Where to Camp in Washington

We will be traveling from Coeur d'Alene, ID to Roseburg, OR next summer (July) and have about a week to do so. We are looking for two areas to stop and stay at. We'd like campgrounds with full hook-ups and maybe a nice pool for the kids. We'd also like to be near some wineries that we could walk or bike to. Being in or near a quaint, small town would be nice too. We really just want to explore the beauty of the state. We are considering Yakima or Kennewick as a first stop and then either Bend or Portland. Any recommendations?

Sorry I can't help you with specific destinations but I would think anything around Walla Walla would provide a good winery destination. And then I would take Hwy 97 toward Bend and look for a nice campground south of Bend towards Sunriver. Beautiful there in July.

You might want to consider a stop in the Columbia River Gorge. There are two State Parks we use and like with full service Ainsworth near Troutdale about 30 minutes from Portland, near waterfalls, and dams and Beacon Rock. Mamaloose St Park near the Dalles has a great view of the River and is near the dam and on the Wash Side Maryhill Museum and Stone Hinge Replica. Also near Lyle is Syncline Winery (on my Uncles old ranch) very good wine and open for tasting. Also Hood River in Oregon has wind surfers and wineries. Plenty to do in the Gorge.

Last fall we spent a week each at Olde Stone Village RV Park in McMinnville, OR (Willamette Valley wine country) and Bend/ Sisters Garden RV Park in Sisters, OR and we really liked both of them. More info and photos here:

Columbia Sun RV Resort | Your Prime Tri-Cities RV Park

I live about a mile from this park in Kennewick Wa. It's a new park, maybe 3 years old. We are about an hour west of Walla Walla and 20 minutes north of the Oregon border. The Snake river joins the Columbia here and there are well over 200 wineries within an hour of here. There is also the B reactor national historical park here where you can tour the worlds first nuclear reactor which made the fuel for the atomic bomb during the Manhatten project.

It is desert here. We average 9 inches of rain a year and summer temps are typically high 90s and low 100s. The only trees you see have been planted here although it is quite green in town due to the abundance of river water for irrigation.

300 days of sunshine a year so bring your sunscreen.

We recently camped at Fort Casey right on the water and really enjoyed it. Some good size RV spaces there, and nice bathrooms.

We stayed in Prosser, WA at the Wine Country RV Park a few years ago. It is a very nice place. They have some wine tastings on site or you can walk to the Vintners Village for wine from at least 10 different wineries. You can also take a short drive to many others.

La Conner is something that you may consider if you are looking to be in or near a quaint, small town. There is an RV park in the marina. The town is within walking distance. We stopped there last year for a few nights and thoroughly enjoyed the area.

The website lists $32/night with FHU. There isn't a pool....but I would bet there is a place to rent kayaks. This is not a resort by any stretch of imagination. But it is clean and well run. It is close to the ferry terminal at Anacortes, WA (gateway to the San Juan Islands and terrific whale watching). Lots of agriculture in the area, so there is a high probability of a winery or two.

This might be a resting point for you if you were going to drive down Whidbey Island toward Fort Casey SP.

RV'ing in Washington

The Swinomish Casino and Lodge has a great RV lot,although only 33 full service spots,they do have an overflow lot should you not have a reservation (recommended).On Hwy.20,15 minutes off the I-5 towards Anacortes,and very close to LaConner.This is when having a toad with is truly appreciated.

Some good choices here! We stayed at Maryhill State Park. Able to to take in the winery and some tasting, museum and Stonehenge Replica. Only thing that bothered my wife was the train traffic across the river during the night.
