DOSEWALLIPS STATE PARK

Historical replicas of logger wall tents have been erected within Dosewallips State Park. These are luxury camping tents, serving as an alternative to traditional camping. The tents have complete furnishing, unlike many of the logger, miner and early camper tents. The tents are placed 200 feet from the Dosewallips River, nestled in a maple forest. Summer visitors are able to hear the rush of the river, fall visitors see a colorful display of leaves, and in the spring, there is the smell of rhododendrons blooming.

The 16x14 white tents have a front wood porch and locking door. There is a bunk bed and futon, which combined sleeps five. Lights, a table and heater complete the equipped tents. Showers and toilets are nearby. The tents rent for $35 nightly.

Breathtaking views of Hood Canal and Olympic mountains, hiking and biking on a five mile stretch of beach, boating, fishing, swimming, horseshoe pit, diving, clamming, crabbing, oysters, bird watching, mushrooming.

VARIOUS COMMENTS :

......Dosewallips means 'place of thieves'...

....Also called the TERRACE LOOP TRAIL this 1.4 mile trail begins and ends 100 yards from the Dosewallips Ranger Station on the Dosewallips River trail. The Dosewallips River is accessible along this trail.

....About 2.5 hours from Seattle (we're using the Bainbridge Ferry and Hood Canal Bridge again) is DOSEWALLIPS (Dose - E - Wall - Ips). This is the take off point for the mountains that can be seen on the horizon from downtown Seattle and some of the wonderful river valleys and basins behind them. It is also the starting point for the Anderson Pass/Enchanted Valley route.....

The only time the world beats a path to your door....is when you're in the bathroom. spacer Elder Bob's site button
