As Frank said, the route is scenic. You go through several remote towns and there are several great fishing lakes along the route if the season is open when you come.

As you go come out of Coupeville, you will pass about 1 mile from our house. I think the Port Townsend ferry will cost less than Kingston. The last time we took it with our prior TT, it cost $54 for under 40'. The car should be around $15 if you disconecet. Prices change with the season.

Be sure to stay at least one night in our area to enjoy the crafts and the history, AND Toby's Tavern - great hamburgers and local mussels.
So we want to go to north to Tiger then west to Kettle Falls & on to Tonsasket?

I was thinking about staying at Fort Ebey SP then catching the ferry in the morning so Toby's Tavern sounds like a great place a meal! Thanks for the info on the ferry.

I don't recall ever staying in a national forest campground where generators were not allowed. The generator hours would probably be during the non-quiet hours and in the forests that's usually all day. We have solar but the campground is shaded so I don't recall if we had to supplement with our generator.

Here is a good site which shows each campground site. There aren't a lot of big rig sites so a reservation would be advisable.

From the campground is a scenic paved road to view Mt. St. Helens area. However, if you can, I'd advise trying to tour the area from the west side, also. That's where the Visitor Center is. Have a good trip!
Thanks for the info about Iron Creek & Mt. St. Helens. I think we can stop at the visitor's center when we leave Iron Creek. I appreciate that tip!

Yes, I agree with your routing. I've lost track of your RV size and configuration. Check camp spot sizes a Fort Ebey. It is a nice park, semi rustic but I am not sure how large the spots are. I could easily check but the reservation site is pretty good. If it looks too tight, try Fort Casey. It is right next to the ferry.

BTW: you should get reservations for the ferry if you are pretty certain of your departure time.
