Seeking Ideas for a Seattle Meet
 
Hi, all,

Interested in a Seattle-area fiberglass trailer meet-up?


We've had a number of suggestions on a different thread, including:

Deception Pass State Park Oak Harbor Island
Kayak Point State Park
Wenburg County Park
Denny Creek Campground in the National Forest By North Bend

And then there are the suggestions that require a ferry ride or a long drive-around. We'd prefer NOT to do either. Think "Seattle"



Questions include:

1. WHEN (avoiding other local meets and gatherings)
2. WHERE (park recommendations should include # of sites and utilities
offered, as well as any special features like a waterfront)
3. FACILITIES needed
4. ACTIVITIES preferred
5. NAME of gathering

ALL replies will e considered!
Also, if anyone else out there would be interested in hosting this, please let me know!

BEST
Kai

From Taidnapam thread:

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. :confused:
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.

Part of the challenge here is to get an estimate of how many. Count us in. May and September work best for us because of other commitments.

I'd most likely go but not May or late June. September would work (and it isn't too late to reserve for September 2017).

How many people does it need to work for? (I realize that is part of the equation but it is hard to suggest places without some idea of how many sites is enough.)

We're all in on this idea! Any of the places listed are good. Also check out Flowing Lake Snohomish County Park. We've been to Denny Creek and I believe all the utility sites are power only, no water. Just sayin. We love that one!

Dave Fish, I agree, the city park probably not going to be right. September does sound likely.


Bobbie, Looks like it may well be September 2017, agreed, lots of time.


Alan and Barb, Adding Flowing Lake Snohomish County Park to the list, will check it out online. September okay?


So far that makes 4 rigs including ours.


Denny Creek utility sites, upper loop and group sites do only have power, water is available "close by." They also have trash bins, which not all National Forest parks do. The "main" restroom has flush toilets and cold-water sinks...the group site toilet is a stack.


Agreed, getting an idea of how many rigs is important to choosing the park.

Sounds like fun.

We could also do a day-trip get together right in town.

Discovery Park at the Northwest end of Magnolia is a good one for that as it has some large parking lots that are mostly empty and easy to get in and out of. Plenty of space right next to the parking to set up some pop up shelters for a pot luck meal.

K C -- that's an idea! A local daycation.

Daycation is easy since you can do it on shorter notice without reservations if you choose a place with lots of parking room. Plus it is budget friendly.

You can overnight in the nearby neighborhoods on the street but not with the trailer detached. As long as your trailer is not over 80" wide it can be parked while hooked up to the car in a residential neighborhood in the city of Seattle. Over 80" wide and you have to go to the industrial zoned areas of town.

There is RV camping right in the Seattle metropolitan area and it is a water front location. Salt Water Park in the Des Moines neighborhood. This is a Washington State park. It has 47 sites. The only issue is jet noise since it is south of the airport but not immediately adjacent. Take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper :)

But it does have showers, hookups, cafe, espresso stand.

No way would you be able to do a late reservation, it is a popular place since it is right in town. Not sure why it does not show up on websites with RV camping referral for Seattle.

A daytime potluck/ meet and greet would work for us, too. We're pretty open on when for a camping trip, too. "Stickless in Seattle" might not convey the spirit well. "Seattle Area Gathering " has a negative acronym. And could make it sound too exclusive? If September were chosen, Autumn Washington Event would have an AWEsome acronym! Oh yes, getting ahead of things is so me....

Seattle City Slicker Roundup :floor

That does not sound very "exclusive". Our fiberglass exterior is slick. It is a good western sounding name that pokes fun at ourselves.

Have not been to Salt Water SP since sometime in the early 70's. Dash Point is also an option on the south side. We camped there a few years ago when we had the Casita and would not mind going back. We were next to a large, open double site that would be perfect for group events.

Stude mentioned a campground next to the Coupeville ferry on the Taidnapam thread. That would be Fort Casey SP. it's a large and interesting park with a fairly small campground. Only a few sites have water and electric and there is no sewer or dump station.

Fort Casey- reservations only through mid-Sept.

Salt Water- I heard it was pretty much partying on weekends. Don't recall where I heard that or whether it is true.
