A TASTE OF WASHINGTON’S COAST

 

We began the first leg of our trip through the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state with a visit to the Waterfront at Potlach RV Park. Today we continue on with our trip visiting Grayland Beach State Park. We arrive after a leisurely 80-mile drive and still have the majority of the day ahead of us. This is the beauty of exploring the Olympic Peninsula, as camping destinations and places to visit are within short proximity to one another.

After we set up camp, we hop into the truck and make our way down the road to the city of Westport.  According to the Chamber of Commerce, we learn that Westport bills itself as the “Sport Fishing Capital of the World.” That was not surprising to us as the marina was full of some pretty big fishing boats. The Westport Marina is also a great place to set your crab pots and pull in buckets of Dungeness crab. Crabbing, not fishing was our activity of the afternoon and we could hardly wait.

IDEAL WEEKEND RV GETAWAYS IN WASHINGTON STATE

I LOVE Washington. And as a writer, I naturally love helping others learn about new places to explore in Washington. So grab the family, pack the RV and check out four of my favorite locations for a fun-packed RV getaway weekend.

 

1. Olympic Peninsula

The Olympic Peninsula is unique from the rest of the state. I truly could RV here all summer and never get bored.

Hurricane Ridge – From Port Angeles, a 17 mile drive elevates you to the mountain tops of the Olympic Mountains. Enjoy spectacular views of snow capped mountains and of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Plenty of hiking available for all endurance levels including many kid-friendly trails.

 

Marymere Falls – Want to hike to a waterfall? Get up close with a gentle waterfall cascading 90 feet into a small pool. A kid-friendly one mile trail leads you through the forest and over a log bridge. The steepest part of the trail lies near the end as you approach the waterfall.
