My family and I stayed in the campground and had a nice relaxing visit. Some sites have some privacy, some do not. Check the State Parks Website for site photos before visiting. The facility is well maintained and nearby you can play in the sound, watch birds and other animals or hike or mountain bike on the many miles of... More

The park has not changed since I was a kid 45 years ago. Good place to take your kids. Try to hit high tide, best on week days

We stayed in one of the cabins (cabin 5) and were with a large group of people, one other family stayed in cabin 4, while four other families used campsites (3 rv sites and 1 tent). Initially the campground seemed ideal with the cabins backing into a large grass space perfect for the kids to play a game of baseball... More

Entered off a typical suburban street in Tacoma to a delightful wilderness that was totally unexpected & quite extraordinary. It was a very pleasant experience to walk around in the park in a rain forest like setting. I enjoyed walking the trails. There are some hilly areas, so be aware of that. Also, look at the maps so you don't... More

Tucked into a local community. Was looking for another park and stumbled upon Dash Point State Park. Turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. A peaceful area of Puget Sound. Take a stroll on the beach, picnic, and explore. A nice get-away.

Fun place to take the kids to wet their feet and look over the Puget Sound...a few picnic tables and a bathroom facility, trails to hike or just walk along the beach.

Very nice camping sites, clean restrooms and pleasant staff. Hard to find as it is not well marked and runs through town towards coast,

I love going hiking here it is also a great place on a hot day to spend some time at the beach. Like most beaches around the Puget Sound it is rocky and not sandy. I often grab dinner to go and spend some time on the beach. There are a few picnic tables and grills. A Discovery Pass is... More

The views of the Sound are great, and there's a seldom used fire pit near the beach. My family and I go there at least a few times a year with friends to roast hotdogs and marshmallows, enjoy walks on the beach and take some picture of the sound. The last time we were there we saw a bald eagle.
