Recommendations for a shakedown

I'm sorry for all the questions folks! I was on the list for next July but had the good fortune of acting fast on one that didn't workout for someone. So anyway I'm heading to Chilliwack on Sunday so I'm in full scramble mode! Looking for some recommdations on parks to give my 21 a shakedown for a night or two. I'm looking for full hookups so I can test all the systems. Not sure what side of the border I should stay on but a reasonable distance to ETI makes sense in case something needs tweaking.

Thanks again for all your input!

We stayed at the KOA in Lynden Washington on our shakedown cruise. Probably the nicest KOA I've ever seen. Had a electric/water hookup on the lake for a reasonable $35 night.
I would have stayed longer than one night, but had reservations at Fort Townsend and the Olympic National Park. Highly recommend Lynden as it is only 20 miles from the border.

Ditto KOA in Lynden. Still close to ETI, full hookups, and lots of good day trips from there.

I love it when a plan comes together. Of course I need to see if they have available spots.

Another option is Silver Lake Park, it's a Whatcom County campground roughly between Sumas and Maple Falls, WA. You can reserve in advance and some (but not all) have electric and water hookups.

If you want to stay in Chilliwack, Cottonwood Meadows RV Park is right across the highway from ETI. There are also some excellent scenic dry-camping parks in the area.

...and Chilliwack is a neat, hard working, and scenic town. A good selection of restaurants and coffee shops, plus a river walk that goes on for miles and can be walked or biked. Only drawback is going back across the border with or without license plates.

Most people do not have plates until they get back home and register their trailer with the applicable authorities. Here in Pennsylvania they have to physically see the vin# before registering.
