The Great Outdoors
Who need the bright lights and fast cars of a big city when you have a variety of amazing outdoor locations to choose from? An Ellensburg RV rental allows you to get out and see them all.
Take the time to visit Irene Rinehart Riverfront Park and you won’t be disappointed. The gorgeous park is seated near two bodies of water and is an excellent spot for getting out in a boat. The trails are amazing and there isn’t really a wrong way to spend time at this park. Not far away you can find Rotary Park with its equally splendid trails. This park is much more traditional and makes a great spot for having a picnic. You can also find beautiful scenery at Helen McCabe State Park. It may be only 64 acres, but the excellent fishing makes it well worth the journey.
There are many beautiful unassuming areas to explore throughout Ellensburg like Paul Rogers Wildlife Park. Every bit of this 20-acre park is packed full of interesting things to see. Just walk the trails along the boardwalk and soak in a bit of what life is all about. Olmstead Place State Park gives you a lot more land to cover at over 210 acres. While that might seem overwhelming, the wildlife, hiking, trails, and even a farm museum give you the full Ellensburg experience.
If you are more interested in a nice community park where you can play some sports, let the kids run free, or just park the Ellenburg camper rental and relax, West Ellensburg Park is always a good choice. This smaller area on the northeastern end of Rotary Park is a nice spot for a quick siesta in the midst of the surrounding city. If you are looking for another nice park, but one with more of a serene natural feel head over to Mountain View Park. With many standard park amenities, this spot gives you a nice mix of both worlds. Renting an RV in Ellensburg unlocks access to many more great natural spots to visit, too.
Finding a nice spot to make your base camp in Ellensburg is quick and easy thanks to all of the options in the area. Ellensburg KOA could be a good option. The campground is seated between the Yakima River and multiple dining and shopping options.
The Yakima River Canyon Campground is a more rustic choice for those who want to rough it a bit. Moving out of the city you can find even more interesting options like Whispering Pines RV Park in Cle Elum. The park is by the river with all of the shopping and restaurants you need just about a mile away.
Another option is Stagecoach RV Park in Selah. This country-style RV park has a store to match its surroundings, but finding gas and other things might require a bit of a drive.
