35 Parks near Port Ludlow, Washington

This was our maiden voyage with our RV so we only stayed one night. It is a simple, clean small RV in the middle of simple, clean Port Ludlow. We had a pull through and although they are easy to navigate, they were not very wide. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice park. - scruggsfamilyRV

We read the reviews, but after calling and talking to the manager, we decided to go. They have 30 amp steady power, Good water pressure, and Threaded drain connections. No Cable, Free TV is available, some sites could get up to 10 channels, WIFI was really good compared to other parks we have stayed at, Good cell service. This park can fit most RVs, or motorhomes. Connections are all in one place, gravel pads are level, sites are wide enough for slides and awnings, we have 4 slides. The RVer's were quiet, park workers were friendly and helpful, place was kept up, and clean. There are a few long stays, the sites were clean. - GRBR

This was a very woodsy, quiet, small park. I changed the "family friendly" to no just because of no "play" areas for kids. This all depends on your own family of course, ages of kids, etc. There is a trail to Ludlow Falls which was a wonderful walk through dense greenery. We stayed a week at about $18/night, much less than I was quoted.WiFi very good, didn't try TV reception. We saw No One on the trail, had the showers to ourselves mostly, and it was extremely quiet. And Dark, I might add....have flashlights handy! I missed having laundry but found one in nearby town so didn't matter much. We would definitely return. - Carol P

First of all, the reservation system is flawed. When I checked there were only 2 RV sites available. I booked one and upon arrival we found over 10 available. You should try and check with the park and not rely on the reservation system. It is a nice state park with no 50 amp, no Wi-Fi, no TV [even over the air], no sewer or dump. They say that they are working on the dump, but it doesn't look like it. Sites 17-18 (not reservable) are the only shaded sites and they are reluctant to rent 18 as they call it an overrun site even though it is the best site in the park. The other sites with electric are in the sun and offer no privacy. Rigs of 40' will need to be careful of the driveway and approach to most sites due to lack of turn radius. The park is kid friendly and caters a lot to the Scouts, whom sometimes get a little noisy. The rocky beach is approx 200 yds from the camping sites. The park is nicely kept and the staff is very helpful. @ $29/nite its overpriced for what you get. - yachtjockey

Wow! A beautiful location. The park is set in a wooded area, at walking distance of a beach on the Hood Canal where kids and adults were bathing. I recommend this park for the variety of activities. It's also kept clean. There are no dump stations handy, no sewer either. - eilatan

Washington should be very proud of it's state parks, and this is one they should be particularly proud of. Aside from the incredibly beautiful natural surroundings, it is managed by very helpful and friendly rangers and camp hosts that were gracious and anxious to help any way they could. The rest rooms and showers were immaculate. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would not hesitate to recommend this park to anyone. Like all state parks, you must be able to live without cable TV and WiFi, and there are no sewer hookups, but the natural beauty and tranquility remind you what camping is supposed to be all about. A wonderful experience. - rollingstone

If you're an Escapee you must visit this park. Same great value and service as everywhere else, and in a stunning location as a bonus. Dry camping and short term sites are all large pull throughs with good spacing. Verizon cell and data worked good, we didn't use the park wifi as it is only in and around the clubhouse. Overall a beautiful park that the residents work hard to maintain that way. - LMH

This was our first time at an Escapees Park and we were totally impressed - what a well-run place. From the super-clean restrooms, the beautiful landscaping, the sign-up procedures to use the laundry (and "solar dryers"), the clubhouse, etc., it showed a lot of pride of ownership. We stayed in the Guest hook-up spots which were level, with plenty of spacing between the rigs for chairs, awnings, without being right on top of your neighbor. The only park WiFi is at the Clubhouse, so bring your own hot spot if you want to get on the internet from your rig. - gtogrl

This was a typical Escapees park: clean well-maintained, well thought-out, friendly and nicely priced. Most of the people live here and have homes here and their pride of ownership shows. Flowers, gardens, footpaths, gazebos and a great central clubhouse with a library, pool room, craft room, etc. They have community activities like ice-cream socials, theme dinners but, if you don't want to participate, that's OK too.
We stayed in the 'transient' section where the hookups for two RV's are between them which means that you have a big space outside your front door and the front door of the others across from you. In this section, you will not be outside someone else's hookups. We had all kinds of space to put out our awning and lawn chairs and there is no way that you could be next to someone else's sewer.
We stayed a week and enjoyed it all. We would definitely come again. - swike

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

Always a well maintained and beautiful park. Campground Hosts do an excellent job of keeping the sites clean and picked up. Bathrooms are clean and nicely maintained and supplied. Lot of hiking, sightseeing, and history to see and do here. Our favorite Western Washington State Park. Our site had a fairly decent view of the bay.
(Costs of $1 are in just because they don't accept $0 on this site!) - The Mangonel

Price reflects out-of-state. We stayed in the lower (open beach) campground. Good hookups, clean but institutional (cement) pay showers. Good walking/hiking/biking. Would stay again. - User3773
Jul 2014 - $36.00
We dry camped in the upper loop. Price reflects premium site. Hook ups Are on the bottom loop, but we prefer the tree of upper loop. Bottom Loop is great, on the beach some sites, but to us a little exposed to weather. The old fort has lots of history, good hiking, and mountain biking trails. We happened to camping gear during might us tides, some clarification get, and crabbing was excellent. We would stay again. - NXTSTOP

We have a 45' motor home and must be level in order to extend our slides. Our size and leveling limitations eliminates many choices of locations. If you have a spot right next to the water then the value would be more in line with the price. The only thing this place offers is proximity to Port Townsend and exceptional views. - Don A

Returned again this year, early season discount, and beach site. Watching ships go by. Staff very nice, restrooms clean. Yes it is an open parking lot, and some sites are better. We had 307, and you can't get much closer to the beach. They charge for wi fi now, and for the costs. It was a disappointment. You bridge your phone, and area has 4G LTE. Town is a short walk to explore. We'll stay again. - NXTSTOP

Fabulous views of the water and boat traffic. Very clean. Close to cafes, restaurants and town. It is not a huge RV Park and felt a bit close to the rig on the other side of us, but everyone respectful of their own spaces. The cable tv worked great but with such a great town to see, who needs to watch tv. - mwamsley

Small park, but not much available in the area. We spent two months. Backed up to Hwy 3 and had some road noise. Not bad at night. Clean sites and medium in size. We would stay again. - RETE8

This is a nice, clean park. The full time residents (95%) are all friendly. The negatives are lots of road noise, day and night. The park sits on the road to the Seattle ferry. Also, there is a 4 page, double sided, fine print set of rules and a two page registration form. They are trying to keep the undesirables out, but have overdone it. This park is not designed for an overnight stay. If you are looking for a long term stay in this area, I would recommend this park. - retiredfields

Small campground right on US 101 with friendly owners and close to the water.
We stayed here as part of a Habitat Care-A-Vanner build team and the group was able to get spots next to each other. Ours was a 50-amp site backing to 101 - it was somewhat loud with traffic noise but quieted down around 11 PM so we slept good. The sites are tight but there is a nice common area, a decent little store, and it is a short ride to Brinnon or Qulicene for dinner :).
The first day we were here (Sunday) we had no cable tv but the owner had us back up within an hour of us letting them know. We quickly learned the owners will do whatever they can to make your stay decent. We will definitely stay here again. - Bay Area Early retirees

We've traveled all over the US & Canada, and this is one of the tightest RV spots we've ever been in! The slides just fit inside the site's borders, barely clearing the power stakes. Once we were parked & levelled, our neighbours tried putting out their awning. They couldn't fully extend it without hitting our motorhome!
I understand that we're as large a coach as you can get (almost! 44', 3 slides), but if you really can't accommodate us, then tell us when we call. Also, don't advertise yourself as "big rig friendly" if you're not.
However, all that being said, it's convenient to shopping, grocery stores, and the casino. A good distance off the highway makes it a quiet location. 50 amp service, and free cable & wifi.
We won't be in much of a hurry to return. Far too claustrophobic for us! - Kelly S

There are few RV parks in the general area for competition, and frankly it shows. This is one of the most cramped parks we ever stayed in during our two years on the road, particularly if you are in one of the 50-amp pull-thru spots. Putting out our awning partially covered the adjacent unit's bedroom slide, if that will give you any idea. There are also quite a few long termers. Having said that, it is close to Bainbridge Island, Poulsbo and Silverdale - all big plusses. It is also very quiet (except that you can hear when adjacent units' furnaces kick in and out throughout the night). - coffeetime

Online photos showed shaded spacious sites but those were only being utilized by permanent RV residents. The pull thru sites were long and narrow with no room to sit outside or even open our awning. Slides almost touched the neighboring RV on both sides. The back end of our fifth wheel was so close to the road coming into the park it felt like we would get hit. So glad we only stayed 4 nights & it was cool while we were there so we didn't need to use ac. Laundromat was clean. Nothing much to do in Poulsbo either. - RendezVous

Stayed here due to a lack of any other options on So. Whidbey. There are no definitive parking guidelines, just primitive pedestals, which allows people to park anywhere. The field where you park is covered with rabbit pellets, a function of the mass of loose rabbits on the grounds. A 4H function brought people in that created a sardine parking situation, but worse, some people brought their horses into the RV parking area next to the RVs and proceeded to groom their horses in the area with the RVs. Health Dept should visit this site, but it's owned by the county. - John R

Sites are un-numbered, scattered about a field. You are close to a road, but it is quiet. The place is crawling with rabbits (which have escaped during previous fairs, apparently), so your pets will probably love it. Port-a-potties are provided for your convenience. - hikinghack

Camping is in a large grassy field near the arena. Weekends and evenings you share the area with the horses / riders and their rigs as they come for practice or riding events. Other than that, it's a very quiet campground, probably the cheapest on Whidbey Island. Has suited our purposes well for a place to hang out before and after their annual art show. Nothing special about the campground itself, space between rigs is very dependent on how people choose to park. We had a nice large site for 7 out of our 10 days and for 3 days had a motorhome that pulled in 5 feet behind us and blocked our limited view of Useless Bay. The fairgrounds are populated by bunnies, a past 4H program that went awry. Great entertainment for pets that travel with you as they watch all the bunny antics. - DRFink
