Though the view is obscured by tall pole pines, Mount Rainier in Washington looms just 25 miles to the northeast of Eastcreek Campground. RV camp at Eastcreek Campground underneath the tall pine trees that form a delicate lacy canopy. The canopy filters sunlight, preventing it from damaging the soft moss that cloaks the tree trunks. Along one end of the campground, a small creek babbles and gurgles as it meanders through the trees. Though the creek is shallow, it often harbors colonies of tadpole eggs and small minnows.
Eastcreek Campground is a small facility with only ten sites for RVs, but that also means quiet, and solitude is possible. On a misty morning, it’s not uncommon to see deer emerging from the woods to drink cautiously from the creek. The RV sites can accommodate rigs up to 45 feet, and there are water and electric hookups. All guests have the use of restrooms, which have showers, and dump stations, should they require it. Each site is accompanied by a fire pit, which is a welcome treat at the end of a long day of exploring and adventure. Roast s’ mores over the campfire while relaxing outside an Airstream rental.
Pets are allowed, though they must be leashed at all times and never be left alone in the vehicles. There is an off-leash dog area nearby. Heads up, Eastcreek Campground is open only between April and September, so plan accordingly.
Eastcreek Campground is about four miles from Mineral, WA, which has a handful of restaurants and stores for visitors to explore. However, for a larger variety in shopping or a medical center with emergency health care, the closest town is Morton, a little over 15 miles south. Book an RV in Lewis County, WA, and get ready for a memorable RV camping adventure.
Iconic Mount Rainier National Park sprawls over 230,000 acres, which includes the mighty Mount Rainier, one of the few active volcanoes in the continental United States. There are several hundred miles of hiking trails that guide adventurers to various features and attractions within the park’s borders, including waterfalls, old-growth forests, subalpine meadows, lakes, and the summit of Mt. Rainier itself. Be aware that achieving the summit is a tenacious challenge that only 50% of people are able to complete. The summit approach crosses glaciers, which poses unique difficulties for adventurers.
When winter rolls around, the fun doesn’t stop. The trails are opened to snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, and snowshoers. Most of the trails are not groomed, making for a fun experience in the powder snow.
Mineral Lake, also known as the “Gem of the Northwest,” is a fisherman’s dream spot. The 277-acre lake’s water is crystal clear, deep, and cold. Against the backdrop of Mount Rainier, fishermen frequently haul in a 10-pound rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout and largemouth bass. Nearby streams and rivers boast salmon and steelhead and brook trout. Fishing from the shore is recommended; however, there is a small boat launch.
Get a taste of true wilderness at Northwest Trek Wild Park. Various herds of wild animals, such as bison, elk, moose, and caribou, freely roam 200-acres park while the visitors are safely contained within a tram. Visitors can also walk around various habitats and observe big felines, wolves, and bears. There is a short 5-mile hiking trail that meanders through the park, taking adventurers by a particular spot at which bald eagles and other raptor birds frequently nest.
While traveling from town to town in a rental motorhome, stop at one or two to enjoy its history, charm, and attractions. Ride a genuine locomotive train found at Mt. Rainier Railroad and Logging Museum, which is based in Elbe, WA, and explore the museum’s interiors. The exhibits display various photographs, artifacts, and tools used by train engineers and loggers.
In Ashford, WA is a unique sculpture park. Local artists have constructed sculptures made out of scrap iron and other metals. Marvel at a foal frolicking with its dam, a giraffe grazing from a living tree, a steampunk spider, and more.
Housed in Tacoma, is the Museum of Glass, an unusual working museum and art gallery hybrid. Visitors can watch glass artists work over a hot fire, transforming molten glass into fragile sculptures, vases, and other art. The Museum of Glass also occasionally holds workshops, allowing visitors to try their hand at the skill. There is also a gift shop at which one may purchase a one-of-a-kind glass art.
At the end of a long day of adventuring, escape the perpetual “Seattle Drizzle” that plagues the area by retreating into a warm, dry travel trailer rental.
