Illahee State Park

  • Address: 3540 N.E. Sylvan Way, Bremerton, WA 98310
  • Contact: (360) 478-6460

Whether you want to visit for a day or spend the night in camp, 86-acre Illahee State Park is the perfect place to experience the shell-strewn saltwater beachfront on Port Orchard Bay. In the summer months, waters are warm and perfect for swimming, diving, paddle boating, and water-skiing. There’s plenty here to entertain the whole family for longer stays, too — including a playground, softball field, horseshoe pits, and volleyball courts.

Olympic National Park Campgrounds

  • Address: 3002 Mt Angeles Rd, Port Angeles, WA 98362

Explore forests of enormous Douglas firs in the southeastern corner of Olympic National Park. Spanning 922,651 acres, the park encompasses three distinct ecosystems: wild Pacific coast glacier-capped mountains, and old-growth temperate rainforest. Multiple sites throughout the park grounds offer tent camping. Try Deer Park Campground for a high-elevation view of the mountains and starry skies, or Dosewallips Campground if you’re looking for something peaceful and secluded.

Fort Ward Park

  • Address: 2241 Pleasant Beach Dr NE, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110

If you like long walks, the trail-rich Fort Ward Park is for you. Pitch a tent and take a walk through old growth forests, saltwater shoreline, and seacoast sunsets. Officially commissioned as a seacoast fort in 2903, Ford Ward was used by the navy as a radio station and training school for communication personnel. Choose from 40 campsites near Back Beach and Puget Sound.

Emerald Acres Oyster Camp

  • Contact: (253) 677-6623

Looking for something smaller in scale? You might consider renting this cozy beach property at Emerald Acres Oysters. Emerald Acres offers idyllic views of the Case Inlet and North Bay, and you can rent a cabin or pitch a tent on 150 feet of beach waterfront. Two acres of forest give you plenty of room to roam, and the driveway –lined with tall evergreens and wild berry bushes — will make you feel like you’re leaving your day-to-day worries far behind.
