You will not have any trouble finding a nearby campground. There are more than 20 in and around the city of Spokane, and most of them offer full hookups and recreational activities. Just decide whether you want to stay in a "city" or "country" campground, and then look for one in your favorite campground directory. All state parks are open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. from April 1 through October 15. Riverside State Park is located only three miles north of the city, but it has the atmosphere of a well-maintained, backwoods campground. The campsites in this 5,800-acre park are situated next to volcanic outcroppings and along its picturesque river. Hiking trails and horse rentals are available.

RVers are now able to enjoy the results of the many improvements to the beautiful city of Spokane. Unfortunately, many make the mistake of driving through Spokane with only a stop for fuel. Even if you have only a short time available, you should not miss Riverfront Park and its many attractions that lie just a few blocks off Highway 90. Spend a day in the park - it will be one that I am sure you will enjoy.

There is always something to do at Riverfront Park. On Neighbor Day, for example, people may buy and sample ethnic foods from around the world, all prepared and served in the middle of the park. Fresh produce and handicrafts are for sale at Riverfront Park's public market every Wednesday and Saturday from May through October, near the north side entrance to the park.

You will find a number of places to park a towed car or truck within a block or two of the park; however, I do not recommend that you drive a large motorhome or tow a long trailer to Riverfront Park. There is very little parking available for such vehicles. However, free parking for even the largest RV is available at the Spokane Coliseum on the corner of Boone and Howard streets, assuming there is no entertainment event in progress. The coliseum is only three blocks, a short walk, north of Riverfront Park.
