8 Campervan Weekend Road Trips Outside of Seattle

The Pacific Northwest (or PNW) is a beautiful region located on Puget Sound and surrounded by stunning mountains and lush greenery. It’s not every day you find a city like Seattle, where an escape into nature is just a stone’s throw away.

With the global Covid pandemic, you might not be able to hop into a plane to get out of North America, but a weekend camping trip is just a quick road trip away.

And instead of a typical hotel or Airbnb, why not rent a campervan for a different kind of escape? With your own RV, you can go anywhere your mind takes you! (Within the United States, of course.)

Whether you want to explore the hiking trails of a state park, get some salty breeze by the seaside, or learn about history and culture at a town’s visitor center – the Seattle area has something to offer.

Here are some of our favorite weekend getaways in the Pacific Northwest in order of distance from Seattle.

Bainbridge Island

First, let’s start closest to home. Bainbridge Island is just an easy ride on the Seattle-Bainbridge Island Ferry. Some might consider this a day trip, but it’s a very convenient weekend trip idea too! Take a campervan and enjoy a complete camping experience.

If you’re looking for picturesque walks, this is an ideal location. Explore Bloedel Reserve and find some moments of peace in their beautiful gardens. Even just walking on the island’s sandy shores will also offer uninterrupted views of Puget Sound and the Cascade mountains. You might even see the peaks of Mount Rainier National Park in the distance.
