The beach is a wonderful place to visit. But the park itself is very old and tired looking. It was designed/built at a time when campers usually set up tents or came in truck campers which didn't require length, or fifth wheel trailers which didn't...More

In the morning, when the low tide is out, it is digging time. Clam digging for some, and the rest just dig for fun. The beach stretches out and you have plenty of room. As the day gets warmer people come in at a steady...More

A wonderful place to wile away a few hours, or a couple days. Walking out across the beach at low tide here is amazing. It goes on and on seemingly forever. The trails around the park a varied and many. Camping is available .

My daughter brought me to Dash Point and I was thrilled to see that it encompassed both beach and lush forest. It was beyond my expectations and I was able to get some interesting pictures. It was perhaps one of the prettiest areas I've visited...More

We went to Dash Point State Park in Washington. Its a nice state park for bikers, hikers, picnickers, campers, and others. It is located along the water front.

There really isn't any place to park nearby. It's quite a hike, but there is a park entrance on Hoyt road a bit south of 320th, and you can park there for free and walk down.
