Thursday, June 21 – We headed to Bremerton, WA, today. Bremerton is a Naval town across Puget Sound from Seattle.


We are staying at the Bremerton Elks Lodge. We were told its worth the stop here just to see the view of the Olympic Mountains out the Lodge dining room windows. Boy, what a spectacular view! Priceless!

It has a park like setting.park setting

The side yard is huge. The mountains are right across the river.

The Elks Lodge campground has 30 amp electric and water hook-ups. There is no dump station, but one is available at the fairgrounds about five miles down the road. The sites and streets are gravel. There are shade trees so satellite connectivity could be an issue in a few of the sites. They have restrooms and a beautiful lodge. There seems to be numerous activities going on at the lodge.

Site 10. Yes that is Bella getting into the photo.

No one can fit in the site at the end so we have double the room.side of site

On our way here, we drove a ways up WA-101 – the Hood Canal. What a beautiful drive! The Olympic Mountains, the Hood River, quaint little towns, and beautiful forests.

We even saw our FIRST Eagle. It was really high up so we zoomed in as much as possible…cool.


The road is very windy and narrow, so it's slow going. Speeds in the motor home were between 20 – 35 mph. There are very few places to pull over to let motorists pass, so we had cars backing-up behind us. This would be a fabulous drive in the car!

After we settled into our campsite, we drove to check out the ferry terminals for future sightseeing adventures and then into Bremerton to see the Navy Shipyards.

It's amazing to see aircraft carries right along the highway. The destroyer “Joy” was also in the harbor with tours available. Other Navy ships are anchored off shore throughout the harbor.



Thanks for stopping by. Hope y'all come back real soon. Have a great day!
