While many RV owners around the Pacific Northwest have already buttoned up and winterized their RVs for the season, other adventurous families and retirees alike are just getting ready to head south for the winter, ThurstonTalk.com reported. If you’re not quite ready to put your RV into hibernation but are unable to take a lengthier trip like your snowbird kin, you can still enjoy a winter “getaway” in your RV around Thurston County, Wash.

With year-round outdoor recreation opportunities across the state, many area RV parks and resorts stay open during the winter months, providing local RV owners ample opportunities to enjoy their natural surroundings from the comfort of their very own RVs. Make your next RV outing a true “staycation” by heading to Thurston County RV parks like American Heritage CampgroundWashington Land Yacht Harbor, and Offut Lake Resort, just to name a few, or, if you would prefer to get out of town without going far, there are countless RV park and resort options within a two-hour drive (or less!) of Olympia, all well worth the journey.

The site also focused in on five nearby resorts: The Waterfront at Potlatch in Skokomish, Wash., Rain Forest Village in Quinault, Wash., Silver Cove RV Resort in Silver Lake, Wash., Bayshore Beach RV Resort in Tokeland, Wash., and Rainbow’s End RV Park in Sequin, Wash.
