  • This is such a beautiful place. It's great for bike camping, although only half of the sites have a fire pit. The others have those weird bbq stands. I had no trouble getting a spot. The views are gorgeous. The downfall is that it's very popular and can be loud. The biker hiker spots are far from the playground, but people will walk right between you and your tent. I was also wakened in the middle of the night by some late night partiers who pulled up in front of my spot, shined their headlights in my tent and played loud music at about 12:30am. I gave them a piece of my mind and they moved on.
  • The park is well kept and run by Bainbridge Island not Washington State Parks and Rec. Kids love the beach and we were allowed to have a campfire.
  • Very nice place, lots of great places to shop and eat! Walk down to see the boats or just set in the park.
  • Great views of the water and even beach front camping. Well kept sites and clean bathrooms. Make a reservation if you are looking for a weekend spot to camp.
  • Absolutely beautiful! The view from the beach is amazing. Lots of sea life in the water too.
