Update to my review from 2010. Still great views across the Strait of Juan de Fuca, although this years regional wildfires limited the blue skies and made for fiery red sunsets. The park has removed some of the trees, making it easier to maneuver our 35ft Class A through the main loop. The staff and volunteers at the park keep it spotless, and as with most parks, they have upgraded to 50 amp electrical. They still do not have sewer, nor a dump station. The nearest dump site is at Deception Pass State Park, but every time we camp we just dump our tanks at Camping World in Burlington or one of the State dump stations along I-5 near Marysville, WA. Broadcast TV was still marginal, but adequate over my old 'batwing' antenna, but I'd be curious to see what campers with one of the new 'JACK' antennas finds. I tried putting my Dish Tailgater in several spots around our site, and even on top of my rig, to get some level of coverage - but was not able to pick up a single Echostar bird, so you'll have to rely on OTA HD broadcasts. Cell service with 4G LTE on Sprint was non-existent, and my phone kept trying to roam internationally to the Victoria BC towers 2o miles away. (I could pick up 3G from the Port Townsend towers, and Sprint support reps said they are planning upgrades to Whidbey Island in 2018 to cover these gaps.) AT&T had one bar of 4GLTE, and I was able to get online streaming Netflix and play some online video games. As my wife is fond of saying, we camp to disconnect from the world, and Fort Ebey State Park certainly is the place to do that. - NavyStore

Fort Ebey, on Whidbey Island, is yet another WWII military installation that was turned into a Washington State park. It is on a bluff high above Puget Sound, and has great views of Puget Sound, loads of hiking trails and WWII bunkers for the kids to crawl around on. The campground is quite nice. We came here on a weekend in August once. It was packed and noisy, as would be expected on a summer weekend anywhere near Seattle. On a weekday in early May, however, we have the place pretty much to ourselves. The campground is wooded. Trees and bushes between nearly every site. A combination of back in and pull through sites. There are a handful of sites that are appropriate for bigger rigs, but the trees make driving and parking any big rig a challenge. In general, the pull through sites on the outside of the loop have more space and better views. The sites inside the loop are...cozy. Washington state park campsite prices reflect the site location. We paid $35 for a "premium" site with hookups. "Economy" sites without hookups are $20. About ten sites have 30A power and water. These are all the largest sites furthest from the bluff. The sites are more or less level. Restrooms are not fancy, but are clean. The biggest downside to this place is the lack of dump station. There's no dump station anywhere nearby. There's one at Deception Pass, half an hour north, that is available for free with your camping slip, and a county park 5 miles to the south that is $5. We were able to get some Seattle TV channels, but reception was marginal. The trees would make satellite reception unlikely. With our WeBoost, we had good AT&T reception, and marginal Verizon. Without the WeBoost, AT&T was marginal, and the Verizon phone could have been left at home. - AnnP

Previous reviewers pretty well said it all, it hasn't changed. Some sites have water & electric, ours didn't, not a problem for a 3 night stay as we have a genny and genny hours are fair at 8:00AM-10:00PM. I Feel price (includes res. and out of state use fee) pushing the limit for a dry site. I would have rated higher if the price was better and a dump station was onsite. - Procarver

Park doesn't do reservations after 9/15 until sometime in the spring. New clean restroom and shower building. Watched the ferries arrive and depart. Went up to the old fort and found a TV show being filmed (season finale for Z Nation). Lots of deer and rabbits. Saw a surfaced submarine being escorted out of the Sound. I recommend ferry reservations. We didn't have one and had to wait for the next ferry. - Mary E

The campground area is basically a big, flat spit with a paved main road and gravel sites. None of the pull-through sites have hookups, but the views are outstanding. Generators are allowed during certain hours. The hook-up sites are in a long oblong and are all back-in. There is reasonable space between sites, but there is nothing but grass and gravel between sites, so no privacy. The restroom was spotless. Showers are $.50 (two quarters) for 3 minutes and the lights are on a sensor, so you may be surprised by the lights going out after you start your shower. When the check-in hut is staffed, or the host is available, tokens can be purchased for the showers.
The ferries do not blow their horns to announce arrival and departure, so are fairly quiet, sounding similar to a train when coming and going. There is no noise associated with loading and unloading and it is actually nice to see the boats coming and going.
The beach is outstanding, and the bluff above the campground has an amazing array of WWII structures put in place to protect the coast. You can spend a day wandering among these structures and imagining what life must have been like for the many soldiers stationed here.
We spent New Year's Eve here and it was blissfully quiet. - rfarkle

This is a very popular state park that is hard to get into without reservations in the summer. In the shoulder season and during the winter there are no reservations and it's first come, first served. On nice weekends, it can be hard to get into even during the off-season. We came in on a Thursday afternoon and all the hook-up sites (water and electric only) were already taken, as were the best view sites. Still, we were able to get a site with a nice view of the water and the ferry landing. In my opinion the non-hook-up sites are the best because they have the best views and are the most spacious. Washington State parks now have a tiered fee system at their parks (at least some of them anyway). This means that sites are various prices depending on whether they are deemed to be Premium, View or Economy sites. The best thing about this park is the easy access to the ferry which goes over to the charming Victorian town of Port Townsend. It's an easy walk to the ferry from the campground and the walk-on fares are very reasonable. There is no dump station at Fort Casey, but there are dump stations at Fort Ebey and Deception Pass State Parks and they are free if you've been camping at Fort Casey. - BruceandKathyWA

SAD NEWS....THIS PARK WILL CLOSE, PERMANENTLY, ON OCT 15, 2017. The city is expanding the harbor area and eliminating the RV park. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

Stayed here in the past before construction which cut the park in half. It is a good city park, well placed, pleasant except for homeless people and kids sometimes act out. This location, Windjammer park is where lots of activities by the city occur. You can get car shows, Thursday evening concerts by the town band playing big band favorites. Location is great, there is local bus service except on Sunday, that is free and you can go all over the island if you are patient and don't mind the bus. Good restaurants, grocery stores, ect. Nice small town. For us it is really not a camping experience, but a nice place to set up and enjoy all the hookups and civilization after weeks on the road boon-docking on the road up and back from Alaska. - smokeyd

Staysail campground is co-located in Windjammer City Park, right on the harbor. It is a first come/first served park (they do not take reservations). If you are fortunate to be on the end, closest to the beach, the views are magnificent -- on clear days you can see both Mt. Baker and Mt Rainier. The park has free WiFi and recycles everything except glass (which can be recycled at the Safeway). You can walk to Safeway, Walmart and several good restaurants and coffee shops. There is a car wash, that accommodates large RVs, on the next block and the 'historic downtown' is only two blocks away.
Windjammer City Park has lots of lush grass, apple trees, public restrooms, a nice pavilion and picnic areas; there's a paved walking path along the shore line and its very popular with families. There are frequently free events scheduled in the park.
The general parking area (for the City Park) is adjacent to the RV park so traffic can be heavy. There are also a lot of folks who don't seem to understand the concept of picking up after your dog. Unfortunately, Oak Harbor has a large homeless population and they congregate in Windjammer Park. While we were there, the police visited almost daily in response to calls from the public. I'm sorry to say, on two different days, the police resorted to pulling their weapons; one of those was at the rig parked next to ours. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

If you are looking for a place with roomy sites and beautiful landscaping, this is not it. If you want to be on the water, with 3 restaurants across the street & an easy 15 min walk to town, this is the place for you. There is a small beach. Fabulous views of Port Townsend Bay & Admiralty Inlet. Most of the sites are close together (front door to front door) but some do have more space and those have a picnic table. There is convenient parking for visitors. They have a very clean laundry with new machines. It's also very pet friendly. - storms

Using 'resort' is s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g the definition way beyond what it is meant to be. Simply put, it's pretty much a bare bones place to camp. Be that as it may, we continue to camp here here year after year for several reasons. (1) it's right on the waters of Admirality Inlet, the main shipping lane into Seattle and to the naval bases in Kitsap and Bremerton; (2) the weather is generally good; (3) it's within fairly easy walking distance of beautiful downtown Port Townsend; and, (4) there's so much to do see in the area, you can't get bored. As for the campground itself; the spaces are all gravel and at lot of them are rather tight, as in close to your neighbor and not always enter to get your rig in and out of. All sites are full hookups, except #360 and #362 which are dry camping only. Premium sites (305, 306, 307, 322, 328, 332, 335) are nearest the water so there's not another rig blocking your view. Naturally, these are the most popular sites and advance reservations are a must (we've already reserved our choice spot for the fall of 2019). In the 'loop' side of the campground, sites 338-347 on the front row, face the water, giving motorhomes a water view through the windshield; if your 5th wheel has a rear living room, then the hook-ups will be on the off side. Sites 349-358 are in the 2nd row with the view obscured by the front row folks. The campground can handle big rigs - with the caveat of some tricky maneuvering necessary for certain sites. Generally speaking, most of the front row sites(except 305 and 306, which are limited to rigs 25-ft or less) would be my choice for big rigs. - boardman

Difficult arrival as registration office was somewhat hidden & signage misleading. You will need to park your rig on the sidewalk or partially in the street & walk between buildings to reach the office in back by the marina. We passed it by & the cafe to a dead end at the waters edge. Managed a hard turn arround. Assigned Site 310 gravel with a front entrance. Because our rig & the water view was in the back we pulled in the wrong direction. We did have extra long connections which were necessary. The sewer connection is a raised 45° so incline is not attainable for drainage. No picnic tables in the site but there are a few along the water. The advantage here is the water front, marina & proximity to the cute town shops & touring. - darjeling

If you love long walks on the beach, lighthouses and views of the water, this park is perfect! The RV park is located on the Straight of Juan deFuco and has beaches on two sides. The sites are extra large, with ample parking, most of the pull thru sites are situated so you have privacy on your front door and patio area. It's easy to navigate and check in can be done after you park. This is one of Washington's most popular state parks so expect to make reservations months in advance to avoid disappointment. There are two campgrounds at Ft. Wordon, one is up on the hill (no view of the water but close to all the action in the Conference Center) the other is down on the beach. You must enter the Conference Center Grounds, via Cherry Street, to get to either one. Registration is in the Conference Center (follow the signs). - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

Arrived in the middle of a storm and some of the sites were flooded, including ours. It's tricky to put pads under your jacks when they keep floating away. Luckily, the storm ended, the site drained quickly, and we had a great stay. The sites are paved with grassy yards. We were very close to the beach and some of Fort Worden's bunkers. We were able to get a satellite signal as well as several OTA channels. We had 1-2 bars of 4G on ATT, but had a lot of trouble connecting. You're supposed to stop at the commons to register but the signs weren't very clear, especially in the rain, so we went back after we unhooked our rig. This is a very popular park so be sure to register well ahead of time. We would definitely come back. - lorangl

Loved this campground. Roomy, right on the water next to a slew of historical features (a decommissioned base with museums etc.) and things to do. Unfortunately I was only there for a day, had to jump on the ferry (3 mi. away) the next morning. Next time I will make a point to spend more time. Kids love it. - Oregon Ms

Very convenient, although sites were closer than we'd prefer. Nice fire pit. Good paved road, convenient restroom. Not well supervised, as one day, these very weird couple appeared out of no where and were very hyper. They quickly cooked their dinner and were scanning all around them, thank goodness they left after that. Otherwise park was ok. Not the beach front, but in the older, upper area. Adequate for a couple nights. Might return, if nothing better found. - Maltaman

When I checked on reservation website, it showed the park as full. Knowing the lack of accuracy of their system, we came here anyway. Found there to be several sites available, but due to some strange rule, we could only stay one night without a reservation. We found it to be a decent state park campground with the common lack of amenities, 30 amp, no Wi-Fi, no TV, and no sewer for $45/night. Most sites were back, in some pull throughs. The sites were pretty large and even though it was advertised as beachfront, it was 200 yards, plus to the beach. A few sites were shaded but most were not. The large hill west of the park provides shade in the late afternoon. There is a small store on the property but for goods/services you have to drive into Port Townsend [approx 2-3 miles]. Campground hosts were helpful and nice. After the 1 night stay, we moved to a city campground that was directly on the beach and more convenient. If coming here, it is hard to find and after finding the park, it continues to be difficult to find the campground due to ineffective signage. - yachtjockey

There is good news and bad news about this park. The bad news: You need to have a good GPS and a personal guide to find out where to go and what to do once you get here. Fort Worden is a decommissioned Army post turned into a state park. Don't expect a grand entrance when you get there. It's just a small gate and sign to welcome you. Once inside, we were lost right away. At the first intersection there is a military type sign with arrows pointing right and left with many designations, none of them having anything to do with camping. We just took a guess and started driving around in our big rig trying to figure out where to go. After a while a park ranger pulled along side of us and asked if we were lost. "What do you think?", I said. He said that we would have to go to the park admin office to register first. "Great, where's that?", I asked. He said to follow him and he took us around to the registration office. So, I park our rig and walk back a block or so to the building (through a drizzle) only to discover that the first requirement is that you need to know the license plate numbers of your vehicles. Oh, boy. How many of you know yours? Good thing I brought my cell phone with me to call my wife and ask her to go out into the drizzle and read them off to me. Of course, none of this is explained anywhere, not even in the email that was sent to us confirming our reservation. I finally got registered and paid up -- not cheap. With taxes, extra vehicle and all, it came to $40 per night. They told me that they were going to be full up and that we got the last site available. They were disingenuous about this. Either that or they are inept. We practically had the whole upper campground to ourselves for the two nights that we stayed. Plus, they put us into a site that was very narrow to back into and the pine trees had overgrown the spot and they had to come out and trim some limbs so that we could get our slide-outs out. When we called the office to see if we could move to the site next door, which was more open and easier to access, they said that every site was booked up through the 4th of July. By the time we left on July 1st, there were at least 5 sites wide open all around us. More bad news -- no Wi-Fi, no sewer hookups and, if you want to use their showers it costs 50 cents for 3 minutes of hot water. Not what you'd expect for $40 per night. Well, the good news. The upper campground is not crowded; you have plenty of space. And, the surroundings are woodsy. There is lots of grass and open areas to let kids play and to run your dog. The park is convenient to a lot of things on the Olympic Peninsula and Port Townsend is a quaint harbor town. We would probably not stay here again. - kingfisher

One of our favorite Washington State Park Campgrounds. Miles of hiking and biking trails. Lot of history from WW1 and WW2. Very friendly Campground Hosts. Only problem is that in the winter the water is turned off. There is one site to fill up at though. Great views of Pt. Townsend Bay and Pt. Townsend across the bay. Hike around to the Lighthouse and get a great view of Admiralty Inlet. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. Easy, level, gravel back in sites mostly. Some pull through sites further back in the trees, which gives you a great wind break. Highly recommended for relaxation and family time. - The Mangonel

We stayed in the beach campground. Our site was a back-in, very level and wide, and trees on both sides provided a lot of privacy. A nice quiet park in the evening (a campfire ban was in place while we were there so no annoying smoke). The ranger on duty was very helpful, and the registration booth was well stocked with maps and pamphlets. We stayed two nights and we would definitely stay here again. - mariquita225

This is a great park. There are two campgrounds, one in the forest and one near the beach. There are trails to hike, beaches to walk and nature to enjoy. Not to mention there are old gun emplacements from when this was a coastal defense fort. - Dan C

Large campground with a few 30 amp and lots of 15 amp spots. Very conveniently located to Port Townsend. Good hot showers. Walking distance to North Beach and Fort Worden State Park for hiking. - gsholz

Convenient to Port Townsend and only a short walk to Fort Walton Park, this fairground camp ground was very disappointing. There are five rows with 7-10 sites per row. The first two rows are power/water/sewer (but only 6 of these sites had 30 amp, the rest were 20 amp) these are $25 per night; the second two rows are 20 amp/water (@20 per night); the last row is dry camping (@$17 per night). There is a self-pay station and they accept personal checks (US and Canada).
Note: there is a 10-day maximum stay; you have to leave for 48 hours but can come back and stay another 10 days. The bathrooms were rather dirty, with overflowing trash cans, and one of the three showers (in the women's room) was out of order. The internet signal was very weak; we have Verizon and had only one bar. There are plenty of places in town with free wifi.
On the bright side, this location is only 10 minutes from the car/big rig ferry to Whidbey Island. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

A very basic, but reasonably priced campground located near North Beach and Port Townsend. The campground is a large open grassy field with well marked campsites. Some sites are full hookup, some are water and electric only and some are no hookup. Power is mostly 20 amp with a few 30 amp sites. Bathrooms and showers were worn but clean. They do not take reservations, it is self pay, and there is a host on site. There is no cable and no wifi. Since it is a fairgrounds there are lots of places to walk and to run a dog. I would stay here again. - JoyceM

I wanted to stay at the state park, but found this little gem right before the state park. Turns out this place was cheaper! (The rate is the amount including sales tax.) I had to hunt down the manager, but once I found him, he was friendly and I got checked in easily! Cash or check only, no credit cards. The current manager loves to tell stories, just name something and he has a story! This place is "just the basics" and I'm not kidding! No cable, no laundry, no showers, but there was one porta-potty. On the other hand, it has great landscaping, with lots of trees. The RV slots have adequate spacing between them, except for the "pull-through" spots. The "pull-through" spots are in the center away from the trees (in case you have satellite) and are arranged in the "front and back twosie" kind of thing. Although there were lots of RVs there, at the time I was there, only one RV was in each "twosie" so it wasn't bad. It was very quiet! Although there were some "perms" there, they weren't real obvious. I wouldn't recommend bringing families here, nothing for children to do. However, if you just want a quiet getaway with no responsibility and not having to go anywhere, this was perfect. And may I say again, cheaper than the state park! - DXSMac
