When I was working on our west coast trip planning over a year ago, I knew one of the spots I wanted to see was Crater Lake. I made reservations to stay at the National Park Campground a year in advance to ensure I got a spot since they only had a limited number to handle our 38ft RV. I built the rest of the trip mostly around this particular stop. So we left British Columbia and traveled through the Everett, WA, where we did the Boeing factory tour. We stayed at a nice RV Campground in Everett on a small pond with plenty of grass for the dogs.
The other thing we were able to do was to restock some items courtesy of Amazon Locker that was right across the street.
They don’t allow cameras on the tour of the production facility, it was well worth the 20 bucks to see the production lines.
We met up with some friends and went to the local farmer’s market
Then we headed east to the middle of WA and then turned south to the Columbia river and into OR. We stated at the state park on the Deschutes River which was a major location for the pioneers coming west from Idaho and beyond. They had a huge grass field and the dogs loved going and playing with the sprinklers, even though they would get soaking wet.
After a week, we traveled south to Crater Lake for our long awaited stop on this western swing.
