Flowing Lake is the 4th Seattle area campground we’ve tried. It’s actually quite far north of Seattle, but it’s where we had the trailer while we stayed in a hotel downtown this week.
We’ve tried the KOA closest to the Airport when I had to fly out of town for work. It left nothing to be desired and we’ve never returned.
We stayed at Tall Chief, east of the city. It was much nicer than the KOA, but again not worth a return visit.
Lake Pleasant in Bothell was our favorite until one time when we didn’t get a spot on the lake and suddenly it felt too expensive for what you got.
Then we discovered Flowing Lake County Park. It’s a bit more north, but since our Seattle time included a hotel, we didn’t mind making the drive. The park is PACKED full of families, but the spaces are so far apart that it’s quite peaceful in our spot.
