My youngest son wakes up in the middle of the night and comes to my bed. How do I stop him from doing this without him waking everyone in the house up?

Is he fully awake when he does this?

Sometimes yes and sometimes no.

If he is aware that he is awake then he can make a decision on wether or not to go to your room. Try to get a toy or something that he really wants and say that he has to stay in his room "x" amount of nights in a row to get the toy. (You may want to set mini goals with smaller toys to start out)

I am ready to have my bed back. He kicks me and knees me all through the night. So I really want him to start sleeping through the night in his bed.

I put a sleeping bag on the floor next to my bed and my kids were allowed to sleep there. They eventually got tired of sleeping on the floor.

I would either let him sleep in your floor or keep redirecting him back to bed. He will eventually (hopefully!) get the hint.  Good luck!

My oldest went through this at that age. I got so fed up I asked his doc. He was waking every night at the same time and she told me he was probably hungry. She suggested giving him a low sugar, high protein MEAL about an hour before bedtime. Not a snack, but basically a second dinner. I tried it and it worked the first night, and aside from when he is sick, we haven't had a problem since. You won't have to do it forever, just until the growth spurt is over. For my son it lasted close to 2 months, and now he is sleeping well without the second dinner.
