Agate Acres RV Park

Campground Description:  Agate Acres RV Park is a privately owned and operated facility located approximately 21 miles south of Kennewick, WA, near the intersection of Interstate 82/US Highway 395 and Washington State Route 14.  All sites at Agate Acres are full hook-up complete with water, electricity and sewer.  The overall park is best described as "utilitarian."  There are a few Poplar trees along the edges of the campground - there is no grass and the closest thing to landscaping are the sage brush and tumbleweeds growing around the RV park.  The entire park at Agate Acres is covered in crushed rock.  Agate Acres has recently completed a community center that offers  restrooms, showers, an exercise room and a entertainment room.  Restaurants and shopping are available in the Tri-Cities (25 miles North), in Umatilla, OR, (4 miles South) and in Hermiston, OR, (12 miles Southeast).  Note that high winds and dust are an occasional problem in the area, sometimes necessitating parking jacks under RVs to hold them steady.  Open year round.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds.  The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site.  Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide.  Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping.  If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners.  In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased.  Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping.  While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
