Bumping Lake Marina and Resort – Naches, WA
If you want to “get away from it all,” Bumping Lake Marina & Resort is perfect. If you like “roughing it” in your RV, but with some backup amenities available, this place is perfect. However, it doesn’t have tons of creature comforts. Although the address is Naches, Washington, it’s actually about 30 miles past Naches. The resort is so remote that cell phones don’t work. I did notice some satellite dishes, so it may be possible that satellite works here, not sure (but forget about an internet connection!).
This campground is a good place to learn to “dry camp” if you are not sure of yourself. I developed my “dry camping” skills and knowledge here. Although there are electrical hookups, they are minimal.
The spaces are dirt, and are haphazardly located along a hillside, in the trees, by a lake. The owner has divided the campground between “partying” and “peace & quiet.” You will be asked to specify when you register. I stayed in the “peace & quiet” section and found it relaxing. I wandered over to the “partying” section, and was glad I chose the quiet side.
I stumbled onto this park accidentally while trying to find a different park in August 2009. This resort is open from May thru September. I plan to do an annual sojourn here, just for the “get away from it all” aspect.
