  • Love the park, so much history to be seen. Great trails and nice beachfront. Nice place for an afternoon. Camping spots are also very nice.
  • Its a great place to go for an easy walk in nature. It has a slight variance in hiking trails. Theres some that take you up and through the hills and easier ones along the coast with views of the ferry and surrounding areas. During the week there is less people so its ideal for walks with shy dogs, or go for a quiet place to write or play guitar. I recommend visiting here its a hidden gem.
  • It's a beautiful State Park, with a nice beach for exploring tidepools. And there is now a place to rent kayaks too!
  • Great views and hiking. Love to watch the ferry crossing and on a clear day, you can see Mt. Rainier.
  • Nice place for a wedding in the pavilion. Beautiful views!
