Regardless of cost, we have stayed at Confluence State Park in Wenatachee and it is a nice park. As an aside.....if you are a disabled veteran (regardless of State of Residence) Washington will give you a disabled veteran's permit and your stay at any Washington State Park is free. Oregon also has the same program.

Per their website the $10. extra vehicle charge is applied to two vehicles parked at a campsite (unless it is towed by an RV). Extra vehicles can be parked at a campsite if approved in advance by a ranger.

Its not the cost that bothered me at several campgrounds but the racket made by grounds crews. At Rasar SP some guy was riding a big machine all over the place sucking up leaves. Once in the morning and then later in the day. It was pretty ridiculous and havent seen that type of thing really elsewhere except at Pinnacles where a guy was using a gas blower needlessly as well. Makes me think this is "make work" activity which can drive up expenses. The ranger at Rasar did agree with me that the noise in the park detracted from the visitor experience and was going to have a sensitivity seminar for that operator

I recently purchased a copy of Pacific Northwest Camping Destinations by Mike and Terri Church from Amazon and have been looking it over this weekend. It covers Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia and has a lot of useful information about campgrounds. I think it would be a good reference for those planning a trip to Chilliwack.

We just booked at the Washington Park campground in Anacortes for the Victoria Day weekend. It is quite rustic and hidden away, yet nice. Price is right, too! US$25/night. Some sites are reservable, others on a first come, first served basis.
PS: The farmers' market in Anacortes on Saturday is pretty good, too!
