“Camp on the shoreline!”

Set on the shore of Rich Passage, Manchester State Park makes the perfect getaway for day-trippers or Puget Sound campers on a Kitsap Peninsula road trip.   Military and maritime buffs will find intrigue at Manchester, known for the large brick structure that was once a torpedo warehouse. The term “torpedo” was used to describe underwater mines in the early 20th century, when the fort was built to protect the shipyards at Bremerton. Middle Point, as the fort was called, housed an underwater mine field and was a Navy fuel station during World War II. These days, the photogenic building, with its stone fireplace, weathered beamed ceiling and windowless arches, has become a coveted wedding venue, reunion site and picnic spot, against a forested backdrop of maple and Douglas-fir.  Located near Port Orchard, Manchester includes 2 miles of hiking trails, but the park’s main attraction is its 3,400 feet of saltwater shoreline. Kayaking, swimming and diving (bring your own gear) allow visitors to take full advantage of this classic beach park with a view of Bainbridge Island and even Seattle on a  clear day.

Lovely park with so much history around. The beachfront, the views of Puget Sound with Mt. Rainier in the background are great plus there are trails around to explore too. Definitely a nice area for an afternoon stroll or to spend a couple of nights camping.
