Nice little spot, very strict about noise
We camped here a few times when I was a child as it was great. We did a drive through to scout and it looks like homeless people are perma camped there.
Dash Point State Park is your average, nice Washington State Park, with trees, grass, pathways etc. When we were there at the end of March, only about half the campground was open, and we were able to get a last-minute spot in the late afternoon on a Thursday. Sites are mid-sized, with some having more privacy than others.
Cons: While several other reviews talk of the cleanliness of the campground, we had the opposite experience, with large and small trash everywhere we walked (including a whole foam mattress thrown away). It was also pretty muddy, as well as loud (from the airplanes passing over head until the middle of the night).
Pros: Across the street, the day use area is amazing, with a lovely beach, picnic tables, hikes, etc. Generally a very nice place to spend the day.
Tips: Unless you're there with another group or family, avoid the spots that look like they're parallel on the map (9 & 10; 15 & 16 etc.) since they're basically one big site split up with two driveways right next to one another.
its right across from the beach, easy to get to, fun wiith alot to do
Dash Point is easily accessible on a weekday and is suitable for family or singles. I have enjoyed many evenings hiking and trail running the trails and have also felt 100% safe. There is also great accessibility to the water.
Great easy access outside federal way with great hikes a beach and regular maintance and upkeep only problem comes from the city and crime that can sometimes follow lock your stuff up but still family friendly
Dash point is one of the cleanest campsites and parks I’ve been to. The beaches are very close to the sites and have lots of room for kids and dogs to hangout and cool off from the heat!
If you are in Tacoma and dont have a chance to get to the East side or the coast, head to Dash Point. Just twenty minutes from Tacoma, Dash Point has a great camp ground and yurts a plenty for a quick getaway. Easy water access and lots of trails to explore make it very family friendly.

Beautiful weather and close escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Clean facilities as well!
