Whether you’re living the digital nomad dream or looking for a sweet place to park your ride over spring break, these RV parks in Washington will fit your free-wheeling lifestyle. Wonder where the road will take you next? Try one of these spots that have families in mind.

Pacific Beach State Park – Pacific Beach

If crashing waves lulling you to sleep sounds like the ideal bedtime soundtrack for your little beach bums, it doesn’t get better than Pacific Beach. Alongside 41 RV sites, you’ll find an expansive sandy stretch as far as the eye can see. Your Littles will spend hours here flying kites, digging holes, skim boarding in the shallows and splashing in the waves. Dig up clams for your site-side dinner (in season of course), and plan a bonfire on the beach for s’mores when you’re done. Ocean side rules!
