Kitsap County requested the inclusion of "memorial" in the park's name at the time of original land donation from the county. The name reflects the wishes and efforts of the original members of the Vinland Community Club, who sought to establish a "North Kitsap Memorial Park" in honor of Henry Brown. Mr. Brown was the person who first proposed dedicating the land for community use. He also established the first permanent buildings on the site.
The park has 21 tent spaces, 18 utility spaces, four cabins, one dump station, one restroom with showers and one ADA-accessible restroom. Water and electric hook-ups are at sites 1 to 18.
