campgrounds around Chilliwack

Need advice on where we might stay for a couple nights after picking up our trailer next May. Reviews I've looked at don't sound too good. Wondering if folks stay on Wa. side or BC after their orientation?
Thanks so much,
Marj and Guy

Since the trailer is imported into the USA, for US buyers, you'd need to go BACK through the border into Canada if you wish to camp there.


A number of US buyers have stayed at the KOA in Lynden, WA.

We plan on picking up our new Escape and then attending the rally in Osoyoos that week in May. If anything is wrong, Reace can probably take care of it while at the rally as he routinely goes round and asks if you are a happy camper, great people and great product. Osoyoos is about 3 hours east from Chilliwack. We plan to stay at the Best Western, next to Escape before delivery.

I stayed at Silver Lake Park, Maple Falls, WA, about 14 miles from Sumas & a great base for exploring the Baker Ski Area & Artist's Point. They have 3 campgrounds - I stayed in the Red Mountain - water & Electric for $31.00 per night. Vault toilets, although at least one of the other campgrounds in the park has bathrooms with showers.

We stayed at the Lynden KOA when we picked up our 21 in Sept. Can not say enough about the owners and the park. They were very friendly and helpful.

We chose Bayview SP, on Puget Sound, just west of Burlington, WA, for our 1st couple of days, to try things out. We stopped in Bellingham, WA (Trader Joes especially) to stock up, on our way south. That puts you 60± miles from ETI in case anything is amiss (our 17 was A-ok). It also fit our plans to take the ferry to Port Townsend, and then camp around the Olympic Peninsula for a couple of weeks.

Thanks Don and Teresa,
Sounds like a nice way to do it. Will have to research the ferry and campgrounds on the Peninsula.
Thought we might be the only ones ordering a 17A~glad we have company. We've moved up from our pop-up camper and a Home Depot paint bucket for the middle of the night:-)

Marj and Guy,
You will find that there is a collection of A model Escape owners that are proud of their excellent choices with regard to Escape models and features exactly matching their camping lifestyle. We're known as the "A-listers", so - Welcome.


Here is an analysis of our choices and why that you may find of value: 17 Build-one year later


( Edit: Photos are of our 1st generation Escape; the 2nd Gen (2017± and newer) Escapes have straighter walls, and flatter, wider door and little tweaks to interior dimensions. General arrangement of appliances is still the same).
