Dosewallips State Park Reviews
The beach access area is at least half a mile to the beach at low tide (2pm) from the parking lot. There were quite a number of people as it was a Saturday, but no congested areas as groups were... more »

Our campsite was great but we chose two side by side that had a lot of trees nearby. Some other sites are really exposed so definitely want to check out where you will be. Restrooms were decently clean, tokens available at the ranger station for showers. Nice location to go clamming and collect oysters.
Nice place to harvest oysters near camp grounds. The oyster harvesting beach might be difficult to find. Take the left just after the gas/convenience store and before you turn right to get the camp grounds. We saw a lot of people around that store trying to find the way there. There is a river near the camp grounds. The restrooms are well maintained with a shower room as well. Water taps are easily accessible as well. You can buy firewood in the ranger station, that costs $6. Be careful which driving around the Park (speed limit is 5m/hr) as kids will be running and cycling on the road. (I hadnt noticed that and got warning from the park ranger). Beautiful place to spend some good family time or oyster harvesting date camping. Have fun. Lastly Don't forget your Discovery pass 😊
