Dosewallips River Campsites Relocation

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

State Parks used this grant to replace 29 standard campsites at Dosewallips State Park with 12 utility campsites and a new associated ADA-compliant comfort station. The former 29 campsites were located downstream of the Highway 101 bridge and flood regularly, making them unusable in certain seasons and requiring extensive staff time for clean-up. The 12 new utility sites are located in the former group camp area, and the group camp will be relocated to another area of the park. The new utility sites are designed for usefulness into the shoulder seasons and winter and to accommodate a longer RV that may be pulling a vehicle or boat. The new comfort station is ADA compliant with eight flush toilet stalls and four showers. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is camping.
