  Cascadia Maritime Trail camp site at Penrose Point
by glabah
 
 

Set back in the woods, but very close to a beach and not very far at all from the park's all year restroom facilities, Penrose Point's only camp site on the Cascadia Maritime Trail is simply a forest clearing with a picnic table, and a reminder that the camp site is reserved for those who arrive in a human-powered beachable watercraft.

Overflow Camp Sites are only available in the standard campground up the road, which is close by, but still some distance from the beach.

Unique Qualities: As it is far from the rest of the camping facilities, the camp site is very much secluded, and since it is located right in the forest, the environment is quite a bit more remote-feeling than it actually is.

Comparison: least expensive
Directions: Located directly behind the main parking area in the day use area of the beach section of the park. Located in small cove about halfway south along east side of Mayo Cove.
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Campground
