Recreate Responsibly Outdoors

From camping and hiking to fishing and kayaking, Washington State is known for epic outdoor recreation. That popularity has led to high visitation at some of the state’s national parks and top destinations, especially during the summer months. Many organizations in Washington — including the Recreate Responsibly Coalition, Washington Trails Association, Washington State Parks, and the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife, among others — are working diligently to help visitors and residents alike recreate safely and responsibly in Washington’s outdoor spaces.

Below, you’ll find tips and links to resources to help you make the most of your trip. Find seasonal information covering everything from wildfires and water safety to winter recreation. New resources will be added as they become available, so check back often when planning your trip. Be sure to explore other sections of our Responsible Travel Hub as well.

Thank you for helping protect Washington’s natural resources and making the outdoors a safe, inclusive space for all.
