Twanoh State Park (seven miles east of Union on Hwy. 106, 360/902-8500, www.parks.wa.gov ) is a very popular spot for picnicking beneath tall trees, and swimming and water-skiing on relatively warm Hood Canal . The 182-acre park also has several miles of hiking trails along scenic Twanoh Creek, sturdy CCC-constructed structures from the 1930s, a tennis court, a concession stand with snacks and groceries, bathhouses, and camping in tent ($19) and RV ($26) sites with coin-operated showers.
