Best Camping in the Northwest

My family and I spent tons of time camping all over the Northwest throughout my childhood and adolescence. I wanted to share with you guys my favorite spots for camping in the northwest.

Mt. Rainier

I have a serious love for Mt. Rainier. Whether it’s flying over it on a flight out of Seattle, or camping at the bottom of it, Mt. Rainier is gorgeous. It can also be seen from Seattle on a sunny day! Mt. Rainier is gorgeous, and hosts tons of different campgrounds. It also has hiking trails and for the talented, you can hike to the top.

Crater Lake National Park

Camping in the Northwest - Crater Lake


This is a landmark in Oregon that will just absolutely take your breath away in person. It’s stunning that the surrounding area just juts up around it. Again, since crater lake is a national park, there is camping all over the place.

Cape Disappointment

Cape Disappointment is located at the southwestern corner of Washington state. As you look across the Columbia river, you’re actually looking at Oregon! Cape Disappointment has a stunning lighthouse that it’s most famous for, as well as several campgrounds.

Salt Creek Recreation Area


Salt Creek Recreation Area is located in northern Washington. Across the strait of Juan de Fuca is Canada! Salt Creek used to be a World War II Military camp, so there’s tons of awesome history in this campground. It’s also extremely beautiful.

Wallowa Lake State Park


Located about an hour from La Grande, Oregon, Wallowa is absolutely stunning. Since the mountains look like the Swiss mountains, they have designed the little camping area to look like you’re in Switzerland. There’s also an awesome gondola (I LOVE Gondola’s….of course I forced my dad to take me on it) that goes up the side of the mountain and will give you awesome views.

Best Disneyworld Hotels

Disneyworld is probably one of my favorite places on this entire earth. I absolutely love disneyworld, and so today I wanted to share my top picks for hotels at Disney. So let’s see the best disneyworld hotels, by price point. I also want to begin by saying that there are TONS of advantages of staying on property, and I’ll cover that in another post.

Value Resorts

Art of Animation

Art of Animation is the newest value resort, and also the most expensive. It runs just over $100 a night, but is so worth it. These rooms are perfect if you’re traveling with a family, because they have family suites for around $200 a night. When you select a family suite, you get to choose your theme. They have cars, finding nemo and the lion king. Each room is so gorgeous and so fun looking! The regular rooms are little mermaid themed.

Moderate Resorts

Port Orleans Resort

Port Orleans is an absolutely gorgeous hotel. It sits on a lake, providing either bus or boat transportation to the parks (depending on what park). There are various rooms to choose from, from one king bed up to two queens and a king. You can also select water views or regular views. There is also five restaurants ranging from sit down to quick service in the hotel, so spending days at the hotel will have everything you need.

Deluxe Resorts

Contemporary Resort

This was so difficult to choose. The deluxe resorts at Disney are absolutely beautiful, stunning and perfect to stay in. I chose the contemporary resort mostly because the monorail goes RIGHT through the hotel which is seriously amazing. I love it. It also has absolutely stunning views of the Magic Kingdom, with views of those awesome fireworks every night.
