In the morning, when the low tide is out, it is digging time. Clam digging for some, and the rest just dig for fun. The beach stretches out and you have plenty of room. As the day gets warmer people c... more »

A wonderful place to wile away a few hours, or a couple days. Walking out across the beach at low tide here is amazing. It goes on and on seemingly forever. The trails around the park a varied and man... more »

This park is obviously very old and is rundown. The bathrooms, in the RV area, at least the ladies, is beautiful. It looks like it's just been remodeled. You need tokens to take a shower and it's $.50... more »

What a great find!! $10 tent camping tucked away in a cute little town just outside of the city?! Can't beat that, especially compared to outrageous hotel prices! Lots of sites, many separated by bushes and foliage to create privacy. Pulled in late on a Saturday night with no reservations, plenty of sites still available. Clean bathrooms and sinks for doing dishes, coin operated showers that we didn't see or use. Very family friendly, lots of kids running around...even some babies crying into the night, which didn't bother us night owls sitting by the fire. Many trails that will even take you to a 7/11 or a java hut for coffee. Fire wood for sale until around 8pm. Didn't get to check out the beach, but nice that it's an option. Someone said lots of bugs...we stayed the second week of June and didn't seem to notice many. Overall, no real complaints! Would stay here again given the opportunity!!

Most campsites are decent with some more roomy than others. Bathrooms super clean. Price per night is outrageous but I guess it's a state park. Washington is just so much more expensive than Oregon. Beach is nice in the summer at low tide. Many trails throughout great for an easy afternoon hike.

Dash Point is a great little state park and offers an expansive trail system and a beach with parking, as well as campsite lots. Parking is free on certain days throughout the year, and purchasing a Discover pass gets you in any state park for a year for only 30 or so dollars. If you plan on visiting the beach, ALWAYS check tide charts online. During peak low tides the beach has an enourmous amount of tideland, stretching for hundreds of feet. However, during peak high tide, the beach only goes out about 10 feet. On a hot summer day, hundreds of people on 10 feet of beach just doesn't work.

A best kept secret of Washington. Fantastic if you want a quiet day at the beach. No crowds to deal with either and you can actually camp within walking distance.

Fun for the kids and adults. Been camping here since I was a little boy . It's a state park and good for the kiddos . The beach is a great place to play and have good family time. Requires a state parks pass or a ten dollar fee . HAVE A GREAT TIME ,I always have .
