I suggest you go on RVreviews.com.
Put in Washington, look for the cities in the area you want to be in, look at the reviews (if they are current), most will have a website listed you can click on. Give them a call.
Oh, spelled that wrong it's RVParkreviews.com.
Also Google workcamping jobs Washington state...tons of places that could probably use you in the winter for 10-20 hours per week for a free site.
That's how we traveled the country for the first 5 years of retirement.

B'Ham RV park liked the photo's..so come the 1st I can do a month to month there.
I had a bit of a problems at the Birch Bay State Park. Couldn't get very level, then this AM a ranger handed me tickets for $10 each x's 2 ! Even though both my and my son's cars fit in the spot, they charge $10 a night for each car, on top of the $30 a night to camp! RIDICULOUS! So I decided that was enough for me and aired back up and raised the levelers. The one that had the valve replaced super filled and the others not so much! SO, I called (it's Saturday) for mechanics and no one avail...got in touch with the one who worked on other things and he relieved the air and told me to park at the shop.."It's cheaper"...not so sure about that! So I'm back at the shop.
I'm tired, frustrated and close to broke.
B'Ham is going to be $500 a month + $50 elect deposit..and elect. wall to wall RV's, laundry, shower, WiFi, not much else.
Thousand Trails puts a person through regular background check, like for rental units, for monthly and it's $600 + elect..closer to the water, has dog run, etc.. showers, laundry..nice setting.
Then there's KOA, they are further up in Lynden. Right now you can get in for $600 a month off season. They have a couple lakes, nice treed setting, etc..
Worker on Wheels had an add for the Cedars RV park. When I called they said "It's too old!" no option to send photo's ect.

If you have an older Bird and having problems finding a place in B'Ham, WA, try the Bellingham RV Park!
The people here are super nice. No it's not a park full of trees and stuff to do but this is what I do have for $500 a month + Elect. off season: Free: wifi, tv, water, sewer, showers, coffee and cookies, $1.75 wash and $1.25 dry laundry.
My dog has walked me all over the place.. you don't really notice it's close to the airport and freeway. It's quiet and I don't have bright lights shining down into the vents, lol!
Fred Meyers has the cheapest gas around, and they are just a few blocks away.

Smile Finding a full time park

We have only been turned away twice and one of those we were able to send photos to and they decided to take us. I think that it is just because they don't want broken down equipment sitting in the park and then people leaving it.

We always keep updated photos of the Bird on the computer as well as our phone. If we are stuck in an area we just drive by. Most people have no idea our bird is 15 years old.

I'm of the impression there are a lot newer rigs that will break down and look like trash long before our Birds will.

We just keep it washed and cleaned and everything updated. They don't ask for the bill of sale or anything to see how old it is. The one park who asked and didn't even want the photos was in Arizona they were more so discriminating our ages not our bus. I don't have time to deal with people like that life is too short. I hope you have found a place.

We have also ran into city ordinances that will limit your stay where you can stay there so many months, drive down the road , boondock and then come back.

I moved into the Bellingham RV Park pin the first. Really nice people run it.
I agree, there's lots of newer ones that don't age well.
They even let conversion buses here. Its a fun group. I'm glad i landed here a while.
Free wifi, water, sewer, showers and t.v...cheap laundry. On the first I'll see what elect. Is running.
It's been cold and windy...but getting life stuff taken care of.

Default BMCs

I know a lot of "elite" Wanderlodge owners used to look down on BMCs (not so much anymore) but one thing about BMCs. They look like new coaches!

We just pull in and no one ever asks. We are in one of those "nothing over 10 years old" now campgrounds near Mobile AL for the winter (no one asked) , and constantly get about our coach and people are always surprised it is not "almost" new and often get compliments on how nice it looks.

Yay for BMCs !

Just pick up a couple of Newell decals on ebay and you're good to go.
