We love camping in our home state. Some of the most beautiful scenery in the world is within a few miles of our home in Everett.
Heading West we immediately cross the Salish Sea which is home to Killer Whales, Salmon, huge Octopus and a fleet of Ferries.
Hidden gun emplacements, expansive parade lawns and restored Victorian-era Officers homes place history front and center. Today's park plays host to workshops, festivals and family reunions,
There is even a new brew pub and dining center for those campers wanting a bit less relaxed time in the camp kitchen.
Close your eyes and imagine Fort Casey as it must have been 100 years ago, filled with eager young soldiers, officers, mechanics and staff. Stand at the Admiralty Head lighthouse or in a cliff-side gun battery and scan the horizon, as the enlisted men must have done during World Wars I and II.
This park is located on an isthmus sticking out into Banks Lake which is a reservoir formed by Grand Coulee Dam. The park has wonderful paved sites with grass and access to the sandy swimming beaches. For fun, you can go see the laser light show on the face of the dam in the summer months.
