Kitsap Memorial State Park is a 62-acre state park in Washington State, just north of the town of Poulsbo on the Kitsap Peninsula. Part of the park runs along Hood Canal, providing over 546 yards of shoreline. It’s a beautiful location with activities such as swimming, fishing, bird watching, and hiking in the area.
Just to the south and most easily accessed by ferry is the state's largest city, Seattle. If the ferry is not your thing, the city can also be reached by road via Tacoma. Just over the Hood Canal Floating Bridge is the Olympic National Park, which is definitely worth a visit when RV camping at Kitsap Memorial State Park.
When you book an RV in Kitsap County, the beautiful landscape is opened up for you, with great roads, mountains, and national forests to explore.
The park offers a range of activities, many related to being on the water such as swimming, diving, fishing, and boating. If you want to stay on land, then there is a 1.5-mile hike around the park that takes in the shoreline and some of the camping areas, but it’s an easy trail for any age.
Fishing is not just restricted to catching fish, as the area is well known for its shellfish. Go crabbing, clamming and oyster harvesting along the park's shoreline. Beach fishing and fly-fishing are both popular here, with a wide variety of species available to catch.
For swimmers, there is a saltwater beach and tide pools to explore. Canoes can be launched from the beach to explore the Hood Canal area.
