  • We rented a small cabin. It's supposed to fit up to 5 people but really it is far more adequate for 2-3 people and mostly just for sleeping. Tiny cabin and the kitchenette is only a microwave and micr...  read more »
  • We had spot 6 reserved but drove out to check out the campground before actually towing our camper out. SO glad we did. I have photos and if what are you are looking for is a party grounds where your table is right next to the sewer line of the camper next to you, this is your place. If you want to be out 'camping' and get some peace and quiet NO GO. The spots are right next to each other NOTHING between your spot and those on the right and left except power, sewer and water. Now spot 18 isn't bad and Spot 39 (camp host) is EXCELLENT. AND if you wanted to tent camp they have beautiful spots. The park is great, the beach is rocky and pretty.
  • Great campground for families! Nice playground, easy beach access. The beach is mostly rocks, but the kids had a great time looking for crabs.
  • Very nice state park! Great views and a gray place to watch the sunset!
  • The park was great, the rangers not so much... On 8/14/15 I called the 888-campout phone line asking about our sites. I stated that we were supposed to check into our sites that day but due to the thunder and rain storm, we would not be able to until the next morning. The person I talked to said that this would be OK as long as we checked in before the next day's check in time, so we didn't loose our sites. We arrived at 11:30 am and set up our sites. While checking into the site, my friend and fellow foster parent was yelled at by two park rangers. One park Ranger had initials of E.D. and the other we didn't see again. They said that she could not check in until 2:30. She tried to explain that the site was ours starting the day before. She was told that they get the sites for free and can't ever seem to go by the rules. I was at the park with some of the children since I had already set up. One of the kids came and told me that she was getting in trouble and I came to talk to him and check in as well. He no longer was at the site, but I found him at the little office. I told him who I was and tried to show him my ID and foster care card. He said "oh, you're another on of "those" people". I said, "I am sorry, but what?" He said that we were foster parents and needed to go by the rules and check in when everyone else did. I told him that our names where on the sites an they were ours as of yesterday. He said something along the lines of.. see all those cars wanting to check in? I am getting call after call wanting to know whey they can't check in. I said that this wasn't my issue and these where our sites starting yesterday and that I had called in and let them know that we weren't coming in until today. I said that if he had an issue to call the main office and talk with someone about what the check in site rules are. He didn't talk to us the remainder of the time, but I feel that he should be talked to about his issues with foster parents and to make sure that a camper is or isn't setting up before the correct time. I have camped for several years and all over Washington State. We have never been treated this way. This 'benefit' of taking our foster children on family outings is one of the only benefits we receive as foster parents and one of the only ways to take this many children on a vacation.
  • This place is beautiful and has a perfect area for weddings!
