The campground is in a beautiful forest and the loops are relatively spread out but near enough to the hot springs resort for soaking or other amenities. Some of the spots are close together but they seem nice for RV’s, but not as private as I personally like while tent camping. The nearby hike to Sol Duc waterfalls is a nice activity while you are staying at this campground.
Bear lockers are included, so make sure to lock up all your food. Huge campsites with room for 1 or more tents ( depending on site), parking spots, picknick tables and bear lockers, and fire rings . Tolerable but still plentiful mosquitoes.
Gorgeous campsite with multiple loops. Many hikes nearby with back country camping options. Lots of great waterfalls as well. Obviously we were there during a down pour, many camp sites were soggy! Nice shelters available for back country camping as well.
Very clean bathrooms with showers and potable water. Most camp sites were spacious and offered plenty of trees in proximity to add to the serenity of the experience. Beautiful park and right near the hot springs.
I am at awestruck at this campground. There is no cellular service out there, but you can go in to the neighboring Hot Spring Resort for supplies and help with campsite if the camp management is not available. Or to buy services at the Hot Springs. There are cards at the entrance of camp loops to say where you are as well, but I was honestly confused by that. There are no showers at the campground, but does have flush toilets. There are campsites butting up to the river, a couple are a walk down into the site. All campsites are about double the size of normal campsites and are gorgeous. We actually set up our tent and realized we had a whole other area that had much more room for the tent. There was a pesky raccoon that was hopping between sites looking for anything. He tried stealing lighter fluid that was in a bag, he stole cans and candy, and a purse. (He brings it all to the center shrubbery if you unluckily meet him). He's adorable, but dont trust him if he shows up. There is a trail with an outstanding waterfall that you must see.
This campground was very nice. We actually stayed in the RV campground. There is a lodge which is just a small little hike on a trail that runs along the sol duc river. There is no actual bathroom in the RV campground, which if you have an RV it will be no problem. If you do not have a RV, then stay in the actual tent campground, where there are restrooms. The lodge has restrooms and shower but the lodge is not open all night long.
Ample opportunities to view waterfalls, beautiful Sol Duc River, & wildlife. If you want an industrialized visit you can stat at the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort. Alternatively there are hike in hot springs above the Elwha River.
If you hike in quietly, you have the opportunity to see Blacktail Deer & Roosevelt Elk.

there are excellent hiking trails and views. You can sit on a rock and watch the salmon swim up river and jump 10 feet in the air to clear rocks. it is amazing. the resort is so nice and the sulfur pools are nice to relax in a night before bed.
When I 1st drove to this camp. I was taken away by the beauty it’s like being in the middle of the HOH rainforest campers aren’t to close to one another and many beautiful mushrooms to wonder and find.
This is a cool place to camp. Tucked inside a moss-covered forest in Olympic Park, you are in a place that is very unique. There are hot springs, but they charge by the day and it isn’t cheap. Stock up before you get to the park, the nearest town is about 40 mins away. Also, the RV Park is really just a parking lot, so be aware of this. If you have a camper or tent, go into the campground part. Sol Duc falls is very close also, and worth the short hike. It was a great experience, very glad we camped here.
