Never again! This could be such a nice RV/campground but it's not! Right on river but so overgrown you can't get to it. Bathroom is so dirty my husband would not even think about using them, and he's not very picky. Sites are on top of each other, there is no Wi-Fi , laundry, game room, etc...but yet they charge $34.00 a night. The only thing this park has going for it is location it's about 35 mins from downtown Seattle. But about 15 miles away in Carnation WA, there is a better place. Also lots of live in people with junk every where that ruins a park for me. FYI; there is no sign saying turn here for this RV park and our GPS did not have the turn right, when I told the lady at check-in about this she say's "happens ALL the time!" Not sure if it happens all the time why you would not change it, but... So if you miss the turn you end up in a roundly round or small downtown area. Turn right before the bridge. - laears

Park is OK for a stay of a week or so. Short supply of parks in the general Seattle area. Entrance road is horrible - really not wide enough for two lanes, so you must go slow. Speed bumps every few feet. Typical riverside park with elevated electrical hookup because of being in flood plain. Staff friendly, but there is a depressed feeling about the place. Everything is JUST OK. Lots of weekenders which is to be expected because of the river. - PugetSound

Although it has a pool, it lacks what is expected of a true Rv resort. This park is similar to what is expected in a state park. Limited 5th service and other sewer. Trash dumpsters are not nearby. Price reflects a Passport America discount. It is way overpriced compared to other similar parks. We would not utilize again. - Gen G

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. - Y-Guy

This is a very nice park. Well kept and the staff are friendly enough. The park is a little tight but not horrid. Mostly permanent residents but it appears the sites were well kept.
We would stay here again. - Steve & Terri

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. - Tony Connie and Rusty

My family and I stayed here for several nights (hoping for a week but park had folks coming in with prior reservations). Nice clean park with new storage sheds on each site which allowed us to unload our truck so we could go shopping in town and not worry about our belongs being in the bed. Young manager who lives on site is pleasant and professional and grounds keeper helped us by giving us an extra block to level our jacks. Sites are gravel, wifi is decent, and restrooms were clean and simple. - PacificRVer

While visiting our daughter, we stayed at Nor'West RV Park and thoroughly enjoyed the cleanliness of the park and how we were made to feel. Management was very attentive to our needs and made us feel welcome and comfortable. Thanks

No on site management They only come long enough to collect the money. Police always there. Possible drug activity both there and at the apartments in the front. Appearance of lot is clean. They don't want you using restrooms so they Lock all but one stall and shut off one of the two showers. - seattlerver

Great place to visit with children or adults only. Pool was wonderful; there is a playground and also miniature golf to enjoy. A little difficult to get Directv because of number of trees but we were successful in getting a signal. Sites are spacious and level. Since we were there mid week there were a number of empty sites. We had a long site with lots of shade and privacy. - lstaff

We stayed here because of our rate (Coast-To-Coast), proximity to Seattle and we couldn't extend our stay is Issaquah. It worked for the few nights we were there. It's bit of an odd place. I had to page someone from the front gate to get checked in. then we had to find our own site and report it back to the front gate (after we set up). All the roads are gravel/dirt. It hadn't rained in ages so it was dusty. One of the workers stopped by he was very friendly. The front gate folks were a bit standoff-ish; it's just an odd place to check into. Even a member had to park their car and walk to the front check in gate to get a pass. We'd probably stay again if we needed to. The spaces are roomy and it's a quiet place. - TRDAWG
Jul 2015 - $49.00
Very nice park with spacious sites. 30 AMP / Water hookups, felt it was very pricey for the accomodations you received, plus the $4/person/day resort fee. For Thousand Trails members, this is a great option right outside of Seattle, but if you're not a member it's very expensive. I'd rate this much higher if the price were more reasonable for just W/E hookups. - DRFink
Aug 2015 - $38.00
Grassy large sights set among the trees at this small campground 2 miles off I-90 in North Bend. Only 8 sights, but not busy during the week since this is a Lutheran retreat area among the pines. Full hookups, but no TV. Very quiet and restful place with some nice trails to walk through the woods. Road getting in is a little narrow in spots for large motorhomes, but it can be done. Will definitely stay here again. - b7xv
Jul 2015 - $30.00
This is a great little "no frills" campground. It is a wonderful place to enjoy the beauty of nature, with full hook-ups for your RV. The sites are in a grass meadow. If it is full, which it rarely seems to be, your RV is very close to your neighbor's, similar to a parking space. However, if it's not full, they will spread out the RV's to allow for lots of space between them. The camp is surrounded by forest with tall trees, so finding satellite reception is not easy from all sites. We had to move around to get it. The camp hosts and management are very nice and helpful. There are walking trails, streams, and wildlife to enjoy. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 rating is that there's no pool/spa and no enclosed pet area, so dogs must be leashed at all times. If we're ever in the area, we will definitely return! - ADMD

Wonderful little church camp tucked into the Cascade foothills. While we were there nothing was going on so it was very quiet and peaceful. There was only one other RV there in addition to the camp host. Lots of trails for hiking, large green space. No store so take what you need. Full hookups. Some sites gravel, the rest are grass. Wifi worked well but wasn't super fast. Most sites good for satellite. If you want the feeling of being in a backwoods campsite with all the modern connections, this is the place. Narrow roads but no problem for big rigs. - glenthompson
Jul 2015 - $28.00
This is a very small campground. All sites are pull-through off the circle drive so they are an odd shape. Full hook ups. Very quiet. There is a historical bridge on the property over a river. Very pretty. The sites aren't quite level. Verizon signal was excellent. - Susan C.
Jun 2015 - $26.00
This is a fantastic campground, and is one of our favorites so far. The RV part of the campground is 16 sites, all crescent pull-throughs along the outside edge of a giant loop with a huge grass field in the middle. This means we had other RVs about 30 feet behind us and in front of us, but none on either side of us. The camping side of each site has a grass area with picnic table and fire ring but a heavily wooded border, so we had nearly complete privacy during our stay. It's a short walk down to the Tolt river where our dogs went swimming every day among various families staying at the campground or using the river for day use. The sites along the west side (the river) have good shade in the late afternoon and the most privacy. To sum up, it's a beautiful nature setting with huge sites, lots of grass and trees, very dog friendly, and has an accessible river with beach to top it all off. The park was sold out for the weekend but there were always sites available during weekdays. We made a reservation for a week (discounted weekly rate shown above, no extra taxes/fees), which is the maximum time you can stay in one site. Sites have 50 amp and water, but no sewer. There is a $9 commercial dump station (cash only via honor system envelopes) at the park exit. One downside is that there is only one shower per gender at the bathhouse, so we often had to wait quite a while for showers. Also, they clean the bathrooms once a day. With all the campers, that meant the showers got dirty quickly. We had very strong AT&T signal, our Verizon worked but was a little weak. Also be sure to note that the park gates are locked at 10 PM during the summer. We had to cut short an evening out with friends to ensure we made it back in time. Not only would we stay here again, we're looking forward to it! - LifeRebooted

Has only a few RV sites, this is a nice quiet park, with helpful staff. The Snoqualmie River is part of the park, and it has several nearby trails and walking areas. There is no WiFi, but the Carnation Library has free WiFi. No dump station. The best sites are the west sites. - SDBill

As is previous reviews ,sites are very tight. Not able to put awaning out. Park clean . Manager very helpful and friendly. She was a big to help us with ticket problem for base ball game. Location is out standing for day tripping into Seattle. Location is also bad for noise. Right next to fwy. - Rosco
Jul 2015 - $54.00
The service at Issaquah RV Park was excellent but the location is terrible. It's in an industrial area right next to the city yard and right next to the freeway. The sites are so close together that the neighbor's sewer hookup would have been under our awning if we had had room to extend it. We had hoped to entertain our 3 year old granddaughter for a picnic dinner but were unable to do so because the roar of the freeway traffic prevented any conversation. If you're desperate to find a quick overnight stay this might serve you well since it was clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful, but I wouldn't choose it again simply because of its location. - Black-Pearl
Jul 2015 - $52.00
Read all the other reviews about the small lot size; its true. Pay attention to what others have said about traffic noise; they are not exaggerating; this was by far the noisiest campground we have ever (in over 30 years) stayed in; I-90 is across the street and there is never a slow time.
Read the reviews about the friendly staff; they are true. The folks go our of their way to help.
This campground lets you leave your RV unattended for a side trip via boat or plane to cruise or run up to Vistoria (or anyplace else).
The campground is supper convenient to Seattle. Don't miss the chance to get into Issaquah; there are some neat place to eat and all the shops and chain stores you could need. - TRDAWG
Sep 2015 - $35.00
This is a fairly clean park. During the day there's some traffic and aircraft noise; at night it's quiet.
20 amp plus water sites are long, non-level grass and dirt with no shade. Utilities are at the back, and half are on the wrong side. Full hookup sites are shorter, non-level gravel and grass, with utilities in the usual locations. Each site has a picnic table.
Roads are asphalt in fair condition with some potholes and many annoying speed bumps.
There's one private shower per gender, $0.25 for 5 minutes. The men's shower is inadequately ventilated and usually muddy, with discolored tiles, a torn shower curtain, and cobwebs. I saw one silverfish.
Verizon LTE works well.
WiFi is strong. I measured 571.6 kB/s down.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
There are strong terrestrial broadcast TV signals from CBS and ION.
Laundry: 2 top-loaders ($1.75), 2 dryers ($1.50).
Rate is total with tax for a 20 amp site. - wjzcbn
Jun 2015 - $33.00
This place sucks! We were in space 16. The water and electric is over in space 15 next to us but unless you have long hoses and elect cord you won't hook up. Also it's only 20 amp service and recommend not using air conditioning as it will pop the breakers. We tried it at 90 degrees who would stay if you can't use air conditioners!?! It worked and didn't pop breaker. Also, pets have to stay inside camp spot on a leash. They cant even go to water and can't be walked inside campground. The woman of the campground isn't nice. Husband is a great guy! - Corey Esson
Oct 2014 - $35.00
The campground is $35 per night or $180 per week. It is very quiet, beautifully situated on the lake. In the office, very friendly employees. For visitors to the city of Seattle, the location is ideal. However, you need a vehicle (Towing-Car). The wifi is extremely fast. We felt very comfortable here and would definitely come back. - usa

Nothing special about this park, as others have reviewed. The park is conveniently located, right off I-90, which also contributes to the noise factor. We were camping in a 24' travel van, so we're given a space right across from the office. At first, we were unhappy with this location, then came to realize it was the best for least road noise. No privacy whatsoever and no picnic table, but this was not that kind of trip. Two nights here was plenty, but we spent all day outside the park. It's not a place you want to hang out in. Good for what it was, though. There is an indoor pool and large laundry room, which we didn't use. - PrtlndTrvlr
Jul 2015 - $41.00
This is an urban RV park. The sites are very close, completely paved so no grass, some trees and the majority are permanent residents. There is a play area for children and an indoor pool which we did not use and I am not sure is open for use. If you are a light sleeper or traveling with dogs that require a mile long walk this is not the RV park for you. The dog walk area is outside the RV park gate on 1 side only and measures approximately 100'X25'. There are waste bags readily available but some ignorant owners feel they do not have to comply and I find that disgusting. There is a sidewalk that you can walk your pet but it borders business's and once again some left dog waste.
There is non-stop road noise from very busy I-90 that is next to the 2 one way roads in front of the RV park. If you require quiet surroundings to get to sleep this is not the RV park for you.
The people at the office are very helpful with information on getting into Seattle etc.. We opted to drive the short distance to the East Gate park & ride and ride the express bus into Seattle each day. You can walk or ride you bike to this location also. We are both in our 60's and the fare is $1 per person each way and parking is free. Great deal when you do not have to deal with all the traffic going into the city and premium price to park your car. The people in the RV office will provide you with paperwork detailing bus times & stops. One word of advice is to arrive at the park & ride before 11 AM otherwise you may not get a parking spot.
This RV park fit our needs which was to be close enough to Seattle to avoid an hour long commute. We hired a dog service to come to our motorhome twice a day to walk our dog to allow us flexibility. This worked perfectly.
We would stay here again if we find ourselves in this area again. - petpeople

We stayed at the Travel Inn for 4 days in our 40' RV. The web site and google earth are very misleading. Out of all the parks we have stayed in across the lower 48, this is the worst. It is mostly extended travelers or full time residents. They are crammed in so tightly that it is hard to get into and I have been into some tight spots. While they look like all pull thrus they are not. It all depends on how they put you in a spot and how big your rig is. We were in a pull thru. If your neighbor has a travel trailer or a tow car they may park that vehicle in whatever space you have left over on your space. It was so tight in the road ways that trucks and cars just parked in the middle of the road and you had to ask someone to move in order to drive through them. You cannot put an awning out without hitting your neighbor. We put our slide out only half way. The place is very trashy and while we were there some guy walked through the parking lot (this is what it really is) with a leaf blower blowing all the trash, dust, dirt into your RV and space. We did not feel safe leaving my motorcycle or anything of value outside overnight. There is no security and no gates. Your close to the freeway so you will hear that the entire time your there. We made reservations in January so we could not cancel without losing money but, we were tempted to. The only thing that kept us from doing this was that there were no other parks with vacancies and we planned to see Seattle and this was the closest park. The utilities were in working order but, you had to share the water hook up. The restroom and shower were old and out of date and not clean. Several of the laundry machines were not working or took your coins and didn't work. The pool and spa closed at 8PM. The only plus is its location close to Seattle. We will never stay here again. - SteelHorseRider
Jun 2010 - $33.00
A lovely state park campground, that is very well maintained. It is also heavily used and quite busy, but that is because it is so accessible to Seattle and a worthwile destination. The only downside is that pull through sites for larger rigs are narrow and sharply curved among the large trees, making pulling through any site in a rig longer than about 35' a real chore. I had the very most accessible site in the park, and I had to back into the pull-through to situate in my 40' MH. But the beauty and features of the park make this worthwhile. We would stay here again. - Boiler

Clean, relatively quiet, private sites, beautiful setting on the cold and clear Green River (a refreshing dip on a hot summer day). Clean bathrooms and showers with lots of hot water. Park gets full on summer week-ends. - Let'sGoCamping

We had site #30, a nice long, paved, level, shaded pull-through with 30 amp electric but no water. The one-way road in the CG was a bit narrow but no problem, we have a 30 ft class A. We loved our site, the picnic table/fire ring area was really large and felt private with lots of trees, flowers and other greenery. The park was full over the weekend but reasonably quiet. Mt. Rainier National Park is an easy, very pretty day trip from this park. - mahaffee
Nov 2011 - $15.00
A small park with a very nice owner. Most of the sites have full-time residents. The place is quiet, but doesn’t have much in the way of amenities (picnic area with a horseshoe pit), but the price was right. There is also a nice grass volleyball court and a pond to sit by on the owners adjoining property. - Travelin'
Aug 2015 - $1.00
Large park with pull thru and back in sites. All sites level gravel. The big rigs pull thru sites are very narrow, not enough room for awning if rig in next site. 75% of the sites do not have sewer and all only have 30 amp. Tall pine trees so 90% of sites have no satellite signal. Next to with direct access to Lake Sawyer. No pool, spa or exercise room. Wi-fi extra thru outside service. Very good Verizon cell and 4G signal. Nice kid's areas but no activities such as breakfasts etc. Staff great. We would stay there again. Private membership park, Sunrise Resorts. Cost listed is for Sunrise member and also accept RPI, C 2 C not ROD. - Pepper Dan
Jun 2015 - $10.00
This park is old and shows it. The bathrooms have not been updated since they were built. Although there are sewer hookups, most sites are not allowed to use them. There used to be cable hookups, but since cable went digital, cable is no longer available. A satellite signal is not possible at least 50% of the sites. The power supply is iffy, at best. The first day we were there, the power went off and on due to the load of a warm summer day. Internet access is provided through a fee-based company.
On the positive side - the staff are friendly and the park is on Lake Sawyer. - LB Rohn

We stayed here in a 40 footer. Spots were a little tight and unlevel. No sewer in our section. The place was quiet. No satellite reception. AT&T was good. Park Wi-Fi was good too; cost $5 for 3 days. Cost reflects Coast to Coast rate. - walt66

We stayed for three nights at Denny Creek. This was our second time at the campground. It's a beautiful place. The sites are widely spaced, and unlike most National Forest Service campsites, some of them have electricity. The campground is just 50 minutes from downtown Seattle, which makes it a very popular place. I've found my fellow campers there to be very quiet - but maybe that isn't because of the campers. Perhaps it's because of the background hum of the freeway noise that drowns them out. It's constant, but varies in intensity. Sometimes it's a whisper, and then the whisper turns into a roar as a semi driver roars overhead using his compression brakes. The freeway is elevated 100 feet above, while the campground is at the bottom of the valley. There are no RV utilities other than a few sites with 30amp service. There isn't even a sewer dump station. For that you can go to Lake Easton State park about 20 miles east, or Lake Sammamish State Park about 35 miles west. Verizon cell service is okay, but there is no broadcast TV reception. Good luck finding satellite TV, given the dense and shady forest you're unlikely to connect. Still, for some reason I like this campground. The hikes that start at the campground (Franklin Falls & Denny Creek Slide) are really terrific - and very popular for a good reason. They are easy to moderate difficulty and very beautiful. For a quick 2-3 night getaway close to the city, Denny Creek does okay as long as you can ignore the I-90 traffic noise. Despite the drought, the NFS was still allowing campfires in the fire pits. They didn't overreact like the state parks. I like Denny Creek - I don't love it, but I like it. - SeaTeacher

My wife and I just returned from three wonderful nights at Denny Creek campground. Deep in the woods with hiking trails all over. Not only did we ride our bikes, but walked up to Franklin Fall. The trail to Franklin Fall are well maintained mile hike each way. The bathrooms were clean with flush toilets. There are no showers, no RV hook ups other than a few with 30 amp power. Lots of tents and travel trailers all seemed to be a natural fit. Camp fires nightly at each site. We had a pull through site. Needed a bit more leveling, but nothing a block didn't fix. The only reason for a 9 rating was the freeway noise, Denny Creek is between East and West bound I-90 two or three miles from Snoqualmie summit. The park hosts were very nice and went out of their way to help if needed or sell you fire wood if you run out. We ran out. The road into Denny Creek is narrow. We RVed in a 35' rig and a few times cars had to stop or move over just allow us to go by. To be sure, Denny Creek will be a annual trip, just an hour and a half from home. This is a great place to enjoy nature. - Buyer1

Just an update on the campground. There is no bridge restriction on Exit 47 anymore. I did not realize that and followed the advice of a previous reviewer and got off on Exit 53 and came in the back way with a very large rig. It was not fun. The campground has 50 amp service in 029, the campsite we are currently occupying. I don't know about rest of sites. I was only expecting 15 amp service so was pleasantly surprised. Very isolated but the hosts are friendly and helpful. There is considerable road noise but not objectionable when inside the camper. North Bend is a wonderful scenic mountain town with all the supplies you will need at normal city prices. Will stay again, but it is not big rig friendly. - illuvplanes

We booked a spot for a 40 ft Fifth Wheel, 2 persons and two cats for one week. Price agreed 35 per night since off season.
We never received a confirmation so called (12 times!) - they claimed wrong email when they finally answered. When we received the confirmation - no price, no details etc - called 23 times left messages but no one returned my call. E-mailed three times - no answer Called central office - just apologized for badly run campground but confirmed email address was correct.
Showed up - booking was for a tent (!), one person and no pets and they wanted double the money - went furious and after discussions was given my correct price after showing my emails that were never answered. Site was so small/narrow that it was 9 inches between our slide and the neighbor. We tried to talk to the manager but she was on sick leave. The ONLY positive was that there is a bus outside that takes you to Seattle in 40 min for only 3 bucks. Never ever pay the 60 dollars they ask for, a rip off for sure.
We are full timers and can compare not only to another 79 campgrounds but also to 12 KOA and normally KOA stands for slightly higher price and a higher service and standards. STAY AWAY or get ripped. Even WiFi unusable. Not a co-incidence that they have so low rating even on Tripadvisor.
Sites extremely small, location close to public transportation good, staff uneven, pads even, good water pressure, we had to park the truck away from our site. Park was renting out its green areas to receptions for nearby companies.
Find another campground if you don´t need to be close to Seattle. Do call the central office to get your price confirmed since it is not in the emailed confirmation even though they charge a deposit when you book. - BasilFawlty

We stayed in one of the premium back-in sites since our fifth wheel is 42' long, though they would have let us stay in a pull-through. Other reviewers stating that the sites are small and on top of each other are referring to the pull-throughs. They have approximately eight sites that are longer, wider and are back-ins, but they are more expensive. We had plenty of room in our back-in site. The overall feeling as you drive through the campground is that it is decently maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. When we decided to leave a few days early, they didn't hesitate in giving us a refund for the days we didn't use.
The general area is mostly commercial. Night-time traffic is noisy at times, especially on the weekends. Cars with loud exhausts and motorcycles were often ripping up and down the main road near the campground.
We did have our bicycles stolen from the front of our rig - our first theft of any kind in three years of full-time RVing. The cable lock was cut and the bikes taken sometime in the middle of the night. We informed the front desk just to let them know and they acted surprised that "security" didn't see it happen. We never really saw anything that resembled "security" while we were there.
We have family in the area and will not stay here again. We've already started looking at other places for next year's visit. - travelingtalleys

At first reading all the other reviews we almost didn't bother with this place but I had a work meeting so we had to stay here. Worried, we drove to the park but once there we realized that it is just fine. The office people were fine, the park looks fine, the driveways are ok, not the widest we have seen but we have a 41 ft motorhome and had not problem. We got site 153 (back in) and had at least 8-10 feet between our slides to our neighbors beside. Not sure what with the other reviews??
$60 plus tax is steep so we will not stay here again.
There is some road noise but not major problem. - Presidio40

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. - Eureka12

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. - teepee51

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. - rolling homeless

GREAT place to Explore Mt Rainier NP. Concrete Pad with Lots pf grass. Water and Elect only. NO DUMP.NO WI-FI, would have marked higher.Very Friendly Camp Hosts that know the AREA well. Nice grass area for your dog exercise. Back in sites only, but large enough for 40 ft 5th wheel. Enumclaw Golf Course(18 Hole) about 1/2 mile away. Lots of restaurants and Grocery stores. - silverado

Stayed 5 nights - nice campground with large sites. Great camp hosts. There are showers and restrooms in the fairgrounds they could use a cleaning, but will work. Utilities were very good, but no sewer. We have used this campground on our visits to see family in the area. - rwjsim2003

We used this CG as a stop over for seeing family campground was nice basically a large parking lot but in good shape. We meet with another couple here also and I liked the setup they have where you face door to door very nice. Only down fall was that they were having kids football league all day Saturday and Sunday and the kids were running a muck and very loud at 7am and there was no campground host on the days we stayed. If you stay here I suggest you stay in the far back spaces and you would not be bothered by the Noise of the Football field I understand it was only two weekends a year just our luck we picked that weekend. - rwjsim2003

Dogs barking (pit bulls), campers burning garbage (stinks) One trailer was allowing their tanks to drain onto campsite and running into street. Sites are long enough for big rigs. 7 day limit. Some trailers were really run down. We will not be back unless we have to. We usually stay at the Puyallup Fairgrounds but couldn't because the fair was going on. - catrst

What a gem this place is. We were a little underwhelmed when we arrived but the surroundings are beautiful and it was a wonderful place to stay. Sites are asphalt and level. Stayed for 5 days. Loved the bike/walking path. Can ride for miles along the river and through the trees without crossing a road! If you are into disc golf this is the place for you! Grass is brown because they don't water but the trees are magnificent. It must be beautiful in the fall. They do keep the trees trimmed so they don't rub on your rig. We had no problem with our 38' class A motorhome. Camp host is a great guy. No wifi but Verizon LTE is strong and hotspot worked great. Our Directv roof mounted dish also worked great, even through the trees. Nice to have shade at our site #12. It's about a 45 minute drive to downtown Seattle and if I came back I would look into the public transportation as an option to driving. - thekites

This is a City of Auburn owned park with only 18 sites having 30 amp power and water only. Sewer Dump available near park exit. Park is about 3 miles off the freeway, so its very quiet overall. It is in the Residential part of the City. Spaces are VERY wide with fire rings and a full time on site manager that will do anything to make your stay enjoyable! Excellent location for seeing Seattle and the surrounding area. Other parks are very expensive IF you can get in at all. Many walking trails nearby for walking along the river or biking. Most sites are shaded some in the sun, but all are shaded during the day at some point, as trees are close by around the park, and very TALL! We would stay here again! - AlaskaJack

Staff was friendly, cordial and helpful. The site was drive-thru with full hook-ups, 50AMP. Sites don't offer a lot of space but enough for a picnic table, and usually for the toad or tow vehicle. Sites are mostly separated by small trees and shrubs and maintenance works hard to maintain the park like landscape. Roads and sites are paved, not perfectly level but close. Amenities are nearby and this is a quiet park, though close to I-405 and I-5. We enjoy our stays here and will return in the future. - SilverBear

I rated this low. For $25/night it had to be the worst WA state park we have ever stayed in. Sites 1-4 are the ones where supposedly the large RVs should be. They are as close together as any commercial campground, so no privacy, noise from your neighbor's generator, etc. There were other pull through sites that would have worked. The website just didn't show they were available for larger rigs, but we saw a RV larger than ours on one of them, That would have been a much more pleasant spot with a little more privacy. $25/night for no hooks and no working dump station felt like it was priced too high. You also get charged extra if you are not a WA state resident and want to make a reservation. Unlike most Western WA state parks, there is little or no vegetation between any of the RV sites in this park. Only sites with any privacy are in the tent or very small class B RV area. You are in the flight path of SeaTac so you do get that noise. On the plus side, nice hiking trail in the park and easy walk to the beach area. Probably not a park we'll stay in again. - DRFink

Nice woodsy park between Seattle and Tacoma. We were in a 45' motorhome and except for one tight turn because of a parked camper sticking out, I was able to navigate thru the park and to the campsite with care, but no problem. The showers do not work (was told by camp host). The place is a bit overgrown. I had to trim a tree as not to scrape going into my site. Site 1 - 4 are best for big rigs. Easy to back in to and easy to pull out. No hookups (as advertised) and a good price. The beach is great. A nice paved path along the waterfront is nice. A good restaurant called Wally's Chowder House a couple of miles away was wonderful. The park is great for camping. Just not very well maintained with the lack of budget in the WA State Park System. - JoeVinnie

The park was extremely well maintained. There were many trails to explore, and the beach access had excellent low-tide pooling for investigation. Our site right next to the creek was wonderful. Detractions included the airline traffic heading to/from Seatac (pretty minor, but noticeable) and the dry camping (offset by running a generator to recharge batteries). - bradrf

This RV park is mostly for people that want to stay longer term. Lots are larger with small rock and asphalt pads. Sewer hookups are different and on the wrong side of the RV sometimes.
There is about a lot of rules there and there are 2 that seem a bit extreme to us. One is that we had to weed our lots even though it cost us $485 a month. The other is that the RV's next to you can not hear noise from your area, which is difficult if your outside with friend BBQing. So this is not a place to stay if you like to have any social time with family or friends. Also electric is not included, and that is fine however out electric bill was really high and we were gone 2 weeks of each month. We were selling a house at the time and our 5 bedroom SB had a lower electric bill then the RV did. So not sure why that was. - Sohapi

We had to stay here over a month as it was the only RV park in the area of our family's residence. Rate reflected is for a monthly rate of $425. Expect $40 back ground check (which has to be submitted prior to going to the park), and a amazing 13 page document of "rules". If staying a month or more you must contact the Electric company to have them activate your site. No laundry facilities, no pool, no amenities at all. Manager very snooty woman who is seldom around when you need information. We would not go back. - KomfortTravelers

Pros - great store, manager very helpful, close to Mt Rainier and Seattle, sites are fairly level and large, parts of the park are very nice, great cable TV Cons - Management requires you to sign a 5 page contract, Owner operates tractor throughout the park daily, owner has many disagreements with tenants, dusty, many permanent trailers that are a little messy, internet costs extra, is slow, and is by a third party, some questionable people in the park at night, they require that you have your doggie bag out and visible when walking your pet, no dog area I enjoyed my stay here but felt that it would be easy to get in an argument with the manager who, in my opinion means well but is quick to anger. - Donco

Friendly and helpful staff. Gravel streets & sites. All back-ins. Very easy parking from wide streets; no posts, rocks, fences, etc. Sites vary in size; ours was 20 feet wide. No picnic tables or fire rings. Well maintained. Water pressure 60#. On grounds store sells sandwiches in addition to usual RV Park store supplies. Many permanent residents; they are friendly and generally have attractive, well kept sites. Their children and pets are well behaved. Many tree & shrub plantings, no grass, no mowers, no leaf blowers – hooray. The wooded creek toward the back of the park has a sand bag levee. Choose higher ground in high water conditions. Good Verizon signal. Cable TV good except for very poor reception on ABC & NBC. We felt peaceful in the pleasant surroundings and will come here again. Environmentally unconscious; no recycling. - meanderingman

I spent a week and a half here and enjoyed it. The owner and people working at the park were friendly and helpful. I think this is the best park in the south sound area and will stay there whenever I visit the area. They have a large gravel pull through section with full hookups, its gently sloped back to front and fairly level but un-landscaped, no picnic tables. The store is pretty well supplied. Spots along the creek are in the long term section. - User1806

We took the 15 miles detour from I-5 because we are always looking for quiet places to spend the night. That's what we got. Tucked away in the woods and far from all shopping amenities. The paved road through the park is very tight and winding. We had to take it really slow with our 34' trailer in tow. Maneuvering into the back in site was tight as well, but we managed. Don't take anything bigger in there.
Sites are gravel and fairly level. No water in the park this time of the year. We knew and had the fresh water tank filled before. Power was stable. Verizon signal strong and steady. Very quiet at night, no traffic noise and no train noise whatsoever.
We'll come back when travelling in the area. - TheSchweitzers

No sewer. Hot showers (coin), but restrooms can be muddy from rainy days and/or lake swimmers. Hilly park roads. Beautiful woodsy sites.

Very tight driveway to the sites, and we, with a 29 foot trailer and crew cab truck, probably would not fit in many spaces. We had to pay for a premium site, which was not anything above the others, but we fit. Could not get satellite TV as the trees are thick, which would be good on a hot day, but it was raining while we were there and it was quite a mess. Long narrow roads to get there once you leave Highway 2, and hard to get back on Highway 2 going east once you leave; too much traffic. - djtel

The sites are wide and there is a pool and showers. However, after we got our motorhome leveled off and slide outs extended we discovered that there are NO WATER connections at the sites. All plastic pipes above ground have been broken at each site. Camp Host offered no realistic explanation, nor was there a note in the sign up box to that effect. There is a fresh water spigot near the dump station, but who knew we needed to fill up before setting up ? There are showers available for use but they're not in great shape. We will not return to this Elks Lodge unless the water issue is corrected. - RVtravelers2

30 Amp with Water and easy access Dump station. Showers available when the pool is open or just ask and they will let you use them. Grass spots with enough room that makes it comfortable. We eat Sunday breakfast and had dinner a couple of times. They have a golf course next to them that is private but they have an arrangement so that if you are staying there you can use it. Swimming pool available showers are available in the pool house if you ask.
I can only give an overall grade of 8 to any site that does not have sewer connection at the pad. But other than that this is a 10 site. - Gilbert & Gail

The only plus to this state park is the location close to Seattle. Beware - it is difficult for a big rig. We have a 38 ft 5th wheel and the road into the park was very windy, lots of tall trees, I would advise people to not try to navigate this in the dark or at dusk when towing. Park really needs to trim some trees if they want to make this big rig friendly. Our site was B49, right next to the ampitheather. Supposedly a pull-through site, but no way could we make the turn around the tree in the curved part of the site. We ended up backing in from the other side of our site. Verizon coverage was awful in this park, Sprint and AT&T was okay, but only with boosters, no coverage without boosting equipment. Park is a bit run down due to lack of funding. Not sure we'll ever stay here again even though we have friends to visit within 5 miles of this location. Way too expensive for the hassle. Day use fees are collected at this park and you can end up with a very long back up to get into the park. They do not have a separate lane in the entry area for those that are already checked in and paid. Waited in line 20 minutes one time, just to get into the park. - DRFink

We stayed here only one night and this campground appears to be old and run down. Our picnic table was covered in green algae and had a chunk out of the corner. We had a pull through site so we did have privacy on one side but the spots are pretty close together. Dogs were barking, radios blaring, etc. We won't be back. Also, this park is set in the middle of a residential neighborhood which is kind of strange, and didn't exactly give me a feeling of safety. - TGordon

We would/will definitely stay here again if we need to be in the Lynnwood area. - earlymun

Access to the campground is through the parking lot of another business, easy to miss the signs and the driveway entrance. Interior roads are paved, but sites are gravel. The sites are extremely tight; I had to crawl under my neighbor's slide to connect my power and water. My site was not level and too short, the manager had to put warning cones in the roadway. No room for my tow rig, so I had to shuffle it around among open spots in neighboring sites. We were parked under the brightest floodlight ever made - I had to tape a black garbage bag over my vent dome to sleep. Most of the residents are permanent, with only about six for transients. I stayed here because of the location near the hospital and ferry, but never again. - Doug Atterbury

The park is paved and very tight. Every inch of ground is utilized for sites. There are only a few pull thrus that are so short most rigs with tows will still have to be disconnected which defeats the purpose of a pull thru site. Many sites are occupied by permanent campers. If your site is near the office you will hear road noise. The positive aspects is the location to the Boeing Facotory and the Old Birds Museum, both well worth the time. You will have commercial jets flying overhead as the jets produced by Boeing are test flown. Grocery stores and shopping nearby. The people in the office are very helful & informative. - petpeople

This price reflects the monthly rate, as we stay here while making our annual visits to our doctors. Their new rate is $550 plus electricity. They also charged us $90 for electricity. Sites are tight when you have slides. It is 50 amp with full hookups and pull-through spots. The majority of people live here full time and there are a few dumpy sites. We are booked to go back as it is convenient to Seattle. - rolling homeless
Sep 2014 - $12.00
Rate stated is based on monthly back-in rate of $350 per month. Electricity is extra on monthly rate. This is as good an RV park as I can imagine getting in a densely populated urban area. Spaces vary in spaciousness but none are huge and some are quite tight. Again, this is an urban area with high real estate values. To the maximum extent possible, privacy is provided by shrubbery. There is no visibility between us and our neighbors. Management is exceptionally congenial. Pet policies are reasonable and reasonably enforced. There are numerous pet areas, and nobody gets bent out of shape if a pet won't wait, as long as you pick up. There is a very nice pet area where I can play ball with my little girl dog, which greatly eases the excess energy problem some dogs have in a restrictive park. Neighborhood isn't bad but isn't the greatest, however we have had no safety concerns even walking around after dark. Landscaping is informal but attractive and neat. The little lake with spray fountain is a nice touch and it is relaxing to sit on one of the many benches overlooking it. There are numerous semi-permanent residents. Many cars depart early morning and return after work. Mail can be sent to the street address without noting you are living at an RV park. Their sites are set up for convenience and many for outdoor dining but are neat and clean. Restrooms and laundry are exceptionally updated and clean. We have zero complaints about this facility. - pompomgirl

All RV parks around Seattle seem to have problems and are expensive for what you get. Maple Grove may be one of the best, that does not mean it deserves a high rating. While good in some ways, it has many issues, which mostly revolve around tight and extremely in-level sites. While we managed with a big rig, this is not a big rig friendly park. We had to leave our front slide in - in order to level and avoid a large tree. Extremely tight for the toad. - PSWeb

The staff was rude. Didn't say they were repaving the black top until 8am of our 1st day. Nor did they say there would be no driving on it 24 hours. So unlevel they provided 3 2x6 boards screwed together (one for front and one for back). This was basically a tight parking lot with no room. Would never stay there again. Was going to stay 9 nights but only stayed one. Better choices available. - CMHerman

Where to start with my comments. First the website falsely leads you to believe that this is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay near the water. 2 out of the 4 photos are not from the park. Out of the sites they have only 5 or so we're available for over night stays. This is 90% permanent stays, although they are mostly tidy in appearance. This place is WAY overpriced for the type of park and experience. Based on where we have stayed on this trip and what we have paid at other places this is outrageous! The sites are gravel and very close together and we had concerns about getting our 40' bus out of the lot. There are not many options in town and we planned on visiting Seattle so for a base camp was ok. We would not stay here again. The manager was helpful but very concerned with the actual age of our coach and didn't know what a conversion was to understand the look of our setup. Although he later explained that the older motor homes have propane systems that don't meet their insurance standards. He almost turned us away without explaining that when we were making reservations. - KellyLynnHoff

This is an update on some two year old reviews. This is an OK park. A very friendly and helpful manager. Sites are gravel with paved roads, they are 20-25ft wide and 38ft plus deep. There are 10 pull through sites that are 25ft by 75ft. There are long stay units but the only items stored outside was lawn furniture. There were no safety concerns in our 4 night stay. Free WiFi is slow but OK. There is only one unisex toilet/ shower that is disabled set up. All cars/ RVs parked off road. We have a 44ft 5er and maneuvering was tight, but big motor homes would have no trouble. The landscaping could certainly use some attention. - TedandJan

Rented space for a month. Price quoted does not factor in $20 to read electric box, $25 for two rigs (including the one you pull with). Overflow parking, 5 spaces. Even tho they take all info down your rigs may not fit the space. Might have to drive your 2nd vehicle to park elsewhere. Hwy 99 is six lanes here, getting out is difficult even in a car. Washing machines were dirty with a sign that said "Please wipe down when finished", they obviously don't clean them. One dumpster for 65 sites, full before pick-up day. Gravel, no grass. Friendly manager, but this park has problems. - rainyday

First, the good...the young woman in the office was extremely helpful and pleasant. While the RV park is also a mobile home park, the two are kept separate. There is a pretty little creek (not really accessible) that runs along the back of the property.
We stayed here on the weekend of the drag races, so the place was pretty full.
Now for the rest...
We had reservations but some people didn't leave so what we reserved was not available and we had two options - parallel park our 40' 5th wheel between two carnival rigs or back into a spot that was 30 amp service. Couldn't back in all the way because of overhanging tree limbs.
The "dog walk" is a joke. It's actually a road w/ signs threatening fines if we don't pick up after our dogs. My dogs won't poop on a road. Oh, yeah, the dog walk is where they wanted to parallel park us.
There are NO refunds. Make sure you like your spot before paying by cash or check (they don't take credit cards.)
The place is not kept up. The roads are fairly narrow. The sites are adequately wide. Trees surround the park.
We would NOT stay here again. - User3146

Do to the past reviews, we were a little reluctant to stay at this park. We found the office person very friendly and helpful. Our site was 75' x 20. Very adequate. Very nice and friendly park. If I were you I would ignore the past reviews. The road in is blacktop, and the parking sites and on Gravel, so what. We stayed over the 4th of July and were near an Indian Reservations. The fireworks sounded like dynamite. My two little dogs were shaking the whole week we were there. Not the parks fault. We would definitely stay their again, but not over the 4 th of July. - Journey39k

Nothing as advertised. Hookups were at the back of the site so we had to drive to get a longer TV cable and extension for sewer. Fortunately we had an extra water line. TV cable was useless as the cable in my site did not work except for an Xfinity advertisement. We did have one of the few picnic tables but it was so old and dirty I would not use it. WiFi worked off and on. We decided to swim since we had nothing to do but office closed early so we couldn't get the key. Discovered after reading the sign on the pool gate that the pool would be open at the discretion of the office. The pool had a cover over it when we drove in so it was not being used anyway. Would get my money back and move since I am here for three nights but there is a "no refund policy." Obviously, I would never stay here again. - Missdijean

Had a relative in a nearby hospital, making this location very convient. As stated before, ground is soft when rains hit, but the camp host showed me a good spot. Nothing special about the park, but well suited for area travels. Weather turned very cold while there, causing water problems, but worked though it. Site can get very close but there were about 10 rvs on site, so plenty of room. - sfretts

If you're going to see stuff or do something in Tacoma this is a great location. As mentioned, it's just a big grassy parking lot with full hookups. You can save $5/night by signing up and paying in the Fair office. I can't say that it's convenient for running into Seattle. The fact of the matter is the traffic into Seattle is horrible. You can pretty much count on 1.5 + hrs to drive 30 or 40 miles unless you get very lucky. Right now it's a combination of traffic volume, construction, weather, and accidents. We went into the Seattle from here 3 times and each time it was at least 1.5 hrs each way. That being said I'm not sure there's any place else to stay around the area that would be any better. When we stayed here there were only about a dozen sites filled so we had plenty of space. When it's full you'd pretty much be right on top of one another. Verizon MiFi worked great. We'd stay here again. - pumper9x9

RV park is grassy field, reasonable price for FHUs in the Seattle area. No amenities, it's a fairground parking experience.

From the pictures on the website, we thought we'd have a waterfront site, but we had to walk or drive down to the day use area to see the water. It was really nice down by the water, and I enjoyed seeing the ferries along with the historical sites. Our site was nice, but very dark, whether the day was sunny or not. We had some nice fires, but didn't expect such darkness. It is a nice place, and the facilities are great. The rangers are very helpful, but now only work part time because of budgets. Good, yes, but not what we expected from the website. - LeeL

They are listed as having 50 amp but it is only in one or two sites. The 30 worked fine for the time of year we were here. It was cool and rainy so we didn't need AC. Park roads were paved and they only had one loop open. Roads in this loop were a bit tight in a couple of places but not a big problem. Sites are gravel and pretty level for the most part. The sites we had had water and electric and there's an on site dump station that has easy access in and out. The showers will cost you 1 token (50 cents) for 3 minutes. You will spend the first minute an a half waiting for the water to warm up. They didn't spend any time cleaning the shower for the 5 days we were here. The sites were quiet and you could hear the ferries going into Bremerton but it was not loud. I'd stay here again. - pumper9x9

Stayed for most of the summer. Lovely little quiet park, in the back of a subdivision, up a very steep hill in a rural location near Orting. Only back ins available. Long term stays also required to pay a $10.00 fee to the Buttes homeowners association and for electricity usage. Poor cell service for AT&T. NO wifi included. They say they have it but it doesn't work. Cable is NOT included, but the hook up available if you call and pay for it. Xfinity Wifi is an available option using your modem, pay by the week or month. Nothing fancy, but lovely location and very small. 14 spaces. Everyone is very friendly. Lovely campground hostess. Deer abound and are not fearful of people. Basically a space on asphalt and gravel under the trees, with hookups. They do have a laundry room with one washer and dryer. Haven't used it. - travlinrose

Nice paved site adjacent to beautiful Lake Easton - kayaker heaven. Pretty park but close to I-90. You can hear Lots of highway traffic all night. While our visit was in the shoulder season and peaceful, the large day use area and boat launch area look heavily used. - Janet H

One of our favorite state parks in WA. We really enjoy camping here. The campground looks radically different than a few years ago due to the removal of a large number of trees that were diseased. While regrettable, the camp is now more open and sunny. We had a pull-through site (#19), which we normally prefer but the angle of pull through made for a very difficult positioning and hook-up. Next time, we will pick one of the large back in sites (>#21) as they look super easy to get in to. We hiked all the way around the lake, which is farther than most folks think - 5.2 miles. Great hike though, with lots of good views of the Cascades. Overall a great trip, with a couple of downsides: 1. The Park Rangers at this park are absolutely everywhere. I don't know why they are on such a power trip, but they are constantly patrolling armed to the teeth in SWAT-like gear. 2. The truck stop-like store across the highway, while very convenient, is a rip-off joint with outrageous prices and surly staff. Avoid it if possible. - Maqui Mike

Price reflects non-resident rate. We stay here at least once a year. One of our favorite parks, but can't give it a 10 due to highway noise. Book sites between 25 and 40 to minimize noise from I-90. - User3773

Took grandsons for the swimming pool. Pool not open, on the 4th of July. Campground extremely dusty. A tall fifth wheel will have trouble with tree branches in sites. Got a hole in my rubber roof two years ago , in a site there. Not recommended. I put don't know on the availability of swimming pool because you never know if it will be open - rehless

We heard a lot about this place from other campers that post on RV Park Reviews. This camp ground was packed to the brim, dogs-kids every where and boy was it noisy--fun as hell to be around. The park offered a lake access below where we were parked and there was a lot of games going on on the beach. We will for sure be coming back again next year. - kara9

There are only 2 full hook up sites available. One of which is used by the camp host. Mosquitoes were very bad. Some nice hiking trails. Only got about 4 min worth of hot water in shower and it cost me 50 cents for this. Dump station was closed. - retnavrib

Online photos showed shaded spacious sites but those were only being utilized by permanent RV residents. The pull thru sites were long and narrow with no room to sit outside or even open our awning. Slides almost touched the neighboring RV on both sides. The back end of our fifth wheel was so close to the road coming into the park it felt like we would get hit. So glad we only stayed 4 nights & it was cool while we were there so we didn't need to use ac. Laundromat was clean. Nothing much to do in Poulsbo either. - RendezVous

Site was gravel, very narrow, width of a parking space at WalMart. Minimal room for slide-outs, no room for awning. No trees or shade, no privacy. Could not sit outside, no room to grill. Several full-time residents with their accumulated possessions all around. Not a pleasant camping experience, probably one of the two worst we have experienced. - RDV

We stayed 3 weeks at $210/wk over June-July. We had a back-in site at the far back end with a bit more room than any of the pull-thrus or back-ins near the front. Internal roads are paved, a little narrow near the curves. Sites are gravel with back-ins around the perimeter having the most shade. Pull-thrus are extremely narrow with no shade at all and not wide enough to comfortably fit a picnic table. Cable requires a box that you get from the office. Wifi is Tengo and you get codes for each device when you check in. Water pressure was oustanding. Office staff was always pleasant and helpful. Clean orderly park. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were cleaned everyday and one of the office staff went out everyday picking up litter around the sites. No off leash dogpark, pool or playground. There's a small presence of long-term and permanent residents with their associated "stuff" spread out. We enjoyed our stay here and will definitely return. - Flippitti

This is a nice, clean park. The full time residents (95%) are all friendly. The negatives are lots of road noise, day and night. The park sits on the road to the Seattle ferry. Also, there is a 4 page, double sided, fine print set of rules and a two page registration form. They are trying to keep the undesirables out, but have overdone it. This park is not designed for an overnight stay. If you are looking for a long term stay in this area, I would recommend this park. - retiredfields

This is/continues to be (at least for us) a step or two up from boon docking. Roads are somewhat narrow, but that's okay. My pull through site was partially blocked by a tree so that I had to back in, but that's okay. Pads weren't quite level, but that's okay too! It's a real campground. Pleasantly surprised by the free showers. Also while crowded, the camp was very quite. There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas, including hiking, and alpine lake fishing. Best of all. No cell phone reception! My total rig length while towing is 45'. I did okay, but this camp is really designed for campers with rigs up to 25 feet in length. - mrhddh

This is a National Park Campground. It is suffering from overall poor maintenance. The best campsites for RV's have been taken by the "Hosts". Every aspect of the CG other than road surface and toilets has been neglected. An obvious victim of Budget Cutting. The toilets are Pit-type and you can smell them from a long way off. Even the Gate Shack looks like it has seen better days. I went to this CG 20 years ago and it had a well maintained look. During the Summer, the Staff would even show movies with an environmental theme. Unless you have a Tent Trailer, Tent, or small Van there are probably no more than 5-6 sites that will accommodate an RV over 14'. The area is beautiful and it is a shame that the Campground doesn't match. - amlevin

This campground is in a beautiful setting, large mature trees, hilly terrain with sites terraced into the hills. Many of the sites are hard to get into, we were lucky and our pull through was easy, but was right on top of our neighbor, 4 feet between slides. Road and sites are gravel and not real level. Wi-Fi was weak and the cable had fair reception. - Traveler II
Sep 2015 - $58.00
We called to make reservations nearly a month ahead of time. We were told we couldn't reserve a specific site, but we would get a site meeting our requirements. When we arrived we were told that no pull-through sites were available. When we mentioned that several sites were empty, she said they were reserved. Total disconnect here--we were told we couldn't reserve and yet...
We finally gave up arguing and backed into the site they gave us. Too many trees for satellite, WiFi was very slow, cable was good. Site had enough room to set up chairs outside and put out the awning.
Park personnel did a very good job of cleaning up after guests left, and maintaining the grounds.
We stayed for 10 days, as we had our son flying in, and we wanted to see all the sites in Seattle. We parked in Bremerton, and took the ferry across to Seattle where we picked up transportation to the sites.
Gig Harbor is not a resort by any means, but a decent park.
We found the add-ons for pets and an extra person excessive, and we will not use this park again. - The Sauntering Sampsons

Terraced hillside sites, some better than others some easy access, others more difficult. Very little area that is safe to hook or unhook your toad. Once in place however, a very pretty park with lots of trees. Few sites satellite friendly but they have good cable

Nice location, gravel surface, sites not too spacious but we had no one on either side of us for the 3 nights we stayed there.

This campground is located approx. 8 miles NW of Cle Elum on hwy 903. It is very shaded and lush, with sunlight filtering in through the trees. We found it to be very quiet and well maintained with just a few people there. Water and garbage service is provided. The sites were long enough to be able to get our 35' rv and we t-boned our car across the front of the site. Cle Elum lake is nearby where there is a boat launch and also picnic tables. The only problem was the lake was a good distance away from the campground and the picnic sites as well. Take mosquito repellent, they were hungry! - jannie5

Rate shown was for a weekly rate. Great park with good utilities and cell & satellite reception. Sites are unlevel front to back so bring lots of blocks. Easy access to the city and Mt. Rainier.

Parking lot sites, but with incredible view of Mt. Rainier. Close to the National Park, about 45 minutes. Lots of long term residents, but friendly. Highlights are the lovely mowed walking paths through the 10 acre woods in the back of the site, not to mention the delicious blackberries, which we were encouraged to pick. We would stay there again...but probably on a long term basis. - Tonita
Jul 2013 - $28.00
They have paved entrance roads. The left turn off the highway at the top of the hill is dangerous and need to be careful. The view of Mt. Rainier is great. The staff is friendly and with permission you can wash your rig. This rate is for a week stay. The sites are level and all are back-ins and some of them are tight. The sewer is located at the rear of the site so you may need an extension. This is the second time we stayed here and would stay again. - Al and Anne-Marie

We stayed here after moving out of our house due to military orders. One of the quietest parks I have ever been too. And talk about green! The park is for DoD ID cards only. Located close to the runway of McChord AFB. You would think plane noise would be a problem but it wasn't. We stayed on site 37. Ample room for parking. The site itself was pretty level but if you have to set up in the hours of darkness, like I did, bring a headlamp because it is DARK! There is a large playground for kids and plenty of trails and low traffic roads. A running trail goes the entire length of the runway and into the base itself. Burger King and post shopping facilities are under 5 minutes away via car. The office staff are extremely friendly. There is WiFi available but we used my Verizon phone as a hotspot and had ample access. There is a clubhouse available as well as a large pavilion for rental. This would be an excellent place to stay if you wanted a base camp for exploring the Puget Sound area. For the money you can't beat it. Overall this a very nice campground and I would definitely stay here again. - Jim in WA

This park is great if you like golfing. It is right on the 18 hole golf course. The sites are gravel and sloped down in front. A large MH will need wood ,blocks under the front tires to get level on most sites. Hook up in rear needs a long power line. - Fred M
Jul 2013 - $30.00
Tiny park adjacent to a golf club. Not suitable for big rigs as the turns are too tight, the roads are too narrow, and the tree limbs are too low. Big rigs would be fine in sites located at front of golf club but not in the back. Okay for an overnight stay. Great place to stay if you golf. Will not camp here again because it was too tight. - lmg
Aug 2012 - $30.00
Very quiet park, no activity at night. Wi-Fi is barely usable from a few sites. Don't expect to get it from your RV, you have to go to the golf clubhouse. As mentioned all hookups are at rear of site so long hoses and cables may be required. If you golf it's a great place to visit. If you don't it's still good. We didn't play but the park was a good base to explore the area. - glenthompson

First of all, the reservation system is flawed. When I checked there were only 2 RV sites available. I booked one and upon arrival we found over 10 available. You should try and check with the park and not rely on the reservation system. It is a nice state park with no 50 amp, no Wi-Fi, no TV [even over the air], no sewer or dump. They say that they are working on the dump, but it doesn't look like it. Sites 17-18 (not reservable) are the only shaded sites and they are reluctant to rent 18 as they call it an overrun site even though it is the best site in the park. The other sites with electric are in the sun and offer no privacy. Rigs of 40' will need to be careful of the driveway and approach to most sites due to lack of turn radius. The park is kid friendly and caters a lot to the Scouts, whom sometimes get a little noisy. The rocky beach is approx 200 yds from the camping sites. The park is nicely kept and the staff is very helpful. @ $29/nite its overpriced for what you get. - yachtjockey

Wow! A beautiful location. The park is set in a wooded area, at walking distance of a beach on the Hood Canal where kids and adults were bathing. I recommend this park for the variety of activities. It's also kept clean. There are no dump stations handy, no sewer either. - eilatan

Washington should be very proud of it's state parks, and this is one they should be particularly proud of. Aside from the incredibly beautiful natural surroundings, it is managed by very helpful and friendly rangers and camp hosts that were gracious and anxious to help any way they could. The rest rooms and showers were immaculate. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would not hesitate to recommend this park to anyone. Like all state parks, you must be able to live without cable TV and WiFi, and there are no sewer hookups, but the natural beauty and tranquility remind you what camping is supposed to be all about. A wonderful experience. - rollingstone

Sites are un-numbered, scattered about a field. You are close to a road, but it is quiet. The place is crawling with rabbits (which have escaped during previous fairs, apparently), so your pets will probably love it. Port-a-potties are provided for your convenience. - hikinghack

Camping is in a large grassy field near the arena. Weekends and evenings you share the area with the horses / riders and their rigs as they come for practice or riding events. Other than that, it's a very quiet campground, probably the cheapest on Whidbey Island. Has suited our purposes well for a place to hang out before and after their annual art show. Nothing special about the campground itself, space between rigs is very dependent on how people choose to park. We had a nice large site for 7 out of our 10 days and for 3 days had a motorhome that pulled in 5 feet behind us and blocked our limited view of Useless Bay. The fairgrounds are populated by bunnies, a past 4H program that went awry. Great entertainment for pets that travel with you as they watch all the bunny antics. - DRFink

Awesome! Right at the foot of Emmons Glacier and well worth the drive. The 'D' loop has the best views but the least shade. As it was hot, I took the shady 'B' loop. No cell service, no hookups, no sewer dump but I will definitely return to this park! - mockturtle

The rate was Golden Age (1/2 price) rate. Toilets are flush but there are no showers. This is one of those jewels of the old Park Service campground network. It is situated right at the foot of towering Mt Rainier and there is a two mile trail to the overlook of Emmons Glacier Terminus, the largest glacier in the lower 48 states. We were in a 17-footer and will camp here again. - geysergazer

An excellent CG in a NP. Quiet and serene with several hiking trails that start from the park. Sites in B and C loops are pretty steep, but some in A and D loops are fine. Only a few pull-throughs, but we found a back-in that fit our 31' coach. The sign states a maximum of 27', but we found several that would work, including two right on the White River. We hope to return in the not-too-distant future. - Red Wolf Deux

Johnny Creek is a beautiful National Forest Service campground located about 12 miles from the Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth. This campground is situated at the confluence of Johnny and Icicle Creeks and is split into two areas, Lower Johnny and Upper Johnny. Both areas are nice, but Lower Johnny is the best because many of the sites give you views and direct access to Icicle Creek. The sites are spacious, quite private, peaceful and beautiful. There are no fancy amenities here, just vault toilets, a picnic table, a fire ring and the great outdoors. This campground appeals mostly to tents and those with camper vans, truck campers, pop-up trailers, small travel trailers or small motorhomes, although motorhomes in the 30' range should have no problem fitting into some sites. Access roads and sites are paved. Drinking water is available but there are no hook-ups or dump station. Come prepared to be self contained and laid back! All of the NFS campgrounds along Icicle River Road are popular in the summer. Get there early to nab a spot on the weekends. Our rate reflects the fact that we have a Federal Senior Pass and get 50% off the regular rate. Fees for Lower Johnny are two dollars more than for Upper Johnny. We would definitely stay here again. - BruceandKathyWA

The word "resort" is not what I would call it. We were packed in like sardines in the few spots that the permanent residents weren't in. The cable had to have a box from the office to work and the 30 amp electricity went in and out frequently. The dock at the lake with the chairs and swings was refreshing and peaceful. The park was quiet at night, but other than the lake and the peacefulness, I would not stay here again. - Marilynintexas
May 2010 - $25.00
We had our doubts about staying due to the vast majority of sites being occupied by seasonals. There are only a few sites for transients but they are together, separated from the seasonals. As a whole the park is neat & tidy. Most go there for the fishing. The park has its own dock & boats to rent. Transient sites are very narrow. They are FHU. Not all have picnic tables. All have a fire contraption. The Wi-Fi, no extra charge, works well. Cable is very basic but at no extra charge either. Staff are friendly however the fellow who served us in the office is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. - Veebyes

I will start with the positives: not too far off I-5, our pull thru was large enough to accommodate our 36' RV with small toad, plenty of trees around for shade, most sites have privacy. Check-in was very easy, there is a lake with beach & boat launch, laundry facility with TV inside that I have not used. Sites are paved as is the road, there are several recycle bins and garbage bins throughout the campground. It appears that the base is divided and to go to the BX, Comm., movies etc. you leave the north side, go under I-5 to another security point & show your military id's. A little different. Now my only beef is the so called CATV, for us and other campers it is non existent. The service is through Comcast and if you have an older TV you must use a special box to bring in the cable. 2 boxes later nothing. We have a small flat screen TV that is 3 years old and we could not bring in any channels. Spouse took box back to office and was told it was Comcast issue. Asked a few other campers and they also had the same issue. So, either get Comcast out to fix it or drop it from what you have to offer. We also put our antenna up and got 16 channels with Fox being the only known station. - petpeople

We had reserved a 50 amp full hookup waterfront site 90 days before our stay and put a deposit down. When we arrived, we were given a 30 amp site adjacent to the busy main road that barely fit our 40' motorhome. The staff said whoever took our reservation probably just wanted to give us a site, any site, and wasn't paying attention to our request. Right! Other nearby campgrounds were booked because of the golf tournament in Chambers Bay. We stayed a week. Our site was overgrown with knee high weeds and dry grass. Previous campers had left trash (xmas lights, confetti, plastic cups and lids, dead flowers, kitty litter, dog poop, cigarette butts) all over the site. We had to rake. It was disgustingly dirty. The campground does not trim trees away from the roadway either, so our motorhome could not avoid hitting 3 branches on the way in and out. They do not enforce their own rules and turn a blind eye to unleashed dogs and multiple vehicles in their sites. The site next to us had two trucks, a boat and a motorcycle parked along with their 5th wheel. Lanes are paved and narrow, sites are paved requiring minimal leveling. Wi-Fi is only strong in or near the common rooms. Elsewhere it's nonexistent. No cable and with the trees, satellite reception isn't good. The only good things about this park were the price and proximity to Seattle and Tacoma. They take reservations but you can never be sure you'll end up getting what you actually reserved. Won't return. - Flippitti

This is an older RV park with small sites. There are no pull through sites. You will have to back in. It is conveniently located just off I-5 and gives good access to many north Seattle attractions. It is not a quiet and peaceful location but is better than the other Everett RV parks. Most of the occupants are full time or long term but they are required to keep up their sites. The park has one small laundry and bathroom facility. No real common or grass areas but it does have some trees and shrubs. The Wi-Fi was not usable. The management is very friendly and attentive. - cloud9

This campground is located close to an interstate, a busy highway and a railroad. It is very noisy. The hookups are located in the back between two sites - hard to reach.

Office couple nice, but need more experience. Spaces short and tight. Connections in our space were way behind, 50 feet of water hose. We could not reach the sewer. It would have taken 40 feet of hose. An option we didn't know about is the Angel of the Winds Casino at exit 210, which has RV parking with electric for $15 a night. They have water to fill your tank and a dump. There are not many spaces, but they take reservations. - paxton

Penrose Point is a beautiful state park with no hookups. Water spigots are available, and the dump station has potable water. The campground is heavily forested, which grants significant privacy for most campsites. Some of the turns are quite tight and branches can be low, so really big rigs may have a tough time navigating to their site. But, my 25' trailer and 20' truck were fine. The sites are moderately level. Bring some blocks. You will need them. Verizon service was good. Due to the many tall trees, satellite TV service is nearly impossible, and broadcast TV is limited to a few local religious channels. But don't spend your time watching TV! Get out and see the beauty of nature in the Pacific NW. There is no playground for the little ones, but a big grassy day use area is available with a smooth gravel beach which is very shallow and perfect for wading. This is an ideal park for kayaking. The hiking trails are extensive and lovely. This park is fairly remote, yet only 2 hours from downtown Seattle, 0nly 1 hour from Tacoma. A big grocery and several small restaurants are located about 20-25 minutes north of the park. The sites are gravel and dirt, with lots of moss mixed in. Campfire rings and picnic tables are at each site. Though I didn't see every campsite, I recommend avoiding site 50 - the trail to the bathrooms literally goes through the site. I camped in site 16 - a moderately sized pull-through. I was at Penrose on Labor Day weekend. My fellow campers were okay. On one side, two families were loud talkers, but generally fine. On the other side, two families that were quiet and hardly noticeable other than the occasional soft notes of strumming on guitar strings. Pretty typical for a state park on a holiday weekend. Kids on bikes were everywhere. Lots of dogs too. I would happily return to Penrose Point. - SeaTeacher

We are in site 3 which has full hookups. Most sites don't' have 50 amps but this one does. Only gave it a 7 because the sites 1-5 are short. Our 35 ft motorhome fit with our car, but no spare room as the sites are 45 feet long. Really had to use blocks to raise rear of motorhome as these sites are not level. Only our site 3 was able to get our Direct TV. Not a lot of room to maneuver. I understand park fills up in summer but I wouldn't stay here again. - Bluebird Bob

We camped in late August just before school started. This campground was completely full with a ton of loud, rowdy kids that needed to scream and yell late into the night.

Stayed here for an overnight when all 3 travel stops we planned to go to were full. Called at 6pm and they had space available.
Check-in process a bit confusing, if arriving after hours (?) you drive into the campground and go to cabin #6 (the owner's cabin) and they'll set you up from there. $22 gets you water and electric, no fuss no muss. Laundry and shower house are available, but we never used them. Hookups were easy and site was level. There is minimal road noise from State Rd 10, but we did hear a train a few times at night (nothing after we went to bed). Owner has said that there are a few sites saying that this campground has closed, but it's definitely open for business.
Campground appears to be mostly permanent residents, but never felt uneasy while walking around. This is a great option given the average cost in the area for a site ($35+) and the popularity (read: zero available spots) of truck stops in the area. We would stay here again for sure. - LanderWust

This is a small park with few sites suitable for big rigs, and although the interior road is a bit tight, with care you can maneuver into one of the two or three long grass and gravel pull-thrus. Lots of trees, but a fairly clear shot for the satellite, with fair Verizon cell and data reception. The free cable TV was extensive and clear. Fairly quiet, with a few long term RVs and friendly owners/hosts and a large store. Considering that there are no sewer hookups or WiFi, the nightly rate is at the top end of what we would expect for a park with few amenities. Anyone with a rig over 32' should probably call ahead for reservations since the larger sites are few. - Meanderman

Gate locked when we arrived at 8 and was met by an obnoxious host. He was very grumpy and abrasive demanded cash only and charged us extra for not having a reservation even though there were at least ten empty spots even upon us leaving the next day. The park setting was great, could use some maintenance but the manager left a bad taste so we were unable to enjoy the place and left asap. Other RV Guests were friendly however and made comments about the managers attitude. Nice place but I would wait until he is replaced before making the effort to visit here. - User3199

Sadly neglected little park on a nice little lake. Sites are tight. 18" tall weeds surrounding the sewer/water and electrical made it difficult to access. No picnic tables at sites. No parking of tow vehicle at site. No cable although they are expecting to get cable in the near future. Good Wi-Fi access. Gravel with very small concrete 'patios'. Tiny little area for wading in lake. Not kid friendly at all. Lots of permanents. The one next to us was about 30 yrs old! Nice laundry area. Not our first choice by any stretch of the imagination but limited choices in the area. - shovelguy

First impression was this campground needed some work. The site was a little difficult to get into - we had a back-in spot but prefer a pull-through. The pull-throughs were being updated for a reason that become obvious - an Airstream convention was held over the weekend. The lake was awesome. Moved the motorhome a couple of feet after a couple of days just to get a better view! The lake was great for swimming. Staff was very friendly. The dog run was taken down. Don't know if they are rebuilding, but there is plenty of places to take pets. There was some other construction going on as well. Lake Goodwin is beautiful - we'll be back! - AZJeeper

This is an outstanding campground. There are no utilities in the campsites, but there is potable water and a RV dump station. The camp is located on the north end of the beautiful Hood Canal. During clear weather, the rocky beach has a spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains. The campsites vary from private to very private. Our site was totally private and deep in the lush dappled sunlight of cedar and fir trees. There are two good playgrounds for kids. Many sites are small and somewhat uneven, but they work for small and moderate RVs. Pull-through sites would fit all but the largest bus type RVs. We were there on Memorial Day weekend, and the campground was full. Fellow campers were generally quiet, and all noise was done by 10 PM. I would happily return. - SeaTeacher

This was our maiden voyage with our RV so we only stayed one night. It is a simple, clean small RV in the middle of simple, clean Port Ludlow. We had a pull through and although they are easy to navigate, they were not very wide. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice park. - scruggsfamilyRV

We read the reviews, but after calling and talking to the manager, we decided to go. They have 30 amp steady power, Good water pressure, and Threaded drain connections. No Cable, Free TV is available, some sites could get up to 10 channels, WIFI was really good compared to other parks we have stayed at, Good cell service. This park can fit most RVs, or motorhomes. Connections are all in one place, gravel pads are level, sites are wide enough for slides and awnings, we have 4 slides. The RVer's were quiet, park workers were friendly and helpful, place was kept up, and clean. There are a few long stays, the sites were clean. - GRBR

This was a very woodsy, quiet, small park. I changed the "family friendly" to no just because of no "play" areas for kids. This all depends on your own family of course, ages of kids, etc. There is a trail to Ludlow Falls which was a wonderful walk through dense greenery. We stayed a week at about $18/night, much less than I was quoted.WiFi very good, didn't try TV reception. We saw No One on the trail, had the showers to ourselves mostly, and it was extremely quiet. And Dark, I might add....have flashlights handy! I missed having laundry but found one in nearby town so didn't matter much. We would definitely return. - Carol P

I would give Jim Creek a 10+ if the WiFi had worked, but we were here for a week and it never worked even at the office. They said the weather had something to do with it, which must mean "a cloud" since we had 3 glorious days. Also, we were not able to get TMobile/AT&T cell to give us more than Emergency Service only, but I understand that Verizon does work. Saying that, Jim Creek is a must do. Sites are wide and deep and level, with electricity and water. (Dump is available on the way out.) Bathrooms are handicapped, but the toilet is metal and will take your breath away in cold weather. Each room has a hot and free shower. Also there is a laundry available for a buck. Staff is wonderful, helpful and lots of fun. Small museum tells the story of the base. Kids have lots to do: playgrounds, games, fields, bike rentals. Pets also have runs. Don't have an RV, lots of wonderful tent sites and cabins with wood burning stoves and porch swings are all over the base. Trails to hike. The lake is about 5 miles away, by trail or road. (RVs and Motorcycles are not allowed on the road as it is narrow.) Once your at the lake, kayaks and paddle boats are available. Make sure you know where you are going as there are no signs pointing the way. After the Dead End sign, you will come to the gate which is manned 24 hours a day. It is open all year long. - Desertthorn

Let's see what I can say that is bad about this place. Wi-Fi sucked. It was up and down (mostly down) the entire time. That's pretty much it except hat and there is no place to swim or wade. This is, without a doubt, the cleanest, best maintained military recreation campground I have ever seen or been in. They have RV camping, tent camping, cabins (from no bedrooms on up), and a lodge. There is dog walk areas, hiking trails, and recreational equipment to rent (boats, bikes, etc, etc, etc). Don't come here expecting a night-life. There is almost no cell-phone service and the only TV is off a satellite. Mid-week (when we were there) it is quiet, quiet, quiet. Weekends it can be busy: more-so, if the Sea-Scouts are there. You can check out the new national web-site for the site reservation number. http://get.dodlodging.net/. - wetterwashington

I am an active duty Soldier and while camping at K&M Beach-wood last year we meet a retired Navy guy who highly recommended this campground. It took almost a year but we finally got around to it and we are glad we did. First off make sure and check the campgrounds website for specific criteria as this is a DOD facility and not everyone can enter but if you make the cut I highly recommend this site. The drive to the front gate was a little "scary" as there are no signs whatsoever directing you to this location. It is a site which allows worldwide communication with the Naval Fleet and thus is well advertised. But as you trek down the well maintained 2 lane road it comes to an abrupt halt at the front gate. But no fear, it is manned 24/7 and as we approached the gate opened up. We checked in with the full time armed security who directed us to the MWR (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation) office where I checked in. The front desk staff are just too nice and very professional and helpful. We stayed in site 11. All the RV sites have a large cement pad to park on. But as we found out the pads are not level and slope. No problems. Some leveling pads and we were good. The sites have a type of water hook up I have never seen before. You attach your hose, and pull the lever up and in the process pull down a round bypass switch when then diverts water into the hose. Strange. Well ours was sort of broke and it took some wet sleeves and pair of needle noses to make it work but the camp host was Johnny on the Spot and assisted me and made sure maintenance was made aware. The sites are just perfect with enough trees to provide cover from the rain and spaced apart far enough to ensure privacy. As with all military MWR sites they offer all sorts of outdoor equipment for rent form horse shoes to mountain bikes. Activities were planned throughout the weekend including an ice cream social and hay ride. All the facilities are well maintained. To top it all off, since the site use to have an Officers Club, they have a nice bar in the top of the check in office and serve all sorts of beers and mix drinks at a fraction of what you pay in the civilian world. We didn't take advantage since we had our kiddos but looked to be a very nice gig. The other main draw is Twin Lakes. Following a somewhat narrow, semi-improved, curvy road up and down the mountains, you end up at a picturesque lake. No swimming but small boats are available for rent as well as entire fishing sets and you can buy a license. So much outdoor stuff to do! We will definitely come back again. Highly recommend to get reservations as early as possible. We booked for the Memorial Day weekend about three months prior. A+++ Good job Navy! - Jim in WA

Another campground that wants to be a resort! Spaces are pretty tight for those with big rigs (motor homes or travel trailers) in spite of the pull-thru ability in several. Small children were playing on interior roads on scooters and bicycles before 7 AM. So much for solitude and quiet for campers. Permanent and long term residents spread throughout the park, not confined to a particular area. Sites are on grass (not a great feature considering the annual rainfall in the area), and water faucets are at ground level which makes it difficult to hook up. Experienced "vandalism" twice in 18 hours. While away from the site someone opened the electricity box cover and removed pulled my cord out of the receptacle and laid the cord on the ground. Neighbors claimed innocence and no knowledge. Entry gate locked at 10 PM and a $5 deposit is required for a card to be able to open it after hours. They're "pet friendly," but keep that pet on a leash! - grandflic

Started out OK but the place is a zoo. kids and dogs running loose. Our dog was attacked by one of the residents dogs. Reported to office, nothing done or no one even asked about dog. No basic RV park etiquette honored, people walked through site. My impression was this is a homeless camp, but that would disrespect the homeless. - tpaine

This is a very family oriented park. We come here with our son and his family of 5 kids. There is something for all of them to keep busy, lake swimming and fishing on one of two docks and playing in the sand for the little ones as well as lake wading. We sail our small boat and there is a dock to tie it up that's provided free. We always get lakefront and side by side sites so we can be door to door with them. There are some weekends when the crowd can be rowdy, but that's the case in many places. The folks that run the resort are very friendly and willing to accommodate you anyway they can. There is a well stocked store/gas station at the entrance. The playground has been updated from the rusty swing set mentioned in the '07 review and now they have true playground equipment as well as volleyball and tether ball. The sites are tight, especially lakefront but we have 3 slides and are 42' long and it always works for us. There is also lots of grassy area in front of the lakefront sites for chairs, picnic tables, etc. We think it's a great place. - grammiejan

Small park on Puget Sound Waterfront site. No waterfront campsites. One restroom for the park. Water at spigots in 3-4 locations around park. Electric connections are located such that at back-in sites electric is on the left, while pull through sites electric is on the right. This is the reverse of all campgrounds we have ever been to. If you select this park, bring very long extra extension cords. Excellent park for tents. Some Yurts are available. Park ranger service is inattentive due to budget cuts. Camp host was not visibly present. - jake blake

Very nice county park. The rangers patrol regularly and make sure everything is as it should be. The sites are very spacious and there are a lot of trees to provide shade. The water is a short but rigorous hike downhill where there is a very nice park for walking the dog or sitting by the shore. The beach is rocky. Overall we enjoyed this campground very much. - gary855

We had space T24 on the beach loop - 30 amp, water, and sewer. The temperature soared to 92 degrees the first day, but our AC worked fine on 30 amps (we're a 50 amp unit). The pull-through sites could be a little longer for today's rigs, but if everyone parks properly, things seem to fit okay. Friendly staff. - NotSoBadBob

Nice scenery. Some of the pull-throughs are a little sharp for the bigger rigs, but most are okay. We arrived about 1/2 hour before check-in time and had no trouble getting right in. Ranger and staff were pleasant. We stayed in the Beach Loop at a pull-through site with 50 amp, water, and sewer. - NotSoBadBob

The location of Belfair is great for visiting the Seattle area. The park itself is a wonderful park, and is well maintained. Very laid back, and I was impressed to see the volunteer workers cleaning campsites as soon as a camper left, prior to new arrivals. They do enforce the no check in before 2:30p, which was not a big deal. We are in a 40' MH /c 3 slides, and the spaces are limited for a rig our size, but there are several to choose from. If you don't need services, there are great sites without hookups that would easily fit our rig. The ferry terminal was a 30 minute drive, and we got to Seattle in 1 hr, shopped, and got back without any traffic hassle. Don't attempt to take your MH to the ferry terminal, parking is very limited. We left ours after checkout in the day use area and went on the ferry for the day. - red baron
