Washington has long been a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts from across North America. This Pacific Northwest paradise houses a ton of options for RVers of all types and those RVers need places to stay. From the bustle of Seattle to a quick border hop to our neighbors to the north, Washington has long brought excitement and adventure to travelers, no matter what corner of the state they visit.
We’ve put together the best five RV parks and campgrounds in The Evergreen State for you to rely on during your travels in the Pacific Northwest.
Spokane RV Resort: Deer Park
This beauty in eastern Washington is a resort and with activities to boot. All RV sites at Spokane RV Resort come with full utility hookups, and there’s even big rig specific sites with extra-large patios. The restrooms and showers are spic and span and the laundromat host several washers and dryers, so you don’t have to worry about waiting in line. You have a large rec hall with exercise equipment and even a dance floor. If your rig is looking dingy, have it washed and waxed onsite while you’re out enjoying the area.
It’ll be hard to leave the park with the free nine-hole mini golf course, the bocce call area, and two dog runs but the local area is full of fun as well. For starters, the park is right next to a beautiful 18-hole golf course. We recommend you visit Spokane to view the meticulously groomed Manito Park, take a hike on the Centennial Trail or check out Riverside State Park.
Icicle River RV Park: Leavenworth
Icicle River RV Park has been around since 1946, so they’re apparently doing something right. Oh right, their location, amenities, and facilities. You have your choice of full utility hookups or water and electric for a few dollars less. There are bathrooms, hot showers, laundry facilities all ready to rinse you off after a day in the rugged wilderness. This well-manicured park also offers plenty of picnic tables and group pavilions where you can relax and recap your day.
Leavenworth is a resort town that is modeled after Bavarian towns and oozing with charm. There are several wonderful places to eat, shop or walk around and admire the buildings if you can make it during Autumn for one of the best Oktoberfest celebrations you’ll ever be a part of. The real reason you choose Icicle River RV Park is for its distance to the wilderness of central Washington. You are on the doorstep of the Icicle River, the Wenatchee River, and Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest.
Andersen’s RV Park: Long Beach
This coastal RV park is set up for you watch the sun rise and set in beautiful Long Beach, Washington. Andersen’s RV Park also has many facilities and amenities to take care of you while you’re out gazing. 60 individual RV sites are outfitted with full utility hookups along with cable TV and Wi-Fi. Hot showers and laundry facilities will clean you up after a long day on the beach. There’s a hospitality hall for groups, picnic tables at all sites, fish, and clam cleaning stations for your day’s catch, a camp store and playgrounds for the little ones.
Long Beach has a terrific location for forays into the different area. You have Long Beach itself right on the Pacific coast along with Long Island and the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge as well as the Lewis and Clark National Wildlife Refuge. We doubt you’ll be disappointed at Cape Disappointment State Park with its crashing waves and lighthouse. If the northern Pacific is for you, Andersen’s is your place.
Mounthaven Resort: Ashford
One of the most defining sights in Washington is Mt. Rainier, and Mounthaven Resort is your home for Rainier adventures. This shaded campground provides you with full utility hookups as well as Wi-Fi access. The showers, restrooms, and laundry facilities are located within the central area of the park and ready for your use. The entire site is surrounded by towering cedars, maples, and alders and it’s not too uncommon to spot wildlife right from your site.
Mounthaven is only a half mile from the entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park. Mt. Rainier National Park is crisscrossed by more 300 miles of hiking trails and the 14,000+ plus peak of Mt. Rainier if you think you’re ready to take it on. Those with mobility issues can see the park through a drive, but we recommend taking the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad for a better experience. You’re also nearby the Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, Pioneer Farm Museum, and the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park.
Elwha Dam RV Park: Port Angeles
Elwha Dam RV Park jokingly refers to itself as the “Best RV Park next to a Dam Site,” but this is a great park for local access to Washington’s best attractions. RV sites come with full utility hookups along with free Wi-Fi throughout the park. The restrooms, showers and laundry facilities are kept clean and sparkling for your enjoyment. A camp store supplies you with firewood, propane, and some RV parts. The whole campground is shaded by massive trees and patrolled by security 24/7.
The Port Angeles area is home to some spectacular sights and sounds. Olympic National Park is nearby and open for hiking, biking, or scenic drives with its coastal areas and dense old growth forests. Some of the best attractions in Olympic include Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent, the Sol Duc region, Madison Falls, and the Elwha River. It’ll be difficult to run out things to do at Olympic National Park.
Washington is filled with beautiful peaks, mountain ranges and waterfront destinations to find everything you’d want to visit during an RVer’s adventures.
