Traveling by RV? Try local RV websites at:   


There are three RV Parks that are close to the Red Lion Silverdale Hotel. They are listed below in order of closest proximity. Sandra & Earle have stayed overnight at the Kitsap Memorial State Park before and have found it to be a very nice park. It only has a few electric hookups though and the best camp sites are without electricity.  The ad for the Rhododendron RV Park in the phone book states that it is very "park like", which most commercial RV parks are not. By the way, Poulsbo is spelled with an "o", but it is pronounced like the name Paul. One of those mysteries of life.
