Big park with great hiking trails. Wonderful place to bring a dog. On a sunny day from the lighthouse, you can see Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, and the Olympics all from one point! Parking is a little tricky and my only complaint could be that,...More

I absolutely LOVE coming here to take my clients for photos. There are so many great spots for photos, including fields, trees, old buildings, beach and pathways. You could spend an entire day here!
