Dosewallips State Park, Hood Canal, WA


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 does not have a formal swimming area, but park visitors may enjoy swimming in the river. Please note the river can be swift and not suitable for young children. There is a watercraft launch seven miles south of the park at Triton Cove State Park.

Formerly called “Dose Meadows,” the flat fields of this park were old homestead sites prior to their existence as a park. Old rail beds are still in place where logs were hauled from the mountains down to the water prior to being floated to their destinations (ships and mills around Puget Sound).
