A city park in Oak Harbor--that sounds interesting if it's not terribly crowded or expensive.
As I recall, it's not too expensive. The roads through the campsites are pretty narrow but that shouldn't bother most of us. Some friends took their class A there and made it all right but felt it was tight. The campsites are heavily wooded with space in between each, I've driven through some time ago but have not camped there.

:Studebaker Truck I had built a raised bed and it got to be a long day driving back from somewhere and I said to My wife Judy we have to pull over, I'm falling asleep were about 10 min. up the road from Manning Park lets pull in there for the night. We parked and crawled into the back but when in back checked the Thermostat which read 18*F, all I can tell u it was cold. Thankfully we packed the winter down comforter and another fuzzy warm blanket, we crawled in with clothing left on as just as cold under the blankets, as we did not have a power source could not use the heater etc. I slept until I could not any longer and I Had to go find a Biffy or the great outdoors, Judy just slep right on, while I almost killed myself getting out the back of the truck, closed the door behind me. I started looking for the old Outhouse's they had here at one time, no luck but I scared the hell out of some deer hiding in amongst the trees or should I say they caused me to spill a bit but I got done just the same and headed back to the Truck, damn door had frozen tight and I could not it open so I went into the cab of the truck and started the engine to warm up took about 15 min before getting warm turned the lights on and there were those deer again I think they wanted to join my in the cab as the heat was working. I looked at the fenders and the ice on them was about 1" thick. I got warm then turned the truck off and found something to pry the rear door open and got back in but only slept to 5AM, I woke Judy up and said we have to hit the road for Hope, BC where we can get a warm cup of tea or coffee she agreed with me.
By the time we got to Hope the ice was gone as must of dropped a few thousand feet and I said I never want to camp in the cold again unless we have heat. You would never believe this we did do it again when we broke down and needed daylight to see the fix. Oh it was cold out. But 119*F can be just as bad.

Good point. We need to start a new thread, which I'll do now.

PS, for the Oak Harbor city park, if it's "Sail-something," as of July 2016 its site says it's been closed for three years due to construction nearby.

Parts of it are closed because of a new sewer plant. It's a great location for some things but probably not suitable for our needs.

Oops. Going to reply to the othervthread.

[/QUOTE:check out Deception Pass and then on to Oak Harbor to see what happened to that nice campground there. Then further down to the Ferry to Port Townsend Because I think there is another fairly large campground beside Ferry, right on the water. I just have to get rid of the Vertigo before doing a trip like that.
