RV Camping in Washington

Boondocking is what we do best! This is our preferred way to to camp and we have found some amazing, epic places we want to share with you! But we are also members of Boondockers Welcome, Escapees and Thousand Trails. So we’re here to share our tips on all the locations we stay in Washington. We are full time RV travelers, so we will be updating this blog often! Come back often!


  • Rifle Lake – Glenoma, Washington. Anysize RV will fit. Lake front and kayaking is amazing. GPS: 46.489023, -122.18287 Cell Service is good but not great. 
  • Wynoochee River – Montesano, Washington. Nice spot right by the river. No power or hookups. Great for boondocking. Large rigs are fine. GPS: 47.445034, -123.552992
  • Rufus – A beautiful area right on the Columbia River. This is actually in Oregon, but it’s right on the boarder, so I’m adding it this Washington blog as well. It’s about 15 minutes from the Stonehenge memorial above. Wide open for any size rig. GPS: 45.692701, -120.756865
  • Bear Creek Campground – GPS: 48.066128, -124.241411 – Free with Washington State discovery pass which is only $15 per year, easy to apply for this online and print your confirmation. This pass will more than make up for itself if you stay even one night.
  • Quinault Beach Casino – GPS: 47.038491, -124.170615 – 50+ spots in this casino. You can stay up to 14 days. Gravel lot, excellent cell service, large dumpsters, free play at the casino. Very nice area. Not scenic in the camping area, but great area to explore from. (Thank you to our friends Nate and Heather for the below drone picture of us!)

Paid Campgrounds

  • Columbia Sun RV Resort – Kennewick, WA – GPS: 46.194835, -119.283744 – This is a very expensive, beautiful campground. We were invited to speak at a Grand Design Rally so we needed to stay in the campground for a few days. I recommend it if you’re looking for paid campgrounds.

  1. A nicely-done article. The best places are off the beaten path.

    I love to hear about places that do not get the big write-ups in the travel books and forums.

    Every place has it’s share of incredible off the beaten track spots. Thanks for sharing these secret ones.
