Does your idea of an outdoor adventure involve transit? While not all camping parks in the Seattle area are accessible by public transportation, there are a few campgrounds reachable by bus, with trip times ranging from just 30 minutes to four hours from downtown Seattle.
Of course, add in Amtrak or Greyhound, and the possibilities expand even further, factoring in farther-away locales like Leavenworth or Ellensburg. But for purposes of this map, we stuck west of the Cascades, with destinations on the Kitsap peninsula, in south King County, and even within the Seattle city limits. In some of these parks, the transit directions even work on the weekends. Just remember to pack light!
From Illahee State Park in Bremerton to Dash Point State Park in Federal Way, here’s a collection of state and city campgrounds and cabin rentals accessible by King County Metro, Sound Transit, Mason County Transit, Community Transit, Clallam Transit, and Kitsap County Transit.
