  • We went right after a storm and a high tide. It was great. Very well kept park with lots of parking and lots to enjoy. In summer great place to take kids to pay in sand and wade.  more »

  • Great place to connect with nature. Great Trails for Biking, Hiking, walking. Covered Picnic Table available with reservation. Some tables and grassy area. Linked to campground. Only 10 minutes from grocery shopping. Get your parking pass AKA Discover Pass at Twin Lakes Fred Meyer.
  • We really liked camping here and enjoyed our trip. The campsites were so close that our neighbors stayed up until 3am, which kept *us* up, but that's camping, I guess ;) The hike to the beach was fantastic, and the beach was interesting, with lots of shells, seaweed and a little river inlet. The water was a bit too funky for us personally to let our 5 year olds go in though. But the Ranger presentation was fun, the grounds were clean and so were the facilities. Perfect for a first camping trip with kids. Fun.
  • What a wonderful surprise. We happened to be in the neighborhood and remembered this fabulous park. They have camping and day-use, including trails and beach access. Fabulous.
  • Great park with lots of parking. Our favorite part about Dash Point State Park is the beach. It's not easy to find a great beach in Washington State. Dash Point is unique in how the tide comes in. It's very shallow, so you can walk way out into the water! It's very different that most other water spots. Great for skim-boarding!
  • A great place for a nice sunset photo. The beach is great at low-tide. Fun stream for kids and ample parking if you get there early. Dogs are allowed and beautiful trails!
