The selection of parks in this area is poor and this park is the best in Sequim. It is a basic, gravel parking lot with a somewhat view of the marina. The name of the park has changed and the sign for the park is hard to read, but it is the park right across the street from the marina. The showers are clean and the laundry is older. We used the laundromat in town which was excellent. The manager is very friendly and helpful. This area is beautiful and there is lots to do. WiFi was ok and cable was excellent. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Olympic Animal Farm is a must see, buy extra bread.
Super WalMart, Costco, Home Depot all in town.

If you are a fisherman, have a truck camper & pickup truck or small trailer, don't need to level your rig, this is the park for you. The best thing about this park for us was the Camp Host that worked hard to rearrange thing so we move to a site where could level our Class A motorhome. Not a good park for big rigs. All gravel sites and streets within the park therefore very dusty with a lot of traffic on the holiday weekend causing dust. A small strip of mostly dead grass between sites. We would not stay there again. Near marina and boat ramp but not affiliated with marina. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Near downtown (what there is of it) Sequim. Other RV parks nearby that drove through would have been a better choice for a Class A.

Rate cited is based on a one month stay. Roads and sites are gravel with a picnic table. There are a few tent sites, dry camp sites and cabins also. Sites are pretty close together. We requested a site on the back row and enjoyed a nice private, grassy sitting area (site 42). The back row backs up to a hillside covered with trees. The middle rows are not as pleasant, just dead grass and gravel. The front row sites are the widest and most have a nice water view, but you have to put up with more traffic on the front row. Park Wi-Fi is variable fast/slow. We had a good 4G Verizon signal with our booster. The park is very quiet at night and fills up with lots of families on summer weekends. This was a great place to spend a month and we will return. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice little park - however it is older and in need of maintenance. Gravel sites, close together and not very level. Definitely not a resort. The folks in the office are very nice, however we were surprised to be charged extra for our 2 little dogs. No mention of the extra charge when we made our reservation and specifically asked if small dogs are allowed. This park is across the street from a nice park at the marina.

The park is dated and unkempt right across the road from a beautiful bay. Gravel sites are weedy and very unleveled. The view from our site was of two older full time residents trailers with weeds knee high to their rigs. Little is done to enforce basic rules. One neighbor attached their rig to the sewer with a garden hose for a drain. Needless to say, we were very offended by the odor. We reported it to the office and got a blank stare. After saying that if you can't do anything, then possibly the county would, they did speak to the camper to correct it. 30 amp service, cable, water and sewer all worked fine. If you are looking for basic services for an overnight stay, this campground is OK, but it is not a destination resort in any way.

Great location but this park is OLD and it shows. Sites are not prepared for arrival of campers. Had to remove vegetation around the water faucet before use. Bathrooms are clean but are obviously in need of maintenance; paint peeling from walls. Shower curtains could be wider to avoid splashing on clothing. Lack of signage for shower electrical switch causes confusion. There are only two showers, two wash basins and two toilets for 43 sites. WiFi was sporadic; manger stated that servers had recently been replaced resulting in unreliable service. Big rig maneuverability is severely limited. No playground for children; only horseshoe pits and badminton courts. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Full hook-up site; gravel spots, and not very level. The power amperage fluctuated wildly throughout the visit, and the water pressure was very iffy. Very tight getting the trailer in and out. The cable only delivered about 9 channels, no broadcast networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox). Many long term residents of the park, and some of them were rather sketchy to our eyes - appeared to be many months since some of the trailers had been moved and not kept in good repair. Some characters searching through the trash dumpsters looking for salvage completed the picture. The only interaction we had with the staff was the initial check-in - everything was all arranged and done in 10 minutes. We saw nothing of the staff for the remainder of the visit. This was our first trip in a new trailer, so we were in "troubleshooting" mode. While we didn't have any issues, this would have been a good location to have trouble - there are several retail stores just minutes away in Sequim that are fully stocked with RV supplies, plumbing and electrical parts, etc. We would not stay here again. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

Lovely campground with excellent views of Sequim Bay across the road and 5 minute walk to grassy walk way by bay with picnic tables and benches. Marina and Dockside Grill (good local seafood with high prices) 5 minutes away as well. Sites are wide and clean. A bonus is a gravel driveway adjacent to concrete pad to park car/truck alongside. Some wildflowers, lavender but no trees. The views make this location so enjoyable, especially with all the birds on this Olympic birding trail. Plenty of places to walk dog.

Get a spot on the front row and you face one of the most picturesque bays ever seen. The staff is courteous, the grounds are decent (gravel and concrete) and the town of Sequim is within 5 miles. Loved it here. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

This definitely does not meet my expectation or definition of a resort RV park. It has zero resort amenities. It is owned by the heirs of John Wayne who are absentee landlords and rests on the 1950 laurels of The Duke. The campground offers little more than gravel sites to park an RV and even then, many sites are terraced on a side hill. Even the campfire area provided only a place to build a fire. We had to bring our own chairs. The other people sitting around the fire dominated the evening with their private conversation. Unfortunately, it is the only RV park in the immediate area. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Motorhome.

This park is under new management (as far is I was told). Very friendly when making the reservation and very friendly when meeting in person the next day (we arrived late). Site was easy to get in and out, no problems leveling the rig. All hookups well located and in good shape. I don't quite understand the comments about the 30 amp service. It's 30 amp only, yes, but stable and in good shape. Wi-Fi was good. The location right across the bay is nice. Very quiet at night and just 2 miles away from a large QFC store. This park offers little more than a place to park your RV. There is no shade and the sites offer no privacy. Not an issue for us because the park was pretty empty and in November you don't struggle with heatwaves, but this might be a different story in summertime. And for what you get we feel the price is a little ambitious. We didn't use any facilities since we just stayed for one night. We would stay again, when in the area. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice, clean, well run park. A very nice quiet area across from Sequim Bay. Areas of grass and a very short walk to the marina. Most tenets are regulars from the south escaping the heat. Units are clean with flowers and friendly folks. Lots of green and quiet. Location is decent, eight minutes to shopping. Wi-Fi is good. Downside is outdated 30 amp service. Only two washers and one dryer in laundry. We would happily return. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

I made a reservation for two nights here at $33 plus tax a night. The manager was rude on the phone when I called to make a reservation. My mistake was going ahead and making the reservation. When I got to the park, her rudeness continued. Then after completing the charge to my credit card, she informed me I could not run an A/C because their system is outdated and will overload and shut down the entire park. And it was in the 80’s. She said just use fans or use your generator to run your A/C. This is ridiculous when you are staying in a supposedly professional park and paying $33 + tax per night. I cannot imagine having a manager that is so disrespectful to the customers when I did not say anything to provoke her. Other than the outdated electric and manager’s attitude, this is a decent park, but I would not stay here again due to the manager’s attitude.

Clean & quiet RV park. Sites are close together but have enough room for slideouts & awning. We were only going to stay for a week, but ended up staying for two weeks. Drawback is 30 amp. View of the bay is beautiful. Would stay here again. We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at Sequim Bay Resort from October to February, 2011. We love it! It is one of our favorite campgrounds. The view of Sequim Bay from our windows was incredible. We had full hook-ups (30 amp) including electric for the awesome price of $400 per month. I can't imagine a better deal anywhere. We saw lots of birds in the bay plus seals. We even had hummingbirds at our feeders. Shopping is nearby with Costco, Wal-Mart and Safeway & QFC Grocery and much more. The campground hosts are awesome, they even love geocaching like us. We highly recommend this campground and give it a 10 our of 10. We will be back! We camped at John Wayne's Waterfront Resort (formerly Sequim Bay Resort) in a Motorhome.
