Wow! A beautiful location. The park is set in a wooded area, at walking distance of a beach on the Hood Canal where kids and adults were bathing. I recommend this park for the variety of activities. It's also kept clean. There are no dump stations handy, no sewer either. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First of all, the reservation system is flawed. When I checked there were only 2 RV sites available. I booked one and upon arrival we found over 10 available. You should try and check with the park and not rely on the reservation system. It is a nice state park with no 50 amp, no Wi-Fi, no TV [even over the air], no sewer or dump. They say that they are working on the dump, but it doesn't look like it. Sites 17-18 (not reservable) are the only shaded sites and they are reluctant to rent 18 as they call it an overrun site even though it is the best site in the park. The other sites with electric are in the sun and offer no privacy. Rigs of 40' will need to be careful of the driveway and approach to most sites due to lack of turn radius. The park is kid friendly and caters a lot to the Scouts, whom sometimes get a little noisy. The rocky beach is approx 200 yds from the camping sites. The park is nicely kept and the staff is very helpful. @ $29/nite its overpriced for what you get. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are 38 sites available. Sites 1-19 are back-in RV hookup sites (both 3 prong & standard outlets), and sites 20-38 are no-service camp sites. Water was available despite the signs to the contrary. A new pump-out station was just opened. The Camp Host is at site 39. Plenty of open grass, a playground, and beach access make this a wonderfully entertaining park. Showers are private, cost 50 cents for 3 minutes and are use tokens from a vending machine which takes both $1 and $5 bills. There is a Chevron 1 mile away with a well stocked mini-mart. Privacy is the only draw back. The RV sites are extremely narrow, kind of like camping at a tailgate party. Only tent site 31 offers any seclusion via foliage barrier. Overall, children and pet owners will appreciate the large park like setting. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Washington should be very proud of it's state parks, and this is one they should be particularly proud of. Aside from the incredibly beautiful natural surroundings, it is managed by very helpful and friendly rangers and camp hosts that were gracious and anxious to help any way they could. The rest rooms and showers were immaculate. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would not hesitate to recommend this park to anyone. Like all state parks, you must be able to live without cable TV and WiFi, and there are no sewer hookups, but the natural beauty and tranquility remind you what camping is supposed to be all about. A wonderful experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lovely state park. Limited hook-ups (only 15 available). Small cabins on site for rent, plenty of space for tenting and small RV rigs. Eighteen sites will accommodate larger units, but must back in. Trees, grass, access to Hood Canal for clamming or oystering. Ranger and camp host very friendly and accommodating. Day use allowed, so some itinerant traffic in and out of park, but camping sites protected from through traffic. Road access paved, very level grassy sites with picnic tables. No dump site available, but a very nice place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
