Where do I begin... -Campground lost our reservation and gave our site to someone else. After a 6 hour drive we were told to find a different campsite (no refund on our reservation fee). -Commercial airplanes flying over our heads constantly. Don't notice it during the day, but at night it sounds like they are going to crash into your... More

The park has an extensive trail system that is well constructed and maintained. It's tranquil through the forest with the sound of woodpeckers, babbling brook, etc. The hard-packed dirt trail is about 5 feet wide on average, with sturdy wood-supported steps and bridges--perfect for hikers & dog walking, although bike riders also are users. If you trail run, keep eyes... More

Campsites were dirty, last campers trash wasn't cleaned up. Homeless man was camped beside us and was removed by the police. Restrooms were very dirty. Camp fees were very expensive for what we received.

We spent the day today sitting along the beach. Plenty of room for the kids to dig in the sand, and the water was very calm and shallow for the little ones to swim. (and cold) Decent bathrooms right by the beach and plenty of parking. Nice friendly/family vibe to the place. Definitely more room to play during low tide.

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
