Pip Pip Ole Boy. I’m off to MY country club today.

Yakima Elks Golf and Country Club

The Yakima Elks Lodge is right off 97.  My GPS took me to this road and I thought The GPS had guided me down the wrong road.  But the sign reads Yakima Elks so it had to be right.

What a place.  This has to be the most fantastic Elks Lodge I have ever stayed at.   There was no camp host to tell me where to go so I just pulled over, went inside, showed my card and paid.  Then I could pick any site that was available.  I grabbed the one closest to the driving range.  I never in my wildest dreams ever thought I would have golf course property.  At least for two nights.  Whoopee!!!

View out my window

I took these pics out my window so they are a bit dark.  The first one looks out to the driving range.

This guy pulled up in a real fancy golf cart with sides and chrome wheels.  HA!

This is a view of the course and the practice putting green.  The course is highly manicured.

This shows where I am parked for 2 nights.  They park the rigs right on the edge of the golf course.  It was $25 per night and well worth it with water, electricity and dump station.  I’m the little guy on the end.

They serve dinners here  from 5 to 8 pm Wednesday thru Saturday.  I got here on Tuesday so heated up some frozen Trader Joe’s pizza and scarfed.  It was good, but plan on going into the lodge tonight for dinner.

I have stayed at many Elks Lodges since joining, but never anything like this.  I feel like I just joined the rich and the famous.  Even Chica is strutting her stuff on her walks!

  1. Tons of great hikes in that area. Out west of you at the elk feeding station is a grand area to hike.

  2. Wow! That’s a gorgeous lodge and golf course! My guess is that all the wealthy apple growers in the area have supported that lodge for years! Enjoy your time there–almost at your destination! So glad you enjoyed Shaniko–it looks a lot fancier than when I was there in the early 70’s! I can just see Chica high-stepping along! Have fun!
