  • The staff at the park were excellent, friendly, and accommodating of us both wanting to switch sites (crying baby near the first one) and come back after the gates closed (drive-in theater!) The tent ...  more »
  • Walked 3 miles from son's house to get here. Small park with numerous short trails. Saw a raccoon while strolling around and did a few trails. Very nice place to relax . Loved the old tree from the 16...  more »
  • This camp ground was decent but very shady. Too many homeless camping in the park. Plus, the Park Rangers in the camp area need to make sure they are on the same page with the rules. Its kind of hard ...  more »

  • It’s an alright park. Needs to be updated. There are a few short trials that just loop around the center of the park. Playground needs new equipment. If you plan on going to the beach, don’t go at high tide, lol it won’t be there! Other than that, it’s not a bad place. Didn’t get to check out the camping situation, but it looked pretty tightly packed with not a lot of room between campsites. Good place for a picnic or short walk though
  • Beautiful park. Go down to the dock and watch sea lions and seals and enjoy the view. Go at low tide so there is beach to walk on. I'd give it 5 stars except as a full time RV-r, I have to say it is VERY unlikely you will find one of the only two full hookup sites available during the season where you cannot make reservations (fall to spring). The only two sites are usually occupied by run down RVs who maximize time they stay, then move to other parks or an open simple campsite for a few days and then move back in to the full hookup sites. I don't have anything against people who live how they have to. Just be aware you likely won't get hookups at this site unless you make reservations during the peak seasons. There are a few other sites within an hour or less where you can find hookups at other state parks. If I owned a boat, this is a park I'd add to the list to moor at. A great place to walk the dogs and if I had time, I'd love to try for a salmon or cutthroat or steelhead from the dock or shore. Be sure to have your annual access park pass and appropriate licenses for shellfish or fishing! BEAUTIFUL IN THE FALL with the changing maple leaves. Heavily treed park with some older large timber. Have good brakes on your car or RV! quite a few steep hills and careful driving through the camping area. It's a little tight.
  • Very neat little park -- stayed 2 nights. Easily drivable from Seattle/Tacoma. Sites were nice and well kept, very cheap. Washington does something neat with some kind of park pass, but since I was only going to be in Washington for a week, I didn't partake. No power at the tent sites, I believe only 2 powered sites and reserved for RV types. Ample water access via multiple spigots throughout the camp grounds. I had one right across from my site. Cool beach/water access and clam/oystering was allowed. Bath houses were clean. Required tokens for the showers that you get from a vending machine (like an arcade), so bring some singles. I bought too many tokens, so I gave some back to the rangers and kept one as a souvenir. Rangers were very helpful and friendly. Just could have done with a couple of additional signs about where was where. Ended up doing a loop through several times.
  • The water views are nice I ended going while the tide was in. I would go again but I recommend you check tide charts to maximize your adventure time. There are loaner life vest and pet clean up stations. A discover pass is required for extended stays but their are 15 minute no fee parking avaible in some areas.
  • Went just to check it out, and found one ranger to be exceptionally helpful. She explained which passes were available, prices for camping, advised of the availability of showers, bathrooms, camping spots, and access to the Narrows. Went back a few days later and was offered a pamphlet with the same exuberance. Finally paid for the pass I needed, and I go quite often for the peace and quiet. Tranquility and relaxing all around!!! Only 4 stars due to the mens shower (according to my husband) wasn't accepting the shower tokens. Sold 2 for $1. And only 3 minutes of hot water per token. Then immediately it turns a SHOCKING ICE COLD!!
