The Great Outdoors
The moment you see the mountains around Liberty Lake, you’ll recognize at once the opportunities that exist for outdoor fun. And that’s before you’ve seen the deep blue lake that gives the town its name. A luxury RV rental in Liberty Lake allows you to travel at your own pace and see all that the area has to offer.
Over the state line in Idaho, Coeur d’Alene National Forest is a sprawling wilderness that you can reach in around half an hour from Liberty Lake. With over 700,000 acres of mountain and forest, this park offers an unbeatable chance to get away from it all. Hiking, climbing, wildlife watching - the list of activities you can pursue here goes on. And whatever you choose to do, you’ll be doing it in some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable.
Speaking of beautiful scenery, a motorhome rental in Liberty Lake will allow you to travel further afield if you choose. Around four hours is enough to get you to the legendary Glacier National Park. This truly jaw-dropping part of the world is famous for a reason. No photograph does justice to the staggering sight of the Rocky Mountains as they march across the continent, and if you have the time, the trip is well worth making.
The Pacific Northwest is known for many things, and water is definitely one of them. A visit to Wallace Falls State Park, around a five-hour drive from Liberty Lake, could give you a new appreciation for rain. When it creates rivers and waterfalls as beautiful as these, it's hard not to be thankful for some wet weather. And while you're in that part of the state, you could also visit the vibrant city of Seattle or make a trip to the coast.
Once you’ve found the best RV rental in Liberty Lake, all of these destinations are open to you. But you don’t need to go as far as that for a taste of scenic beauty. Liberty Lake itself is a great place to spend an afternoon on the water or on the beach. Let the gentle lapping of the pristine waters sooth away your troubles as you unwind.

Just a few miles from Liberty Lake, the Spokane KOA Journey is an excellent choice for travelers who like a little more in the way of amenities. This campground offers Wifi, cable TV, sewerage, showers, laundry and much more. There's even a heated outdoor pool and free movies in the summer.

Exploring The City
Liberty Lake attracts outdoor enthusiasts thanks to its enviable surroundings. But there's more to this small town than the lake that gives it its name.
