“Great air museum with great, quiet, free parking areas. ”

Fantastic free boondocking location. Roomy, multiple, paved parking lots. It seems the one for RV parking is one between the main building (where the Spruce Goose is) and the water slide buildings (with the plane on the roof).. The museum is great and there’s a water park on the grounds, too, with a Boeing 747 on the roof that the slid... more

“Great place to stay”

We stayed here on night and they allow two. The museum is well done though admission is a bit high at $27. But it does include a movie. The displays did change since my last visit in 2015 so it’s worth the re-visit. The huge parking lot had plenty of space though there was some school bus driver training going on. Very quiet location.

There's not much bad to say about Evergreen. It's free, the museum is top notch, plenty of space to spread out and it's quiet at night yet well lit and secure. Check in was about as easy as it gets. You don't even have to pay to see the museum. They told us to go grab a spot in the big lot in back and that was about it. But we pai... more

Dry camping here was super easy as the parking lot is LARGE. We arrived at 9pm, parked on the eastern side of the complex. There was one other boondocker there. The impact of the aircraft lit up at night makes this an extra fun stop! Side note : we dumped immediately prior to arriving here at the town's Water Reclamation Plant... more

Stayed 8/21/17
Drove in around midnight, plenty of lighting so it felt pretty secure and saw quite a few other RVs and cars parked around.

It was really cool being able to see the giant planes everywhere too.
Would definitely stay again!

Wonderful, spent all day at the museum, then checked out all of the outside planes and tanks after 5 am. Plenty of room at the outer edges of the rear parking lot.

Thanks Evergreen air and space museum for a wonderful experience.

Checked in with the museum front desk. The young lady working said we were welcome to stay 2 nights the docents said we could stay as long as we want if we invited them to our party. We stayed 2. A lovely park with walking paths is located at the back of the parking lot. It was a great place to walk the dog and get some fresh air. ... more

I must see if you are in the area and are any type of Aviation buff. Large parking lot to camp in with security lights. I spent the afternoon exploring inside the Museum's and when they closed at 5 o'clock, I got my bicycle out and explored the static displays until well after dark. It was like having my own private Air Show! Ask abou... more

Great option for a free overnight spot if you're visiting the Evergreen Aviation Museum. We arrived in mid-afternoon and spent the remainder of the day visiting the museums (one building is air and the other is space). We spent the night and visited the waterpark the next day before moving to the RV park next door for the remainder o... more

Ever wanted to sneak into a museum after it was closed? Well, this is your closest opportunity. We arrived around 10 PM and we felt like we had just snuck into a museum after-hours because of all the planes on display outside. We spent time checking out the planes around the buildings after we parked the RV – a cool experience and a fu... more
