Extremely nice park......with an extremely rude manager as of Feb 2016. - Michael Conrad

We stayed over Thanksgiving and were to have Thanksgiving dinner pot luck style, but when asked what time dinner would be, we were told it had been canceled due to an equipment failure. That would have been ok, except they knew days before and did not take time to notify incoming guests of the problem. Manager was very rude and could care less about what guests thought. Lot spacing was nearby and mostly shady. Site surfaces were gravel and dirt. - doit

First, the good. Verizon MiFi and cell phone worked perfectly. Water pressure is 70 PSI.
Now, the bad. This park is now 30% allocation of 30 spaces for "annual" leases. Many of these individuals work local construction jobs and stated how much it cost to rent an apartment locally and living here is much cheaper. Children are met at the school bus by the ranger and some of the children are left alone until 10 PM, when parents work afternoon shift. The weekend is a free for all as "daily pass" guests take over the pools and showers. Grass is knee deep in some places, the backhoe grades a ditch down the center of the street trying to keep water runoff out of sites and when you remove the thirty annual and the live-in rangers, very few sewer sites are available. Per the ranger, the jets in the hot tub has not worked since before it was closed last Sept. and Thousand Trails will not approve the cost to repair them now. Dirt and debris collect in the bottom. This park has become nothing more than a low cost apartment alternative. Thousand Trails is intent on converting their parks to this type of clientele. Buy another membership. This one is going downhill rapidly. - Eureka12

After searching for the RV campground, which was not signed, I called the fairgrounds during their regular business hours, but they did not answer. They did eventually return my call at ten AM the next day. I ,along with two other people in RVs, finally found the site. They had tried to call also, but with no success. I stayed in campsite 213. When I arrived another person was in my site. The camp host was nowhere to be found so I spent the first night in site 214. The next day the "host" was still nowhere to be found. Finally the site i was supposed to be in was vacated. I moved over. The tree behind my site had branches sticking in to my space, and it did not allow me to fit in to the space all the way. I parked a little ways out in to the lane that circled the campground. The site was level, and gravel with no pot holes. The utilities box was in good repair, as were the hydrants. There were no clear site boundaries, but there were some faded chalk lines. People with dogs off leash were prominent, despite the signs stating dogs must be on leash. The sites were lit by street lights, and the lights did not turn off. This made it difficult to sleep at night. - Zach Merritt

We reserve the same site 2 to 3 times a year to attend races at the adjacent Evergreen Motor Speedway. If you don't like racing noise, avoid this place on weekends. This is a fairgrounds so no tables or fire pits, but sites are wide, clearly marked and most will easily accommodate large rigs. Minimal leveling will be required on most sites. The host, a lovely lady, is the most accommodating and helpful you will find. - Procarver

Stayed for week, close to shopping and restaurants. Fairgrounds available for camping. Check with office about dates. Not many roomy RV sites in Seattle area. About 1 hour north of Seattle. Water and electric, about 35 local over the air Channels. No WiFi. Verizon strong. Dog friendly Monroe Golf Course and Blue Boy West Golf Course about 5 miles away. - silverado

We took the 15 miles detour from I-5 because we are always looking for quiet places to spend the night. That's what we got. Tucked away in the woods and far from all shopping amenities. The paved road through the park is very tight and winding. We had to take it really slow with our 34' trailer in tow. Maneuvering into the back in site was tight as well, but we managed. Don't take anything bigger in there.
Sites are gravel and fairly level. No water in the park this time of the year. We knew and had the fresh water tank filled before. Power was stable. Verizon signal strong and steady. Very quiet at night, no traffic noise and no train noise whatsoever.
We'll come back when travelling in the area. - TheSchweitzers

No sewer. Hot showers (coin), but restrooms can be muddy from rainy days and/or lake swimmers. Hilly park roads. Beautiful woodsy sites. Best kept secret: reserve for 4th of July and get a front-row seat on beach for spectacular fireworks show, with homes around the lake competing for most money spent in professional fireworks. - User3773
Aug 2010 - $28.00
Very tight driveway to the sites, and we, with a 29 foot trailer and crew cab truck, probably would not fit in many spaces. We had to pay for a premium site, which was not anything above the others, but we fit. Could not get satellite TV as the trees are thick, which would be good on a hot day, but it was raining while we were there and it was quite a mess. Long narrow roads to get there once you leave Highway 2, and hard to get back on Highway 2 going east once you leave; too much traffic. - djtel

Interior roads are tight but there are no problems with turns or trees. Sites are tight - trees on each side provide privacy. Site was slightly off level. Waste hookup is at the very rear of site. Most trash cans of any park we have been in. Cable is included but you only get one hour of free wi-fi. CG is next to road but because of surrounding "forest", it's very quiet. - Rd yacht

Camped here in a 42 foot 5th wheel. This park is in a tight area however our back in sight was long enough for both the truck and RV. This park gets downgraded mainly for a couple of things: Very poor cable TV package (hardly any channels at all) and very poor Internet/wifi reception/policy. Price above includes paying extra for one week of Tengonet and it was very slow! The park is very clean and green, however with a lot of ducks walking around, one can guess at what is always around. The park is convenient to Safeway for diesel and groceries and plenty of eateries. The traffic is awful in the area. The park has a nice information center but no real clubhouse. Our site was blacktop but did not have a patio. - DIXIEDUALLY2013

Easy access from highway, shopping, bus transportation if needed. Very well maintained. Nice trails to walk dogs. Laundry facilities clean and good prices. - Junia

There is a big open field in the middle between all the campsites and several bike trails through the area. It's a pretty, and a relaxing place. However the only dump station nearby is at the same business that runs the laundry. Both are expensive. - Keystone Trail

This is a very small campground. All sites are pull-through off the circle drive so they are an odd shape. Full hook ups. Very quiet. There is a historical bridge on the property over a river. Very pretty. The sites aren't quite level. Verizon signal was excellent. - Susan C.

This is a fantastic campground, and is one of our favorites so far. The RV part of the campground is 16 sites, all crescent pull-throughs along the outside edge of a giant loop with a huge grass field in the middle. This means we had other RVs about 30 feet behind us and in front of us, but none on either side of us. The camping side of each site has a grass area with picnic table and fire ring but a heavily wooded border, so we had nearly complete privacy during our stay. It's a short walk down to the Tolt river where our dogs went swimming every day among various families staying at the campground or using the river for day use. The sites along the west side (the river) have good shade in the late afternoon and the most privacy. To sum up, it's a beautiful nature setting with huge sites, lots of grass and trees, very dog friendly, and has an accessible river with beach to top it all off. The park was sold out for the weekend but there were always sites available during weekdays. We made a reservation for a week (discounted weekly rate shown above, no extra taxes/fees), which is the maximum time you can stay in one site. Sites have 50 amp and water, but no sewer. There is a $9 commercial dump station (cash only via honor system envelopes) at the park exit. One downside is that there is only one shower per gender at the bathhouse, so we often had to wait quite a while for showers. Also, they clean the bathrooms once a day. With all the campers, that meant the showers got dirty quickly. We had very strong AT&T signal, our Verizon worked but was a little weak. Also be sure to note that the park gates are locked at 10 PM during the summer. We had to cut short an evening out with friends to ensure we made it back in time. Not only would we stay here again, we're looking forward to it! - LifeRebooted

Where to start with my comments. First the website falsely leads you to believe that this is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay near the water. 2 out of the 4 photos are not from the park. Out of the sites they have only 5 or so we're available for over night stays. This is 90% permanent stays, although they are mostly tidy in appearance. This place is WAY overpriced for the type of park and experience. Based on where we have stayed on this trip and what we have paid at other places this is outrageous! The sites are gravel and very close together and we had concerns about getting our 40' bus out of the lot. There are not many options in town and we planned on visiting Seattle so for a base camp was ok. We would not stay here again. The manager was helpful but very concerned with the actual age of our coach and didn't know what a conversion was to understand the look of our setup. Although he later explained that the older motor homes have propane systems that don't meet their insurance standards. He almost turned us away without explaining that when we were making reservations. - KellyLynnHoff

This is an update on some two year old reviews. This is an OK park. A very friendly and helpful manager. Sites are gravel with paved roads, they are 20-25ft wide and 38ft plus deep. There are 10 pull through sites that are 25ft by 75ft. There are long stay units but the only items stored outside was lawn furniture. There were no safety concerns in our 4 night stay. Free WiFi is slow but OK. There is only one unisex toilet/ shower that is disabled set up. All cars/ RVs parked off road. We have a 44ft 5er and maneuvering was tight, but big motor homes would have no trouble. The landscaping could certainly use some attention. - TedandJan

Rented space for a month. Price quoted does not factor in $20 to read electric box, $25 for two rigs (including the one you pull with). Overflow parking, 5 spaces. Even tho they take all info down your rigs may not fit the space. Might have to drive your 2nd vehicle to park elsewhere. Hwy 99 is six lanes here, getting out is difficult even in a car. Washing machines were dirty with a sign that said "Please wipe down when finished", they obviously don't clean them. One dumpster for 65 sites, full before pick-up day. Gravel, no grass. Friendly manager, but this park has problems. - rainyday

Advertised cable... ha ha! If you like the emergency alert station and xfinity infomercials. 3 stations in total. Don't advertise cable if you don't have it.
Internet; they should really get their money back from their non service provider. Couldn't log on the two evenings we stayed.
Funny thing, after numerous attempts I couldn't even submit this review.
Won't come back. - Diego Stevens

The park is paved and very tight. Every inch of ground is utilized for sites. There are only a few pull thrus that are so short most rigs with tows will still have to be disconnected which defeats the purpose of a pull thru site. Many sites are occupied by permanent campers. If your site is near the office you will hear road noise. The positive aspects is the location to the Boeing Facotory and the Old Birds Museum, both well worth the time. You will have commercial jets flying overhead as the jets produced by Boeing are test flown. Grocery stores and shopping nearby. The people in the office are very helful & informative. - petpeople

This price reflects the monthly rate, as we stay here while making our annual visits to our doctors. Their new rate is $550 plus electricity. They also charged us $90 for electricity. Sites are tight when you have slides. It is 50 amp with full hookups and pull-through spots. The majority of people live here full time and there are a few dumpy sites. We are booked to go back as it is convenient to Seattle. - rolling homeless

Sites are very small in the length and width. There was 29 inches between sites, I measured it. Access to sites on narrow roads that required several attempts to get our 45 foot motorhome into the site. TV satellite was blocked by a tree. Our site he had a severe slope such that I needed 6 inches of blocks under one Jack. No picnic table. The site was called a pull through but the front and back hung out into the roads and the car needed to be parked next to the motorhome. Would not recommend. Dog parks were in terrible condition. - HHIDUDE

Extremely tight spots and difficult to back into our space. We had a 40 ft space for our 38 ft RV but the back section was severely sloped so we could not back all the way in and still use our levelers. Toads needed to be parked adjacent to the RV on the narrow pads which made getting in and out of the car difficult. No problems with the 50 amp service, good water pressure, 60 cable channels and good Wi-Fi. Our spot was directly across from the office so it was very noisy all day with RVs parking in front of us to check in and disconnect toads. Staff was friendly but very noisy with a lot of loud yelling and laughing going on during the day. Also, lots of low flying private aircraft flying overhead during the day. Quiet at night. Sloped concrete pads, nicely landscaped. This is the most expensive park we have stayed in this summer, but not the nicest. - Cabodog

All RV parks around Seattle seem to have problems and are expensive for what you get. Maple Grove may be one of the best, that does not mean it deserves a high rating. While good in some ways, it has many issues, which mostly revolve around tight and extremely in-level sites. While we managed with a big rig, this is not a big rig friendly park. We had to leave our front slide in - in order to level and avoid a large tree. Extremely tight for the toad. - PSWeb

The sites in this park are very close together but if you can get by that the park is convenient to public transportation into Seattle, the managers are very nice and helpful. The park tenants were very friendly and the laundry facilities, clubhouse, and restrooms were clean. Good value camping. - hbcamper
Aug 2012 - $12.00
Rate is based on monthly rental (plus electric). Very tight park, but great facilities - good electric, free wifi at the site, small lodge with book exchange. Very friendly staff. Walk to stores. Bus service on street in front of park. Park is behind (new) Mercedes dealership, so is somewhat hard to find. Watch for small trailer type sign along road. We would/will definitely stay here again if we need to be in the Lynnwood area. - earlymun

Access to the campground is through the parking lot of another business, easy to miss the signs and the driveway entrance. Interior roads are paved, but sites are gravel. The sites are extremely tight; I had to crawl under my neighbor's slide to connect my power and water. My site was not level and too short, the manager had to put warning cones in the roadway. No room for my tow rig, so I had to shuffle it around among open spots in neighboring sites. We were parked under the brightest floodlight ever made - I had to tape a black garbage bag over my vent dome to sleep. Most of the residents are permanent, with only about six for transients. I stayed here because of the location near the hospital and ferry, but never again. - Doug Atterbury

What others have said about the park is true. It is big, wooded and the sites are level (for the most part). It's dusty, the Wi-Fi works good in the clubhouse, pool and bathhouse are excellent. For the price, it should have both cable and sewer.
I have 24' MH and had no problem with the A/C. All that said, you pick your own site and report it to the ranger. What isn't said is that, unless you mark the site some way (orange cone, chairs blocking the site, etc.), it is fair game for new people checking in. I lost sites twice. Gentleman at the ranger's station was very helpful in completing my stay. I loved the seclusion that the wide, brushed areas between sites provided. One thing not mentioned, is the distance (10 miles to Redmond) + the mileage to other area activities. Takes a while and there is no Metro transportation facility until you get to Redmond. All in all, I liked it. - eaf14131

Tall Chief is a nice stop off for a few day stay if you're looking for a shady, fairly well spaced jump off to Snoqualmie Falls/Fall City, WA. The power was less than adequate in our dusty, in level site; and even with 30amp, the water heater and the A/C kept popping the breaker. For a busy park in the dead of summer, power can be an issue but for the price of this park and it's hidden $4 per day "campground fee," we felt very much taken for granted. In addition, $55 a night and no sewer is just too much to pay. The laundromat on site was very clean and reasonably priced. We also enjoyed the pool. We camped here in a 36' foot 5th wheel that was completely coated in fine dust within a hour of setting up camp. We enjoyed the tiny town of Fall City and the campground staff was friendly and helpful as could be. Be aware that the resort fees vary during the week vs. the weekend and there are no weekly discounts. We did find Direct TV satellite in site #25 and had decent AT&T Internet. - RVLife4us

Compared to all the other parks we stayed at over our 7 week vacation, I would rate this park sub par. The park has a great wooded setting which is the best thing about Tall Chief. The sites were not well maintained, the bathroom / showers were dirty and rusted.
The pool area was nice and great for kids. I would not recommend this park. It needs a major overhaul. - JohnPD
