    WA - Seattle - Good Places to Camp in Spring?

    I'm getting anxious to go camping, but all my experience in the greater Seattle area is in places that are still covered in snow.

    Does anyone know of good places that are warm enough this time of year but still feel isolated? Maybe the Hoh rain-forest? For comparison, I have been camping in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and in the mountains surrounding Leavenworth during the summer.

    Ideally it would be a place where the rain forecasts are accurate for at least a day or so (I know, they can't even predict rain in the city...)

    Coil would know better but look at some of the trails closer to the coast range.

    Yeah I figured the coast would be a good place to start, but I have no idea where to find a nice isolated spot.

    Taylor river /middle fork river by North Bend has some good spots to get away from the crowds. It's low enough the snow melts quickly. Green Water is also a supposed to be a good spot in the winter. But, I think it is well know so you will have to go off trail to be alone.
