Campground Reviews

Sep 11, 2014
Our stay at the Seattle KOA was pleasant. It was near downtown Seattle. Only thing we did not like was the cable reception was bad, very fuzzy and few channels. We also did not like having to key in a code to use the washroom. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable stay. Front desk people were very friendly.

Nice, frendly, but the spot are to small and to much noise from the street. Very good playground and conection to the city by the public transport.

Everyone was so nice an very helpful. The park was clean an beautiful. I would come back guaranteed 😊

This is the closest campground to downtown Seattle, so location is the key to this campground. The sites are very poor and everyone is really packed in, so the density creates issues for other parts of the park like restrooms, etc. The staff was always helpful, but I think everything is compromised by too many people in too small of a space.

we had to cut our stay short but the KOA was a nice place to stay. wish the grandkids could have been along to enjoy it with us.

The access roads are too narrow. Sites are too short. The roads and sites need repaving. The location is too close to an industrial zone. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would not recommend this KOA to family or friends unless it was their only option.

Very crowded...tight sites and roads. Vehicles were parked in driving areas because sites were so small. Restrooms were not the cleanest, but the park was so busy, it may not have been possible to keep them clean. Everyone we talked to was friendly and helpful. Best feature was the bus stop right out front. We took public transportation into Seattle...cheap and very convenient.

The staff was awesome. Superclean facilities. The sites were a bit smaller than I am used to, but ample nonetheless. We'll definitely be back.

The only thing we had a problem with is that there were no movies the week- end we stayed { 9/5&6/2014 ]. I do realize that it was the week-end after Labor Day, but it was a hot week-end the kids were looking forward to it.

I had a good stay here, it was close enough to Seattle that I could still go out and do sight seeing. But the bathrooms and showers were disgusting. They were cleaned during the week but not on Fri, Sat or Sun. When the most people are there! My boyfriend said the mens was out of toilet paper and paper towel...

There was a lot of road noise. The sites are Very Small for a 38 ft RV. No place to park the car. Plus=close to Seattle

Morning breakfast facility was dirty and terrible service. Unfriendly staff / cook. Tables were dirty. No not recommend. Park itself is fine.

Abril, at the front desk was very friendly. She is a great asset to your staff

One night during the middle of the night, some unruly teens started a campfire on a vacant sight next to us. It was very disturbing. The rules were not enforced at all in this park. Needed better management.

Well, we live close to this KOA and we like to come here for the pool, bouncy house, ice cream and tie-dye on Labor Day weekend. However! This is the second year in a row we were placed in the overflow tent sites even though we paid for water and electric. This year we were told it was because we booked online. After almost an hour we received an appropriate site

Nice & friendly & handy for town town

I did enjoy my stay but only after I paid more money to move from my campsite that was completely flooded and all my stuff wet to a full hook up site that was dry. My son had a good time except he was looking forward to the movie first night movie started 1.5 hours late next night no one wanted to put it on. So that was upsetting.

Friendly staff, good showers and kid stuff

Clean -and quiet. Only wish you had a few more TV cable hook-ups. thx!! we will be there again.

This year was "ok" the kids still had fun with all the extra activities the campground had going on. I was a little annoyed that they decide not to show a movie one night after telling us it would be outside. Some of the staff were "questionable" and let their families take over the park, smoking everywhere and using banana bikes while paying customers were pushed aside to wait all day.

The location is awful.Does not feel like camping.Its in the middle of an industrial area with nothing around.Its about 25minutes from Seattle.Nothing to do in this park,the spots are too small and the streets too narrow.I could barely pull in my 30 ft RV into my spot & I am a good driver.To get out of my spot was hard as well. Staff was not friendly.Park was not lice looking. No shades around.
Sep 04, 2014
This place is a joke! So crammed in, RIGHT on the hwy & they charge you to use their fire pits! For the amount you pay you should not be charged to use a fire pit. It should be on the web site to bring your own. KOA store WAY over priced, most are cheaper than a mini mart not this one! Worst KOA I have been to, it should not be allowed to have the KOA name!
Sep 04, 2014
The location is great in the Seattle area. Some of the employees are very friendly and others no. There was a store sale outside, which I thought was a little tacky. It looked like a yard sale. Because of convenience we will likely stay again, but would enjoy it more if it was modeled more after the KOA in Astoria/Warrenton.

I don't think it's fair to charge holiday rates on the Tuesday following a holiday

Camp site smaller than a prison cell...could not open my awning with the neighbors slide out extended. Could not pull straight out of the site when leaving....had to back out and turn. Campground too small to safely drive a decent size (25 ft plus) RV through it....will never, never go back. And no fire pit - would have burnt down ours or the neighbors RV anyway as there was no room.

Our tent site was very small and faced the highway. It was extremely noisy from 5am through to 1am in the morning. We booked our site on-line, with the understanding that it was tents only and at the back of the campground near the river, but this was not the site that we received.
Sep 03, 2014
Grossly overpriced, abundant hidden fees. Small, uneven sites. Flooded in rain. Really nothing positive to say about it.
Sep 03, 2014
Need better enternet and cable tv service to all locations
Sep 03, 2014
Only one problem: The RV in the space next to us had a loud TV playing well past 1:30AM. The owner was less than friendly and I could not find a way to reach the campground security to contact the people and have them turn the TV off or at least turn it down. Maybe have a number available to call after hours. Every thing else was great and I will stay there again next year.

We were in the front row, too close to our neighbour. The traffic noise was constant. Our site was messy with pine cones. Impressed with the activities for children. We were there on the long weekend so they used all the space they had.
Sep 03, 2014
We had a wonderful stay. Campground was clean and well maintained. Close enough to Seattle to get to siteseeing. Staff was helpful with tours and info on things to see and do. Enjoyed the ice cream social nightly and all-you-can-eat pancakes each morning. Go there. You will enjoy it too.
Sep 03, 2014
The good: it's a great place for kids. The bad: it's over - priced. The ugly: prepare for extremely small sites in which you are packed door to door with your neighbors. So close that we couldn't extend our awning.

Two of our three night stay there was vehicles arriving into the wee hours of the night some playing loud music as they drive in. Our site was right near the bouncy castle and we had to listen to screaming children all day long. Our site had huge puddles after it rained creating mud. Some other sites may have been better but site 65 is terrible.

This KOA is very...very tight for parking and leaving. RV's packed in like sardines.

Will not camp in your campground again. We were packed in like sardines. Cars in driveway no room to get out. Very dirty and dusty.
Sep 02, 2014
This KOA was terrible. The spaces are very cramped. The park allowed Tenters to pitch their tents in the common areas. The tenters took over the gazebo, and "Community" firepit, and even allowed them to camp in the lawn next to the pool. The park was dirty and outdated. We arrived to find a pair of underwear on the ground next to the cable box. The spaces are small and cramped.
Sep 02, 2014
The Seattle KOA was just as advertised, but our reservation was accidentally cancelled by a staff member while we were camping there on a busy holiday weekend. Three days into our stay I received a phone call and was told we were going to be towed. Mistakes happen, but the staff was so quick to blame the customer without asking any questions, and they didn't apologize. Won't stay there again.
Sep 02, 2014
It looked like the employees had their kids hanging around the campground all day and night. If so, they were a pain and made the common areas crowded. Lots of cig butts.

Bathrooms can be improved. Faulty black water connection created a problem.
