Planning a Late Summer Camping Trip?

Our Campground has 25 campsites with water and electricity at each one.

Planning a late summer camping trip? Then head out to Camp Casey. Our Campground has 25 campsites with water and electricity at each one. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire ring.   Some sites accommodate RV’s as well as tents. Men’s and women’s showers and restrooms are included in your rental.

In a  previous blog  we discussed engaging your kids, getting them outdoors and away from the distractions of everyday life. We think Camp Casey is the perfect jumping off point for your outdoor adventures.

Need some ideas? This past April, Boy Scout Troop 604 used our fields for their compass activities. Of course if getting a badge for this activity isn’t important, you have soccer fields, areas to fly kites, basketball courts and of course our pool is open until Labor Day.

The trails in and around Casey skirt the edge of Douglas-fir forests. Some trees are estimated to be more than 200 years old. Check out the plant life and you’ll find everything from golden paintbrush to brittle cactus. Prefer to keep your head down and search for mushrooms? Walk through the woods and you’ll find bumpy brown mushrooms beneath the rhododendrons, or dainty white mushrooms protected by cedars. Do a little research in advance so you can impress your kids with their proper names.

Maybe your preference is bird watching? In the sky or on the water you’ll see everything from bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, coastal seabirds and shore birds like scoters, hooded mergansers, and harlequin ducks.

Explore Casey’s trails and see how many of the historic Coast Artillery Batteries you can find – make a record of the names. Start with Battery Parker on Camp Casey and keep walking onto the grounds of Ft. Casey. Want more info on the Batteries, see our earlier blog at  http://gocampcasey.com/fort-casey-state-park/fort-casey-part-2 /

While you’re on the grounds of Ft. Casey, become part of the  Washington State Parks Centennial GeoTour  where they invite you to Explore Washington state parks and earn a Geocoin by joining. If you’ve never GeoCached before, it’s an opportunity to put your GPS and mobile phone to work and do a little more exploring!

Consider Camp Casey for your next outdoor adventure.
