The diversity of geography and ecosystems can excite even the most extreme outdoor enthusiast to go camping in Washington.
The diversity of geography and ecosystems can excite even the most extreme outdoor enthusiast to go camping in Washington. Try climbing, hiking, biking, boating, canoeing, fishing, golfing and horseback riding. Once comfortably parked in one of the many RV parks in Washington, you can pursue winter sports such as downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. For alpine adventure, look toward Mount Rainier at 14,411 feet high, the highest mountain in Washington. Paradise, at 5,420 feet, receives an average of 680 inches of snowfall every year, making it one of the consistently snowiest places on Earth
Closer to sea level, camping in Washington along the Pacific Coast is the perfect venue for surfing, scuba diving, taking a leisurely walk on beautiful sandy beaches or watching the surf crash on the rocky coastline. Taking into account the Pacific Coast of Washington and the state’s extensive tidal waterways and island perimeters, there are more than 3,000 miles of coastline. Some RV parks in Washington are located near one of the amazing numbers of glacier-fed rivers, freshwater lakes, or scenic reservoirs. It’s a paradise for people who love water and all things you can do on it and in it.
Fishing and RVing often go hand in hand and RV camping in Washington State allows you to fish for rainbow trout in glacier-fed rivers, reel in wild Chinook salmon in coastal waters, or catch a sturgeon from the depths of the Columbia River. It’s said that Washington’s fish are hungry and surprisingly gullible. Don’t forget the dozens of beautiful lakes and reservoirs with opportunity for more fishing and active water sports.
Even in Washington’s largest cities—Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma and Vancouver—you’ll still be close to the natural beauty of the region, but now with a healthy dose of urban living. Christened “The Emerald City,” Seattle is surrounded by lakes, rivers, Puget Sound, and mountains. It’s also home to Microsoft, Nordstrom and Starbucks and is known as the birthplace of the crazes for grunge rock and espresso coffee. As you see, camping in Washington can be urban, country, mountainous, coastal, or water bound. No matter where you are in the Evergreen State, you’ll go home with memories to last a lifetime.
