On a short visit to Kelso, I asked both the hotel and restaurant where I had dinner where I should visit. Both pointed to Sacajawea Park. I spent an hour walking around the park, visiting the man-made island and Japanese garden. It was lovely. The...More

This is by far THE best place for walks, runs, playgrounds, lounging in the grass, you name it. It's the crown jewel of Cowlitz County and Longview/Kelso area. Concerts in the park on Thursday nights during the summer and don't miss the Go Fourth festival...More

I'm afraid I don't know. I didn't see any motor homes around the park, but there is ample parking all around the perimiter. I think it's a question of their specific municipal rules, and I don't know them.

I’m sure you can. Track down Longview Parks or the city office. Possibly Chamber of Commerce to see what the requirements might be.
