Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 10 incorrect information
Arrived at Belfair St. Park at noon Thursday 9.June.2016. Spoke to male black-bearded ranger about reservation for next week and found that desired camping site was open. Ranger stated that online reservation could be made at no cost and via phone reservation was $10. Not correct; I wish he would have just taken my money at the time without the additional delay and cost but apparently this easy process is not possible or something. This seems not only silly but actually increases my tent site cost over 50%. Whoever designed this system uses quite sophisticated arithmetic gymnastics to increase the cost of camping in a state park. Quite discouraging really. Seems that a potential patron cannot arrive at a park, find availability of a campsite/tent site and pay cash for it then and there for a future date. What a system...

Our family and friends had a great time as always as we camped for the weekend.I was very upset at the fact of the one car per spot we had more than enough room for 2 cars but were told no.I can see that rul in the very smal camp sites but not in the larger ones that was tuff as there is very little parking in the park..
