Kayak Point County Park

Park with camping, hikes, and beaches.

Kayak Point Park is about an hour drive north of downtown Seattle. This makes it an easy day trip for the whole family, or you could take advantage of the many options for an overnight stay. Kayak Point is accessible for old fashioned tent camping, as well as RV space. If you’re not interested in either of these options, there is also a very cool Yurt Village. Yurts are circular dome tents with more of a structure than a regular camping tent and allow for much more living space. If you are adventuring with a group, you might want to check out one of these Yurts for the night. Kayak Point is a favorite place to watch sea life swim by. You’ll want to bring binoculars to see the harbor seals, (who can be curious and might give you a show) and sometimes even whales off the end of the fishing pier. During low tide remember to look down at your feet where you can see, and even hear anemones splashing water from under the sand. Besides fishing you’ll often see folks with buckets digging up shellfish such as clams. This is a very active beach during nice weather on weekends, and a calm peaceful escape otherwise.
