If you enjoy swimming, kayaking, fishing, and a variety of other water sports, you'll love Dash Point State Park. Located just west of Federal Way on the Puget Sound, and easily accessible from both Seattle and Tacoma, this 461-acre park is all about being on, in, or near the water.
And with an RV-friendly campground that's open all year round, Dash Point State Park is a great place to take the family for a weekend or even a whole week of water-based fun and relaxation. Keep reading to find out how to plan your perfect camping vacation in this beautiful Washington state park.
With miles of excellent hiking and biking trails, there are plenty of reasons why outdoor enthusiasts love Dash Point State Park. However, the main attraction for most visitors to this beautiful destination is the beach.
With more than 3,300 feet of shoreline on the Puget Sound, the park has long been a popular haunt for campers who want to indulge in a wide range of activities. Your first stop when you arrive at Dash Point will no doubt be its sandy beach, where swimmers can escape the heat and beachcombers can search for shells, starfish, and much more.
After that, how you enjoy this pristine location is up to you. Many younger campers get a thrill out of skimboarding along the shallow water that lines the sand flats at low tide. Others prefer to take to a canoe or kayak to enjoy a paddle along the shoreline, getting some exercise while they take in the beautiful water views.
Another popular pastime in the park is fishing. The fishing pier that stretches out into the water can get reasonably crowded during peak periods. Anglers can target salmon and several other saltwater species, so remember to pack your fishing rod and get a recreational fishing license from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
When you've had your fill of water sports (if that's even possible), you might like to head out to investigate the 11 miles of hiking trails that wind their way throughout the park. The five-mile Dash Point Trail is a particular favorite and takes you past some lovely coastal scenery. You'll find several shorter trails near the park's picnic and day-use areas that are suitable for younger hikers to explore with their parents.
Finally, don't forget to bring your bicycle along for the ride. Around eight miles of trails in Dash Point State Park are also open to biking, and they're easy to explore on two wheels. Just make sure you have a map of the trail network so you know exactly where to go.
If you want to camp with an RV at Dash Point State Park, search for a rental RV in Pierce County and reserve a site for a few nights in the park's campground.
Set in a peaceful forest, the campground boasts 114 standard campsites with no hookups and 27 full-hookup campsites. These leafy sites offer all the essential creature comforts and enjoy easy access to the park's four restrooms and six showers. A dump station is also provided for RV campers.
The maximum site length in the Dash Point State Park RV campground is 40 feet, but this is only on limited sites. If you'll be visiting in a big rig, make sure the site you reserve is large enough to accommodate your rental RV.
Leashed dogs that are attended to at all times are permitted in the campground. Visitors looking for alternative accommodations can spend the night in one of the park's cabins.
