Looking to enjoy the quiet stillness of Washington’s beaches in the cold months? Dash Point State Park is a beautiful choice set just south of Seattle near Tacoma. Its pristine location on Puget Sound makes it a no brainer for a day of taking in nature.

The park has 461-acres for camping and day-use including 3,301 feet of saltwater shoreline with unobstructed views of Puget Sound. Here you can take in the beautiful sites of PNW nature and study the sea-life around you.

During warmer months, it’s a popular spot for water activities like canoeing and kayaking.

Those looking for something more can stay in cabins at the park. There’s also accommodations for RVs and individual campsites with a large communal fire ring.

So what are you waiting for? Make the drive this weekend and take in the views of the PNW.
