Washington State

Washington State is blessed with a number of marine state parks maintained at taxpayer expense.  Most have limited dock space, but during the off months, one can usually dock space if inclined.
 
In addition, because of the number of Islands and Puget Sound there are many small to medium sized towns with generally very good marinas that can be visited.
