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.

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.

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.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

After reading some of the comments in previous years, namely the extremely negative review done in June 2014 we were somewhat sceptical about booking at Swinomish. Access to the casino rv park was well marked and easy to navigate with wide access lanes. When we arrived I asked the front desk staff what the power voltage was and they were told by phone with maintenance that it was 30 amp and 120 volts. This was confirmed when I plugged in my surge guard power protector and all green lights showed. We were told to go to our site, which was shown on the park rv map and settle in then come back and register, which was reassuring as often you have paid only to find out the site looks better on the web page than in reality. Water, pressure showed just under 40 psi so there was no concern about incurring damage to our rv's plumbing system. Power, cable, water, and sewer were all available at the rear of our unit, which is consistent with any other park layout. We found the park very well maintained, garbage was picked up twice daily and the sprinklers came on before dawn to water the grass. Our site had two picnic tables that we were able to position where we wanted without any difficulty. The walkway from the rv park to the casino was well light with pedestal post lights and a paved walkway. Yes, the park is situated next to train tracks and the train using those tracks moved slowly not creating much noise. We heard the train whistle each day once in the late afternoon and never during the evening or night. We stayed for three nights and would stay again if in the area.

Tips for other Campers:

The park has an overflow area for those folks wanting to stay in the area but dry camp and is spacious and level. This is a great place to use as a home base while exploring Burlington, LaConnor, and Anacortes. Check out Anthony's seafood restaurant in Anacortes, excellent food.

We arrived here in the evening and found it difficult to find the road to the park - it winds around the back of the casino. The actual site was difficult to find as the lighting was very poor and the numbers are printed on the road. Take a flashlight! Some highway noise and two trains came through in the night.

The other comments apply. We did get awakened late at night (4am) by the train going by and blowing its horn. This may be unusual but it happened twice during our stay. For the price its a reasonably good deal. The hotel is now occupied so the great deal on breakfast is no longer available. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

CAUTION, use your water pressure regulator. I didn't at first and gave my pant leg a bath when I flushed the toilet. Back in 30 amp sites only $22, 50 amp and pull through $25. Great value for level gravel sites with grass between and a table with water, power, sewer, cable and Wi-Fi. Construction is complete so park is very quiet. Add in the casino with good eats and you have a winner. Don't forget to get a players card, even if as is our case we don't gamble because this gets you discounts in the eateries.

Construction is done and campground is quiet. For a Casino Campground the price is about right. You have cable, free internet, 50 amp and pull throughs. While i have stayed at casinos either boon docking or in there campground from west coast to east coast this probably is one of the best. The campground has good and bad points but overall i give it a eight. The food and service at the Casino restaurant was very good and you have to check in at the Players Club counter, very friendly. My only complaint is if you stay for a week you could have to move a couple of times due to the fact people reserve spots by number for instance if we wanted to stay another day we would have to move because someone reserved our spot even though the campground is only half full but we would stay here again.

We stayed here over a Sunday so the construction noise they warned us about on check in was non-existent. We had a lovely water view site. There are tons of activities besides the casino. A good base for exploring the San Juan Islands. We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

We found this park to be a good stop for a night or two. While the sites are very basic gravel/grass with some sprinkler issues (read mud), the bay view and the adjacent good food and service at the casino kind of made up for it. Our clubhouse sandwiches came in at about five pounds and lasted four days for $9.95! Dinner was great as well, with reasonable wine prices. The adjacent fuel stop is also Indian owned and we found fuel to be 20 cents less than other stations. Other guests here said this was the lowest priced diesel within 100 miles! Boats go by the nearby grassy beach area. Don’t worry about the train tracks as only one local freight train goes by each day. We planned on taking the drive south down highway 20 and the ferry to Port Townsend but had to turn around. We did not have a reservation and the wait time at 11AM was stretched until 9:30 PM! Book ferries ahead of time! We camped at Swinomish Northern Lights Casino RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
