The interesting thing is that they charge the non-resident fee if you book online but don't charge it if you just show up at the park as a "first come first served" camper.
I won't camp at the Washington State Parks anymore unless I can get a non hookup site, thank goodness for the solar panel. We had a site at Fort Casey that we loved and usually camped at every April. As of April 1st this year it went from $23 per night to $38 per night (elec. and water only, no sewer and no dump station on site) with a premium if you used it on the weekend ......... we now use a non hookup site when we are there as they only went up $1.
I'm thinking that the large motorhomes and trailers are somewhat to blame as they are running tons electric goodies and are using the full 30 amps just about 24/7. Recently at Fort Casey I saw a guy at at electric site who had a generator running as well as being hooked up; how he had the electrics set up was beyond me but he obviously need more then the 30 amps. that was provided on site!!
