Last minute trip leaving Seattle

So we are in the midst of hopefully buying an DP and will want to take it out this summer. We live in the Northwest (Puyallup, WA) and will have a week to be gone. Where should we go that would still have available spots. We do belong to 1000 trails but not necessary to stay at their parks, Ideally somewhere between Northwest and AZ so maybe the in laws would meet us and we could should them our new ride

Thanks

Redding; warmish but a nice place to stay. Stay at Premier RV
Resort Coburg Or, then head to Premier RV Redding next day. Easy trip, good shake down.

Premier RV Resorts

Sacramento outskirts. 49er RV resort, Plymouth Nice shady place.
49er Village Home Page

Oregon Coast of course but further for relatives to come. Harder to get reservations I would think.

One week is to short for such a long trip.
Find someplace you enjoy much closer to home for first trip.

Two easy days to Redding, two days back three days there. But yes it is a quick trip and does not allow for anything not to go right. Bend Oregon is one day.
Crown Villa RV Resort – Bend, Oregon

The coast will be full and difficult to find reservations.

Another thought is Yakima and Washington Wine country. Nice this time of year.

Your plan to have someone meet you half way from Arizona may be a bit aggressive.

Safe travels.

Sand and Sea down near Depoe Bay on the Oregon coast is nice and an easy day from where you are (welcome to the area...my office is in Puyallup and we live out in Orting).
and, as has been mentioned, Crown Villa in the Bend area is very nice.
We also stayed at the Four Seasons RV resort down in Walla Walla. Had a great time. about a 2 mile bike ride to down town Walla Walla with about a zillion wineries.

Have fun

Head to Seaside area, Ft Stevens has hundreds of sites and the KOA across the street always has space, nice pool and jacuzzi too. We're in North Bend and go there for shakedown, GrayLand SP near Westport is good too. Someone mentioned Yakima and you can almost always find space at Yakima Nation RV Park, walking distance to casion and Toppenish, and only 15 min from about 30-40 wineries up in the hills near Selah. We just got back from there two weeks ago and had a great time tasting. Went to Anacortes this weekend Pioneer RV Park is highly reccomended, only 10 min from Anacortes and the ferries to the San Juan Islands. Great farmers market in Anacortes too, and take a ferry ride to Orcas Island and look for whales. Lots to do in WA, don't need to make long term reservations.

I like the above recomendations too. We're headed to Redwoodsin a few weeks via a Volcano Tour through OR starting at Yakima and hitting Crowne Villa and Permier in Redding on the way to Sounds fo the Sea in Trinidad.
