National Parks in Washington
Washington is home to three national parks: Olympic, North Cascades, and Mount Rainier. Each park has its own distinct beauty and opportunities for visitors.
Located on the Olympic Peninsula, Olympic National Park is the largest state park and is home to old-growth temperate rain forests. Southeast of Seattle you’ll find Mount Rainier National Park, famous for its iconic volcano and wildflower meadows. Up north, North Cascades National Park is a quieter, less-traveled park boasting rugged mountain peaks and endless waterfalls.
