Camping in the Northwest - From a family who thought they'd share notes
Belfair State Park 
Reservations through Washington State Parks.
Belfair State Park is a 65-acre, year-round camping park on 3,720 feet of saltwater shoreline at the southern end of Hood Canal in western Washington. It is noted for its saltwater tide flats, wetlands with wind-blown beach grasses and pleasant areas for beach walking and saltwater swimming.
Because we like being near Tahuya trails for our Quad and Dirt bike -- We love Belfair.  It is close proximity (20 minutes) from the trails on a decent road.  There are many campers doing the same thing.   The park sits on 3,720 feet of saltwater shoreline at the southern end of Hood Canal.
We like the privacy of the campsites here -- and being amongst nature.  Some of the sites near the water are a lot more in the open, but farther back (we stayed in T7 and T8) they get more private.  However, you get closer to the main road which gets pretty loud with the constant noise.  
The beach here is awesome and there are some great (but wide open, with little privacy) campsites right at the beach.  Nice sandy / rocky beach for wading, and just walking.
There are a lot of fun things amongst this campground including a nice creek to climb down to and skip rocks, a small rock climbing structure, open grassy area and a nice kids playground.  During the warm months -- this public park is quite busy with picnics, sports like volleyball, horseshoes, etc. 
The town of Belfair is only about 10 miles away from the park and has general necessities.... including drive through coffee stands!   Also, there are some great exploration around the water..... we once went in mid October and drove to a nearby Pumpkin Farm about 45 minutes away from the campground that had hay rides, and other festive activities and it was a beautiful drive!
Bikes or No Bikes?
Definitely bikes - as there are paved roads through the park and just riding amongst the campground is worth bringing them. 
  • The Department of Natural Resources Tahuya Multiple Use Area is nearby, with trails for motorcycles, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding and off-road vehicles.  If you head up there -- bring gear to stay there for awhile including food and beverages.  Some even make campfires, bring bbq's, or campers to hang there for the day.   Nice trails, well groomed.
  • Year around camping here is a great feature -- after a certain month though (September) they stop taking reservations.
