West Coast RV Camping In October

Sep 24, 2016

Just north of Long Beach Washington about 3 hours southwest of Seattle is the small coastal community of Ocean Park. This town has several great RV spots and some almost right on the beach. Pack up the RV and head to the ocean for some of the best camping of the year! Why? Well, October is a unique time of year. You never know what kind of weather we’re going to get. On sunny, warm days you can play in the water or get dirty in the sand and on foggy, misty days, nothing beats layering up the jackets and hoodies and taking a stroll along the beach with the waves crashing and turning. Winter and Fall storms bring in unique items so beach-combing is a great beach activity this time of year. Ocean Park also has Whale watching tours and cruises. You can ride into the open Pacific Ocean to search and see whales, dolphins, sea lions and lots of other sea life.

In Long Beach, just a few miles south, check out the Harbor Tours, where you can view the Long Beach skyline and check out the world famous Queen Mary and lots more.

Cape Disappointment is just a few miles farther south where you can both stay in the RV park and take on a great history lesson at the lighthouse or the Coast Guard Station.

To top it all off, if you don’t plan on cooking in your RV you can always enjoy fantastic food like the Serious Pizza at the State Park, fabulous fine dining Italian at the Depot Restaurant or casual fair right on the beach at The Pickled Fish. Of course, if you do plan on cooking, grab some oysters up at Oysterville to the north of Ocean Park and barbeque them right at your camp spot. Another great West Coast destination is Seabrook. Nestled between Ocean Shores and Pacific Beach, Seabrook is its own little community with cottage rentals overlooking the ocean. But, there are multiple RV parks both north and south of this great community that features a restaurant, café, shops and beach access. This is a great place to visit in the Fall as the waves are crashing and you can enjoy the beach in all its glory.

Grab breakfast at the Red Velvet Bakery or take some home for a cozy breakfast in the RV complete with hot coffee or tea. Leave the kids at the RV (if they’re old enough) and enjoy wine tasting at Stowaway Wine Bar & Cheese Shop, then take some home for a late night snack while binge watching your favorite show on the RV Big Screen.

West Coast camping in Fall doesn’t have to be a wet, soggy mess. Get out there, Adventure awaits! Find out what kind of deals we currently have for an RV perfect for you and your family.
