This is what summer is all about.

Is there anything that says summer more than camping on the Washington coast? The Evergreen State is beautiful all year round, but it is next level magical when summer hits.

Whether you’re hitting up one of the island chains in the Puget Sound or heading down the coast, you can’t go wrong with any of these campsites.
