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. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The location was perfect for our one day adventure into Seattle to visit the Fish Market and see the Space needle. Then the next day we went to Tacoma for a wedding at the zoo. We'll be back to see the car and glass museum but we'll not stay at this KOA again.

We were here over the July 4th weekend. Plenty to do, including fireworks on the 4th. But all pull-through sites are extremely tight. Most tow vehicles have to park in the narrow streets between rows of pull-throughs. Many motorhomes had to back up to get out of their sites. Sites have picnic tables, but they sit next to the neighbor's sewer connection. WiFi was decent (surprising for TengoInternet), but the limited cable was a terrible picture on most channels. Antennas work better and give more channels. Not up to KOA standards. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This KOA is in Kent Wa, convenient to interstate. It is a very busy and crowded KOA. Sites are pretty tight, and you are right on top of your neighbors. They utilize every spare spot for overflow RVers or tenters, including the lawn area in the back entrance to office and laundry. Kind of strange since that area is also next to theplayground. There is alot of turnover so I expect most are here for overnights only. There were ome seasonal looking sites. Staff were friendly and very accomodating. We were originally booked for 2 weeks but a problem with our RV put it in the repair shop for almost that length of time. They cheerfully gave us a complete refund. We ended up only taking one night. They were great about that! All around, nice park. Laundry room could use some sprucing up, and it's small. Would stay here again. Nicely stocked campstore. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Motorhome.

Arrived to find RVs "dry camping" in the check-in lane. After finding a place to park, we stepped out of the coach and were "greeted" by a strong urine smell. The lady who checked us in was very pleasant and gave good advice about visiting Seattle. The $1.50 per day pet charge was apparently used to support the filthy, poop littered fenced pet area. We entered, promptly left, and walked our dogs on the green belt trail that is conveniently located to the campground. The campground is very dirty and tents were scattered over the lawn by the pool and playground. It appeared the owners were trying to cram in as many RV and tent campers as possible. We have stayed in quite a few KOAs but never in one like this. Had we another option in the area, we would have left the day after checking in. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A bus stop is conveniently located to the campground. Metro Bus #180 takes you to the Seattle airport where you can connect with the light rail into Seattle. The green belt trail is convenient for walkers, runners, and bikers. There's an REI, Costco, and other convenient shopping destinations close by.

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. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Motorhome.

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). We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The park was nicely landscaped but all the sites were too small. Many had no room to park tow vehicle. The park's sites were too crammed together. Inner roads were very narrow as well as the sites. They were also too short. The whole park is definitely afire hazard. I wouldn't recommend this park. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

At first reading all the other reviews we almost didn't bother with this place but I had a work meeting so we had to stay here. Worried, we drove to the park but once there we realized that it is just fine. The office people were fine, the park looks fine, the driveways are ok, not the widest we have seen but we have a 41 ft motorhome and had not problem. We got site 153 (back in) and had at least 8-10 feet between our slides to our neighbors beside. Not sure what with the other reviews??

$60 plus tax is steep so we will not stay here again.

There is some road noise but not major problem. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Motorhome.

Filthy. Sewer smelled surround our site. Neighbors had to take awing down so we could park. Other vehicles had to move so RV's and trailers could get in and out of the sites. Poorly maintained. Embarrassed to have visitors. Never stay here, and will share this info with all our friends in the RV clubs. We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Motorhome.

If you must stay close to Seattle, this is the only game in town. Really tight, could hardly get my slide out,and was blocked in buy a huge 5th wheel. I had to back out. Office person on duty had a line and the manager could see the line and just sat in her office.

If this is a coporate park you would think that they would put more pride in the park. As a VIP KOA member, this is the worst! We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Motorhome.

Seattle / Tacoma KOA was the last RV park we stayed in on our way home from a 14-month-long road trip around the U.S. that included 118 campground stays. I would rate it in the bottom 10 of all the places we camped. It's the most overpriced, overcrowded, under-staffed, dirty and poorly maintained KOA campground we stayed in for sure. There's barely enough room between spaces for a picnic table. Not enough room to put out the awning. And parking for tow vehicles is so minimal that everyone sticks out into the lanes, making for very tight maneuvering. Entry to the campground was often blocked because there are inadequate check-in lanes-making it a hassle to get to our campsite. WiFi was very poor. Cable TV was the bare minimum of stations. Staff was friendly enough but stretched thin by the number of people trying to check in.

Last, but not least, the $57 per night charge for this dump is outrageous! We camped at Seattle / Tacoma KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Absolutely the worst rv park I've ever been in. Dirty, crowded, tiny sites, on top of your neighbor. Roads made for cars not rvs, parking is awful. Sites are too small to keep your towed vehicle by you, terrible location in a residential area with nothing Seattle even remotely close by. I can't believe KOA has thier name on this place.
