Washington's Top Hookup Spots (for RVers, that is)

Deception Pass Bridge, gateway to the San Juan Islands. 

There is no shortage of great hotels in Washington, but nothing beats seeing the wonder of the state from the comfort of an RV. Fortunately, there are plenty of terrific RV resorts at which you hook up your rig. Staying at many of these resorts will place you right next to some of the most popular attractions in state.

Bayshore RV Park is located in Tokeland, about 20 miles south of the coastal town of Westport. Most visitors to this area will bypass Tokeland -- and never know what an attractive area they've missed. This rustic park is set just behind a low berm that separates the RV park from the sandy beach. Much of the first 500 yards beyond the initial waterway is tidal, providing a labyrinth of islands and waterways at different tide levels. The town is slightly inland from the mouth of Willapa Bay, and tends to be both warmer and sunnier than areas exposed directly to the incoming surf. Nearby is the historic – and reportedly haunted - Tokeland Hotel, which is a must for a meal out when staying in this area. www.bayshoretokeland.com, (800) 638-7555

Alderwood RV Resort is a highly rated destination park in Spokane (actually in the small town of Mead, just few miles north). You'll find professionally landscaped sites, separated by carefully maintained trees and shrubs that provide privacy and shade -- without creating overhead or lateral obstructions. The garden-like setting creates an illusion of being parked inside a very large nursery. www.alderwoodrv.com, (888) 847-0500

Icicle River Resort is a short three miles south of Leavenworth. The park is situated along the banks of the Icicle River, and is beautifully landscaped and maintained. The sites are all paved, and have individual patios of concrete or wood decking. www.icicleriverrv.com, (509) 548-5420

Located between the magnificent Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan De Fuca, in the quaint city of Sequim, Giligal Oasis RV Park is one of the newest and most modern RV facility on the Olympic Peninsula. Amenities at the 28-site park include full hookups with cable and phone, high-speed DSL internet, clubhouse with modern kitchen, laundry facilities and more. Giligal Oasis is the perfect base from which to explore nearby Olympic National Park, view wildlife up close and personal at the Olympic Game Farm, or set out on the coastal waters in search of whales. www.gilgaloasisrvpark.com, (888) 445-4251

If golf if your game, the Sage Hills Golf & RV Resort in the heart of the Columbia Basin, 15 miles south of Moses Lake, will fit you to a tee. This golf course and RV park provides a prime location for a perfect game amidst beautiful hills and valleys and surrounded by sand and sagebrush. The 18-hole championship golf course features oases of green fairways, mature trees and some of the best greens in Washington. Fifty RV sites are available that comfortably fit large and small rigs, including tents, ATV's and boats. www.sagehills.com, (888) 628-3066
