Craving a misty morning walk on a lake? Planning a campout with family and friends? Look no further than Lake Easton State Park!

Located between Seattle and Ellensburg off I-90, Lake Easton is a magnet for urbanites who have limited time for escapes. The park is also far enough east to (sometimes) see sun when Seattle is shrouded in gray.

Activity is the name of the game at Lake Easton, so bring your bikes, kayaks, paddleboards, fishing poles, swimsuits and hiking boots. Engineered to be child-friendly, the playground is a short sprint from the swim beach, so the kids will run back and forth all day. And don't forget that camp chair for lounging, reading and chatting in one of the park's wooded campgrounds or picnic areas.

This park does not shut down in winter. Though snow covers the closed campgrounds, a day at the lake is worth bundling up for. Cross-country skiers, snowmobilers and dogsledders use miles of groomed trails, and families throw snowballs and build snow structures to their hearts' content. West-siders may find blue skies at Lake Easton even in the darkest months of the year.

So, go jump in the lake, or don your skis for a glide through a wintry forest. Even if you're not far from home, you'll take note as stress yields to fun.
