Best Camping Near Everett and Seattle

The summer in the Pacific Northwest is always a treat from floating on the Puget Sound to drinking cider at local breweries. Another amazing quality this state has is its campgrounds. Between the beach sites and mountain ranges, the possibilities are by no means limited near the Seattle and Everett area.

Here are our top picks for camping sites on this side of the mountains:

Florence Island

Wanting to take a trip over to the islands? We have the perfect spot! Grab your tent and head on over to Florence Island by Camano Island State Park for gorgeous sunrises and wilderness views. The campsite has views of Florence Island farmland, Whidbey Island, and Port Susan Bay in order to give you a full view of the Pacific Northwest.

They have a large picnic area for your daily meals and a full kitchen with showers to accommodate your needs. Biking and kayaking are offered by the site if you’re in need of another little adventure during your stay.

Anderson’s Bambooland

Wanting to move closer to the mountains? Head on over to Anderson’s Bambooland in Monroe. This cute spot by Monroe has a river and local flower field next to the site in order to give you beautiful scenery during your stay.

The Skykomish river runs directly next to this 100-year-old site for campers to swim and relax while enjoying their stay. This quick 30-minute drive is the perfect distance to explore closer to the mountains without driving hours to get there. Pets are also allowed on the grounds so bringing your furry friend along is no big deal.

New Moon Sanctuary

Is Glamping more your speed? The New Moon Sanctuary has beautiful tents to rent, portable water stations, electric hookups for appliances, and fire areas in order to make you feel relaxed and more at ease when living in the wilderness for a few days. This cozy oasis is near Saltwater State Park and only a 30-minute drive to escape the city while also having the comforts of home.

They also come complete with a bubble date night package with blankets and food to create the perfect atmosphere. With the ability to host up to 10 people it’s the perfect getaway!

Hollyhock Farm Forest Retreat

Our final recommendation is Hollyhock Farm Forest Retreat, a cute forest camping area by Duvall, Washington. This location is further in the Seattle direction but the drive is worth the fire rings and glamping elements if you choose to do so.

Their sites hold up to 5-people in each area and also provide a private cabin for individuals who prefer less traditional camping. Private parking is also available and easy to access from the site. Duvall is only a 5-minute drive in case you are in need of some groceries or even want to check out a couple of breweries in town before you leave your little vacation. The Snoqualmie river right by allows you to swim, fish, kayak, and boat along the stream while being close to your temporary home. We know you’ll feel right at home in this tucked-away getaway.

Between the glamping at New Moon Sanctuary to the Skykomish river running through Anderson’s Bambooland, the Pacific Northwest has views for miles and won’t leave you thinking your camping experience is less than spectacular.
