28 RV Parks near Brinnon, Washington
Sep 2017 - $30.00
It's a small but clean and quiet park. It does border Hwy 101 so the rvs on that side will have some traffic noise. Our site was plenty big and wide for our big rig with some great shade too. The restrooms and showers were clean. We used this as a base camp to tour the Hood Canal area. There are good restaurants in Brinnon and Quilcene. The small store at the office was very handy too for last minute items. - southwestgal

Small campground right on US 101 with friendly owners and close to the water.
We stayed here as part of a Habitat Care-A-Vanner build team and the group was able to get spots next to each other. Ours was a 50-amp site backing to 101 - it was somewhat loud with traffic noise but quieted down around 11 PM so we slept good. The sites are tight but there is a nice common area, a decent little store, and it is a short ride to Brinnon or Qulicene for dinner :).
The first day we were here (Sunday) we had no cable tv but the owner had us back up within an hour of us letting them know. We quickly learned the owners will do whatever they can to make your stay decent. We will definitely stay here again. - Bay Area Early retirees

3 nights (Thurs, Fri, Sat). Site 54 has partial hookups, mostly shade, green lawn (most of the park lawn is dead this time of year), and loud road noise which does calm during the night. Many huge groups of campers; found it hard to believe that the limit of 8 people per site was being enforced. Enjoyed the river access and the trails. - flaymingyon

July 16,17 Sunday/Monday Dosewallips State Park on the Hood Canal, Site 31, hookups, no hookups, $45, 140 sites This park is located on route 101 along the Hood Canal and the Olympic National Park to the west of it. We had met many campers that love this park and highly recommended it. There are sites with hookups in a grass field and no hookups in the field and in the woods. This is a big rig friendly park. One has to drive under 101 to reach one of the no hookup loops but many of those sites are right on the river where one can swim. The trail to Hood Canal is also on that side of 101 and to get out to the canal is a long trek especially if you are carrying anything to dig for oysters and clams. You must have a license and there is a limit on what you can catch. Traveling on route 101 along the Hood Canal is a beautiful drive. Nice stay! - gsnakehill

First time staying at this park and we were very pleased with our site. We had shade at the site and it was appreciated as a few of the other sites in our wheel were in direct sunlight. A short walk takes you to the Hood Canal where eagles and many other land and sea creatures abound. Also well marked hiking trails beginning and ending right from the park. We are sure to return but it appears reservations are a must. - Rich1 -_

Folks tethered to electricity and full utility sites are really missing some great camp sites. Scenic Beach offers private, shaded sites that you just can't find other places. Each site is surrounded by tall trees, and an understory of bushes, so you can hardly see or hear your neighbors. It is above Hood Canal, with an equal number of back in and pull thru sites, but as it's in the hills, not all the sites are level. There is a dump site. Also, if you don't have reservations, you need to pay at the entrance which is quite a hike. Even though its an extra $8. I would recommend reservations just for that reason alone. There are a few trails and a small beach within walking distance. I want to go back in May when the rhododendron are in bloom. It must be spectacular. - Desertthorn

This is an outstanding campground. There are no utilities in the campsites, but there is potable water and a RV dump station. The camp is located on the north end of the beautiful Hood Canal. During clear weather, the rocky beach has a spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains. The campsites vary from private to very private. Our site was totally private and deep in the lush dappled sunlight of cedar and fir trees. There are two good playgrounds for kids. Many sites are small and somewhat uneven, but they work for small and moderate RVs. Pull-through sites would fit all but the largest bus type RVs. We were there on Memorial Day weekend, and the campground was full. Fellow campers were generally quiet, and all noise was done by 10 PM. I would happily return. - SeaTeacher

The Office and the C.G are 300' away with the HWY between them. No Interent in the C.G and very poor at the office. Only one pit toilet for 12 RV sites and 15 tent sites at the C.G. - summerdude

We reserved 4 nights here and was very disappointed. It turned out to be nothing more than a vacant lot with hook ups and an (unmaintained) portapoty at one end. Most of the other people that was staying there looked like lowlifes. There were trash piles throughout the park. No signs of any kind of maintenance at all. The RV park was across the highway and about 50 yards down from the resort where you needed to go to use a real bathroom or shower. They were dirty and lacked toilet paper or paper towels. Again unmaintained. While checking in we got the feeling that they could careless and we were just a nuisance. Very unfriendly. - richnjoy

Great spot for Elks members only. Can't beat the price. 30amp and water only. No onsite dump but there are clean restrooms (no showers). Very friendly folks! And great view from the lodge. - Ridingwithclyde

This is an Elks members park.
The grounds are beautiful! It was quiet and peaceful here, we ended up extending our stay.
Water and 30 amp only.
Free dump at the fairgrounds about 3 miles away (hard to find).
Be sure you follow directions carefully to the lodge... Pine RD NE.
The ferry from Bremerton to Seattle is about 8 miles away, but easy access.
We would stay again. - Edwards-JV

Nice location, gravel surface, sites not too spacious but we had no one on either side of us for the 3 nights we stayed there. A couple of non-Elks groups used the picnic facilities adjacent to the RV parking but they were gone by dark. Friendly staff in lodge. Water and electric at site but no dump. Couldn't get level on Site #9 so chose #8 instead. - RVtravelers2

This "Park" has gone down hill. Things look nice on the surface, good landscape and clean facilities. But what you don't see is the problem; there is a driveway between the RV park & a rock quarry, guess what, they slam landscape sized rock around with heavy equipment both day and night, starting as early as 6AM! They also think it's funny to jake brake & honk coming & going! And if the earth quakes they make don't get you, the noise from the highway you are literally backed up to by maybe will keep you awake! Oh, did I mention the rock quarry NOW SELLS FERTILIZER, fish and all types of manure, as advertised, so if you are lucky enough to camp here between March and thru the summer you will get a big whiff of well, you guessed it, POOP! Some days it sour, (you DO NOT want to sit outside) other days it's fishy, and others, well just poop! Oh yes, and rates just went up too, so monthly rate from May thru October runs $1200 per month! Don't worry though, it goes down in the winter but then you pay electricity which runs right around $200! As for customer service there is NONE, sure you can leave a message and they might get back to you, maybe even pour on a bit of sugar to get you, but once you get in, complete JERKS! They do not have a good maintenance team, they juryrig things and you get power surges. SO definitely use a surge protector. For long-terms stays, it's a month in advance, even during peak season when they charge by the week, however, the $1200 is due the 1st of every month. This isn't a resort! There is nothing more than 3 washer and dryers, a pool room (cue and ball) that can only be used when office staff is in or you've reserved the space. You have to cross a major highway (Bainbridge Island Ferry Traffic, ALL DAY) to access the pool room and laundry. That's all on the mobile home park side of the highway. Also this park in on a reservation so they don't care if things are up to code. There is NOTHING here for kids, unless they want to smell pot smoke! All spaces are back-in. The only good time to stay is Winter, you will have to pay between 650-750 plus nearly $200 for electric. There really is NOTHING 100% nothing to do for children. It's good for a place to sleep, and go. This place charges like a resort, they got greedy and now many if not most all long-term tenants have gone. - PNWBridges

As mentioned in other reviews, this park is right along a very busy road. It's the corridor to the Bainbridge Ferry to Seattle. That said, we found the park to be immaculate. Our site backed right up to the road and though we heard the road noise it wasn't a huge impact. Satellite hooked up, good Verizon signal, and wifi was adequate. - SHIPM8

Fresh water hook up at ground level within 4-5 inches of sewer dump and lower than sewer dump. Toilet paper on ground around hookup. Coincidentally we ended up very ill a few days later. Can't believe the city approved it. Never, ever seen anything like it. There is a busy highway between RV park and office/registration. Very difficult to cross and turn on to highway. Some of the campers very rude. Wifi didn't work and was told it was out for a full week recently. The wifi connection provided didn't even show up as an choice. - Rebalynn

Kitsap is a small, relatively out of the way park and has an amazing view of Hood Canal from the day use side (and maybe, just maybe an SSBN transiting the passage to the Naval Base). That said, it has some drawbacks for those looking for a 'resort' experience. Google maps doesn't adequately show that the turn to Park Road is 20 yards BEFORE the stop light (by the gas station), so be prepared for your left turn on Hwy 3 from Bremerton. The road is narrow, and our 35ft Class A barely stayed on pavement when backing into our space, doing so at night was bothersome. Once in our spot, you realize just how tightly-packed they are. Our neighbors fire ring was four feet from our bedroom slide and the back end of every rig near us was at, or in, the tree line. We had a six inch gap between our RV and our Jeep, and about as much to the road. There was plenty of parking across the field near the day use area, but it's 'across the field'. Most sites appeared to be level, clean (except the dog waste from our neighbors Lab) and were quiet. Despite what looked like great signals from the DTV Antenna App (six towers within 25 miles), we only had channels 13.1-.4 with the OTA antenna. We set up our Dish Network Tailgater and placed it on our Jeeps roof (due to the lack of room), picking up only the 110 bird. It may have been better from our rigs roof, but since I could watch the NASCAR race and Seahawks we didn't test it. Our Sprint phones swung between 3 bars of LTE to 3G depending on where in the RV it was (drivers seat or bedroom) and service was slow (2Mb/.5Mbps) when it was rainy versus 12Mb/3Mbps when it was sunny. Other services may vary. Overall, KSP is a worthwhile visit, and is easier to get a reservation at than other parks which see more tourists and weekenders coming from Canada. As always, your enjoyment depends on what you're there for. - NavyStore

This is the second WA State Park we've camped at on this trip and it will be the last. The best I can say for it is that it's far superior to the last one but that isn't saying much. The park itself is nice, and the restrooms/showers are clean and bright. Didn't use so can't comment further. There is a nice view of the canal from the bluff at the west end of the park and you can follow a path down to the water edge. Depending on the tides, there may or may not be a gravel beach area there.
The tent sites are nicely shaded and separated and most would accommodate smaller rigs if you don't need hookups. But the RV area is mediocre at best. The pads are gravel/dead grass and not all level. They differ in width. Ours was so narrow that we had to walk sideways to get past the picnic table to our door. There is no shade, and no privacy with the sites all in a row close to each other.
We paid $93 for two nights for a FHU site with fees and taxes. That is grossly overpriced for what you get IMO. (In 23 states I think the only place we paid that sort of price for a state park was in CA, and EVERYTHING there is overpriced! WA needs to take a look at New Mexico. NM is a much poorer state, but their state parks are among the nicest we've been to and the top price for a FHU site is only $18. Closer to WA, OR State Parks are much nicer and slightly less expensive.)
Wouldn't stay here again unless I had to be in the area and there was nowhere else available. - Pdxjoanne

This is a smallish campground at the tip of the Kitsap Peninsula, within shouting distance of Seattle (1.5 hours, including the ferry ride). The location is wonderful, on the bluff above a beautiful rock beach and the Hood Canal. In season, there's oystering and clamming. The downside here is there's a pavilion that shares a parking lot with the campground, which is used for events. There were weddings there both days that we were there, and the camp host said that during the summer, there are weddings daily. One of the weddings was fine, but the other one had loud music for several hours that we could hear from our site. The music stopped promptly at 9:30 pm, so it was quiet at night, but I value my quiet, and wouldn't come back for this reason. The campground is divided into two loops. Sites 1-18 are for RV's, sites 19-38 have no hookups, and are mostly too small for anything larger than a van. Sites 1-3 are 50A power and water. Sites 4-18 have full hookups. Most of the sewer hookups were slightly uphill from the parking pad. All of the sites were back-in, perpendicular to the road. The turnarounds were pretty tight as well. Big rigs would have some trouble here. RV sites were very close together, especially for a state park. All of the RV sites were in full sun, with no trees. The camp host was excellent. Very friendly and helpful. The state parks system is trying out a new type of backflow preventer on all of the hose bibs, and he had to explain how to use it to every single camper as they arrived. I'm all in favor of backflow preventers, but these were pretty hard to use. Water pressure was low, less than 40 PSI. The map shows a dump station, but I never saw it. Good Verizon and AT&T coverage. No OTA TV reception. We don't have satellite, but a neighbor told us he couldn't get satellite because of the trees. Being a state park, there's no wifi or cable. - AnnP
