Learn to pitch a tent, make s'mores and camp U.S. style with new FIUTS friends! Advance sign-up in the FIUTS office required; UW students only please.
Twanoh State Park, situated on the shoreline of Hood Canal, features one of the warmest saltwater beaches in Washington state. This is because Hood Canal is one of the warmest saltwater bodies in Puget Sound. The 182-acre marine, camping park has 3,167 feet of saltwater shoreline. The name of the park derives from the Native American Twana tribes, better known as the Skokomish, who made their home in the area.
Advance sign-up begins: Monday, June 18th. Sign up in the FIUTS office (10am-4pm), or at Downtown ELP (Thursday, 12-1pm).
Cost: $100 (includes transportation, camping accommodation and basic meals)
What to bring: Sleeping bag, pillow, hiking shoes, warm clothes, flashlight (if you have one), wind/rain jacket, warm pajamas, water bottle, toiletries, ear plugs, your favorite snacks, pack a meal for Friday dinner on the drive and your camera - of course!
Additional Info: We recommend a cool/cold weather sleeping bag made for camping temperatures between 30 and 50 degrees. Here's an example of a sleeping bag that you can order from Target online for about $30.
