 per person each way and parking is free. Great deal when you do not have to deal with all the traffic going into the city and premium price to park your car. The people in the RV office will provide you with paperwork detailing bus times & stops. One word of advice is to arrive at the park & ride before 11 AM otherwise you may not get a parking spot.
This RV park fit our needs which was to be close enough to Seattle to avoid an hour long commute. We hired a dog service to come to our motorhome twice a day to walk our dog to allow us flexibility. This worked perfectly.
We would stay here again if we find ourselves in this area again. - petpeople

The sites are wide and there is a pool and showers. However, after we got our motorhome leveled off and slide outs extended we discovered that there are NO WATER connections at the sites. All plastic pipes above ground have been broken at each site. Camp Host offered no realistic explanation, nor was there a note in the sign up box to that effect. There is a fresh water spigot near the dump station, but who knew we needed to fill up before setting up ? There are showers available for use but they're not in great shape. We will not return to this Elks Lodge unless the water issue is corrected. - RVtravelers2

30 Amp with Water and easy access Dump station. Showers available when the pool is open or just ask and they will let you use them. Grass spots with enough room that makes it comfortable. We eat Sunday breakfast and had dinner a couple of times. They have a golf course next to them that is private but they have an arrangement so that if you are staying there you can use it. Swimming pool available showers are available in the pool house if you ask.
I can only give an overall grade of 8 to any site that does not have sewer connection at the pad. But other than that this is a 10 site. - Gilbert & Gail
