Sequim Bay State Park is a year-round, 92-acre marine camping park with 4,909 feet of saltwater coast in the Sequim "rainshadow," just inside Puget Sound on the Olympic Peninsula. The bay is calm and the air is dry, thus making this a popular marine park with boaters. Other features include a tennis court, baseball field, horseshoe pits, beach combing, interpretive opportunities, and the paved Olympic Discovery Trail.
Discover Pass: A Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to state parks for day use. For more information about the Discover Pass and exemptions, please visit the Discover Pass web page.
The park provides three kitchen shelters, one with electricity, plus 10 sheltered and 15 unsheltered picnic tables. Facilities are reservable. Reservations can be made online or by calling 888-CAMPOUT (888-226-7688).
The upper kitchen shelter is near swings, horseshoe pits, and a tunnel that connects to a baseball field and tennis courts. It can accommodate up to 40 people. Two lower shelters have a view of Sequim Bay. One is small, for accommodating up to 10 people. The other can accommodate up to 40 people and has electricity.

For the past century, the word "Sequim" was believed by many to mean "quiet waters." In 2010, a tribal linguist who is an expert in the study of dying languages determined the translation was wrong. The correct translation of "Sequim" is a "place for going to shoot," a reference to the Sequim-Dungeness Valley's once great elk and waterfowl hunting.
