If you love the Hood Canal’s majestic, captivating beauty, you may already be fan of Belfair State Park.

But have you seen the park lately?

If not, it’s high time to enjoy Belfair’s bevy of new visitor amenities.

The park is better than ever, says Ranger Joel Pillers, South Sound Area Manager.

“We got some much needed-attention, and it all came at once,” Pillers says. “Belfair definitely got a facelift.”

Check out some of this well-loved park’s upgrades!

Welcome station

At Belfair, greetings now come with room to breathe! The old welcome station was … a bit small.

“If you wanted to leave the office, you had to have three people stand up and get out of your way,” Pillers says.

Start your stay at the modern lobby of the new welcome station, which is better able to accommodate Belfair’s many guests. While you’re at it, buy a bundle of firewood for that campfire later. Mmmm…s’mores!

Belfair's campsite upgrades mean you'll have more room to recreate — and more privacy, too!

Campsites

Improving the look and feel of Belfair’s campsites is an ongoing project. The Main Loop is completed and looking spectacular. The overall number of sites was reduced to allow for wider sites, easier access and a nice, flat place to put your tent. New native vegetation planted between sites helps make your camping experience more private.

Additonally, bathrooms were upgraded and a modern changing station added so you can get cleaned up after exploring the creeks, wide lawns and shore!

Traveling in an RV? Enjoy all the comforts of home with new 50 amp electric hookups in the Main and Tree loops. Beach Loop hookups are 30 amp.

Room to roam, room to rest and room to recreate! The new cabins at Belfair are a great place to spend the night!

Cabins

Double the cozy! In addition to the four cabins in the park’s main loop, Belfair recently added four spacious ADA-accessible cabins within sight of the shore. Warm and woodsy, each cabin sleeps up to five happy campers. And all come with a picnic table and fire ring just outside the door for dinner around the campfire while you listen to the lapping of the waves.

Now through March, take advantage of lower rates and crowds!  Shoulder and winter season rates are lower than in the peak season. Availability is also better. These cabins still have many open days, even on the weekends, so book one today! If you find you like it, get a jump on summer and reserve your spot, which you can do up to nine months in advance. Main Loop cabins also have air conditioning, and cabin C1 is pet friendly.

Insert your party here! The new kitchen shelter at Belfair is a fun event space with doors that open wide on all sides —or stay closed if the weather is not cooperating!

Kitchen shelter

Having a reunion or party? Check out Belfair’s airy, spacious new kitchen shelter on the park’s reservations page. It accommodates up to 70, has electricity and makes a great event space! The shelter’s wide doors slide open on all sides to let in the fresh salt air. Or, if it’s raining, keep them closed enjoy the views of the shore from behind the shelter’s wide windows.

Belfair is still classic western Washington recreation and camping at its best. Flanked by freshwater creeks and fronted by a dramatic tide flat shore, it’s the perfect park for a quiet walk or a peaceful night under the stars. Fall is a superb time of year to enjoy the colorful foliage, spot salmon spawning in the creeks or dig for clams and oysters.

Get out and enjoy a day — or a night or two — at Belfair!
