Great state park, sites are nice, guests are quiet and respectful, nice hiking trails with a water view. Just a short drive to downtown Pt Orchard with good restaurants and great antique shopping and even a farmers market. Makes for a great weekend.

There is water where you empty your holding tank. This is the water source during the winter season. Other than that there are water spigots at various spots in the campground area- one for every 4 camp spots.
