Beautiful in the fall

When we came here in February, it was snowed in and we stayed at the fork of forest roads 23 and 2353. This time we decided to check it out in the fall so we came in November. There was a light dusting of snow in some places but the roads were clear and the weather was beautiful. The campground is closed but the off season sites are even better than the campground campsites, in our opinion.

Great Campground

On Sat July 30th and Sun July 31st, a group of 9 of us went bikepacking and we stayed at a campsite along the river. It was large enough to fit our big group and a beautiful spot along the water for hanging out. We really lucked out in getting a campsite since the rest of the campground was full and we arrived about 5pm on Saturday. In the morning, I took a walk along the beaver pond trail and it was really nice with informational signs along the trail.

Great site

Lovely spot next to the Skokomish river, a few beautiful spots right on the river and creek. All the others are great too though, good balance of privacy for all the sites. Facilities great for dispersed - restrooms, space, tables, fire pits and a water pump. Arrived about 6pm during the week in high summer and still a good number of spaces available.

Off Season Info Post

This is more of an informational post for anyone looking to camp here off season than a review since we technically didn’t make it to the campground. It is a campground that has sites available year round, however, and no one has posted an off season review so we figured we should provide some info from our experience for our fellow off season campers.

The last 6 or so miles before the campground are pretty snowy and there is a lot of tree fall. They have done a ton of work to clear the trees so it is passable but it gets fairly narrow at times. We got there after dark on Friday and a couple times we weren’t sure if we should continue on because the snow got pretty deep and icy. We trudged through to where forest road 23 forks to 2353, about 1.2 miles from Brown Creek Campground, but from there it was impassable due to lots of snow and tree fall that had not been cut so we pulled off the road and camped on the shoulder for two nights. A guy came up Saturday and cut the trees for that full 1.2 miles to the campground but it was still pretty impassible. A couple jeeps made it down but most people parked at the top and walked or turned around and went home.

We hiked to Brown creek Campground on Saturday. Lots of scrambling over and around tree falls but it was a really nice walk. The campground is in a beautiful location and, true to what their website says, there are 6 sites along the river available for off season camping—when you can access them. It is probably best to access these off season sites in the fall, before the snow and storms interfere. We will definitely return and hopefully camp in one of the established sites when they are accessible. There is a pit toilet open year round and the sites have picnic tables and fire rings. No hookups. $14/night.

One thing that was very sad to see was the amount of litter at this campground and in the area in general. There is no garbage service so we need to pack out what we bring in. It’s a small job to carry out your own trash but it becomes a big job, not to mention unsafe for wildlife and a real eyesore, when everyone leaves it behind. Please remember to take your trash home with you!

Little slice of heaven!!

Beautiful park hidden near the heart of the Olympics. We've stayed several times, and enjoyed every trip. Perfect for summertime camping and stargazing, being in the center of a deep valley. Worth the long drive through forest roads. PLENTY of hiking nearby.

Great area to explore

Brown Creek Campground is just outside of Shelton WA. There are a lot of cool places to explore around the area. Check it the high steel bridge or hike spider lake and see the beavers.

The historic and infamous Vance Creek bridge is just down the road, but they have made it off limits and difficult to get to.

Great Camping

We went camping in the Olympic Mountains at Browns Creek campground. My fist time camp here. As a child we camped at a lake near by so decided to check this out. Enjoyed the walk around the pond with the kids. I did need bug spray because of large amounts of mosquitoes. Did see a lot of birds and two deer.
