    This is one of the ugliest camp grounds I have ever seen. The camp spots are pretty wide open and it feels more like you are camping in someone's field than you are actually in the woods. The ranger s...  more »

    We stayed in June 2017 in a full hook up RV site. The campground was clean and everyone was friendly. There was easy access to walk to the clamming beach and to hike through the woods. Lots of space f...  more »

    This is a gorgeous park that is clearly well loved and cared for by the park staff. It has changed quite a bit over the past two or so years and so much for the better. There are tent sites, RV sites, and several new little cabins to choose from. There are wooded areas, open grassy areas, a river running through, and the Hood Canal. You'll also find plenty of little trails leading you on adventures. The area is primarily flat and easy to stroll through with some of the trails providing a little bit more of a rough experience. Best of all? The bathrooms are always clean!

    Excellent place to spend the weekend with family & friends. You can pickup you shellfish license from the gas station just north of the state park and harvest your dinner right off the beach! The campsites are sufficient. I would have liked more space and foliage between sites since the sound of speakers several campsites away carries pretty far at night. There is an area with cabins that looks like it would be a lot of fun with out of town guests who have not brought camping gear but still want the PNW experience.

    We stayed two nights during the week and had a great time! We were right on the bank of the river and had a great view of the eagle nest directly across the river from our campsite were even visited by three raccoons late in the evening. Luckily we knew this was possible and had all of our food locked up. The park is well maintained. Restrooms are clean. Park rangers, maintenance personnel and park managers are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be returning!

    LOVE this park! First visit was so super rainy I thought it might be a bad weekend but not so. Cabins are fantastic, RVs aren't intrusive, and tent camping is well removed. And dogs are allowed. This is my new favorite off-season weekend cabin rental!

    We stayed here Friday to Sunday over a rainy winter weekend. We stayed in a one room cabin and loved it! The cabin itself was clean and SO cute! There was a covered porch out front with two adirondack chairs and a table that we put our stove on. When we arrived late at night, the porch light was on and the heat was on so it was cozy right away. We went hiking on Saturday and when we got back midday, there were 40-50 elk in the campground. We were told that they're there about every three weeks at this time of year so we felt lucky to get to see them. It was really fun to watch them eating and hanging out from in the cabin (we did have to wait awhile for them to wander away from our front door before going inside but a staff member was helpful and chatted with us about the herd while we waited). There was no one staying near us on Friday night but the cabins in our area were full on Saturday night. We didn't hear much noise from our neighbors though. Also, we were pretty close to the highway but the noise didn't bother us at all. We could only hear it when the occasional big truck drove by. As far as other amenities go, there is not a fridge in the cabin but there is electricity and outlets in the cabin, running water on the property, and clean bathrooms.
