Love knowing about some parks near by and other locations I like to visit. Now I can incorporate a park in my trip.
Bought as a gift for my Nephew who just moved from FLA to WA He will get great use out of it
Better than imagined! Dreaming of this year's adventures. Shared with friends...and they purchased one also!!
Can't wait till weather is better to start my adventures.
My purchase was a gift, and at work there was so much interest, several people took the title and web info to purchase their own copies!! Now I just need to come along on one of their trips! See how that works?
I was expecting the book to include photos of attractions at the various parks.
Nothing like I was expecting. It is more of a journal format. No pictures or information about the parks. No refund either. I contacted the company, and there was no response.
I’m really disappointed. Was hoping some of the other reviews were wrong, but they’re not. I don’t know in what world this qualifies as anything more than a journal. There is little to no information about the parks. And, no returns. It’s 2023, how are there no returns? Incredibly frustrated. Will not be purchasing from this shop again or recommending.
Great quality-excited to check off some places I’ve never visited
This was a gift for my son and his girlfriend. They love camping and bought a trailer so bought this book for them. They love it! Said it had a lot of great information for their future trips.
My wife and I are FINALLY retired. We've lived in Washington state for over 20 years, but have never really had the chance to explore. Our new guide book is laid out so well with not only information, but also ways to remember each State park we visit. This is a great product!!
Was a little disappointed that the book didn’t have more photos and references of each state park but it does have a planning page for each park. I just thought there would be more suggestions for each park.
We are taking a trip to the Washington coast in July. We are using our book to plan our daily adventures from our hotel and back. The pictures and descriptions in the books are great! They make it hard to decide which trips to take abd which trips to try next time.
I was really hoping there was information about each park, and that these were available 40 + years ago. We have already been to so many parks that we'll never get back to and it's hard to remember when we went and who with before. These books would be great for young families or couples just starting out traveling and exploring.
I will be using this every weekend

Nice - but a few too many journal pages
I love the book and the concept of it all. There are a couple of things I would like to see in this book. I understand it may raise the price, but I think it would be worth it. The first would be a bigger fold-out map with a little more detail. The map in the book gets a little crowded in some areas. The second thing I would like would be a few less scripted writing cues(some of these parks are pretty small, might not be a lot of laughing, unforeseeable moments) and a little more space for free-form writing. The last thing would be color-coding of the parks based on their location. Maybe break the state into six sections. I really do like this book, and it is going to motivate me to get out and explore more! Thank you.
Disappointed in item
I am anxious to put it to use this spring. It’s a beautiful book and appears to be just what I was looking for to to keep a journal of our experiences! Thank you! Very sturdy binding and that is appreciated!
The book is great, and I look forward to using it this year! I really wanted an actual map of the state of Washington included, meaning a state map like Rand McNally or Thomas Guide road map with detailed highways, back roads, etc. It could be a fold out map. It would also be great if the book had a map of each state park or campground listed. I found specific campground maps at Washington State Parks website. By the parks name, for example, Pg 93 is Fort Columbia State Park, put a marker with 93 (make it match what is on the main map) by the name so at a glance it corresponds, and include park address.
I bought this as a present for my nephew and his fiancé. They loved it !
I bought this for my granddau and her husband who love camping. They’re very excited to visit EVERY WA State Park!
Well packed and protected for shipping. So helpful in finding cool routes to fun places.
We are excited to get adventuring with our new Discovery Pass
Is for a gift so I haven't opened it but it looks amazing and I look forward to giving it to them. Hope it inspires them and reminds them of fun times together offline ;-)
It is a beautiful book, but a couple things I expected. 1. A brief description of what the park is known for, or a mention of a 'must see/do' at the park. 2. Some area designation... maybe by colored edge- is the park in the NW/NE, part of the state. The map at the front of the book is great, but If I was looking for a park in the NE part of Washington and could scan the edges for a Green (or whatever color) tab it would be so much easier. 3. more photos would be great too- but realizing that would impact the cost significantly
I love all the detail that went into this book! Only thing I could offer to change is use better quality paper. I'd be willing to pay more for that. I was hoping there would be a color photo of each place with its info. I imagine that would double or triple the price though. I can't wait to use this.
Great gift Great seller thank you again!
My goal is to visit all of our state parks here in Washington. I hadn't realized just how many there are not that far from me! This guide will be a fun way to chronicle the journey.
You can put so much info in it. I also like that all the state parks are listed in the back. It’s a great book!!
I bought this for my 10 year old son for an upcoming road trip we're doing around parts of WA. I love the layout of the book and even more that it's spiral bound, makes it so much easier to write in! We've already been to a handful of the parks and filled in the pages. It's just such a cute idea
Lovely handbook with beautiful photographs I’ll be sharing this with my granddaughter one day
I like the scrapbook. I would love if it included some information (however brief) about each park. Like, bathrooms? BBQ? Camping available? Trails?
The details for each entry are awesome and I love the map detailing all the park locations which helps me plan my adventures.
It was so nice having a page for Lake Chelan and a place where we could put all our information in. I already have a postcard to glue and fun stories to write. I know for a fact, we forgot the small details over time and will be be a joy to look back on.
This will be a great book to capture our memories traveling to various state parks. It has two pages for each park and a spot for a picture, notes, dates, etc.
Wonderful planner and excited to start my adventures!
I bought this as a gift for my husband. He was beyond excited. There is so much information on each of the pages, great binding, really excellent. BUT I didn’t get the petite journal and on Christmas Day (Christmas Day!!!) I sent an e-mail and within 3 hours, Sonja sends an e-mail apologizing and confirming shipment. Christmas Day! Well done! Turned a little bit of crabby into a huge fan. Thank you so much!
It was a Christmas gift for my youngest daughter...she loved it!
This was a gift for my wife for her birthday.
Awesome customer service and product
These were purchased for gifts. I haven’t opened but they are large well made books. They were delivered quickly. I can’t wait to start exploring with my granddaughter.
Its a Christmas present & I absolutely love it!! He will too! ❤
The customer service is absolutely amazing!!
Fab for a young couple learning the state!
The book is nicely done but I wish that every park had an address so that I would know where to look for them. And I'd like to see a few pictures of each park.
Perfect way to check out the parks! I am super excited, and have already been to 4 of the parks in my book. I love it!!
