Campground Reviews

Great location. 8-day stay, extended to 10, should have gotten a requested site away from playground. Sites are TOO SMALL. Acquire more property across the street to build premium sites. Would be a gold mine.

it was a poor stay.we were in the tent overflow spot and could hear the road traffic all night long. We will not be staying at this location again

OVERCROWDED, NOISY AND TOO TIGHT FOR RV'S.

This KOA had a terrible location and horrible sites. The price was completely out of the price range that should have been acceptable. They did not enforce any rules that were stated upon entry and consequently vehicles were parked in the roadway, where forbidden. We were unfortunate enough to be a 'big rig' assigned to a small site with a vehicle parked illegally. So, contact me for the rest..

Pros: Good laundry, direct access to a great bike trail, very friendly staff. Cons: close-together sites, narrow roads. All sites were in use; very crowded feeling.

very nice staff, but too far away from Seattle.

We spent three nights at the S/T KOA. Close to everything we wanted to visit in Seattle. Not a Presidential Award winner but perfect for us.

The people were nice, the park was clean. The sites were tiny, the location was noisy, sites were so close you could smell cigarette smoke and sewer dump from your neighbors.

Tim, the fellow who does night security is awesome!! The grounds are a bit cramped and close to the highway, but you are camping! So it just adds to the experience:) we had tons of fun!!

It was our,daughters first time camping. This was perfect so many things to do. And the employees were super nice and helpful. We wil be back soon to stay again. Thanks K.O.A. We had a blast.

Staff friendly and very helpful, accommodations very nice.

Lovely atmosphere. The staff was excellent and at night it felt like you were on the green with ice cream social and movies. We loved it more than we loved Seattle.

Took over 40 minutes to checkin had made reservation months in advance did not get sites as reserved. Campground was so tight no room for car and could not use awning without hitting someone else's motorhome. Picnic tables were literally over the sewer.

This KOA has very tight spaces. We have a 38' Class A with two sidouts. Phone calls were not answered or returned. Best point was proximity to Seattle.

We had a great stay the Seattle KOA is in a great area with easy access to the sights of Seattle. The kids loved the pancake breakfast and the pool

It ws a busy week July 4th- but the back bathrooms were not kept up - no paper towels - no seat covers - dirty messy floors. Even when I told the front desk it didnot get cleaned up. The young prople they had working there seemed to not care. Captive audience not another KOA in the area.

first off i called and talked to sue and it was all set up for us to have 133 for our stay,and she did put a note on our reservation and when we show up there is someone on the site and there would not be leaving until the day we were to depart, we got 122 at the other end of the row and we had to back out on Monday am, due a tent in front of us,hope we get 133 as asked for on 9 Aug 2013

Three faults 1.cost too high. 2.guaranteed one site but were placed in another. 3.two rvs allowed in at midnight-noisy until 1am. Manager was apologetic when told of problems and provided $10/night refund.
Jul 20, 2013
Convenient location, easy access. My kids appreciated the pool and I appreciated the showers. But holy cow it was crowded! Our neighbors - two feet away from us - decided to start watching a (loud) movie at 1:00 in the morning, though they did turn it off when we asked. Too many camp sites too close together!
Jul 20, 2013
The staff is incredibly friendly. There just isn't much to do on the campgrounds. A very basic facility.
Jul 19, 2013
Campsite is good, Toilets and shouwers are clean but the road next to the campsite is extremly busy during the night.

Waited 20 minutes to get checked in. Rate quoted on web site was 60.95 per night. When I checked in, I was charged for our dogs per night plus taxes that made the rate over $71 per night. Your campgrounds are expensive as to value which is why I normally will not stay at KOA campgrounds unless I have no choice. In addition, the spaces were very small

This is a hazardous campground. Extremely crowded. If you put an awning out it will come inches from your neighbors unit. We were there for a week, 2 awnings on RV were damaged, 1 rental car was hit, 1 motorhome mirror was damaged, 1 motorhome bumper damaged! They place large Rv's in short sites so your unit is hanging into the roadways. You have to park your tow vehicle away your unit. Stay away.

A very well kept campground.

Our site had cigarette butts littered throughout. You educate your pet owners, you need to educate your smokers as well. Don't like spending $80 a night and have site littered with cigarettes. Sites are too close together. This isnt camping, it is a parking lot.

Nice location. Very tight for 36' motorhome

Too over crowded! Basically a parking lot.
Jul 17, 2013
The people are great, but the cost for what is there, as well as sites is far too high

Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Beautiful nature reserve behind the campground was great scenery. Great pancake breakfast everyday.

Ocerall very nice but very expensive and did not even include cable
Jul 16, 2013
We have stayed before in another area and it was ok. this time we were crammed in a spot to small for our trailer. We were then told to hook up and move forward 5'. The sewer hook up was too far for my hose to reach. The people that work there are friendly and the park is clean. But it's not worth the price compared to other campgrounds and resorts

Stayed at this campground two weeks. Nice friendly atmosphere and clean campground. Our 38' RV had a very hard time moving about on the narrow roads and tight spaces. Our car was hit by another RV and we had to camp next to a group of meth heads in a ratty RV with 3 wrecks they worked on for a few days. A convenient location

The spaces are too close together. could barely walk between picnic table & next door s slide out.
Jul 16, 2013
These spots are SO close to each other it's not enjoyable. I felt like a sardine in a can- this is NOT camping. Website is misleading- when you chose a spot 'closer to the river, more for extended stay', it's not at all what you think. River across the road. Loved the pool & playground, staff very nice, like the ice cream thing at night. $10 for firepit is money gouging!

Nice facility when in Seattle. Easily catch public transportation to the sights in downtown Seattle. Museum of Flight is only a short drive away. If you are planning a stop here for a visit to downtown and many of the sights plan on no less than four days. The pool was a great end to a hot day sight seeing.
