Rasar State Park Group Camp Improvements

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission used this grant to construct two cabins within the group camp facility at Rasar State Park in Skagit County. The 400 square foot cabins each provide space for up to five people to camp in a secluded forest setting. Four parking stalls, paved and lit access trails, utility connections and associated outdoor space with a picnic table, BBQ grill and fire ring were included within the scope of work. The cabins were built with heaters, and a bathroom, and will each provide ADA barrier-free access. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is overnight camping.
