8 Reviews of Heart O The Hills - Olympic National Park
Hurricane Ridge

This site is phenomenal. I visited it in June and there was still a ton of snow on the ground. Plenty of well marked trails and great areas to explore. There is a ski lodge that wasn't operating at the time I visited and a great visitor center with very clean facilities and a gift shop. This area had the most beautiful views you could imagine of all the mountain tops in the area. I highly recommend you visit.

Beautiful campground

A must do for Olympic national park. Cold at night because of elevation and be sure to have a rain fly, but you're surrounded by magnificent old growth trees. Head up to the lookout and take a short walk about to see marvelous view of the north cascades and Victoria on a clear day.

Camping near Amazing Views

Nice campground close to Hurricane Ridge which is really what makes this campground rock!! Only been during the week and it was easy to secure a first come, first serve site. Flush toilets, water available. $20/night. Always a nice overnight if I want to head out to Hurricane ridge and not drive back to the city.

Nice (smallish) tent sites

Nice sites. Fairly level and not too rocky. We had enough room for our two 2-man tents, but not much more. Many of the sites are small, but there are also bigger ones which were already taken. Each site has a picnic table. In mid-August, on a Saturday, we were able to get a site at 1pm and there were plenty of small sites left. It did fill up by the end of the day though. I didn't see any bear-bins, so I think they expect that you have a car to put food in. They do have a dishwashing area at each bathroom, which was nice. Good location on the way up to Hurricane Ridge, which is definitely worthwhile!

great location

We have stayed here many times. This campground has everything you need for a nice getaway. The sites are somewhat private, the bathrooms are sufficient, and there are trails to explore close by. The campground IS in the National Park, so make sure you have your Access Park Pass or you must pay the entrance fee to the park. Also keep in mind that National Park rules apply to dogs. So you will want to keep your pet leashed at all times, or risk a hefty fine.

Awesome sites

Great location nestled into huge trees which makes your sites very secluded. Excellent for a tent, might be a bit small for anything else Very close to some excellent hikes and great views.

No shower, simple toilet and potable water. You do have a fire ring and concrete table.

Heart O The Hills

This is a great campground. Family friendly, nice spots, right near a multitude of walks/drives/hikes, and just down the road from the ranger station/ really cool Wilderness Information Center, if you are needing a backcountry permit or just wanting to see what they offer. It is in the national park, so you pay an entrance fee to the park as well as for camping.

Private Campsites in the heart of an Old Growth Forest

We stayed here for one night on a tour of the Olympic Peninsula. It was a pretty standard site for this area with nice, semi-private tent sites which contain a picnic table and fire pit.

The campground is about a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Port Angeles, which we visited for supplies and a night out.
