Saint Edward State Park is a day-use park with 3,000 feet of freshwater shoreline on Lake Washington. The Late Romanesque Revival style seminary building, designed by Seattle architect John Graham, sits amid expansive park grounds that include a stand of forest with hiking trails to the shores of the lake.
The Altair Campground at Olympic National Park will remain closed through July 31.
Contractors are using a series of controlled blasts to lower the Glines Canyon Dam this month, necessitating a safety-related closure of the campground. The controlled blasting results in a sudden water release larger than the hydraulic hammer previously used to remove the dam.
