Readers' picks: Best Washington state parks

To mark this year's 100th anniversary of Washington's state parks system, we asked readers to name best and worst state parks and share their photos. The response was resounding and sometimes passionate. Many have fond memories of family campouts and outings, and in the category of "Worst State Parks," the most common response was, basically, "There are no bad parks!" Click on circles to find picks for "best all-around," "best camping," and "most kid-friendly" parks. Many were chosen in multiple categories.

Starred parks got the most votes in a given category.
