Dosewallips State Park Camping

Dosewallips State Park is a 425-acre, year-round camping park with 5,500 feet of saltwater shoreline on Hood Canal and 5,400 feet of freshwater shoreline on either side of the Dosewallips River.

The park is unique in that it offers both freshwater and saltwater activities. All camp areas are grassy and located in scenic, rustic settings.

The park was previously called "Dose Meadows", whose flat fields were old farmhouse sites prior to their becoming a park. The old rail beds are still present there, which were used to haul logs off the mountains before being floated in the Dosewallips River to their destination.

Dosewallips State Park has one sheltered kitchen for campers without electricity, and six sheltered picnic tables, restrooms, braziers and play area. Some of the activities of the park are hiking, boating, swimming, fishing, diving, beachcombing, bird watching and wildlife viewing. The wildlife viewing platform and the vast areas are open for field sports. Crabbing, oyster colecting and clamming are other popular water activities near the park.
