We have been long time tent campers and last summer purchased a trailer finally. Looking for great weekend places near Seattle (3 hour drive max) to go camping. Would like it to be full hookup but water & electric would be fine. Also like to have a nice private site with our neighbors not right on top of our site. We went to Grayland State Park at the end of the summer and loved it!!
Also prefer State, National or County park.
Anyone have any recommendations??
I am assuming that you are looking for campground recommendations within a 3 hour drive of Seattle. Some to consider: On the Olympic Peninsula, Fort Worden State Park in Pt Townsend is right on the ocean, Sequim State Park and Dungeness Spit are close by and both are lovely. Dungeness does not have hook ups but makes up for it in ambience. You may be fine without hookups for a weekend.
On Whidbey Island, Deception Pass State Park (full hook-ups) and Ft. Ebey STate Park are great. I have been told that Camano Island StatePark is nice but I haven't been there.
I don't see all of these parks listed in the review section of this site but you may want to google Washington state and regional parks to get more info about hookups and size of the sites. By and large, Washington state parks are wonderful!
