“Private quiet campsites with great walking trails”

This was our first time staying at Penrose. Our site was great. Very private with large trees and bushes. The entire campground was very clean. This is a no hookups of any kind campground. But that was fine for us as we were there only one night. There is a free and easy to use dump station on the way out of the campground.

There is a Puget Sound beach with easy access via bike, walking or car from the camp sites. There are many very pretty walking trails throughout the park. Lined with enormous trees

This is not a place for giant RVs. There are tight corners and most campsites are not giant. We did see one large fifth wheel in spot 16 ??? It isn’t just that the sites are small, but the trees and stumps make hard angles for larger rigs. We have a 20’ TT and had no problem.

We had spotty T-Mobile coverage. One bar at our site, but that one bar did not allow for internet/data. Had to walk around a little to make a clear phone call.

There is a ranger station at the entrance to the campground, but with COVID it is only manned from 5-6 pm. Self check in at other times. They did have our name and our site on a list at the ranger station so they are organized.

This was my type of campground. Private, clean, quiet, nice walking trails, beaches.

We stayed here for one night on our way north. It was the off season, so they are first come, first served, no reservations on all sites. We arrived midweek before 3 pm and most of the campground was empty, so we had no trouble getting a site, even with some of the campground closed off for the winter. Even later in the evening we would have had no trouble.
The campground has tight turns and close trees, so I wouldn’t recommend it for large rigs, but it was not too bad for our 30’ Airstream. There were several sites we could have fit in - many of the sites are quite large, but the limiting factor is the road through the campground. The site we stayed in was a pull through, but we backed out of it because of the tight angle and a stump on the inside curve.
There are no hookups, but water sources are located throughout the campground. We had one right next to our trailer. They are not threaded however. The campground is heavily treed, so you are unlikely to get any solar power at any site. There is a dump station off the main road on your way out that is free to campers.
It’s a quiet campground with lots of trees and plenty of space and greenery between sites. There’s a nice trail down to the water. The water is not visible from the campsites though.
One negative is you will have to pay a toll to cross back over the new Narrows bridge to get back to the I5/Tacoma/Seattle area, which for us was $12 for 4 axles.
