Flaming Geyser State Park is a hidden gem in Washington that not many know about, despite its close proximity to the sprawling metropolis of Seattle and the capital of Olympia. In fact, if you head along the Route 169 from Seattle, it takes just 45-minutes to reach Black Diamond, the gateway town to this 480-acre state park.
Flaming Geyser State Park is named after its central feature, a natural gas vent that once shot a flame eight feet into the air. Nowadays, the flame is only 6-8 inches tall, but it’s still worth a look during your Flaming Geyser State Park camping adventure, as is the second bubbling geyser that can be found in the park. Other than these unique features, most campers choose to book an RV in King County to explore the many hiking trails, set sail down the Green River, and try their hand at ice fishing during the winter.
Camping near Flaming Geyser State Park provides easy access to the park’s five miles of hiking trails, including a short trail that leads to the Flaming Geyser and the neighboring Bubbling Geyser. For something a little more strenuous, consider taking on The Canyon Trail or The River Trail, which takes walkers on a journey along the banks of the Green River. Unfortunately, the ground here is suspect to landslides and flooding, so make sure to talk to the park office for the most up-to-date information on the condition of the walking trails.
When you rent a camper at Flaming Geyser Park, you’ll also have the opportunity to explore Green River, which envelopes the park on three out of four sides. Although there are no boat ramps to be found along this stretch of the river, those motorhomes camping with a kayak or canoe can launch it into the water on one of the naturally sloping banks. When you’ve got kids in your group, make sure to bring along some inflatable tubes as the gently flowing river, and natural ending points makes for a relaxing day of tubing.
Avid fishers RV camping at Flaming Geyser State Park will be glad to learn that fishing is possible year-round from the 3-mile shoreline it shares with Green River. You won’t find any trophy-sized fish here, but it’s the perfect spot for a relaxing afternoon of fishing and to watch the annual salmon run. During the winter, when the river freezes over, ice fishing for steelheads becomes a popular pastime. It’s worth noting that the ice thickness is not monitored here, so you’ll need to practice ice safety at all times and remember to spread your weight!
When you have an RV rental near Flaming Geyser State Park, the likelihood is that you’ll need somewhere to park it up for the night. Unfortunately, no state park RV camping is allowed here, but there is a well-facilitated RV park just a ten-minute drive away.
Sitting on the banks of Lake Sawyer, Lake Sawyer Resort provides campers with over 115 sites to choose from, many of which are equipped with electric, water, and sewage hookups. In addition to these conveniences, visitors will benefit from a good cable signal, strong WiFi signal, an onsite laundry room, a general store, and a swimming beach. Should you not be traveling in a self-contained RV rental, there are also modern restrooms that can be used at no extra charge.
Alternatively, head south of the park to Enumclaw Expo Centre RV Park. Although there are only 25 sites on offer here, offering partial hookup facilities for your rental RV, you shouldn't have a problem rocking up without a reservation. You'll also find a free WiFi connection, basic washroom facilities, and a public grill for the convenience of all guests. What's better, your four-legged companion is allowed to come along for the adventure, as long as they are well-behaved and remain on a leash at all times.
When you’re in need of a change of scenery from the great outdoors, head into Seattle where museums, family-friendly activities, and fantastic eateries await you. Driving through the city, it’s impossible to miss the silver, pink, and blue metallic domes of the Museum of Pop Culture. The extravagance continues inside the domes, where countless interactive exhibits explore the ideas and inspiration behind pop culture over the years. Head into the Sound Lab to perform music in front of a virtual audience or explore the personal artifacts of iconic rock stars, including Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix.
If you’ve got no problem with whizzing up glass tubes in a glass elevator, you don't want to miss the chance to take a ride to the top of Seattle’s Space Needle. Visible from almost everywhere you are in Seattle, this skyscraper has become one of the city’s most iconic sites. Once at the top, you can explore a 360-degree view of the cityscape and beyond.
Should you be looking for something a little more children-friendly, head to the Seattle Aquarium, located along Elliot Bay waterfront. Open since 1977; this marine zoo has not only been providing a source of amazement for visitors from around the world, but also one of education of marine conservation. Exhibitions include the Window on Washington’s Waters, which replicates the sea life you’d expect to find off the state’s shoreline and a mesmerizing glass donut display where visitors are engulfed by moon jellies, a giant pacific octopus, sea stars and more.
