Far and away one of the best places for camping with an RV in northwestern Washington is the Concrete/Grandy Creek KOA. It’s situated in the middle of all sorts of great attractions, seaside villages, soaring mountains, and big-city sights in the state’s most populous city, Seattle. Getting around is easy with Interstate 5 running between Seattle and the Canadian border. The campground has quite a few excellent amenities too, like full hookups with 50-amp capacity, a swimming pool, a hot tub and sauna, a mini-golf course, and a dog park. Sites at Concrete/Grandy Creek KOA can accommodate rigs up to 45 feet long.Got a bike or enjoy long-distance runs? The 22-mile-long Cascade Trail runs right next to the campground and is one of the best places to get some exercise when you book an RV in Skagit County. It has a crushed gravel surface that’s easier on the joints, but can be slippery if you’re riding a bike with narrow tires.The campground also sits at the foot of Mount Baker, so you’ll never be short on beautiful scenery. Several trails encircle or summit this gorgeous peak, and there’s something for just about every fitness level. Baker Lake is also quite close and is incredibly popular with boaters and anglers; kayak and canoe rentals can be hard to find though, and you’ll probably need to look towards one of the larger towns out on Interstate 5 to get one.You’re also not far from the stunningly beautiful San Juan Islands when you're RV camping at Concrete/Grandy Creek KOA. The Washington State Ferry runs from the town of Anacortes on the mainland to Lopez Island, Shaw Island, Orcas Island, and Friday Harbor. Orcas Island and Friday Harbor are particularly popular with tourists wanting to experience island life while enjoying fresh seafood and browsing through cute shops.

Staying at an RV park in this part of Washington is all about enjoying the natural surroundings. Lakes, mountains, and the ocean – it’s all within a short drive when you get an RV rental near Concrete. In fact, the best thing about RV camping at Concrete/Grandy Creek KOA is its proximity to North Cascades National Park. Despite being so close to Seattle, it’s one of the country’s least-visited national parks, perhaps because many of its trails lead up some fairly steep peaks. Jack Kerouac worked as a fire lookout on one of them back in the ‘40s, which inspired his famed novel Desolation Angels. If you’ve got the stamina for climbing those splendid peaks though, this should definitely be on your RV camping itinerary.Climbing big mountains isn’t your thing? Try something smaller over at Deception Pass State Park. The park sits on both sides of the Deception Pass strait, which flows into Puget Sound between Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands. From its highest point, you’ll have some excellent views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the trails down to the water are relatively easy so long as they aren’t too muddy.If you’re itching to get out on the water, try the Skagit River on the south side of Concrete. It runs fast during the summer melt though, so it’s best to leave it to more experienced paddlers during this period. For a sea kayaking adventure, rent a boat in Anacortes and paddle out to Hat or Guemes Island. It’s a relatively short distance, and the waters are usually calm, but keep your eyes peeled for the pods of orca whales that frequent the area.
Concrete/Grandy Creek KOA lies about halfway between the towns of Concrete and Hamilton, and both of them are worth a visit when you get a campervan rental here. Both communities are heavy on outdoor adventure and have fewer attractions for city folk, but there are a couple of gems worth mentioning. The North Cascades Vintage Aircraft Museum is one of them, with several hangers crammed full of classic airplanes. Many are quite rare, and all have been beautifully restored, making this a must for aviation enthusiasts.There are also a couple of wineries in the Skagit River Valley that are flourishing thanks to the unique microclimates created by the mountains. Many of them utilize grapes that have been selected for their cold tolerance, which have a slightly different flavor profile than what you’d find in your average grocery store vino. Take a tour of the fields and learn about the process or just stop into the tasting room and try all the delicious wines until you find one worth taking home.For an offbeat history lesson, take a trip over to Northern State Ghost Town, west of Concrete and not far from Interstate 5. There are several old barns and farmhouses to explore in various states of disrepair, though you’ll need to do your research online if you want to learn anything about the structures – there are no signs or plaques to read. If you’re not a big fan of ghost towns, there’s also a disc golf course to play through and the mountain backdrop that makes for amazing scenery.
What type of RV should I choose?
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.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
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.
