We left Seattle and set out to explore the Olympic Peninsula. Our first stop was Sequim, Washington – a town full of lavender farms and bay view parks. John Wayne’s Waterfront Resort was the perfect location to set up camp and begin exploring!
Here’s the Breakdown:
Location: Sequim, Washington
GPS: 48.0619, -123.0428
Date/Temp: We camped at John Wayne’s Resort for four night in mid September. The weather was beautiful with highs in the mid seventies and lows in the low 50s. It was sunny during all four days!
Amenities: Our site was level and had a waterfront view with full hookups. The campground office has a charming store with local goodies. There’s also a modern bathhouse and laundry facility on property. Our favorite amenity was the easy access to the John Wayne Maria across the street.
Wifi/Cell: The park offers free, password protected wifi. We were able to effectively use it during 75% of our stay. During peak hours when the network became bogged down, we’d switch over to our T-Mobile hotspot with blazing 4G LTE. Our AT&T service was equally fast.
Noise: While the sites are pretty close together, which seems normal at parks with such beautiful views, noise was never a concern. All the guests we met were kind & respectful. The nearby road doesn’t get much traffic.
Grocery/Errands: Downtown Sequim is only a few miles away. There are many shops with local flavor and a number of big box stores. We did a lot of shopping in the area because all the options. We purchased new tires (much needed) at Discount Tire, we got River some treats at Petco, scored some deals at Grocery Outlet, hit up a few thrift stores, and made an obligatory Walmart trip.
Dog Friendly: John Wayne’s Waterfront Resort is dog friendly and offers free doggy-waste bags. The marina across the street is also dog friendly. River loved rolling around in the grass and taking a dip in Sequim Bay.
Entertainment: There’s lots of exploring to do in the area. We took day trips into Port Townsend & the Olympic National Park. Right outside the RV Resort is a wonderful state hiking trail, as well. Touring the local lavender farms is another must-see!
