  • 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.
  • Beautiful spot to spend the day or night. We didn't use the campsite, just spent the afternoon. There's a swimming area and plenty of beach, and a tide pool that doubles as a wonderful wading pool for little ones. Multiple bathrooms are accessible and there's a concession stand, although it was closed while we were there. Lots of shade, lots of sun, lots of grills and picnic tables. There's even a couple of swing sets. In all, a great place to take the family for the day!
  • Could use a better park for kids 2 and up also fix the beach it was so filled with shells that it cut up my feet and the bench's are or dated I wish for the nice bench's made from recycled material
  • Small park with accessible hiking trails. Only takes a couple hours to hike the whole loop, but still feels like your off in the woods.
  • Love the hiking trails. Very nice place to be outdoors with family and friends.
