The Dash Point Park trail system extends sharply uphill (or downhill if you live nearby, like I do) is second to none in the area; the beach is small, but nice, with great views north to Seattle and south to Tacoma.

Great place for reflection, couple picnic or a family BBQ. We have had years of fun in & around the water. VERY shallow so super safe for children. Lots of sandy beach.

Also good to swim as it's sandy beach or walk I. The cooler seasons. The tide goes out a fair ways here and you can always find... More

Like all Washington State Parks along the shoreline of Puget Sound, Dash Point State Park holds up in beauty and serenity. The beach is sandy, a little creek runs into the bay and as one drives down the terrace to the beach area of the park, huge madrone (madrona) and big cedar trees shade your approach. Stormy or Clear...it's one... More

Visiting from Australia. Went to Dash Point Park with my wife who has lived and grown up in Federal Way and daughter, we loved the stroll through the trails down to the beach. Got to see my first Woodpecker...and squirrels along the way. The entry price to walk the trail is a bit steep specially as we only walked it... More

We went to this park just to see and we were told you could get right on the beach at the sound. Well... you can, but the beach was kind of a dirty, unkept, sort of a place and we found that most people out there (when we were there) used it as an area to walk their dogs. Not... More

I camped here over July 4th weekend 2013. The privacy of the campsites is pretty good, the camp hosts were so nice and engaging, and the beach at Puget Sound was beautiful! I highly recommend going at low tide. The beach is HUGE. There is a great trail right from the campground to the beach. It was mid-80s all weekend... More
