Arrived around 9pm. Mostly quiet. Camped near someone with a generator and thought they’d shut it off at 10pm (quiet hours 7am-10pm). Well, they didn’t shut it off till we asked and then turned it back on at midnight. Impossible to sleep. Got up to use the restroom and someone had been smoking cigarettes in the bathroom: shit + cig smoke = super lame. The number Jefferson County instructs you to call in case of issues is only operable from 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday. Lower # campsites seem to have good morning sun.
As always, KOA park personnel are helpful and welcoming. This KOA appears to always be busy but there were plenty of spaces. We had made our 4-day long reservations a week in advance in mid-April. The site had an asphalt pad and grass, but was narrow. The power post was in good shape along with the water service. The sewer connection was topless but serviceable.
The welcome pamphlet has no rules on it but frequent campers should know the usual courtesies anyway. Our space was a pull through with 30-amps. We have a 35’ fifth-wheel and a Ram 3500 truck with an 8’ bed. The truck and trailer fit nicely. Unfortunately I didn’t park back in my space far enough to leave room for my unhitched truck and had to park with my wheels partially on the grass. We left the park for some activities and received a polite request to either park so we wouldn’t have our tires on the grass or use the overflow parking. Reminder received and corrected.
The location is excellent. Close enough or far enough to Seattle if you need to go there for some reason. I recommend avoiding the city of Seattle for any reason. The city council and mayor are doing their best to destroy this once beautiful and welcoming city.
This part is in Port Townsend which is a beautiful town. The park is on the ocean which is great for walking in the sand , it does mean however that the wind can be vicious in early spring. We were glad we were in a our small RV rather than tent camping. There are beautiful big homes for rent for groups.
We went here in October and dry camped with our 30’ Motorhome so not the typical experience others would have in a true RV site. I only took away a star because it was advertised as ok for a Motorhome but the gravel pull through was so not level the jacks pushed the front tires 6 inches off the ground. But there was lots of private space and the trails were beautiful as they wrapped around the river. Lots of great fishing spots.
Tons of frees. Plenty of walking spaces, hiking trails and a large lake and dock. There's an "environmental learning center" and plenty to keep kids busy.
Tent sites in the trees are some of the best for privacy. Trailer sites are more in the open but have plenty of space for backing in as well as electric hook-ups, fire pits, and a dump site.
Close enough to Seattle or Great Wolf lodge to be in a good location, and far enough away to feel like you're away from the cities.
The campground was okay. A bit swampy when we were there in March, overgrown in parts, sparse in others, and not very well maintained. But it's relatively close to Seattle, which is great, and there's a nice day use area across the highway.
Would only stay here again for its proximity to Seattle. Not somewhere I'd go out of my way to stop.
Great little campground, yes it's crowded but it's so close to the city that you can't expect much else. You are still under the canopy of the forest so its like camping lite. Clean facilities, a great spot for short day hikes. We hit this up on stop one of our Cascade Loop camping trip and it wasn't the best or the worst place we stayed. The hike to Franklin Falls is nice, even if it's wicked crowded.
