24 RV Parks near Poulsbo, Washington
Aug 2017 - $47.00
This is the second WA State Park we've camped at on this trip and it will be the last. The best I can say for it is that it's far superior to the last one but that isn't saying much. The park itself is nice, and the restrooms/showers are clean and bright. Didn't use so can't comment further. There is a nice view of the canal from the bluff at the west end of the park and you can follow a path down to the water edge. Depending on the tides, there may or may not be a gravel beach area there.
The tent sites are nicely shaded and separated and most would accommodate smaller rigs if you don't need hookups. But the RV area is mediocre at best. The pads are gravel/dead grass and not all level. They differ in width. Ours was so narrow that we had to walk sideways to get past the picnic table to our door. There is no shade, and no privacy with the sites all in a row close to each other.
We paid $93 for two nights for a FHU site with fees and taxes. That is grossly overpriced for what you get IMO. (In 23 states I think the only place we paid that sort of price for a state park was in CA, and EVERYTHING there is overpriced! WA needs to take a look at New Mexico. NM is a much poorer state, but their state parks are among the nicest we've been to and the top price for a FHU site is only $18. Closer to WA, OR State Parks are much nicer and slightly less expensive.)
Wouldn't stay here again unless I had to be in the area and there was nowhere else available. - Pdxjoanne

This is a smallish campground at the tip of the Kitsap Peninsula, within shouting distance of Seattle (1.5 hours, including the ferry ride). The location is wonderful, on the bluff above a beautiful rock beach and the Hood Canal. In season, there's oystering and clamming. The downside here is there's a pavilion that shares a parking lot with the campground, which is used for events. There were weddings there both days that we were there, and the camp host said that during the summer, there are weddings daily. One of the weddings was fine, but the other one had loud music for several hours that we could hear from our site. The music stopped promptly at 9:30 pm, so it was quiet at night, but I value my quiet, and wouldn't come back for this reason. The campground is divided into two loops. Sites 1-18 are for RV's, sites 19-38 have no hookups, and are mostly too small for anything larger than a van. Sites 1-3 are 50A power and water. Sites 4-18 have full hookups. Most of the sewer hookups were slightly uphill from the parking pad. All of the sites were back-in, perpendicular to the road. The turnarounds were pretty tight as well. Big rigs would have some trouble here. RV sites were very close together, especially for a state park. All of the RV sites were in full sun, with no trees. The camp host was excellent. Very friendly and helpful. The state parks system is trying out a new type of backflow preventer on all of the hose bibs, and he had to explain how to use it to every single camper as they arrived. I'm all in favor of backflow preventers, but these were pretty hard to use. Water pressure was low, less than 40 PSI. The map shows a dump station, but I never saw it. Good Verizon and AT&T coverage. No OTA TV reception. We don't have satellite, but a neighbor told us he couldn't get satellite because of the trees. Being a state park, there's no wifi or cable. - AnnP

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

Fresh water hook up at ground level within 4-5 inches of sewer dump and lower than sewer dump. Toilet paper on ground around hookup. Coincidentally we ended up very ill a few days later. Can't believe the city approved it. Never, ever seen anything like it. There is a busy highway between RV park and office/registration. Very difficult to cross and turn on to highway. Some of the campers very rude. Wifi didn't work and was told it was out for a full week recently. The wifi connection provided didn't even show up as an choice. - Rebalynn

This is a nice, small RV park. Long, wide packed gravel pads. Good utility hookups, small patch of grass between sites, but no picnic table. Couldn't get the wi-fi to work but Verizon signal was strong. Restroom was older, but clean. Didn't use so can't comment further. Host was very friendly and helpful. Most of the 25 or so spots appear to be filled with long term campers. If you need a spot here, I would suggest reservations. The only negative is that it is right by the main road. The row of sites in front along the road get quite a bit of road noise, although there is a fence and trees that buffer it somewhat. There is another section across the road which is the mobile home park. There is a laundromat there per signage at the RV park, but I did not check it out. Doesn't appear to be much choice for RV accommodations in the area, so I would stay again. - Pdxjoanne

We stayed 4 nights here. Agreed with other reviews it is quite noisy from the traffic on 305 but that was the only negative remark I have. The camp hosts were very friendly and willing to help with anything. The camp is neat and landscaped nicely. Large gravel pads with grassy areas with plenty of room for your tow. Did not use their Wifi but it was available and was able to have good cell phone service. OTA got about 40 channels but a little choppy. Water pressure was wonderful. Ferry to Seattle was 6 miles down the road and is $8.20 round trip which was super convenient. We would definitely stay again. - Fulltimingit

We chose this park to get close access to Seattle. Most campgrounds around the area were booked. The decision was great because we could take the ferry to Seattle and end up on the waterfront. As for the campground, it has an extremely narrow road through park and it took several back and forths to get into our site due to proximity of other vehicles. We were close to neighbors but all were friendly. We had to walk dogs to entrance to find place for them to go. It's got great evergreen surroundings. If you are intimidated by narrow, close campgrounds, it's not your place, but if you want an easy access to Seattle touring, it's perfect. - chillyvt

Most sites seem not to be level but not much to get level. I usually get a back in site, shaded, easy for my smaller RV. The pull thru sites are very narrow as others have said. I've stayed here before and will again. Not much choice in the area. The staff are friendly and helpful. They work hard to keep the place nice looking. Only about 3 miles to Poulsbo for any shopping. - Go often

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

Great spot for Elks members only. Can't beat the price. 30amp and water only. No onsite dump but there are clean restrooms (no showers). Very friendly folks! And great view from the lodge. - Ridingwithclyde

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

Was the start of 2 week trip, and very close to visiting my cousin. Camp ground has a lot of picnicking areas, boat launch, huge dock for boat this place must be busy during the Summer most things are closed for season. Campground is close to town, ferry ride to Seattle. My site had no hook ups, dump station is on your way out. Site was level, with lots of trees. As you have read, some sites are occupied with questions, host was not really around, or helpful during my visit. This is not a destination camp ground, but convenient. - NXTSTOP

Only one site has hook ups. The RV dump station is closed. The park employees are not enforcing the park rules of a 10 day limit. The park employees are not checking sites for who has paid and who has not paid. It appears that a homeless encampment is sqautting on the only site available with hook ups. - MrRigdon-17

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

It's a small but clean and quiet park. It does border Hwy 101 so the rvs on that side will have some traffic noise. Our site was plenty big and wide for our big rig with some great shade too. The restrooms and showers were clean. We used this as a base camp to tour the Hood Canal area. There are good restaurants in Brinnon and Quilcene. The small store at the office was very handy too for last minute items. - southwestgal

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

Folks tethered to electricity and full utility sites are really missing some great camp sites. Scenic Beach offers private, shaded sites that you just can't find other places. Each site is surrounded by tall trees, and an understory of bushes, so you can hardly see or hear your neighbors. It is above Hood Canal, with an equal number of back in and pull thru sites, but as it's in the hills, not all the sites are level. There is a dump site. Also, if you don't have reservations, you need to pay at the entrance which is quite a hike. Even though its an extra $8. I would recommend reservations just for that reason alone. There are a few trails and a small beach within walking distance. I want to go back in May when the rhododendron are in bloom. It must be spectacular. - Desertthorn

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

We loved it because it is very wooded, lots of room between sites and privacy with lots of bushes and trees. Only 49 sites. Probably not a good spot for a huge motor home. Too many tree branches not huge sites. 2 tokens for showers. Takes a while to get hot water. We really enjoyed our stay. - Ncogneeedo

We just completed our 4th annual weekend at Manchester. We keep going back because we love the large, private, wooded sites and the how incredibly quiet it is! Nice place to walk along the water, watch the ferry come and go explore tide pools. - Mksea

This is a small state park on the water, not far from Seattle. It is clean and well maintained. Privacy is fairly good, with bushes/shrubs between spaces. There is a small beach and a number of hiking/biking trails. I stayed here for a couple of days. - Dan C

We had sunny dry weather when we stayed here, so it was a good experience. Since the sites are dirt, it could be muddy during the rainy season. We loved that it was small, private sites and very quiet. Probably the quietest place we have ever camped!! As mentioned before,Sites are in the woods with trees between them. The owner was very nice and responsive to our initial wifi issues. After that, wifi very good. Antennae tv very erratic; not very many channels. We enjoyed going down to ludlow falls from the trail attached to the campground. Toilets and showers were very clean, however rustic. 25 cents for 5 minutes of hot water. Very convenient to Port Townsend and Port Gamble. - RebaW

This park is treed and reminds us of a state campground. The gentleman we talked to was very nice and the spot was well maintained. We would stay here again. - Steve & Terri

This park may not be for everyone, but we really liked staying here. It is small and very quiet. Sites are in the woods with trees between them so it feels very private. We were in a very long pull-through with only 30 amp service, but there was no need for air conditioning, so we just had to pay attention to our power use. There are several interesting small towns to see around the area, and a nice little trail just off the park road. We would come here again. - dbcordello
