Rasar State Park

Sometimes you just need to escape the city, breathe fresh air and focus on nothing but the dancing flames of a campfire. I recently found myself in that position and took to the internet to find a nearby place to get my fix. Not an easy feat when most local options book up to capacity months in advance. Thankfully I found a campsite about 2 hours from home in Rasar State Park. Perfect for a short get-away.

The campground itself isn’t very large, which suits me fine, and it’s very well maintained. Each site is far enough away from the next so you don’t feel like you’re eating dinner with your neighbours. The park boasts areas for day use, a playground, an amphitheatre for “meet the ranger” and “movie night” family events – and a clean washroom building with flush toilets and pay showers (I weep with gratitude!). Firewood is available for purchase at a reasonable price.

Trail loops meander through the park, some paved for visitors with mobility issues. We walked across a hayfield and continued through the forest until we reached the Skagit River. Here are some photos from our trip.
