Very small campground in general with tight space. The facilities overall are old and outdated. Shower costs $.50 (exchange for token) and it lasts 3 minutes. Everyone in our party absolutely hated it. They could easily charge people more and remove this terrible idea. You...More

Nice park and well taken care of. The camp host (Don) was polite and very helpful. Plenty of full hook-ups for RV's. The only bad thing is the houses located behind the campground. One house had cars coming every half hour, staying for a minute...More

A beautiful and clean park that is regularly serviced. Bathrooms available, picnic tables, and a few large shade trees to escape the heat. Easy beach access and sweeping views.

From the map, it appeared this park was on the Hood Canal. Perhaps I did not read it correctly, but Hwy 101 runs right between the beach area and the camp sites. Road noise major. Camp not in the best condition. Doubt we will stay...More
