23 Parks near Port Orchard, Washington
Aug 2016 - $38.00
Price includes out of state and reservation fees. A very pretty, quiet, Washington state park with some really interesting history and friendly hosts/volunteers/Rangers. Great location with easy (and cool) ferry rides to Seattle. Unfortunately, it really isn't big rig friendly. The road through the park has tight turns with trees very close to the road and lots of low hanging branches. From the web site descriptions and lengths, several of the sites appear to be able to handle big rigs, but after seeing them in person, most are not. Our site (6), while very long, was a V shape with a large tree right in the middle which made pulling through impossible. We also had to bring out the ladder and pruning sheers to trim back branches in our site. Several back-in sites had trees very close to the road making maneuvering in difficult. All sites are very shaded which is nice for cooler temps. No satellite reception, and barely usable Verizon coverage. Most sites are not close to being level. Pull-through site 9 is probably the best site for big rigs in the park if you must stay here. If you don't mind tree branches scraping against your big rig, and are proficient in maneuvering in tight places, this park will be fine. Otherwise, I wouldn't suggest anything larger than 36-38' here (and tree branch scrapes would still apply). - Jerry and Betsy

We stayed two nights and had a delightful stay. Staff very friendly. They even were trimming bushes at 8:00pm. Very woody sites, nice path to beach. Restrooms very clean so we'd stay here again. - Silvana CLark

Only a few 50amp sites so check if you need it. Pretty much in the trees with total shade. Makes it nice and mostly private. No sewer at site but good spot in campground. A 1/4 mile hike to the water or drive to day use area. Great spot to stay while exploring Bremerton Navy exhibits. Close enough to drive to town for good food. - Kirt

We heard a lot about this place from other campers that post on RV Park Reviews. This camp ground was packed to the brim, dogs-kids every where and boy was it noisy--fun as hell to be around. The park offered a lake access below where we were parked and there was a lot of games going on on the beach. We will for sure be coming back again next year. - kara9

There are only 2 full hook up sites available. One of which is used by the camp host. Mosquitoes were very bad. Some nice hiking trails. Only got about 4 min worth of hot water in shower and it cost me 50 cents for this. Dump station was closed. - retnavrib

This is an Elks members park.
The grounds are beautiful! It was quiet and peaceful here, we ended up extending our stay.
Water and 30 amp only.
Free dump at the fairgrounds about 3 miles away (hard to find).
Be sure you follow directions carefully to the lodge... Pine RD NE.
The ferry from Bremerton to Seattle is about 8 miles away, but easy access.
We would stay again. - Edwards-JV

Nice location, gravel surface, sites not too spacious but we had no one on either side of us for the 3 nights we stayed there. A couple of non-Elks groups used the picnic facilities adjacent to the RV parking but they were gone by dark. Friendly staff in lodge. Water and electric at site but no dump. Couldn't get level on Site #9 so chose #8 instead. - RVtravelers2

First, this was a great park overall. I'm from Oregon and usually stay at secluded Oregon State Parks so this was a first for me at a less secluded type of RV park. It's hard to compare to a State Park, but it was clean, well run with facilities people doing touch up maintenance every day, and had a friendly staff. I would definitely return if I'm in the area again at some point.
The cons were that I was parked in the bright sun all day, close to the office, as compared to under the trees in other locations, and was quite close to the neighbor above me on the sloped ground. Otherwise though it did allow for satellite if desired, the restrooms/showers were close by, (The distant sites are quite a ways from the restrooms/showers/laundry etc.), and in all other ways the site was fine. - oregoncamper

This is one of the best RV Parks in the entire Puget Sound area. Most are very poor. We have returned to the Puget Sound area a number of times. We chose to stay near Tacoma because of the activities we were doing.
Very good interior roads. Very good gravel sites. Our back in site was level. The campground is built on a hill, so some sites may experience tilting while parking their rig. The staff was friendly at courteous. The bathrooms were clean. Shopping is about 1.5 miles away. The harbor is only 0.5 miles away. The Cushman bike trail is less than 0.5 miles away.
We would stay here again if our travels took us to the Tacoma area. - rvfulltime

The ladies who work the reception desk bent over backwards to make sure we felt good about our stay. They called us three times before we arrived, once to make sure we knew we had a site for the whole time and didn't have to move, and twice to make sure we were still coming. Also, to ask our arrival time and give us instructions if we were running late.
The site we had was back in and not level. We have auto-levelers but we still had to use boards. The surroundings are a wooded forest and really very shady and nice.
The bathrooms are clean and secured with a code, which I like. - Linda dlm

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

The location of Belfair is great for visiting the Seattle area. The park itself is a wonderful park, and is well maintained. Very laid back, and I was impressed to see the volunteer workers cleaning campsites as soon as a camper left, prior to new arrivals. They do enforce the no check in before 2:30p, which was not a big deal. We are in a 40' MH /c 3 slides, and the spaces are limited for a rig our size, but there are several to choose from. If you don't need services, there are great sites without hookups that would easily fit our rig. The ferry terminal was a 30 minute drive, and we got to Seattle in 1 hr, shopped, and got back without any traffic hassle. Don't attempt to take your MH to the ferry terminal, parking is very limited. We left ours after checkout in the day use area and went on the ferry for the day. - red baron

This is camping for Elks members only . I consider this urban camping at its best. We stayed here five days; it was convenient to relatives house and also attractions in Seattle. If at all possible try to get the sites further back from the main street traffic; traffic is somewhat steady till late in the evening. There's also some walking residents that cut through the parking lot from the apartment complex behind the Elks Lodge. Sometimes you question first impressions, but there were no issues with anybody and everything was quiet and safe . I did ask the bartender inside the Elks, if they'd ever had any issues with vandalism. He said in the three years he had been there he had not experienced any so that was a good sign. Remember to call ahead as there are only eight sites there and it seems like people tend to stay for longer periods than what I normally see. I would try to get sites one through five if possible. There was a vacancy when we got there on a Friday which worked out for us, but nobody left till we left five days later. All utility hookups are in back of your parking spot which is a back-in, so plan accordingly. You may need longer sewer hoses, water hoses etc. but everything worked fine for us. I would say this, if you plan on camping here make sure you are comfortable with backing up in tight spots on a incline. Your spots are level, but you're on a grade backing in; tow car hook up and disconnect can be an issue. We used the fire lane for a short period of time. I would stay here again if in the area. - monaco cruiser

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

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

Site was gravel, very narrow, width of a parking space at WalMart. Minimal room for slide-outs, no room for awning. No trees or shade, no privacy. Could not sit outside, no room to grill. Several full-time residents with their accumulated possessions all around. Not a pleasant camping experience, probably one of the two worst we have experienced. - RDV

This is an outstanding campground. There are no utilities in the campsites, but there is potable water and a RV dump station. The camp is located on the north end of the beautiful Hood Canal. During clear weather, the rocky beach has a spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains. The campsites vary from private to very private. Our site was totally private and deep in the lush dappled sunlight of cedar and fir trees. There are two good playgrounds for kids. Many sites are small and somewhat uneven, but they work for small and moderate RVs. Pull-through sites would fit all but the largest bus type RVs. We were there on Memorial Day weekend, and the campground was full. Fellow campers were generally quiet, and all noise was done by 10 PM. I would happily return. - SeaTeacher

Except for bath/shower bldg, which was cleaned daily, this campground is not well maintained. Sites are small; large rigs had significant trouble navigating the curved roads & trees (this park works for modest-sized rigs); several rundown rigs were using the max 10-night stay; several feral (?) cats. Asphalt pads in disrepair. Thorny wild berry plants encroaching into site & long overdue for trimming. Lots of air traffic noise from nearby Sea-Tac airport. No garbage cans anywhere except at restroom. Beautiful path to Puget Sound shore. Not worth the fee & hassle of the required online reservation procedure. - Taco stand

This is a beautiful spot! Beware - it is not big rig friendly. There is only 1 site for a big rig (#49). After you come into the campground, do not drive around the circle as the trees, overhead branches and corners are tight. You can back into the site directly from in front of the cabins. This site is along the amphitheater which gives extra room. It is a very wooded campground, but we were able to get satellite. Full 50 amp hook-ups. We made this reservation 6 months ago and are certainly glad we did. It is a hidden gem that is close to seeing everything in Tacoma and Seattle. Check-in is at 2:30! We never saw a campground host or anyone at the gate. - Freedom Bus

Large site and with fifth wheel parked, it made a very private area with rig parked between site and road. Quiet, full hookup but very popular area. Reservations suggested. I made mine in March for July and 6 days was the longest "open" time. - Edd505
