We needed a place to stay outside of Seattle on our way home. Being that it was the Sunday after the 4th we didn't figure we'd find anything. But low and behold they had a early departure. We arrived late, they left all the information needed on the office door. It's not cheap but I wanted full hook up's since we were low on water. Getting into the site was a bit of a challenge. Some of the sites are located on the side of a hill, trying to back into this site proved to be a challenge at 1AM. I almost gave up, but eventually made it.
I found they only offer 20amp or 50amp plug-ins, I've never bothered to carry a 50-30amp dog-bone. So we stuck with the 20amp, happy we didn't need A/C. Water pressure here was weak at best.
The site itself was nothing special, room for a couple chairs, no fire pit and you're looking right into the next site. It was all asphalt and clean though. The area is heavily treed and even with the Freeway close by it was quiet. I'd gather many that stay here are with them for extended periods, the larger sites look to be occupied by full timers. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Motorhome.
This park requires cash or check no credit cards. It is a compact park with not so level pull throughs and not very dog friendly. There are very few pull thrus and not very level, we had to use blocks for our motorhome. The well water pressure was poor. There was an area designated as a pet walk where the path was chipped wood through the forest of trees and signs everywhere saying do not walk your pet on the lawns. Fortunately we found a nature trail nearby for decent walks with our dog. The park was well maintained and the coy pond lovely. It was a good location to explore the Seattle and Issaquah areas. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
The Rails to Trails Preston Snoqualmie trail was wonderfully shaded and paved and an excellent place to walk your dog. Beware of bears though. Snoqualmie Falls is worth a visit!
Very pretty campground, right off I-90, but quiet. Perfect place to be if you want to visit Seattle and even the Woodinville wineries. However, if you want TV, don't stay. DirectTV, TV antennae didn't work (and we have a portable unit). You can "rent" a Comcast box, but we were only there for 2 nights, on a weekend, so not feasible. We just watched movies for 2 nights. There are a couple of sites that are appropriate for satellite TV, but apparently they rent to long-term folks. Probably would not stay here again if more than one night. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
I stayed her for an extended period last year, and then again this year. As far as location and natural beauty, this place can't be beat. Right off I-90 with easy access into Issaquah or Seattle. Lots of thick trees and some shady spots make this a very relaxing spot. The management is a bit hard to deal with and like many RV parks, they hire people who aren't used to being in positions of power and it often goes to there head. That said, they probably get a lot of abuse too. There is no more wireless Internet for the casual traveler. But, the long term camper can have Comcast install a modem for phone/Internet/Cable and get a very fast connection. The cable TV they provide is minimal. They don't let you reserve a particular site, and hence a repeat stay is risky. I had a great space last year, and among the worst this year. As a result I wont risk a third year Other places manage to figure out a way and they should too. Both stays they had messed up my reservation so be sure to confirm before you arrive, maybe confirm a few times! If you do arrive early or have a problem, don't let them tell you that you can't unhook in the cul-de-sac. They will even say they own it. In fact it is a public road and as long as you are on the side, you can safely unhook. According to the King County Sheriff you could even leave it there for up to 72 hours if needed. I would recommend notifying the RV park and the sheriff if you need to do this, as a courtesy. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park is quiet and secluded; although, it is literally off exit 22 of Hwy 90. It's close to all major cities. The bathrooms, showers, laundry, and clubhouse were all spotless and look newly updated. It was a peaceful, private place. Laundry costs $1.25 a washer and 25 cents per 15 minutes in the dryer. There were 5 washers and 6 dryers. Pets are welcome at no extra charge. My site was large enough for my RV plus 2 cars. All the sites are FHU on blacktop with green space in between. It is very well kept and landscaped. Well lighted at night. Propane is delivered once a week to residents that request the service. Rates during my stay were $40 a night, $250 a week and $670 a month. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is the second nicest park in the Seattle area, which isn't saying much, but if you like quiet, forest parks this one will appeal to you. No Wi-Fi is available. Water pressure is low, but acceptable and the water is good. Many folks here are long term campers, but the park is very strict and you really won't notice anything more than some RVs have more than one vehicle parked. Most spaces are good sized and fairly level...all are paved. The park is strict about cleaning up after dogs and it shows. Park did have some trouble with theft while we were here, but it didn't affect us. Park is very close to a beautiful Casino with a great buffet. A filling station is nearby that can accommodate a 40ft RV with a toad, and has diesel. Cable service is available, but as most parks in Seattle have Comcast, the cable REQUIRES a box to be installed on each TV which is dreadful in an RV...we used our satellite dome, but VERY few spaces in the park will allow this as the trees are tall and the mountain is on the south side of the park. Spaces B1, B2, and 43 are good for satellite. A few others will work with a portable dish. We really enjoyed staying here and would come back. Book long in advance in season, because the place is booked solid early. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park with paved roads and sites. The office people were super pleasant & helpful when we had a problem with our RV and we had to stay day-to-day waiting on a part. They gave us great advice about local stores & attractions. The hookups were good; although, the water pressure was pretty low & each site has a picnic table. The dog walk area is just outside the entrance. The restrooms/showers were spotless. There is a nice "trade" library and BBQ grills can be used at the clubhouse. The laundry was spotless & reasonable. The grounds are beautiful & well-kept with lots of attention to detail. There are a few signs around, reminding people to use common sense, but nothing out of the ordinary. They don't want dogs walked inside the park, and dog owners who do not responsibly clean up still walk their dogs in the park. We liked the dog-walk rule & appreciated the beautiful environment in this very convenient location. We did see big rigs get in & out, they just had to go slow. Remember it is only cash or check, no credit cards. We loved it here and would return! We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
They do NOT take credit cards, cash or check only. The pull-thru sites are up on top, steep, curvy, narrow road leading to them. They are long, but narrow, fairly level. Some shade. They have "cable" but you have to rent a box, which must be connected directly to TV, a big problem on our MoHo. Overall, an OK park for visiting Seattle. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Motorhome.
We liked this park. It was convenient to the area we were visiting. It was pretty quiet, with just a bit of freeway noise. The facilities were clean, and well kept up. The site was a little tricky for us to back into, in that it was on a hill, and we didn't want to fall over the cliff. (We didn't!) The park itself is very pretty, lots of trees and flowers. We would stay here again. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Fine for one night, but these people are wrapped very tightly and have notes, signs and postings EVERY where saying 'don't do this or .... They are not pet friendly - the pet area is OUTSIDE the park. Just try and make your dog wait for 10 minutes while you get there! Clean, safe and neat - good for one night. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a week. We had a pull-through site which was a bit small but most of the other sites are smaller. They are all paved and fairly level. We had to put a couple of 4x4 blocks under our front jacks to level our motorhome. The water pressure was very low and we had to use our pump to take a shower. They allow pets in the park but you have to take them outside the park to do their business. We don't have any pets so we liked this rule. There is no Wi-Fi at this park but our Verizon worked well. You have to leave a deposit for the cable box but you will get it back when you return it, and there are only a few channels available. The park is easy to get into from the interstate and we didn't think the highway noise was bad. The hosts are friendly and the park is clean. We would stay here again.

I don't know why "Yes" was checked on Wi-Fi, the park does NOT have Wi-Fi. If your computer detects Wi-Fi, the signals are coming from some Preston businesses that are very close by. The sites in the back-in spaces are pretty close together. The pull-throughs on the upper deck have a little bit more spacing, but not much. Try to get a spot on the back upper part, not as much road noise there. Laundry prices are very reasonable, $1.25 to wash and 25 cents for 15 minutes to dry, but even at 3 or 4 quarters it's still reasonable! This park recently became a hostage to a certain cable company that won't allow the cable signal without a converter box. Who wants to drive all day in the RV only to find out that when you connect to the cable, you have to be a techno-geek to do so? Not the park's fault. The park charges a $35 refundable deposit (as long as you return the cable box and all attachments) to connect to the cable. If you use your antenna, you will only get a couple of channels. Verizon 4G MiFi worked very well here. Good park if you are visiting people in the outlying Seattle communities such as Bellevue, Redmond, etc. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park was not bad. The restrooms were clean although the showers were somewhat small. Management was very helpful the one time we spoke to them on check-in. We never saw them again including at the time we left (around five o'clock on a Monday. We were there for 48 hours but had to pay for three days since we left after 11:00 am. We were in the area for business and could not manage to leave any sooner. The location was convenient to downtown Seattle and even with rush hour traffic it was only about 40-45 minutes to the heart of the city. There are very few pull-through spots so we had to settle for a back in. The park had mostly long term residents when we were there, most of whom seemed friendly. Forget getting DirecTV from your dome. We tried two different spots and repositioning several times in attempts to get a signal for the NFL Sunday Ticket to no avail. Although the park is only half a mile from I-90 we heard no traffic noise at all. Neither of the two spots we tried were very level but our leveling jacks were able to handle the uneven terrain fine. We might stay at the location again, but probably not during football season. About the only noise we had was the rain on the roof and the neighbors constantly slamming motor home door. That shouldn't be an issue as long as the same folks aren't there when you stay. Overall this is definitely not the best, nor is it the worst park we have visited. Worth a solid 7 and possibly an 8 had management been more available and flexible on their check-out policy. Don't forget to bring plenty of cash because they do not take credit or debit cards.

$31/night-weekly rate - Site 21 had a nice little tree and grass area for privacy. Roads and sites are paved with trees, some with tables. None with fire rings. Most sites were level. The water pressure varies from 35 to 20 psi and causes problems for doing wash. Bathhouse and laundry were clean. Wi-Fi and cable worked good. There was a little road noise from I-90. Easy access to Seattle. We would stay here again. We camped at Blue Sky RV Park in a Motorhome.
