WASHINGTON LAND YACHT HARBOR HISTORY
In 1961 the members of the Northwest Unit, now the Washington Unit, of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International bought the initial 43.7 acres in Thurston County, WA close to the city of Lacey and that was the beginning of the Washington Land Yacht Harbor.
Over the years the property was extended to 61.3 acres and 99-year residential leases became available to the members of the Washington Unit. There are now 192 residential lots in the Harbor. We have our own wells providing excellent water supply and the park is beautifully landscaped and maintained, all done by volunteers.
In addition to the residences, there is the “Terraport” with 163 full hook-up sites, used by visiting WBCCI members and caravans. The members of the Unit built “Harmony Hall” in the early seventies, a great facility for up to 400 people, with a fully equipped kitchen, game rooms and a large performance stage. The Washington Unit holds numerous rallies during the year with WBCCI members from all over the country attending. Weekly bridge, joker and other games are held as well as Saturday morning “Coffee and Rolls” and frequent “Dining in Harmony” dinners. Guests on the Terraport are always welcome. There is free WiFi available.
Many different groups from other RV organizations use the Terraport and other facilities for their rallies and Harmony Hall can be rented to outsiders for parties or other events.
There is a beautiful grove, called the Tveten Grove, with many trees and a picnic area, and a great place to walk your dog. Also a “dead” storage area is available for Unit members with room for 30 RV’s and some room for small boats.
On January 2009, Washington Land Yacht Harbor, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Washington Unit WBCCI, was incorporated as a for-profit corporation, and as of July 1, 2009 became the owner and manager of the property at 9101 Steilacoom Road, Olympia, WA.
