Pacific Northwest Camping || 4 Great Spots

 Pacific Northwest Camping || Fall and Winter

 

Summer is ending, but that doesn’t mean that the camping season is over. Fall and Winter can be great times to get away for a little while and reconnect with nature – or maybe just take your mind off of work for a few days. It can be tricky to pick out the best spots to camp, so we’ve put together a collection of 4 great Pacific Northwest camping spots for you to explore in the off season.

Cape Disappointment

Don’t let the name fool you- Cape Disappointment is anything but disappointing. With plenty of explore, you’ll have a blast at this State Park. The park has old military ruins to explore, an interactive museum, and plenty of trails to hike. You’re never very far from civilization either, so if you’re worried about being too disconnected from the rest of the world you can set that aside and relax!

Crater Lake National Park

No Pacific Northwest camping trip would be complete without seeing Crater Lake. Depending on when the winter storms settle in, Crater Lake has several different options to choose from when it comes to camping! The upper rims are closed off by November 1st at the very latest, but the Mazama campground is still open year round. If you’re into snowshoeing or snowmobiling, there’s plenty to do even after the snow covers the grounds. Crater Lake is one of the PNW’s most gorgeous parks in Summer, it’s still a must-see in Fall and Winter.

 

Larrabee State Park

Larrabee offers a spectacular view of the Samish Bay and the San Juan Islands. There’s plenty to do from kayaking to hiking, and the park even offers showers! The park is open year round, so you don’t have to worry about getting in before it closes for the season. A Lost Campers campervan would be perfect for settling down to admire the sea on the coastline.

Mt. Hood National Forest

Mt. Hood is gorgeous all on its own, but the forest surrounding it is filled with things to do. Hike to Tamanawas Falls to enjoy one of the many beautiful waterfalls Oregon has to offer. If you’re camping in the colder seasons, you can also snowshoe and ski in the area! Pack to suit the season, and you’ll stay warm in one of our campervans.

Campervan Rental Testimonial

 

“We rented a camper van for our 5 day trip to the Olympic Peninsula, it was perfect!”

Sara K.:  5 Stars***** Lost Campers, Campervan Rental Testimonial

Seattle Campervan Rental Testimonial - Lost Campers Seattle Campervan Budget Rental TestimonialsHotels in the summer were either too expensive or completely booked and this solved our lodging and transportation needs. Booking online was easy and the day of our pickup we got extensive information about both the van and emergency procedures should we have a technical problem. The staff at this location is helpful and friendly.

My husband and I could sleep comfortably in the back, we are average height 5’10” ish. The bed was easy to set up and break down every day, and even in the summer we slept comfortably at night with just a window open.

The kitchen setup was basics, utensils, plates, cups etc. We cooked several evenings without difficulty, and were able to all our perishables in the cooler provided.

If you want to travel to the area and camp this is a great setup, convenient and easy. The pickup location in Kent is convenient to the airport, it was only about a 15-20 minute Lyft ride. I would consider booking a similar van from one of their other locations if we decide to book a similar trip.”
