Tent Reviews

We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend this campground to our friends and family. Everyone was pleasant, helpful, and accommodating. Great location with access to public transportation to the city or anywhere in Seattle.

Booked a tent site 3 months prior and they put us in the worst one, next to the office, at the end of the row, facing the busy road where trucks were gearing down all night, keeping us awake. Terrible campground! Will NEVER stay here again.

The KOA was great and staff friendly and helpful. It was a busy weekend and I didn't get much sleep because "quiet time" wasn't enforced.

Stay was great except they over booked the place. First night there, the people next to me had blocked the campsite with their car, and had taken the table that was supposed to be in the campsite. Other then that, the stay was great!

Loved our stay at KOA. Staff were EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. Very impressed and will be back. Only 4 stars because we wanted to hop in the pool in the morning before we left, but it was shut down for cleaning and cannot rate the experience. Breakfast was delicious and the staff there friendly as well. Thanks KOA!

Our entire stay was refunded. Long term campers next to our site had two caged pit bulls barking all the time, they had a trailer in a tent site, police came around midnight, took an hour to get them out, trailer stayed. Worst experience ever, obvious drug business, lots of people in and out during our very short stay. Horrible part of our vacation. Fearful in our tent the rest of the night.

We were camping in two tents and the site assigned to us was about 20x20 in the middle of about 16 other 20x20 occupied spaces. There was no picnic table that had been promised and the entire site is on the side of a very busy road with very bright street lights overhead. This was a horrible camping experience.

We enjoyed our stay, having the small dog park available was amazing, since we were traveling with a puppy! The only complaint I have is that we stayed in a tent oveflow area, which didn't even have its own picnic table, but yet we had to pay the full tent price of over $40 a night. It seems that a discount should be given for any night spend in the overflow area. But we did have a nice stay!

Nice campground facilities, nice people. Unfortunately I was in a tent section that was rediculously close and felt like I was in a refuge camp. People running air pumps at 11:30 pm with no quiet hour enforcement

Overall was a good experience. However some of the staff were a little unprofessional/ uninformitive

Tent sites are at the back covered by big trees. It's nice to have the swimming pool. The rental bike need service.
Jul 22, 2014
Loud highway noise all night. Tent sites tiny and very close together. No privacy. Pool was great and movie nights were a nice perk.
Jul 17, 2014
Worst location ever. Sent an email to staff, corporate and on facebook
Jul 16, 2014
check in was a mess, did not know what they were doing. Campground too crowded, very noisey, day and especially road noise at night. far too expensive.

This was a nightmare campground. I booked Sat/Sun for a tent site with water and electric. We got there and was told they overbooked me, and they'd refund my money. I gladly paid $94.30 for a Sat/Sun site w/o electric/water. They still charged me for both sites. I've called several times, left messages, and nobody wants to give my money back. This place has ripped me off.

It was conveniently located near the city with restaurants and attractions within 20 miles. There were lots of activities for kids. Staff was courteous. Pool was undersized for the number of families onsite compared with Anacortes where the large indoor was nearly empty.

The frog sanctuary was great except for the mosquitos. There were a lot of codes for everything, why couldn't they be the same and just change weekly? Service was excellent. Everything was clean. Great stay (tent with electrical)

The sight was dirty , the people next I is just smoked the whole time ! The bathrooms need cleaning . The only bright spot was the couple that made breakfast were wonderful , and made good food.

This was the worst KOA I have ever stayed at and will never stay at one again because of this stay.

Loud morning campers. Very small sites. Seemed like the company has a higher emphasis on profit than value. There is no continental breakfast for free.
Jun 16, 2014
I like the place
Jun 15, 2014
Very friendly and helpful staff. Kids loved the playground. Wish that another camper had not taken a stray dog into the shower with him despite the prominent "No pets in the restrooms" signs.
Jun 11, 2014
I liked that it was very close to the city, and the restrooms were very clean. It's good just as a cheap place to stay near the city (although a bit high priced by koa standards) I did not like the cramped tent lots. Barely had enough room to pull in a car and setup tent and neighbors were too close and noisy.

We were placed in the overflow area. This is right next to the freeway. We asked to move. They placed us in a small spot with mostly gravel ground. There are no fire pits. You can only light a fire in the small bbq high above the ground. Horrible location and poor sites. Staff were not knowledgeable about how to get to the Puyallup Fairgrounds. Said it was an hour away.

The facilities were nice and well taken care of. The staff were very kind. The neighbors were kind of nosy though. Our campsite ground was also kind of hard so putting the stakes in was difficult. Other than that, it was good.
May 27, 2014
Great location and had a great experience with the employees. Holiday weekends are a blast! We are definitely will come back again. Thanks so much for having us!
May 26, 2014
This was my first time camping and I loved it. We only stayed one day but wish we stayed longer. The breakfast menu was amazing and super cheap! They had so many activities for all ages as well. I will be going back :)
May 25, 2014
The surface is way toooo hard to dig into and build a tent. We arrived late and we did not have any notification at the door and therefore no password for the showers and toilets. We loved the breakfast!
May 06, 2014
I forgot to put my bag back in the car as we left for a day in Seattle, but when we got back, it was still there! Nice to know this KOA is safe and clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly! We'll be back! :)

Desperately need camping cabins! It's too rainy not to have them. Other than that a very convenient location.
Sep 24, 2013
Was very nice but not to quiet.
Sep 20, 2013
We had a great time. Enjoyed the showers and laundry. And found it very convenient to have water and electric on a tent site.
Sep 20, 2013
Pretty crowded campground. First site we were set up with was way too close to highway traffic. Second site was better but noisy.
Sep 17, 2013
the site was nice but..... you could thin the trees on the back dark even in daylight. no grass under trees just moss and dirt also showers,bathroom floors, sinks and toilets were FILTHY throughout the entire weekend.never saw evidence that they were cleaned once.paper towel dispenser ran out early saturday never refilled. despite these issues i would return but hope for better next visit

Unbelievably noisy. Traffic noise through the night on the road out front, trash trucks at 5:30am...really not enjoyable and very little sleep was achieved. :-(
Sep 04, 2013
Loud and disruptive due to freeway proximity
