Camp McKean Recreation Area


Camp McKean is located five miles west of Naval Base Kitsap Bremerton along the Kitsap Lake shoreline. The park is primarily for summer-day use in support of Navy commands and authorized Fleet & Family Readiness patrons.

The site includes a beach, large pavilion, gazebo, upper picnic field with two shelters, restrooms, fire rings, BBQ grills, children’s playground, fishing pier, boat dock, and horseshoe pits. Boats carried from the parking lot to the beach are allowed to launch, all other boats can use the public boat launch found on the south end of the lake.

Unless an area is reserved, all park areas (except the pavilion) are available first-come, first-served. Facility reservations are made at the Bangor Recreation Center, reservation fees can be made with debit or credit card, (checks from Commands only).

Parking is limited, please carpool when you can. Pets are not allowed. 


This serene outdoor space is only available for private use and offers a great covered pavilion, playground and lake-side views.

Reservations can be made through the Bangor Recreation Center. Call for availability and to book your event.
