Traveling thru Seattle. Looking for suggestions on an RV Park while we tour the area. Thanks.

Seattle is not RV friendly. If you are touring the south side of Seattle, then the KOA in Kent (this coming from a guy who dislikes KOA) is the best choice. If playing on the north side, then Lake Pleasant (nice park) is the place.

If you don't mind staying just out of Seattle, there are a couple places out between Bellevue and Preston. Have never stayed personally, just live in the area, so am aware of them.

If you're open to driving to the train station and riding that into Seattle, or even driving from the south end, there is Kanasket-Palmer State Park out in Ravensdale. About half the sites have power but no water or sewer hook ups. Beautiful area.

If you want to be closer, I would second Lake Pleasant in Bothell.

When we toured Seattle, we stayed at Tall Chief in Fall City, WA. We tried taking the train in but there was just no parking at the train station. Instead we ended up driving into the city the days that we did tourist things. Finding garages tall enough for a 6' 6" dually was a trick, though.

Back in July 2017, we had power issues while there. It was extremely low voltage. I raised a stink and the campground manager ended up visiting me. She thanked me as it was the time of year that Encore starts to figure out their capital expenditures for that winter or the next year. She was hoping that my hubbub was enough to get some money thrown their way for electrical improvements. Let me tell you, that was NOT how I saw that conversation going!

I bought an AutoFormer while there.

I stayed at that park two years ago and it is the worst KOA I have ever stayed and I stay in a lot of KOA's. The sites are very narrow and not long or wide enough for you to park your TV. The price was $60 or so. I stayed there mostly because it was near a friend who lives in Kent. I will never stay there again. Wal-Mart is a better choice.

Last Summer we stayed at Saltwater State Park. There are no hookups, but it is very close to the water and they do have bathrooms. It was a easy short drive to the light rail that took us in to Seattle. Not you typical KOA campground. Great sunsets over the water from there.

Totally agree I have stayed at both - including a stay of 54 days in Kent helping out our son
