“Have to know where you are going”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Park is located between North Tacoma and Federal Way. You have to know where you are going to find it. But hot summer afternoons everyone finds it. It can be difficult finding a parking spot. No consessions.

“Good space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Lots of trails and places to run. Not a place if you are looking for organized activities. Does get muddy when it rains though.

“South End Park Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is a great park to see the South Puget Sound waterfront. great for a walk and picnic on a nice day. Up keep is not what it has been in years past, with budget cuts in WA. Parks Dept, but still very nice

This park sits on the shores of Puget Sound. Fine place to picnic or to wander the long and varied beach available. Clam digging open seaonally.

“"wow" is it just me?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

camped at this state park third week of Aug/12 for a few days .Beach was nice. Tide was out so could walk about. Watched as dogs did their business and their owners blatantly ignored the bombs they left behind [i am a dog lover and owner] stayed in site #40 pull thru, but no matter how i situated the 24' trailer we could not get awning out around tree. Don't know how some of the bigger units got around the sites with the roadway being pretty tight. Washroom pretty run down and shower was ....well didn't want to go there. Cleaning crew were there every morning, but not much they could do with place.Pretty noisy most of daytime with children running thru the trails and your campsite. Parks employees very friendly. I've camped at a lot of state and provincial campsites and in my opinion this was one that i wouldn't try again
