OWhether it’s a way of life or a local weekend getaway, getting to the Washington Coast by motorhome is an adventure worth exploring. Finding the right place to camp is an essential part of planning a successful trip. Friends Landing, located just outside of Montesano in Grays Harbor County, is quiet, safe and accessible for multi-generational enjoyment. It is also much less crowded than other RV parks. This is a great place for RV camping on the way to the Washington coast.

A couple staying at Friends Landing said they had lived and traveled in their RV for 10 years. Since their adventures took them to the scenic Washington State coast, finding this local gem has been a rewarding discovery. They enjoyed biking and walking the 1.7 mile trail surrounding Quigg Lake, which is the heart of the park. The trail is a beloved highlight that winds through wetlands, woods, and meadows. There are several interpretive panels from the viewing docks and it features a beautiful canopy of trees that provide beauty and shade.

Longtime friends of 55 were enjoying a game night next to their nearby lakeside RV sites. The youngsters practiced riding their bikes and enjoyed the well-designed playground. A young man dropped a fishing line while sitting on the quayside of the Chehalis River. There is a centrally located covered pavilion which is a perfect gathering space for meetings and celebrations. Reservations for the pavilion can be booked free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis and offer picnic benches and a barbecue for grilling.

There are 18 motorhome pitches with electric and water hookups and 10 tent pitches with water available at this 152-acre park located just 40 minutes from the state capital of Olympia and 35 minutes from the beaches of the ocean. Two showers are located in the bathrooms, which are well maintained and Wi-Fi is available for guests. All sites offer paved entrances which make this park very accessible.

Make a reservation for your visit and bring your friends to create memories. Jim and Marva Bradley, who live in King County, are back for a second year of RV camping by the lake. They brought along their best friends Tom and Laura Madeo as the two couples enjoyed years of outdoor adventures together. “We love that it’s small, quiet, on the water and less than two hours from our house,” Marva Bradley shares. The two couples enjoyed nightly game nights by Lake Quigg, including a friendly cornhole competition in the grassy area next to their RV. They will be back next year as this place is a great place to congregate.
