Went here for a few days and loved it. It's, it's own little piece of heaven. It's quiet and serene. The water of the sound is quite warm here as well.
We had a great time. Restrooms were clean, the sites were clean when we got there. Over all we had a great time.
Perfect for solo camping, couples and families. Well laid out, not too big but big on ambiance with decent sites. We loved our four night stay here. Tip- pick up fresh eggs and firewood at My Mother's Garden on the road before checking in!
Pros: group camp is very close to beach front area, GREAT CLAMMING AND OYSTERING! (makes for great eating), big pavilion, private bathroom, lots of camping spaces that are spread out so still privacy from your group, good sized fire pit with benches around it, lots of picnic tables Cons: on weekends durIng clamming season the beach front area is packed, not a ton of activities close by
Well placed sites offering both privacy and openness depending on how you set up. Great mature plantings, well paved, trails to hike, beach a hike away, bathrooms a little dated but fully functional.
The campsites are about average but the water view is great. For an hours drive (or ferry ride!) From the city, it is so worth it.
Penrose Point State Park is a great place close to Seattle to go camping in a small or large group. It's tent or camper friendly with plenty of spots for busier seasons.
The park is very kid friendly with a slow road between camp sites where you'll often find kids riding their bikes during the day. Bay lake is a short drive away with open access for boats, SUPs, and order water fun.
The campgrounds are right on Mayo Bay so you have great access to the Sound, and if you're willing to sit in the car for less than 10 minutes you can drive down to Lakebay Marina and Resort where you can see plenty of clams, crabs, and more plus enjoy some Fish and Chips on the dock.
Don't forget to stop by the shell station on Key Peninsula Highway. They have fire wood, snacks, drinks, and any other last minute needs you might have.
The camp site is also dog friendly. All in all a great place for everyone!
This park is on an east-facing peninsula in the south of the sound. Views are rolling wooded hills, with some shorelines to explore. It’s not the most exceptional park in this area if you’re looking for classic PNW experiences, but it is a great camping site if you just want to take your boat out. The campsites are very shady and in dense forests with ok privacy.
Our family of four tent camped for three nights in this happy go lucky campground. This campground seems to be popular for group camping and is a great place for socializing. Although the grounds were busy, the densely tree-lined sites provided privacy. Campsites are just a short walk from a calm cove of Puget Sound and our family had a great time playing in the water each day. The grounds, including bathrooms, were well maintained and the kids enjoyed taking part in the junior ranger program. Our family camps often, and Penrose stands out as one of our top experiences.
