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

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 use to love staying at Fort Worden State Park, however the local Public Development Authority (PDA) has taken over and made it impossible for RVer's. The website no longer provides site specific availability, and if you call the office - many of the staff don't know what RV's are! We have talked to the powers that be at the park about the camp ground reservations and the story is always - we are going to improve that, but after 7 months - still no improvements. The PDA has turned it into a hotel service. The day we arrived we discovered the office has been moved to the Common's - no signage posted to let RVer's know about the change. The parking area for campers is very small - we were unable to get our rig out of the street into the "check-in" spot. Upon check in, no one bothered to let us know the water had been turned off for the winter weather. Only after we parked and unhooked the fifthwheel did we discover no water. Had to hook back up to go to the winter water supply. When the ranger was asked about not telling campers, no water - his response was - yes, we should have done that. However we talked to about 5 other campers arriving after we did, who also were not informed about the water situation. The PDA has ruined Fort Worden. - KathyB36

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

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

The Views from the Sites are Fantastic. Saw Cruise ships daily, US Navy Subs, warships. Ferry every hour. Cooler weather, with a breeze. Walk to Restaurants, town short walk. Clean laundromat and rest rooms.Sites have different Prices$. We had a back-in for $30.00 a night , Front row and pull thrus are worth the additional price. Beach and walking trail at park edge.
Utilities on both sides on some spots for maximum views. Some pull thru sites a challenge getting in. Some sites are wider. Office personnel very helpful. Sunday thru thursday easier to get reservation. This is in our TOP 5 overall RV Park. Pt Townsend GC and Discovery Bay Golf Course close by. See you soon. - silverado
