26 RV Parks near Carnation, Washington

This was a nice park, but it is a Thousand Trails park. This means that the facilities will be older, and the sites are not reserved meaning when you get there you have to drive around trying to find an open spot. It was close to Memorial day, but we lucked out in finding a pretty nice spot. It is a serious challenge getting satellite as the park is heavily forested, which makes it very beautiful - much like camping in the forest. We had lots of opportunities to walk around and it was beautiful. The site is 30A and water only. There are a lot of long term campers hauling there portable tanks to the dump station, and I saw a couple of very disgusting displays of poor sanitation of people emptying those tanks. A word of warning about power quality: our power protection kicked out several times due to over and under voltage. I would say it is mandatory to have power protection to protect your electronics and unit systems. It was a nice stay, but a challenge due to the power and sewer issues. - AZ_Travelers

Really...$61 for this campground? really? I camped here one night to visit some friends and my go-to campground closes Nov 1. I had no other choice. Gravel roads, gravel sites, unkempt site, not particularly level, leaves everywhere. Crappy fire pit stick back in the trees. Not a bad campground for $35, but $61 with tax is absurd. - the5reeds

Peaceful with gorgeous tall trees. Each site was pretty private. Site a little unlevel, nice picnic table and fire pit although because of fire danger, unable to use. Pool and spa closed as late in the season. The park help extremely nice. Wish we could have stayed longer. A bit of a drive to get there, but close to Snoqualmie Falls. We had satellite reception. This is a thousand trails park, and we are not members, but were welcomed. - Crbus

The lot was pretty spacious. I was initially confused about the layout, but all the spots were a kind of semi-circular pull-through to where your RV is facing a very private "yard" and the back of your RV is facing the internal field. The site hosts were on top of it, our site was marked and ready when we arrived, no real check-in or check-out was required. The restrooms were kept very clean, it seemed they were cleaned each day we were there. - joshnichols84

The sites are all alike in the shape of a half circle. The sites are a little tight for a 40" motorcoach. The utilities are placed correctly and work well. There is a dump station about a quarter of a mile down the road which cost $5.00--not included in the camping fee. Overall a busy place which requires a reservation in advance. We camped here in a 40' motorcoach. - illini777

This is a county park that has spots for RV's and tents. The RV spots are pull throughs with power and water. It is more like a small state park than a county park. Downtown Carnation is a short walk away if you need something. The park is 30-40 minutes away from Seattle and Bellevue, making it a nice quick get away to the country. - Dan C

We were there for a quiet stop but really enjoyed the quiet. Our gravel site was spacious, had some shade, and included a picnic table. - Rvmomma

Never again! This could be such a nice RV/campground but it's not! Right on river but so overgrown you can't get to it. Bathroom is so dirty my husband would not even think about using them, and he's not very picky. Sites are on top of each other, there is no Wi-Fi , laundry, game room, etc...but yet they charge $34.00 a night. The only thing this park has going for it is location it's about 35 mins from downtown Seattle. But about 15 miles away in Carnation WA, there is a better place. Also lots of live in people with junk every where that ruins a park for me. FYI; there is no sign saying turn here for this RV park and our GPS did not have the turn right, when I told the lady at check-in about this she say's "happens ALL the time!" Not sure if it happens all the time why you would not change it, but... So if you miss the turn you end up in a roundly round or small downtown area. Turn right before the bridge. - laears

Park is OK for a stay of a week or so. Short supply of parks in the general Seattle area. Entrance road is horrible - really not wide enough for two lanes, so you must go slow. Speed bumps every few feet. Typical riverside park with elevated electrical hookup because of being in flood plain. Staff friendly, but there is a depressed feeling about the place. Everything is JUST OK. Lots of weekenders which is to be expected because of the river. - PugetSound

Live here long term. It feels like a national park, amidst beautiful trees, and it's quiet despite being close to the highway, 6 minutes from shopping, pleasant landscaping. It's much better than other alternatives that may be closer to the city. - Tom E.

Getting a place to stay in this area is tough, getting a reservation at a nice park like Blue Sky, nearly impossible. I was lucky enough to get one month here as I had to return to the area to do some "warranty" work on a prior job from 3 yrs ago. This park is very well kept and the restrooms/showers were great especially with where I was located (#51). There is a mixture of small and large RV's, all of which are newer and the people residing here show a sense of pride. - PatAnd

Beautiful park close to Seattle area. Very popular so difficult to get a reservation on short notice. Site spaces are close together like a lot of parks but OK. - Doug Toye

This campground was just ok for us. No pull through. No pool. No pet off leash and the Pet area was outside of the campground and along the narrow road side. It is very close to Highway 90 which is good for access and close to shopping but lots of road noise. - Lisa Pumphrey
Jun 2019 - $50.00
This is an acceptable place to stay if you are visiting Seattle area. No much in way of amenities, no pool, etc. but that is of no interest to us. The bathrooms were clean and wifi worked well. So, for us it was fine. The sites are gravel but level and there was enough room for our 33 ft. class A plus car park. - Phoenixaway
Jun 2019 - $60.00
Not a bad place at all. Small sites and maneuvering can be challenging for larger rv's but it can be done if you take your time. Site was level and hookups convenient. Road noise for us was not an issue. - Martini Chuck

This park no longer exists. Not sure why it is still here. This was a TT park, but hasn't been in years. - PugetSound

What a beautiful and clean environment! We enjoyed the views and proximity to the slopes. We'll be returning here in the future. - Groarkelis

Cascade is a very nice membership campground. Located close to Snoqualmie Pass is a good base camp for skiing also close to Seattle area and shopping. The park is nicely maintained and offers many activities during the summer season but is very quiet in the winter season. - bgenoe

Campground is close to interstate but quiet. Nice scenery on lake with mountain views. Had W/E only and the sites are extremely narrow but very long. Close with a slide out but managed OK. Firepits available. Nice choice for proximity to city. - CCMcLeod

This is our 3rd time staying. The owners and people are so on top of cleanliness, trash, lawn maintenance. It's truly wonderful if you like lake life. We see eagles and herons flying above us, sun reflecting on Lake Sammamish, our kids playing in the swimming area with slide. . Definitely worth coming again and again.
We were happy with our space. We have preferred the spot on the end (23?). Companies have their parrots at park, but it was fun people watching as well as people launching their boat from the ramp in front of us. One guy fell in water as he was guiding the driver down the ramp. Hahahahah
Definitely book in advance- January for the spots in June - August. Recommend the end spot in the end (23?) - Lagomamasita

This is a fairly clean park. During the day there's some traffic and aircraft noise; at night it's quiet.
20 amp plus water sites are long, non-level grass and dirt with no shade. Utilities are at the back, and half are on the wrong side. Full hookup sites are shorter, non-level gravel and grass, with utilities in the usual locations. Each site has a picnic table.
Roads are asphalt in fair condition with some potholes and many annoying speed bumps.
There's one private shower per gender, $0.25 for 5 minutes. The men's shower is inadequately ventilated and usually muddy, with discolored tiles, a torn shower curtain, and cobwebs. I saw one silverfish.
Verizon LTE works well.
WiFi is strong. I measured 571.6 kB/s down.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
There are strong terrestrial broadcast TV signals from CBS and ION.
Laundry: 2 top-loaders ($1.75), 2 dryers ($1.50).
Rate is total with tax for a 20 amp site. - wjzcbn

We stayed here for a long weekend and managed to arrive early. The desk staff was very helpful and got us in early and was very accommodating. With some planning, they allowed us to leave our trailer in a back in space while we were in town prior to our departure. That gave us an extra day to visit family.
The roads a a little tight but manageable if you scout your path. The road noise was not noticeable except when sitting outside, which we didn’t do much, or when an emergency vehicle went by. We will be back. - Pfmarine1

Efficiently managed. Very tightly packed in. Rather challenging to maneuver a big rig. Felt safe. Very close to the interstate, considerable road noise. This is just a place to park, go sightsee, and be on your way. - Lizzie Bliss

We spent five nights at this campground while visiting my daughter who lived near downtown Seattle. You can't beat the location. Some freeway noise. There is a market within walking distance. Yes, it is parking lot camping but we were gone all day and only came back at night to get some rest. Front office staff was very helpful. - pb24

We were back at our "used-to-be-home" campground to spend Christmas with the family. This time - at the coldest time of the year - the park was nearly full. The gal at the gatehouse suggested we would fit in #30, so we walked over to check it out. It was barely long enough for our rig, but an easy back-in as it was right next to the interior road and almost parallel. We took it, and noticed there was a handicap sign on the site post. We double-checked with the gatehouse, but she said it wasn't marked that way on her paperwork (and not on the map they hand out either), so she said not to worry. We were able to park the truck at the playground so it was just a walk across our "lawn" and the camp road. Not too bad. We had a sewer hookup, but only 30-amp electric. That was its own issue - the power went below what our EMS system allows and shut off multiple times. It always came back on, but was really a nuisance. Perhaps the power should be the next upgrade they work on here. The campground was full the entire two weeks we were there. It seems that if that is happening here, when winter is the absolute worst time of the year to be here - constant rain, just warm enough to not be snowing, mud and wet everywhere - that perhaps corporate should consider that TOO MANY sites have been sold as "personal sites". Just my opinion - about a campground that has been in our membership for over 30 years. We're glad to see some improvements being made, they are long overdue, and I don't see how the greater membership is being served when so few of them can get in because so many sites are not available. - Denise and Glenn

We stayed here for two weeks, then out for a week, then two weeks again. As usual, we stayed on the river side of the campground because there are no spaces we would fit in available on the main side. That's OK with us, we don't use the facilities anyway except the bathrooms, which were in better shape this time than they have been in the past. The pool area was very clean and looked inviting, and it appears like the campground might be getting a little facelift. We saw some "suits" there walking around, and while we were there a new wifi connection was being installed on the river side at the office/adult lounge building. We hope someone is paying attention to this campground, because it sorely needs it. Our site this time was through the entrance near the adult lounge, and we chose a site on the tree side rather than the water side. This wound up being an excellent choice, as we were in the shade by about 10 am and stayed in the shade until the sun was going down. Kept the rig a lot cooler. Since we have family in the area, we choose to shower at their house, and we can go the two weeks without dumping. It doesn't seem fair that we should have to pay for that service when we've been paying dues for 30 years and can't access the sites with a sewer connection because the larger ones have all been "sold" as permanent sites. You now have to call a company to have the honey wagon come out, so plan ahead because emergency calls are more expensive! The roads on the river side have turnarounds and are easy enough to navigate, but the main side has tight turns and hills - you might need to know that if you need to use the dump station and have a large rig like ours. The dump station across the road was closed part of the time we were there, and since it's designed to dump on the way out of the main section, it would be almost impossible for us to get into it with our large rig as there's no place to turn around without going into the grass. We would have to go around the whole park, and the turns are really tight and it's hilly. We dump at the rest area on the freeway, one near Marysville, one near Arlington, and another near Bow on I-5. - Denise and Glenn

We chose to be on the river side so there was no sewer. The park no longer provides a pumping service and it is $60 now to have someone come in. The yard was very rough to walk in and grass was long. With the high charge for dumping we will not be staying here again. You can use their dump station which is across the road but has no water to put a few gallons back in your tank. Picnic table was in rough shape. That being said being on the water was nice. - rolling homeless

Eagle Park RV and Event Center We travel a great deal in our RV and I have to say this park was one of our most pleasant experiences! It truly is a hidden gem. The camp hosts are the nicest and friendliness you could ever encounter. They care so much about the park and their guests and it definitely shows. We stayed next to a running creek, where we saw a deer feeding on the foliage and the flowers they have planted really make for a beautiful homey little spot. Picnic tables and benches are thoughtfully located near the creek for peaceful viewing. Yet, you are actually able to exit the park and walk just a short distance to restaurants and grocery stores. We hope to return to this peaceful place on our next visit. - redpj720

I stayed a few days for a wedding event. They offer power and water. Unfortunately no black water service. The grounds are beautifully kept. There is a river running alongside. This is a small RV park that is also a venue for a wedding or party rentals. The hosts were very accommodating and I plan to return. - KamperKen
