  • Tolmie State Park is best visited during low tide. You will be able to see several different sea creatures at that time.  more »
  • This park is close to my home so I enjoy it several times a year. I enjoy the scenery of the Sound from the wonderful beach. I hope you enjoy it also.  more »
  • This time of year it is a good walking beach with birds, shells, and a brisk wind. The trails run along the beach and back into the surrounding woods. This is a lovely spot to enjoy the water and the ...  more »

  • Beautiful view of the South Sound on a sandy beach reached by crossing a wooden bridge from the parking lot (be sure to bring your Discover Pass). Picnic shelter for rentals. Nice trail - 1.5 mile through forested area. Some steeper/narrow parts of path might be slippery in wet weather and hard for small children.
  • The review below by Redneck Dodd is a work of fiction. The author is a bail bondsman that entered the campground without authorization and proceeded to interrogate and harass campers in their pursuit of someone that wasn't there. After being escorted off the property, the Thurston Country Sheriff told them to stay away and to conduct their business lawfully. The campground is private property. Any business conducted at the campground must be authorized in advance by the owners. If you would like to hear the full story, check-in is 1pm - 8pm and mediocre coffee is available all day.
  • As web site says but reviews contradict no pull thru have fire pits. Bathroom often stopped up and floors muddy. No mats in showers so plan on very wet feet. One weak air dryer and no towels. Lots of hot water. Trash stuffed to more than overflowing. Sites very uneven grass, gravel and ruts. Quiet. Easy access to fwy etc.
  • Tolmie is great. We moved to Washington from Dallas, TX, where it cost lots of money to do anything. It's sad to read complaints from people who don't want to pay $10 (or $30 for a year pass to ALL state parks) to go to a clean and beautiful beach with hiking trails and bathroom facilities. WHAT A STEAL!! You can bring a tent and cook out equipment and spend the whole day. And yes the hours are fairly restrictive, but thats how it is able to stay so clean and safe and we'll maintained and for such an inexpensive amount.
  • Hiking and beach are fun. The kids enjoyed it. It sprawls out a bit.
