  • I went there with family as part of a very large group. I had some idea before hand that this campground was a military setup during early 20th century and used to guard entry in Puget sound. During o...  read more »
  • This site is really great. We stayed at campsite 69 and it was awesome falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean. The campgrounds are very well maintained and patrolled well too so no hooligans can mess around. The people that stay there are very respectful and a pleasure to be around and generally happy campers, pun intended. The forts themselves are well maintained as well. In the morning, lots of deer and they're little ones can be seen. I highly recommend this campground to camp at. But make your reservations early, they fill up fast, understandably.
  • Stayed at the Wagon Wheel group camp area with friends in June 2015. Liked it so much we're going back next month. Most of us were in tents, with one teardrop trailer in the mix. There was water and two latrines for this area, and the parade ground next door drew deer at dusk.The covered cooking/eating area was our gathering spot (plus the nearby campfire pit, of course). Some of us went clamming outside the park so we had fresh shellfish for dinner. Enjoyed hiking the trails and seeing the gun emplacements. This time I'm going to take the tour of the old hospital. The regular campsites right on the shore looked nice (not a lot of privacy, but some), and I think they had showers as well as flush toilets (check the website on that). Several well-behaved dogs, too.
  • Fun and spooky. You can hike all over and find old bunker with huge steel doors. We played the scariest game of hide and go seek ever. The beach is great with bits of sandy areas and driftwood for fort building everywhere. Campsites are clean and fairly private in the forest.
  • This is a great but small campground right on the bay. It is in two sections and the lower section is big rig accessible. The upper section is more for smaller units and tents and is set back in the trees on the bluff. This park gets a lot of activity in the summer and is really great for families because it is mostly very level with lots of facilities and trails to keep everyone as busy as they would like to be.
  • We have been coming here for 20+ years for a whole family camping/crabbing trip. Always a great time, great food and I can't wait for another 20 years at Ft. Flagler!!!
