We absolutely loved our stay here (9/5-9/7)! We arrived on a weekday and the campground was fairly empty, so we were able to grab a great spot in the A loop with easy access to the restrooms and the trails to the visitor center. The campground is first come, first serve, dry camping, and the dump station was out of service while we were there.
There are both back-in and pull- through sites with concrete pads, fire rings, and picnic tables. Some tight turns and low-hanging trees but our 32’ fifth wheel managed just fine. Plenty of wildlife, including deer, rabbits, birds, squirrels, and numerous banana slugs.
The visitor is an easy walk from the campground. The hiking trails were simply gorgeous and we definitely did not stay long enough to thoroughly enjoy this area of Olympic National Park.
Nearby Forks, WA is a 45 minute drive from the campground.
Two bars of Verizon LTE but it varied throughout the park.
A note about the drive in: We are very glad we arrived on a weekday! The road into this campground is narrow, and there were times we were driving over the centerline to keep our rig on the road. There is no shoulder for most of the drive and we did not want to meet any oncoming traffic with a rig as long as ours. It’s doable but take it slow!
This campground feels like you are taking a step back into time or being part of Jurassic Park. There are many spots right along the river which you can place a smaller(less than 25’) travel trailer or RV. Each spot has its own landscape and plenty of space from your neighbors. This campground does not take reservations as its first come first serve. There also are not any hook-ups for water, sewer or electrical. The weather has its own climate and we stayed in early August and temperatures stayed around the 65-70’s during the day and a little cooler at night. We would come back here again!
Rainforest…. lush green moss hanging from the trees.. elk.. fog settling on the ground.. bluest river ever. Fishing is amazing…. campground is clean and spacious. Hiking trails everywhere
hands down my favorite campground ever. pretty busy, but the sites are huge. lots of wildlife. get there early cause sites fill up quick!
This is a first come first serve campground, and the good spots fill up by about 3pm, so if you want the choice spots right on the river, get there between 11a and 3pm. The drive in to the campground is nothing short of magical. I kept expecting fairies and unicorns to cross the road. While we didn’t see any mystical creatures, we did see elk, ducklings, slugs, deer, and ravens.
Great for car camping and families, with drive up campsites, restrooms with flush toilets and potable water easily accessible.
Town of Forks is nearby if you want to leave the rainforest for a moment.
The Hoh River is easily accessible from the campground.
There is a $30 fee for a 7 day pass to get in to the National Forest Land in addition to the $20 per night for the campsite. So, the longer you stay, the more you get your money’s worth.
Camp hosts were knowledgeable and friendly.
Despite always being full and super busy during the Summer; this is a must see! Some of the best stargazing I have ever done in my life.
Nice hikes, the campground was crowded and not very private.
Hoh Campground at Olympic National Park has 78 first-come-first-served campsites located deep within the rainforest on the westernsidof the park. There are more shades of green than there are names for them- and the moss that grows everywhere makes you feel like you have entered a fairy tale forest. P The campground has flush toilets and potable water, but no shower facilities.
very wet, but adds to the rainforest effect.
