US 2 in Washington

Does anyone know how the US 2 road in Washington is? Is it appropriate for a 40' coach? Thanks for any info.

Sorry, in between Everett and Leavenworth (the part that goes over the Cascades) is what I'm interested in. Thanks

If you're headed eastwards, it can be a bit "white-knuckly" for your front seat passenger for about 15 miles approaching Leavenworth. The road is plenty wide enough and the curves are manageable, but the river is right alongside the south edge of the road.

We prefer SR20, going east over the North Cascades Highway, as the mountains are alongside the passenger seat. The opposite lane is between you and the drop-off. It's usually closed until the middle of May by the snowfalls over the winter.

Good to know, Frank. There's a RV park in Leavenworth that we would like to stay in. Thanks.

Good road. Do it lots of times. Heading east you will come around a left hand curve and start to climb. You will be tempted to move to the far right lane. Leave that for the slow moving semi's. Most will have their 4 way flashers on. Take the next lane over lest you loose all your momentum. Stop at the summit always a nice leg stretch.

Kim:

If you're thinking of Icicle Creek, you might want to take a closer look. Based on the recommendation of two friends, we went there for a 2-night stay. Neither of our friends had slide-outs in their rigs.

It's expensive (over $40), and was designed before slide-outs became popular.
When we extended the living room slide, it was less than 3 feet from next-door's awning.

They also get a lot of group camps. There were about 60 Pleasure-Way vans there when we went, so the choice of sites was very limited.

The previous year, we found a really pleasant CG a few miles east of Leavenworth and a short distance south on I-97. It's called "Blu-Shastin". The owners are British and very friendly. The site is on a shallow stream that I think is a tributary of the big river that runs through Leavenworth. Sites are close together there, too, but it's usually not crowded. Wish we'd gone there instead of Icicle Creek.

We stayed at the KOA just before you enter the town on the east side and it was nice
with lots of room.

Thanks for all the reviews. We were looking at the Thousand Trails CG off of Hwy 207, but at least I now have other options to explore.

Sorry, folks, I mis-remembered the name of the CG. It was Icicle River RV Resort we stayed at, not Icicle Creek CG.

Hiway 2 is beautiful and very easy to travel by motorhome. We go that route in our 45 footer every summer. Good road. Some two lane, but lots of stretches of 4 lanes or wider going over the pass. Scenery is wonderful. Lots of places to pull over and stop if necessary.

Enjoy
