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

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.
