I love this place! Camping right at the water or off in the woods. Lots of biking and hiking. A small bar is on site with good food, craft beers, and cocktails. A pier into the sound. Crabbing, bouy anchors. Fort and battery tours. a real gem in Washington.
Beautiful views all around! History galore! Nature and trails! Clean areas! Great atmosphere!
We camped near the beach at this park. It was beautiful. However, it's sites are not very private. Restrooms are available. There is another campground at this park as well as houses available to rent. The fort is very fun to explore as are the grounds in general. The whole area is very bicycle friendly. We were with a large group of cyclists.
Our first time at this state park camping. We picked the forest camping because of the trees for our hammocks. Lots of room at our site 79 for camper and truck. Also the fire pit was far enough away from everything no worries of embers on hammocks or camper. The showers were hot but low pressure. It only took two tokens for a quality shower. The only draw back to the camp site was no sewer hook. We enjoyed walking on the beach and hiking around the park to all the Geocache’s. Great food at the guardhouse and the staff is super friendly . There is so much to do at this state park from the museum, bunkers to explore and just relaxing. Kids of all ages should do the Junior Ranger program which the Gift Shop has the packets.
For Worden, an unconventional camping spot, but worth the views and history that surrounds you.
Explore all of the Forts Outbuildings which make a great outlet for the kids to play hide and seek or flashlight tag. Take in the sights of the Antique Lighthouse as you make s’mores on the Beach Firepits.
Among all of the sights and fun that come with camping at Fort Worden there are also plenty of museums and a Marine Science Center for hands-on learning fun for the whole family.
Whether you are into RV camping, day camping, or tent camping, Fort Worden should be on your list!
Fort Worden has been a family favorite since I was a kid and it's awesome now bringing my own kids to camp here. We usually stay in the beach sotes, we love how spacious they are.
We went to Fort Worden for a little ghost hunting in the bunkers. Stayed in the lovely beach loop and enjoyed beach walks, bunker exploring and cozy campfires! Beautiful Officers Quarters, buildings, bunkers, and views here. The movie An Officer and a Gentleman was filmed here.
Perfect spot to enjoy the Fort and lovely beach. Super dog friendly. Free showers
Hang out at the beach or explore the seemingly endless bunkers with amazing views, this place was fantastic with a family. Paved trails are great for little bike riders.
Campsites were average but fairly spacious. What the camp sites lacked the views, bike trails, location and great town of Port Townsend made up for. We are definitely going back!
Best spots are 40-50.
Lots of fun to walk around and check out the bunkers in the woods and along the beach. Campsites are very nice-with a bathroom in the vacinity.
Not for someone looking for harder hiking or spectacular views from up high.
