A lovely, forested park with miles of trails, various terrains and a nice beach. There are several large picnic shelters along the park's Puget Sound beach that can be rented by the day, and away from the water the park has many overnight camping spots for tents and for vehicles of various sizes.

I stayed a night with my brother having driven down from Vancouver, BC. It was September and was not too busy. Lovely surroundings, good plots. Handy for visiting Seattle. Yes the shower & washroom are basic, but if you want luxury you should book in at a hotel. I would come back again.

Stayed here for 5 nightstand overall was great. During the week it was nice and quiet but over the weekend it got much busier and people cannot keep there animals quiet. Washrooms could use an update and yes you do need to pay for showers. Park Ranger very nice and helpful.

We were travelling from Manitoba so we are used to treed and private campground. It was awesome to find one close to Seattle. The drive was not bad, just traffic was Terrible. The campground was clean and bathrooms were as well. My only complaint is the shower and having to pay for it. It should be a better shower if... More

When you think of seattle you think fishing and crabbing, but be informed before you decide to grab the pole and head out. Seattle has a regulation book about 100 pages long and you are required to submit what you caught or didn't catch within 10 days. It is also bit expensive for non residents. That being said it awesome... More

There are a lot of places to go and see the Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest, but make sure to add this one to your list. There is a little playground and lots of room to lay in the sand or go hunting for seashells and all sorts of other things. I even found a live sea snail once!

We went on a short walk to the beach. The tide was out and there was a wonderful view of the channel.

Nice but beware of the $10 charge even when you only want to stay for a couple of hours. You will like it with many area to walk and relax. Very quiet and quaint.

Nice hiking trails, camping facilities and picnic areas. This is a good place to go for a walk, play on the beach or just enjoy the views up and down the beach. The water is fairly shallow here, and the beach is relatively small, but it is always interesting to go beach combing when the tide is out and see... More
