Washington's State and National Parks
From the lush forests of Olympic National Park to the jagged peaks of Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington is home to some of the most stunning state and national parks in the Pacific Northwest. Whether you're looking for a peaceful stroll along a beach or a challenging hike up a mountain, Washington has it all. The San Juan Islands are a popular spot for camping, kayaking, and whale-watching, while Lake Chelan National Recreation Area provides a peaceful getaway from city life. Not to be forgotten are North Cascades National Park and its cascading waterfalls and towering peaks, as well as Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, with views of an active volcano and the surrounding area's natural beauty.
