Looking for something fun to do in the RV with your family this summer? Are all the campsites booked at your favorite camping destinations? Looking for somewhere different to camp that offers a variety of activities and places to go?  Then book a camping space at the inaugural Enumclaw RV Show August 1st – 4th at the Enumclaw Expo Center and enjoy everything the show and surrounding areas have to offer.

Camping well and eating well simply go hand in hand. There’s just something about eating a great meal that’s been prepared outside as you enjoy being outside. Why not make a meal as epic as your surroundings? You don’t need to spend a lot of money on fancy outdoor gadgets, many of the same pots, and pans you use every day make the transition to camp cooking just fine. Bring whole foods, real plates and cups, and your “A Game,” … and maybe a few wash tubs.

First Camping Trip of the Season

It’s official! We’re back in camping season! My husband, 2-year-old son and I kicked off the season with a trip to Quincy Lakes. Life seems like it’s been extra busy, so lots of relaxation was on the menu. We pretty much made plans to not make plans and just enjoy our time however we wanted. Typically we plan more activities that get us up and going, but since I’m in the third trimester, pregnant with our soon to be daughter, a laid-back camping trip was gladly welcomed.

Many RVers here in the Northwest feel the freedom of going where you want, when you want is a thing of the past. I will agree that setting off on an extended RV trek without locking yourself into a rigid schedule via advanced overnight reservations is not what it once was when there were fewer RVs roaming the highways and byways competing for campsites. However, I have developed some strategies that allow my wife and I to continue living the carefree RV lifestyle of hitting the road with no reservations or a set daily itinerary while still visiting popular sites and attractions along our route.

Part of the allure of RVing is discovering those out of the way, little known places located throughout the Northwest.

White River Falls is the official name but it has also been called Tygh Valley Falls, Middle White River Falls and Celestial Falls. Whatever the name, it is one of Oregon’s best-kept secrets.

The falls are in White River Falls State Park, which also includes an old gristmill and an abandoned hydroelectric plant. The park is open from early spring to early fall.
