We were there 3 nights and had the best time. The park is very spacious and clean. Best picnic table we have had all summer. - Judy2shoes

A very nice, albeit, somewhat cramped campground. In the flight path of Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island. F-18s make an awful lot of noise. Drive south on Washington route 20 from Anacortes, WA, over the Deception Pass (2 bridges). Huge sign on left at traffic light, easy to find. Owned and run by sisters, very friendly and helpful. Credit cards accepted. CG roads are asphalt in good condition, sufficiently wide with gentle turns. Most sites are angled back-in on narrow asphalt, most long enough for big rigs. No overhead or turning obstacles. FHU-20/30/50 with all utilities at or near the rear. Sewer connection at ground level. Roof mounted satellite antennas have no problems with reception. Earth is packed clay so no grass or landscaping between sites. No patio. Nice picnic tables and fire rings. Firewood sales at $5 for a nice sized bundle. Strong water pressure and taste. No office store. Restrooms/showers not inspected. Propane available at $3/gallon. Laundry. Okay playground. Cable TV. Free Wi-Fi with good connections and "ok" bandwidth. This CG is in a Verizon deadzone - zero bars. No traffic noise (just the airplanes). Bug Report: tree wasps (look like bees) but no issues. No recycle bins. - StephenK

This seemed like an old campground because the sites are very tight and the roads are difficult to navigate for bigger campers. Everyone had to park there cars at the end of the sites and some were partially in the roads. The pad for the camper was just wide enough for the wheels to remain on it. The campground is built on a hill so the back end of the camper was pretty high off the ground. Sites were not huge but we did have enough room to have a little privacy. The wifi worked okay but the cable had limited channels.
Their website does tell you about the jets overhead. They are loud. We must have been lucky because they were flying when we arrived but did not fly the rest of the weekend. Others said the night before they were flying until 11:30 at night.
We probably would not stay again because of the jet path. - John Borajkiewicz

SAD NEWS....THIS PARK WILL CLOSE, PERMANENTLY, ON OCT 15, 2017. The city is expanding the harbor area and eliminating the RV park. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

Stayed here in the past before construction which cut the park in half. It is a good city park, well placed, pleasant except for homeless people and kids sometimes act out. This location, Windjammer park is where lots of activities by the city occur. You can get car shows, Thursday evening concerts by the town band playing big band favorites. Location is great, there is local bus service except on Sunday, that is free and you can go all over the island if you are patient and don't mind the bus. Good restaurants, grocery stores, ect. Nice small town. For us it is really not a camping experience, but a nice place to set up and enjoy all the hookups and civilization after weeks on the road boon-docking on the road up and back from Alaska. - smokeyd

Staysail campground is co-located in Windjammer City Park, right on the harbor. It is a first come/first served park (they do not take reservations). If you are fortunate to be on the end, closest to the beach, the views are magnificent -- on clear days you can see both Mt. Baker and Mt Rainier. The park has free WiFi and recycles everything except glass (which can be recycled at the Safeway). You can walk to Safeway, Walmart and several good restaurants and coffee shops. There is a car wash, that accommodates large RVs, on the next block and the 'historic downtown' is only two blocks away.
Windjammer City Park has lots of lush grass, apple trees, public restrooms, a nice pavilion and picnic areas; there's a paved walking path along the shore line and its very popular with families. There are frequently free events scheduled in the park.
The general parking area (for the City Park) is adjacent to the RV park so traffic can be heavy. There are also a lot of folks who don't seem to understand the concept of picking up after your dog. Unfortunately, Oak Harbor has a large homeless population and they congregate in Windjammer Park. While we were there, the police visited almost daily in response to calls from the public. I'm sorry to say, on two different days, the police resorted to pulling their weapons; one of those was at the rig parked next to ours. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

July 20,21 Deception Pass State Park, Washington, $40, Cranberry Lake Campground, site 42, water & electric or no hookups, dump station, 250 sites, reservations year round This state park is located on Whidbey Island and one can take a ferry from Port Townsend and the mainland or drive in from the north on route 20. There are three campgrounds located in this state park; Cranberry Lake - which is the biggest one located on the Puget Sound and Cranberry Lake. Quarry Pond located across the road with 60 sites all with water and electric and Bowman Bay with 20 sites but no hookups but right on the Bay (small RV's only). The main campground roads are narrow and not recommended for larger units in all three campgrounds. In the park there are trails, fishing, boating, swimming and beaches on the Puget Sound. Most of the sites are in evergreens with no views except for the Bowman Bay area. Driving in from the north the Bowman Bay Campground is before the Deception Pass Bridge and the other two campgrounds are right after the bridge. The bridge is high up and narrow with beautiful views. We enjoyed our stay here, but be warned a Naval Air Station is right near the park and it is a training area for pilots. The two days we were there the jets and planes were loud and went right over our site. I just pretended that is was a Top Gun like Tom Cruise flying around above us and that made it easier to take. I wish this State Park would enforce their two vehicles per site limit (including camping unit) and the number of people in a site. We had a number of sites around us that had four vehicles parked on site with a lot of people camping. - gsnakehill

Our Guidebook claimed that the NAF station jets 'occasionally' flew over the CG making a deafening roar, but while we were there the noise was almost Constant! - Momads

Very nice park! We stayed there in 30' travel trailer, no hookup on our site (Lower Loop, site #94). Some sites are not very private, but some are excellent. Ours #94 was VERY, very good! Some people complain about noise from planes - they flew only in the late morning, and didn't bother after this. Pad from trailer is fairly level, I didn't even have to use levelers, it was right on spot. - andy-g

Update to my review from 2010. Still great views across the Strait of Juan de Fuca, although this years regional wildfires limited the blue skies and made for fiery red sunsets. The park has removed some of the trees, making it easier to maneuver our 35ft Class A through the main loop. The staff and volunteers at the park keep it spotless, and as with most parks, they have upgraded to 50 amp electrical. They still do not have sewer, nor a dump station. The nearest dump site is at Deception Pass State Park, but every time we camp we just dump our tanks at Camping World in Burlington or one of the State dump stations along I-5 near Marysville, WA. Broadcast TV was still marginal, but adequate over my old 'batwing' antenna, but I'd be curious to see what campers with one of the new 'JACK' antennas finds. I tried putting my Dish Tailgater in several spots around our site, and even on top of my rig, to get some level of coverage - but was not able to pick up a single Echostar bird, so you'll have to rely on OTA HD broadcasts. Cell service with 4G LTE on Sprint was non-existent, and my phone kept trying to roam internationally to the Victoria BC towers 2o miles away. (I could pick up 3G from the Port Townsend towers, and Sprint support reps said they are planning upgrades to Whidbey Island in 2018 to cover these gaps.) AT&T had one bar of 4GLTE, and I was able to get online streaming Netflix and play some online video games. As my wife is fond of saying, we camp to disconnect from the world, and Fort Ebey State Park certainly is the place to do that. - NavyStore

Fort Ebey, on Whidbey Island, is yet another WWII military installation that was turned into a Washington State park. It is on a bluff high above Puget Sound, and has great views of Puget Sound, loads of hiking trails and WWII bunkers for the kids to crawl around on. The campground is quite nice. We came here on a weekend in August once. It was packed and noisy, as would be expected on a summer weekend anywhere near Seattle. On a weekday in early May, however, we have the place pretty much to ourselves. The campground is wooded. Trees and bushes between nearly every site. A combination of back in and pull through sites. There are a handful of sites that are appropriate for bigger rigs, but the trees make driving and parking any big rig a challenge. In general, the pull through sites on the outside of the loop have more space and better views. The sites inside the loop are...cozy. Washington state park campsite prices reflect the site location. We paid $35 for a "premium" site with hookups. "Economy" sites without hookups are $20. About ten sites have 30A power and water. These are all the largest sites furthest from the bluff. The sites are more or less level. Restrooms are not fancy, but are clean. The biggest downside to this place is the lack of dump station. There's no dump station anywhere nearby. There's one at Deception Pass, half an hour north, that is available for free with your camping slip, and a county park 5 miles to the south that is $5. We were able to get some Seattle TV channels, but reception was marginal. The trees would make satellite reception unlikely. With our WeBoost, we had good AT&T reception, and marginal Verizon. Without the WeBoost, AT&T was marginal, and the Verizon phone could have been left at home. - AnnP

Previous reviewers pretty well said it all, it hasn't changed. Some sites have water & electric, ours didn't, not a problem for a 3 night stay as we have a genny and genny hours are fair at 8:00AM-10:00PM. I Feel price (includes res. and out of state use fee) pushing the limit for a dry site. I would have rated higher if the price was better and a dump station was onsite. - Procarver

Big Rigs Stay away! we are a 40 DP, 13' tall Only after we arrived and paid balance due, ~$171, were we told no spot had been reserved. "Just drive around and come back and tell us where you are". We did and found there was nothing that we could fit in available. Four phone calls to the "manager" and never a return call. Using my wife's name we got a return call. (We tricked her.) After the paved entrance, roads are gravel/dirt/dusty. Very brushy and short length spots. - Dave C123

La Conner RV Park is huge, sprawling, and very popular. I came in on 4th of July weekend, and it was full to the brim. I understand its popularity: It has a lovely, well-wooded situation overlooking Rosario Strait. it has all the amenities that today's family campers expect, except a swimming pool. And it provides easy access to attractions for a day's excursion: La Conner, Deception Pass, the Skagit County Tulip Festival every spring, whale watching and other activities out of Anacortes. From my perspective, however, newly launched as I am into a life of living in and towing a fairly large (38') trailer, some aspects of the park disturbed me: 1. The park does not provide for mail service. They tell you to send to La Conner general delivery. 2. It's hard to get details about local facilities. The park is understaffed, and does not always return phone calls. 3. Although the park can accommodate big rigs like mine, it is not well suited to them: a. They do not closely manage who parks where. It's first-come-first-served. As a result many of the sites suitable for big rigs are filled with small rigs taking advantage of larger spaces. Of course the policy allowed me to move to a better site, but that's annoying. b. Another consequence of the first-come-first-served policy is that many big-rigs are tucked into sites a little too small for them, and whatever towed or towing vehicle they use for local driving sticks out into already narrow lanes, making navigation of big rigs even more difficult difficult. Only about a third of the sites have sewers, and many of those are taken up by permanent residents. That, together with the first-come-first-served policy, means that finding a site with full hookup on a popular weekend is unlikely, even if you reserve in advance. Reservations don't guarantee full hookups. - Jim Fulton

Our motorhome is 38' and 13'2" high. The flora on some roads needs trimming as negotiating around and under was a challenge, although I have experience with large vehicles in tight quarters.. The site required trimming to extend slides. I highly recommend disconnecting and seeking a site in a towed vehicle. Some sites have gravel. The spa/hot tub which we wanted to use was closed, and has apparently been closed for 2 years. This is basic camping,and the area has a lot to offer. We may visit again, but large vehicle owners need to be aware. - Bud H

This is now the La Conner Marina RV Resort, owned by the Port of Skagit County. Did not stay at park. Simply updating information and adding pictures. When entering La Conner turn right on North Third Street by large Port of Skagit County sign. (RV park is not on the sign.) Pool building was removed a few years ago. Laundry/restrooms/showers across the street. Restrooms and showers were clean. Layout of parking has not changed. - ForestWalker

You will see black mold everywhere. There is no fence or security, and riff raff in the rental units slamming doors all night . The public is allowed to come into the park and use the pool and hot tubs. The hot tubs are old and chipped fiberglass units and tonight they were too hot, and sometimes there is too much chlorine; it's a hit or miss on temperatures. The pool is 85-90. There are people in tents that must live here months at a time all sorts of RVs are allowed. There is a quiet hour. - Danvango

Park doesn't do reservations after 9/15 until sometime in the spring. New clean restroom and shower building. Watched the ferries arrive and depart. Went up to the old fort and found a TV show being filmed (season finale for Z Nation). Lots of deer and rabbits. Saw a surfaced submarine being escorted out of the Sound. I recommend ferry reservations. We didn't have one and had to wait for the next ferry. - Mary E

The campground area is basically a big, flat spit with a paved main road and gravel sites. None of the pull-through sites have hookups, but the views are outstanding. Generators are allowed during certain hours. The hook-up sites are in a long oblong and are all back-in. There is reasonable space between sites, but there is nothing but grass and gravel between sites, so no privacy. The restroom was spotless. Showers are $.50 (two quarters) for 3 minutes and the lights are on a sensor, so you may be surprised by the lights going out after you start your shower. When the check-in hut is staffed, or the host is available, tokens can be purchased for the showers.
The ferries do not blow their horns to announce arrival and departure, so are fairly quiet, sounding similar to a train when coming and going. There is no noise associated with loading and unloading and it is actually nice to see the boats coming and going.
The beach is outstanding, and the bluff above the campground has an amazing array of WWII structures put in place to protect the coast. You can spend a day wandering among these structures and imagining what life must have been like for the many soldiers stationed here.
We spent New Year's Eve here and it was blissfully quiet. - rfarkle

This is a very popular state park that is hard to get into without reservations in the summer. In the shoulder season and during the winter there are no reservations and it's first come, first served. On nice weekends, it can be hard to get into even during the off-season. We came in on a Thursday afternoon and all the hook-up sites (water and electric only) were already taken, as were the best view sites. Still, we were able to get a site with a nice view of the water and the ferry landing. In my opinion the non-hook-up sites are the best because they have the best views and are the most spacious. Washington State parks now have a tiered fee system at their parks (at least some of them anyway). This means that sites are various prices depending on whether they are deemed to be Premium, View or Economy sites. The best thing about this park is the easy access to the ferry which goes over to the charming Victorian town of Port Townsend. It's an easy walk to the ferry from the campground and the walk-on fares are very reasonable. There is no dump station at Fort Casey, but there are dump stations at Fort Ebey and Deception Pass State Parks and they are free if you've been camping at Fort Casey. - BruceandKathyWA

We stayed at Pioneer Trails for 16 nights at site E-1. This site is a head in and in the trees. Sewer connection had a little high rise at the end. If satellite is important we would suggest something in the A row. Our satellite got most of the channels and local TV by antenna brought in a few local stations. The park did not have cable. WiFi was there but a little iffy at out site. The staff was great. Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We would recommend it highly. If you plan to stay for any length of time suggest making reservations in January. - bdixon2297526

Good large park with plenty of room to roam. Each site is very different so it depends on which site you get. The front of the park is very wooded with lovely big trees and landscaping. The back, newer part of the park is a bit more open and just big gravel lots. All the utilities are excellent and easy to deal with. We were in B15 and right next to the wifi which worked well all the time for us. Verizon cell was good. Cable worked well and easy to deal with. There is plenty for the kids and there are plenty of kids. You can always ask to be on one of the sides or in the back away from kids but it is a big family get away type park. Good dog park. Can be dusty if you are in the middle. Good location right at the edge of town. Easy drive into town or over to Whidbey. Right off 20. July and August very full so reserve early and u can always cancel. - FrancisandRenee

We have stayed at Pioneer Trails for the past two years and absolutely love this resort. The place is beautiful, peaceful, the sites are spacious and the Staff has treated us with the utmost courtesy. Normally that's all it takes to get a 5-star rating from me. The one draw back; the road dust is ridiculous. The managers / owners have allowed the gravel roads to be ground into dust and have chosen not to maintain them. They have a "5 mph, strictly enforced, speed limit" sign at the entrance, but it is not enforced and a very small percentage of campers adhere to it. Let the dust clouds roll. Bottom line: they need to spend some money, seal the dust and then re-gravel the roads. If you don't mind a lot of dust, then this is a great place to camp. As for me, I will not return until the dust issue is resolved. - Les Gipson

The CG is attached to the Casino, the toilets are located in the casino 24 hours a day. Each site has full hookups and CTV, WiFi is available as well. A long sewer line is needed to use the sewer hook up at the site. - summerdude

Due to early departure from Canada due to the wildfires, we had to stay 2 days at the casino. Everything else booked. Hard to pay $35 when the casino takes so much more. Isolated as this is, not likely you won't lose some here. Sites are great, full HU, well maintained. - Nevada Nick

A basic park but with full hookups of which only a few pull-throughs are 50 amp. Reservations are required. Don't park until you check in. The RV park and check-in is behind casino and hard to see. There is a gravel/dirt overflow lot in back as well. No hookups there but dump station nearby. Clean park with good grass for pets. - blumarlin

Big park with two sections. One section is nicer and on the water more with better views and just a nicer feel. We were in the other section that was tighter and closer to highway 20 so more noise. I would try and get the bay section. Either way, being right there at the bay was nice. The beach area is great for sup boarding and saw seals toward the marina. Utilities good and verizon signal was excellent so no worries with the useless wifi (like almost all places we stay). We would stay again if in the area. Very busy so need to book early and cannot use the outside spaces if you are not a Class A or C. A little tight getting in and out of spaces and parking but doable and worth it for the area. - FrancisandRenee

This is our second time here in a 42 foot class A motorcoach towing a small car. This park is clean, orderly, well-cared for. You are right on the water of Fidalgo Bay - you can see tankers, fishing boats and pleasure craft. It is located on a paved bike trail, 2.1 miles into Anacortes - nice seaside town with interesting shops and restaurants and great farmers market. Down side is the size of the sites. Ours was 62 feet - adequate length for a pull-through - but so close side to side that we were within a couple of inches of taking out our neighbor's awning to maneuver into the site. We had to struggle with our position on the site so we could deploy our slides and not hit those same awnings. When we originally drove to our assigned site, it was still occupied. Park staff handled this well and were able to accommodate us in another site. It seems in really well-run parks, staff come around and check on site availability at check-out time to avoid this kind of trouble. - Traveling Gnomes

We stayed here and went to the Skagit Tulip Festival. It is about 15 miles from the park. The park has a good number of seasonal renters. Has a number of cabins. The RV sites are extemely small. Parking is scarce and movement within the park is tight and cramped. Roads are dirt. Sites dirt. There is a nice clubhouse on site that is never used. Nice barbeque facilities that are never used.
The ocean front sites are all pull ins and require a class A to be usable. RIG BIAS!!!
There is a great walking and biking path out over the bay that is fun. Wifi worked ok. Verizon worked okay. Satellite was easy to get going.
Supplies easy to get in Anacortes about 5 minutes away. - BrianStacifulltimers
