Steamboat Rock State Park

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.

Flannel, Fall Color, and an Airstream just go together!
