  • This park can be very deceiving in size. Not only is the park located on Puget Sound but there are many hiking trails that achieve higher elevations. it has camping, picnicking and beaches. 
  • The campground at Dash Point State Park is surprisingly good, considering how close it is to Seattle and Tacoma. In particular, the 'standard' (no hookups) sites are reasonably private and quiet. The ...  read more »
  • My wife and I went here to hike some of the trails with our dog. They are allowed as long as they are on a leash, which we always do to make sure our dog is safe and not bothering others. Less than a ...  read more »
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Great location to experience the Puget Sound. Dogs are allowed! Place offers Fairly Good parking with a short and easy walk to the beach area. Once on the beach, if you go during low tide, you can leisurely walk 45~60+ minutes in either direction along the coast! Pay attention to the incoming tides though, they can cut off your beach access in a couple of spots! Great place to take the Dog(s) - YES, dogs are allowed!
  • We have stayed here many times we are there now We have kids that live in federal way so it is super convenient to them We have stayed in our Rv and they have full hookups even 50amps We usually stay in site 49 48 or 50 We have a 37 ft phateon with 4 slides and have no issues getting in Yes it's close to the city and busy roads but there are not very many Rv resorts in this area I would recommend staying here
