The visitor center being closed was disappointing. The fact that half the campground was closed thus forcing campers to be crowded and pay for spots with full service was awful. $35 a night spots were the only ones open.
Also I couldn't get any cell service.
We really loved the forest setting of this park. There are great hammock trees at nearly every site. Overall, it's beautiful. The bathrooms were just ok. There's only 1 shower per bathroom, and you have to pay to make it work. One night, the meter in the men's shower was broken, so I had to take…

Great Owner's! Clean, spacious and peaceful. 😊
This was our first time at Penrose Point State Park. We are so fortunate to have so many State parks along the beaches of the Sound. Penrose Point is located across Carr Inlet from Gig Harbor and Fox Island. There are trails and beaches to explore. Lovely large campsites. No hookups available but…
This is a beautiful spot! I was recently needing a place to camp outside of Olympia on a roadtrip. It’s about 10 minutes from I-5 so perfect for a one night stop, not sure if I’d want to stay there for more than that. The campsite had very little privacy and unfortunately everyone was woken up by a…
Spent three nights at Seaquest with the grandkids. Great playground with a cool dirt pile to play on. Nice easy walk through the tunnel to the wetlands. Convenient place for day drives to Ape Cave and Johnston Ridge. Clean restrooms. Well spaced sites.
Stayed here as part of a 20-person group. Great spot for meeting between Portland and Seattle! Only 20 minutes off the freeway but you feel way out in the country. The only downside is the road noise nearby. People zooming by on the country road. Outside of that, it’s a beautiful spot. Dogs played…
Plenty of sites along the river with multiple ingress/egress options from the road. Right outside the entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park and the access road to Crystal Mountain.
4x4 / high clearance vehicles recommended - saw some subarus trying to navigate into a cleared area and it was…
The campsites here were pretty spacious. With the road coming to a dead end, you simply find a place to park and carry your stuff to one of numerous sites (I think there were 8-10), with other spots where you could easily pitch a tent. The ground was soft, with the occasional root, and heavy tree…
Sites are roomy. Lots of walking and biking trails. Fishing and swimming areas. Concessions and rentals at the beach. Great staff too.
100+ sites. $5/night. Can always find a spot. Dry camp only. 3 pit toilets spread out across the area. Can get a little loud depending on your neighbors. I avoid the big holidays.
This is a great rustic campground for horse camping and family oriented. Sites are nice sized, it’s generally peaceful under the large fir trees with just enough canopy to provide shade and for the wood corrals. Trails are in abundance and usually maintained by volunteers and USFS. There is stock…
We had a great spot by big open space. Pull through but spaces pretty close together. Kids fished. Trails down to water.

Big open park space for kids to play. Hiking along falls is fun. Swimming in hot weather would be great. It was COLD in June. Sites are nice.
