Story

Just seven miles off the Bainbridge Island/Seattle Ferry, Fay Bainbridge Campground is the closest bike overnight destination to Seattle. 
It's close enough to hop a ferry after work on a Wednesday, camp out, and return to work refreshed the next morning. 
We never get tired of Fay Bainbridge Campground--waking up next to the ebb and flow of the Puget Sound and views of Seattle and Mount Rainier across the watery wonderland never leave us hanging. 
The route is ideal for beginning bike-campers who are getting used to carrying gear for the first time, families with children in tow, and anyone who feels more whole after a night camping out. 
Camp amenities include 
-Coin Operated Showers
-Fire Wood
-Two Shelters with fire chimneys
-Hiker Biker Sites
-Picnic Tables
-Fire Rings

Campsites are situated on a grassy field right on the beach, and there is another cluster up the hill. There is little privacy on the waterfront and it can even be hard to delineate between sites, but we think that it makes for a great place for groups. Tents are recommended, as there are few trees in the lower campground. 

Be aware of raccoons. They are cheeky and they are bold! Stow all of your food properly. 
The ferry terminal drops off and picks up in Winslow, where there is a fancy grocery store with a killer deli, a brewery, and one of our morning favorites, Black Raven Bakery.
