Memorable, went with daughter and grandchildren. Sweet time there.

Clean, camp host were helpful and cheerful.

An excellent ocean experience!

I guided a 1 week coastal backpacking trip and this was and excellent refueling pit stop along the way! Great amenities and great location.


stayed for just one night but we got a great side on the bluff overlooking toung point. The sun set was beautiful

Where the locals go

OMGOSH what a find! Absolutely stunning views of the Juan De Fucas Straight, tide pools, beach, hiking. Camp in the forest or with a view of the straight. Inexpensive and clean.

Great trip

Love this campground. Great beach. Lots of raccoons so keep your food in your car.

It's so beautiful here!

I can completely forgive the apartment style camping here. The sites are big with privacy and many of them have views of the ocean. Our site did!! So pretty. Lots of beach exploring during the day. And awesome campfires are night. Watch out there are lots of hungry raccoons!

Classic family car camp

Although we were surrounded in fog, enjoyed the playground, tide pools and private site number 51. Always a great spot

Surreal PNW beauty

Diverse ecosystems here include rocky and sandy shores, tide pools, and dense lush forests so there’s a lot to explore and a lot of different wildlife to see. There aren’t serious hiking trails here, just endless beautiful coast. The tents only campsites out on the little peninsula are the best. They also have some sports fields, showers, camp store, and a few other modern amenities that compliment the natural beauty. Exceptional camping here.


This place is super under cover and rad! Right outside of port angeles. Great stop before or after Vancouver Island or Olympic National park or in our case…both. Hot showers, very on the picnic table raccoons and incredible views of the sound.
