  • This campground is very nice. Only 38 sites open in fall season but if you are early enough it wasn’t a problem, when it got to full capacity they opened a additional area for single night stays. The ...  more »
  • Among the tall cedars, the tent was shaded on warm days. The restrooms were easy to access, other campers were quiet and friendly, all pets were on leashes, and it was quiet except for the sound of ki...  more »

  • Great place to walk with the family. There's a bike lane and paths to walk on. Speed limit is low and feel quite safe walking near the road at times. Many different types of rocks and shells to look for. Can easily spend a couple hours here. I recommend checking the tide schedule before you come so you're not disappointed if the tide's in.
  • Birch Bay State Park, is the most beautiful State Park in the northwest. The state park is well kept. There is plenty to do for the family. There are nice enough restaurants. There's a water park close by for summertime enjoyment. Children can play at the playground, adults can take long walks, young and old can stroll along the coastline, it's just one beautiful Park.
  • Nice place. Well taken care of. On the water, plenty of beach to walk. If you visit this park during the winter, good luck finding a garbage can. If you don't have a Park Pass, you will get a ticket. The Rangers are like that. A little over the top.
  • This is a fantastic camping park on the WA coast. The roads are closed to through traffic and there are multiple bike trails through the park. Most sites are large and several are fairly private. The bathrooms are kept very clean and well stocked. You need quarters for the showers though. They do have RV sites as well as tents. A kids dream for camping especially if they bring a bike.
  • Beautiful State Park nice beach with picnic tables or relax in a quiet, shady spot up on the hill and have a BBQ among the towering evergreens. A good place to go if you're young or old.
