We stayed here again this year for our "week out" of the park that's closer to our family. It's a long drive from here to Everett, but there aren't many choices and this one's free for us as 30-year Leisure Time members (the name of this group of campgrounds before Thousand Trails purchased them). We struggled to find a spot that was long enough for us, but finally managed to get to one in the E section - it looks like they've recently done some grading of sites in there; lots of wood/tree debris pushed around. That section is entered with a very steep downhill part, but we managed OK in our 68' rig. Our site was fairly easy to back into, but not very level. We didn't use any of the amenities this time except the bathroom, and two of the centrally located bathrooms were closed - one had porta-potties outside. They have four others, one near the pool. It was some problem with the electricity, people were getting shocked in the showers! They had been dealing with the electric company for some time and not getting very far it seems. As mentioned before, this park is long and parallels the freeway, so expect some noise. It's fairly constant, which makes it like white noise. Lots of trees, it's a wooded, rustic experience. Sites are first-come, first served. Don't expect a sewer site, there are only 17 of those. They'll put you on a waiting list, but who wants to move once you're already set up? Just plan on using your own tanks and their bathrooms. The dump station is awkward for rigs as big as ours, we dumped at the rest area on I-5. Southbound there's one near Arlington and another near Marysville, with multiple dump lanes and easy access. Northbound, there's one just past the freeway entrance from the campground. You can actually see it from the campground if you hike around the perimeter trail. Drive out Bow Rd across the freeway and you can turn right at the Bow Post Office intersection at Hwy 11 and be on Chuckanut Drive. It's a nice drive with views of the water, and a state park. The drive ends in Bellingham, a nice place to explore. College town, so plenty of cheap and interesting places to eat and drink. - Denise and Glenn

We had previously stayed at this campground in Sept 2017 - it was quite rainy then, so we did not spend much time outside our rig. This time, we stayed only 2 days, but we had friends come to visit so we spend a good time outside the rig. Even though the traffic noise on I-5 was definitely noticeable, it wasn't so loud as to make conversation difficult outside the rig. - pattic777

This campground is right along I-5, so although you cannot see it, you can hear traffic pretty continuously. Friends had cautioned us to have the windows down in the Jeep when we were selecting a site so we would hear whether the traffic noise was disturbing. We knew that the site had traffic noise, but thought that with the windows closed on the bus, we wouldn't hear it... it wasn't so loud as to be disruptive, but it was constant. The campground is very wooded and very long - if you select a site in the back, just driving in and out of the campground can take a while (at 5 MPH). Our nightly rate was $0 as Thousand Trails Family Courtesy Card holders. - pattic777

If you like peace, quiet, and isolation, this is your place. Right on the Nooksack River -- shady and cool. Muddy when it rains -- what were you expecting, concrete? Primitive facilities -- a couple of very clean pit toilets. Water is pumped out of a well by hand -- it's a little rusty, but tastes okay. Sites are large, with excellent privacy. Great location -- very near lots of wilderness hikes throughout North Mount Baker area. - Prof Dan

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

The campground is set up for self-pay at the office, but if using a credit card, there is a host camper next to the office who can accommodate that. Access to the sites is across a 10' wide bridge. It looks intimidating but your rig will cross with no problems. We were assigned a long pull through. Water and power worked well. There are ballfields adjacent to the campground so some evenings may have activity until around 10 PM. This is located about a mile south of the border crossing. This is a no frills basic rv park which was fine for an overnight stay, but in my opinion is overpriced. - Trailbuddy

We had a very good experience at this RV Park and loved staying here! This park is extremely convenient to the Canadian border and makes a great base to see all of the sights in Washington too. We were warmly welcomed and immediately invited to a BBQ later that day. We had a very nice pull through site - level and on gravel. There was one issue that we addressed with the manager and it was handled promptly and pleasantly by maintenance. I even got a phone call the next day to make sure all was well. This is a real gem of a park and we will certainly be back! Thanks to the staff for making our stay so enjoyable. - roadtripper4ever

I just moved to Sumas RV Park in a larger travel trailer, intending to stay long term.
The park is under new management now and they are friendly and accommodating. The new managers have made many upgrades to the park grounds and to the quality of the long term residents.
Older reviews of this park should be regarded with these comments in mind. This place is definitely on the upswing, and the price is very competitive. Check it out...! - Villa

We did not like this resort! We came here for tent camping and the place was a parking lot. It was so crowded. Forget any kind of privacy. Tent sites are delineated by chalk lines, and you are so close to the next tent you can hear them roll over in their sleeping bags and snore all night long. There is absolutely no space at this resort. The launch ramp is tiny, very narrow with an RV parked right next to it, so there's very little room to maneuver as you try to back in around the trees. Our reserved tent site had been given away to another family who said they had a large party. Luckily, the girl at the front counter who had given the site away, went and asked them to move. But we just started the weekend on the wrong foot. After a very long night of no sleep, we decided to leave a day early. I do not recommend this park if you want any kind of privacy! - stacyterp

The setting is brilliant; gorgeous lake and mountains. The campground itself is undergoing bathroom construction and they are experiencing major electricity issues. My neighbours and I had to walk to the fuse box every 15 minutes which became a major annoyance. Staff did not seem overly concerned. There seemed to be an overabundance of dogs when we stayed. As there are other options in the area we shall not stay there again. - Bezza

The resort is very tired and in need of a major remodel. Bathrooms and showers are not in good condition. RV sites are randomly scattered around the grounds, are fairly small and tightly packed. Access roads are single lane and either paved, gravel/dirt or grass. The only designated parking that we saw was for trailers, so cars were parked randomly everywhere. Seasonal attendees act as if they own the place (the few that we bumped into). Kids run around the park with little care for others. Parents will watch their kids cut you off as you're driving down the road, let them wash their bikes at the boat launch (while you're launching a boat) and cut through your campground. Although the staff were nice, they were not around to enforce quite time in the evening. People were allowed to overflow into the common areas, making passage difficult. The resort has a beautiful location on Lake Whatcom, but that is it’s only redeeming value. - Stu

We just stayed 3 nights. It was honestly a bit inconvenient to ensure that we used up all our produce before crossing the border (just in case the border officer asked about or required us to dispose of it), and then get Canadian funds to use at the local farmers markets, for such a short stay. We also found that our Verizon service only allowed us 0.5G of data/day on "international roaming" before it slowed us down to unacceptable speeds. Nightly rate was $0 due to holding family courtesy card. Friends had advised us to unhook before going into the campground as there was really no place to detach toad after entering the campground. We found that there was a large parking lot right outside the ranger station, but during the few days we were there, part of it was bulldozed away, leaving a smaller space... I don't know whether that was temporary or a permanent change. - pattic777

Very friendly and helpful staff. Too many trees for Satellite or Internet but there was Internet in the clubhouse. They had breakfast on the weekend and dinner on Saturday night. It is a very quiet place and about 10 minutes from a big town. - rolling homeless

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

We have stayed here since kids young. It’s convenient to Lynden and border. Not updated as much in past few years but I like the location. It’s quiet and friendly. - Lyone

Nice grounds, mostly easy to navigate, convenient pump-out. Cell service is minimal, wifi is minimal around the clubhouse and the service is throttled by their provider. We were backed up to the lake in a 30-foot travel trailer. We're new campers and this was our very first experience. Be prepared for the Geese to laugh at you if you don't back in perfectly the first time. Really, it sounds like they are laughing. The folks who work at the park are very nice. The restrooms were a bit of a walk. - MilesKB

Very dirty park with no pavement. Stepped in cat waste everywhere I went. It's close to the freeway so you hear trucks all night long. No facilities to wash clothes. Manager is hard to get in contact with. My site is all dirt and there is no grass. I am having a hard time getting my motorhome level. - johnpmcelroy

I am having electrical problems and currently use a makeshift electrical cord which wont do when it gets cold. Manager does not take care of sites. Up to tenants only. - johnpmcelroy

One of the reasons we picked this place is because of the fitness center. Several of the machines (not very many in total) did not work. No heat in the room (51 degrees outside). So, that was a bust. The sites are grass and dirt. Thank goodness it wasn't raining. Also, the sites are close. It's mostly a full time park and looks like it. For an overnight, I guess it was OK. However, there are a lot of RV places in Bellingham. I think I should have looked further. - Ken Sawczyn

Muddy. Hated the head to tails (they call it) parking. No privacy, door to door. - Bsvls
Aug 2017 - $36.00
Trailers standing heads to tails allowing more space and privecy. Internet can be available when site is close to the office.
The host is very kindly and there is a good atmosphere in the C.G, we enjoyed and sure will come again. - summerdude
