Olympic Peninsula / Port Angeles KOA

If Washington State is your RV camping destination, consider heading for the Olympic Peninsula and Olympic Peninsula / Port Angeles KOA. This cozy RV park offers all the quiet relaxation you desire only minutes away from the city features you need. You can start your vacation the moment you arrive by heading for the park's swimming pool and hot tub, right after taking your furry family member for a stroll in the dog park. There's a kids' playground where children can work off their restlessness and a camp store where you can restock your supplies, top up your propane, and get firewood for your arrival campfire. Use the camp Wi-Fi to stay connected, or rent a bicycle and tour the rest of the campground.There are numerous on-site activities such as basketball and volleyball courts, a mini-golf course, a horseshoe pitch, and more. There's a recreation room in case the weather isn't cooperating and a pavilion and a community fire pit where you can meet other park guests at the staff-organized social events (outdoor big-screen movies, wagon rides, and more). Some of the RV sites have full hookups, others have just water and electric hookups, and you can choose between pull-through and back-in sites. You can freshen up after your arrival with the restrooms and showers and use the laundry facilities to get clean clothes.Start your vacation by having a look at the immediate surroundings which are impressive. Olympic National Park / Hurricane Ridge is close by and offers you a glimpse of rainforest valleys, mountain peaks, glaciers, and beaches on the scenic Pacific Ocean which can be both serene and exciting. The park hosts a variety of wildlife which you'll have an opportunity to witness, but there is an animal sanctuary that cares for endangered and non-endangered species, some of which have been silver screen alumni. Consider stopping your motorhome rental in nearby Port Angeles, which has history and an underground area that was created when the downtown area was elevated. The buildings were forgotten until they were rediscovered and renovated. From here, you can also take a ferry across the Canadian border to the city and provincial capital Victoria, which has both indoor and outdoor attractions that are stunning.

The Great Outdoors

While you're visiting the Olympic Peninsula, you won't have to look further than Olympic National Park to find your outdoor adventures. This national treasure is quite simply immense and could occupy your entire vacation seeing everything that there is to see within it. Begin your excursion by aiming your RV rental towards the Olympic National Park Visitor Center in Port Angeles, where you can obtain information and have questions answered. Continue heading south into the park on Hurricane Ridge Road; the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center is about 30 miles into the park. At this center, you can expect to see exhibits demonstrating the various habitats that exist on Olympic Mountain and access a snack bar, a gift shop, and short trails heading out from the center in multiple directions. The trails can have snowbanks as late as May, so be sure to dress appropriately.If you want to treat yourself while RV camping here, consider heading for Olympic Hot Springs, a short drive and even shorter hike from Olympic Peninsula / Port Angeles KOA. There are more than a dozen seepages where you can test the water or even take a dip; temperatures range from lukewarm to more than 130 degrees Fahrenheit. These hot springs are not managed, so you should exercise caution if you decide to use them. You will probably want to keep your camper rental nearby so you can clean up afterward.If you're looking for something outdoorsy that is more cultivated and less rugged, head east past Sequim and continue on to Miller Peninsula State Park. This park was developed and designed with the help of public input and has a number of looping trails that can be combined for shorter or longer hikes. The trails eventually lead to a beach where you can listen to the surf crashing into the shore; on a clear day, you may even be able to see Mount Baker. One of the trails leads through a lush ravine and around a pond; pay attention to signage as some areas near or off of the trail may be private property.

Exploring The Area

Search for an RV in Clallam County, and you can find the motorhome rental that is perfectly suited to your preferences. Once you've had your fill of the outdoors, it's time to start checking out the indoor scene, and Port Townsend is a good place to start. The city has an Art-Deco museum, a museum of art and history, and the Northwest Maritime Center, which houses exhibits of wooden boats and various maritime memorabilia. It has an attached store that sells maritime charts and clothing, books, boat fittings, and much more (such as coffee and pastries). The city has a thriving restaurant scene; most of the venues serve American-style food, although there are a few international cuisines on hand.Head in the other direction if you're seeking something small and quieter; Joyce is a small town on the way to the northernmost tip of not only the peninsula but the country too. It lies on the Strait of Juan de Fuca and has access to scenic beach areas, canoeing and kayaking, and other water-based activities. There are fewer restaurants here, but they are locally owned and operated and serve delicious comfort food in relaxed surroundings.The Olympic Peninsula is where you will experience the grandness of the outdoors and the comforts of small and large towns; Olympic Peninsula / Port Angeles KOA is where you can begin it all.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

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.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

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.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

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.
