In addition to being a pretty spot, this is a good place to establish HQ and stike out in several directions to check out cool spots. The Kalaloch tree cave is pretty rad- not the kind of thing that makes you come out here in the first place, but the kind of thing that makes you glad you came. Plenty of beach options, each with their own unique character. Ruby beach is 10 min up the road- super popular.
To be fair you know what your getting into with a popular place. Crowded with lots of people having a great time. If you don't have patients for bikes, kids, families, and laughter late into the night don't come here.The sunsets, and beach are something. You better make sure your site can handle your setup.
A lot of the spaces are tight. In the summer don't think you are going to pop-in, and find a spot on the weekend. The camp host was very clear about non-reservable spots. You have to be there by 9:45 am in case someone leaves, and it's first come first serve. You might try South Beach, but it's in even more demand, and every site is first come first served.
Lots of places to see with Kalaloch as a basecamp. Start with Ruby Beach during a low tide, then explore beaches 1 through 4. That alone is a full weekend. Then there is the rest of the penninsula!
Enjoyed easy access to beach and Olympic National Park. Looking forward to going back.
Some sites are gloomy and dark, while some are sunny and bright. As stated earlier, some sites are right next to the highway, so road noise might be a problem.
I prefer winter camping here because its less crowded, and the storms coming in from the Pacific are nothing less than awe inspiring.
This campground fills up fast. The access to the beach is easy, the beach is beautiful. Campsites are kind of small and it is located right off hwy 101 so there is a lot of hwy noise.
Loved this place, right on the beach. My children thought they had been brought to a new land. By far one of the best campgrounds we have ever been to. My kids loved the beach!
this is my favorite place to camp in WA. love hearing the waves at night and the views are amazing. huge beach and well maintained campground
I visited during October and there were a fair amount of people camping here. Mostly RVs and campers due to the storm that happened to be coming through that night. I will say that the water drained perfectly from our campsite throughout a rough storm which is a huge plus. We were able to visit Olympic National Park easily throughout the duration of our stay.
Be prepared. Kalaloch is beautiful. In the morning there is a mist that comes in from the Pacific and shrouds the rocks strewn about the beach in mystery. We figured that if we were camping in July near the Pacific the water would be warm, it was not. My children enjoyed playing near the water's edge and building sand castles. We hiked on the beach. We visited Forks. We explored the rainforest. Everything in our camp became damp over the week. We got lucky when we went to Seattle that we had a span of several dry days and we dried out our ground cloth, tent and rain fly.
