Yes, that was us. We had expected that mid week after labour day Fort Casey State Park would not be full, but when we checked reservations about a week ago there was only one 4 day slot open, so we grabbed it. Lots of fisherman there at this time of year. Fort Casey is a good spot for exploring Whidbey Island and Port Townsend. There are few hookups, but this is of little concern if you have a solar panel as we do. In contrast, Deception Pass State Park had lots of available spots, but it is not as well suited for seeing the island. The nice thing about the state parks in northern Washington is that it does not take long to get there from Vancouver and there are lots of services and shopping available. We have been to Bay View, Deception Pass, Fort Ebey, Fort Casey and they are all good state parks. We have Nexus passes, US credit cards, US cell phone, so an easy move for us to go there.
