Dash Point State Park

Dash Point State Park is a 398-acre camping park in the Pacific Northwest with 3,300 feet of saltwater shoreline on Puget Sound. The beach provides unobstructed views of the Sound and lots of opportunities to observe wildlife such as Coyotes, Foxes, Ducks, Eagles, and of course, plenty of marine animals too. The upper trails of the park have beautiful views of Maury and Vashon Islands, the Olympic Mountains, and spectacular sunsets.

The park has 114 standard campsites, 27 utility campsites, one dump station, four restrooms and six showers. Maximum site length is 40 feet (may have limited availability). The park offers a group camp that accommodates up to 80 people. The camp features a large open area and 12 smaller group sites within the camp. Fees vary with size of the group.

  • Open May 13 - September 7
  • 8 am - dusk for day use
  • Camping check in is 2:30 pm, checkout at 1pm

  • Handicap parking is provided in the campground and at the beach. Picnic areas and most campsites are wheelchair accessible.

The Dash Point area has been the subject of three survey expeditions since 1800. In the past, the property was called lson Landing, Fairview Beach and Woodstock Beach. The origin of the name "Dash Point" is unclear. In the late 1940s, the McLeod family sold the land to the state of Washington with the understanding the property would be used as a park. The park was dedicated in 1962.

Dash Point State Park is located at 5700 Dash Point Road, Federal Way, Washington. From I-5 take exit 143 (320th st.) to 47th st. and turn right. Turn left on Highway 509/Dash Point Road and follow signs about two miles to the park.
