    So I didn't know that camping at Reds this summer is no longer an option unless you want to rent one of their tent/cabins (most of you probably already were aware of that). I was thinking of camping at the KOA, but are there other options?

    I was going to try to camp at Red's this weekend for the first time, I guess not. Where is the KOA located?

    There are all sorts of spots- umptanem, koa, anywhere up manastash rd, vantage, it just depends on where you are floating and how far you are willing to drive. There are some really cool camp sites up manastash rd. they are all public and free. Just drive out manashtash toward lost lake trail head and find a spot on the side of the road. The only potential problem would be snow. I assue that there are some spots up in cle elum, roslyn, and ronald too. Have fun fishing should be good im going to drift tommorrow.

    There is also camping at Lmuma, the Slab and Roza. The Slab is closed for improvements the next few months but should be open by summer. The Yakima RV park (near Ringer) is also an option if you have a RV/trailer.

    Once the Slab rec area is done it should be a nice option. They're adding 40 RV sites and doing a lot of work there right now. The Yakima River RV Park off Ringer Rd (mentioned above) is a decent place to park your rig (or tent)- the spots are close together, but it's secure and close to the river. I heard rumor that once Red's is built out they'll still have a few RV spots. There are a few spots at Umtanum as well.

    you have heard wrong, there won't be any room for RV's at Red's when all is said and done. The only camping will be the tent camp and that may have to go as well to make room for boat storage..

    Bill,

    Thanks for clearing up the rumor. Hopefully the revamped facilities at the Slab will stay nice, clean and free from petty criminals. I always worry about leaving an RV in an unsecured location while I'm on the water all day. That's why I don't mind paying to stay at a private spot.
