It's all about the location. Though a bit pricey for what you get, the only park if you want to be near Gig Harbor. Downtown is within walking distance, and there is also a trolley that runs frequently, $0.50 per ride or $1 for the day. Albertsons, Costco and Target are nearby and plenty of other stores within a few miles . Breweries abound as do good restaurants. A multi use trail that runs through town and across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge is within walking distance. The park is in the pines, wooded and relaxing. There are basically 2 sections, a lower section with part time campers and upper where longer term campers stay. Interior roads are paved, with sites being gravel/medium sized rocks, no grass and varying in length and width. Parking and leaving is a bit tricky, little tight on the turns. Our site was comfortably long and wide enough for our 36 foot Class A and Jeep. Electric was fine, water pressure average, and cable TV a bit on the weak side. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry. - Vegas Trippers

The park was in an excellent location with easy walking access to the town of Gig Harbor and a short drive into Tacoma. Sites were a wee bit tight side to side for big rigs, but manageable. Staff was great, always helpful. Little bit of road noise if you're towards the front of the park, but not an issue. Laundry was newer and machines all worked. If we had any complaint, it is the rock used on the pads. The gravel is so large dogs fear to tread on it. Absolute ankle twisters. Manageable but not comfortable to traverse. - SVLandYacht

Sites were plenty long and ours was level. Park is larger than it first appears. Several long term units in rear, upper area but not a detraction at all. Park appears well cared for. Nice helpful staff. - granitebaygeezer

Very beautiful, quiet park on the Key Peninsula. Nice hiking and views of the south Puget Sound. The group camp looks awesome, will have to return with the Boy Scout troop. The park is very narrow and winding. I could barely fit thru with my 25' TT and full size truck. Site 78 in particular was a puzzle to get out of, once I got in. It's a pull-thru site that you can't actually drive all the way through with a rig that big. The park seems to be dry-camping only, which is fine if you know that going in. Dump onsite is included in the camping fee. Hikes out to the point and along the beach are easy and fun. The place seems off the beaten path and quiet. - PNWNerd

This is a none service park. It's an older park and fairly narrow to navigate. Sites were not very level. Although it is a beautiful park with very large trees and great trails. It's at the end of the Kitsap Penninsula, it's only 30 min. from Silverdale. I would stay here again. - Landsharkcampers

Penrose Point is a beautiful state park with no hookups. Water spigots are available, and the dump station has potable water. The campground is heavily forested, which grants significant privacy for most campsites. Some of the turns are quite tight and branches can be low, so really big rigs may have a tough time navigating to their site. But, my 25' trailer and 20' truck were fine. The sites are moderately level. Bring some blocks. You will need them. Verizon service was good. Due to the many tall trees, satellite TV service is nearly impossible, and broadcast TV is limited to a few local religious channels. But don't spend your time watching TV! Get out and see the beauty of nature in the Pacific NW. There is no playground for the little ones, but a big grassy day use area is available with a smooth gravel beach which is very shallow and perfect for wading. This is an ideal park for kayaking. The hiking trails are extensive and lovely. This park is fairly remote, yet only 2 hours from downtown Seattle, 0nly 1 hour from Tacoma. A big grocery and several small restaurants are located about 20-25 minutes north of the park. The sites are gravel and dirt, with lots of moss mixed in. Campfire rings and picnic tables are at each site. Though I didn't see every campsite, I recommend avoiding site 50 - the trail to the bathrooms literally goes through the site. I camped in site 16 - a moderately sized pull-through. I was at Penrose on Labor Day weekend. My fellow campers were okay. On one side, two families were loud talkers, but generally fine. On the other side, two families that were quiet and hardly noticeable other than the occasional soft notes of strumming on guitar strings. Pretty typical for a state park on a holiday weekend. Kids on bikes were everywhere. Lots of dogs too. I would happily return to Penrose Point. - SeaTeacher

We had site 74. Dry camping with our toy hauler. Little did we know that the spot is tied to a big open spot for tents! It was perfect. It is close to the bathrooms and parking. Some people may not like it as it is at the entrance to the park but it was not bad at all. Also, you can dig for clams and oysters when the tide is low. Amazing 4th display of fireworks across the water. No fireworks on state parks. Thank goodness. - Shorty S

We had space T24 on the beach loop - 30 amp, water, and sewer. The temperature soared to 92 degrees the first day, but our AC worked fine on 30 amps (we're a 50 amp unit). The pull-through sites could be a little longer for today's rigs, but if everyone parks properly, things seem to fit okay. Friendly staff. - NotSoBadBob

Nice scenery. Some of the pull-throughs are a little sharp for the bigger rigs, but most are okay. We arrived about 1/2 hour before check-in time and had no trouble getting right in. Ranger and staff were pleasant. We stayed in the Beach Loop at a pull-through site with 50 amp, water, and sewer. - NotSoBadBob

This park has a small salt water beach access area. Lots of trails with some of them providing a good workout. Bring lots of leveling blocks as most of the site are not very level. Water, electric, and sewer infrastructure is in very good shape. Verizon wireless signal level was strong enough to provide internet and phone. This is an older park right in a residential area but your really wouldn't know it. - hoppers4

Older park in somewhat rundown condition. As others have said... windy narrow access is not big rig friendly. Lots of "campers" in small tents and autos. First park in 3 years we have felt strangely unsafe. No campground host presence, even though there's a 5th wheel parked in the host spot. He is never "on duty". Bathrooms/showerhouses are being worked on and maybe in the future they will be acceptable. Unlike other campgrounds we have stayed at all across the country, we did not meet any other campers while here. Everybody pretty much keeps to themselves. It is quiet. The traffic around here is terrible with windy roads and aggressive drivers. Not likely to stay here again. - raytwntrvlr

Except for bath/shower bldg, which was cleaned daily, this campground is not well maintained. Sites are small; large rigs had significant trouble navigating the curved roads & trees (this park works for modest-sized rigs); several rundown rigs were using the max 10-night stay; several feral (?) cats. Asphalt pads in disrepair. Thorny wild berry plants encroaching into site & long overdue for trimming. Lots of air traffic noise from nearby Sea-Tac airport. No garbage cans anywhere except at restroom. Beautiful path to Puget Sound shore. Not worth the fee & hassle of the required online reservation procedure. - Taco stand

A wonderful state marine park. Prices have risen pretty high. There are a few sites with good electric and water, but most are without hookups. This is one of the best managed parks in Washington. Hookup sites are $35, dry are $30. There are 22 sites and a group site. Some are quite near Puget Sound. - PALPJL

A beautiful little park on Hartstine Island in Puget Sound about 14 miles from Shelton. The place is just lovely and taken very good care of. There is no dump station- closest one is not near. There is water available and the public rest rooms are very nice. Showers take quarters- 50¢ for 3 minutes. This is not real close to anything, but if you are a boater or want to use your kayak this is a wonderful spot. - PALPJL

We loved it because it is very wooded, lots of room between sites and privacy with lots of bushes and trees. Only 49 sites. Probably not a good spot for a huge motor home. Too many tree branches not huge sites. 2 tokens for showers. Takes a while to get hot water. We really enjoyed our stay. - Ncogneeedo

We just completed our 4th annual weekend at Manchester. We keep going back because we love the large, private, wooded sites and the how incredibly quiet it is! Nice place to walk along the water, watch the ferry come and go explore tide pools. - Mksea

This is a small state park on the water, not far from Seattle. It is clean and well maintained. Privacy is fairly good, with bushes/shrubs between spaces. There is a small beach and a number of hiking/biking trails. I stayed here for a couple of days. - Dan C

I rated this low. For $25/night it had to be the worst WA state park we have ever stayed in. Sites 1-4 are the ones where supposedly the large RVs should be. They are as close together as any commercial campground, so no privacy, noise from your neighbor's generator, etc. There were other pull through sites that would have worked. The website just didn't show they were available for larger rigs, but we saw a RV larger than ours on one of them, That would have been a much more pleasant spot with a little more privacy. $25/night for no hooks and no working dump station felt like it was priced too high. You also get charged extra if you are not a WA state resident and want to make a reservation. Unlike most Western WA state parks, there is little or no vegetation between any of the RV sites in this park. Only sites with any privacy are in the tent or very small class B RV area. You are in the flight path of SeaTac so you do get that noise. On the plus side, nice hiking trail in the park and easy walk to the beach area. Probably not a park we'll stay in again. - DRFink

Nice woodsy park between Seattle and Tacoma. We were in a 45' motorhome and except for one tight turn because of a parked camper sticking out, I was able to navigate thru the park and to the campsite with care, but no problem. The showers do not work (was told by camp host). The place is a bit overgrown. I had to trim a tree as not to scrape going into my site. Site 1 - 4 are best for big rigs. Easy to back in to and easy to pull out. No hookups (as advertised) and a good price. The beach is great. A nice paved path along the waterfront is nice. A good restaurant called Wally's Chowder House a couple of miles away was wonderful. The park is great for camping. Just not very well maintained with the lack of budget in the WA State Park System. - JoeVinnie

The park was extremely well maintained. There were many trails to explore, and the beach access had excellent low-tide pooling for investigation. Our site right next to the creek was wonderful. Detractions included the airline traffic heading to/from Seatac (pretty minor, but noticeable) and the dry camping (offset by running a generator to recharge batteries). - bradrf

Was the start of 2 week trip, and very close to visiting my cousin. Camp ground has a lot of picnicking areas, boat launch, huge dock for boat this place must be busy during the Summer most things are closed for season. Campground is close to town, ferry ride to Seattle. My site had no hook ups, dump station is on your way out. Site was level, with lots of trees. As you have read, some sites are occupied with questions, host was not really around, or helpful during my visit. This is not a destination camp ground, but convenient. - NXTSTOP

Only one site has hook ups. The RV dump station is closed. The park employees are not enforcing the park rules of a 10 day limit. The park employees are not checking sites for who has paid and who has not paid. It appears that a homeless encampment is sqautting on the only site available with hook ups. - MrRigdon-17

We heard a lot about this place from other campers that post on RV Park Reviews. This camp ground was packed to the brim, dogs-kids every where and boy was it noisy--fun as hell to be around. The park offered a lake access below where we were parked and there was a lot of games going on on the beach. We will for sure be coming back again next year. - kara9

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

The pros are the sites are shady and right across the street from a nice beach/walking area and full hookups (30 amp). Good cell here (Verizon, T mobile and ATT were all over 7mbps unboosted). All major stations OTA. The area is gorgeous and there are lots of cute little shops and restaurants to explore. The beach is rocky and has a lot of shells but still nice to walk on. The cons are this campground is tiny. I barely fit into my site. In fact my front tires ate some tree stumps getting in. I have a 34ft class A. I believe they should probably not take anything over 32ft here with the awkward layout and tight turns. The sites are placed haphazardly and people are right up on one another. Everyone has their campfires going and due to the lack of space between sites you can't even have your windows open it's so smokey. I'm not very sensitive to smoke at all and it is out of control here. For the price of $42/night this is high for a state park. I heard there was a larger state park nearby which is better suited for large vehicles. I wish I had done more research on that. - Jessie1975
