Once an army fort, there's a lot to bark about at Fort Flagler State Park today! Whether your adventure pup loves hiking, camping or hanging out on the water, this gorgeous park in the northwest corner of Washington will have their tail wagging!
Stretched over 1,469-acres, this forested pupperdise is just north of Seattle on Marrowstone Island. Explore this beautiful habitat along the 7 miles of trails which trek through the trees and on the beach, just be sure to steer clear of designated swimming areas where dogs are prohibited. Take a break at one of the picnic areas scattered throughout the park for a quick snack or leisurely meal.
Got a water dog on your hands? While they can't join you at the swimming beach, your dog can relax while you cast a line and try your luck at catching dinner, or even cruise on a boat while enjoying the great views of Puget Sound, Whidbey Island and Port Townsend.
Make it a vacation and camp out under the stars with your favorite canine. With primitive, standard and full hook-up sites available, there's something for every kind of camper. Vacation houses with all the comforts of home are also available, but unfurtunately, dogs are only welcome at the outdoor campsites. With restrooms, fire rings, and seasonal concessions available, you and your pup are sure to have a blast.
Entrance into the park is by pass only, with daily passes costing $10, and annual passes $30. Additional camping fees also apply. Your dog is allowed in most places throughout the park, but should remain on a leash no longer than eight feet. Always have clean-up bags on hand to promptly pick up after your pooch, and carry enough water to share with your furry pal.
For a day or a weekend, adventure awaits in gorgeous Fort Flagler State Park!
