Located outside the national park’s Nisqually entrance, Ashford’s Basecamp Bar and Grill is a casual restaurant with mostly outdoor seating, local atmosphere, and a hearty menu of burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas, with microbrews for mom and dad. The open-air restaurant serves as a hub in a park-like setting that includes a nearby rock climbing wall kids can mess around on and Whittaker’s Bunkhouse and Whittaker’s Espresso (with ice cream). The prices here beat the cost of national park food, but it can get busy as Ashford is quite small and is the last stop before the park entrance. Great kid stop.
