Discover Spanaway


On the outskirts of Tacoma, and an hour's drive south of Seattle lies the large, unincorporated community of Spanaway. The area was first settled by people from the east in the middle of the 19th century. Spanaway is only the latest name in a long succession of previously scrapped titles, like Spanueh Lake, Bushalier, and Lake Park.

Spanaway is mostly a collection of residential neighborhoods, lacking the infrastructure or governmental buildings you might find in larger towns. However, the small community in Washington is recognized for its great beauty, natural surroundings, and excellent location. In fact, Spanaway has been forever linked with nearby Mount Rainier for over 100 years, as it was an instrumental part of the journey for citizens of Seattle to journey to the newly created national park. When you book an RV in Spanaway, you’ll have the freedom to tour the region and craft your adventure to your standards.

The Great Outdoors

There are so many delightful things to see and places to visit when you rent an RV in Spanaway, or anywhere in Washington for that matter. The state is among the most naturally beautiful places you could imagine, known for its rich evergreen forests and colossal mountain peaks. A fine place to start your trip right is Alder Lake Park, located south of Spanaway on the shores of Alder Lake. The lake itself is quite gorgeous, with shimmering waters that reflect the massive mountains in the background. There are several campgrounds and day use areas at Alder Lake, with lots of winding trails for hiking and mountain biking. Camping out in your Spanaway camper rental is an excellent way to reach a state of relaxation, and bathing in the fresh lake water is a nice way to cool off in the summertime. Lake Tapps Park is another local lakefront park with lots of fun activities. There are exquisite beaches, BBQ grills, picnic areas, pavilions, grassy fields, and even boat launches to help people bring their watercraft to the lake.

The real heavy hitters of Washington are the national parks that call the Evergreen State home. Olympic National Park is one of the best parks in the entire Pacific Northwest, with an eclectic mix of ecosystems and biomes scattered throughout the park. There are rocky coastlines teeming with marine life, murky wetlands, tidal mangroves, temperate rainforests, glacial lakes, and, of course, the stars of the show: the Olympic Mountains themselves. You can try to climb one of these snowcapped giants, but not many people are capable of such a feat. There are hundreds of miles of hiking trails and several camping areas to make use of when you need a cozy place to stay in your Spanaway RV rental by owner.

Mount Rainier National Park is the other jewel of Washington, found about an hour's drive east of Spanaway. The central feature in the park is, of course, Mount Rainier with which it shares a name. This hulking stratovolcano remains active and is the tallest mountain in all of Washington. The volcano is also the most prominent feature in the contiguous United States and is climbable for those that are brave enough to endure its fury. You won’t have a problem finding camping spots in this majestic park, so feel free to stay as long as you want in the comfort of your Spanaway RV rental.

RV Friendly

When you first arrive in town and pick up your Spanaway camper rental, you’ll want to get situated and find where you will be staying before you do anything else. Luckily there are a few options nearby. South Prairie RV Park has a creek flowing through it, and over 20 miles of nature trails for guests to use. There is a convenience store and deli so you can pick up food and supplies during your stay.

Rainier View Adult RV Park is accurately named, as it enjoys stunning views of the volcano. There are lots of stores, restaurants, and golf courses nearby, and a whole range of outdoor activities like hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, and boating.

Rainbow RV Resort is south of Spanaway close to Mount Rainier and has a general store, a tackle shop for fishing, handicap accessible docks, and a large event hall. You can rent canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, and electric motor boats to go fishing on the lake.

City Attractions

Spanaway is mostly a collection of homes and residential areas, so if you are hoping to paint the town and indulge in some fun-filled nightlife, you might be disappointed. The city of Tacoma is a short drive from Spanaway however, so you definitely have options when you rent an RV in the area. The Washington State History Museum is a fabulous resource for anyone hoping to discover the past of Washington. Hands-on displays and informative exhibits recount the stories of the native tribes of Washington, along with the Lewis & Clark Expedition and the first settlers.

The Museum of Glass is a bizarre looking building from the moment you set eyes on it, twisting upwards in a large cone formation. There are thousands of pieces of art throughout the museum, with a focus on glass art.

The LeMay America’s Car Museum is a must-visit location for all car aficionados. Consistently ranked among the best museums in the state, this state-of-the-art facility has four levels with rotating displays and hundreds of classic muscle cars.
