In the last installment we looked at the historic Cushman Power Plant across the street from the Skokomish Tribe’s The Waterfront at Potlatch RV Resort. After checking out the resort, we headed 10 miles up the road to Skokomish Park At Lake Cushman, another campground owned and operated by the Skokomish. Lake Cushman offers a rustic camping experience the whole family will enjoy. After fishing, exploring the miles of trails, day use and other park facilities, we took advantage of our national park pass and drove along the lake to the Staircase entrance of the Olympic National Park. Deciding to take a short hike we settled on the 2 mile Rapid Bridge Loop.
For a big kid like me, the highlight of the hike was the new suspension bridge spanning the river. The bridge features a span of 215 ft and, like most foot suspension bridges, offers its fair share of bouncing and swaying much to the dismay of my hiking partner! I was thinking ‘what a travel bargain’, compared to the cost of over $30 per adult to bounce across the 230 ft. span of the Capilano Bridge operated by our neighbors to the north in British Columbia. Unexpected value added experiences, one of the best adventures in RVing. http://www.skokomishpark.com.
