It is so close to the urban areas of Seattle and Tacoma that it becomes way too crowded. I have seen multiple families occupy one camp site. Camp sites are also real close together. Positive note, Hood Canal is right there so opportunity to get clams and oysters.
This park surprised us a lot. On the water of the Hood Canal, it offered more family activities than many of the parks around. The campground itself is situated close to the water with several loops, tightly packed together. You will be very close to your neighbor and every spot was filled. The bathrooms are newer and very clean and there weren’t signs of bears or wild animals in this park since it is close to the city. The parks main feature is the water where you can go play in the tide pools but it also has a giant field for other activities. We noticed a ton of locals came here for Sunday afternoon fun.
Been coming here since I was a little kid. they've done a lot with the common grounds to make it more family-friendly over the years. But the campsites are still the same which are amazing.
Nestled among the trees, a great place to pitch a tent, dig clams and have a nice dinner.
As the tide comes and goes, so does the water fowl. Nice campground, open sites, full hook ups
This was our first camping trip of the season, for memorial day weekend. As first timers at this site, we were pleasantly surprised with the location and amenities. We had a tent site and had good shade/privacy. Would recommend a stay for those in WA looking for a nearby site!
The beach loop fills up quickly - get your reservations in as early as possible if you want to camp there.
Tent camped here mid week last August. There’s a beach loop for RVs and a woods loop for tents & smaller RVs. Overall pretty quiet, close to town, close to ATV trails & dog friendly. The kids loved the park! The beach was great, water is rather warm for in the sound, it’s also pretty shallow which is great for the kids to play in.
Just having purchased the travel trailer we are going to travel the USA in, we decided to take a short trip and head to the nearest park. We live 7 miles down the road but I had never camped. We got there early, around 2:15 and checked in. Camp host was not enjoyable. (Perhaps a long day?) Made comments that came across as short. Not welcoming in any way. I dont believe he even introduced himself.
The site was clean. The hook ups were easy. Quiet. We went mod week, but the neighbors were basically un-heard. Very respectful neighbors. Dog friendly as long as they are leashed. Active park. Beautiful views along the water sites. Easy walking trail for sunrise or sunset walks.
Happened to snag a waterfront cancellation. Great beach loop. Two other loops were closed for construction and landscaping work. Remodeled woodsy sites are now smaller with curbs moved and new fencing and landscaping. Looks nice.
