Lake Easton RV Park, Lake Easton, WA Park Review

Lake Easton happens to be our home park as we're members of Sunrise  Resorts.  It's been over a year or so since we've been there but we have been there many times in the past and have never been disappointed.
We were there usually in the summer time but there's also some winter activities in the area which include cross country skiing, and snowmobiling. And in the summer there are four area lakes with facilities for fishing and water-skiing. And there's supposed to be some local fishing ponds around but we have never seen them of found them so make sure you ask about them..

Lake Easton R.V. Resort is a membership resort associated with  Resorts of Distinction, Coast to Coast, Resort Parks International, Campclub USA and Passport America.  

We stayed for 5 nights at the Lake Easton Resort which is located on the eastern ridge of the Cascade Mountain Range off I90 in the state of Washington. Coming from the east you take exit 70. It's just east of Snoqualmie Pass and is on the south side right next to the freeway.
You can have a nice relaxing time or you can hike, walk, fish or whatever you desire. I highly recommend this park. There's always other RVers to chat with and exchange ideas and experiences. It's truly a friendly place.

The park is set in a nice wooded area; which feels more like camping with a very short walk to the lake. There's a back gate you can go through to make that hike which has a lock on it.  At least the last time we were there it did, so make sure you get the lock combination so you can get to the lake. 

There are showers and a laundry room, too.There are two restaurants across the highway that has very good food and yummy desserts. One is a burger spot that I've heard rave reviews about.. The burger shop has great homemade shakes, too! Don't miss them.  You can walk to the town of Lake Easton for a newspaper as it's not far down the road and a nice chance to go for a walk. It couldn't have been even 1 mile one way.

We found the owner and employees to be exceptionally friendly and the facility very clean and neat

There was plenty to do right in the park and in the clubhouse.  But after Labor Day there are no planned acitivities. The clubhouse is very cozy.  You can work jigsaw puzzles, play cards and games and you can plug in your laptop so you can connect to the Internet. There are cozy sofas and a TV. Don't forget to check out the movies and they have a nice library of books. In the summer time they used to have Saturday and Sunday breakfasts in the clubhouse. So if you're interested, ask about that.  Find out how much they charge, time, etc. There's an indoor hot tub, horseshoes, hiking, biking, children indoor play area, and outdoor playground area.

Pets need to be on a leash but are welcomed.

Make sure you make your reservation before going. They may be made up to 60 days in advance. 
There are resort cabins available to rent.  Call for new rental costs and requirements.  They change sometimes and find out if they are stocked with the necessities. The cabins are A-frames and sleep 4-6. 
Several found their satellite dish worked great despite the trees but I would ask when making a reservation or at check-in which sites are the best for that. There are 50 full RV sites, 100 partial RV sites and 0 dry. The maximum length of your RV is 40 ft. The electricity hook-up is 30 amps and there is water at the sites. Some sites have sewage hook-up and there is a dump station in the park.
So give them a call, make your reservation.  You won't be sorry, I don't think, if you like a wonderful mountain resort feeling. It's on I90 so you do hear the traffic a bit but it's not worth worrying about. It's truly a lovely resort. Why not ask about membership!
The old mining town of Cle Elum and Roslyn appeal to history buffs. The Yakima Valley wine country and picturesque Leavenworth is a short drive away. We did the railroad self-guided tour in Cle Elum, which was fun and very informative.
