34 Parks near Stanwood, Washington
Aug 2010 - $28.00
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

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

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 a boating venue, but not very busy or noisy (stayed here mid-week on a Monday/Tuesday). The full hook-up sites with sewer are in an open area, no trees. The hookup sites with electrical and water only have trees, but low density and only semi-private. I showed up as a walk-in with no reservation but was able to get a site.
Cell reception was very good (Sprint).
However, I had an issue with power at one site. I use a surge protector (Surgeguard Model 34730). The first site I was assigned was #45. The surge protector ran its tests for the maximum 128 seconds and refused to connect. I then plugged in without the surge protector, had power for a bit, and then the power switched off. I have a 30 amp rig, but regularly connect at home to a 15 amp outlet and the surge protector has no problems. The park had had been full the previous weekend and had no power complaints, but the ranger still allowed me to try a different site. Site #26 had a newer circuit box, and might be part of a different main system, so I tried that. This time, the connection "passed" the surge protector test stage. Power readouts were variable. Within the first few minutes, the power readout ranged from 114v at 7 amps, to 116v at 16 amps. It could be that my surge protector is starting to fail, but that wouldn't explain why the power shut off at site #45 when I connected without the surge protector.
Despite the power concern, I would stay here again. The area was very clean and generally quiet (the nearest road is not busy). When staying near Seattle I need to have good cell service, so the quality of the cell signal outweighs a minor power concern. - OlderGoat

Park has just completed new restroom/shower facility with disability units. New gravel in most sites on Loop 2. Full hookup section (premium sites) is okay, but needs renovation. Pleasant woodsy atmosphere. Will stay here again. - NiekaKnitter

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 stayed in one of the non electric sites which are back-ins against a fence. The four electric sites back-in to the casino near an entrance. Our site was long enough for the truck and 38' fifth wheel without unhitching but we needed to park the jeep in the parking lot. We were in site 10 which was fairly level, 14 and 15 appeared to have a side to side slope. Site 11 had a light pole in the roadway in front which could make for a challenging back in unless you are small. Security made frequent rounds during our stay and verified that we had our parking sticker acquired at check in. It was a Saturday night and the parking lot in front of us was pretty active until the wee hours.
Check in is at the gas station and we were told there was water and a dump but did not see these. There was a large nearly empty parking lot on the gas station side of the casino with several rv's but we were told they would be made to leave at 10PM.
It was a good overnight stop and we would not hesitate to use it again. - PBuds

The casino seems to be in the process of upgrading/changing its RV program. What used to be a unique, inexpensive overnight area is on the path to becoming more expensive and less unique. They now charge $15 for dry camping and raised the price for power hookups from $15 to $25. No sewer/water hookups. Good security (regular patrols) For a dump station I used the nearby rest area on I-5.
The RV parking area has been moved from a row near the gas station to the parking lot on the far side of the casino. There are now only four sites with electricity, but from the numbering on the power boxes it looks like they might add 20 more spots with power. They also handed me a simple survey, asking about amenities and improvements. The new area is more level, but a little bit noisy (next to the casino's HVAC). Overall, still an OK value and easy freeway access. Advance registration highly recommended if you need/want electrical. - OlderGoat

Camped for one night , As has been posted $25 for power, $15 dry camp.
This is a striped asphalt parking lot
I had a power site, 30 amp was good and steady, If you can reserve sites 1 or 2 as 3 and 4 are not level (I had to block the front up 5" to get near level)
We will return as this beats anything that the Arlington area has to offer. - Saddlesore

I have never had such a poor experience with any management company in all my 38 years. False advertisement, Mismanagement, discrimination, and extremely poor communication. The parks are not easy to navigate with a big rig. Not pet friendly. We were completing an application and found they didn't have sites. This was said in passing and glossed over. The rates advertised are for one of the 5 parks so the website information is inaccurate. The pricing is listed incorrectly - it states nowhere that the pricing is for only one particular park. The park we were applying for is in terrible shape- it was close to a military facility when my husband works. I have yet to receive a call back. The staff will only allow you to speak with the 2 people in the office and refuse to give any name or contact options to their boss. Very very very poor customer service. You couldn't pay me to stay. The park had trailers with busted windows etc. heaven help you if you have a small dog on the heavier side. Like.... a chunky dachshund. The pet policy is 20lbs or under however the manager had a problem with 20lbs bc really- they mean no heavier than 19. - CrookedHalo

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. The people were very friendly. We didn't use the facilities and stayed there for one night in our 31' fifth-wheel. Wouldn't come again. - TheSchweitzers

Stayed here due to a lack of any other options on So. Whidbey. There are no definitive parking guidelines, just primitive pedestals, which allows people to park anywhere. The field where you park is covered with rabbit pellets, a function of the mass of loose rabbits on the grounds. A 4H function brought people in that created a sardine parking situation, but worse, some people brought their horses into the RV parking area next to the RVs and proceeded to groom their horses in the area with the RVs. Health Dept should visit this site, but it's owned by the county. - John R

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

Their credit card machine denied two of my cards. Had to use cash. My bank reported that their machined was in error. Never had any other problems heading south.
This park is mostly long termers so you need to reserve a space ahead of time. Great for an overnight stop, but you face Seattle traffic if heading South in the morning ie Mt. V to Renton 2hrs. - Tonyl

Small park with many seasonal and permanent residents but everything is kept very neat and tidy. Manager makes sure all rules are followed. Sites are close but okay. Easy for a big rig to get in and out. Conveniently located to Anacortes, Burlington, North Cascades National Park. No walking areas except the road around the park. Small fenced dog area. Wifi worked well. Cannot reserve a particular site and pull-thrus are not guaranteed, but we were lucky to get a very easy-to-access pull-thru. Would stay again. - all4pets

The park is mostly seasonal, but well kept. We return time and again on shopping trips or when passing through. Available sites are few and gravel, but most all pull through and level. Away from the I5, but you should like trains. Other than that, quiet and friendly. A nice, secluded spot. - BMonk

Small and quiet campground. Has an indoor pool. Sites are all back in on blacktop with lawn between sites. We stay her often. - rolling homeless
Jul 2014 - $1.00
This has gone downhill over the years. 1/2 of the sites are now unusable for all but the very smallest of RVs. They don't cut back on the shrubs/trees and roots have heaved on a lot of the sites so you can't back in. We will Not be coming back again. - PugetSound

Rate was $0 which reflects ROD price. Nice quiet park near the marina, river, and quaint town of LaConner and other nearby attractions. We enjoyed sightseeing during our week here. The downside were frequently fly-overs by NAS Whidbey Island and the extremely tight RV spaces. Probably won't stay here again. - hr08
