We made Poulsbo Washington the second stop in our trip to the Western Washington area. We made this stop after we stayed at Gig Harbor. I remember Poulsbo from a visit years ago. It is a cute little historic town, and we like to wander and play “tourist” in these type of areas. We were here to visit my aunt & uncle (and cousins) who live in Bremerton and Silverdale, so it was a close commute. I was unable to locate any RV parks in those two towns.
Eagle Tree RV Park
I chose Eagle Tree RV park as a home base to visit our family. The park itself seemed to have a lot of live-in sites, but there were also people coming and going like us. It was a mix. The sites were pretty narrow. Our big slide hung over into the next site, but luckily they didn’t seem to mind. The site was gravel, and had no grass.
The staff in the office seemed nice. The park does have free cable TV and wifi, but the wifi wasn’t a very strong service. That is pretty typical for RV parks. The park was pretty quiet, other than the occasional diesel truck starting up. The best part – they did let us check in a little early. We were not far from our stop the night before, so we arrived a bit early on check-in day.
We were able to enjoy the fun little town of Poulsbo. Poulsbo’s historic Little Norway is one of the Kitsap Peninsula’s favorite and most popular destination for visitors of all ages and interests. Front Street, the historic area, has a variety of places to explore including galleries, museums, and shops. They are known as a growing Arts District. There are several waterfront restaurants to get a bite to eat overlooking the marina and waterfront park.
The Kitsap Peninsula is full of state parks, beaches, trails, museums, shops, wineries and craft breweries for days of fun. We could have spent more time in the area to explore some of these, but our focus on this visit was visiting with family. Nearby is the awesome Olympic Peninsula home of the Olympic National Park for great hikes.
Cedar Glen RV Park
When checking out the area, we found a nicer (but a little bit more expensive) RV park just across the street. Cedar Glen RV Park – I didn’t consider it when making the reservations as it is referred to as a mobile home park online, and I try to steer clear of those. But the RV and mobile home park were separate, so it would have been fine.
The sites were larger and there was grass in the sites. There are only 36 sites, but they are big rig friendly and it looked very clean. The website says they have wifi, laundry, and showers. I would choose that over the one we stayed in when we go back for another visit, just because of the grass and elbow room between the sites.
