There are 124 state parks in Washington, and each year, they see a collective 40 million visitors. But while many people flock to our more popular parks, such as Deception Pass, there are plenty of local gems that stay largely uncrowded for most of the year.

We’re not suggesting you won’t see other people at these spots… 40 million visitors is a lot, and our state parks are all fairly well known. But if you prefer to enjoy nature and avoid large crowds, this road trip is for you.

Which state parks would you add to this road trip route?
