Students voluntarily stuffing themselves into a phone booth along with a few of their closest friends was a popular fad in the 1950’s. I’m not sure what the record was, but it was obviously an uncomfortable amount as the accompanying photo can attest. For those readers younger than 25 that were born with a cell phone attached to your hip and have no idea what a phone booth is, you will find the answer here. Being the curious person I am, it started me wondering about how many vehicles you could stuff into a single developed campsite.
After a recent campout with friends at Middle Waddell Campground, near Olympia, Washington, I can honestly answer that question. The answer is 13, consisting of 1 Travel Trailer, 1 pickup truck, 1 class A motorhome, 1 class C motorhome, 2 utility trailers, 6 ATVs and 1 motorcycle! Unlike students stuffed in a phone booth, we found it rather comfortable once the vehicles were situated. And the cost for housing all these RVs in one campsite? Campground fees were zero, nada, zilch. The only stipulation was a Washington State Discover Pass displayed in each of the primary tow vehicles and current off road tabs on the ATVs and motorcycle. Camping for free with no maximum limit on how many units per campsite is my kind of adventure in RVing!
