This gorgeous campground is set right along the Columbia River in teh heart of Washington’s wine region. This isn’t the wet Pacific Northwest you’ve heard of — there’s actually little rainfall in this region of central Washington surrounded by towering basalt cliffs, sandy river beaches, and views of the Cascade mountains.
Crescent Bar RV Resort is in the Thousand Trails portfolio, but don’t despair if you’re not a member. They do offer a limited number of sites to the public at RVontheGo.com although you will pay a premium. While you can (and should) make a reservation for this seasonal campground, the actual sites are first come, first serve.
Tip: Although most waterfront sites are privately owned, the rental sites across from them still give you a pretty open view of the water.
In addition to full-hookup with 30amp power, they also offer primitive sites if you are self-contained. There are also cabins available to rent for those without an RV.
Crescent Bar RV Resort has amenities for all campers–children and adults alike. These include a club house with gaming tables (pool and foosball) and free wifi, as well as basketball and tennis courts.
During the summer months, there is a pool to enjoy and an ADULTS-ONLY hot tub. This hot tub is in a completely separate area from the pool. While that does make walking between the two a little inconvenient, but we actually preferred that over kids taking cannonballs into the hot tub while we are trying to relax. Kiddos are wonderful and we enjoy watching them have fun in the pool, but having an adults only space is a wonderful perk!
Each month there is a calendar of events with changing activities, from Taco Tuesday to fun outdoor options. If you have bikes, the park is also connected to a wonderful bike path that takes you all along the river.
You can also ride your bikes down the road by the Cherry trees. If you time the season right, you may even get to taste one or two!
Quincy, Washington is a beautiful area, especially if you are a wine lover! We had no idea it was such a big wine region, but there are a handful of options to choose from within a short drive of the park. We visited Jones of Washington and Beaumont Cellars.
The most popular option in the area is Cave B and though we didn’t visit, we heard that it is the best place to go for local events, concerts and wine tastings.
There is also a beautiful golf course directly across from Crescent Bar RV Resort that is open to the public. We only had a few days to explore the area and loved the park so much that we spent a whole day doing nothing but relaxing. I am sure there are tons of other awesome options nearby, but we will have to wait until next time to explore more!
We would highly recommend a stop through Quincy and a stay at Crescent Bar RV Resort if you are ever nearby!
