Campground Reviews

Aug 26, 2015
This was by far the worse KOA that we have stayed in. The people at the desk are DUMB! We were quoted $56.00 with our discount card and when we arrived it was $60.00. They said they included cable for the extra money. The cable has 8 channels. The WiFi does not work. We were stacked like sardines. We had to knock at 4 guests doors to make them move their vehicles, so that we could leave. BAD! BAD

The pool was closed and we have chosen this campground off the pool. The employees did not know a lot, they can't help you with any question.

Great access to public transit into Seattle. Very tight campground. Back end of our trailer side swiped ( slightly) the RV across the isle when we pulled in, so be careful. Had to park tow vehicle in excess parking because sites are so small.

Had trouble with damage to my awning, discovered it at the camp. wonderful maintenance man helped me fix it so I could drive my rv down the road to get home. So thankful!

Campground was clean and very family orientated but the staff could put a smile on their faces. Didn't even get a hi welcome to our campground or how may I help you
Aug 25, 2015
Over crowded, not very clean and the smell of sewer gas in the air. A poor experience made worse by the cost, over $60/night. Would not stay here again.

Very cramped, no parking,not worth the $$

Great!!!

Overpriced plus a fee for each dog. No nearby restaurant or grocery. Crowded small spaces. No ventilation in restroom. Wet floors & no rubber mats in shower. Mildew on bottom of shower curtain. Staff was courteous. Breakfast room served good food, but could not give a receipt.

helpful person at check-in. Easy hook-ups and clean bathrooms. Good breakfast on week-end mornings. Good price!

Stay went well! Would stay here again but feel that some upgrading would be good.
Aug 24, 2015
The check in was slow, bc there were lots of people checking in and only one lady helping. Good facilities, small sites, nice entertainment, clean showers.
Aug 24, 2015
Felt the spaces were crowded. The staff was wonderful and the pool was great!

We arrived and were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. The amenities such as the pool, laundry and office were suitable. The camping sites are very close to each other. Probably the minimum allowed. The staff kept the place clean which is a plus. The only thing we really didn't care for was several campers were to our observation long term or resident campers.

Was only there for 1 night but the showers in particular were in disrepair and had mildewy curtains. All else was fine and the staff in particular were helpful and friendly.

needing major upgrades
Aug 22, 2015
Kids really enjoy. We find the site a little small since our left neighbor was not on a specific site. You probably trying to accommodate the most people possible but it has impact on the space... Although that, these neighbors were very quiet and nice.

Great

pratique pour se rendre à Seattle par le bus et le métro.petit déjeuner proposé.sanitaire à code, c'est sécurisant. beaucoup de bruit de fond autoroutier et aérien à partir de 5 ou 6 h du matin, gênant si l'on a pas de bouchons d'oreilles et même avec.

Neighbour (site 84) seemed to be a permanent resident with two fairly large dogs who were shut in the trailer the majority of the day. Also old couch outside. The dogs were not really walked at all, only let out for bathroom breaks and then shuttered back in the trailer. It was deplorable.
Aug 20, 2015
This is a tightly packed CG. The best thing it has going for it, is the proximity to Seattle and good for day trips. This is not a place to get away.
Aug 20, 2015
Spaces were small. No place for tow vehicles.

Typically, I've found KOA's to be a good value. Not this one. I pull a 25' Airstream with an F250. The sites were so cramped, it couldn't accomodate the truck and the camper. People on both sides of me had the same issue. On a positive note, the office staff were pleasant.
Aug 19, 2015
Very crowded and disorganized. The WiFi was awful and of no use. There was no parking for my truck on my trailer site and my RV is only 26'. It was very quiet at night but I think we were lucky based on other comments. Not your typical KOA.

This park is not for big rigs. I made reservation on line for a backend sight big enough for our 38 ft. fifth wheel when we got there they gave us a pull through which just barely was enough for our camper. Had to park tow vehicle a block away. This park is not worth $64.00 a night. The park is false advertisement.

The restroomes are dirty. My dump pipeline (hohe) was stolen!!
Aug 18, 2015
It was so crowded they let people park everywhere even if it wasn't a campsite.
Aug 18, 2015
Disgustingly filthy restrooms. Completely mismanaged in that permanent live-in tenters are everywhere and large rv's are stuffed into tiny spaces. Swarms of Mosquitos & 24 hr traffic noise
Aug 18, 2015
Surprisingly quiet for as full as it was. Staff was cordial and helpful.
Aug 18, 2015
This place is just a glorified parking lot with picnic tables. The spots are so narrow that if two rigs both open their slideouts, you probably won't be able to walk between them. But it's really the only place for miles so if you have to be here, you deal with it.
Aug 18, 2015
The trailers were too close to each other that we could hear their conversations. The sewer dump for trailer next to us is right next to our picnic table. Should at least have a covered box. The front desk person (was wearing a blue bandana) did not acknowledge me. The employees looked a little disheveled with dirty shirts. Didn't seem to take pride in where they worked.
Aug 18, 2015
The campground is very crowded and spots are extremely tight. Needs more reguar maintaince and sites need more gravel or paving. It was very dusty. Good location to local transportation.

Unfortunately, I felt scammed. Paying close to 70$ to spend a night in a parking lot, and that was Luxury compared to the tent sites who were packed so tight from far it looked like a field is bubble rap. Never again Tacoma
Aug 17, 2015
For a very busy time of year & limited facilities in the area these people did a great job of keeping everyone happy our back in site had nothing behind us for as far as we could see great for us prairie dwellers

When we checked in they had us in the wrong site. I booked a 30amp site and they tried putting us in a 50amp. They assigned us to a 30amp and when we got there someone else was already in the site. we took the kids to the toys and there is people living in tents next to the playground. There was trash all over the playground the grass around the community fire pit was full of tents.
Aug 17, 2015
Overcrowded to the point of tripping over cords running to tents on the office lawn. Bathrooms need to be repaired. With the huge number of tent campers, the bathrooms were in a constant state of disarray. On a positive note, the activities were wonderful, the laundry room was well appointed, and the location is perfect for easy access to I-5.
Aug 17, 2015
No one answered the phone so it went to voice mail but all mail boxes were full. NO way to leave a message. Upon arrival, there were RV's camping where we were to park to register. The spaces were so close together, it was extremely difficult to get rigs in and out. There were tent campers on every inch of grass. Internet was a joke.
Aug 17, 2015
The site was very small and hard to get into even though we booked it with specific measurements of our trailer. All campers around us had a hard time getting into their spot. We liked the movie in the park with popcorn. Bathrooms were not very clean. An okay spot, very very busy.
Aug 17, 2015
Staff was friendly, food was great, facilities were clean. Enjoyed our stay.
Aug 17, 2015
Thanks
Aug 17, 2015
sites are very cramped,tenting site had no grass and was just dirt, it was clean but for the price would have chosen elsewhere
Aug 17, 2015
We asked to change to a site that was not taken yet but was not allowed, was told it had been reserved. We were not given a site # when I made the reservation. Why was the other customer given this option? or was the staff lying?
Aug 17, 2015
I always stay there when I bring my trailer to Seattle. I can reserve on line for the dates I want..it's very convienient.
Aug 16, 2015
Sites are crammed together, open your awning and touch your neighbor. Obviously built to maximize profit, most sites had RV's that were to long for the site making already skinny roads worse. Staff was not helpful, when I complained about the RV next to me running their generator next to my bedroom I was told that it wasn't too loud and I would just have to put up with it. Worst KOA ever.
Aug 16, 2015
Great location. Staff were courteous and helpful. The park is very compact and crowded but hey it's Seattle. Great bus and train connection to downtown. Quiet bike trails along the river.
