Camping in the Northwest - From a family who thought they'd share notes
Rasar State Park 
 
Reservations through Washington State Parks.
 
Rasar State Park is a 169-acre camping park with 4,000 feet of freshwater shoreline on the Skagit River. Wildlife observation opportunities, especially for eagle watching, are excellent, particularly in early fall and early winter.
 
Overall. 
Very clean park with a number of well kept trails.  There is a nice amphitheatre with programs offered -- ranger talks, movies, etc.
 
Campsite.
Nice campsites with standard and service sites random throughout the park.  Very interesting how it is set up -- with some sites of walk-in biker/hiker just randomly placed.  In the tent area, there are some odd looking shelters.
 
Because this campground is right on the Skagit River, it does not offer Sewer at the campsites.
 
There isn't a lot of room to "play" in each campsite (ladder ball, etc.) however there are a number of open grassy areas throughout the park.
 
Other Accommodations.
  • Cabins (3) available by reservations.
  • Adirondack (2) three-sided sleeping shelters available to walk-in campers
 
Group Camp.
Across the road from the main entrance, there are the Group Camps and Cabins.  It is a beautiful area for nice big groups!!
 
The Group Camp area offers a nice playground, lots of open areas with shelters, three guest houses, some walking trails. This part of the campground, is quite a long walk / bike ride from the water, however..... but a great place to hold a big group function!
 
Bathrooms.
Nice and well kept.  Only two structures in the entire park.
 
Trails.
A number of well kept trails that lead all along the river. 
 
Day Use Area.
Nice area with a great play structure and reservable shelters.  Very nice restroom with "pet parking" outside of the building.
 
Skagit River.
Very swift river and too cold to swim in.  Pretty rocky and windy so not much of an area to just "hang out" at.  Don't recommend shore fishing here on the river.  According to the staff, Grande Lake is nearby for salmon fishing.
 
Bikes or No Bikes?
Possibly ok for just getting around the park and to/from playground and reservable shelters.  Would need a Mountain Bike for the trails.
 
Front check - in office.
Friendly staff.  The office has a "store" but only sells expensive decor -- not any useful items for campers such as bug spray, sunscreen, etc.
 
Vicinity.
Sedro Wooley is about 15 miles from the park and offers a Fred Meyer, Hardware Store, etc.
 
Yes, we are camping, but we still need the Electronics.
Air card – sufficient 
Cell phone - sufficient
