I hate to write this review as I am a big believer in the state park system. Dash Point Stare Park was not a good rv camping experience for me. Stayed last night and left in the middle of the night. There are several sites...More

We really enjoyed our vist. The park ranger was really nice and told us about the samd dollars. They have wild rabbit's that hang out there. Was very clean.

This is a really nice park. I was there with a group of coworkers, killing time before a dinner reservation, so we didn’t have time to explore the entire park but what I saw was very pretty. The walk along the beach was easy and...More

We were afraid to make a reservation on this campground as other reviews said the trees were not pruned and very dangerous to damage our RV. Fortunately someone had taken the reviews seriously and the trees were all pruned and no danger at all. The...More

We visited here 4 years ago and it was a nice park, just across the street from the water front. This time, not so great. It appears to have gone down hill I'm afraid to say. Some homeless campers, random cars driving around continuously and...More

Go when the tide is low and expect to walk out quite far. It's really a shallow sandy beach and on hot days is a great place to swim and get wet. Make sure you have the discover pass or otherwise pay at the old...More

Excellent place for either fishing or to see a gorgeous sunset. The view from the pier at sundown has got to bee seen. The water and houses along it make a great setting for photography and for lovers

Maybe they were experiencing some sewage issues the day we decided to check out this park. It didn't smell good (or clean) at all. That said, there were a LOT of people (families, singles, couples) all over the "beach" there. It is/does have a beach,...More

Camping in Seatac Area (3 Replies)
My family is arriving in mid August for a two week trip to Rainier & Olympic National Parks. Sadly, my son & daughter in law don't arrive until two days after the rest of the family arrives. Rather than backtracking and picking them up, I'm thinking we could find somewhere in the Seatac area to camp for a couple of nights. Any suggestions? Does Dash Point State Park offer decent camping and outdoor activities?

Perhaps you can work Mt. St. Helens into your trip, as you go between RNP and ONP. Isn't your camping question answered here or did I miss something? http://parks.wa.gov/parkpage.asp?selectedpark=Dash+Point From Dash Point, you could visit Olympia, Tacoma, Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge...

Dash point state park Rv camping (1 Replies)
We are thinking of camping at Dash point state park beginning of October the night before we have to fly out, we will have a 25 foot RV. We have been seeing some reviews that the road is a little hard to get to and there are a lot of low trees. We are used to driving an RV but this will be a rental and we don't want to scratch it . Thanks

Dash Point to Seattle (6 Replies)
Hello, We are camping at Dash Point State Park in July and would like to spend a few days in Seattle. After reading other forum posts I am thinking it might be better not to drive in downtown Seattle. Is there a good place to leave a car for the day and then take a bus or train into the City?

Drive to Tukwila and park in the Light Rail lot. 30 minutes by the Link to downtown.A closer driving alternative would be to drive to the park and ride lot in Federal Way and take a bus.
