We had a bit of an Indian Summer in Seattle and wanted to get an outdoors experience, but did not want to camp. The Summertide Resort and Marina agreed to drop the two night min. stay for just a Saturday night.
We had a stayed at fishing camps before so we had a healthy degree of skeptisism, infact we brought our own sheets. We were pleasently suprised. The resort consist of several cabins a couple of trailers, spaces for RVs, a boat launch and an extensive dock. The cabins are on the Hood Canal with great views. The beach is full of clams, oysters and little critters for the kids to explore. The docks provide lots of fishing and swim platforms (the water is warmer than most lakes in Western Washington). And at the end of the day there are firepits located throughout the property so you get that camping feel. Although we had great weather, the owners have enough activities ie board games, videos, treasure hunts to keep kids busy during any rainy periods.
The cabins are comfortable and are set up for long term stays. The pictures on the website do not do this place justice. This is not a 4star resort rather it is a Mom and Pop NW fishing camp. However you can't beat the convenience, value and experience.
