Dash Point State Park is a 398-acre camping park with 3,301 feet of saltwater shoreline on Puget Sound. The beach provides unobstructed views of the Sound and excellent opportunities for sea-life study. The Dash Point area has been the subject of three survey expeditions since 1800. In the past, the property was called lson Landing, Fairview Beach and Woodstock Beach. The origin of the name “Dash Point” is unclear. In the late 1940s, the McLeod family sold the land to the state of Washington with the understanding the property would be used as a park. The park was dedicated in 1962.

Dash Point: Hidden Retreat from the City
I have enjoyed doing trail runs at Dash Point. There are many miles of trails and challenges to enjoy. I did an overnight stay at one of the beautiful and new cabins. It was on a Wednesday night and it was pleasant and quiet, especially for a place so close to Seattle.
