“Great park with Hood Canal water front”

Reviewed Jun 21, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed here on the way from Seatac airport to Squim. Using my handicapped parking and senior discount the rate was $22.50. There were 18 flat spaces with electric, water, sewer and a loop for dry camping but best suited for shorter rigs. The beach was rocky and more suited for dogs than 3 year olds. The wedding set up was well appointed and over looked Hood Canal in a very scenic setting. The showers used tokens from the pay station and were clean and well maintained. Large grass area and a well equipped playground for youngsters. No hiking or much biking in this small park. Several good points are the proximity to Seattle and the zero traffic noise.

“A great place for a wedding”

Reviewed Sep 29, 2015

Overall Rating

The best things about this park are its proximity--it took us two hours to get here from South King County, even with Friday evening traffic through Tacoma--and the fact that it takes reservations all year, guaranteeing us a spot even arriving at 8pm on Friday.

Overall, I'd say it was a worthwhile option for an escape from the routine of the 'usual' weekends. Getting here and back was easy. We even found an easy geocache ( in the park. That said, there was not a ton to do here compared to other parks we've been in.

The primary attraction to this park is the wedding facility. So if you want to get married on your RV trip, this is the place to do it for sure. The outdoor ceremony area faces directly out onto Hood Canal, in a beautiful forest area. Nearby is a large covered dining hall, so your guests can come inside and dry off for dinner. Finally, there is a single secluded cabin for the newly-married couple to have their privacy far from the rest of the campers.

We did appreciate the nice playground, and wide-open green spaces for playing. The nearby beach was rocky, so not really a great place to play. The kids did enjoy running up and down the beach for a short while, and playing on the ruins of nearby buildings.

The sites themselves left a bit to be desired. For a public park, I expect a bit more to the spaces than this park delivered. Each spot had a gravel space for the rig, and a small strip of grass in between. Electricity and water were offered in this spots. There are also tent camping spots which have much better separation, but were certainly too small for a 30-foot RV. Most RV spaces here were rated at "18-32ft", and indeed we just barely fit at 33 feet. Had we a car along, we'd have parked it elsewhere in the park. We were lucky to get spot #1, which is an end spot, so we only have one neighbor.

A big disappointment in this park is the lack of dump station. There is a friendly list of "nearby" dump stations, but none are really convenient options. As a result, two days is the most we could really spend in this park. Next time, we'll look for other options out this way.

Bottom line, I debated giving this park 2 or 3 stars. Certainly it loses a star each for lack of dump and site quality. Whether it should lose another star for not enough stuff to do was the question, but I decided the playground made up for it and kept it with 3 stars.
