For example, the park is well known for its wild, native rhododendrons and clear-day views that oversee the Olympic Mountains and Hood Canal. Some of the exciting activities that visitors to the park like to participate in include camping, boating, hiking, bicycling, crabbing, swimming, water skiing, beachcombing, oyster gathering (in season), fishing, windsurfing, and scuba diving.
The park also has several amenities that serve all visitors to the park. Some of these facilities include a picnic shelter, group camp, 52 standard campsites, kitchen shelter (with electricity), picnic area, beach access, garden, accessible paths, gazebo, and ball fields. Just like most other Washington state parks, dogs are definitely allowed into Scenic Beach State Park although there are some rules that dog owners will need to be aware of.
Some of the important regulations to remember are as follows. Dogs are not allowed into all areas of the park, and it is the responsibility of the dog owner to be aware of the areas that they can visit and the areas that are out-of-bounds to dogs. In areas of the park that dogs are allowed to venture into, the dog should be put on a leash that has a maximum length of eight feet. Furthermore, the dog owner is expected to keep their dog well-behaved and to clean up after their pooch.
