Beautiful Hood Canal

Our campsite #40 was plenty spacious enough to accommodate our 30’ 5th wheel with room left over to park our truck too. Overhead trees provided a nice shade canopy. Nice walk to the beach from our campsite. Hood Canal is beautiful. It’s close to the Lucky Dog Casino and a place selling freshly caught king salmon that they fillet for you right there. North on 101, don’t miss Hama Hama seafood! We picked up fresh Dungeness crab and local oysters for dinner. Lake Cushman is worth the trip to see although I would skip going all the way to the end of the lake as the road is dusty gravel and very busy.


Bathrooms were very clean flush toilets, handicap accessible, camp sites were open and packed in. Our window looked into neighbors window. Fun was had walking on the beach at hood canal.

Depends on the time of year

Depending on the time of year you come here. Will determine what kind of time you'll have. In the summer it's hard to get a spot and it's very crowded. But if you come in the spring and fall is a very lovely place to be.

Next to loud road

How can you give a campground next to the Olympia forest 2 stars? Well, not because it is terrible but in relation to everything else that is available, this isn't the spot I would recommend. It is situated right off of 101 which leads to loud noises all through the night from passing vehicles and the spots aren't exactly spacious. The bathrooms are clean and have soap though! The Hood Canal is right across 101 for you to enjoy your day relaxing but there aren't many trails. We did have large elk in the campground when we were here so you have the chance for wildlife viewing from your tent (or car). As a traveler through the region this would be my last resort camp spot if you are on the way out of the region through Olympia.

tight parking

it’s super tight parking here, backing in can be a challenge. the bathrooms are super clean and the short walk across the highway to hit the sound is amazing.

Great for families

This place is Perfect for families with all size children. There is a small stream running through the side of Some of the camp spots that the kids can play . It's directly across the Street from the beach. That's very easy to get to. If you time it right you can also clam. This is one of our favorite camp spots

Woodsy camp along the Hood Canal but so close to busy road

Always drove by on our way to other campgrounds but decided to stay over. Day use area is on the Hood Canal and very nice. Campground borders a busy highway and traffic noise is bad. Some nice campsites in a wooded loop along a nice little creek for tenters. Rv hookup sites are close together. Might be better if you were camping with friends next to you.

First to Review
Great spot!

We were looking for a place to sleep after attending a wedding. This is a great place! Would definitely go back just to camp for a while. The sites closer to the back of the campground (where we were) are far away from the road so you can't really hear highway noise at all. Bathrooms were clean (mix of flushing toilets and composting toilets), and there were showers too! Lots of families were camping there, it has great access to the day-use area of Potlatch State Park and this area is just gorgeous!
