Jarrell Cove is a wonderful marine camping park on Harstine Island. It is literally just down the road from our home so it is a great place to do a shake down on the trailer for the year. They have 2 sites with electricity/water and...More

A very small park with limited walking paths. The paths were full of tree roots so, one was unable to walk and look at the same time. However, it was very quiet and serene, especially down by the boat dock.

Beautiful place right on Puget Sound with good camping spots and a nice place to walk around. It's a beautiful place nested in the woods.

Quite a wonderful little state park off the beaten path. The camp hosts could not have been nicer to our group. The facilities where very modern for a state park. Wonderful stay!

If you are anywhere on the peninsula and want a great camping spot. Harstine Island has it. This park has many boat spots and camp spots too. Clean facilities, bathrooms and showers. Summer time has a camp host.

You might run into a puddle here and there on the trails but most are very accessible and dry enough to walk.
