Joemma Beach is yet another gorgeous state park on the Puget Sound. Do you Washingtonians ever get tired of all your picturesque wilderness escapes? It seems like not, because Joemma Beach is just as popular as the next. Occupying 3,000 feet of saltwater frontage on southeast Key Peninsula, Joemma Beach is the perfect place for anyone who can’t get enough of the salty ocean air.
A typical visit consists of exploring the natural beauty from a boat, casting a line into the deep blue waters, combing the beaches for washed-up treasures or all of the above. Sound like a good time? We think so too.
Arrive in style to your campsite! If you’ve got a non-motorized watercraft like a canoe, you can row on in, there’s two water trailer sites...

History of Joemma Beach State Park
This property was granted to Washington at statehood in 1889 for the support of common schools. The original recreation site was developed beginning in 1961 and was named Robert F. Kennedy Recreation Area on opening day in 1968. The property was transferred to State Parks in 1995 and was renamed Joemma Beach State Park after Joe and Emma Smith who lived on the premises from 1917 to 1932.
