  • We’ve camped here twice with our toddler (now preschooler) and it is quick becoming a family favorite campground. The campsites have much more privacy than the usual campground, with tall brush and trees surrounding most of the sites so you don’t see your neighbors. Several have good locations to hang your hammock. Each campsite is raked clean between campers and they do a good job of maintaining the restrooms etc. There are a couple different playgrounds on site that are pretty dated and in need of new wood chips to cushion falls. Staff was very friendly. Beach access is a short downhill walk on a trail from the campground. The last section to the beach is a little tricky with a kayak but doable. Gorgeous views!
  • Well worth a visit for the quintessential Pacific Northwest beach walk, forest bathing and water gazing. $30 for a one year state parks pass or $10 for single day use. Head to parking lot for automated machine to pay. Clean restrooms. Picnic areas. Some paths will require strong legs and attention to uneven or unstable surfaces (think stray rocks, shifted root systems, even discarded oyster shells). Some folks hike their kayaks down and launch from the beach. Others bring buzzy drones that fracture the quiet. It will depend on the day and the weather who is visiting and what activities are going on with each set of visitors. Check tide tables and know that only during low tide will there be a lot of beach trekking. Of course, even at high tide, you can still enjoy the water, tall trees, twinkling brooklets and an occasional glimpse of eagles. Truly a lovely place!
