Day use only!

The former Altair campground was damaged by flooding in the winter of 2017 and is now only open to day use in the area. With that being said its a great place to spend the day or wait out a rain storm. As of September 2018 there is still a pit toilet, garbage and recycling cans and picnic tables as well as a shelter on site. With the removal of the bridges currently up this may change how often Altair is serviced by the National Parks Department so check with the Wilderness Information Center in Port Angeles for current info. Altair is about 2.5 miles from the current trailhead at Madison Falls and is open to foot and bike traffic. If you're looking to camp overnight the closest camp sites within Olympic National Park are Humes Ranch up Whiskey Bend road or Boulder Creek up Hot Springs Road.
