The majestic state of Washington is filled with natural beauty and recreational opportunities for everyone, no matter your age or experience. From the novice who just wants to enjoy the water or wander the woods to the intrepid long-distance hiker, there’s a place for you to enjoy Washington’s expansive forests, beautiful coastlines and rugged mountains. Washington’s cities also have a lot to offer campers, from the rainy urban metropolis of Seattle to sunny Spokane in the east.
If you’re looking for some great Washington RV campsites, Ryan’s RV Town of Everett has the lowdown on a few choice spots scattered throughout the state.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it’ll give you a good jumping-off point to find that new gem you’ll want to return to again and again.
Issaquah Village RV Park (Issaquah, WA)
Less than twenty miles from Seattle is the town of Issaquah, surrounded by the beautiful Cascade Mountains. This year-round RV park has 56 sites with full hookups and room for slide-outs and pull-throughs. Free cable TV and wifi hotspots are available, along with a 24-hour coin laundry service. Restrooms and showers are available on-site, along with a few fun amenities like a kids’ playground with tetherball and horseshoes.
The location provides access to incredible natural vistas and maximum relaxation potential with its proximity to a variety of parks and attractions. Lake Sammamish is nearby, with its nearly 7000-foot high waterfall and streams full of salmon. You can also easily access Snoqualmie Pass and the famous Snoqualmie Falls, featured in the opening sequence of the TV show Twin Peaks. Seattle isn’t far away if you find yourself craving some urban adventures.
Columbia Sun RV Resort (Kennewick, WA)
Located in Kennewick near the confluence of the Columbia, Yakima and Snake rivers, this park boasts 145 full hookup RV sites, with 70 specifically made to handle big rigs. The owner-operated park has a heated pool, a hot tub, private restrooms and showers, three laundry facilities and a camp store with groceries, supplies and gifts. Everything you need is easily accessible, and the interstate nearby means you won’t have to travel back roads to get there.
The city of Kennewick, part of the Tri-Cities area, itself offers plenty of stores like Walmart and Costco so you can further stock up as you’re traveling through the state. The Columbia River cuts through town and the riverside park offers plenty of opportunities for peaceful recreation. Kennewick is nestled within what’s known as the “Heart of Washington Wine Country,” so wine connoisseurs will enjoy their time here with plenty of wine tours available. Between the riverfront recreation opportunities and the entertainment found within the cities of Pasco, Kennewick and Richland, campers will never lack for something to do while staying at this resort.
Spokane RV Resort (Deer Park, WA)
Located just north of Spokane proper in the small town of Deer Park, this resort is filled to the brim with amenities for campers in Eastern Washington. Some of the recreational opportunities on site include a heated swimming pool, hot tub, dog runs for pets, a playground for kids, a 9-hole mini golf course, cable TV with over 60 channels, wifi and a family pavilion for large gatherings. You’ll also find laundry services on-site, bathrooms and showers, exercise equipment, and rig washing and waxing services. You’re only 15 minutes away from Spokane, where shopping and dining options abound.
Eagle Tree RV Park (Poulsbo, WA)
This park is on the famed Olympic Peninsula along the Puget Sound, to the west of Seattle. With 88 RV sites featuring full hookups and pull-through options, there’s plenty of room for visitors to relax and explore. A clubhouse with a kitchen and book exchange, pet-friendly grounds and free wireless internet and cable TV are just a few of the amenities available here.
For urban recreation, Seattle and other cities are accessible via ferries across the sound, allowing you to have a quiet home base from which you can travel and explore the metro area on foot or via public transit. However, the real draw of Eagle Tree is its forested location adjacent to Olympic National Park, where you’ll find mountain vistas and opportunities for hiking, biking, fishing and simply admiring a swath of the pristine sylvan beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
The Driftwood RV Resort & Campground (Copalis Beach, WA)
For beachcombers, you can’t beat the location of the Driftwood RV Resort, nestled right along the middle of Washington’s Pacific Coast. This resort has existed since the 1930s and was purchased by the current owners in 2013, who are constantly refurbishing and improving the campgrounds. There are pull-through sites with hookups available, cable TV and wifi, fire pits with wood and restrooms on site.
The Copalis River is right next to the campsite, and it empties into the ocean to the north, through Griffiths-Priday State Park, a beautiful and relaxing oceanside relaxation spot. Your family is sure to enjoy the beautiful vistas of the ocean as you’re hiking or wandering along the coast here.
