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. We camped at Fort Casey State Park in a Motorhome.

Coupeville is nearby and has many restaurants and shops, plus grocery stores. The Keystone Cafe is across the highway from the ferry landing and is worth trying.

This Park has clean flush toilets/washroom,clean coin/token showers. Sites are very well maintained. The campground host is very good at welcoming you and answering any questions you may have. As well she decorates the park with gardening. Pots and beds of flowers all over the place to make it a home away from home. Deer and small rabbits are abundant and not afraid of people. The ferry is right there but you forget about while looking at the ocean view. Sea lions,porpoises,seals and whales...when the salmon are running. We camped at Fort Casey State Park in a Motorhome.

Right on the water, next to the ferry terminal - but that's not a problem (ferry's are nearly silent). Sites were basic. Great views of the water and surrounding area. We camped at Fort Casey State Park in a Motorhome.

Walk up the hill to Fort Casey - the old fort and cannons are cool. Fantastic views of Puget Sound area. Got out there by ferry - from Mukilteo to Clinton, our 40' rig fit with no problems.

Our favorite spot whether with or without kids. Great place to walk (with or without dog), fun places to explore (old fort, gun emplacements), ferry next to campground that takes you across the sound to the quaint tourist town of Port Townsend. We try to visit at least twice per year. We camped at Fort Casey State Park in a Motorhome.

My favorite State Park in Washington State. What FT. Casey has that most parks do not have is "right on the water" sites at no extra cost. Electricity is now available and reservations is now available for the summer months. Not only a great over night spot for ferry travelers, but lots of walking trails and old WW2 forts to walk through. Beach combing, bird watching, wild life viewing and great sun risings always available. My favorite is watching the ocean ship traffic always coming and going in the straits overshadowed by the majestic Olympic Peninsula mountain range in the background. When is the last time you saw an Aircraft Carrier or Triton submarine from your easy chair. We camped at Fort Casey State Park in a Motorhome.

Our review is close to the other review. Great location, right on the ocean. Kids loved seeing the ferry come in and out. Electric and water sites is $29...other sites are $22. Nice clean restrooms and showers. No dump station on site, but there is one close by and there is no charge with a receipt from campground. The close by town has everything. Park clean and well kept. Easy to back into. Best thing about this park is the park host. Very friendly and helpful. Great spokeswomen for the state of Washington. We camped at Fort Casey State Park in a Motorhome.

The park is a good overnight spot to dry camp if you have ferry reservations for the next morning to get to Port Townsend on the Keystone-Port Townsend Ferry and don't want to get up early and race to get here. Of the 35 total spaces, one pull-through is reserved for physically challenged customers. This park is open year round. This park does not take reservations, it's first come, first serve. However, if you stay here in the winter, be sure you have a good inverter, as it could be a bit chilly! (In my opinion, this park should be renamed "Inverter Park" because of all the travel trailers and RV's here that were using Honda inverters!) Dry camping only, there are no hookups or sewer dumps. The restrooms/showers were, about what you would expect for a State Park (ie: not perfect, but passable). Showers were 50 cents for three minutes. There are water faucets located about every third camping spot, but your hoses won't fit because these water faucets are meant for filling up buckets. There is a "winter water supply" that can accommodate hoses near the pay station. The "pull-through" spaces are on the outer edge of the loop. The "back-in" spaces are in the center of the loop, except for five "back-ins" located at the top of the outer edge of the loop. These five spaces offer the best location for ferry watching, with spectacular views of Puget Sound. The "pull-through" spaces are shaped in a half-circle. Some of the "half-circles" are a narrow arc, and some are a wider arc. The pull-throughs on one side of the park give you a "ring-side seat" to the ferry dock; you can sit outside and watch the ferries come and go. The pull-throughs on the other side of the loop are against a bluff full of trees and vegetation, not as good of a view. The back-in sites on the inside of the loop may or may not have a good view of the ferry dock. Each camping space has a good-size, sturdy picnic table and fire ring. However, you are not allowed to use the driftwood for the fires, heavy fines if you are caught. If you need firewood, you are supposed to leave a note and $5 in the pay box and maybe someone will bring some wood to you. Each site has plenty of room for tents. There is a short, uphill, hiking trail that takes you to the old Fort Casey firing batteries. Older children can have fun exploring and climbing the batteries, while adults and younger children can picnic on the grass. For the lighthouse lovers, there is a beautiful lighthouse that you can tour during afternoon hours in summer, and weekends in winter. As of this writing, there was a temporary food vendor within walking distance in a trailer near the ferry dock selling hot dogs, corn dogs, and Filipino lumpias. However, a sign on an empty building near this temporary vendor indicated that there will be a new restaurant soon. UPDATE: As of late June 2008, the Keystone Cafe is now open. It's located within a short, brisk walk from the park, and has a good view of the ferry dock. We camped at Fort Casey State Park in a Motorhome.
