Hiking Dungeness Spit at the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge is a can't-miss activity for adults and children and a real bargain with its $3 entry fee for families. After taking the steep stairs down from the nearby parking area, the massive sand spit beckons with...More

We went in November so not many animals to see. We did see an eagle right in the parking lot though that was amazing!

Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge offers trails along cliff areas and a walk along the beach of the spit to a lighthouse that is about 5 miles away one way....so plan your time and watch for tides. There is camping in the trees during the summer...More

Went to visit this area because it was homesteaded by some ancestors. What a lovely old growth forest and beautiful setting.

I didn't go to the end of the Dungeness Spit, but the Trail itself through the forest to the beginning of the Spit is tremendous. Easy walking. Beautiful trees and ferns.

Dogs are not allowed on the trail, unfortunately. I think they are allowed in the camp and picnic areas.
