Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park Is One Of Washington’s Underrated Gems

The best part of living in Washington is knowing that there is beauty lying in every square mile of the state… you just have to know where to look for it. While our coastal territory and well-known spots are certainly stunning, Washington also has a lot of underrated territory most tourists aren’t aware of. One such area is Vantage, the Columbia River Gorge town that happens to be home to the beautiful Ginkgo Petrified Forest. The rugged beauty of this area is unparalleled.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park/Wanapum Recreational Area is fully open, but social distancing measures are encouraged. Come check out Washington’s state gem at this hidden gem of a park.
