We spent a night in platform tent 1 at this campground over the weekend. We had a great time and really enjoyed the variety of activities - saltwater clam beds/ocean wading, river wading, horseshoes and lush campground hiking trails.
The only disappointment was that you can't really swim in the ocean (too shallow) or the river (too cold), but that's pretty common in Washington.
The park itself was beautiful - lush and well kept with the platform tent locations being nicely isolated. The best platform tent site appeared to be site 3, but we stayed in the least secluded and saw almost no foot traffic. The only foot traffic was people from nearby tent sites who were told that "our" water pump was the closest one for their use. That's why I'd recommend platform tents 2 and 3 over 1. Still, it wasn't a major annoyance.
I'd totally recommend going here. It's quiet and beautiful and has an interestingly diverse landscape.
