We made a reservation 4 months ago for Dash Point. Upon arrival there is no one around. The signs say that you must register even if you have a reservation. But with no human around, this is impossible. There is trash in many of the sites including the one we are in. At better than $50/night you expect more than... More

This is a beautiful Washington State Park. It is great for hikes, playing on the sandy beach, playing in Puget sound., picnics and watching sunsets. This park does require a Discover Pass. The pass is 30.00 annually (it can be purchased with your car tabs) or 10.00 per visit. You can pay the daily rate at the park.

We have visited Dash Point several times. We were looking for a place in the area that was peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. We took a walk out on the pier, sat in the beautiful sunny afternoon, and chatted with the folks fishing off of the pier. At that visit we decided it would be the perfect place for a picnic....

So scenic and a nice place to take a walk along the beach. Picnic area and plenty of play area for kids and pets. Several Scuba divers were there and saying that it was a fabulous place to scuba. You do have to have a pass because it is state park but well worth it.

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
