“So near and yet so far”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

An ancient apple orchard where you can pitch your tent; docks for the time-honored occupations of watching seabirds, otters and seals (tho' welcoming to sailors, boaters, and kayakers) -- Jarrell Cove is a destination for its own charms or as a base for further South Sound explorations (Harstine Island State park offers a exquisite gulch hike just a couple of miles away; there is clamming on Harstine, and the Spencer Lake Grill is a retro and enjoyable destination.) On our visit, the park was staffed primarily by down-home friendly park hosts, and our fellow campers ranged from young couples, through extended families with young children who relished the setting, to older families. In addition to the orchard sites, there are wooded sites and one waterfront site reserved for person-powered vessels.

“Beautiful natural setting”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a lovely natural area with views of the Olympic Mountains, Puget Sound, and forest areas. Either boat access or a short drive from Highway 3 this park is a real undiscovered south sound jewel. Take a picnic and hike the trails or stop at Spencer Lake Grill or the Olympic Bakery.
