I would give Jim Creek a 10+ if the WiFi had worked, but we were here for a week and it never worked even at the office. They said the weather had something to do with it, which must mean "a cloud" since we had 3 glorious days. Also, we were not able to get TMobile/AT&T cell to give us more than Emergency Service only, but I understand that Verizon does work. Saying that, Jim Creek is a must do. Sites are wide and deep and level, with electricity and water. (Dump is available on the way out.) Bathrooms are handicapped, but the toilet is metal and will take your breath away in cold weather. Each room has a hot and free shower. Also there is a laundry available for a buck. Staff is wonderful, helpful and lots of fun. Small museum tells the story of the base. Kids have lots to do: playgrounds, games, fields, bike rentals. Pets also have runs. Don't have an RV, lots of wonderful tent sites and cabins with wood burning stoves and porch swings are all over the base. Trails to hike. The lake is about 5 miles away, by trail or road. (RVs and Motorcycles are not allowed on the road as it is narrow.) Once your at the lake, kayaks and paddle boats are available. Make sure you know where you are going as there are no signs pointing the way. After the Dead End sign, you will come to the gate which is manned 24 hours a day. It is open all year long. - Desertthorn

Let's see what I can say that is bad about this place. Wi-Fi sucked. It was up and down (mostly down) the entire time. That's pretty much it except hat and there is no place to swim or wade. This is, without a doubt, the cleanest, best maintained military recreation campground I have ever seen or been in. They have RV camping, tent camping, cabins (from no bedrooms on up), and a lodge. There is dog walk areas, hiking trails, and recreational equipment to rent (boats, bikes, etc, etc, etc). Don't come here expecting a night-life. There is almost no cell-phone service and the only TV is off a satellite. Mid-week (when we were there) it is quiet, quiet, quiet. Weekends it can be busy: more-so, if the Sea-Scouts are there. You can check out the new national web-site for the site reservation number. http://get.dodlodging.net/. - wetterwashington

I am an active duty Soldier and while camping at K&M Beach-wood last year we meet a retired Navy guy who highly recommended this campground. It took almost a year but we finally got around to it and we are glad we did. First off make sure and check the campgrounds website for specific criteria as this is a DOD facility and not everyone can enter but if you make the cut I highly recommend this site. The drive to the front gate was a little "scary" as there are no signs whatsoever directing you to this location. It is a site which allows worldwide communication with the Naval Fleet and thus is well advertised. But as you trek down the well maintained 2 lane road it comes to an abrupt halt at the front gate. But no fear, it is manned 24/7 and as we approached the gate opened up. We checked in with the full time armed security who directed us to the MWR (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation) office where I checked in. The front desk staff are just too nice and very professional and helpful. We stayed in site 11. All the RV sites have a large cement pad to park on. But as we found out the pads are not level and slope. No problems. Some leveling pads and we were good. The sites have a type of water hook up I have never seen before. You attach your hose, and pull the lever up and in the process pull down a round bypass switch when then diverts water into the hose. Strange. Well ours was sort of broke and it took some wet sleeves and pair of needle noses to make it work but the camp host was Johnny on the Spot and assisted me and made sure maintenance was made aware. The sites are just perfect with enough trees to provide cover from the rain and spaced apart far enough to ensure privacy. As with all military MWR sites they offer all sorts of outdoor equipment for rent form horse shoes to mountain bikes. Activities were planned throughout the weekend including an ice cream social and hay ride. All the facilities are well maintained. To top it all off, since the site use to have an Officers Club, they have a nice bar in the top of the check in office and serve all sorts of beers and mix drinks at a fraction of what you pay in the civilian world. We didn't take advantage since we had our kiddos but looked to be a very nice gig. The other main draw is Twin Lakes. Following a somewhat narrow, semi-improved, curvy road up and down the mountains, you end up at a picturesque lake. No swimming but small boats are available for rent as well as entire fishing sets and you can buy a license. So much outdoor stuff to do! We will definitely come back again. Highly recommend to get reservations as early as possible. We booked for the Memorial Day weekend about three months prior. A+++ Good job Navy! - Jim in GA

This is a quiet and pretty area to stop. There are only 8 or so hook-up sites for RVs, so it is best to call ahead. Back-ins only. - W Davidson

We stayed in one of the non electric sites which are back-ins against a fence. The four electric sites back-in to the casino near an entrance. Our site was long enough for the truck and 38' fifth wheel without unhitching but we needed to park the jeep in the parking lot. We were in site 10 which was fairly level, 14 and 15 appeared to have a side to side slope. Site 11 had a light pole in the roadway in front which could make for a challenging back in unless you are small. Security made frequent rounds during our stay and verified that we had our parking sticker acquired at check in. It was a Saturday night and the parking lot in front of us was pretty active until the wee hours.
Check in is at the gas station and we were told there was water and a dump but did not see these. There was a large nearly empty parking lot on the gas station side of the casino with several rv's but we were told they would be made to leave at 10PM.
It was a good overnight stop and we would not hesitate to use it again. - PBuds

The casino seems to be in the process of upgrading/changing its RV program. What used to be a unique, inexpensive overnight area is on the path to becoming more expensive and less unique. They now charge $15 for dry camping and raised the price for power hookups from $15 to $25. No sewer/water hookups. Good security (regular patrols) For a dump station I used the nearby rest area on I-5.
The RV parking area has been moved from a row near the gas station to the parking lot on the far side of the casino. There are now only four sites with electricity, but from the numbering on the power boxes it looks like they might add 20 more spots with power. They also handed me a simple survey, asking about amenities and improvements. The new area is more level, but a little bit noisy (next to the casino's HVAC). Overall, still an OK value and easy freeway access. Advance registration highly recommended if you need/want electrical. - OlderGoat

Nothing special here, just rows of side by side back-in RV sites, asphalt driveways and gravel site pads. The park is relatively new so the privacy shrubs separating the sites are only about 1.5 feet tall. Take note that there are two driveways: the south driveway is the one for daily rental and where you will find the office for registration. When coming from I-5, you will encounter the north driveway first. There is no signage to let you know not to turn into the first driveway. I was told by the office that I was supposed to notice that the two driveways have different addresses and choose the correct one. Ah, my fault then. There is no WiFi. Huh? Yep, no WiFi. They do however hand you a "Parking Handout" which offers you very specific instructions on how to position your RV in the space. Quite silly, actually, here's a sample: "Your RV must maintain a distance of at least three (3) feet away from the Park Road, no more, no less." OK, so which is it, at least 3 feet or exactly 3 feet? All that aside, if you need a place to park overnight or for a couple of days this park will suffice. By the way, where are those emerald springs? We had full hook-ups with 50 amp electric and the bathrooms/showers are fairly new so are in good condition. We paid $32.73 per night including tax. - Coopsecondact

We will stop again as it is better than the other sites around Everett ,and you get full hookups for the $30 . - snowbirdduo

This is an older RV park with small sites. There are no pull through sites. You will have to back in. It is conveniently located just off I-5 and gives good access to many north Seattle attractions. It is not a quiet and peaceful location but is better than the other Everett RV parks. Most of the occupants are full time or long term but they are required to keep up their sites. The park has one small laundry and bathroom facility. No real common or grass areas but it does have some trees and shrubs. The Wi-Fi was not usable. The management is very friendly and attentive. - cloud9

This campground is located close to an interstate, a busy highway and a railroad. It is very noisy. The hookups are located in the back between two sites - hard to reach. The people were very friendly. We didn't use the facilities and stayed there for one night in our 31' fifth-wheel. Wouldn't come again. - TheSchweitzers

This is a small Forest Service campground along the Stillaguamish River, just off the Mountain Loop Hwy. Nearby there is a public information center, as well as hiking trails and such in the area. There is also a small beach along the river. - Dan C

This is/continues to be (at least for us) a step or two up from boon docking. Roads are somewhat narrow, but that's okay. My pull through site was partially blocked by a tree so that I had to back in, but that's okay. Pads weren't quite level, but that's okay too! It's a real campground. Pleasantly surprised by the free showers. Also while crowded, the camp was very quite. There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas, including hiking, and alpine lake fishing. Best of all. No cell phone reception! My total rig length while towing is 45'. I did okay, but this camp is really designed for campers with rigs up to 25 feet in length. - mrhddh

Located in a beautiful forest by a river. Very quiet and peaceful. Sites are large, with excellent privacy. It gets a little muddy when it rains. Newly-constructed showers and bathrooms are very nice. Lots of hiking nearby. - Prof Dan

This is a National Park Campground. It is suffering from overall poor maintenance. The best campsites for RV's have been taken by the "Hosts". Every aspect of the CG other than road surface and toilets has been neglected. An obvious victim of Budget Cutting. The toilets are Pit-type and you can smell them from a long way off. Even the Gate Shack looks like it has seen better days. I went to this CG 20 years ago and it had a well maintained look. During the Summer, the Staff would even show movies with an environmental theme. Unless you have a Tent Trailer, Tent, or small Van there are probably no more than 5-6 sites that will accommodate an RV over 14'. The area is beautiful and it is a shame that the Campground doesn't match. - amlevin

As others have stated this is a parking lot with no services behind the casino. It also has no fee. You have to register with the casino and get a ONE card to so security can record you have in fact registered. If you don't have a card they put $25 on your new card to encourage you to gamble. I believe there is a 3 day maximum stay but I don't think it's enforced. It's better than Walmart as they do have security and the on/off from I5 is easy. We will use this site again when traveling south. - lrp374

The casino allows free 3 day camping behind the casino in 2 paved parking lots with marked sites. You have to enter from the street behind Quil Ceda Blvd. It is not marked well. You are allowed to stay for 3 days. First you must get a player's club card and call security so someone can come to your site and "register" you. You are required to gamble at the casino or you might be asked to leave. There is a sign at the entrance that details their rules and the number to call to get registered. We arrived early on Saturday of Labor Day weekend about noon. There were maybe 20 empty spaces which filled up in the afternoon. RV's continued to arrive until well after 10. They rode around and had to leave as all of the sites well full. - mrracechaser

Great service and very quiet park. I love the clean, new restrooms. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I had my co-workers meet us there and the price per extra visitor was way cheaper than other parks I've been to. So worth the trip!!! - Sunshine Ray

I made the mistake of staying here on a weekend in the summer. My site was surrounded by around 20 tents across 4 sites with many, many children. This is probably true of any public park in the summer. Because of the volume of people, the restrooms were pretty bad. The camp host was very generous with firewood and was willing to deal with noisy campers. I would stay again but on a week day in the summer. It has free wifi! - Thedogsma

Filthy bathroom. Woman's handicap shower wouldn't lock. $0.50 for 3 minutes of shower but can't control water temp which was HOT. Our premium site had no trees and was very close to other sites. Expected more for $48 a night. - Bob and Dar

This is a boating venue, but not very busy or noisy (stayed here mid-week on a Monday/Tuesday). The full hook-up sites with sewer are in an open area, no trees. The hookup sites with electrical and water only have trees, but low density and only semi-private. I showed up as a walk-in with no reservation but was able to get a site.
Cell reception was very good (Sprint).
However, I had an issue with power at one site. I use a surge protector (Surgeguard Model 34730). The first site I was assigned was #45. The surge protector ran its tests for the maximum 128 seconds and refused to connect. I then plugged in without the surge protector, had power for a bit, and then the power switched off. I have a 30 amp rig, but regularly connect at home to a 15 amp outlet and the surge protector has no problems. The park had had been full the previous weekend and had no power complaints, but the ranger still allowed me to try a different site. Site #26 had a newer circuit box, and might be part of a different main system, so I tried that. This time, the connection "passed" the surge protector test stage. Power readouts were variable. Within the first few minutes, the power readout ranged from 114v at 7 amps, to 116v at 16 amps. It could be that my surge protector is starting to fail, but that wouldn't explain why the power shut off at site #45 when I connected without the surge protector.
Despite the power concern, I would stay here again. The area was very clean and generally quiet (the nearest road is not busy). When staying near Seattle I need to have good cell service, so the quality of the cell signal outweighs a minor power concern. - OlderGoat

Campground is full of people who live here with dirty old trailers and motorhomes. Makes it look like at homeless encampment. Buildings look unkept and everybody has an attitude. - Jim Daniel

The sites are way too close together making it awkward to sit outside and talk. The lady at the front desk is very rude and did not address our concern about being locked out. - Maya112

Another campground that wants to be a resort! Spaces are pretty tight for those with big rigs (motor homes or travel trailers) in spite of the pull-thru ability in several. Small children were playing on interior roads on scooters and bicycles before 7 AM. So much for solitude and quiet for campers. Permanent and long term residents spread throughout the park, not confined to a particular area. Sites are on grass (not a great feature considering the annual rainfall in the area), and water faucets are at ground level which makes it difficult to hook up. Experienced "vandalism" twice in 18 hours. While away from the site someone opened the electricity box cover and removed pulled my cord out of the receptacle and laid the cord on the ground. Neighbors claimed innocence and no knowledge. Entry gate locked at 10 PM and a $5 deposit is required for a card to be able to open it after hours. They're "pet friendly," but keep that pet on a leash! - grandflic
