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. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

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 . We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Doc's restaurant which is on the grounds is fantastic and the Asian restaurant on the grounds is also good. Get reservations at Doc's. The Victorian era homes around town make for a great tour. Visit Ft. Worden State park per TripAdvisor it is the top rated attraction in Townsend.

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. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring your kayaks, because you can easily launch off the beach or at the marina. Great walks around the marina the rv park is located at, and into town. The Rose Theater is not to be missed. Fort Worden State Park is a short drive, and a wonderful place to visit.

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. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

The RV area itself is nothing great, but the location and views are fantastic. We had a waterfront site. Spaces are gravel/dirt, fairly level and are tight (except for the waterfront ones). The hookups functioned well, good selection of cable tv channels. Short walk to downtown Port Townsend. Good restaurants steps away next to the marina. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

As every other review has stated, this place is about the location and view. The park itself is a 4-5. Maybe less. But it has one of the best locations of any RV park we have ever stayed in. It is right on the Puget Sound. There is a constantly changing panorama of sea birds, ferries, and sailboats. Three close walking distance restaurants. And a couple dozen more close by within walking distance or bike. This park is close to but separated from one of the nicest restored towns you can find. The location, view, proximity to a wonderful town is a 10. Bonus points go for the ease of biking here, and it is a dog friendly town. So the paws have it and I put this down as an 8. If the sites were just a bit nicer instead of looking completely neglected I would rate higher. Likely a 9. It one of the very few places I have ever parked the RV that I could see us staying a month or two. The guy next to us has a house in AZ and stays in this park all summer. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

For location it is hard to beat this RV park. You can get a spot right next to the water for a premium price. In any event you are only a few spaces from the water. We were one space from the water and watched the ferry go right by us. We could see Mt. Ranier out our side window and Mt. Baker out the front window. We also watched several cruise ships go by heading for Alaska. It is just a few block walk to downtown and to the historical home area. This is just a great place to visit. There are also three restaurants on the marina property. There are a couple of small issues. First. The sewer pipes come out of the ground at a 45 degree angle and make using a 90 degree angle end on your sewer hose difficult. You should bring a straight fitting to make it easier to use. Second, I don't think the grounds have ever seen a weed whacker. Not that the place is overgrown with weeds because most of it is dirt. But the area around the hookups could sure use some trimming. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

This is not a resort campground. It is pretty basic and needs a bit of landscaping. There are no picnic tables, no free Wi-Fi, no grills, no trees, no pool but, that said - we enjoyed it and will definitely return. In fact, we will look forward to returning. It is convenient to everything in town, it is right on the water, the views are stupendous, and you can walk around the marina. Location, location, location and this campground has it. The rate cited is based on a weekly rate. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

The RV sat enjoying the view all by itself for the first few days while we were "at sea" on the Limit Stalker. We rushed to get set up and cast off but when we got back we realized we were in a prime location with an unobstructed view across the Puget Sound to Whidbey Island. The front row sites get the best view but there's not a bad spot in the park. The sites are all grass a/o gravel and many have two sewer drain spots so it's easy to park so you get a nice view. The Harbor Master's office doubles as the RV park office and the folks there are as nice as you'll find anywhere. There are restaurants on site and it's only a brisk walk to the charming "downtown" of Townsend with all of it's quaint shops and eateries. "She" will like the consignment shop on Water St while "he" can go one block over and peruse the woodworkers gallery and the auto garage collectors heaven. As was said before "It's the location that counts." We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

It's hard to rate this campground. The parking is tight, yet you can maneuver around easily. This campground is all about LOCATION. You are right on the water and it is so beautiful that the close RV spaces just don't matter. My husband and I have been coming here for a few years and will continue to do so. It's close to town and you can walk everywhere. If you love marinas, this is the place for you to visit the docks and drool over the old and new boats moored there. If you are lucky enough to be staying during a thunderstorm, count your blessings. It's seriously beautiful. We've hit one 2 years in a row. The air is fresh, the water laps onto the shoreline and it takes you to a point of relaxation that is not possible anywhere else. Fog horns, ferries, sailboats and sea birds are constant during the day. There are a few restaurants very close by that have delicious food and of course the downtown area is filled with funky eateries and shops. We'll be back in spite of our neighbors being only a few feet away. This park is all about the location. There is a limited stay so call ahead. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Very unusual park. It's owned by the municipality and sits immediately adjacent to the marina. Grass sites, gravel roads. There was a mix-up with our reservation and we had to move after the first night, but they didn't charge us for that night. Very friendly management. Spectacular views across Puget Sound to the Cascades. Sites on the loop are easier to get in/get out. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites: VERY tight. Gravel or dirt/grass. It takes quite a bit of maneuvering to fit into some spaces. Hook ups: FHU Some 30amp some 50amp for higher rate. Bathrooms: Did not check. Laundry: Looks ok, only peeked in. Pets: Very pet friendly. Lots of area to walk dogs. Check your dogs' paws nightly for cheatgrass/foxtails - nasty. WiFi: Free, but very slow. Verizon Internet: Worked well. Sprint Internet: Worked well. Verizon cell: Good reception. AT&T cell: Good reception. Book Exchange: No. Activities: No planned activities at the park, but lots going on in town and of course the marina and water activities. Mail delivery accepted: No. Area/Town/Sights: Almost everything is within walking distance of the park. That is the main reason for my high rating. The sites are pretty terrible and tight, but the view, the convenience of multiple restaurants and shopping is priceless. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here one weeknight in late July. We had a level, FHU pull-through site with 60+ channel cable TV and adequate Wi-Fi on site. Our view was across the water (about 20 yards away) with a snow capped Mt. Baker gleaming in the the distance. You can see Mt. Ranier from other areas of the park. The sites are gravel and weeds/grass. We were in the west section of the park where the sites were roomier than those in the east section. The bathrooms are OK, but they have pay showers. There is a small (4 machines, I think) laundry. As others have noted, the marina, restaurants, shops, and all of downtown Port Townsend is within walking distance. We were lucky to reserve a site with just a few days notice. During the summer season, reservations are a must. The park itself is probably only a 5, but the location adds at least a point. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

The rating of 8 relates to the excellent location, the killer view, and the friendly helpful staff. In addition, there are two restaurants and a pub on the grounds - where locals eat. We tried one and would eat there again. The park is a part of the marina complex and the whole area is wide open to the public. I would not leave things outside while away from the site. At the same time, it is super convenient to town. While fully serviced, the sites are basic and in some areas very close together. The grass was sparse and uncut, gravel was the norm and sites were poorly situated in some aspects. If facilities are important, this is not the place. Moreover, if you want to replace an awning just leave it up overnight as the wind can be impressive. All said, I will return for the location and the view - but carefully selecting my site. We camped at Point Hudson Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.
