This park has something for everyone. A playground for small children, areas to BBQ and have gatherings at, picnic tables, and trails to hike. You can hike all the way to the water. Our family had a great time here!

What can be said? It's the Pacific Northwest, so it's beautiful! Priest Point Park is a lovely little get away for a nice, quiet walk, a lunch, or just an opportunity to unwind.

Very nice park. This is a very hilly park. A walk to the beach is a worthwhile hike. The hike back is rather difficult for anyone not a person in shape. The water view is very nice and relaxing. Beautiful forest area.

The best place to go and play in the water is Tolmie State Park. Other sand beaches are mostly private.
