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 is a large Thousand Trails campground. It had a kids room, adults room, heated pool, dog area (gated), and playground. Also we heard of planned activities for kids but did not participate. It did not have individual fire pits but you could rent a portable fire pit for $5/day. Since it is a Thousand Trails (member campground), it looked like quite a few seasonal and/or permanent residents, mainly looking like a retirement community, although we talked to a few families that also lived there full time (eg: more of a trailer park than RV campground). No cellular service with Sprint, Canadian TV only. They seemed to enforce very strict rules about the park. It's very quiet and clean. - Tess85

Friends had recommended that we stay in Phase 2, which we did - sites in phase 1 have 4 rigs sharing one utility area, but there are trees in phase 1 which would probably be desirable if it was warmer. The pull-throughs in phase 2 have the utilities between two rigs so if it was full and if you both have slide-outs, you could probably easily share conversation and maybe coffee between rigs. Verizon service was good. Phase 2 was going to be closing on October 1 when they enter limited services for the winter. Our nightly rate was $0 with Thousand Trails Family Courtesy card. - pattic777

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 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

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

Paid to stay for 2 nights in 15 amp spot, power only as our hired RV couldn't use water in the winter. Drive in and find a permanent resident had parked in our spot (the place is very crowded and the permanent residents park where ever they want) so we had to get the kid running it to ring them as they wouldn't answer the door to move their car, this took 20 min!! Hook up only to have the power trip out and the kid managing the place at the time (family run business) couldn't reset power so offered us a different spot instead which was more expensive. Settle in for the night, all good or so we thought. Next day we went out on a drive and when we stopped I went to get somethings out of the lockable compartment under the rear of the RV only to find that someone during the night had tried to break in and steal our luggage!!! Go back to RV park looking to get a refund and leave as we no longer felt safe there to which I get a reply of " we don't do refunds" so I ask the kid if he could ring his dad as I wanted to talk to the owner of the place to which I get the reply of " we have not had any problem in the park regarding theft until you turned up and as far as I'm concerned you are the problem" . So basically if you stay at this place expect to have your stuff stolen from the permanent residents and don't expect a refund as the management doesn't give two hoots about you, only care about the long term tenants who give them money regularly. - Ausraven

If you're thinking about staying here, don't! (Unless you're desperate, like we were waiting for two weeks to get into our new home.) The highway is 100 yards away, so very noisy and ground shook like a bowl of jello, every time a big rig went by. No trees to block the wind, gravel roads, so felt like being in a dust storm most of the time, but not enough wind to keep the flies and mosquitoes away. No picnic tables or fire pits. An out of town friend who knew we were staying there, tried to get a spot in the park for a couple nights, as she was passing through. The Manager told her that the park was full, even though there were three full service spots empty that night and for a few days following, including the spot right beside us. The WiFi worked intermittently for the first day, but was completely down for the next 36 hours. The 'Cable TV' gave us three channels, two of Global BC and one snow. We gave up on that and got our own from the local cable company. There was little to no order in the park when it came to driving speeds, or parking. People (mostly the permanent residents) continually drove through open spots, (which caused more dust for RV'ers trying to enjoy being outside) instead of following the drive ways and parked where ever it suited them, so that vehicles were constantly having to back up and turn around to get out of the park. As a whole, it was a completely disappointing experience. - Wayne Carignan

This is a park I would choose not to go back to. Sandwiched in with rigs of various makes, sizes, age and condition. Site was to small and we stuck out into the traffic lanes. Stoped here on way to Alaska, but stayed at a much nicer park just a few miles down the road on the way back. - Mar-Bob

This park has 5 different campgrounds, 4 for individuals and 1 for groups. It also has several day use areas and trailheads. We stayed at Delta Grove campground in site D33. It was a gravel back-in and due to down slope, leveling was required. The site had a picnic table and fire ring which were maintained and clean. Narrow park roads and many short sites make this campground off limits for big rigs. Our site had waterfront access and was near the dumpster and recycle bottle and can bin. Lots of mature trees that gave privacy from adjacent sites. No OTA TV and probably no satellite TV as well due to the trees. It got noisy at times from passing boats and nearby campsites. I would hate to be here in the summer peak season. - Onemoretrail

We recently stayed three nights during the week in the Delta Grove Campground where only 25% of the sites were occupied. Our site was on the lake and large enough to accommodate our 23' trailer and truck. We did not have a reservation so experienced a strange check-in procedure. When we entered the park and passed the main gate house there was no sign stating we should stop and register so we assumed we would choose a vacant site and someone would come to collect our fees. When we got to the campground there was a sign stating we had to register at the gate house. So back we go 2 km to register. Our neighbour also experienced this same confusion. The other annoyance we encountered was power boats with huge audio systems blasting away on the lake. These were so loud they seemed to be in our camp site. We stayed at this campground in a travel trailer and would return again in either May, early June, or September. - Living Skies

My wife and I stayed at this camp site with our small travel trailer for 5 days and loved it. The site itself was excellent; easy to back the trailer into; very green with trees all around; picnic table; not far from the lake. Cozy spot. We plan on going back. - Lewis C

The laundry room was not good. Floor and walls need cleaning. One washer doesn't work well. Toilets are clean- but the bathroom is not at the front. Back showers and bathrooms okay. We liked our site at the end. Internet was not good at all. Staff at front were very obliging and pleasant. - Snooker2

Most of those 193 sites are seasonal and the pull through sites where we were put were grass that was very un-level. The sites were so tight together that our neighbors sewer was in our sitting area, nice! There was one water hookup post per two sites so you better have a long hose. We were given the evil eye by several of the seasonal campers with one even spitting at me after he gave me a dirty look. Even though they have rules no one was enforcing them;our neighbors were up drinking and carrying on till the wee hours and judging by the noise around us it was a common occurrence. Bottom line we will not stay there again, even though the staff was fine, we'll stay elsewhere, next time we are in Chilliwack. - ashtree

This was a disappointment. We were visiting family with two fifth wheels and they insisted on a reservation cost of $4.00 for each of us for staying a week. If we didn't have to be there, we wouldn't have. It was okay. Have to pay extra for WI-FI and for dogs. Nickel and dime - Snooker2

First, we paid for a "waterfront" site and it was "lake view" - two other campsites and a parking lot between us and the lake.
WiFi was non-existent: we had to pay $2.00 for it, had to go to the washroom building to use it, and were told we couldn't use YouTube, Netflix, etc.
Noise was terrible: High-volume Gangsta-rap (complete with the usual swearing) at 10:30 at night. It DID quiet down after 11:00 pm. - druid

We stayed for three nights. The sites are just big enough for 30'RV with slides uncoupled. Not much room for parking it between trailers. Guests have to park at the gate due to limited room for vehicles and there is a cost of $10 per vehicle of visitors. The washrooms and showers were semi clean. The other campers were very friendly and helpful. Overall enjoyed the experience but will look other options next time. - Glenn Nic

Large park, mostly shaded by high trees (lakeside pitches were more open. Efficient but not particularly friendly reception, pitch level with fire pit with full service hookup. Site was closing down for the season so very empty when we got there, but I guess for a holiday site it will be good but the trees make it very gloomy (probably welcome sunshade in high summer!) We only did an overnight here, hence limited review. - PhilbyUK

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
