Hubby Jeff and I are looking to get away for a few days. Nowhere too far, maybe 50-100 miles or so from Tri-Cities.

Where are the best campsites not too far from Tri-Cities?

We're not looking to go far. We just need to get away from home. Somewhere near a creek or river, or even a small lake would be cool. We know, we have Columbia Park, nearby. Maybe somewhere a little further out would be great.


We asked on Facebook, and a lot of you replied.

What do you know about Bumping Lake Campground?

I'm glad they have flushing toilets. This place is on my list, not just because of running water, though. See below.

Have you ever been to Peach Beach RV Park, near Goldendale?

According to the website:

Peach Beach Campground & RV Park is located on the beautiful Columbia River in the Columbia River Gorge in south-central Washington. Surrounded by fragrant peach orchards, this privately owned park is known both for its quiet and friendly atmosphere and its exciting range of activities including windsurfing, kiteboarding, boating, swimming, biking, and wine-tasting.

While I've never gone wine-tasting on a camping outing, remember, we are in the heart of wine country! So, let's continue the tour. I was also turned onto Mardon Resort, not too far from Moses Lake.


We are located on the sunny shores of Potholes Reservoir located in Central Washington about 16 miles SW of Moses Lake, I-90 Exit 179. Potholes Reservoir is a 28,000-acre man-made lake contained by O’Sullivan Dam, which is the longest earthen-filled dam in the United States. This lake is perfect for all water sports, fishing and just taking in the sun.
