Arrived after making a reservation for two nights and took one look at Site 52, realized Site 51 occupants left our site with very little room side to side. Campground was full, bikes etc all over, and this section of the upper campground in particular did not look conducive to a relaxing camping trip. We were really disappointed in the sardine can placements of sites listed above, We chose not to stay and found a wonderful site at another state park.

“Dumpstation and fresh water!”

Reviewed 10/23/2018

Overall Rating

The upper campground at Fort Worden has a nice dumpstation. I believe the fee for non-campers is $5, otherwise it's included in your campground price.
There is also a faucet for fresh water which is a few feet away from the dump station itself, making it more hygienic (meaning, people don't use the fresh water to rinse their dump hose). Not sure if the fresh water is turned on all winter, but considering that Port Townsend usually has a very mild winter, I wouldn't be surprised if they do not winterize (but I could be wrong).

Right by the upper campground, I was never able to get an At&T signal, but at the campground along the beach it's fine.

The upper campground is forested and shady in summer; the lower campground has all exposed sites in full sun which may not be such a problem because Port Townsend doesn't have super high temperatures. But it gets very windy at the beach, and at the upper campground you are protected from the wind.
