General Information

Description - Washington state has seen a surge of popularity in the last decade. Fortunately this population growth hasn't drastically affected the natural landscape. Washington has 149 state parks located around the state.

Attractions - Some of Washington's more popular state parks include Old Fort Townsend State Park, Tolmie State Park, Lake Wenatchee State Park, Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park, and Sucia Island State Park.

Recreation - Recreation opportunities in Washington state will please the skilled mountaineer and the novice hiker. Experienced individuals looking for a challenging climb can attempt to summit Mount Rainier. The National Forests that line the Cascades provide endless outdoor opportunities. Lakes and rivers will satisfy the desires of boaters, anglers, water skiers and sailors.

Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region. The Cascades split the state and alter weather patterns. The terrain east of the mountains receives significantly less rainfall than that west of the mountains, 12 inches is the annual average. Temperatures in this region are lower during the winter months, because it is landlocked. Frequent winds coming down from the mountains also contribute to the low temperatures of eastern Washington.

Western Washington is temperate, due to the coastal geography. The water is a stabilizing force for the climate, making extreme temperatures rare. The area receives large amounts of rainfall from Pacific storms and some snow during winter months.

The mountains of Washington receive large amounts of water-laden snow from October through May. These peaks remain snow covered throughout the year.

Location - Washington State Parks are located all over the state of Washington. Maps are available on the individual pages.
