Palouse Falls has a small camp area. The gravel road into park area is quite often very rough. There is a KOA at Lyons Ferry Marina that is a few miles away. Watch the roadas WA sr 127 has steep down grade south bound! It would be better for a day trip!

If you plan on being there the middle of August, the International Kite Festival in Long Beach, WA is a must see in our opinion. You can check out our blog entry from when we were there in 2016 if you like. It may be too late to get reservations but it doesn't hurt to try. We stayed at Andersens Oceanside RV Park & Campground when we visited and found it very nice.

Deception Pass state park would be good for a few days, you would be about 15 minutes from the San Juan Island ferry. A ferry trip or whale watching trip to see the resident Orcas.

Great way to enjoy the San Juan's by ferry, with reasonable cost. While camping in the San Juan's is enjoyable the ride to get there is expensive.

What about the Palouse Falls park, that's on my list for summer.
Very definitely worth a stop. Since there was no host, I ended up in the host site (full hookups) for a couple of days. The only problem with the site is I became a host - tough when you don't know much about the area! The designated sites are for small Class B or tents, but there is a large parking lot next to the host site that provides dry camping space. It has been awhile since I visited - 2014, so things may have changed.

As to summer - it may be hot. I was there in May and it was warm, some friends hit it in July & it was in the 100's. More photos.

You can take a day cruise of the San Juans without your vehicle. A lot more affordable as a passenger.

The only places I would add to the good suggestions you have already received is Cape Flattery in the north western corner of Wa it was beautiful saw seals swimming in and out of caves. You can also see Canada from there. Also enjoyed the CG's right on the beach in Olympic NP. I thought the over flow CG was better. Saw Orcas, Seals, Humpback whales and a Great while shark chasing a baby Humpback. Lots of driftwood along the shore. Hiking was nice, the water was very cold to swim in GS and I did not stay in long. I thought WA was one of the prettiest states we visited.

Jon -- great shot of the falls!! I think this is part of the "channeled scablands" created by the breaking of an ice dam during the glacial era?? Very dramatic landscape.

Much of central Washington was formed by the Montana Glacier. This includes Dry Falls (Must see) which was something like seven times the size of Niagra. It changed the course of the Columbia River.

We have spent many weeks touring Washington. So much to do! But speaking as folks who come from a warm climate (Calif.), I think the snowy mountains are the main attraction – snow in July, and lots of it! Not going to find that in Florida, right?

Here is the first of four connected blog posts that may be of interest:

North Cascades

This is just a sample to whet your appetite – that’s Mt. Baker in the middle of the shot:

Rainier is great, too – here is a blog post:

Rainier

(In that blog post, fast forward through the first section on the Calif redwoods.)

Rainier has lots of waterfalls, streams, wildflowers, glaciers, etc.

Note, also, that much of the hiking in the mountains of Washington is not at a particularly high altitude – roughly 5000 to 7000 feet. By contrast, hiking in the Sierras and Colorado is often at ten thousand feet or more, which is not as easy for us flatlanders! [emoticon]
