“the portal to the Dungeness Spit”

known as the portal to the Dungeness Spit, but there is a lot more to discover before you arrive at the National Wildlife Refuge. Picnic on the bluff, watch the shipping lanes and catch a glimpse of Mt. Baker. Providing the starting point of a great adventure, the Park offers many amenities. The virtues include a 1-mile long scenic bluff trail with picnic sites, a pocket picnic area, a group picnic area with shelter, and equestrian trails. While you are taking advantage of the rain-shadow, allowing about 18 inches of rain a year in the area, take the time to spot the upland birds prior to dropping down to the beach and the shoreline species. Witness Northern Harriers suspended in air while they look to snare a lunch, eavesdrop on a warbler's serenade, and become enchanted with the melancholy cooing of the Mourning Dove. Beyond the camping loops and the group picnic/camp area is the entrance to the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge.  There is a large parking lot and an ADA accessible restroom available year round.  Pets, camping, fires, bicycles, kite flying, and balls/frisbees are not permitted on the Refuge.  A seperate entrance fee is required to access the Dungeness Spit. Camping Info: The campground is open year round.  There are 64 premium campsites, with two camp host sites, located on a bluff above the Strait of Juan de Fuca.  The camp area is in a forested portion of the Park, arranged in two loops. Only Loop # 2 is open October through April.  Please refer to the Park map for specific site descriptions and photos. There are two ADA accessible campsites (# 17 and 60).  Two fully ADA accessible restrooms, with coin-operated showers, are available.  There is no charge for paying campers to use the dump station.  Firewood bundles are available for purchase.  Water faucets are scattered throughout the Park.  There areno utility hook-ups at the campsites, except the host sites.

We enjoyed this camp site very well. Big enough to fit two tents with ease. Not only that. Extremely easy to get too and quiet. The camp host sells wood, 5$ a bundle.

LOVE LOVE LOVE. The hike out is beautiful and so much fun. There is lots to see. My 3 friends and I loved the beauty and the science of it all. The beach is pretty rocky so be sure you are wearing good shoes. A great day getaway from life!
