Washington’s Olympic Peninsula is an ideal place to visit when renting an RV - soaring peaks, bucolic beach towns, a rainforest, and it’s all within a couple of hours' drive of the Seattle metropolitan area. To see everything there is to see on the peninsula, you can book an RV in Grays Harbor County, putting you in the center of all the action. If you’re looking for coastal camping with your RV rental, you can’t do much better than Ocean City and the Oceana RV and Camping Resort.Only a ten-minute walk from the Pacific Coast, Oceana RV and Camping Resort offers the very best in RV camping. Many of their sites have full hookups with 50-amp electrical capacity, and for those without sewer, there’s a communal dump station to empty your tanks. If you need to do some laundry, this RV campground has washers and dryers, along with restrooms and shower facilities.Just as important though are the great recreational facilities at Oceana RV and Camping Resort, like volleyball courts, a playground, and a horseshoe pit. Most visitors to the Olympic Peninsula are coming for the beautiful surroundings, and you’ll barely need to step outside the campground to find excellent nature trails running parallel to the beach.

The first thing you’ll want to do outside when camping at Oceana RV and Camping Resort is to explore the beach. Wander north from the campground, and you’ll find a wide strip of sand teeming with wildlife and sea creatures – perfect for bird watching, building sandcastles, or posting up with a good book. Go south, and you’ll eventually run into a more developed coastline with souvenir shops and cafes. For a little adventure, consider renting a jet ski and cruising the shoreline.Another option is to rent a kayak, and while paddling into the big waves that occasionally pummel the shores of Ocean City would be a tad risky, the protected waters of Grays Harbor are perfect for newbie sea kayakers. Rental shops dot the coastline, and you’re sure to find a kayak that fits you and your level of experience.Olympic National Park dominates the Olympic Peninsula, covering nearly its entire central region, and is a must-visit attraction when camping with an RV here. There are several entrances to the park, each a gateway to wildly different landscapes – snowy peaks at Hurricane Ridge in the north, the Hoh Rainforest near its western entrance, or massive Douglas firs around the southeast entrance of Staircase. Olympic National Park is nothing if not a land of contrasts, and it would take months to explore its many trails. Start by figuring out which biome of the park is most interesting to you and then focus your route planning on that region.If the national park feels too crowded, especially during the peak tourist season in July and August, just head a little east, to Capitol State Forest. While you won’t find a rainforest within its borders, it has some spectacular hiking trails along with the mysterious Mima Mounds. The natural occurring dirt mounds are about five feet tall by 50 feet wide, and no one is quite sure how they got there; some think gophers, others believe they were caused by an earthquake, but the jury is still out, and you’re free to speculate during your visit.
Ocean City is a fairly tiny community without too much excitement; it’s why a lot of people move here in the first place. There are a few grocery stores, a couple of gas stations at its southern end, and several restaurants just south of town in the more populous Ocean Shores. As a tourist though, you’ll need to venture outside the city limits if you want to do anything more than lounge on the beach.The closest town with a sizable population is Aberdeen, about half an hour's drive away. It’s most famous for being the hometown of Kurt Cobain, lead singer of Seattle grunge band Nirvana. It also has a few museums, cultural centers, and bars that are worth seeing if you’re putting together a day trip when you camp in an RV near Ocean City. If you like live theater, check the schedule at the Driftwood Players Theater or the D&R Theater, both of which offer excellent performances put on by community members in an intimate setting.A 90-minute drive from the RV park is the state capital of Olympia, which has the most urban amenities in the region outside of Seattle. If you’re traveling with kids, visit the Hands-On Children Museum, which is full of interactive exhibits covering everything from aquatic life to fire trucks to the dentist’s office. Little ones that are anxious from too much time cooped up in a vehicle will love the chance to run around and be free to touch everything.
