We visit Dash Point on a yearly basis. We don't live in the area though make the 3 hr drive to visit for a couple of days. We like the location based on the drive is easy, shopping is close by and the park is across the street from Puget Sound. This year when we went we found the camp... More

A great place for getaway to have picnics, for hiking, biking & playing volleyball & playground for kids to play.. It's by the ocean, & have a beautiful view especially taking photos of the sunset. A wonderful place for relaxation.

We went on Memorial weekend which meant it was completely packed, however it was not bad. It is a perfect weekend get away and during the week when not a lot of people are there it is very quiet and serene. Our camping spot #122 was perfect and offered a decent amount of privacy minus some people that had to... More

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.
