Got that river spot I talked about last time

We got an awesome river spot with our brand new set up. It rained but was a beautiful and oh so green area to camp.

Pretty nice place

Enjoyed the sound of the river right there. Restroom was not too smelly, no tp when we arrived, but most of us prepare for that. Would go again but would be more selective of site. Our spot was a little more marshy but the river spots looked fantastic.

So Scenic and Private

Disclaimer: the road from highway 101 to the campground has SO MANY potholes. Big ones that we had to navigate in our RV but nothing that made it too hard to access the campground.

There are 15 sites and most are along a river with private access from your campsite. We loved staying here! There is a lot of privacy between each site too.

Bathrooms are very limited (just 2 outhouses) and obviously no hook ups.

There is a hike with a trailhead 2 miles from the campsite. We walked there and it was a milder way walk uphill to the trail head and then the .8 mile hike heads to a pretty waterfall which you can walk behind.

Nice Location

We visited during the week and it was pretty empty.  Sites are spacious though they are grouped in such a way that 2-3 sites are open to each other.  Would make for a great place for groups with multiple tents.  All sites except two have river or stream access.  Getting to the water from the remaining sites, one of which is very private and the other very public, is difficult.  

There is some hiking nearby including a short hike to some beautiful waterfalls.  Dosewalips State Park is close by for some ocean and river fun.  There is also a large grassy area to play.  We saw an elk.  Beach not great.  Seal Rock is also very close and you are allowed to harvest oysters without a permit.  The beach area is quite pleasant and, surprisingly, the Sound is warm making for decent water play.

Peaceful campground by the river

Located on the east side of the Olympic Peninsula, Collins campground is a bit off the beaten path, which was what I was looking for during peak season in August.

The Duckabash river runs along most of the sites. There is a good amount of space between most campsites. Each one has a fire ring and picnic table. I was there the fire season, and while it was hard to escape the smoke pretty much anywhere in Washington, it was as bad at Collins.

I didnt see a campground host while I was there, Im not sure if they usually have one. Most campgrounds in the area were very full and quite busy, so I was very grateful to have found Collins . It Wass quiet and the few campers there were kind, quiet, and kept to themselves.

When driving to the campground on Duckabash road you will pass a cabin on your left side right before the paved road turns to gravel. Apparently that is the oldest structure built on on the peninsula. I thought that was pretty cool!

There are some great trails in the area as well. The Duckabash trailhead is a short drive from the campground and took two great hikes there during my stay. I hiked up river and found a lovely swimming hole, frigid, but beautiful.

I also found a great blackberry patch off the 101 which was so great having while I camped, hiked and in my morning yogurt :)

Cant wait to go back and explore more in the area!
