Nice walk in shady forest in the summer. Can choose easy or challenging trails. Friendly trail walkers from neighborhood. Nice walk down to the beach.

My daughter brought me to Dash Point and I was thrilled to see that it encompassed both beach and lush forest. It was beyond my expectations and I was able to get some interesting pictures. It was perhaps one of the prettiest areas I've visited...More

We went to Dash Point State Park in Washington. Its a nice state park for bikers, hikers, picnickers, campers, and others. It is located along the water front.

Although close to major residential and industrial areas, a marvelous opportunity to be in natural growth and enjoy the forest and waterfront. Delightful experience.

If you need some fresh air and want to walk in a safe place with paths, this is a great stop. There were bikers, runners, and strollers. Do your thing at your own speed.

We went right after a storm and a high tide. It was great. Very well kept park with lots of parking and lots to enjoy. In summer great place to take kids to pay in sand and wade.

There really isn't any place to park nearby. It's quite a hike, but there is a park entrance on Hoyt road a bit south of 320th, and you can park there for free and walk down.
