Sequim Bay State Park

RVing To Sequim Bay State Park

Sequim Bay State Park is home to 92 acres of marine camping with 4,909 feet of saltwater coast in (What they call) the Sequim “rain shadow,” on the Olympic Peninsula. Are looking for a beautiful RV Destination that is open year round? If you are, this is the place to be.

History

“For the past century, the word “Sequim” was believed by many to mean “quiet waters.” In 2010, a tribal linguist who is an expert in the study of dying languages determined the translation was wrong. The correct translation of “Sequim” is a “place for going to shoot,” a reference to the Sequim-Dungeness Valley’s once great elk and waterfowl hunting.” -WA State Parks

 

Park features

Sequim Bay has 48 tent spaces, 15 utility spaces, three restrooms (one ADA), and three showers (two ADA). A few sites can accommodate RVs up to 45 feet! The dry camping areas can accommodate RVs up to 30 feet. There are two loops of forested camping sites  and some are very near the water.

Set in one of the driest micro-climates west of the Cascade Mountains, Sequim Bay hosts a stretch of the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT), a 120-mile, multi-use recreation trail that extends from Port Townsend west to the Pacific Ocean.

Approximately half those trail miles are paved, while the remaining miles are unimproved or under construction. The trail crosses a high bridge completed in 2016 to allow salmon passage in the stream below. Trail users will enjoy passage over the smooth, graded span.    
The park also is a hit with the boating crowd. Big docks, offshore moorage and RV sites that accommodate watercraft make Sequim Bay a particularly boat-friendly park.

Ramblewood an Environmental Learning Center, is a rustic retreat center with a commercial kitchen and sleeping space for 60 people. A lighted underpass beneath Highway 101 leads to tennis courts and ball fields on the south side of the park. Visitors can head to nearby Sequim and Port Angeles for picnic gear, shopping sprees, lattes and restaurant meals.” -WA State Parks.” -WA State Parks
