  • Amazing place to camp. Lots of fun things to do with spectacular views. There is a great playground and live falcon shows. Paths to ride bikes and bathrooms and picnic tables. Group camping areas. Fun for the whole family.
  • Beautiful park right on Puget Sound. 27 RV sites that can be reserved, but check the size of the space, many can't take really big rigs. Large grassy day use and tent area. Playground for the kids and great beach for walking. Views of the Sound, Ballard, and Capitol Hill. Would love to stay here again!
