We spent a few hours walking the Spit area and really enjoyed the experience. The walkway is paved almost to the water. This is the way to the lighthouse although we didn't walk there because of the distance, about 2 1/2 miles but longer than...More

A rather rocky beach, not for seashells nor swimming, but the beauty made up for it. The trail to the beach is manageable for even those who aren't super fit but the 5 mile walk on the beach to the lighthouse wasn't for us weaklings!...More

It’s a short drive from town. It’s a nice walk through the forest on a paved path until you get to the beach. Similar to other Washington beaches but just a long thin stretch of land. I enjoyed it.

This is a great place to walk on the beach. The walk can be short (it's a half mile, down hill from the parking lot/bathroom to the beach) or long (5.5 miles one way takes you to the New Dungeness Lighthouse). Plan ahead if you...More

Lovely campground with very large sites with good tree cover, tables and fire rings. Easy access to the trail that runs along the Strait with views across to Vancouver Island.

The are was not on out “to do” list but decided on the last minute to venture out. A real highlight of our Olympic Peninsula trip.

great place to stroll any amount contemplating the piles of driftwood and spotting birds including eagles. 5.5 miles to lighthouse (one way); if you can make it its a great hike. Nice nature center at trail head with docents.

We didn't see much wildlife but the views of everything and the huge driftwood were incredible sights. If you are in the area then check it out.

I have seen some people who do bike the trail to the spit I don't think it would be advisable. The trail is not that long and is frequented by may people. Also that last hill down to the shore is rather steep and a bike... More
