The Pioneer Trails RV Resort is located on Anacortes, which is one of Washington’s Islands in the upper north west. We chose Anacortes because of the ferry service that they have to Sidney Canada. We arrived on May 12th from Hoodsport WA.
The park is quite large and the sites are very wide. Since we have a 42ft with three slide outs it was nice to have a large place to spread out. We only stayed four days here because we left her and went to Victoria for the other three days.
One of the amenities that I look for is the laundry facilities. Is it clean, how old are the machines and how much does it cost? We have a washer/dryer combo in our coach but it’s pretty small and one load can take a good part of the day. This laundry room shown in the picture was amazingly clean, very new machines and the price wasn’t bad.
Speaking of price, I remember when we were in Moab last year and fairly new at this laundry stuff. The RV park that we were staying only had two washers and two dryers. I had walked over to the facility several times but it seamed like everyone had the same idea. So I told my husband that we needed to go into town and find a laundry facility. That I wasn’t going to waste anymore of my time here. We found a laundry mat in town and started to do the four loads that I wasn’t able to do at the park. Unbeknownst to me, the price to do laundry was three times as much. OMG, so what would of cost me $1.50 a load was costing me almost $6.00…. Ouch! Since I had made such a stink about it to my husband, we stayed and payed the price. When we got done we could of gone out to dinner and still did the laundry at the park. Now I know why those women were lined up at the Rv park laundry. Lesson learned.
We took a walk around the park to find a tiny house. I don’t think we had ever seen one in person. I so wanted to knock on the door and ask for a tour but my husband wouldn’t let me. Hehe. It really looked new, two story and in a nice spot in the park as well. I guess I don’t really get the concept of them. It’s just like any of the trailers here. It’s hooked up to water, sewer,and electricity. You still have to pull it to a site like a trailer. It’s more like transporting a moble home than a trailer just cuter.
