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.

You have to use credit card to reserve/pay for RV site and each time I have done this here my card has been compromised. CC company said it happens a lot when used at casinos. The A/C for hotel is right behind some sites and extremely noisey. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park serves its intended purpose: provide a place to park for gamblers or overnight travelers. No amenities like rest rooms, showers, laundry, pool. You do get full hook ups, a level pad, a picnic table, and some grass. Water pressure is very high: 90 psi. Management deals with this by advising campers to turn off the water spigot when not in your camp site. That advice won't protect your plumbing from damage - only a water pressure regulator will do that. Friendly gal at the check in desk. Excellent food at 13 Moons - a restaurant in the casino. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

What used to be a pretty nice RV park is not any more. In order to get into the park you need to take a dusty road behind the casino. Then go into the hotel lobby to register. I had reserved a pull through but was assigned a back in. The problem is that the back ins only have 30 amp service. After some arm twisting I was given a pull through. You no longer pay up front for the space but have to check-out upon leaving. They don't have a clue as to how to assign spaces. There were camper shells occupying the pull throughs and big rigs in the back ins. If only they knew how to manage an RV Park. And at $38 it is hardly worth it. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

The previous 3 reviews are accurate. However the sites are not all that level. Now for the problems, Wi-Fi was out of service the whole time and worst of all there is MAJOR construction going on -- building a hotel adjacent to the RV park. Entrance is changed and no mention of this by the somewhat surly check in staff -- had to go around the building through the construction area to get to the campground. The construction noise started very early and went till after 5pm at night. There is also talk of moving the campground somewhat. So, be aware if you are planning on staying here during the next year (?) or so. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

I've been here many times, quick check in and friendly staff. My biggest complaint is the sites are gravel and when it rains you get puddles and very muddy. Sites are level, the black connection is a few feet from other connections which can be problematic. All in all good, just wish they'd pave the sites. Very clean park and quiet. Can get windy so make sure your awning wind guard works! No showers or wash rooms in the casino. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

Staff was nice, the park was clean but needed the lawns mowed and weeded. I suppose since people are there for the casino its not a big priority. Big issue was they water in the late night and puddles everywhere on the sites. I was disconnecting my utilities and my feet were sopping wet. Basic cable TV, WiFi worked great. Staff was very nice. Checkout was 11A and they extended till 1P no charge. I'd come back only as its connected to the casino. Enroll in the slot programme for a small discount.

This is just a big, paved parking lot, but if you are into gambling, I suppose it is a good place. I only stayed because it was late and I wanted to stop for the night. Would not come again for any length of time. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 5 nights in a 40-footer. There was a nice area around the campground to walk dogs. The campground had dispensers for dog waste bags, but were empty until our last day. We liked the campground except that they irrigated daily from 5 AM until 7 AM leaving water standing in the sites all day. We commented on this several times to no avail. That is the only real problem, but is the reason we would not stay here again. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

It is okay for an overnight stay with hookups. It is nothing fancy. There are no restrooms or showers. The food not so good. We had a free steak dinner and veggies were cold. The rolls came after we had eaten dinner. The steak was not done enough for husband. It included one trip to salad bar, but was not told soup OR salad. There was no lettuce, so we took soup and waited on salad to find out that it was either soup or salad, but gal let us have salad, but they were out of ranch dressing. So we wouldn't not recommend the food. We will go to nearby restaurant for breakfast. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a reasonably priced, FHU park with decent cable and WI-FI that worked fine for us. I can understand some of the previous complaints (poor site assignment, to much watering, lack of restrooms, lack of staff for the RV park, etc.). However, it works fine for just an overnight stop. I'd probably stay at one of the other parks in the area if spending more than 1 night. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you just need a place to park while you are gambling I think there are better choices in the area. Very low class stale smoke casino to match the low class parking lot with hookups. A very lengthy check in procedure that added to the average rating. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.
