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

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

Gravel parking lot. Park will be closed Sep 8 for several years for waste water treatment plant construction. Good water pressure, good electricity, lousy WiFi, had to buy extension for sewer hose, hookups in middle of spot. Not much shade.... think big parking lot but close to bay which also means sea gulls. Noisy. Spots wide enough to park tow vehicle next to trailer. - Jim Lee

This is an excellent park to stay at. On this web site it says it has closed, however the city council voted to keep the park open till July 6th. At that time it will be close for three years to update the sewer facility and the r.v. park. We were able to receive satellite t.v., verizon cell service etc. There is an amazing amount of things to do there. I would recommend Island Cafe if you are going out to eat..Very good. - Mandalayjo

Our annual Memorial Day camping trip, and this time Deception. Make reservations early, as park is popular. We had no hookups which is fine. Surprising this year it looks that the concessions did not have any bidders, and all closed. Canoes as well. Small store outside park, but check in booth has firewood, but no last minute supplies. Beautiful park, with a lot to do. Wash. SP need to seriously look at why they can't provide recycling at all campgrounds. Yes we will come back again. - NXTSTOP

Beautiful place, stayed in the tree loop,low tide, park was in good shape for early season, they are short of $$$, you can see. Hiking, and water views are great. My only major complaint was checking in, was the Ranger had an vest, gun,and all. Was thinking......... Is this a state park........ Is something going on? On a positive note, bring a fishing pole, good shoes, and enjoy. - NXTSTOP

This was our 4th visit to Deception Pass. Stayed in site 193 which is steps from the amphitheater, West Beach, Cranberry Lake & the North beach trail. Site location was fantastic, close to the newer bathhouse, trails to the beach, etc... We keep finding new trails, fishing holes, and beach spots here. Navy planes were out on Thu and Fri before Labor Day but they didn't start flying until 8AM and seemed to be done at a reasonable hour. Love this park. - pokeyt

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

This is a beautiful heavily wooded state park. There are beautiful ocean & sunset views along the bluff trail that starts at the campground. While the views are beautiful very little of beach is accessible due to the high bluffs. Some but not all sites are suitable for big rigs due to a lot of very large trees. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The office was seldom open but staff were seen frequently checking and maintaining the campground. If you have to self check in be sure to check the board at the check in station for available campsites. The showers take tokens that can be purchased from a vending machine at the check in station. All the campsites had a picnic table and fire ring and the campground host kept the sites clean. We enjoyed our time at this park and would stay again. - pawatt

This was a great camping location. It is a State Park with electric and water hookups. My rating reflects the fact that there is not a dump station. The sites are layed out well, not too close together, with good privacy. There are plenty of trees that provide lots of shade. We really enjoyed staying there. I also knocked down the rating for the showers -- you had to use tokens to (rather than quarters), and the tokens were only available down the hill at the Ranger information station (not a huge deal, but a bit of a pain). Our kids loved exploring the park, the beach, and the rest of the island. - bigkillerbeeman

As we are TT members, the cost to us is free. We stayed for a little over 2 weeks. We were able to get one of the sites for which we could get a sat signal but no sewer connection. Park very wooded and not easily navigated, but it was quiet for the most part. The store was convenient as was the lodge area down by the water. Would bicycle down in order to get a strong enough Verizon signal to text and make phone calls. Easy access to the town of LaConner and a short drive to both Anacortes and Mount Vernon. Love the Skagit valley. A pool would be nice but overall a very nice TT park. - Specracer47

Lots of good reviews. We want to add that big rigs are very very limited. We did make it in with our 39' fifth wheel but it took 45 minutes to find roads and a site we could go down. The "ranger" at the shack was helpful but really didn't give us the best areas for our rig. Very few sites with sewer, and many of the sewers are placed uphill from your rig. IF you are a medium-large rig come on in. Big rigs watch out. Very low hanging limbs. - Landyachty

Wonderfully kept park and great location with water views. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Family center really nice and big grassy area to put chairs and enjoy the water views. This is a well kept facility. We were in a cabin with water views and could walk to the beach near the boat ramp. Cabin was plain but very clean and well appointed with hair dryer, all kitchen items, flat screen TV, so had everything you would need for a great week. Had a deck and firepit. Wish we lived closer as we would return frequently but live on the east coast. This park is very accessible to motor homes and all camping units even big rigs. Loved everything about La Conner. - SunshineKids

Small and quiet campground. Has an indoor pool. Sites are all back in on blacktop with lawn between sites. We stay her often. - rolling homeless
Jul 2014 - $1.00
This has gone downhill over the years. 1/2 of the sites are now unusable for all but the very smallest of RVs. They don't cut back on the shrubs/trees and roots have heaved on a lot of the sites so you can't back in. We will Not be coming back again. - PugetSound
Jul 2014 - $1.00
Rate was $0 which reflects ROD price. Nice quiet park near the marina, river, and quaint town of LaConner and other nearby attractions. We enjoyed sightseeing during our week here. The downside were frequently fly-overs by NAS Whidbey Island and the extremely tight RV spaces. Probably won't stay here again. - hr08

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

Heard good things about this RV park so we made our reservation. I'm glad that we did, it's a beautiful place and was the perfect way to make sure that we were able to catch the morning ferry to Vancouver Island. I agree with others who said it reminds them of a state park instead of a commercial facility. Great location for Deception Pass, Whidbey Island, and the ferry to Victoria. Large, level space between beautiful old trees. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Really, the only negative thing was the great number of low flying Navy jets overhead, but then again, the cost of freedom... My only caution would be to those who would annoyed or bothered by the constant air traffic. Military jets are usually VERY loud, and when they're coming in 2 minutes apart (well into the night/early morning) it can make for a very restless night. - Cathy n Jon 2MV

We found this park to be wonderful for visiting the area. Spaces up top were a little close, some were in full sun but if you can get on D or E row they are shady, quite spacious, some are deluxe and have a covered patio. Sites are pretty level. Best dog walk I've ever seen, grassy with trees, huge. Also have large playground area, horshoes, etc. We would definitely stay here again. - sam and hope

Enjoyed our week-long stay here. It's a large park. The sites vary from shaded (A-C loops) to out in the open. Our pull-through site had a steep front, but level back. Owners very helpful in addressing issues. Very convenient to the Anacortes ferry. Would stay again. - rayp

After reading some of the comments in previous years, namely the extremely negative review done in June 2014 we were somewhat sceptical about booking at Swinomish. Access to the casino rv park was well marked and easy to navigate with wide access lanes. When we arrived I asked the front desk staff what the power voltage was and they were told by phone with maintenance that it was 30 amp and 120 volts. This was confirmed when I plugged in my surge guard power protector and all green lights showed. We were told to go to our site, which was shown on the park rv map and settle in then come back and register, which was reassuring as often you have paid only to find out the site looks better on the web page than in reality. Water, pressure showed just under 40 psi so there was no concern about incurring damage to our rv's plumbing system. Power, cable, water, and sewer were all available at the rear of our unit, which is consistent with any other park layout. We found the park very well maintained, garbage was picked up twice daily and the sprinklers came on before dawn to water the grass. Our site had two picnic tables that we were able to position where we wanted without any difficulty. The walkway from the rv park to the casino was well light with pedestal post lights and a paved walkway. Yes, the park is situated next to train tracks and the train using those tracks moved slowly not creating much noise. We heard the train whistle each day once in the late afternoon and never during the evening or night. We stayed for three nights and would stay again if in the area. - Semiretired

You have to use credit card to reserve/pay for RV site and each time I have done this here my card has been compromised. CC company said it happens a lot when used at casinos. The A/C for hotel is right behind some sites and extremely noisey. - Travelling vagabonds

We asked for a larger space with cabana and were told none were available for the time we were staying - there were at least 7 open during our entire stay. Our grandchildren visited us for a few hours, so we had to park our truck in spaces by the office, only to get a nasty note that it was for only 1 hour parking. TV/cable reception and selection are awful. - IdahoRVr

When coming onto the island, take Spur 20 and the Fidelgo Bay road. Road is narrow, and there is a section that is not very good. Main internal road is paved, but roads leading to sites and the sites themselves are gravel but pretty level. There was some dust. This is a two part resort. The original part is adjacent to the water (there is a refinery across the bay) and has a gravel beach. The clubhouse is in this area. The second area is closer to the main entrance. Best sites, if you cannot get on the water, are the east facing pull in sites in the older part since you are looking at a green belt. The green belt contains the Thompson bike and walking path that runs about 5 miles total and its about 2.5 miles into town. Staff was great; very helpful with directions and suggestions. This park is about 10 minutes from downtown Anacordes. No off leash dog park, but there is a large grassy area to walk them, and you can walk them along the Thompson trail (but watch for the herds of rabbits and feral cats if you dogs will chase them). Utilities were good. Wifi was strong and cable was clear. We would stay here again. - okdiver

This was our 4th time here. We have always had waterfront spots. They are the best, We probably would not come if we were not waterfront. Sunny and open, gravel surface with a picnic table.
The off waterfront spots are OK if you are near the Bay. The spots up in the "Ghetto" are not all that great. We made our reservation over one year in advance. We found out when we left the waterfront is completely booked for August 2017. - RPFawcett
