Up north near Washington’s most prized vacation islands, Kitsap State Park sits an hour and 45 minutes from Seattle and the Space Needle. This makes it a great place to do day trips to both Seattle and places like Whidbey Island and even Orca Island and San Juan Island. For mountain lovers, this state park is also right outside of Olympic National Park.
This area surrounding Kitsap State Park provides some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Pacific Northwest. With incredible sunset views over the Olympic Mountains right from your campsite, this state park is peaceful and romantic – it’s even a popular wedding destination. You have all the best attractions of northwest Washington at your fingertips, but there’s also plenty to do within this state park. Fifty-eight acres with a massive saltwater shoreline, you can enjoy swimming, clamming, crabbing, diving, fishing, and more, all from your doorstep.
“Fantastic park and grounds! Tons of space, large field, clear and flat walking trails through wooded area overlooking the Hood Canal, and beach access to hunt for oysters and little crabs with the kids - careful with sharp barnacles, though. Well worth a visit. Next time we’ll bring a picnic.” – Joshua Covey, Google Review
