Discover Tumwater, WA


Tumwater, Washington, is a mid-sized city located just south of Lacey and Olympia, the state’s capital. Though Olympia is, unsurprisingly, one of the most well-known cities in The Evergreen State, its quieter neighbor Tumwater predates some of Washington’s largest metropolitan areas. If you’re looking to explore the oldest settlement in the state, book an RV in Tumwater to discover the city’s cozy suburban areas and rugged outdoor beauty.

Since Tumwater is nestled near the convergence of the Deschutes River and Budd’s Inlet, visitors can enjoy vistas of these bodies of water from just about anywhere in the city. Those looking to rent an RV in Tumwater can enjoy the best of both worlds during their stay: the convenience of Interstate 5, which travels right through the heart of town, as well as quiet neighborhoods where campers can enjoy a restful night’s sleep after a long day of traveling.

The Great Outdoors

The city got its name from the Chinook pidgin word tumwater, which roughly translates to “waterfall” -- and you can expect to see plenty of waterfalls when you rent a motorhome in Tumwater.

Marvel at the sight of the Deschutes River cascading more than 80 feet into Capitol Lake at the aptly named Tumwater Falls Park. Traverse the park’s trails, which pass through wooded wonderland and along footbridges, offering sweeping views of picturesque waterfalls, boulders, and reflective pools. Guided riverwalk tours provide more information on the park’s historical significance and its wildlife, including the Chinook salmon native to the region.

Offering a change of scenery and terrain, Isabella Bush Park is home to roughly 20 acres of wetlands and pastoral charm. Trek the park’s half-mile trail and watch for wildlife along the way -- the area is somewhat of a haven for birdwatchers. The park also boasts a unique feature: a working farm operated and maintained in partnership with a local youth farming program.

Overlook Point Park is one of the city’s most popular destinations for avid hikers and sightseers. Picnickers flock to the overlook to soak up the ambiance of this peaceful park and snap photos of the breathtaking Olympic Mountain range in the distance. To access the park, visitors can choose to walk or drive to the top of Tumwater Hill, and though the hike is steep and challenging, the views from the top make the legwork well worth it.
