Potlatch State Park Campground – Hoodsport, WA

Potlatch State Park | RVBuddy.com

My husband and I camped at Potlatch State Park Campground last summer and really enjoyed ourselves. They have a relatively new section of campground that was formerly owned by Minerva Beach that has more RV hookup sites, and if you head up the hill there are some great tent camping sites which is what we did.

The Park straddles Highway 101 and is very easy to access.

The park was very clean. There were Port-A-Potties up by where we camped, but it was just a short walk down the hill to normal bathrooms. There is a coin-operated laundromat in the parking lot and pay showers in the bathrooms in the older campground area.

The day-use area has great waterfront access to Hood Canal. There is a large grassy area with scattered picnic tables and grills. There is a reservable shelter with picnic tables underneath that looks like it would be great for a summer group get together.

You can dig for clams and oysters when they are in season, just make sure you have a shellfish license and shuck the oysters on the beach because you are not allowed to take the shells. Potlatch is a popular site for scuba diving due to its easy descent.

Potlatch is only 3 miles south of Hoodsport which has a winery and some cute local shops. Lake Cushman is also a short drive away. It’s a great park for those wanting to visit Hood Canal!

  1. We have always enjoyed camping here for years. It is truly a fisher persons dream rv camp, the hosts are wonderful and keep you supplied with wood as needed and quick to respond if something is awry (almost never is except for a few late night campers returning from the bars in Hoodsport after they close and that only happened once).
