A couple of weeks ago, I started my new blog feature, Tales of a Book Bag. Tales of a Book Bag is a quick look at places my book bag has been.
Last weekend, my book bag took another fun camping/boating trip. This time it was to Rimrock Lake. Rimrock Lake is in the Wenatchee National Forest, on U.S. Hwy 12 about 10 miles from White Pass. It’s a man-made lake that was formed when the Tieton Dam was built on the Tieton River to provide irrigation to the Yakima Valley.
Rimrock Lake is one of my favorite places to camp. It’s simply beautiful. We camp at The Rimrock Lake Resort. It’s quiet, clean, well kept and has free showers. There are both tent and RV sites and a dock you can rent slips in to tie up your boat. Our kids love the swim area. It’s perfect for bringing your floaties and lounging in the water.
If you’re into camping, boating or fishing in Washington, I would highly suggest planning a trip to Rimrock Lake. It’s about two and half hours from Seattle. The drive is beautiful and goes quickly.
