Washington State Parks wants to limit campground stays to 10 days

June 3, 2024

If you travel with your RV to the Pacific Northwest, a new state proposal could affect you.  Washington State Parks want to cut how long you can stay in the park system. The numbers don’t seem to add up with many other public campground systems.

Under Washington’s current policy, guests can stay in a given state park between 10 and 14 consecutive nights. Individual park managers make the decision on the actual number, and they apply the limits during the high season from April 1 to September 30. The rest of the year, October 1 through March 31, campers can stay up to 20 nights, then vacate the park for three consecutive nights, and stay up to 40 nights total in a 60-day time period. RV Travel
