Sequim Bay State Park
Discover the northern Olympic Peninsula at Sequim Bay State Park!
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 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.
Sequim Bay State Park is a year-round, 92-acre marine camping park with 4,909 feet of saltwater coast in the Sequim "rain shadow," just inside Puget Sound on the Olympic Peninsula.
PICNIC & DAY-USE FACILITIES
The park provides three kitchen shelters, one with electricity, plus 10 sheltered and 15 unsheltered picnic tables. Facilities are reservable.
The upper kitchen shelter is near swings, horseshoe pits, and a tunnel that connects to a baseball field and tennis courts. It can accommodate up to 40 people. Two lower shelters have a view of Sequim Bay. One is small and accommodates up to 10 people. The other can accommodate up to 40 people and has electricity. Park staff recommends carpooling as parking is limited.
