Small campground on an amazing lake

This is a really nice little campground on the really nice Quinalt Lake.  Sites are not large, and are fairly close to the road (although it isn't really that busy)....but those minuses are offset by the location.  The lake is just fabulous and offers great swimming and paddling.  We were there at…

Pretty Lakeside camping with a Beach!

This campsite is fairly similar to Willaby just further up the lake and closer to Quinault Lodge and the mercantile across the street. Great place to spend the weekend out on the south shore of Lake Quinault and has all the amenities (other than showers) that you could ever ask for while camping.

  • windshield tour!
  • elk sighting on the drive in
  • kayaks at Lake Quinault Lodge

Right on the lake!

Beautiful spots, some right on the lake. The campgrounds were clean, they had a clean bathroom, and bear safe garbage cans. The first spot we camped in (#8) was a short walk from the parking spot but felt more secluded. The second spot (#31) was a longer walk but totally worth it for the close walk…

  • Short walk from walk in campsites.
  • Beautiful camp site
