This is a wonderful campground on the banks of the Columbia River east of the Cascades in Washington state that Sharon and I discovered a dozen years ago, and resolved to revisit. Back then we didn’t have an RV and I was still working, so our trips out west were whirlwind tours with no time to stop and savor the beautiful sights we were seeing. This month we finally made if back with our Roadtrek and enough time to enjoy it.
This is a county park, one of a series of 14 parks developed and administered by the Chelan County Public Utilities Department, and I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s beautifully landscaped and maintained, a huge swath of green lawn on the riverbank. Here the river is basically going through a desert – annual rainfall here is 11.4 inches – but they have this vast system of underground sprinklers and an aggressive lawn maintenance approach that makes for a beautiful setting. the lawn is the most striking feature of the park.
