It has officially been summer for three days and in Washington, along with many other places, that means camping. Washington is known for raining all the time but as someone who has lived here all her life I have to say that we have really nice summers.
Not too hot, not too cold, and weeks of pure sunshine. In my opinion we have the perfect mild summer that is ideal for camping. So here are some great camping spots here in Washington state.
