  • Our hiking club traversed the trails throughout the park—along the beach, up and down hills, and through the forest. Rich plant life and well marked trails enable hikers to stay on course. Ruins of th...  more »
  • Great hiking and picnicking. Go into the forest as well as the waterside area. Relaxing. Can’t speak for camping as we were on a road trip. The closest we came to camping was the Hampton Inn. Our days...  more »
  • This was a great place to stay with some 23 family members. We rented all 4 sections of the Brick for 3 days. This consisted of 16 rooms, mostly with double beds. There was one bathroom, 4 bedrooms, a...  more »

  • Beautiful forest park on the water. Camping in summer. Clean and well kept grounds. Requires "Discover Pass"
  • This is a great gem near Port Townsend. Much quieter and smaller than the larger Fort Warden state park. Arrived on a Tuesday to a nice pull through site. Checked in with a guy at a little white building at the end of the road. Full bathroom facilities and shower. Sites are relatively close together and good for tent camping or small trailers, anything over 15' would be tough to navigate the loop. The site has a bunch of hiking trails that take you down to the beach which is convenient. Beautiful getaway that's not too far from civilization but certainly feels like it!
  • A peaceful small state park. Tent camping spots are in a wooded area and RV spots are more exposed. Enjoyed our time there with the exception of the odd music playing in the bathrooms, which was pretty eerie. If you want a park with lots to do you are better off to head to Fort Worden probably. But if you want to relax in peace and quiet, this is a great place. The tent camping spots are much more shaded and most more private than the spots at Fort Worden, which are jammed in there.
  • Very quiet and next to the water. We stayed at the dry camp RV site which are nice, buy very close together. The hiking trails around the park are very nice and a great way to start the day. We did about 2.5 miles that goes through very nice woods around the park.
  • Site 22 was nice and private and there was woods behind it. The campground was quiet and the RVs were separated from the tents so we couldn't hear their generators going. Very pleasant
