Eastern Washington Camping

My wife and I bought our first motor home about a month a go and we are looking for some ideas for places to camp in the area? (Pacific Northwest) We know lots of places to go come April but would like to get out now, any ideas?

How ready are you for a major cold snap while out camping? What type of weather are you willing to tolerate?
These answers might be helpful for others as they make a decision for you!

Steamboat Rock state park is a great place on Banks Lake. Trout fishing at lake Curlew is also great but it may be a little early for there. We always liked camping at Blacks Resort at lake Curlew. Not sure what is called now that was about 20 years ago.

Get a good state map, there are a multitude of places in Eastern WA from the Cascades east to north Idaho and the Canadian border to the Oregon State line; you have many state, forest service and commercial campgrounds to choose from. We lived in the Spokane area for over eight years when the kids were small and found neat camping sites with very little effort.

Having hosted at the Forest Service campground down from the summit of Washington Pass, I can imagine that that highway won't open until end of June or later. However, there are a myriad of campgrounds in that area. Just out of Twisp, there is a very nice campground on the Methow River called Riverbend. Going on doen the river towards Wenatchee you'll find several more. Happy camping.

Benton County operates a neat campground at Horn Rapids Park right here 46.378611,-119.438673. This is not the same as Horn Rapids RV Resort closer to Richland. The Benton County park has electricity and water but sewer is limited to a dump station.

Hot in the summer and cold in the winter but the shoulder seasons can be very pleasant.

We live 80 miles North of Spokane in Kettle Falls almost on the banks of of Lake Roosevelt (Columbia River) I agree with all the previous posts. Close by is the Kettle Falls Marina with many camp grounds. Some are open now. Many are on the short side. About 45 minutes South is Two Rivers resort with National Park Service camp grounds with no hook ups. There also is the casino with gambling, marina, and camp grounds with full hook ups. Can get real busy later in the Summer. We were at Blacks Beach in 2008. It's open. Not flashy, kinda rustic. Has store with hook ups. Huge. Nice State Park at Vantage(sort of an en route) camp ground. Has a very interesting petrified forest museum.

Cape Disappointment State Park is one of our favorites. Also Maryhill SP is right up there with the best (if you don't mind train noise). Be sure to look at RVParkreviews.com. RV Park Reviews :: Home
