RV Parks in Seattle

I'm putting this on the Alpine Coach Forum because I know there are a lot of Alpine owners in the Seattle area.

We are planning to take an Alaskan Cruise in July, leaving from Seattle, and would like to know of an RV park it would be convenient to leave the rig at while we are away.

Also, if anyone knows of a reliable place in Seattle to board a couple of small dogs during that time, that would be appreciated, too.

I usually spend summers at Fidalgo RV Resort in Anacortes and I know they will have folks leave their coaches there while off on cruises to Alaska. Also there is a great kennel right nearby, Sunnyhill. PM if you want more detail info.

Jerry,

I have a full hookup place beside my house, but it will be in use while some landscaping is being done behind our new house and our neighbor's new house during that time.

Getting close to Seattle is a little tough in an RV park. One good place is the Gig Harbor RV park, where you could stay, drive the toad up to Bremerton and take the ferry to Seattle, and end up right next to the cruise ship; or drive back over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (near where we live) and up to Seattle.

RV Park Reviews :: Gig Harbor, Washington ( WA ) - RV Parks and Campground Reviews

Another option is a good RV park on I-90 near Issaquah, on the east side of Seattle. It's web site is:

Seattle, Snoqulamie, Issaquah RV Park/Campground/Camping - Blue Sky

This second RV park in Issaquah may be easier for you; certainly a little closer but probably more expensive.

I will also ask if the place where we store our motorhome would consider a one week storage for your coach; normally they charge a month. We have a place that is covered and has 30 amp power, along with a dump station and fresh water for filling a tank. If they have a space available, you might want to keep that as an option. It is very secure.

Others in the Seattle area may have a better option; but these are two RV parks and maybe a storage option to consider.

I know that Lake Pleasant RV Park in Bothell has a place where people park their rigs while taking a cruise to Alaska. You might want to check with them - they would probably also know about nearby kennels.

Lake Pleasant RV Park in Bothell

We stayed in Lake Pleasant RV Park in Bothell last summer (during the heat) and although quite crowded, it met our needs to be able to visit Seattle each day and still have a home base a reasonable distance. I grew up in South Western Ontario, between the heat, humidity and the ponds full of frogs and dragon flies, it reminded me of my childhood hunting frogs. I think frogs today are a lost faster then those 40 years ago.

I am not sure what they have for facilities to 'store' and RV other then full service sites.

They have a large parking area in the back on the west side of the park, lots of people park their rigs there when doing the Alaskan cruises. Unless you are parked up on the back row, you might not see it when leaving the park during the day.

There are two places in Seattle that the cruises depart from; 1) Pier 66, no parking around as its downtown water front. 2) Pier 90/91 complex. The P-90/91 has acres and acres of parking on blacktop just north of a bridge called the Magnolia Bridge. During the season many many RV’s are parked during the week’s cruise. It appears to be a secure area from people coming and going. Best thing, it is in the open, so no worries about trees and needles. In addition, at about 5:00 PM the bluff casts a nice shadow over that area.
