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

Dash Point State Park is a very pretty wooded area in Federal Way with beach access. We camped over Memorial weekend 2014 in a tent in loop A. When we looked at the park website we wondered if our 9x10 tent would fit, since the reservation info said the tent pad area was 8x8, but there was plenty of room... More

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.

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
