3 Parks near Port Townsend, Washington
Jul 2015 - $55.00
The sites are level, utilities work, and roads wide enough to maneuver. The grass was all dead with lots of stickers. Showers were a quarter for 3 minutes.
I made reservations by phone because the web site was down. Wasn't told that it was $10.50 for talking to a person. It would ONLY have been $8.50 if the web site worked. I was asked if I was a Washington resident. Said no. Wasn't told that there is a $5 additional charge per day. I was told by a park employee that Washington wants to discourage out-of-staters from using their parks so residents can.
When I checked in, I did get a $2 refund for not being able to use the web site. I should have only been charged $8.50 to start. I should have been told of the extra charges. I won't be taking up space in Washington State parks again. - Go often

We stayed at the Fort Worden State Park for 4 days. Check in was easy because we made reservations. The person checking us in was helpful. The check in area is located at the forts barracks and main buildings. There is a snack bar there and a museum. Getting to our site was easy and pulling in was not a problem. The sites are spacious. There are some loop pull thrus and the rest are back ends. The hook ups are where they should be and while rather old, they are in working order. The sites are level so no need for levelers. There are fire pits and tables at your site. Our satellite worked fine as did our Verizon hot spot. The only con is the showers. They are coin operated and costly if you take a shower over 5 minutes. Some of the machines are broken and the showers are not kept clean. The best part of this park is its location. It has one of the best forts and bunker installations to explore. There are mazes of rooms and one of the best views from an observation decks. You can also see cruise ships and submarines traveling through the straits from Seattle and Bremerton. I would stay here again. - SteelHorseRider

I love Port Townsend, and Fort Worden is the best RV campground in the area - but it ain't cheap! You choose a class of campsite, and then they assign you a space. I asked for a "preferred" beach pull-through site with full hookups, and I got exactly what I wanted. I reserved 6 weeks ahead. Every site was booked while we were there. The sites are very open, yet widely spaced. The beach is across park road. There is an excellent marine science center nearby (check for operating hours). The hiking trails are terrific. There's a lot to see. We received an E-mail with our space assignment. We parked immediately upon arrival at about 5pm. We checked in at the office during a walk the next morning. No problems. This is a Washington State Park, but is run by a non-profit public development authority. We found no playground for my daughter, but the beach and marine science center kept us plenty busy along with shopping and eating in Port Townsend. There was cell service in the campground too. I will happily return in the next few months. - SeaTeacher

We stopped here for one night only and found it to be adequate. All sites on grass. We had water and 20-amp electrical for $17. FHU are available for $20. Close to ferry dock and downtown. - rdoghse

We were her 2 years ago - see my review from then for a description of the park and area. Once again, we had a fairly level, gravel, FHU, pull-through site with a view of snowcapped Mt. Baker our windshield. The park still has 50+ channel cable TV but no longer has free internet. You can call a provider to get a pay connect. For a one night stay, we did not bother. The bathroom facilities are inadequate for a park this size and were dirty when I used them. The laundry was OK except for one "out of order" machine. I saw no recycling in the park. There is nothing recreational (playground, pool, etc.) in the park. This park has average facilities/amenities with a few negatives but it is in a great location. - Jerry S

A unique waterfront RV park in the Victorian seaport of Port Townsend. Famous for RV reviews that complain about the gravel parking lot nature of the place, while finishing off with statements like, "We definitely would stay here again". We been coming to the park for 29 years and love the place. Don't let someone's definition of what an RV park should be cause you to miss a wonderful experience.
This RV park is about putting you on the banks of Puget Sound and on the edge of a truly wonderful town. It immerses you in maritime culture, 1800's architecture, eclectic shops, a broad range of excellent restaurants, whale watching, kayaking, sailing, great walks, cycling, a fine restored old-style movie theater, beach combing, and some of the most picturesque waterfront around. Hudson Point is the type of place where you can carry your chair a 100 feet or less to the beach, kick up your feet and enjoy watching the boats and ferries glide by on Admiralty Inlet while taking in the splendid views of Mt. Baker, Mt. Rainier, and the Cascade Range in the distance.
Don't be scared off by reviews that state maneuverability was tight or the roads were narrow. During our visit, the place was full of "big rigs" in the 35-42 ft. range. Spacing between rigs is sufficient for slide outs. Only the water view sites get picnic tables. TV cable is provided, and there is Wi-Fi available for a fee from a third-party (NOW). I work from the road, and found the quality and performance of the Wi-Fi good enough to support email, VoIP, and Microsoft Lync for conferencing. I also had a solid 2-3 bars of Verizon 4G LTE.
The RV park is split between the Loop to the west, and the Point to the east. Loop sites 338-347 face the water. Point sites 305-307, 322, 328, 332, and 335 sit parallel to the shore and come with picnic tables and awesome views of the water. We stayed in site 317. While technically not a view site we had plenty. - Celtic Safari

This RV "park" is simply two gravel and dirt parking lots with hookups. As noted in other reviews, what makes the place worthwhile is that you are literally on the banks of Port Townsend Bay. Access to the park is atrocious because of narrow streets and poor signage. When you come into the area you will probably be on Jefferson street. The registration office address is on Hudson which you cross twice since it is a U shaped road. In the park, Jefferson is an old, very narrow street hardly big enough for two cars let alone a big rig and car. It pays to know in advance your site number in advance because half of them are on the left or west of Jefferson and half are on the right or east side. You can "expand" the map on the park website by touching it and widening it to see where your site is. If your site number is 300 thru 335 you are on the east side and turn right were Jefferson dead ends into the second Hudson intersection. If you site is 336 or higher you're on the west side so take a left at the Jefferson/Hudson intersection. After you turn on Hudson if you're on the east side you'll see a sign for registration so park on the road or go to your site if you know the number and walk back through the buildings to get to the registration office. The sites with the best views are 338 through 347. For the most part they are for smaller rigs and a reserved very early in the season. Otherwise you get a partial view of the Bay. Spacing between rigs is minimal, with 30 amp service. Since there is minimal spacing between rigs there are no picnic tables between them but there are some scattered on the parameter of the park. They have cable and pay as you go Wi-Fi . - aznumwa339
