Campground's great, scenery's even better

For sheer beauty alone this campground deserves 5 stars.  We were in site 15, right on Lake Quinault, and really enjoyed everything we saw and did here.  The campground is small and right off the road but traffic noise isn't bothersome, particularly if you snag a site on the lake.  Overall, you can't beat the location.  Our site was quiet and more secluded than some of the others (we had to move to #14 next door when we decided to stay one more night--it was good but not as secluded).  But wow, the temperate rainforest across the road made the whole place worthwhile.  We were able to hike the Lake Quinault Loop Trail with our dogs (about 3.8 miles) and for these rain-starved Californians, it was heaven on Earth:  lush, verdant, and with a thousand different shades of green.  The campground has bathrooms with flush toilets and cold water sinks (no showers), and there are garbage cans for your trash.  Ranger station is about ½ mile away if you need maps or someone official to talk to.  Not a lot of options for takeout food, if that's your thing; the two restaurants up the road aren't exactly culinary treasures.  But the scenery makes up for any shortcomings.  Lake Quinault is a jewel.
