Northwest winter camping?

Anyone have a favorite spot for camping in the off-season? I've done Fort Casey and like it as watching the ferries is a good pastime when it is too yucky to be outside. But I'd like to branch out a bit.

Fort Worden and Fort Flagler, each for different reasons, but both close to my fav town in the PNW, Port Townsend.

Hi Bobbi,
One of my favorite camping areas are on Stevens Pass. I'll bet snow is starting fall and settle in by now. I'd suggest noodling Port Townsend and see what's going on there. There is REALLY lots to do. Check out the …. oh it escapes my tongue … but are Arts workshops in PT at Fort Worden. The drive around the Olympic Peninsula is delightful and can take from one day (to Olympia) or a few more days./ There is so much down there that I am very envious ( I grew up in Olympia ). Wish I could come down and organize some camp gatherings. PM me.

Tom

Or for urban camping in PT, Port Hudson marina. We camp there for the Port Townsend international film festival each September. Can walk to all the shows.

I've never been to Cape Disappointment but may get there if a decent window opens up to visit my kids in Northern California. (I do not like to drive 101 in torrential rain.) But also hoping for things closer to home- maybe in the rain shadow?

I'm fine without extra stuff to do but do like Port Townsend. Somewhere near there would be good even with the ferry fares. I've camped at Dosewallops but it strikes me as one of the wetter spots after seeing a lot of flooding pictures.

My friends do that sometimes, too.
