Low Cost Campgrounds in the Northwest

 Low Cost Campgrounds in Washington & Oregon

Camping can be a great way to get out & explore the outdoors as a family and go to new & different areas. It’s also a way to just get away from the hustle & bustle of life & have a relaxing & low-key vacation. What we love about camping is that it can be quite frugal, too, so it’s a great way to still make some fun family memories but on a budget!

We have put together a list of some highlights of campgrounds around the Northwest that are $20 or less. This is obviously not a comprehensive list as there are way too many to list, but just some highlights of various areas around the Northwest. We’ve also listed below some different resources & options of more places you can look to find campsites $20 or less.

Make sure to also check out our FREE camping sites in Washington & Oregon, which is filled with some great resources on ways to camp for free or at a significant discount, as well as a number of camping sites where you can camp for free all around the Northwest!

We’d love to hear what your favorite campgrounds are around the Northwest & why it’s your favorite place to visit! 

*Update for August 2015 – make sure to follow the reports of wildfires for the area you’re camping in as there are a number of campgrounds that may be closed due to wildfires.

National Park Campgrounds:

The majority of National Park campgrounds are $20 & under – they typically range from $15 – $20 – although we found ones even cheaper and we’ve listed the highlights in our big list below of specific campgrounds. Most National Park & National Forest campgrounds are non-reservable,  which means it is first-come, first serve. This can be a good thing if you decide to be spontaneous and go camping that weekend – just make sure you get there early (by late morning on busy weekends) to get a spot.

Here are links to popular National Park /Forest campgrounds around the Northwest:

  • Olympic National Park Campgrounds – there is only one reservable campground in this area, Kalaloch Campground right on the WA coast (gorgeous campground & views by the way from this area). The rest of the campgrounds are non-reservable
  • Mt Rainier National Park Campgrounds – There are 3 campgrounds available for tent camping – Cougar Rock, Ohanapecosh (these are both reservable online) & White River campground
  • North Cascades National Park Campgrounds – There are car campgrounds (accessible by car), camps accessable by boat, & wildness campgrounds all in this area.
  • Lake Roosevelt Campgrounds – This is up in the area near the Canadian border of WA & British Columbia in eastern WA & there are 27 campgrounds up in this area, either accessible by car or by boat
  • Crater Lake National Park Campgrounds – there are 2 car-accessible campgrounds in Crater Lake, plus you can also do back-country camping

National Park Free Admission for 4th Graders

National Park Free Admission for 4th Graders in 2015 – 2016 School Year

Just a reminder that all 4th graders will get FREE admission to National Parks for the 2015 – 2016 school year. Starting Monday, September 1st, every fourth grader in the country will get an Every Kid in a Park pass that will be good for FREE admission to all of America’s National Parks & federal lands & waters. This will be good for the 4th graders & their families (since it’s typically a family/car admission to get in). The pass will be good for a full year till August 31, 2016.

This pass applies to student’s who are in 4th grade for the 2015-2016 school year. This is part of President Obama’s Every Kid in the Park initiative. We visited a few local National Parks this summer, so I’ll be sharing some of our hikes with you in the next month, to give you some inspiration on where to take your family if you’re headed to a national park in the Northwest.

How many of you have 4th graders who will benefit from this initiative?

Northern Idaho – Lots for a family to do on a budget (Silverwood, Lakes, Camping & More)!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

Northern Idaho Final

If you are looking for a fun, and very budget friendly family getaway in the Northwest, consider Northern Idaho. Its a trip you can make from the Puget Sound area in around 5 hours, and a tank of gas (one tank there, one tank back). There are many free things to do in the area and the natural beauty you will find in Northern Idaho is stunning this time of the year.

There are a number of camping options in the area, and if you camp in an Idaho State Park it will only run you around $20 + tax per night (tent camping).  Our preference is to break up a few nights of camping with a hotel stay or two. That way we keep our costs down, and can enjoy different things about visiting Northern Idaho.

My family has been visiting Northern Idaho on and off for the past few years and here are some of our favorite things to do.

Silverwood Main

Silverwood Theme Park (and Boulder Bay Water Park) – Athol ID.

Silverwood is a Western Themed Theme Park and Water Park, that is about a 40 minute drive from Spokane, and around 15 -20 minutes from the Coeur d’Alene area.  Silverwood is very clean, and offers theme park rides as well a water park to cool off in, too. You will find characters like Garfield and his gang, huge ice cream cones, magic shows, roller coasters, and even old Disneyland rides (like Dumbo) to enjoy. It’s much easier on your pocket book, versus budget buster vacations like Disneyland, if you love Theme Parks.

We have lots of tips on how to save money when planning a trip to visit Silverwood, too. Check out these posts for more details:

Coeur d’Alene Lake, ID.

Not too far from Spokane or Silverwood is the popular lake destination, Coeur d’Alene. In addition to the lake and water fun, you will find resorts, restaurants built out on the water, and many of the stores you are probably used to from home.  It will take you approximately a tank of gas to get to Coeur d’Alene from the Seattle area.

Some things to do when visiting Coeur d’Alene: 

Lake Coeur dalene

Coeur d’Alene City Park

Enjoy the Lake! There is a nice swimming beach at the Coeur d’Alene City Park. In addition, you will also find basketball courts. walking/running paths, museum and more. You can also book a day cruise out on the lake, or other watersports (like paddle boarding) from this area.

Silverwood Theme Park – Budget Friendly Getaway in Idaho

Silverwood Main

Silverwood Theme Park Vacation

Do you love theme park vacations? If so, you will want to consider Silverwood Theme Park if you have not already visited. Its a wonderful getaway that will cost you MUCH less then Disneyland, but offers great family fun, shorter lines, and there are a number of other things you can do in Northern Idaho beyond just the theme park. My family first discovered Silverwood when our kids were much younger, and we have been visiting every couple of years ever since.

Silverwood Theme Park makes a great family get-a-way option for a couple of reasons:

  • Its close enough to drive to from Seattle and Portland areas (not a short drive, but can be done in around 5 and half hours).
  • There is fun for all ages. Its a great vacation option if you have kids of multiple age ranges, as there is something for everyone to do.
  • Affordable for a vacation if you plan carefully. Especially for a Theme Park vacation!
  • There is water park fun, as well as theme park fun.
  • Northern Idaho is a beautiful backdrop, and there are many more outdoor activities to plan into your vacation.
  • Its an easy short vacation (we usually take 4 days out of the week to head over).

Be sure to check out our these posts when planning your vacation too:

SIlverwood Park

You could plan a vacation to Silverwood Park for a budget as low as $500 (for a family of 5) if you plan carefully. We cannot even get our tickets to Disneyland for this price, so its a wonderful alternative.
Sample budget breakdown based on our trip is:
  • Gas $120 RT (took us one tank there and one back, and a little extra to drive around while in Idaho)
  • Campground (4 days/3 nights) – as low as $69 if staying in State Park (with tax) or $90 + tax if staying at Silverwood
  • 1 day of park tickets – $123.96 (price you can get if you stay at Silverwood camp ground – see below for more discount ticket ideas)
  • Food/Entertainment – $150 (we went shopping at the Walmart in town for food to cook at the campsite, and purchased some treats and drinks in the park).

Silverwood fun

Silverwood always makes for a fun family vacation!

Getting There:

It took us one tank of gas to get there, and one tank of gas to get home. With gas prices like they are, we spent just over $100 on fuel. Not a bad price for transportation for a theme park vacation for a family of five! The drive is about 5 and half hour drive.

We left at 8am and were checked into our campsite getting ready to set up by 2pm. Some trips we start by heading to Spokane for the first night and enjoy the Riverfront park first, and then heading to Silverwood the next day

Eating:

Feeding your family on a Silverwood vacation includes eating in the park, and out of the park. The most frugal option is to use your regular grocery budget and eat your own food! This is what we did for our out of the park time (we cooked over the fire at our camp spot with groceries we packed from home and some we picked up at the local Walmart).

20150704_200902

Park like grass area you can eat your own food on (at picnic tables or on the grass). Its a short walk out from the park, in front of the parking lot area.

Bring Your Own Food – 

We chose to visit the park for 2 days, but if you are on a tight budget you could do one day and spend another free day at Lake Coeur d’Alene. The first day we ate in the park. The second day we packed a lunch in the cooler (you will have to leave the park to eat your own food, they do not allow food and drink in), and then returned to the park for an ice cream snack (we ate at the Ice Creamery two days in a row!). I like to eat out, so was not looking forward to heading out of the park for lunch, but ended up really enjoying the break. We enjoyed a peaceful lunch, and some time to just sit and relax, and were refreshed when we headed back to the park. There are picnic tables that border the Silverwood Campground that you could use to bring a picnic from your car out to, if you want a table setting.

Ice Cream at Silverwood

Snack Tips – 

The ice cream cones  at the Creamery were huge! My kids started eating them so quickly I did not get a picture of the full size, but they were HUGE. The adult cones or bowls (shown in picture above) were $4.79, and you could get more then one flavor. These are easily big enough for two people to share. The kids cones were $2.99 ea (shown in top picture) and were still a very generous size.  I let the kids get their own large ones this year, but you could let two kids each pick a flavor and get two spoons, and they would both have a sizable snack for under $5 if they share one!

Free refills at Silverwood

I highly recommend buying the refillable sodas (comes to around $8.49 for the jug or $1 less if you buy with a meal). You can refill it for free all day long on the day you purchase it, and for $.99 per refill on the second day. We were there during exceptionally hot weather so it was well worth it to purchase one on the first day of our trip just to stay hydrated easily.

Silverwood Main Street

You can find the Theater I mention below, or the saloon (with entertainment) and other spots to eat on Main Street pictured above.

If you want an affordable snack, and way to get away from the crowds in a cool spot mid day, head to the movie theater on main street. We had our refillable soda, and ordered a popcorn for a couple of bucks. We then went into the movie theater to watch the old black and white movies and share the soda and popcorn. We were the only ones in the air conditioned theater, so it was a nice break from the heat and crowds.

Pizza Board

Meals In The Park –

Another park favorite for us is to visit the Pizzeria for the Illusions show and order the Family Special ($24.99 for a large pizza, breadsticks, and 4 sodas this year). We think its a great deal because you can eat while watching the show (or you can go watch the show for completely free without ordering food too). It gets crowded so you will want to get their early.

Silverwood coffee house

If your looking for a quiet spot to get away and take a break, stop in at the Coffee shop at the front of the park. Its right inside the tickets gates, and since most people are deeper in the park it seems to never have large crowds and there is plenty of seating and air conditioning to take a break.

Tips for Eating Outside The Park – 

We subscribed to Groupon and Living Social for Spokane/Coeur D’Alene ahead of time to watch for deals on restaurants over there.  There are many restaurants to choose from (like Olive Garden and other chain restaurants) between Couer D’Alene and the Silverwood area, so you could bring a coupon for one of those and do something along those lines (or check the local zip code on Restaurant.com before you leave to see if they have any restaurants you want to eat at).

There is also a Costco in Coeur d’Alene you could stop at their food bar, or a Burger King on the way up that has $1.49 kids meals too. There is also a Walmart, Fred Meyer and other shopping options in the area if you prefer to wait to get your groceries over there.

Activities:

Silverwood

The highlight of our vacation was visiting Silverwood Theme Park! My family always has a great time here. Silverwood has both a theme park and a water park, all accessible to you, once you pay the one admission price.

Theme Park –

We always start our trip out on the Theme Park side (just a personal preference). The teens seem to like to spend more time at the waterpark, and my younger kids like the theme park better. There is a great section for young kids with lots of rides for them to choose from, and a tree house to play in if mom or dad needs a break.

Elephant ride

This is their Elephant ride, similar to the one you will find at Disneyland. They actually bought this one from Disneyland years ago! I love this, as my girls have always loved this ride and the line at Disneyland is CRAZY…but at Silverwood we can generally walk right up to the ride with little to no line!

Silverwood Swing Ride

Silverwood Rides

For the big kids there are many great roller coasters, a river rafting ride (yes you will get soaked), log ride, carnival area and more. Its all set in an old west theme, which is fun.

We love to take a break by getting on the train from main street. It runs on the hour, but you will want to board early to get seats. Its about a 30 minute excursion, including some entertainment, so its a nice opportunity to sit down for awhile with the family.

Water Park –

The water park is again set up great for both big and little kids. For the big kids there are many large slides, a lazy river, two wave pools and the raptor (green slide that you go down in a raft with a group of people). For the little kids there is a toddler spray park (above) and then a larger toddler area with slides, water guns and much more (below).

One tip we have is to head back to the toddler spray park (all the way at the back of the park by the raptor). Its usually easier to find seats back there, and there is even a covered area with picnic tables if you get there early enough). We found it to be a bit less crazy then the rest of the park, and a good spot to gather everyone together before we all went our own way.

There are plenty of big kid slides and activities. My teen spends most of his time in the waterpark.

Wavepool at Silverwood

The whole family love the TWO wave pools, and the teens loved the bigger slides

In addition to the waterslides and kids areas, there is a lazy river, and two wave pools, as well as swim up bars to get something to drink in the lazy river area. There are tubes available to rent, lockers to store your stuff ($5 for regular size, or $7 for family locker), bathrooms to change in and places to eat and drink. It does close a few hours earlier then the theme park side, and the theme park are can get crowded after that time, so plan accordingly.

You can find more details on the attractions available, and hours for when you will be visiting at the Silverwood website.

Silverwood Grounds

One of the things I love about Silverwood is how clean the grounds are, and its so well themed with beautiful gardens, lots of spots to rest (they even had water mists you could walk under on the hot days we were there). All of these things make it not only a fun theme park getaway, but I do not leave Silverwood as exhausted as I do other parks I have visited. It really is kept up well, and beautiful!

In general, my entire family loves to vacation at Silverwood, from mom and dad down to our youngest, teen, and everyone in between. Its not too hectic, but plenty to do at the same time. We find it a great, and more importantly affordable, option to visiting the larger Theme Parks located in other states.

Silverwood Campground and Other Places to Stay When Visiting Silverwood Theme Park!

There are many budget friendly options  for a family getaway to Silverwood! These include tent camping, RV parks, hotels and motels, and more! We generally choose to camp every year, to keep our visit as budget friendly as possible. It can be tough to decide where to stay when visiting Silverwood if you have not been to the area before. We have done a handful of trips to Silverwood, and wanted to share some insights on spots to stay.

We have stayed at a handful of places over the years, and I will share some experiences below, but a couple of resources to check out if you’re trying to decide where to stay include:

Visit Idaho Site (this is a great planning resource, as you can select Northern Idaho as your region and then look for places to stay based on the type of accommodations you are interested in (hotel, RV, etc). You can also see what activities are in your area, if you want to do more in Northern Idaho in addition to visiting Silverwood.

Some Ideas on Places to Stay When Visiting Silverwood

Camping:

Camping is our favorite way to visit Silverwood. Well, actually we like to camp most of the time and break it up with a night or two at a hotel/motel in the Northern Idaho or Spokane area. The reason we prefer camping for this area is that: a) it makes the vacation very budget friendly (can camp for as low as $20 + tax per night in the area) and b) the weather is so nice in the summer, and the area beautiful. Here are a couple of our preferred spots when visiting Silverwood.

We have stayed at the Silverwood Campground & RV Park twice now. It’s the most convenient spot in terms of location. You can simply walk right into the park from your campground…no driving or parking fees!

(Check out our review of Silverwood here, if you have never been and are wondering how many days to visit for).

Places to Find Silverwood Discount Tickets:

To save even more start by checking out the Silverwood Deals Page, and select the month you plan to travel. There are many opportunities to save that way if you can be flexible with your dates. I also recommend signing up for the Silverwood newsletter. Each month they will send you coupons and sometimes there are even promo codes available. You can also follow them on Facebook as they run a handful of ticket giveaways throughout the season you can enter to win free Silverwood tickets!

Stay at the Silverwood Campground – They offer discounted rates to those who are staying at the Silverwood RV and Campground. Current rates for campers are $40.99 (ages 8-64) and Youth/Senior admission $20.99 (ages 3-7 and 65+). You can buy these tickets from the general store at the campground.

Get Silverwood Tickets at Costco – I found the ticket prices shown in the top picture for $38.99 at my local Seattle area Costco this year (2015). I have also heard they can often be purchased at the Costco in Coeur d’Alene (you might want to call ahead to see if they are available if you want those tickets).

Consider Planning your Trip with friends and family. If you can get a few families to go, you could qualify for a group discount (minimum of 15 people). When you have kids in the mix it often only takes 3 – 4 families to hit that minimum number. Not only will you get discount tickets for buying as a group, but they offer an all-you-can eat buffet for as low as $9.99 pp (great deal in the park).

AAA Discount for Members – Are you a AAA member? If so they currently offer the tickets at $39.99 for adults and $18.99 for kids!

Police, Fire or Military Members can get discounted pricing at the gate (ID required). They are $41.99 per adult ticket, and $20.99 for youth/senior tickets.

Search for promo codes to use online – We did this one year, and saved $10 per ticket. RetailMeNot currently has a $5 off promo code available. The best way to do this is just to google for promo codes that are available when you visit, and then purchase your tickets online at Silverwood with those promo codes.

Visit after 5pm for discounted rates and pay $23.99 per ticket (all ages).  This discount works well if you plan on driving in one day and setting up camp, and then can take advantage of some evening fun in the park. We did this for one day this year, and picked up one the kids tickets for $20.99, then used this discount for the adults.  If its a Friday or Saturday night in the summer, the park stays open until 10pm, so its a good way to get some fun it at a big discount. Note that Boulder Beach closes earlier (generally at 7pm in the summer) so you will want to head their first if you want to fit water fun in with this option.

Plan your trip around Special Discount Days – Silverwood offers a variety of promotions throughout the season. Sometimes you can get buy one ticket get one free, or other discounts. Upcoming deal days for the 2015 season include:
