New to RVing with a 30 foot TT. As others have said, if you have a longer rig, do NOT "just go down any street because there are no dead ends." As it is first-come-first-served, even in this off-season, the best sites may be taken by small RVs and in one case a site with sewer hookup was taken by a tent camper!!! We have stayed here twice as it is close and we are new to camping and have friends who come here all the time. Once you get in, it is quiet and you feel secluded which is nice if that's what you are looking for (which we are). It seems like a great camp for kids and pets. Our friends have both and usually stay in the spots near the one big open area. There's also the beach to explore too, and of course, going into town is a short drive. Do not expect cell service. While there is likely good service for any of the carriers somewhere in the park, where there isn't good service, there is almost no service. For example, there is about a 100-foot stretch that I found 5 bars of Sprint 4G-LTE and even started streaming a Netflix show to verify. However, the rest of the park I am roaming with only 1-2 bars and can't even get a Facebook feed to refresh. My friends have other carriers and while the "good spot" is different for each, it's the same general story. Wifi is only available at the club-house. Especially during the off-season, you should be able to find a spot. It may not be where or what you expected, but it will be adequate. Maintenance is adequate, and cleanliness is adequate. Hard to navigate larger rigs. I recommend walking around to find a spot. Our first time, after several close calls, once settled we strolled the park looking for potential spots for the next time. This made the second visit here MUCH easier. It must be said that the pump stations (there are three lanes) are convenient and easy to access/use and there are grey water dumps near the restrooms throughout the park. - MilesKB

The park is about 12 miles off of I-5. It does have views of the bay from near the pool, laundry and store which was the only place we could get Verizon cell service. Were only able to get a few channels OTA which pixelated and most of the time unwatchable. The site was a back in and heavily shaded. Some of the campers have more than the allotted number of vehicles so there are tight squeezes getting down some of the roads. - mrracechaser

We are Thousand Trails members and the price is included in our annual membership fee. If you like woodsy settings this campground is for you, though it was a bit dark for us. Only a few of the sites have a sewer though all have electricity and water. The sewer sites are off to the right (west) as you come into the campground. It is heavily treed with a few open spots. In fact, when you arrive, they tell you which sites which are open and would be good for satellite. Our site was mostly level but some sites might pose a challenge. The utilities worked fine. There was a picnic table ( please bring a table cloth - the tables are old) and a fire pit at each site. The bathrooms were extremely clean (something I've come to expect from TT), the rangers very friendly, there were several large grassy areas for kids to play on. There are 3 pickle ball courts. There is a rocky beach to walk on. The speed limit is 5 mph and why people go faster than this in a campground with lots of kids is beyond me. - swike

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

Small campground with yurts, RV sites and tent camping. Some sites don't have water. On bluff, steep walk to beach, parking available at beach. Nice Puget Sound beach, rocky shore, fairly urban. Host had minimal presence but clean, and quiet after 10 pm. - Llucky10
Aug 2010 - $28.00
Small park on Puget Sound Waterfront site. No waterfront campsites. One restroom for the park. Water at spigots in 3-4 locations around park. Electric connections are located such that at back-in sites electric is on the left, while pull through sites electric is on the right. This is the reverse of all campgrounds we have ever been to. If you select this park, bring very long extra extension cords. Excellent park for tents. Some Yurts are available. Park ranger service is inattentive due to budget cuts. Camp host was not visibly present. - jake blake

Very nice county park. The rangers patrol regularly and make sure everything is as it should be. The sites are very spacious and there are a lot of trees to provide shade. The water is a short but rigorous hike downhill where there is a very nice park for walking the dog or sitting by the shore. The beach is rocky. Overall we enjoyed this campground very much. - gary855

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

We stayed here August of 2018 in a class A motohome. This park should score five stars except it is run by poor managers. Pro: Clean, quiet, no run down units and excellent WiFi. Con: Bate and switch reservations, does not honor their web site prices, over priced at $58/night (web sites says $40) monthly at $1,450.00 (web site says $650), arrogant and deceitful managers. We found the residents helpful and friendly, but were nervous about upsetting the managers and getting asked to leave. We would liked to have stayed a month but were glad to just get out. - Dixster

The woman running the park is very rude. The WiFi was terrible. There were some docks that were fun to go on, if you could get over the high possibility that there will be a board that'll fall through and you'll plummet into the water. We stayed one night and had to leave. No refunds, even if there's an emergency! - rvlover653

The park itself is a nice park and has a great location. The manager however is not a friendly person and has of recently took to shouting at the guests and making terrible comments. She has recently been charging guests for alleged speeding violations in the park. The park has amenities such as a community building with washers and dryers and a dayroom. You have to get your own change as the manager will not provide it. The dayroom has pretty much been off limits. There has been some guests who enjoy drinking excessively and making a lot of noise during quiet hours along with a member of the park staff. Not much activity goes on here unless you bring it yourself. - Sparkymarv

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

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

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
Sep 2016 - $15.00
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

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
Jun 2018 - $33.00
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
