With 300ft of private waterfront river access across 4 acres, River's Edge provides easy access to the best fly fishing in Washington state. There are endless opportunities to relax, fish and enjoy a quiet stretch of the Yakima River. Complete with 4 RV hook-ups offering 30/50 AMP + water service and 4 tent only sites, you can enjoy this slice of unique Washington wonderland with your whole family. Rustic and remote, you will feel instant peace and relaxation as you arrive. Just over an hour east of Seattle sits our beautiful property. It's an easy and beautiful drive on I-90 all the way, then a short drive to the property. Being on the east side of the Cascades, this campground is almost always sunnier than the city, warmer in the summer, and snowier in the winter. But the riverfront is where the true magic is. Fly fishing and bird watching heaven! Many hours have been spent relaxing in, on, or near the river with friends, family, and dogs. It's always changing, always alive, and that's why we love it. If you need supplies, groceries or a restaurant, the town of Ellensburg is just 13 minutes away, and the fun town of Cle Elum/Suncadia resort with its restaurants and the Swiftwater Winery, is about 22 minutes away. Remote yet connected! Our property amenities include a shared, central fire pit & gazebo/table/chairs for all guests to use. There is a flush toilet available on site (however no shower or laundry access). Our site is intentionally rustic and we can't wait to share it with others who love being outdoors with nature. Suggested Packing list: River shoes, bug spray, sun hat, suncreen, camping chairs, binoculars, layers (it can go from chilly to blazing and back again), a good book, board games, s'more supplies, floaties/life jackets, leashes/poop bags.

Site #2 - Green Drake Glen -RV/Tent
Perfect River Getaway
The views and sound of the river was so perfect for a weekend of relaxation. It felt very secure and other campers were polite and kept to themselves even though sites are close to one another. I appreciated having power and water too.

Site #7 - Tent Camping
10/10 Recommend
My husband and I loved this property for car camping with our 2 dogs!! Adam was very communicative and welcoming!! The property was very beautiful, I was expecting it to be a little bit bigger based on the photos however that did not affect our trip at all! The fishing was the one thing my husband really enjoyed! He was able to catch an abundant amount of fish right off the bat!! The property also has a very nice breeze coming right off the water, so even though it was almost 90 degrees outside it was very comfortable!!

Site #4 - Mayfly Manor - RV/TENT
Quiet spot on the Yakima River. No fireworks, which was our goal. Close to town.

Site #6 - Tent Camping
After seeing site #6 (and knowing the resort was otherwise booked up) we decided to leave and take our chances finding something elsewhere. I'm sure it's a nice place to stay if you can get a spot right on the river, but this particular "campsite" was not what I would call pretty (between the driveway and a travel trailer with a satellite dish that seems like it lives there, leaving no river view), nor was it flat.
