    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. After a recent remodeling, the gaming machines are the most fun and up-to-date. Whether you win a jackpot or not, a vacation at Skokomish Park at Lake Cushman is always a win-win situation.

    Fall Camping

    Decided to book a mid October 2 night stay and went to the reservation site. It showed almost every site reserved for mid week, which seemed unusual for the time of year. Found one in the lower campground that was available so reserved. Arrived at check in time and arrival center/store was closed so followed directions and put in the payment for the second night as directed. Drove to the site space and there were only 2 other RV's in the campground. And a large 5th wheel was in our reserved spot. So the lesson is don't trust the web reservation system. But the stay was nice and quiet with so few campers... We did get a call we had not paid for the second night so tried calling their number but eventually gave up and left a message as after 3 tries could never reach a rep. So far haven't heard anything else so must have been resolved.

    RV site review

    We made our reservations online, we were told that our RV would fit (42' long). The site we selected we was a pull through site, but we could not due to the tight curve of the site and a large stump on the inside as well as the 6" drop off the outside of the curve. The other thing was the sewer connection for this site was 8" above ground and was uphill from my sewer trap. I walked the campground and most of the sites had sewer traps that were 90 degree elbows instead of being flat on the ground and raise anywhere from 2"-8". One other note is that there is NO cell service other than right at the welcome center. The campground overall was nice, beautiful lake and many hiking trails. Very wooded so nice from that perspective.

    Terrifying Visit

    We were contacted the first evening of our stay by a tribal cop who did not know the burn ban had been lifted. No party in our camp had been drinking and we were all having a wonderful time visiting. A female cop threatened us for having a camp fire at the same time all other camp sites had fires as well. After a brief verbal exchange the female cop began using numerous times the 'F' bomb word. Obviously it stunned all of us as well as campers next to us and across the road. After a statement was made about her filthy language, the guest under whose name the site was registered was threatened to be hand cuffed and taken to the police department. We had many names of campers who were and will write a complaint letter as to the cop's unprofessional and frightening behavior. We were told the license number to our RV will be recorded and not permitted future entry into the campground. Please believe all of us... we will never return to this campground again or until the rogue cop is terminated. The overt and filthy verbal abuse of police power was an insult to the many professional police officers who put themselves in harms way to protect us on a daily basis. This was a terrifying experience and one we continue to talk about.

    Autumn camping & boating

    Skokomish Park at Lake Cushman is the perfect choice for a fall get-away. There were a dozen or so RV campers, the campground was not full, so it was quiet and peaceful. We took our 16' boat and the launch ramp is nice - well maintained, wide, easy to put the boat in & out. We caught a Kokanee! Autumn is the best time to enjoy Skokomish Park at Lake Cushman.
