Klahanie is located on the South Fork Calawah River and has a typical temperate coastal rainforest canopy, including old growth spruce over 8’ in diameter, hanging mosses and a lush carpet of wood sorel and sword fern.
Klahanie provides a beautiful, inexpensive “base camp” to explore the unique shops and calendar events of Forks, as well as the spectacular surrounding landscapesounds. It is 20 minutes from the rugged Pacific Ocean coast and LaPush cultural center for the Quileute People, 25 minutes from the Bogachiel Rain Forest, and an hour from Cape Flattery bluffs and the Makkah Cultural Center.
Caution: Children should always be supervised around water. In recent years the river has eroded its bank.
Just a heads up this camp is closed as of August 2018. I went there unaware of the closure and upon arriving just saw the gate was down with no sign or info regarding the closure. I walked in on foot to scope out. It looks like a really incredible camp, I hope they re-open it soon- especially since theres a shortage of designated camps in the area during the peak season.
There is no cell service there, but when got drove back to ForksI called the local ranger office and they said they were unsure when it will reopen.
