Bay Center / Willapa Bay KOA

Washington State is renowned for its forest, sea, and sky vistas and one of the best places to enjoy this view is Bay Center / Willapa Bay KOA. From the moment you arrive in your RV rental, you will enjoy the pristine quiet and the scenic views that this KOA provides. Add to this the social activities provided by the campground management, and you will have the perfect RV campground for your Pacific County vacation. The park has three-wheeled banana bikes for you to use, badminton, basketball and volleyball courts, and a horseshoe pitch. Follow the nature trail down to the shore, and you can go beachcombing, bird watching, or take a swim in the tidal bay. In the evenings, you can relax with a campfire while watching the brilliant skyline colors as the sun sets.When you arrive, you'll have your choice between 30 amp and 50 amp electricity; most of the sites have full hookups, and you can freshen up using the restrooms and showers. The camp has laundry facilities for you to use, a pet walk for your furry family members, and a playground and game room for your kids to burn off the energy they've acquired while traveling here. There are a few tent sites in the campground, a few cabins, and several yurts.When you're set up and ready to go, you should start by seeing what lies just beyond the park in the local area. You can try your hand at fishing in the nearby rivers or out on the ocean, or raking the campground's private beach for steamer clams (a license is required for the clams). There are several lighthouses nearby and some historical attractions like the Pacific County Courthouse. If you take your motorhome rental south, you will find yourself in Astoria, Oregon, the oldest American settlement this side of the Rockies; the bridge from Washington State into Astoria is worth the trip by itself.

The Great Outdoors

Washington State's diverse environment is a beacon for a large variety of wildlife and if this is something you enjoy, then drive your rental RV south towards Willapa National Wildlife Refuge, a short 20-mile ride away. In this natural resource, ocean tides combine with fresh water from rivers to create an environment suitable for species on the land and waterways. You can expect to see amphibians and a multitude of bird species such as raptors and waterfowl. The park offers staff-led educational experiences to its visitors, but you can also take self-guided hikes through the trail system that includes signage explaining what you're seeing. Camping and boating are allowed within the refuge, giving you an opportunity to park your Bay Center motorhome rental in the park for an overnight visit.Just a short drive northeast of Bay Center / Willapa Bay KOA, Bone River Natural Area Preserve offers visitors something slightly different. This nature preserve consists of salt marshes and tideflats, freshwater streams and wetlands, and conifer tree stands. It's an important breeding ground for steelhead and coho salmon, providing runs in the spring and fall. It's also an important habitat for waterfowl, marbled murrelet, and bald eagles, making it an ideal spot for bird watching and nature photography. Head to this destination in your rental motorhome, and you can relax in your favorite camping chair with a beverage and wait for the wildlife to appear.If you continue heading north on Highway 101 and then west on 105, Grayland Beach State Park is about an hour's drive from Bay Center / Willapa Bay KOA. This nature area is right on the ocean and where you will want to go if you enjoy flying kites. It's also a popular spot for surfing and hiking through grassy dunes. This is the Pacific Northwest, which means that storms occasionally roll in from off of the ocean, but the park is one of those places where inclement weather can actually improve your experience, watching the wind and waves from the warmth and comfort of your motorhome rental.

Exploring The Area

Book an RV in Pacific County, and you are one step closer to the unique towns, cities, and nature of Washington State. Raymond is a moderately sized town, and you'll know you've arrived when you spot the metal figurine public art displays scattered throughout the town. These life-size public art objects are silhouettes of grazing deer, horses pulling logs, family groups, and more. When you spot them, you may want to stop for a look. The town also has several museums and an art gallery.If heading inland to see something different, consider stopping in Chehalis, a slightly larger but still laid-back community. This friendly town has a miniature golf course equipped with black lighting, making for an even more interesting late-night game. It also has a long history, represented by a historical museum, Jackson Courthouse State Park, and a church and cemetery. By now, you'll want to consider dining options, and most of the options are locally owned and operated, offering fare that is inexpensive to moderately priced. A couple of the diners specialize in breakfast and lots of it, but one is open for breakfast and lunch only.You'd be hard-pressed to find a more exhilarating vacation than spending time on Washington's Pacific coastline, and Bay Center / Willapa Bay KOA is the ideal center to launch this vacation from.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
