“A quick dash into nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you're here in the summer, it's jammed with kids, dogs, dog poop, etc. In the off-seasons (most of the year), it's quieter. Visit exclusively in the middle of the day. Any secluded park gets dangerous at night.

“Love the Sound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Re: the Police were in and out. Federal Way is a Large city of around 100K people, you will tend to see more Police than rural areas. I love this beach as I can wonder along Puget Sound and distant myself from "crowds" and let my dog run wild. Occasional seal spotted. Their are trails that I love as well.

“Police”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The police were in and out of this place all night and we didn't feel safe. When we went to the beach the next day it was a little creapy....we felt uncomfortable at this place.

“Wanted to check it out.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We went and it was not as big as I thought it would be and it was kind of messy. The bathrooms were not maintained.

“Camping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have camped in the area and the beach is often too crowded. The campground is a bit of walk. The beach is clean and it is family oriented.
