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

Wow! A beautiful location. The park is set in a wooded area, at walking distance of a beach on the Hood Canal where kids and adults were bathing. I recommend this park for the variety of activities. It's also kept clean. There are no dump stations handy, no sewer either. - eilatan

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

I had a very bad experience living a long period of time in this park I have been in many parks over the last 9 years, and this one was the only one I would mark off my list twice!! The owners are very unprofessional and nasty. They have a need to rule! I am not the only one who has had this experience, Unfortunately there are limited RV parks in this area. I won't ever be back there. - carleen

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We enjoy the unique sea life in tide pools at low tide. A great combination of wooded hiking and Puget Sound beach access.
Small quiet and historical. Large brick open air building for special occasions. Day picnics by the waterside. Grassy play areas. - SandyCharbonneau

This was our maiden voyage with our RV so we only stayed one night. It is a simple, clean small RV in the middle of simple, clean Port Ludlow. We had a pull through and although they are easy to navigate, they were not very wide. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice park. - scruggsfamilyRV

We read the reviews, but after calling and talking to the manager, we decided to go. They have 30 amp steady power, Good water pressure, and Threaded drain connections. No Cable, Free TV is available, some sites could get up to 10 channels, WIFI was really good compared to other parks we have stayed at, Good cell service. This park can fit most RVs, or motorhomes. Connections are all in one place, gravel pads are level, sites are wide enough for slides and awnings, we have 4 slides. The RVer's were quiet, park workers were friendly and helpful, place was kept up, and clean. There are a few long stays, the sites were clean. - GRBR

This was a very woodsy, quiet, small park. I changed the "family friendly" to no just because of no "play" areas for kids. This all depends on your own family of course, ages of kids, etc. There is a trail to Ludlow Falls which was a wonderful walk through dense greenery. We stayed a week at about $18/night, much less than I was quoted.WiFi very good, didn't try TV reception. We saw No One on the trail, had the showers to ourselves mostly, and it was extremely quiet. And Dark, I might add....have flashlights handy! I missed having laundry but found one in nearby town so didn't matter much. We would definitely return. - Carol P

First time staying at this park and we were very pleased with our site. We had shade at the site and it was appreciated as a few of the other sites in our wheel were in direct sunlight. A short walk takes you to the Hood Canal where eagles and many other land and sea creatures abound. Also well marked hiking trails beginning and ending right from the park. We are sure to return but it appears reservations are a must. - Rich1 -_

Busy campground on weekends. Winter here the park got flooded a couple of times, and lower half they are working on. They have a interesting pinwheel lay out in the field area, most have power. I stayed in upper tree loop on river. Lower loop has some nice river sites, but no privacy. Good hiking in the woods, and on that hike saw herd of 42 elk along river bed. Also a shoreline for clams, and oysters to die for. I would stay again. - NXTSTOP

Nice state park. We arrived on a Thursday. The entire park may have had 6 campers. Very quiet. But come the weekend, the whole parked filled up. Lots of families. Great hiking trails. Sites are spacious. Costs are high in WA state parks, in my opinion. - AKBOB
