What Do RVers Do When Camping?

Check out other campgrounds in the area, of course!

While we were at the Thousand Trails in Leavenworth, we checked out the Washington State Nason Creek Campground.  It was a nice campground, but not conducive to big rigs.  We saw a few and were kind of excited, but those 2 or 3 spots were for camp hosts only.  I don't think there were any hook ups at the sites, no water, no electricity and definitely no sewer.  Kim checked out the Men's Room while we were there, and said it was clean.

Next stop was the Icicle River RV Park.  A very nice place.  It is a Good Sam Park.  Some very nice back in spots for a river view.  And there were a number of park setting sites with cement pads and well cared for grass.  We talked with the owners/caretakers and they seemed quite friendly.

We took a drive over to Quincy, WA, to check out the Crescent Bar Thousand Trails park.  On the way, we spotted a gem of a county park in Monitor, WA.  I would love to check it out in person next time we are over that way.  I did read on RV Park Reviews that the river view spots reserve quite a bit in advance, and that the over night spots are close to Hwy 2, so you are dealing with a lot of highway noise, if that bothers you.

The Crescent Bar TT Preserve was just okay, in my opinion.  It is a nice little setting, but most of the prime spots with view of the Columbia River were taken by annual leaseholders.  That was a disappointment to me.  There are other decent spots, however, but not much privacy.  I don't think we would make the drive over there to camp.  I much preferred the TT Preserve in Leavenworth.

I post these comments based on first glance of the parks.  We did not stay at any of the parks, so I have no first hand experience.  And I'm old enough to know that often times the experience is better than a causal view....and of course, visa versa is also true.  It all depends on what you are looking for in an RV park.
