Submit a Northwest Park Review, Get a $10 Amazon Gift Card

park review

There are so many awesome parks around the Northwest and we’d love to hear from you about your favorite parks so we can share with everyone all that the Northwest has to offer.

We are specifically looking for parks in Washington & Oregon, but also would be open to reviews for parks in Idaho & British Columbia, too, as we know all of you love to travel around the great Pacific Northwest!

If we publish your Park Review, we will email you a $10 Amazon Gift Card within 2 weeks. There is no limit on how many park reviews you can submit, so it might be a nice way to earn some Amazon Gift Cards! We know you all love Amazon! :)

You can find parks that we already have reviews on on our Park Reviews Page here.

Keep in Mind:

  • Please do not copy/paste any info from a park or other website, but share the information about the park in your own words. The more details, the better so that we can all learn more about the park.
  • We need at least 2 good quality pictures, but if you have 3-4 pictures or more of  various aspects of the park even better! We’d love to have good, quality pictures that give readers an idea of what the park is like.
  • Pictures need to be taken by you or a friend/family member (with their permission) & not taken from other websites.
  • We ask that the main image of the park  not include any close-ups of people or family members if possible (if it’s a busy day at the park, we realize there will be people in the picture).
  • Other pictures can include your family members if needed; we just ask that you not include close-up pictures of people if you do not have permission to use their picture (far away pictures are ok).
  • We will not be able to use every park review submitted, but if we do use your review, we will email you a $10 Amazon Gift Card within 2 weeks. 
  • We reserve the right to make changes to the review and bio as necessary to shorten, add / take out information, etc.
  • Once you submit the form, you are giving your consent for all the information & pictures you submit to belong to Thrifty Northwest Mom to be used on our website & social media sites.
