History of the Area
"Sequim" is a Native American word for "quiet waters." Two natural overlapping sandbars protect the bay waters from the rough waves and currents of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. These same sandbars also protected the area from discovery by the first three expeditions that ventured into the Puget Sound.

July 13 Favorite Crab Fishing place by Theresa Cooper
We have camped in several of the tent sites, as well as the group site. Beautiful campground, great walking trails, boat dock and small marina for overnight boat storage. Great place for crab fishing with a boat, oyster, clam digging etc. My children and grandchildren love to see all of the sea life under the docks!
