Cape Disappointment State Park is one our favorite spots. Also, in conjunction with the North Cascades Pass Highway, you have to stop at Winthrop and Pearrigan Lake State Park.

One additional thing. When planning route, strongly consider arranging route so that you'll be traveling SOUTH along that beautiful Oregon coast on your return leg. Consider:....there a quite a few turn outs with gorgeous vistas, but, using em when your in an RV and trying to pull into them heading North, when most of them on the left (ocean side of highway), becomes too much trouble particularly on busy traffic days. It's MUCH, MUCH better heading South to enter and exit these wonderful stops. Think about it.

If you want to camp in one of our beautiful state parks,you'd best get out here soon 'cuz the governor is talking about no new funds for the park system and could close as many as 100 out of 119 state parks.

Yeh, if the governor had his way, they would only be open to bicycles.

Go to the Washington State Parks website for campgrounds. It contains a map of each region in the state. If you are planning on coming soon or anytime this summer you will need to book you reservation now. Most popular places in the state are filling up now. If you are planning to come now this site will also tell you what is open and if not when they will open. Any holiday weekend you may not be able to get a spot, ie Grayland, anywhere near a lake or the ocean, or river. If you plan to stay at a private park your chances increase. Just google a place you might like and the campgrounds will come up. I sometimes use Good Sams online map to find private campgrounds

Our governor, Christine Gregoire, is actually trying to come up with some alternative funfing sources for the SP system. She dumped a $5 a day fee a couple of seasons ago, after visit rates dropped almost 30%, in favor of an optional additional $5 on your license tabs. Word is she and the SP heads are now considering a bigger fee, maybe $20 a year It would either be added to the license fee or would be a separate window or body sticker similar to the boat fees now in place. As I understand, it woule be just for RVs.

If I lived in WA., I'd happily fork over the 20 bucks to help keep the parks open. I've been to WA. three times and hopefully for a forth this fall, in the RV this time. You guys sure live in 'God's Country' and we'll try our best to add to the 'green' to help support your parks! Just promise it won't RAIN! Safe travels...Bob

As previously stated, many beautiful places to stay in both Oregon and Washington. HOWEVER, keep in mind that you are coming during (at the end of) the PRIME season, and most state parks and private campgrounds in prime areas will be full with reservations. So, plan ahead and have a great time. After Labor Day things will slowly "thin" out.
