Discover Gig Harbor

Washington State - what a beautiful location and every RV renter’s dream. Where else can you watch the sun peer over the horizon of a sparkling, white-capped sea and two hours later stand in the shadow of Mount Rainier, the highest peak in the Cascade Range and an active volcano? When you stay at Gig Harbor, this can be your unique experience.

Gig Harbor is a bay on the Puget Sound, as well as the name of a small, quaint town located near several state and city parks, only 20 miles from Tacoma, and only one hour away from Seattle. Gig Harbor gets its name from Captain Charles Wilkes, who during a heavy storm, sought shelter in the protective harbor. Later with the publication of Wilkes 1841 map of the Oregon Territory, he named this sheltered bay Gig Harbor. Commercial fishing, boat building, and logging commanded the local economy for years before the Tacoma Narrows Bridge was built and Gig Harbor became a suburb of Tacoma.
