Coyote Run RV Park, Connell, WA

Along US 97
Sunday, May 18, 2014, Coyote Run RV Park, Connell, WA, 157.7 miles, 8876.7 For the Trip

I headed out of Maryhill State Park around 10:00. I forgot to turn in my "comments" card, and wish I had. At $40.83 per night, it is the most expensive state park I've stayed in anywhere in the US, and on top of that, they charge $.50 for 3 minutes of shower! I know, I whined about the shower cost a couple of posts ago... I guess I'll save the card & drop it off at the next Washington state park.

I stopped just outside the park on US 97 to photograph some windmills on the hills. Someone told me that this is the area where the photo that was used for the opening screen of Windows XP. Don't know it that's true, but the hills do resemble the image.  Another photo at today's LakeshoreImages page.

The only other photo is the site picture - site 67 at Coyote Run RV Park. At $25.53 for full hookups & cable TV, it is not to bad a deal. Lots of permanent residents, but well kept up. Very windy - I don't thing I'll be grilling tonight, not that that would be all that easy - no picnic tables at my site, although some sites have them. Individual bathrooms needing a key with a $5.00 deposit, with a large shower. One problem - most of the hooks for your clothes are broken, so there isn't much in the way of places to put things. In the one I was in there was no hot water at the sink, but since there was no mirror, you didn't need it for shaving, which I did in the shower. Still, very clean, with a shower curtain to keep the room dry.

Dinner will be soup or a sandwich.

Until tomorrow -


  1. As a Washingtonian, I was always proud of Washington State Parks. As an Arizonan for the last 25 years, I've learned to avoid Washington State Parks. Second only to California in cost and they gouge out of state residents extra for reservations. County, city, and federal get my $.

  2. I'm with John..Washington State parks used to be so nice.Then some idiot from
    Ca showed up and she or he was hired. Too bad you and others from the rest of the states were not able to visit b/4 everything got so screwed up.
    I was born in Seattle and we used to have the best state parks..They are headed to the way Ca. parks are going..No one can afford to visit.
