The Great Outdoors

Camp in an RV near Lynden and drive east to explore the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, which extends for more than 140 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range. It consists of four ranger districts and numerous wilderness areas that protect its soaring mountain peaks (including Mount Baker and Glacier Peak), as well as large numbers of glaciers and snowfields. Due to its proximity to Vancouver and easy road access, the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest is one of the most visited national forests in the United States, with everything from hiking to mountaineering, river rafting, fishing, and bird watching on offer.The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest shares its eastern border with the North Cascades National Park, which sprawls across more than 500,000 acres. Explore along the North Cascades Highway, which accesses various lookouts where you can soak up the glacier and lake views, or stretch your legs along the steep and challenging Thunder Creek Trail. In the south of the forest is the Lake Chelan National Recreation Area while the Skagit River flows through the Ross Lake National Recreation Area in the north. Aside from rugged mountain peaks, glacial-carved lakes, and dense conifer forests, the national forest is also home to grizzly bears, gray wolves, and more than 200 recorded bird species.Camping at Lynden / Bellingham KOA is also a good base for exploring the San Juan Islands, which scatter off the west coast of Washington in the Pacific Ocean. While there are more than 170 islands in the area, only a few are served by ferries, including San Juan Island, Orcas Island, Lopez Island, and Shaw Island. Discover the old-growth forests of Moran State Park on Orcas Island or spot orcas playing in the waters from Lime Kiln Point State Park on San Juan Island. Aside from exploring the charming cafes, art galleries, and historical museum in Lopez Village, you can also visit the Little Red Schoolhouse on laid-back Shaw Island.

Exploring the City

Lynden campers can pick up grocery supplies at one of the small supermarkets in the heart of Lynden, which is also home to a couple of cafes and a pizzeria if you want to dine out. There are also gas stations if you need to fill up your RV rental, with a handful of fast food restaurants in the shopping mall on the western edge of town.Interested in local history? Stop in at the Lynden Pioneer Museum, which details the city’s establishment in 1871, as well as its timber, dairy, and raspberry production industries. Learn about its former title of having the most churches per square mile/per capita in the world, then stroll through the town to admire the Dutch-inspired architecture that includes a large windmill.Camp in an RV near Lynden and use it as a base for visiting Vancouver, which lies just an hour’s drive across the border in Canada. Browse the outstanding collection of First Nations artifacts at the Museum of Anthropology or admire the works by local and regional artists on display at the Vancouver Art Gallery. You can follow the Sea-to-Sky scenic drive from downtown Vancouver to the ski town of Whistler or get some exercise on the Grouse Grind, a challenging staircase that leads to the top of Grouse Mountain. Rent a bicycle and cycle around picturesque Stanley Park, then splurge in the high-end restaurants and boutiques that cluster in Gastown.Whether you want to explore the rugged landscapes of northern Washington or head across the border to sight-see in Vancouver, book an RV in Whatcom County and start planning your next vacation.

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.
