One of my favorites

We stayed 7 nights in site # B37 we had water & electric & were one site off of the path to the beach. The park is big & was busy but not noisy. We did have some deer visit our site which is always a plus.  

The walk to the beach was up a hill in the sand and was challenging carrying chairs & a cooler but well worth it. What a nice view at the top of the hill. beautiful driftwood which was nice to set behind when it was windy. 

We kayaked from the boat ramp & went searching for clams which we got limit close to the park had a great day on the water went back to the camper & made clam chowder.

We also rented a little boat for $80.00 from Wheeler Marina and went crabbing for 3 hours. It came with 3 crab traps & bait for the traps. We drove the boat over close to the campground & dropped the traps in. Don't wait longer then 15 minutes to pull them up they had 30 to 40 crabs every pull. We got 8 Dungeness crab keepers which paid for the boat. They will cook them for you which is nice. What a great day. There is the Jetty fishery too which rent's boats & sells good fresh seafood we got clams there & cooked them on the grill. 

There was a place to do laundry up the street so we broke down & did laundry. We were on a 3 month long trip.

You could have a bonfire on the beach, there was a group with Guitars, coolers, chairs & wood heading to the beach for a good time. 

Our neighbors said it was their 10th year staying there they are from Washington State.
