One of the great aspects of the Pacific Northwest is that it has awesome indoor as well as outdoor attractions and if this is where you're headed, consider renting an RV in Winthrop and booking a site at Winthrop / N. Cascades National Park KOA. This family-owned and operated RV campground is located next to the Methow River and has access to it, as well as a stand of trees separating the park from the adjacent highway providing quiet and solitude. You and your traveling companions can enjoy the park's activities such as a playground, a horseshoe pitch, and the on-site gem mining that represents the area's mining history. If you want to head into Winthrop, leave your RV rental behind and take the park's shuttle bus instead.Getting your rental motorhome set up is an easy task; you can choose between sites with full hookups or just water and electrical hookups. Once you arrive, you can use the laundry facilities to get ready for the days ahead, and there is a pet area where your canine companions can burn off some pent up energy from the trip. An on-site pool is available to you from approximately mid-May to mid-October. Firewood is available if you'd like to relax in the traditional camping way and you can rent bicycles to venture out a bit farther or go tubing in the Methow River if you'd like something more exciting than the pool.Just a short distance outside of the campground, you'll find opportunities to hike or mountain bike the local trails or take a more leisurely stroll through the Okanogan National Forest. There is a golf course not far away where you can get in a quick nine or 18 holes; if you'd rather be browsing, the Methow Valley has designer stores and thrift shops, outdoor gear venues, cafes, and much more. Winthrop has an active city life which you'll enjoy, with concerts and farmers markets, vintage car shows, rodeos, and more. You can take a walking tour of the town and enjoy its wooden sidewalks and other frontier accessories that will take you back to the town's beginnings in the 1800s.

RV rentals in Okanogan County are exactly what you will need to have the perfect Pacific Northwest vacation. Start by heading your rental campervan north to Pearrygin Lake State Park where tendrils of early morning mist rise off of the lake as the sun slowly appears. The lake has a glassy calm to it and is surrounded by rolling hills providing a moderately difficult (or easy, depending on your ability) hike through a shrub-steppe landscape. Fishing is also popular here, and if you happen to be here in the winter, the park also allows visitors to enjoy snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.A short distance to the west, you can find a more challenging hiking environment at Lake Chelan National Recreation Area. You can drive to the entrance on Highway 20 but will have to hike the rest of the way in. On the way in, you will pass McGregor Mountain where you can hike your way to the peak, about eight miles in each direction. The peak sits at more than 6,500 feet and has incredible views of the surrounding alpine vegetation. Continue on, and you will make your way to the Stehekin Valley and the north end of Lake Chelan, but this is a longer trip that will likely require several days to make it there and back. Proper footwear and water are strongly suggested, even if you just climb McGregor Mountain before returning.If you follow Highway 20 past Omak and continue north, you can spend some time in Sinlahekin Wildlife Area, a lush river valley and rich ecosystem where you will see waterfowl, big game, and plant species by the hundreds. While you're here, you can hike along the riverbank or kayak or canoe in the river. There is also a watershed here, Coulee Creek, although you may not be able to see it as the water often flows underground and is only visible at select times of the year.
When it's time to start thinking about heading indoors and where to eat, start your quest in Twisp, eight miles south of Winthrop / N. Cascades National Park KOA. This quaint little town has a live community theater which also hosts concerts and other events year-round, and for the shoppers in your group, a specialty quilting and gift shop. The town's restaurant scene has a small but varied number of eateries offering Asian and Mexican food, pub fare, Italian, pizzerias, and more.Approximately 40 to 50 miles or so farther south, you can head to Brewster and enjoy the hospitality of this slightly larger but still quaint town. The village has a popular links-style golf course with wide fairways and a smaller but still efficient restaurant industry with some larger chain-style venues. However, most of the eateries are smaller and locally owned and operated. There is a small but noticeable preference here for Mexican food, but you'll also find a pub restaurant, a pizzeria and bakery, and an espresso outlet.Small-town friendliness and amazing outdoor scenery, Okanogan County in Washington State has it all, and Winthrop / N. Cascades National Park KOA is at the center of it all.
