Longbranch is a small community located in Pierce County on the Key Peninsula in northwest Washington. It's situated along Filucy Bay between Pitt Passage and Balch Passage. The community of Longbranch is primarily residential, but includes a marina, community center and a church. The Key Peninsula is a "finger" of land in the Puget Sound. Called "The KP," or "The Key" by locals, it's about 16 miles long and extends south from the Kitsap Peninsula. Longbranch is just a short drive to two state parks on the Peninsula: Penrose Point State Park and Joemma Beach State Park. Penrose Point State Park is a 152-acre marine and camping park with over two miles of saltwater frontage on Mayo Cove and Carr Inlet. Wildlife, birds and forested terrain make this a beautiful park to visit. A self-guided interpretive trail called A Touch of Nature is located in the day-use area, and extends for 1/5 mile. The park also has two picnic shelters and 60 unsheltered picnic tables. Joemma Beach State Park is a 122-acre marine camping park with 3,000 feet of saltwater frontage on southeast Kitsap Peninsula. It's an excellent park for fishing, boating and crabbing and provides a boat launch and water trail campsites.

Evenings are usually warm with a light ocean breeze. Temperatures range from low 30s in winter to mid 80s in summer. Coastal conditions are generally much more harsh than those in the Puget Sound. @
