Nice family park for camping, swimming, fishing, hiking, and limited hiking in old growth and 2nd generation forest.
MY WIFE AND I MADE A TRIP OUT TO THIS CAMP GROUND IN FEBRUARY AND IT WAS AWESOME. LOOKING FORWARD TO WHEN IT OPENS IN APRIL OF 2020. THERE ARE ONLY 6 CAMPSITES NOT 21! VERY SECLUDED AND ROAD IN IS VERY ROUGH AND ALOT OF TREE'S DOWN ACROSS ROAD.
There are not many sites to the campground, so reserve several months in advance to get a good spot. Beach is essentially a private beach. Most let their dogs off leash to go play, as during peak season driving on the beach there is prohibited. For a cozy campground, most campers are friendly and respectful of others. When the weather is nice and wind is blowing, the campground comes alive with kites, windsocks and other wind related decorations being flown from most campsites. It’s quite the experience.
One thing I always look for when camping is great hikes nearby! The Chetwoot Campground has some great hiking nearby. There are some great campgrounds near Chetwoot, WA also. The campgrounds are clean and pretty good size. The campground is within the Olympic National Forest, so again there are great hikes! Most of them are not dog friendly, so make sure to look ahead and check before you go! Such a beautiful area, you don’t want to miss out. On one of the hikes we saw some mountain goats and lots of chipmunks. Highly recommend!!
I should have done a little more research before reserving a spot as this was not what I was looking for. There were pastures and fields surrounding the campground which was set back in a part of forrest. The street in front of the campground was a main road that cars and tractors drove up and down all day. All of the other campers were quiet and respectful but the location was not what we had hoped for. As far as recreation goes, neither we nor our neighbors could find the falls. There were regular flush toilets available and it was decently clean. Plenty of field space and climbing toys for families. We stayed in site 48 which was away from the other campsites but near the entrance to the campground and close to the road.
(This review written by a 10 and 12 year old). When we stopped by for a quick visit in October (end of the season), we first saw the picnic area. It had a lot of benches that were wood with scratches and pieces missing. The picnic area had bathrooms. In the center were sinks and metal BBQs. The BBQ hinges were broken and swung out awkwardly. Nearby the sinks did not have running water, and looked pretty gunky.
Across the field from the picnic area, was a closed gate that had blackberry brambles covering it. Beyond the gate was a bridge that looked like it hadn't been walked on for a bit. There were plants growing on it and the gate was locked.
Further down the road from the picnic area was the campground. Each spot had an electric hookup, water spigot, and an ok picnic table. Near the campground host and just beyond the bathrooms was a dump station ($3).
The women's bathroom had chipping paint and floor, older stalls with unflushed things, the showers had musty curtains that weren't clean. When you turned on the sink just slightly, nothing came out. When you turned it all the way on, it splurts out spraying everything in a two foot parameter around you.
The men's bathroom had the same chipping walls and floor. There were two open urnials with pink urinal cakes, two stalls, and some similar showers to the women's restroom. Except no tampon machine.
Up the road from the RV park was a river, but there were signs saying the banks were hazardous. Now your hopes of swimming in the river is annihilated.
There are many spaces, but they are very close together. If it were full, you would feel quite packed in.
If you are driving on I-5 and need a safe, quiet place to spend the night, this would do just fine in a pinch.
There are nice sports fields and a small playground if you need to stretch your legs.
