It took 90 minutes to get there but the view was well worth it! Where the pavement ends is where the Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park begins.
The high mountain - with a bit of snow - at the far end of the lake is part of the Washington State North Cascades mountain range. Chilliwack Lake ends close to the US border.

We rode out for a couple of reasons but we also wanted to scout out the truly beautiful RV camping spots here. One area - called 'The Radium Loop' - is ideal for large rigs. It would fit our 5th wheel with ease. The sites are well separated with natural trees and ground cover.

There are no services. The rate is $18/night and seniors (65 years and older) get the sites for $9. What a deal! Each camping loop has a fresh water spigot and there is a dump station on the way out from the park. Fires are allowed in the pits at each site.

We took one more ride through the 'Radium Loop' of the campsite before riding out and heading back for home. Almost every spot in the loop would work for our rig.
On the ride back, Jeanette spotted a newly renovated building in the tiny town of Yarrow that also included a restaurant with lovely outdoor covered area. We took a break there and enjoyed a tea for her and a coffee for me. Nice!
We rolled back home by 5:30 pm. Indeed, another nice ride to a beautiful west coast spot.
Thanks for dropping by.
