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.
Here are our Favorite Washington State Parks
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.
Fort Ebey offers camping, hiking, and old gun batteries to explore with your flashlight. Bring a picnic and your kite to the beach or hike the bluff trails. The park and adjacent Kettles County Park offer an extensive hiking and bike trail systems.
This beautiful park includes fantastic camping sites for both individuals and groups and for those without a rig, cabins for rent. The park has 3 miles of hiking trails winding through former homestead fields, old growth forest and along the Skagit River. The park is open year round.
Maryhill State Park campground includes tent and full hookup campsites, picnic areas, a boat launch and a swimming area on the Columbia River. Originally designed and build by the Army Corps of Engineers, and transferred to the state. The park is minutes away from Maryhill Museum, Maryhill Winery and the Stonehenge!
Seaquest's the state park and primary Visitor Center for Mt. St. Helen's National Monument. The park is located across the highway from the Visitor Center on the banks of Silver Lake which was formed as a result of the St. Helen's eruption in 1980. An trail connects the State Park to the Visitor Center.
This state park is located between Olympia and Aberdeen Washington and less than 2 miles from the town of Montesano. The park has many wonderful features that make it one of our favorite parks including the hiking trails that ring the lake and the great lakeside campsites.
Located west of the towns of Omak and Okanogan is the old mining town of Conconully and the rather interesting park with 3 different venues. We camped in the Upper Conconully Lake campground which is FULL Hookup but only has 12 sites.
