  • Faye Bainbridge Park is a fantastic place for a fun day trip or overnight camping. The view of Seattle and the Cascade Mountains is unparalleled! The RV spots are very nice and level as are the campin...  more »
  • The beach is littered with driftwood, not the small items, but the very large items that have washed ashore from storms. We really enjoyed a 2 mile walk and recommend it for anyone.  more »

  • We stayed in the cabins at Fay Bainbridge Park Tuesday-Friday, mid June. The cabins although small give the allusion of being larger due to the very open floor plan. We rented cabin 1 and 2 to accommodate our family of 7. Cabin "camping" offers the feeling of the great outdoors without actually sleeping in a tent, I am 100% converted to cabin camping! Outside of the cabins we enjoyed coffee on the deck and evenings by the fire pit. We had a fantastic time spent on Bainbridge Island, the beaches are well kept, the town is lovely.
  • Nice Rocky beach. good for kids. Lots of driftwood and the Sound was way enough to give you the ocean feel.
