Alternate title: An ode to off-season camping
After our glamorous stay at the Walmart parking lot in Moscow, Idaho, we were looking forward to a more scenic location for our next spot. Our final destination was Diablo Lake in the North Cascades but decided to stop around half-way. After pursuing the handy-dandy Washington Camping book , I came across the listing for Steamboat Rock State Park . It's near the Grand Coulee dam but Electric City (who can resist a city name like that!) And we ended up at one of the prettiest campgrounds I've ever seen. With basically no one else in the loop where we settled - probably 6 RV's and tent campers in the entire place. With gorgeous fall leaves, wildlife galore (deer, wild turkeys, ducks, geese, etc) - it was pretty idyllic. Add to that an evening kayak on the river and we were pretty blissed out.
