The campground was great, but we only stayed 1 night because our main reason was to hike Saturday morning. We got an early morning start on Saturday to beat the hiking traffic. We really only slept at the campground and were there less than 10hrs total. The campground looked nice, and clean! The spots were a decent size, fit our car and tent. Table and fire ring within the campsite which was great! We used the table to hold our packs and food! Bathroom seemed to be pretty clean and had TP. Obviously because it’s a porta potty it didn’t smell the best. Campground was easy to find in the evening and within good distance to some awesome hikes. The weather held up for us and was sunny and blue skies. We thought it might rain but didn’t. We would definitely come back, but hopefully next time we will make a long weekend out of it.
The hiking around here is amazing and theres so many different things to do here. It’s close to the water, too which is really neat. They have a playground for kids, fields to play in and an awesome volleyball court. We will definitely come back once they reopen
My husband and I stayed here a few summers ago to be close to hikes (that’s always the reason we camp!). The hiking around here is amazing, highly recommend. The campground is wonderful and offers so many different things. It’s close to the water, “beach front”. They have a playground, fields and volley court on site which is always fun. The campground is near Bremerton, and part of Orchard Bay/Puget Sound. There is also a memorial that features naval guns which is pretty cool. My husband and I actually just looked about coming back, but looks like it is now currently closed until 2019. Check site before going!
Beware. we arrive on September 4th to find the camping area closed.

The park is beautiful, but not in a good way. Instead of feeling like I was in nature I felt like I was in a manicured neighborhood park. The sounds of the neighborhood streets took me right out of feeling like I was camping.
The sites are super tiny and the tent platforms are equally so. The place seemed much better suited to glamping than camping.
