Join us for what we hope is the Puget Sound version of the Wetwesties Reunion held 2 weeks later in Union OR. For much of the year Hood Canal is wet and grey, but late August is prime time for visiting this jewel of an area. If you can plan an extended trip you can take advantage of the Olympic National Park and the many recreational opportunities.

Dosewallips State Park is a 425-acre, year-round camping park with 5,500 feet of saltwater shoreline on Hood Canal and 5,400 feet of freshwater shoreline on either side of the Dosewallips River. The park is unique in that it offers both freshwater and saltwater activities. All camp areas are grassy and located in scenic, rustic settings.

We camp in Group Camp 1 (Meadow Camp) which is - as named - a large meadow that can accommodate up to 80 people - pitch tents or park RV on a large grass field. There is a big campfire pit, a covered eating area, several picnic tables and a barbeque. Water and primitive toilets are available. Flush toilets and hot showers are elsewhere in the park within walking distance. A trailhead and the Dosewallips River are easily accessible.

Distance from Seattle is 125 miles via the Tacoma Narrow Bridge, Port Orchard and then North over the Hood Canal Bridge - or - southwest to the southern tip of the Hood Canal. The shortest drive is via the Edmonds Ferry and is 68 miles over the Hood Canal Bridge. Portlanders have and easy 110 miles up I-5 to Olympia then another 62 miles along Highway 110 up the beautiful drive along Hood Canal. For Shelton, Port Orchard, Pt Townsend , etc this is in your back yard. With that in mind - I AM LOOKING FOR A LOCAL WHO CAN CO-HOST and be able to work with Park staff if needed beforehand.

Potluck is Saturday evening. As always bring firewood for the group campfire.
