Lost Lake RV Resort - Olympia Washington
August 24th - 31st, 2007 Lost Lake Resort is a first class RV park and our RPI (Resort Parks International) membership allows us to book in at $8.00 per night. They have it all here including a private lake stocked with trout and bass. We were so busy during our stay that we never did get a chance to fish. Our purpose in booking in here for the week was so our son Bill and his family had an easy 1.5 hour drive to come visit us. Bill, Heidi, and the kids (Mason & Maddie) came Fri. evening to camp with us for the week-end and then Grandma and Grandpa would keep the kids, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday while their mom and dad worked.
The week was filled with lots of fun for the little ones and the big kids too. Bill and I took part in a miniature golf tournament as the park was celebrating the opening of its new golf lay-out. Following the tournament we were all invited to a barbecue hosted by the park owner. The following morning we were all invited to a complimentary breakfast and it was excellent. The pool, spa, hot tub, exercise facility were first class and we managed to go there every day during our stay.
One of the days that the kids were with us we made a driving trip to Mt. Rainier. We left the coach around 10:00 a.m. and were back at 4:30 p.m. having driven to near the snow line. The scenery was spectacular. Pictures do not do it justice.
All of the area around here is really part of the West Coast Rain Forest and no matter which direction you drive it is heavily forested, and yet one is only a couple of hours from the coast. The temperatures have been in the low to mid 70's and in the last two weeks we have only seen drizzle for a few minutes one morning.
We will be leaving Lost Lake Resort on the morning of August 31st. Plans are to "boondock" at the Tullalip Casino north of Seattle for one night and then book in to the La Conner, Washington Thousand Trails Resort for a free 3 day stay. The catch is we must agree to sit through a 90 minute presentation on the resort and their membership buy in program. Anyone can sit through 90 minutes and say no thanks for 3 free days! Those three days will cover the Labor Day Week-end for which we don't have reservations at one of our membership resorts. We have memberships in Coast to Coast, Resort Parks International, Passport America, Escapee's, and Good Sam which covers us just about everywhere. We can pretty well plan our stays for $8.00 per night wherever we go.
Now on to La Conner, Washington RV Resort!
