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. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.

Would be a nice Thousand Trails except for the VERY poor 30 amp power. Never had over 110 volts even at 2:00 AM in the morning. Usually it was 105-108. Even though A/C was not needed, you could not safely run microwave or coffee pot. I worried about the refrigerator the entire time there. Sites are not very level either. Might as well boondock. Try somewhere else. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.

A clean and well maintained resort with 30 and 50 amp service. We are here in the off season and they have activities like movies and breakfast planned. There are no picnic tables but in the rain we would not be out there. If you stay here you are about 30 miles from Seattle. The people running the resort are helpful. We will stay here again and recommend this to others. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I am a Passport America member. If you are too, make sure you make your reservation online or call it in. They will not accept PA at the entrance for walk-ups. The rate does not reflect the PA discount for Sunday-Thursday nights. The drive in from Monroe has a steep grade about 1 mile from the park. I am guessing it is a 7+ grade for about 1/4 mile. The park is 5 miles East of Monroe on a narrow road (paved and lined). The park has a nice laundry facility, multiple swimming pools, game room, shuffleboard, and mini-golf. The mini-golf is getting worn but still is fun for the kids. Many sites are occupied by "1000 Trails" members. You get to pick your site as "first come-first served" but you can't take an unoccupied member site. There are sites near the river with W & E but no sewer HU's. There is a honey wagon service for $25. Full hook-ups are located in the main campground area. The sites are level but a bit tight. There seems to be a few long-term set ups scattered around. The resort fee of $3 per night that Encore charges makes me upset. It's an extra charge after they take your discount! Overall, it's a decent park with some issues with tenants and aging facilities. It took me 45 minutes to get to Seattle Center on a weekday noon trip. I'm not a fan of Thousand Trails campgrounds, but this one ranks as one of the better ones. It's still not a great campground, just alright. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have not stayed here for four summers. This time we stayed on the river side. No sewers, but way, way nicer spots than on the other side of the street. We saw tubers and fishermen from inside our coach. Plus 50 amps. I think the no sewers part is due to closeness to the river. Friendly staff. No sewer on river side. The gate makes you wait two minutes if you miss the first try and you do not enter the gate code exactly right. The staff person was not exactly welcoming to my criticism. The access road sucks. Very narrow and curvy for 3-4 miles no matter if you come in from Sultan or Monroe. I also like the cost, zero for me. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails membership park now owned by Encore system so public sites available. We are members thus the $0 nightly rate. We stayed here many times from 2008-2010 and were happy, but this time found it was less than adequate. First site we tried was narrow and not level and we could not get DirecTV. We moved to riverside and still could not get DirecTV. Other campers came over and said since the trees grew higher almost no one could get satellite TV, and there is no over-the-air TV. Road traffic and railroad noise much louder than in 2010. Campground store seems to be gone. Public laundry available. We will probably not stay here again as it is 4+ miles down a narrow 2-lane road. Campground is not near anything. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.

The campground is divided by Ben Howard Road into two sections. The River side does not have sewer hook ups, but the sites seem to be more level than the sites across the road. We chose full hook ups, since we were going to be there for a week. The roads are a bumpy combination of dirt and gravel. The sites are unbelievably uneven. There are quite a few long term residents, with assorted accoutrements attesting to their long term status. Some of them were downright scary, in my opinion. Additionally, dogs were not on leash, and children were unattended. I will not stay there again. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails membership park. Open to public as space allows. We are not members. Site was back-in, on river, traffic noise, no wifi, no cable, no satellite access, no over-the-air TV access. Price was very high - $46 - the most we paid anywhere in 9,100 miles this year! This includes Alaska. We will not stay here again. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.

No cost if TTN member. Free WiFi in lodge. Fair Verizon voice, good (4G) Verizon data. No air TV. Two nice pools and hot tub. No store. Food service on weekends. About 50% full hookups (with 50A - no extra charge). Mini golf, playground, a few hiking trails. On Skykomish river. Limited satellite TV in full hook up sites.

Rather funky park. Older sites that had sewer didn't necessarily have a working sewer. We were in the annex overlooking the river, which wasn't too bad. A back in site, as they all were. Water and electric only. Dump site was very difficult and cumbersome to get to so we didn't. Very quiet. Needs a lot of maintenance. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice park located in the woods with the Skykomish River located on some of the sites. It is about 5 miles out of Monroe so it is very quiet. The sites are fairly level and there are lots of things to do such as using the pool, volleyball, shuffleboard, etc. Monroe has many nice restaurants including Tiajuanas for Mexican food. They have a large craft store for stocking up on craft supplies. Antenna TV does not work well and there is no cable TV. We will stay here again as it is gated and the people running the park are friendly and helpful. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We're TT members, so the cost was zero. The park is in a nice area close to the Snohomish river. Facilities are clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. But the sites are really close together, however, and for some reason this park permits several old, unwashed permanent trailers. We got a space close to three of these unsightly trailers, two of which looked like they were ready for the junk yard. One was even sitting on cement blocks with no tires! Aside from that, we enjoyed our stay and also enjoyed to nearby town of Monroe. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.

It rained for six days straight in August when we stayed here. This park is close to my sister and we belong to TT, is how we picked it. When this place was built they laid out a good RV park. It is in a somewhat state of disrepair. But that said our stay was fine. My biggest complaints would be that we could not get our TV or internet Sat to work because of trees. But the other side of it was that we were camping in a forest, so that is not so bad. For Wi-Fi you walk to the clubhouse. The four miles to get here off the main road is narrow and hilly. We have a 42' motor home and made it, but a log truck going the other way is a tight fit. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.

My rate reflects my TT membership. This is one of the nicer TT parks. It has had some improvements over last year. New flags are posted coming up the driveway and there is an attractive eagle nest display at the park entrance. We also noticed that the miniature golf has had some much needed painting and repairs. It is a kid friendly park and my grandchildren looked forward to visiting and playing at the swing sets and the pool. Very few 50 AMP sites and we were fortunate enough to have one. Our circuit breaker went out and someone came to repair it within the hour, which we appreciated very much. On the day we checked it there was a water pressure problem. I wish someone at the gate had mentioned it to us because we spend over an hour trying to figure out why the water was coming out of the spigot outside it was only a dribble in the coach. Best restaurant in town is Sockeye's. They have very reasonable lunch prices. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.

Spacious RV park overall. Many children's activities. There are some things to really like about this park, but some things not so much. We had no luck getting out brand new HD sat dish to find a signal. However, there were some other campers that had smaller non-HD tripod style dishes that seemed to work. Our internet satellite dish came close to getting a good enough signal but the trees are just too tall. No WiFi in camp area that I could find. As normal with Thousand Trails parks the staff here were very friendly. This park looked like it was very nice 15 years ago. The facilities have been let go though. I realize that the economy has been rough the last couple of years, but the deterioration of this park started long before that. But, if you are a TT member and can stay here at a very low price this is not a bad place at all. If this was a pay per stay place I think they would have a hard time staying in business. We camped at Thousand Trails-Thunderbird Resort in a Motorhome.
