Hello, campers! Today we continue our Washington state series, moving on to all the best RV parks and campgrounds that this terrific Pacific state has to offer.

Though we can’t take a look at all campgrounds in Washington, these are some of the best camp grounds that our furthest northwest state has.

Next time AllCampgrounds will take a look at state and federal lands, both of the tent camping and RV persuasion. Here are today’s picks.

RV Camping at Point Hudson Marina: Point Hudson is right at the heart of Townsend Street, a known landmark for the port city of the same name here in Washington. You simply can’t find a better place to enjoy water sports and fishing with all the amenities of a lively port. There are 48 RV park spots enjoying the ideal location, and you also benefit from the quick attention of several area businesses that can help with fishing, boating, or just about any other aquatic pastime you can imagine. Also keep in mind that the newly expanded Northwest Marine Center is only a short ways away!

Pioneer Trails Campground and RV Resort: Pioneer Trails is known for its extra-roomy “super sites” as well as its 50 and 100 amp hookups. Wi-fi is available throughout all the camp grounds, and there are a few other keen features, such as a fully-stocked “coach house”, regulation-sized horseshoe pit, and picnic area. Budget conscious campers will especially enjoy Pioneer Trails, as it’s part of the Good Sam Club, which can offer you all kinds of discounts on the RV lifestyle.

Toutle River RV Resort: Toutle RV, situated at Castle Rock, is one of the largest RV resorts in the state. With an exceptionally well-appointed clubhouse featuring a heated, ADA-accessible spa and pool, as well as a general store that supplies all of your RV needs and a copious “loaner list” that includes just about anything you could need for outdoor fun, cooking, or getting around, Toutle River takes you by surprise with its varied and fun features. It also has the “world’s largest croquet court”, at about 200×500, played with oversized mallets and balls!

Ocean Mist RV Resort: Ocean Mist Resort is one of the highly regarded “Resorts of America” properties, and includes well over 100 sites featuring 50-amp electrical hookups. You can lounge on the oceanfront property or enjoy the rich local forests, and at the end of the day take in basketball, pickleball, the hot tub, and more. The beach area offers beach combing, clam digging, and picturesque areas for picnicking.
