Great place to camp early and late in the season. It’s not as crowded, but you still enjoy the sites. Leavenworth is about 20 minutes away. Throughout the season, there is plenty to observe around the campground from wildflowers to critters playing.
There are not many sites to the campground, so reserve several months in advance to get a good spot. Beach is essentially a private beach. Most let their dogs off leash to go play, as during peak season driving on the beach there is prohibited. For a cozy campground, most campers are friendly and respectful of others. When the weather is nice and wind is blowing, the campground comes alive with kites, windsocks and other wind related decorations being flown from most campsites. It’s quite the experience.
Great views. Plenty to do: walk-on ferry to port Townsend, beach comb, fly kites, explore the lighthouse/bunkers. It’s a very popular site, even year round. Be sure to reserve your site well in advance.
