Get Outside in Spokane, WA at These Nearby Attractions

The great outdoors and some of the country's best national parks are right at your doorstep when you stay at the Alderwood RV Express. Whether you love to fish, ski, or prefer to enjoy Mother Nature with a pint of craft brew in hand, Spokane has something for everyone. Check out five of our favorite nearby attractions.

1. Lake Roosevelt Park

Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area is known as the Jewel of Northeast Washington for a reason. Located just an hour and a half away from our RV park, this 130-mile long lake and surrounding wilderness boast world-class recreational activities for avid adventurists and laid back nature enthusiasts alike. You can spend your days enjoying fishing, boating, camping, canoeing, or simply exploring the area on foot. Don't miss a visit to historic Fort Spokane or St. Paul's Mission! If you want to dig even deeper to the park's natural surroundings, sign up for an educational program and let the lake be your classroom. Be aware that the lake water level can fluctuate up to four feet per day during spring and one foot per day during summer, so don't set up your campsite too close to the shoreline if you plan on camping.

2. Mount Spokane State Park

Another one of the region's must-see parks includes Mount Spokane State Park. This natural gem offers 13,000 acres of splendor year round. Visit in the summer to search for sweet huckleberries; it's a favorite local tradition. You can also go camping, hiking, horseback riding, or simply take in the area's scenic views. Come back in the winter for skiing and snowboarding.

3. Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge

Situated on the beautiful Columbia River Basin just 25 miles south of Spokane, the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge is any birder's paradise. The area includes 16,000 acres of protected wetlands that are home to myriad species of birds and animals. You don't have to be an extreme sports dynamo to appreciate the natural setting of Turnbull. The refuge includes hiking trails appropriate for all fitness levels.

4. Liberty Lake Regional Park

Did you know that you could visit Northeastern Washington and still fit in some beach time? You can at Livery Lake Regional Park. This sprawling park nestled on the shores of Liberty Lake boasts exceptional camping, hiking trails, and a sandy beach. Once you've had enough of the beach, you can walk right in and take a dip in Liberty Lake. It's the perfect retreat on a hot, summer day.

5. Have a Pint of Spokane Craft Brew

At the end of a long day exploring the beautiful outdoors near Spokane, be sure to take part in another favorite local pastime. The Pacific Northwest is well known for its craft beer scene, and you can find a new microbrewery just about anywhere you visit. Each has its own distinct recipes and culture, so you don't have to feel bad about trying a flight at each location. Spokane is home to seven local breweries with two others located in nearby Pullman, WA and Hayden, ID. The options range from craft ciders to imperial stouts. You don't have to be a beer aficionado to appreciate an ice-cold glass of local brew at the end of a long day outside.

These are just five of our favorite attractions near Spokane, WA, but the opportunities to explore the outdoors are endless.
