  • Had a great time here. We stayed in the campground and visited the tidal area daily. Do look up the tides, go to the shore on low tide to see a beach of oyster shells and dig/search for live oysters/clams/crabs. A herd of about 50 elk graze here in the day. Evenings they go into the meadows at the entrance to the tidal area to look for apples falling from the trees. Campground was good. Have to buy tokens for showers. $0.50 for 3 minutes.
  • Awesome place, highly recommend. We loved it. It was clean and a lot of family fun. Rangers were doing their job at all times. We want to come back again.
  • Loved it. Clams and oysters galore on the wetlands side of the park. Gorgeous mountain and saltwater vistas. Elk and other wildlife occasionally come down to graze. The other side of the parking/picnic area has access to the beautiful Dosewallips river. It's fast in places but crystal clear and there are plenty of places for skipping rocks. Our family had a great trip. You need a Discovery Pass to park, but if you don't have one, theres a gas station right on the other side of the bridge that sells them by the day and year.
  • This campground was fabulous. They have cabins, platform tents & tent camping. And Elk. So be careful not to scare them. Think we'll keep to the cabins. Seems safer. Lol. But your in for a treat with being next to the river on one side and the hood canal, on the other side. Really spectacular.
  • The facilities are well maintained. The staff was very friendly. We enjoyed the hiking trail.
