Beautiful but Busy

This is a small campground with 11 sites. Even in the off season, this campground was busy. During the day, people drove in and out presumably to look at the river, and, while we had the campground to ourselves during the day on Saturday, there were several campers Saturday night. There is good surfing in the area so a few of the campers were there for that purpose. Most of the sites are very close together with only a short fence between them and are not very private. If you could reserve a few sites close together, it would be great for a group.

There is an easy, 1.25-mile (2.5-mile round trip) walk to the beach—trailhead at the entrance to the campground—that is really nice.

There are 3 water spigots open year round and 2 pit toilets, one of which is open year round. One site (6) has hookups and a cement pad but the hookups were locked for the season when we were there. We were able to get about 1 bar LTE/2 bars 3G with Verizon but cell service overall was limited.

The river was lovely but we probably won’t return to this one. Just too crowded for us!

  • Campsite 6 has hookups that we’re locked for the off season
  • Campsite 8. 7 and 9 are on either side. Very cramped.

  • Strait of Juan de Fuca
  • The short walk to the beach is really nice
