Newport has a very good aquarium.
But directly across the street from the KOA is Fort Stevens SP at half the price or less. The KOA has a nice children's play area and my grand son and I road our bikes across the street and they didn't mind. They do have a small general store too.

We do alot of our camping on Chinook Pass (State Hwy 410 which is west of Yakima).Many nice campgrounds in the Naches District of Wenatchee National Forest. Hwy 410 then goes into Mount Rainier National Park on the Northeast side. On a clear day the views from Tipsoo Lake are incredible. White River CG is a great place to camp near Sunrise Visitors Center. There are so many great places to camp in Washington, we are truly blessed to live here. Have a great trip.

We actually only live about 45min from Mt Rainier so after seeing how people rec your first trip be closer to home, I've been wondering if that might be the way to go. It is close and I've been wanting to hike a trail or two

One thing you should be aware of, Oregon and Washington have some very nice places to visit. So, A really large herd of Rvers both local and those coming from afar are gobbling up reservations.

Example: It took me two years to get a reservation into Silver Falls National Park. I had the site picked out that I wanted and soon as the reservation desk opened I was trying to get in. The first year, not knowing any better I just drove up to the gate and asked if they had any openings. The guard said yes, in the over flow parking area. We went some place else that year.

So, pick out where you want to go then have a couple of back up sites also picked out.

I forgot to mention if you camp in the Fort Stevens neighborhood that there is a lot to see and do. The state park is nice but can be hard to get a site at times. Besides Fort Stevens there is Fort Clatsop where Lewis and Clark spent the winter. It is well worth the time to visit there. The Astoria Column is different and offers a view of the Columbia River that is breath taking. Seaside is just a short drive and has a marine aquarium and lots of places for tourists to leave their money. The Tillamook cheese factory is a nice day trip.
