Fort Townsend State Park borders the ocean and is a gorgeous spit for hiking and history buffs. The site is very well maintained, close to town and fun to explore.

Unbelievable trails for walking or biking (mountain). We showed up after the Ranger had left, but you could pick a spot and envelope pay. The RV spots are limited and they were so so. But the drive in (21' and under) spots were awesome! We...More

My husband uses a walker or a power scooter. Is this accessible for him?
