Heading to Seattle area in a few weeks. Looking for a big rig friendly park. Not finding anything on Good Sam or the RV park review site. KOA got terrible reviews. We are 43 foot and tow a car. We do not need any "extras" (pool, mini golf, etc.), just looking for decent sized sites, like nice and quiet, etc. Any recommendations?
As has been noted, there is Lake Pleasant in Bothell. There are a couple of parks in Bellevue but they don't have access for big rigs, I don't believe. There is really nothing in Seattle. We have stayed at the KOA in Kent. Never again.

Lake Pleasant is a nice park, however I would not call it BIG rig friendly. Most sites, not all, are tight and narrow. Those sites that are relatively big are booked well in advance. The last time we stayed there our site was so narrow we could not even extend the awning, and we had a reservation for over 3 months. There is not much to choose from around the Seattle area when it comes to rv parks. Good luck.

There is an RV park near Poulsbo, across the bay from Seattle. We stayed there for about three months a few years ago, in a 32 foot triple slide 5er. I can't think of the name off hand, Eagle Tree, I think.
There was a mobile home park nearby that had RV sites, as well.
The Bainbridge Ferry goes to Seattle, takes about half an hour.
It worked for us!
CAUTION: Don't leave cat or dog food out, the racoons love it!

We stayed in the park in Bellevue. When we first drove in, we decided to only pay for one night instead of the three nights we planned. It was a big parking lot with spaces still marked on the asphalt. After spending one night, it wasn't bad as stay over to see Seattle. We went in and paid for the next two nights. The owners laughed and said many do as we did and then realized it's not a bad park. If you're a big rig, they just give you a couple of spaces together.
We also stayed at the KOA on the next trip to Seattle. It wasn't bad for just overniting while going into Seattle.
