Picking a family vacation destination doesn’t have to be stressful. We’ve handpicked five RV parks in the Pacific Northwest that offer rest and relaxation for mom and dad, and fun and adventure for the kids.
Salt Creek Recreation Area, Washington
The Salt Creek Recreation Area in Port Angeles, Washington, is the perfect spot for a little family getaway. Imagine looking for starfish and crabs in the colourful tide pools of Salt Creek, hiking, diving, birdwatching, and taking part in numerous other recreational activities. This area has more than 90 campsites to choose from, so if you’d prefer to leave the adventuring to the kids, you can kick back and enjoy the beautiful views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Victoria, British Columbia.
Tally Lake Campground, MontanaIn this RV park, located in Flathead National Forest, there’s plenty to keep the kids busy, including biking, hiking, and even horseback riding. You can also boat, swim, and fish in the deepest natural lake in Montana with easy access to the water via lakeside campsites. Image via Reserve America
Spring Drive Campground, Oregon
If you’re looking for a secluded campground that still offers plenty of action, then look no further than Spring Drive. Located in Mount Hood National Park, you’ll find an abundance of short hiking trails for the whole family to enjoy, and you might even spot a deer or two.
Silverwood RV Park, Idaho
In Northern Idaho, you’ll find the ultimate family RV getaway. Silverwood RV Park is right across the street from Silverwood Theme Park and Boulder Beach, offering something for everyone in the family. For the daring, there are the lightening-fast rollercoasters; for the daring-in-the-making, there are plenty of other rides and waterslides. Spend the day exploring the theme park and, come evening, make your way back to your RV and relax next to a cozy campfire.
Wheeler Gorge, California
Enjoy the beauty of Los Padres National Forest while going on one of the many hikes in the area, including the beautiful (and short!) Wheeler Gorge Nature Trail, which begins right from the campground and is an easy loop even the little ones can do. Be sure to take advantage of the children’s educational programs offered in both summer and winter.
Remember to have a leveling plan in place when you travel to unlevel territory (in which most of these beautiful places are). Lynx Levelers can raise your trailer in one inch increments to help you level slowly and safely, and make your experience as smooth as possible.
