This is a none service park. It's an older park and fairly narrow to navigate. Sites were not very level. Although it is a beautiful park with very large trees and great trails. It's at the end of the Kitsap Penninsula, it's only 30 min. from Silverdale. I would stay here again. - Landsharkcampers

Penrose Point is a beautiful state park with no hookups. Water spigots are available, and the dump station has potable water. The campground is heavily forested, which grants significant privacy for most campsites. Some of the turns are quite tight and branches can be low, so really big rigs may have a tough time navigating to their site. But, my 25' trailer and 20' truck were fine. The sites are moderately level. Bring some blocks. You will need them. Verizon service was good. Due to the many tall trees, satellite TV service is nearly impossible, and broadcast TV is limited to a few local religious channels. But don't spend your time watching TV! Get out and see the beauty of nature in the Pacific NW. There is no playground for the little ones, but a big grassy day use area is available with a smooth gravel beach which is very shallow and perfect for wading. This is an ideal park for kayaking. The hiking trails are extensive and lovely. This park is fairly remote, yet only 2 hours from downtown Seattle, 0nly 1 hour from Tacoma. A big grocery and several small restaurants are located about 20-25 minutes north of the park. The sites are gravel and dirt, with lots of moss mixed in. Campfire rings and picnic tables are at each site. Though I didn't see every campsite, I recommend avoiding site 50 - the trail to the bathrooms literally goes through the site. I camped in site 16 - a moderately sized pull-through. I was at Penrose on Labor Day weekend. My fellow campers were okay. On one side, two families were loud talkers, but generally fine. On the other side, two families that were quiet and hardly noticeable other than the occasional soft notes of strumming on guitar strings. Pretty typical for a state park on a holiday weekend. Kids on bikes were everywhere. Lots of dogs too. I would happily return to Penrose Point. - SeaTeacher

A wonderful state marine park. Prices have risen pretty high. There are a few sites with good electric and water, but most are without hookups. This is one of the best managed parks in Washington. Hookup sites are $35, dry are $30. There are 22 sites and a group site. Some are quite near Puget Sound. - PALPJL

A beautiful little park on Hartstine Island in Puget Sound about 14 miles from Shelton. The place is just lovely and taken very good care of. There is no dump station- closest one is not near. There is water available and the public rest rooms are very nice. Showers take quarters- 50¢ for 3 minutes. This is not real close to anything, but if you are a boater or want to use your kayak this is a wonderful spot. - PALPJL

I called for a reservation during business hours and did not receive a return call. So as instructed, I contacted the night manager at his site. The night manager seemed very bothered when I did this. The cost was never disclosed on their web page so I anticipated the $15 per night found on this website. Turned out to be $40. There are better RV parks for a much cheaper cost which are more developed. - Karichel

We stayed here in a motorhome for several months (The monthly rate went up to $450 January 2015). It's a nice place with several of the RV spots on the water (next to the restaurant).
Level spots, most of good size. Good water, cable TV & good wifi (usually better than my Verizon with the booster).
The bathrooms are private with adequate hot water, but the showers cost 50 cents for five minutes. The laundry room had 2 sets of washer/dryer ($1.50 wash & $1 dry for 38min).
There is a restaurant across the street & a small dock in Spencer Lake for our use.
The owner is serious about the 5 mph speed limit.... I'd stay there again. - becida

Located at 1111 E. Pickering Rd., N of Shelton on Hwy 3. Has good gravel interior roads, roomy, level, gravel and grass sites. Has very friendly owners: we were allowed to pick our site. Seems like 10 units lived here full time. Has excellent cable TV service. Lots of trees in the area, but nearby ones were trimmed high and did not interfere with slide outs or awnings. Was a clean and quiet RV park. Rained a lot when we were here, so very little outdoor activity noticed. Verizon worked well for phone and internet. - renodick

Great location close to town and bike/walking trail. There is a trolley that makes a stop by the RV park that you can take into town if you don't want to drive and try to find parking. Parking in Gig Harbor is an issue. Our site was very wide and long, accommodated our 40' 5th wheel and pickup. We will definitely come back. - User1423

This park is in a good location to explore the area with lots of shopping near by. The sites are all gravel and fairly level. We had 4 bars LTE with ATT. The Park WiFi was unreliable and the cable fuzzy. Too many trees for a satellite signal from our spot, though some of the sites that were higher up seemed able to connect. - lorangl

Yes it's an over priced, gravel site, park but really the best in the area. The trolley makes it all worthwhile. For $1 you can ride all day. It makes going downtown and paying $18 for a hamburger possible. Or you can walk to Puerto Vallarta or JP's Hy Lu Hee Hee (yes it's where the locals go) and get Fabulous food. The office staff is friendly, courteous and helpful. - full timers from Michigan

We had site 74. Dry camping with our toy hauler. Little did we know that the spot is tied to a big open spot for tents! It was perfect. It is close to the bathrooms and parking. Some people may not like it as it is at the entrance to the park but it was not bad at all. Also, you can dig for clams and oysters when the tide is low. Amazing 4th display of fireworks across the water. No fireworks on state parks. Thank goodness. - Shorty S

We had space T24 on the beach loop - 30 amp, water, and sewer. The temperature soared to 92 degrees the first day, but our AC worked fine on 30 amps (we're a 50 amp unit). The pull-through sites could be a little longer for today's rigs, but if everyone parks properly, things seem to fit okay. Friendly staff. - NotSoBadBob

Nice scenery. Some of the pull-throughs are a little sharp for the bigger rigs, but most are okay. We arrived about 1/2 hour before check-in time and had no trouble getting right in. Ranger and staff were pleasant. We stayed in the Beach Loop at a pull-through site with 50 amp, water, and sewer. - NotSoBadBob
Sep 2017 - $42.00
The pros are the sites are shady and right across the street from a nice beach/walking area and full hookups (30 amp). Good cell here (Verizon, T mobile and ATT were all over 7mbps unboosted). All major stations OTA. The area is gorgeous and there are lots of cute little shops and restaurants to explore. The beach is rocky and has a lot of shells but still nice to walk on. The cons are this campground is tiny. I barely fit into my site. In fact my front tires ate some tree stumps getting in. I have a 34ft class A. I believe they should probably not take anything over 32ft here with the awkward layout and tight turns. The sites are placed haphazardly and people are right up on one another. Everyone has their campfires going and due to the lack of space between sites you can't even have your windows open it's so smokey. I'm not very sensitive to smoke at all and it is out of control here. For the price of $42/night this is high for a state park. I heard there was a larger state park nearby which is better suited for large vehicles. I wish I had done more research on that. - Jessie1975

Very convenient to I-5, Tacoma, Seattle,& other scenic sites. The setting is on American Lake which is a beautiful and sometimes busy lake. A great camp host assisted us with getting CATV connected, which was good because with all the overgrown trees there is no way we could have gotten satellite service! Our pull thru site was very long and spacious. The office staff was very helpful. That is as positive as I can get. Trees, brush, weeds are completely out of control. Bring some shears to cut the blackberry bushes back from your site. Laundry was barely tolerable. The washers had not been cleaned and made you feel that you needed to run a clorox rinse before you put your clothes in. In the middle of my drying cycle, while I was waiting outside, the cleaning crew came in and blocked the door with furniture and and "closed" sign for cleaning! The bathrooms were clean, but the lounge and laundry could use some attention. Do not reserve a lake front site expecting privacy. Especially site # 301, which appears to be a nice, long, pull thru lake front site seems to be the public access for the entire park to the lake. Adults, children, dogs, bikes are constantly going between, thru, around and sometimes OVER you to get to the water. PILES of chairs, floats, trash, dog and goose poop everywhere. While there is suppose to be no swimming except across the lake in designated swim area, that is not enforced. Nor are there any signs or attempts to make a public walkway if this is indeed not included with the site. NOISY party boats with music blasting and what appeared to be "over served" partiers very loud on the lake at times. On top of that row 300 is a one way "path" with all the sites facing away from the lake with hookups on the lake side and your door facing the street! I did notice a large number of what appeared to be full time, active duty homesteading there, even though a 2 week limit is stated. Totally needs some decent management!! - Gypsy Duo

Park continues to not be taken care of. Weeds and trash everywhere. Asked desk clerk about a problem with a site and she said (without prompting) that she had only been in the park once on the day she started!! Stay there every summer on our way to Oak Harbor, WA., and it just seems to get worse every year. Camp night time host was out with a weed wacker but one person can't be expected to make any difference with that mess. - Jim DR

I will start with the positives: not too far off I-5, our pull thru was large enough to accommodate our 36' RV with small toad, plenty of trees around for shade, most sites have privacy. Check-in was very easy, there is a lake with beach & boat launch, laundry facility with TV inside that I have not used. Sites are paved as is the road, there are several recycle bins and garbage bins throughout the campground. It appears that the base is divided and to go to the BX, Comm., movies etc. you leave the north side, go under I-5 to another security point & show your military id's. A little different. Now my only beef is the so called CATV, for us and other campers it is non existent. The service is through Comcast and if you have an older TV you must use a special box to bring in the cable. 2 boxes later nothing. We have a small flat screen TV that is 3 years old and we could not bring in any channels. Spouse took box back to office and was told it was Comcast issue. Asked a few other campers and they also had the same issue. So, either get Comcast out to fix it or drop it from what you have to offer. We also put our antenna up and got 16 channels with Fox being the only known station. - petpeople

Great location by American Lake. Tent and RV camping. RVers need to make reservations early as this park stays full. Larger RVs fit well on "C" row but might have issues by the water on "A" row or in short spaces on "B" row. "A" row has the best view and access to the beach and river but, you have everyone and their dogs walking thru your camp area. The goose poop around the "A" row area is something else to put up with. Community satellite dishes for DirectTV and Dish are available at most sites but not a guarantee. Tree coverage limits satellite reception at most sites. Mostly level gravel sites with grassy areas, picnic tables and fire rings. Nice place to stay. We stayed here in a 43' motorhome. Recommend taking exit 122 off I-5 for easy access. - RPM-Traveler

Glad we called for reservations, even for 1 night. Great CG right on American Lake. Our site was right on the water, but there are also many ducks and geese, which leave many 'land mines' in the grass at water's edge. Sites seem to be reasonably level, ours required no blocks. Plenty of room for trailer and tow vehicle. Didn't see all the sites, but very happy with ours. Beach area sites are 'sunny', others are well shaded. - Nevada Nick

Tough to rate this park. The location on American Lake is beautiful and quiet with shade from huge trees. The view (if you're lucky enough to have one) can be lovely. Nice place to walk dogs (on leash only). The sites are a mix of good to bad. The back row up on the hill has 50 amp, the other sites have 30 amp (although the office person who made our reservation said there was 30 amp only). There were only four 5th wheels in the park which tells us those with 5th wheels probably avoid it. We have a 38' 5th wheel and will not return unless we can get on the back row (C sites) or Site A-1 because the others are just too hard to back into. Most of the other sites are too short for big rigs, but a Class A can just manage to fit if they aren't huge. Our 5th wheel stuck out in the road a little and another 5th wheel toyhauler stuck out at least 5 feet. The A and B row sites are too close together. If you can back your rig close enough to the hook-ups you can either park your car next to your RV or you can use your awning and picnic table. One or the other, not both. We could do neither because our site was so hard to get into we couldn't get right up to the hook-ups. We didn't have enough room on either side to put the picnic table or our truck. Our side view was of an old Class C in poor condition. The sites are a mix of fairly level to very unlevel, all gravel and not kept up well. Rows A and B are like being in a gravel parking lot. If you come in on a weekend you can pay by check or cash and leave it in a dropbox. On weekdays you have to hunt for the office in Bldg 16 which is in the coffee shop/credit union building with no number on it. The laundry is clean with 2 household-size washers and dryers but no coin machine. The primitive campsites are at the opposite end of the campground from the bathrooms, an convenient walk. At $16 per day it was a good deal but not good enough for us to return unless we got a decent site. - all4pets

Very nice park. JBLM is a huge military base and has just about everything you would need. The RV Park is great with lots of privacy and space between each site with nature in between. It is clean, quiet, and just plain appealing. There is I-5 road noise but it is a like a constant hum from tires on the road that you don't hear after a while. The utilities are well placed and worked just fine. The roads and sites are asphalt and they are each tucked into their own little space. There is no Wifi. I always take a point off for lack of Wifi. I believe in todays world Wifi should be available - period. You can book at this RV park with complete confidence. - jomark

We made reservations for this park with 50 amp full hook up. When we got there a young man put us in site 5. We did not check before setting up but the electric was only 30 amp. When we went back to the office there was an older man and he said he did not have a 50 amp available. When we said that we had made reservations for 50 amp he became very abusive and told me to get my rig out of his campground. This campground sits just below the freeway and is jam in with maybe a 5 ft space between campers. I would not recommend this place to my worse enemy. - possumtrotky

Reviewed this park back in September 2011. Nothing changed. Road noise is still bad. Verizon is 4 bars. We stay here each year because it is convenient to I-5 and the surrounding area. We always get "B" because it has 50 amp with full hookups. Staying here for a week this time. We will return. - Bluebird Bob

We are staying here for a week. It is right by Hwy 5 and you sure can hear the traffic! The location is great for an off the road overnight stop. It is mainly filled with long term people but they do have some empties for overnights. The water pressure is around 50 psi without having to use a reducer. Most sites have 30 amp but we are in "B" with 50 amp service. Not much to choose from in the area so an OK spot for a few days. Would stay here again if passing through. - Bluebird Bob
