Located in a large farming valley just west of Mt Baker. Took a lovely afternoon car ride up to the north side of Mt Baker: ends at 5000' with rest of the 10000' Mt and surrounding peaks to view.
Very helpful manager with lots of info. Wifi only near office. Nicest spot was patio table just outside the office in the shade of the firs. Many surrounding fields of corn; occasional whiff of dairy farm; trains run only in day time.
Used the RV park as my hub to take car north over ferry to Vancouver island to explore, then back a day before start of trip to Jasper. - Charlif

Park has very few sites available for travelers. Most sites taken up by "permanent campers." Appears that only the visiting campers abide by the pet rules, keeping their dogs on a leash, and cleaning up after them. We had to clean our site of dog waste from big dogs before we could allow our dog out of the RV! No one was available at the office to collect or answer questions. Had to fill out our own pay form (no receipt) and use a drop box. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone. - drrv

The best thing about this park was it's relation to the Canada border. We stayed here to make it convenient to go back and forth to Canada, and it worked for that. There is also a nice city sports park that connects to it that is well maintained and a good place to walk your pets. It's a good thing, too, because many of the dogs that belong to the many permanent residents are pits or pit mixes and not too friendly. The sites are gravel and grass, and you are mixed in with the permanent residents. I have never seen so much duct tape and blue tarps in one campground. We stayed for two days, and twice some of the permanent residents got into fist fights/ yelling/ cursing matches. It never felt safe or secure, and we never did see any management. One of the ram shackle trailers had a manager sign on it, but no one ever came around. You register with an envelope and drop it in a slot. And to top it off, the park is also surrounded by large lots of dairy cows. So the aroma of cow manure is a constant companion. I will not stay here again. - SargeW

We stayed at this campground because it was the only one open in this area. All the forest campgrounds were closed. It is a one hour drive from here to Artist Point in Mt. Baker National Park which was our destination for hiking. The day we arrived we were the only people here. Park office was only open on weekends. The sites were back-ins except for two unlevel pull-thrus. Our 35 foot motorhome had issues with narrow roads, and constant tree branches hitting our roof. Some sites were level but many were not. Water and electricity were fine. This campground is made more for camper pick-ups, tents, and smaller Class C and A motorhomes. In the summer the shade would be loved and in the fall night time comes early. The lake is a ways from the camping area but people with boats and fisherman would like it. - The Austins

This is a fairly nice campground among the trees. There are many sites taken by "all summer" campers. Even so, all sites are tidy and some had flowers planted around the RVs. Our site was in the back next to the creek. It was actually a tent site, but worked for our shorter camper. The park is located away from any road noise. There is a small store on site, but it wasn't going to be opened for the season until after we left.
The staff was friendly and helpful, the common areas were clean and nice. WiFi worked OK in the community room.
We stayed here as part of our Thousand Trails membership, so we don't know the regular price per night. - Another brick in the wall

Lindel beach thousand trails is the reason we cancelled our membership with thousand trails. We had people beside us that pushed every rule to the limit and beyond when they partied all night. The night watch was involved in the party and the next day the manager said they appologized so all is well. We ended up the next night having a huge battle with management and the trouble makers stayed and we were told to leave at midnight, down a twisty windy dark road. Over all the spots are one on top of the other and not much privicy. The power is sketchy when everyone has A/C on in the heat of the summer and the WIFI is only available in the clubhouse. We paid to have WIFI at our site once and it simply did not work for us, the signal was to weak. one of the old guys that works there seems to find it acceptable to walk into the ladies washroom, even when young girls are there. This continued even after we complained. Over all we did not find this very family friendly for us with our young girl. - december31

We had reservations and the Ranger said we may have trouble finding a site. Only thing left were tent sites with 15 amp. A camper told us the electric everywhere was suspect. Sites very close together, not an attractive park. Don't waste your time. We left without staying. - spitfirepete

We had a very small gravel sides with a concrete pad and a old picnic table.
They give people with 5th wheel sides, that they have to park the car half in the narrow driveway so it's very difficult to drive in and out of your side.
The pet area is only a lawn which is also used at a parking lot.
The sides are very close together and between the sides are no grass anymore only dirt.
The wifi was so bad I could not even open the Google website, fortunately AT&T provides 2 bars LTE. - Columbus

A big park with lots of sites, a pond, a pool. Park was clean, well-maintained and check-in quick. Tons of amenities: ideal for families and reunions. Average camp-store. Place was packed when we arrived Aug 13th, Saturday. The roads are very narrow, parking ok and there's lots of trees to avoid when parking. Kids were everywhere, especially on the roads: watch out for them while driving. Our site was on a pond that was weed filled and loaded with ducks/geese. The park was noisy and crowded: kind of Washington State's version of a red-neck Riviera. Only stayed the night: glad to be moving on. - Owlet

We generally like KOA sites as we have young children and they like playgrounds and to make friends on a weekend. The kids did well but there were lots of partying people at campsites with loud music whch ruined the time at the site for adults. Whoever decided outdoor speakers on RV's was a good idea had no idea what damage it would do to a community of campers when the minoirty can impose their DJ skills on the majority. At least there were no permanent campers living at the site and aside from dog dirt left unpicked up in the nearby field, it was well manicured. - RV Bell's

This is a park I would choose not to go back to. Sandwiched in with rigs of various makes, sizes, age and condition. Site was to small and we stuck out into the traffic lanes. Stoped here on way to Alaska, but stayed at a much nicer park just a few miles down the road on the way back. - Mar-Bob
Aug 2015 - $30.00
The sites were so crowded that we got totally boxed in. No picnic tables, no room to put out awning, no room for your barbeque. WiFi did not work, water shut off because of sewer problem. Sites are very small not meant for big rigs, sites are dirt and gravel. Very close to Highway 1 so very noisy. This is basically a full services rv storage place. Worst rv park that we have ever stayed in in over forty years of camping. Called a "resort" but a far far cry from a resort. - Applejack

First of all there is a $5.00 "reservation charge" to make the reservation on top of the nightly fee. I reserved for two units and had to pay $5.00 for each unit. There is also a $2.00 per day fee for the Wi-Fi. Also there is a charge per day of $5.00 per pet. It was an okay campground. It was rainy and soggy. Our "pull through" was on grass. Washer and dryers are mega expensive. I don't think we would park here again. - Snooker2

My wife and I stayed at this camp site with our small travel trailer for 5 days and loved it. The site itself was excellent; easy to back the trailer into; very green with trees all around; picnic table; not far from the lake. Cozy spot. We plan on going back. - Lewis C

We stayed in this park on our way through the area. The check in staff was friendly and efficient. Although our site (D-47) was long enough for our 20 foot trailer, it was very difficult to back into. Trees next to the narrow road posed a problem. The site driveway was up hill to the parking pad and I was glad to have 4 wheel drive to back our LIGHT weight trailer into it. Many site back up to the main road and there seemed to be traffic all night long.
On the other had the setting is beautiful and the restrooms were clean. The showers were clean also, but only provided cold water.
If you reserve a site here be sure to get one away from the road. - Another brick in the wall

This review is for the Entrance Bay Campground. The greatest benefit in this Park is the Seniors discount during the off season, and the greatest negative factor is the noise of the power boats on the lake. As Provincial Parks go, this is one of the noisiest parks you will find, but the sites are nice and private. We used this park as a one night stop over, but we will probably go to Sasquatch Provincial park next time through the area even though it is a little further of the Trans Canada Hwy. - Snoet

Most of those 193 sites are seasonal and the pull through sites where we were put were grass that was very un-level. The sites were so tight together that our neighbors sewer was in our sitting area, nice! There was one water hookup post per two sites so you better have a long hose. We were given the evil eye by several of the seasonal campers with one even spitting at me after he gave me a dirty look. Even though they have rules no one was enforcing them;our neighbors were up drinking and carrying on till the wee hours and judging by the noise around us it was a common occurrence. Bottom line we will not stay there again, even though the staff was fine, we'll stay elsewhere, next time we are in Chilliwack. - ashtree

This was a disappointment. We were visiting family with two fifth wheels and they insisted on a reservation cost of $4.00 for each of us for staying a week. If we didn't have to be there, we wouldn't have. It was okay. Have to pay extra for WI-FI and for dogs. Nickel and dime - Snooker2

We were here on Canada Day weekend and there were several hundred people crammed into every nook and cranny. Unless you like multiple huge gatherings of people and non stop noise from dawn to dusk, then this is not the campground for you. The hosts do a good job with the site though. There are a number of seasonal sites that are shoulder to shoulder. Our site was crammed under trees into a fence, and it was so dark we had to use lights to see inside the trailer all day. Also, make sure you have extra long cords etc for power water and sewer, as they are all out near the road. There are a couple of trails to the river, and fishing is available. This might be a more attractive campground on the shoulder season, but just be aware that in summer it is definitely not a peaceful retreat by the river. - Fish dude

We stayed for three nights. The sites are just big enough for 30'RV with slides uncoupled. Not much room for parking it between trailers. Guests have to park at the gate due to limited room for vehicles and there is a cost of $10 per vehicle of visitors. The washrooms and showers were semi clean. The other campers were very friendly and helpful. Overall enjoyed the experience but will look other options next time. - Glenn Nic

Large park, mostly shaded by high trees (lakeside pitches were more open. Efficient but not particularly friendly reception, pitch level with fire pit with full service hookup. Site was closing down for the season so very empty when we got there, but I guess for a holiday site it will be good but the trees make it very gloomy (probably welcome sunshade in high summer!) We only did an overnight here, hence limited review. - PhilbyUK

Very disappointed with this campground, had high hopes based on information from their web page. This campground is combined with seasonal and overnight campers and you can tell who gets the pristine sites. All overnighters including tenters are in the mud, so hope it does not rain. I was excited upon seeing the lake, however stayed away upon finding out there was a chance of "swimmers itch" and you should shower thoroughly after swimming. Way too many rules, more than I have ever encountered in my camping history. There are huge fines should you break the rules. My mistake in choosing this location. It is 1 hour, 30 minutes from Vancouver. So you may want to be closer to the city if you are touring Vancouver. There is absolutely no privacy: you are side by each. When I went to use the toilets at 6AM, I was rudely told that the bathroom was closed due to cleaning. Seems an odd time to clean the bathrooms/showers. - Tanys Sweets

Stayed for apx. 3 weeks. Very convenient location. 15 minutes south to Bellingham, 15 minutes north to Canada USA border. Sites are reasonable size with some sites having a little tree coverage. Mostly grass sites. Staff friendly and helpful. Some long term residents but everything is kept in neat and tidy order. - tree_skier

The park has a pool and playground for kids which we didn't use but it's available. Level sites. Wifi was decent. The rate includes the tax. Proximity to Bellingham and Mt Baker was good. They don't have any information on Bellingham or Mt. Baker, so you have to gather that on your own in town. - Junia

Nice campground. Does use side by side hookups. Most sites are level. Most are pull through. - Vagabonds_41

We had one of the few pull-through sites in this park. It was a paved level site with a patio and table. The utilities worked well as did the Wi-Fi and cable. It was easy to get to and fairly easy to get around in the park even with our 40' motorhome. We did see a couple of people struggle to get into their back-in site because of all the vehicles parked in the road. The host is friendly as were our neighbors. We would stay here again. - dandg

Good spot for an overnight stop before crossing the border into the US at the Alderbrook crossing. Easy in/out off highway 13. Manager and staff were very friendly and thorough. Showed us to our site and even offered to help with hook-ups. Water connection was underground to protect from freezing. We had a back-in because there are only a very few pull-throughs - if you can call them that. They require a very tight turn to get out. It is best to back out! A tidy park. Spaces are a bit tight, but we managed. We didn't use the facilities, and our main frustration was the totally unreliable Wi-Fi. It constantly disconnected, going from strength 4 to zero, then reconnected for no apparent reason. - wfgk

Fair paved park roads. Some sites had crumbling pavement, although some others had been repaved. Our site was a good paved back-in, but not very level. All utilities worked, but power pedestal was low to the ground. Good cable TV. Wi-Fi had a strong signal, but very little bandwidth for anything other than e-mail and browsing. Friendly office staff. I would return to this park as it is in a good location for visiting our relatives and has good value. - Onemoretrail
