Great place to stay..location and access to Hwy 20. (great price on fuel at Chevron in front of Casino) Small park but easy to navigate, and view of the bay. Great internet/tv, and FHU. The Casino is about 500 ft from the RV area...easy walk- and you can use the restrooms in the casino. The back-ins have a better view of the bay..the pull through sites have your rig looking at the casino. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Casino is beautiful (I don't gamble), but the restaurants (5-priced right) are very good! They keep grass trimmed, there is a trail around area, if you bike...there's a great bike trail near by that goes into Anacortes.

Nice park, active casino, although they do not offer a shuttle service from the RV Park to the casino. A train goes by periodically in the back of the lot, but it's doable. Easy access off Hwy 20. Have stayed here before and would stay again. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We haven't been here in 10 years. Even if you are not interested in the casino, this is a good park if all you need is FHU, cable TV, and decent Wi-Fi. Out site was satellite friendly so we didn't bother with the cable. I saw no recycling. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

After spending the night in a Wallmart parking lot, we spent a long day driving from 400 miles La Grande Or to Mount Vernon and this was a great weeks stay here. The place is just off highway 5 on state route 20, with good cell coverage and the wifi worked well for us - including some streaming. It is small but not too tight, we had a 30 amp back in that was easy access. The higher numbers are slightly closer to the water but even number 10 could see the bay. Proper hotel check in and very nice. All have a clear sky view for sat. TV was good as well. Great location in a bay between Anacortes and Mount Vernon. Everything you need in the area. Great hike up to the top of Cap Sante marina - great views from the top. Always do a kayak trip to the San Juan area. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Anacortes go to Bob's Chowder and get the clam chowder and fried oysters. Tulips in April were a great surprise but very crowded. Deception Pass worth a drive and walk down the steps.

We stayed over New Years Eve weekend, taking advantage of the BOGO offer they have in the 'off season'. Sewer set at back edge of space. All the reviews are accurate, and my only issues were poor cable TV signal quality and the RV swaying when the oil train to the refinery goes by was just enough to wake me. Otherwise, this is a great place to stay! We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this park. Our pull thru site was long and fairly level, and faced the water, which provided nice views. It was refreshingly cooler here than the inland area we had just come from. We had a clear shot of the sky for satellite, great Verizon service, good cable TV selection, and all utilities worked well. The casino, restaurants within the casino, and the gas station on the property were all very convenient. We would definitely return here.

Our second time staying here. A simple no frills, no trees no shade park behind the casino, but has full hook-ups, great cable. Pull through and back-ins, but reservations highly recommended. Remodeling inside is complete and they added a 24/7 full menu café, a food court, a deli/snack bar and a steak house. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

No frills park, sites are close and minimal. We arrive before the 2 o'clock check in and our site was not vacated. The occupant was having engine trouble and could not start it. He called AAA and they could not start it. He called for a tow truck and it took until 10pm to clear the site. Park management did nothing to help with this problem even though they were notified very early in the day about the problem. The park manager did comp us for the entire stay but that did not help with the stress it put on us. There is a train that travels right on the edge of the park, thankfully it does not blow a whistle when going by, but you do feel movement in your RV when it goes by. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

This RV park is pretty much no frills but it comes with a hotel and casino. We used the fitness center but did not try any of the restaurants. The RV park has asphalt driveways and gravel site pads. They have both pull-thru sites (with 50amp electric) and back-in sites (with 30amp electric). The sites also have cable hook-up and WiFi which was fairly high quality. We paid $37.98 per night with tax. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The location does not give you much close by but you can reach Whidbey Island with a short drive west. Both Oak Harbor and Coupeville are well worth a visit. The local Penn Cove mussels at Toby's Tavern in Coupeville are memorable.

Overall Rating:

Never having been to the area before, we didn't realize how few options there are in the area. There are lots of wonderful state parks on Whidbey Island, but our length (35 ft travel trailer) makes those options a problem. While there is power at sites in the parks, we are traveling in October and reservations are not accepted. It's first come first served. We were able to get 5 days at the casino, but the weekend was not available. We had to leave on Friday. The five days we were at the casino, it was perfect. The sites are long enough and wide enough. There is a picnic table (which we didn't use because it was cold), and GREAT WIFI. Some of the best we have ever experienced in an RV park. Having the casino close was good for a restaurant meal in the sports bar, but mostly we cooked in the RV. We were able to travel all over the region from here. We were able to find another private park closer to a class I was going to take at the Pacific Northwest Art School to move to, but now we have to deal with no phone service (Verizon) at this park. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were able to visit attractions in this area easily from this casino. The highlight was the Hibulb Cultural Center that explains how the Tulalip tribes were treated and transformed to farmers from hunter/gatherers. It also explains how they retained their native culture while peacefully adapting to the changes forced on them. A wonderful museum! Well done. Plan to spend at least an hour and a half.

The CG is attached to the Casino, the toilets are located in the casino 24 hours a day. Each site has full hookups and CTV, WiFi is available as well. A long sewer line is needed to use the sewer hook up at the site. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Due to early departure from Canada due to the wildfires, we had to stay 2 days at the casino. Everything else booked. Hard to pay $35 when the casino takes so much more. Isolated as this is, not likely you won't lose some here. Sites are great, full HU, well maintained. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

A basic park but with full hookups of which only a few pull-throughs are 50 amp. Reservations are required. Don't park until you check in. The RV park and check-in is behind casino and hard to see. There is a gravel/dirt overflow lot in back as well. No hookups there but dump station nearby. Clean park with good grass for pets.

La Conner is a beautiful little town with nice shops. The drive up to Mt. Baker was quite long. Plan for a day trip. Be sure to stop and take short path to Nooksack Falls if you go. Good fuel price at casino.

Since we did not need a full-fledged park for our one night stop, we stayed here for the first time since last century. Check in is at the casino resort. The RV park is north of the casino parking lot. The only thing there are the RV sites. They are in 2 rows of 8 spaces each surrounded on 3 sides by 17 back in sites. I believe all sites are FHU and satellite friendly. There are no bath or other facilities in the park. There are, of course, bathrooms in the casino. There is nothing between the RV park and the bay, so the views of the water and Northern Cascade Mountains to the east are clear. I saw no sign of any recycling.
