    Description


    Bring your appetite to Skokomish Park at Lake Cushman--for salmon and trout, shellfish and for adventure. The Washington park, near Hoodsport, lies on 41,500 feet of shoreline on the clear blue lake and within miles of some of the most popular features of the magnificent Olympic National Forest and Olympic National Park. Select one of 80 RV or tent sites for your special vacation using the online reservation system. It's safe, secure and ready-to-go when you are.

    Encircled by forest, water and mountains, Skokomish Park on Lake Cushman embraces the natural elements. Three boat-launch ramps and easy access to the water result in hours of fun fishing, boating, water skiing, snorkeling and kayaking. Indulge in some shellfish you dig yourself at Hood Canal, the only saltwater fjord in the lower 48 states. The chance to see wolf eels, octopus and other underwater creatures encourages scuba divers to take the plunge. How fast can a shucker shuck oysters? Find out at the annual OysterFest in Shelton, scene of the West Coast Oyster Shucking Championships. If you're in the audience, you can dine on the results.

    Chose a trail that fits your fitness level when exploring the Olympic national park and forest. Depending on where you might wander, you'll see anything from tiny flowers to giant trees to mountain vistas. Within the forest, the High Steel Bridge rises 420 feet above the Skokomish River, a remnant of a logging railroad. The towns of Hoodsport, Shelton, Skokomish and Union offer their own unique charms, shops and events. For entertainment, see if the slots are hot for you at the Lucky Dog Casino.

    Steady Decline

    We have been coming to the bus campground for many years,dating back to when it was a state park. When the tribe first took it over it was all in great condition. Over the past few years, the bathroom cleanliness has gone down hill. The restrooms were terrible, you couldn’t have paid me to take a shower in there. The floor was never mopped only swept and only 3/5 stalls were working. I don’t understand why the sinks can’t be upgraded to hot water for the price you pay to camp there. I LOVE the new grass upgrades to the day use area. Made it much more enjoyable to spend time down at the lake. I think there needs to be a maximum amount of people per campsite to avoid the obnoxious groups of party people that are rude and dangerous to the other campers. Security needs to be making rounds later into the night even during the week. We saw them past 11pm once during the 5 nights we were there. That being said we do love camping there because the lake is amazing and not too far away from home. The park rangers and employees were all very nice.

    Skakomish, not the best start for our camping trip

    We started a two week camping trip in Skokomish. The location is great, as are the sites, but the restrooms were not and quiet time is not upholded. We were at the north loop. A short walk brings you to the lake, which is nice for swimming and floating, you can easily swim across to the south loop beach. Our site was close to the restrooms. Even after cleaning (every night around 7 pm) the restrooms were not very clean, though there was always enough toiletpaper and soap. The showers take quarters, but don't work properly. Sometimes the shower stopped by the time the water got warm, it usually ran only very short. We were told there was quiet time from 10 pm (or was it 11?), but that was something the 'neighbours' apparently didn't know. The talking and loud music remaind till after midnight (several sites). This campsite was the most expensive of the campsites we visited during our camping trip in America, and it was the worst experience. We found the sites in Oregan much nicer (cleaner and with better showers).

    ooookay

    Paid for 3 campsites, for two nights, at $40 a night. Several other campers blast loud music and had fires during the burn ban, but never were asked to put them out. Our neighbors on the second night showed up and literally camped right in my campsite, and had 4 cars and no one said anything. Bathrooms were appalling. One toilette out of order, one clogged, one not even in the stall(!), leaving one available toilette int he women's. Maintenance man working hard, with a packed campground they should be able to pay someone to help him clean bathrooms...
