When I think Pacific northwest camping, I think nature, water, camping, hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, Puget Sound, Bigfoot, and rain forest (with a hint of vampires and werewolves).
As of now I am posting about camping in Washington and Oregon. I will also be adding Montana and Idaho at a later time.
Camping in the PNW in the summer is amazing whether you in the roughing it or glamping. Being in nature is so healthy for our bodies and mental health.
State Parks have yurts and cabins for rent, as well as RV sites and tent sites.
Pretty much where ever you go, you are near water, and there are so many options for people to get on the water from boating, kayaking, paddleboarding, and swimming. We also have some of the best scuba diving in the world.
You really can’t beat Washington State Parks for camping! For those who prefer a little more glamping style, these parks have yurts and cabins for rent, as well as RV sites and tent sites. Some sites even have hybrid sites for combinations of different campers like yurts/ Rv’s sites or cabins/ tents sites.
We live in the Pacific Northwest and what that means is we are surrounded by water. I am not sure any other state has more water. We have Lakes a few miles apart, Puget Sound, the ocean, Hood canal, rivers and creeks. It only makes sense while staycationing close to home, we grab some paddle boards or kayaks and start exploring new places. This was a god send last summer, and was the perfect social distant activity!
It was also a great companion to camping. We bought high quality Inflatable paddleboards and I can not recommend them enough.

From Spring to Summer in 2020, we went to Eastern Washington and camped at some of our favorite camp grounds and scoped out new ones.
It was a fun adventure, and it was one of the only things we could do because of the restrictions we had last summer.
Summer of 2020 we visited over 12 parks between Wenatchee, Leavenworth, and beyond Lake Chelan. We have some new reservations this summer (2021), and we will be taking our paddleboards with us. We are ready!
Plan out your summer and check out this post all about the State Parks we have been to and how we rank them!
Check out this blog post of some of the essential items we researched and bought for our trailer. It is a great list if you’re starting with a new RV or looking to upgrade your equipment.
This is a post of everything you need to know about Camping in the PNW. What you need to get when you start RV camping.
There is so much to learn. While the purchase can be spontaneous, there is things you need you may not think of. Some of the items are safely and some of the items are not essential, but make your life so much easier!
