Wi-Fi and cable TV channels are available to help you relax and catch up on news and email.

Begin your adventure by taking your rental RV towards Silver Lake and Silver Lake Visitor Center. The center has exhibits demonstrating the sequence of events leading up to the eruption of Mount Saint Helens volcano in 1980, the cultural and historical importance of the area both pre and post-eruption, and the efforts to reintroduce plants and vegetation and restore the area to its former state. Silver Lake is an attraction for anglers who can vie for the largemouth bass, cutthroat, and rainbow trout that inhabit the lake along with other species.

The Great Outdoors

The most logical destination on your trip is just steps past Johnston Ridge Visitor Center; the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument is an up-close look at the mountain and volcano, with year-round access and interpretive talks in the summer. Book an RV in Cowlitz County, and this destination and many others will be within your reach. The monument can be experienced from several directions - west, east, and south. The crater itself can be viewed from the west and east areas, which also have picnic areas and trails for you to hike. If forest canopy is more your thing, the south area has caves, waterfalls, and lush tree stands, plus lava flows interspersed among the vegetation.If cultivated landscapes sound interesting to you (and they are a nice counterbalance to the Pacific Northwest terrain), point your motorhome rental towards Lake Sacajawea Park Japanese Gardens near Longview. This magnificent garden is located on an island accessed by a bridge and is a re-creation of the Japanese gardens witnessed by its founder during WWII. The gardens fell into disrepair for a time but have since been restored according to the original development.Closer to Longview North / Mount Saint Helens KOA, you'll find Seaquest State Park across the highway from Silver Lake but still with its own strengths and importance. It can be reached by tunnel from the Silver Lake Visitor Center, and it has numerous trails where you can hike or go mountain biking. Park your rental motorhome at the center and bring a camera with you as the trails wind through stands of secondary old-growth trees; one of the trails winds around Silver Lake and through wetlands using a boardwalk to protect the vegetation. The park has a playground for younger kids with a human-made dune just for them.

Exploring The Area

You will want to spend some time in the nearby cities as well as the outdoors to experience the culture that has grown here. Castle Rock is a small town nestled among the trees that make up the heart of Washington timber country but don't let that fool you. This friendly village has a family-owned and operated winery that offers tastings of its products. Castle Rock also has a lavender farm outside of town where the owners use their flowers to create essential oils, handmade soaps, creams and lotions, and more (you should definitely sample the flavored rock salt and honey products). The town has a selection of restaurants, mostly serving traditional American food, but a few have international cuisines such as Mexican and Chinese food.If you would prefer a city with a little more to offer, head north towards Chehalis which is a short, 30-mile drive away. There are several museums here, one dedicated to the local railroad history and another focusing on war veterans. If you like architecture and nature, there are churches and a cemetery that is well kept and has diverse markers and headstones; one is even crafted from petrified wood. The plots date back as early as the mid-1800s. Chehalis also has a reputable food scene with pub and country kitchen restaurants, cafes and bakeries, and more.Whatever it is you're looking for, either in town or out in the countryside, Cowlitz County has it, and Longview North / Mount Saint Helens KOA is where you'll make it a reality.

Questions about RVs?


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.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
