Camping, anyone?

Washington is a good place to do it. Altogether, the State Parks system has 6,226 campsites (for tents and recreation vehicles), cabins, vacation houses, and group camps. Those are the ones that can be reserved. They don’t include camping on islands and other non-reservable areas. To make a reservation or get information, go online at washington.goingtocamp.com or call 1-888-226-7688.

State-hosted camping, along with Mount Rainier National Park (with 446 campsites) and Olympic National Park, help make Washington one of the top states in the country in number and variety of campsites. The state and national park campsites combined top 6,600-plus.

Options for camping in the Washington State Parks system include cabins like these at Kitsap Memorial State Park, located seven miles from Poulsbo.
