  • Been here a few times, the kids love it! Really fun during the tide coming in to watch them "escaping it".  more »
  • Nice trail for hiking/biking leading uphill into mature woods. Popular campground, nice picnic areas and popular beach on summer days.  more »
  • I’ve been going to this park since I was a little girl. My children and grandson love it. Great place for a picnic, hike, nice walk or to beach comb.  more »

  • Very nice park for camping, and beach combing. The camp ground is nice and clean. The beach is superb when the tide is out, you can walk nearly a mile out into the sound and walk to Dash point beach to the South. You can check the State park website for camp ground availability and costs. Enjoy!
  • Small beach area with picnic tables. Best to go when it’s low tide, as you can wander out a bit. Lots of short trails that can be challenging for the beginner as they go up the ravines, but generally well marked. Does require a Washington State Parks Discovery Pass or 10 dollar fee to enter.
  • Wonderful walking/biking trails. I spend hours at a time wandering around in these woods with my dog. I'd do it every day if I could. The campground is basic, but nice and well maintained. They have a few cabins that can be rented for a reasonable price. You can hike the trails to the beach, or drive across the street and park in the lot.
  • Great dog friendly spot for camping, we had a party of 8 but still found it spacious enough. Also, the beach nearby is a nice walk, usually with plenty of people digging for oysters.
  • Beautiful view of the water from the beach. Nice hiking with lush, green scenery. You can access picnic areas, trails, and the beach all from one parking lot. I definitely recommend stopping by for a quick visit if you're near the area.
