  • We visited our daughter and son in law in Poulsbo and they recommended this park for camping ⛺️. It was a great place to camp. All the sites were very secluded and private. Firewood was reasonably pri...  more »

  • Found a spot here for a last-minute RV camping spot. The spots are very tight - very close to one another. The on-site rental cabins look like a much better experience. The bathrooms are individual rooms, and clean enough. The park itself has a decent sized playground, and access to the beach. The site is close driving distance to a number of good places to eat. We had a lot of fun just heading down to Liberty Bay Waterfront Park to grab dinner and play in the park. The Central Market (grocery store), is very big.
  • The park is not bad. If you want a walk on level ground that is easy to conquer this might be the right fit for you. There is an excellent children's play lot with lots of obstacles for them to climb all over. There is beach access very near the tot lot. There is a large grass area that is flexible. They have an enormous hall that can be reserved that has a water view, and another structure which is open with an ocean view. There are campsites, and a small cabin that can be reserved for short visits. When I was there there were two reasons why I do not give it a better score; there was construction work being conducted on two sides which I am sure could not be avoided. But the. Other reason could certainly be avoided! At 3:50 PM the ranger on duty began to yell in an unseemly way that everyone needed to get out because he was locking up. I imagine the residents in homes nearby could do without him.
  • This a great park with rv parking, cabins, plenty of open space and beach access. Plenty of parking as well as a nice tent camping area. Too many other amenities to list but this is a great Washington park.
  • Nice quite (this time of year) seemed to be some people living there. If you go you want space 18 it's the best and largest
  • Warning: late check-in policy for cabins is different than other parks! Was locked out of cabin, no host or ranger on site. Cabin did not have kitchenette as advertised. Rented a cabin and arrived later in the evening due to some delays. Was locked out of the cabin. Every other park either leaves the key code in small mailbox by the door or leaves the door unlocked and keys inside the cabin - I've been to most cabins in the state park system and they've all had the same system. Camp host was absent (despite incorrect signage at entrance kiosk that led us to knock on some camper's RV who were not camp hosts). No camp ranger on site either. Had to grab a hotel at considerable expense and didn't get to room until near midnight. Cabin was also advertised as having a kitchenette. From what I could see through the window, the "kitchenette" was simply a mini-fridge with a microwave on it, not cupboards and a sink like other cabins advertised as having kitchenettes have.
