Good and warm welcome
Aug 15, 2015
We camped among permanent locals in run Down campers and homeless people living in tents. The bathrooms and laundry were not clean.
Aug 15, 2015
not where we planed to stay and accommodations were slim.

The campground looked like a homeless camp with people and tents on the main grassy area. the spots are to small and close together to handle the big rvs. the park should be cleaned up and not allow so many full time residents. The location to Seattle was the only thing good about the park. Our reservation was not done correctly and we didn't get the premium spot that the reservation center assign

Poorly managed. Not enough 50A sites. Put 30Amp units in 50Amp because they do not want to pay for cable.

I had a two night reservation, but the space assigned me was already occupied. So, I had to take a lower quality space in order to not relocate. The front desk person was nice, but it was not a good situation.

Good location. Spots a bit tight for the price. Camping overflow in the common area behind the registration office gave the place a 'refugee camp' look and feel. Wi-Fi is terrible, was not able to sign on at any time of the day.

I made a reservation in April for a 38 foot motor home with 50a hookup! When I arrived 4 months later I had slot that the motor home did not fit so couldn't get out until Monday at 10:00a and had a 30 amp service!! The worst I have ever been treated by KOA.

Mosquito heaven. Small and dirty, but the only game in town and they know it. Total mismanagement, we were woken up at 10:30 pm by park workers escorting a new arrival right next to us, who had to set up loudly of course. Filthy restrooms, broken plumbing, lip service cleaning, did I mention mosquitos?

When we want to enjoy Seattle we always stay at this KOA. Easy access to downtown fun. The pool is great. The wifi could be better and car parking is limited, but we will definitely return.

Poor customer service, we did not get the site we requested online, over crowded and small campsites. The good part was a nice pool and good location.

overpriced for being jammed into the campground. I stayed at a Good Sam which had plenty of room and we didn't feel like we were on top of other guests. Their fee was $39.00 while this KOA was $60.

Terrific staff. Helpful and friendly, especially dark haired young lady with glasses at desk. Awesome service.

The condition of the site we were in was less than satisfactory.No picnic table at our site,had to "borrow"one from another site near. The condition of the site itself was atrocious! It had not been cleaned or raked at all. There were bottlecaps, cigarette butts, some broken glass and paper garbage all along the asphalt pad and grass. lots of guys on golf carts, but no cleaning!

We travel extensively in a 40' Class A Coach this KOA is like a 3rd World Country. Having "KOA" associated with this park is not a plus. On top of everything else the folks running it are very disorganized.

We usually enjoy KOAs when we need a place to stop for the night, but this one was so packed to the brim it didn't feel like camping. Our tent site didn't have much room for our 2-person backpacking tent, and there was a streetlight-like lamp right next to it that shone in our tent all night. The upside is the showers were clean and we were able to walk 2 minutes to an open-space park.

Very clean and friendly. However,very crowded--did not care for septic drain under out picnic table--no place else to put the table due to tightness of spaces.
Aug 12, 2015
The sites are way too narrow for todays rvs with pop outs
Aug 12, 2015
This KOA was jam packed, we were given a deluxe ( what a joke ) 30 amp spot ( we reserved a 50) months ahead with a broken down picnic table and told that's all they had! Lousy time...
Aug 12, 2015
Everything was very good. Except it is very tight with parking.

An OK place to stay. Strength is its proximity to attractions of the Seattle-area. Car and transit connection are great. Also decent for young kids, with a small pool, ice cream, evening movies, etc. On the flip side, sites were tiny, and road noise was crazy! It's on a major trucking route, and road noise starts early. Not a relaxing place to lounge around the campsite!

Clean and friendly

The sites are very small. Being there felt very crowded. Some clients (including us ) had to move their cars from their site in order to open space, for clients leaving the campground, to manouvre their RV. Part of the grass area in the lawn outside the main office had multiple tents set up. All together gave a feeling of over crowding and of cheap tourism not found in other campgrounds.

I love love love this KOA. We go every year for the NHRA drag races. I love the family atmosphere of this KOA, the pool was wonderful, but my only negative would be all of the tent campers that were in the grass area where the nightly movie was played and the ice cream social. Kind of gross....

First off if you don't mind condo camping this will be right up your alley. It is very crowded!! Pretty bad when you walk out your door to sit & the neighbors sewer hose is 3 feet away. Dead grass, noisy street & very pricey. We paid to "lock in " our spot & was moved. When asked about it I was told that wasn't true. 😁
Aug 11, 2015
The camp ground was clean and quite, the staff was helpful and kind. The spots are very close together, but I guess that is to be expected at this type of camping facility. All in all it was a good stay.

We usually stay with you when we come to the races. We found things not so good this time. The washrooms were not very clean and the check in service was very slow. There were long lineups and only one person on the counter for checking in and buying anything at store. The camp spots have become to small for the size of units now. Always had to ask neighbors to move their vehicles to get out.

There aren't any other RV parks near Seattle so you're stuck but this park would not be a place I would return to by choice. The sites are too small for today's rigs. I had to back into my pull through spot & nearly hit several rigs trying to get out. The staff are friendly & facilities are clean but I don't like having another rig less than 2 feet from my door. Very noisy (traffic) too.

Older campground with very narrow spots. You will need to get as close to the power/water pedestal as you can in order to have room for your awning and picnic table. Staff were friendly but service is a bit slow. Nice trees and close to river trail and city activities. Not a bad place to stay if you travel for work and need something close by.

Safe and reasonably quiet for a city. Really packed in, but not too many choices for camping in Seattle. Staff were pleasant. Great location for airport, beach, Mariners, Ikea, etc. Just enough activities for the grandkids to keep them busy when we weren't out and about. Thanks!

Street & spaces were too narrow. It appeared to be a zoo at times. Had a neighbor who kept moving the picnic table next to my trailer blocking entry and exit to my trailer causing me to injure my leg while returning after dark.

This was th worst koa we've stayed in. Bathrooms were not cleaned and there was raw sewage dumped in our site. Gross. Way over full campground as well.
Aug 10, 2015
The KOA was well looked after. The sites were much smaller and closer to one another than any other campground we stay at. Made it tricky to pull in and out of.We spent very little time at the campground so we did not use any of the amenities like the pool, games movie night etc.
Aug 10, 2015
I cant believe I paid 50$ a night to be stuffed into a sardine can! I have never been to a campsite so small. The staff we dealt with were all very friendly, but unfortunately I will not return.
Aug 10, 2015
somewhat cramped, small spaces
Aug 10, 2015
Very crowded, noisy and expensive. Our reservation was clear and we were placed in a site that was too small. Even after we moved the site was extremely cramped. We had to go back and change it with the staff who did not appear to be knowledgeable. The store was out of most basic items such as milk. There were tents all over the lawn. Again crowded. We left a day early.
Aug 10, 2015
Never stay at a KOA again. No dependable WiFi, extremely small spots, no cable TV and no help from KOA personal, power goes off unexpectedly, way overcrowded. Extremely high priced for a undersized park. Putting 40' units in spots made for a 25'. Everyone I talked with, felt exactly like me.
Aug 10, 2015
The bathrooms were not clean. When the campground is this full, once a day cleaning is insufficient. Sites are very narrow and too close together. Because of insufficient parking space at the campsites, arriving and departing is very difficult. I would not return.
Aug 10, 2015
a little cramped
Aug 10, 2015
The place was un kept - TOO close camp sties. - too many people in such a small space. Tents set up on lawns that were not tent sites. This place was nothing like other KOA's we have stayed at before. We don't plan on staying ther again.

Was more like a trailer park than a KOA. Seriously disappointed in the campground and will not recommend to anyone.
Aug 09, 2015
Staff was lovely and it was easy to take public transportation to Seattle but the place is not big rig friendly. We could not get 50 amp and we made reservations months ahead. Spots are so small you can barely get in and out. Parked car on other side of park because no room for car. Bathrooms were inadequate as well
Aug 09, 2015
Very tight rv spaces. We had to back out of our "pull through" space in order to leave because other trucks that couldn't fit were blocking the road. We even moved the picnic table so that our neighbors could fit their motorhome in better to reach their connections. Too close for comfort.
Aug 09, 2015
they put big rigs in little spaces not enough room for any body to get in or out people have to move there rv so other vehicles can get out

The staff was very friendly. The accommodations were small with no trees or landscaping to give the intimacy I associate with camping. I compared it to a small roach motel with paper thin walls.
