The campsites are nestled among tall evergreen trees at the confluence of the Dewatto River and White Creek. You can drive or walk the Dewatto River 3/4-mile to the saltwater beach on Dewatto Bay, which is part of Hood Canal. Features camping, hiking, fishing, shellfish.

The campground is a delightful area for families with young children because the river bed is a wonderful area to explore and play in.  The summertime water levels and current are not threatening except to the youngest children. Groves of tall trees protect  and cool on warm days. Electricity is available for 37 campsites; there are 4 maintained toilets; a covered community kitchen area is located centrally to parking.  Here is diagram of the campsites. Don't forget to make reservations.

Did we say 'primitive'? Aside from the 37 campsites with electricity, there is no water system, sewage dump or garbage facilities. Please be prepared by bringing drinking water and removing your waste. Here is a list of our campground rules.

The campground is a park for the whole family to experience and enjoy.  There is fishing, hiking or just sitting back watching the world go by; that is being "Dewattoized".

Dewatto Bay is just a short jaunt down the road, with a public beach area for oyster picking, clam digging or just watching the sun go down behind the Olympics.
