LOVE those western Corps of Engineers campgrounds!

Recommended Posts

I just reserved a long pull thru site with hookups (no sewer) along a COE lake on the Snake River near Pasco WA. It is rated "Prime" with mature shade trees and direct beach access. The reservation is for a Wednesday, it is booked solid on other days.




$13.00, then I applied my America The Beautiful Senior Pass discount: $6.50 Total!




There are several other Corps campgrounds along the river, with dispersed primitive camping, completely free.


When we were in the East after collecting Mouse, I hated paying the high rates there.... and low cost campgrounds are virtually non- existent. I enjoyed revisiting TN after 35 years, but I can't say I will miss it any....

When looking for campgrounds I generally look for COE spots first.  With the geezer pass the prices are great, often under $10/night.  Some have FHU, a lot have water and electricity.  Usually off the beaten path, quiet and peaceful.  Mike

Steve.  Be sure to check out the Ho rainforest while there.  Also Paradise Valley, Sequim for the Lavender and for hiking Hurricane ridge.
