No signs will direct you to this hidden State Park. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife promotes the park as an excellent public clam and oyster beach. They even regularly oyster seed the bay. Most of the visitors therefore are harvesting shellfish. But the park is also excellent for walking, picnicking, and bird watching. For hikers, a beach goes a half mile to the north where you are stopped short by a small water channel filling or empting the bay. But the other direction from the parking area is a 1.5 mile beach hike along Shide Tidelands State Park beach. If you are confident in the time you have with the tide, you can park at Shine Tidelands (right off the highway) and walk the 2 miles out and 2 miles back. If you do this hike, every time you drive over the Hood Canal Bridge, you get to view your route and remember the trip.
