  • awesome! have used launch here before. can't wait to come back. sweet campground as well
  • A beautiful little park on the Hood Canal. The park rangers were very nice, campsites are generously sized, and the bathrooms are kept nicely clean. Showers are token-based and limited availability but nice and hot. In fall you can see chum salmon swimming upstream to spawn, which is amazing, and there is a little hike of about 2.5 miles through the park that is quite beautiful in fall.
  • It's a really easy way to get out of town and enjoy a little bit of the pacific northwest, with a salmon creek, a scenic shoreline, a dock, and a hiking trail.
  • Pretty wooded, shady park near Hood canal, campground looks nice,smallish state park,but very pleasant,good for summer weekend camping. Close to small town of Union, WA,gas,stores nearby
  • Nice quiet park. Awesome hiking trail. Beach access.
