High and Mighty

This campground is so high and remote. It's not glamping, by any means. Sites are nice, but there's very little in between them for privacy. Views are incredible. I've been going here since I was a kid.

Worth the drive, even on a cloudy day!

Camping with a view! Or bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the scenery and the fresh air.

Favorite Getaway

This is the best little campground! Wish amazing views and great trails near by! Campground was clean and quiet. Early August was when I was there, and it was pretty busy! Try to get a spot early!

Out of the Way and Wonderful

Deep park is located on a 7 mile long gravel road.  The drive up is tight and not suitable for any type of trailer.  The campground has level tent sights that offer a fantastic 360 degree view.  There is no water, so bring your own and there a couple of vault toilets.  This campground give you a clear view of the night sky and if it rains, some have shelters keep dry.  Overall, for a night or two this campground is wonderful.

amazing views!

this campground is not the easiest to get to but shouldn’t be avoided. the long winding road isn’t necessarily steep but it is narrow, so just take it slow. we found out that this was one of the original sites for camping in the Olympic high country and was even a ski resort when first built! the bathrooms are pit toilets but are well kept and not disgusting. no running water is available so pack in what you need. the spots are well spaced and don’t ask for much more. the deer are in abundance so you should definitely keep food in the car. the pads don’t really exist so be prepared for uneven tent surfaces. I don’t think campers are allowed but if so, I wouldn’t bring one up.

Star gazing magic

We got up there about 1 o'clock on a Friday…you definately need to be there earlier! Everything was crazy packed full already. Luckily I went and talked to the ranger and he told me of a spot that might still be open…IT WAS! We were there for the weekend. Our first day was very nice and sunny so we went on a hike pass the meadow it leads to beautiful open mountains. That night it got so dark we were blanketed in stars and it was simply amazing. This campground has no showers or water. They do have pit toilets and firewood for sale. Be prepared to see lots of deer. Its a great place to go get away for the weekend but definately start early and get there early.

Worth the drive!

A beautiful campground in Olympic National Park with views galore! It was cool how tame the deer were as well. We stayed in spot A4, backing right up to the meadow. It didn't offer a ton of privacy, but all you have to do is look outside your tent to forget about that. This is probably the coolest campground I've stayed in. 10/10 would recommend!

Stunning Views

We camped here last summer. The clouds were in and it was raining till we set up camp. The drive was long to get up, but well worth it. We set up camp during a short rain break. We couldn't see the view at all that night. The next day we woke up and were stunned by the mountain peak view. It was worth it to camp here just for this. We also saw a lot of deer right by our tent.

We will be going back

the view!

I gotta be honest, we didn't camp here on our trip to Olympic National Park, BUT we wished we did! It is a beautiful, secluded, 'back to nature' campground that is so unique! Not very many sites, but they are large and secluded. This is quite primitive camping (no water available) so being prepared is key. The drive to the campground is a bit intense, but the views make it totally worth it! This is a place that was added to the 'bucket list' campgrounds immediately!
