  • Wasn't sure what to expect driving in at night, but our morning hike told a great story. Hope to come come back to do some plein air painting.  more »
  • Salt Creek Recreational Area offers lovely views of the Straits of Juan d'Fuca and British Columbia. The tide pools are spectacular but not to be enjoyed by children without supervision. Walking & hik...  more »
  • Went to go tide pooling but they were not very impressive. Pretty park to hike around and would be really nice to camp at. The campsites were very nice and the hosts were as well.  more »

  • This was our first time out to Salt Creek and it will certainly not be our last! My kids, 4 and 6 years old, loved being able to see high tide and low tide. Exploring at low tide was an exciting time of finding crabs, muscles, anemones, birds, and of course playing in the sandy beach. Climbing the rocks and the sea stack in the middle was also a highlight. Only started to lightly drizzle as we were leaving. The camp ground has a playground and showers available, I really liked that they had the high\low tide on a sheet by the stairs, so we knew when to plan for low tide. Internet service was spotty, half the time it thought we were in Canada. We'll be back and plan to spend longer next summer!
  • So beautiful! There is literally a creek that runs into the ocean. It has a nice beach and huge rock formations also.
  • If you haven't visited this park then your really missing out on a treasure. Just a short 20 min drive from PA and the beach is sandy. Also a great kids swimming hole with knee deep water really fun. No pass required it's a county park.
  • Amazing spot make sure you use the free public owned parking though. This area is amazing and you must also check out Bunker Hill which is right there next to the parking lot.
  • Nice place to bring kids as they can play in the sand and walk in the ocean. When the water level is at its lowest the sand can be a little bit wet so a chair is to prefer. It can be a bit windy so bring some extra clothes just in case
