Comments:  Concessionaire has firewood for sale during the summer months. Pay phones are next to the park office. All services and supplies are available in the town of Ocean Shores, about one-and-a-half miles south. Horse rentals can usually be found at the Chance a la Mer ocean beach access. Moped rentals are available at various locations in the area. The nearest hospital is in Aberdeen. Ocean Shores has emergency medical technicians.

We used to camp here often when we had the 5th wheel. Good place to get to the coast from Olympia, the grandkids liked it, plenty to do. The wife and I could go into town and get seafood, or eat at one of the resturants. There is also a Casino nearby, but I think they are over priced. The only reason we didn’t use thei s aprk more is that its close to the Pacific Beach Military Recreation Area and we usually went there. At Pac Beach we could rent houses and bring all the kids and grandkids up.
