Outside of the campground, there are plenty trailheads within Concrete that’ll take you through other areas of the mountains.
Rasar State Park also offers state park RV rental campers 4000 feet of freshwater front on the Skagit River. Teach the kids the old school art of skipping stones or whip out the fishing rods to find what’s hiding under the surface. The shoreline is a great spot to sunbathe while you find relaxation.
For those traveling with children or energetic teens, you can kick your feet up while they take off to the playground facilities. Whether you’ve brought along your own lawn games or allow the kids to climb on the park’s own facilities, there’s plenty of fun to be had and games to be played.
