Campground is located along the shore of the Hamma Hamma River. Evergreen conifers and hardwoods provide lots of shade. The Living Legacy Trail leaves from a trailhead in the campground. The first 1/4 mile is accessible and overlooks the Hamma Hamma River.
There are 15 campsites that will accomodate tents, trailers, and RV's up to 21 feet in length. Tables, fire rings, paved road, and accessible vault toilets are available. Toilet access surface is compact gravel.
VERY NICE CAMPSITE. VERY CLOSE TO LENA LAKE TRIAL HEAD. VERY QUIET AND VERY CLOSE TO THE RIVER.
Small simple campground along a little river on the eastern side of Olympic NP, easy to get to. Beautiful trees and close to some nice hiking trails. It will be busy since it’s the closest Olympic NP campground to Seattle. There is a nice CCC cabin with bunkbeds that you can rent nearby. While it is absolutely beautiful, if you can drive a little further into the park you may find less crowded sites.
We snagged the last spot in this campground on a Friday evening. The setting was a lovely shady forest with a nearby river. We had a nice time, the sites were spaced out fairly well, despite it being a pretty small campground. There were nice fire pits and a few tent pads per site, although ours was barely able to fit two tents. The river is very nice, but it is surprisingly difficult to access from the campground even though is only a couple dozen yards away. The bathroom was pretty smelly and the loop road was in poor repair. This campground does not post a sign out when it is full, so we had folks driving through hoping for a spot for hours into the night. A little cheaper, but no potable water. There's water available at the next campground (Lena Lake), however it was out of order when we were there. Definitely some downsides, but we had a fun time, got decent sleep, and we're content enough!
I love coming up here in the fall to catch a few trout (it's catch and release) and look for chanterelles. It's a chilly damp area, hence all the mushrooms. It's a small campground along the forest service road.
Leave early on Friday and get a spot at the Hamma Hamma Campground! You can take a day hike to Lena Lake, or just explore the river from your campsite. It's such a great campground, we try to go several times each year. On a warm summer day there are some great swimming holes that are actually warm enough to enjoy! The sites are mostly private, and large! The bathrooms are pit toilets so they can get rough during the busy summer months, and there is no drinking water available, so be sure to bring your own water. But even with the stinky pit toilets, this campground is a real gem!
