We are headed to Cliffside RV Park to meet up with our son Ian and his adorable wife Alicia for a family camping experience. They have just recently purchased a 23 foot Keystone Passport Travel Trailer, so this will be fun.
Nestled along the shoreline of NAS Whidbey, Cliffside offers 57RV sites as well as several tent sites, and six furnished yurts overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Vancouver Island, the San Juan Islands and the Olympic Peninsula. These sites offer water and electrical hookups; there are great restroom and shower facilities in each loop. More than that, these homes away from home provide the ambiance of shoreline living, an open window on an ever-changing marine environment and unparalleled sunsets. There are several miles of private military beach strewn with interesting driftwood and lots and lots of rocks.
Our camping site faced the Strait of Juan de Fuca, couldn’t have been more perfect, even the weather cooperated. We explored surrounding capes, abandoned bunkers, homemade ice cream and fresh fish caught that very day. Staying in camp was a relaxing treat, to sit in our chairs, drinking fresh made Kombucha and listening to the soft sound of the ocean. Then there is the trail system, miles of paved walking or biking trails with views of the ocean and driftwood art along the way.
