Description

If your dog is interested in military and maritime history, a visit to Manchester State Park is a must. A recreational area of historical significance, this 111-acre property is home to what was once a torpedo warehouse and concrete casement center. Your pooch will be impressed when they find out this fort also protected the shipyards at Bremerton.  

Situated in the coastal region of Rich Passage, Manchester State Park is quite picturesque and offers many great recreational opportunities. Your buddy will love strolling along one of the furrific trails. Wander around the interpretive nature trail, or explore the small network of pathways by the historical Battery Mitchell and Mining Casemate. Since none of the trails are very long, you may even have time to follow them all.  While roaming around the park, remember to carry plenty of water for both you and your four legged buddy.

Two legged visitors can also choose from kayaking, swimming, scuba diving, camping, bird watching, and wildlife viewing. There are even horseshoes pits and a volleyball court. And, don’t forget to bring your lunch along. Not only does the park have three dozen picnic tables, an old torpedo warehouse has been converted into a group site. So bring the whole fam and have a  paw-ty!

Access to the grounds is provided with the payment of the $10 daily fee or upon presentation of a Discover Pass. If you live in Washington, seriously consider investing in a Discover Pass. For just $30, you and your doggo will have an entire year of access to the state parks. That’s a woofin’ great deal!

Restrooms are located throughout the park. Help keep Manchester State Park smelling fresh by carrying some clean up bags and stooping and scooping. Make no mistake, this park will make your pup one happy hound!
