Great place to visit! I live 30-minutes away and take visiting company and friends there, they are impressed every time. Lots of history, beautiful views and if you are into camping a great campsite!

The park with its broad avenues, wrap-around beach, and its fully accessible fort is one of the best in the Pacific Northwest. It will take you at least half a day to get the most enjoyment out of this large retired military base.

The restored military base is an excellent place to have music festivals. We look forward to several throughout the year. Accommodations vary from houses to camping.

Sorry - I don't know their policy about cancellations because I live nearby. Contact them right away though, so someone else can take the spot. They are in high demand I hear.
