A visit to the Washington Land Yacht Harbor

A visit to the Washington Land Yacht Harbor

Our holiday was pretty busy this year! Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were spent with Kevin and Laura in Portland (we stayed at the Jantzen RV Park - see our review here) then on the way back home we stopped for a night at the Washington Land Yacht Harbor in Olympia, WA.

If you’re unfamiliar with the WLYH, it’s a little community with (mostly) mobile homes and everyone who lives there must have an Airstream in order to buy property. There’s a wide range of housing types from 40 year old mobile homes with gravel drives, to newer units with extra large RV car ports and paved driveways. We also saw some vacant lots for sale and other spaces with just garages and workshops. (It was raining and dark — these photos aren’t the best, but you get the idea.)

It also has about 100 spots available for Airstreamers that need a place to stop for the night (that’s us above — there were only 2 other campers there, so we got to spread out a bit). The spots are gravel, and tightly packed as you can see, and not really level, so come prepared. For $18, I’m not complaining. It seems this is a hot spot for rallies — and with the giant assembly hall, it’s perfect for those events. It’s possible they also store Airstreams in this giant field on the property — honestly we only saw two people the day we were there, so we didn’t get to ask a lot of  questions!
