Fort Flagler State Park, Port Hadlock, WA


Fort Flagler State Park is located on an old Coastal Artillery site.  We visited in May 2009 and they had just re-opened after a major remodel.  They have installed full hoookup sites in two of the primary loops.  We had a site just off the beach, with a great view of the water. We mostly like to go up in this area to visit Port Townsend, so we pent Saturady driving aorund checking out Thrift Stores and Yard Sales. Port Townsend was having a prarde and festivities, which we didn’t care to fight the crowd for, so we didn’t spend much time downown.  Port Townsend is a great place to visit, good resturants and plenty of shopping.

Had great weather, so we got to sit out and enjoy the view.  I went flyfishing for Searun Cutthroat Trout on the other side of the park. Got one in about 10" in length, had a few more strikes.  Lots of people were out clamming on the beach.  We took a couple of beach walks, got some driftwood, and had a great time.

Wonderful bakery (The Village Bakery) at the turn-off to the park.  They are only open on Saturday from 8:00 AM untill sold out (usually 2:00 PM or so).  There are also some wineries in the area.  They do mostly reds, so the wife opted not to go to any for tasting, but if your a red fan, check them out and let us know.  We drove up 101 and stopped in Hamma Hamma for seafood.  fresh oysters, clams, mussels, and crab are hard to beat.  Get the seafood, the bread locally, bring your own wine, or get some locally, makes for a great weekend, regardless of weather.
