This absolutely sets Longview apart from other small towns. The town is a planned community with many wonderful features, but Sacajawea (locals insist on the old pronunciation!) is its heart. Perfect for families year around, but watch out for photographers shooting wedding and senior photos!

There were several dogs on leashes when I was there, and they were clearly welcome. I don’t see why the 4th would be any different.

I'm afraid I don't know. I didn't see any motor homes around the park, but there is ample parking all around the perimiter. I think it's a question of their specific municipal rules, and I don't know them.
