We had a reservation here for last week. The phase 2 area was completely full when we arrived on a Wednesday midday- that area would have been somewhat okay- the sites are large, but basically just an open field. The phase 1 area was worse than a parking lot. The sites are so small and close. There is zero privacy and not amenable to pets at all. We were not impressed with any of the facilities there such as restrooms or playgrounds. We drove right out and luckily had a place to camp at nearby family member's home. We have camped at several other Thousand Trails/Encore parks and they have all been super great. So disappointed with the Birch Bay TT parking lot. - JulieandWade

Really nice park. Very flat, very open, but in June there was a nice breeze. The 1st section you come to has lots of trees and seems a bit more cramped, the newer 2nd section is like camping side-by-side on a huge lawn with plenty of space. EVERYONE (I think) has sewer hook-up with is awesome !! WiFi is available for a minor fee and it's actually worth it. Great connectivity. I did have a connection issue at one point, called the wifi provider, they were very friendly, helpful and problem solved within minutes. (They had to remotely reboot the router for that part of the campground). Sites are mostly grass so if there is a chance of wind you should ensure proper stakes to hold awning. Most folks that had their awnings out had some secondary tie-downs. If you have a flexible sewer hose be prepared to find something to elevate/support the hose as the sewer pipe is a few inches above grade. Also be aware they only allow elevated fire pits. - MilesKB

Unlike a lot of Thousand Trails parks, this one is easy to navigate. Roads are wide enough for 2 vehicles to pass each other, making it easy to back into a site. There are also several pull-through sites. Almost every site in this campground has full hook ups. There are a few that don't and they are pointed out to you when you check in. Sites are spacious and there is plenty of room to be outside. One area doesn't really have any shade trees, but that wasn't a problem for us. Dish satellite and AT&T cell worked well. Verizon MiFi worked, but it was slow. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - Bobbi1948

This park is located along the I-5 corridor and freeway noise is kind of an issue on the West side but on the East side it's very peaceful. The spaces are all large and woodsy. We are able to park our rig, truck and 16ft boat at our site. There are lots of trails you can walk around the park to the club house, pool, hot tub, horse shoes, basketball court and playground. This park is very family oriented during the Summer and have a mix of Thousand Trails members who hop back and forth from La Conner for their 7 nights out of the park. There are also a few regular Canadians who own their sites and visit the park every other weekend or so and maintain their sites impeccably. The staff here is super friendly and all work very hard to keep the grounds and bathrooms clean. Entering the park is a little tricky. You literally have to drive through the Skagit casino parking lot, make a right at the smoke shop and drive around 1/2 mile to reach the welcome center. 5 miles an hour is strictly enforced! As it should be, there are lots of children and anything over 5 mph kicks up the dust. We joke and call it the Thousand Dusty Trails! All cell reception is THE BEST! There are cell towers everywhere around here. Come here to get out and explore! There is so much to see and do in this area. - Glamour Glampers

Being a new TT member, and to this park, my family was impressed with how it was laid out, ample selection of sites and very friendly campers and workers there. We will certainly come back again for another visit. In the mornings, the breakfasts were just awesome! We didn't get out to go shopping outside the camp, etc. Drive slow through the campground, 5 mph. Enforced. They have an onsite store too! Power tower was in good shape all worked fine. Was middle of the road with the trailer so had plenty of room available. Sewer dumps were available on the way out of the park. All worked well there, running water pretty clean. - Bookboy

This is an older park with full timers scattered about the park. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We arrived late and they came out from their house to help us to our site. The sites are terraced and tight but manageable. Close to town and the Bellis Fair mall area. Also close to the Canadian Border. - Hard Rock Fans

We've stayed here numerous times over the years and the place is showing its age. A lot of permanent residents with rundown RVs, dead or dying landscaping. Zero trees for shade. Like the other reviews stated, this ain't no destination, simply a place to stay the night while you're enroute to somewhere else. It's a shame, because the Bellingham area has a lot to offer. - Boonville Jim

Very easy off I5, right in Bellingham, handy to Bellis Fair SS and all services. Hookups accessible. Quite a few permanent residents. Manager is always friendly and efficient. I would not consider this a "destination park", but more of a place to stop on the way to somewhere else. Good TV and wifi. - flugelboneman

No credit cards accepted. Near grocer, gas station, and restaurants. Noise from I-5 not that bad. Wide enough paved sites with grass. Good Wi-Fi. Have stayed there several times. Good over nighter. - anon125

Mostly a good park. Clean, well maintained, etc.
Except when I called to make the reservation I said I was looking for someplace quiet, we had spent the previous several nights at campgrounds right off the highway.
The person I talked with said they were a mile off I5. Which was both true and a lie.
They are about a mile from the exit, but they are literally right off I5, with a common fence.
So they can have a lot of road noise, a lot.... too much for people looking for a quiet night. - wetterwashington

Awesome rv park. We had 50 amp pull thru. Those site are long and wide. Great maneuverability in the park. Awesome dog park and heated pool. Close to Bellingham for shopping. - Jdtravel

We stayed here for 2 weeks. This is a very nice park with huge sites. Each site is surrounded by tall shrubs so it feels very private. Staff are helpful & friendly. Can be pretty noisy depending on your location in the park. Huge pool. Excellent free WiFi near the office and they have lots of seating both indoors and outside so you're comfy while surfing the web. WiFi at our site was spendy...$6 daily for 2 devices. Also $3 per day for cable tv. So it was an expensive stay for us, but we love the location and the park itself. We would definitely stay again. - Arizona Nancy

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

Really cute little camp ground. Tents and travel trailers, mainly. Two clean washrooms with coin operated showers. Super friendly camp hosts and park rangers. Several good small hikes accessible right from the campground. Many shaded sites, lots of trees. Beach and hill hikes mainly. Very close to Fair Haven shops and restaurants (also Bellingham). Clean and safe. Good for families and kids. Beware of the train noise! The park is directly adjacent an active train line. Loud trains run by approximately every hour. For some it's a romantic sound, if others, maybe not. Access the park only from the north through Fairhaven. The highway south of the park is a narrow cliff road with many close rocks and cliffs and very few small turn outs. This road is not suited for RVs. Especially anything wide or over 20' in length. - Eggy 1

A very clean, well-maintained state park just south of Bellingham. The Chuckanut Road leading to the park is fine to navigate coming from the north, but not from the south due to sharp turns with protruding rocks. Excellent hiking trails, either flat, or up the mountain. Nice beach access. Trains pass through the park, but I'm a heavy sleeper so it didn't bother me. - EarthTrek

We camped for three nights here, in February. Taking into account the water was off at the sites for the winter, we did enjoy the location. Some of the sites are great and quite a few have extreme slopes. So much so, some units might be challenged to get level (larger;longer units; fore and aft). Our site was quite level and I think during busier times these sites may be picked up quickly. Short walk to a beautiful beach and great views. Depending on your tolerance level, some may find the train proximity troubling. Knowing it is there and coming a few times a night, didn't bother me much (reminded me of the Polar Express movie). Bathrooms were okay. Could use a bit more cleaning, both in frequency and extent. Certainly the conditions may be due to time of year. I highly suggest that those towing standard width or wider trailers approach the campsite from the north, as the road south out from this location has some tight sections, out to I5. Hosts were very pleasant and helpful. Three stars due to bathrooms and the number of unlevel sites (and because some may not have liked the Polar Express ;-) We stayed with a 20ft Hybrid Trailer (folded out to 27'). - Bob the Camper

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

This is a nice park with a general store, laundromat, really nice pool area, tennis courts, etc. It borders on Birch Bay State Park. It's about a mile from the water and nearby restaurants. Some sites are very close together with few trees, but others are more wooded. The park has WiFi, but it's fairly expensive. The pool area is great, with adult and family pools. The staff was great, especially one staff member who will make you a para-cord bracelet if you ask him nice. There is a nice dog run with cedar chips as well. - Dave_D

Our first opportunity to use this last of our 3 "Home Parks" for Resort Parks International, Preferred. The pools and buildings are the bright spot for this Resort. There are many campsites, with various landscaping and amenities to choose from. We chose the spot we did because our friends were camped nearby. The roads are quite rough, but that doesn't seem to bother many, who speed through the park kicking up dust. Sewer all the way at the back of the site - quite a stretch for my 20' hose. - DocWMB

We made a reservation thru Coast to Coast for 5 nights. Upon arrival there was no suggestion where we could find a spot to receive satellite TV. After searching 20+ minutes we found a spot and hookup. Wife went to office to THEN sign-in. She returned and finished set-up. Read RULES handout which said in red, "RVs may not be left unattended overnight without permission from management. A moving and storage fee will be charged unless prior arrangements have been made.". Well this certainly sounded ominous!! We were planning to leave our coach for two nights to go fishing in Canada. We drove to the office to seek an OK to be gone for two nights, only to be told NO! We would have to move our coach into an overflow area (no Hook ups). Both the manager and staff indicated that this info was printed in "our member booklet". We told both that we were NOT members of the park and nothing was printed on "their" website, or Coast to Coast. Neither could give a reason for the rule but it was mandatory without exception. Nothing was going to change their minds even a call to the manager. We moved! Upon returning from our fishing trip we found that spot we had paid for was taken by someone else. Management stated that they didn't reserve/save a spot even though we had signed in and paid for it. Being fed up with their attitude and unsubstantiated rule we left. We have corresponded with management and they stand by their rule. - bigbuda
