Rasar State Park
Tucked along the Skagit River, Rasar State Park offers forested campgrounds, grassy fields, Cascade foothills and the clear blue Skagit River. Whether you're seeking a fun, friendly atmosphere or a contemplative retreat, you'll find it at Rasar.
Pitch your tent in the cool forest, or relax on the porch of a well-appointed cabin. And bring your dog too (keep Spot on her leash, of course). Rasar, its staff and one of its three cabins are pet-friendly.
Kids will find days of entertainment skipping stones on the water, organizing games in the field, exploring the forest, enjoying junior ranger activities and romping in Rasar's playground. Couples and singles will find tranquility on the park's many trails, and adventurers can use Rasar as a welcoming base for recreation on the river or in the neighboring mountains.
Whether you've come for a week or a day, Rasar State Park will give you a new appreciation for the splendor of Northwestern Washington.
Rasar State Park is a 180-acre camping park with 4,000 feet of freshwater shoreline on the Skagit River. Wildlife observation, especially eagle watching, can be excellent, particularly in early fall and winter.
