Absolutely Amazing

We went there for the first time this weekend. Had site 11. It was perfect. Nice and spacious. There was a path to the river right across from our site and we sat down there all day and let the kids play in the water. It’s just a short walk down to Lower Lewis Falls, which is breathtaking. There road to get to the campground is pretty rough and there is absolutely no cell service. No running water and only vault toilets but totally and completely worth it.


We stayed here for one night as a pit stop on our Olympic National Park road trip. The Lodge itself is very pretty and of course the lake is gorgeous. We stayed in the Pyramid Mountain rooms, they were outdated. It was good for a pit stop but not quite our cup of tea. They did allow us to have our small dog in the room, which was a big plus.


We tent camped at the campground here a few times. The swimming area is a short walk away. There’s also a second swimming area and a playground within the park that is a quick drive. There is an on-site store and snack shack. We love this place. The kids have a blast. There are clean bathrooms with showers.

Downfalls:: It can get pretty windy and the raccoons and mosquitoes can be pretty pesky. Also one year we went at the end of August during wild fire season so it was a little smokey.

Wrong time of year

We stayed on the South side of the campground. Beautiful place, quiet, decently sized sites,clean bathrooms, showers and a little onsite market and food. We had cell service.

Downfall:: We went at the end of June and were expecting nice weather and to be able to swim in the lake. It was so windy and the water was super choppy and rough so we weren’t able to. Would love to go back later in the summer.


We booked this about a month in advance. Love that it’s close to home. Gorgeous surroundings. Quiet, the campground was full but you’d never know it. There is a nice little hike and super cool river spots you can access. The kids had fun riding bikes around.

Downfalls:: We had site 16 and it was tiny, there wasn’t even a tent pad. The bathrooms were pretty far away. There is absolutely no cell service.


We go once a year and stay in a yurt. This is a family favorite. We love Yurt 62. It’s on a little cul-de-sac where the kids can ride their bikes and scooters around. There’s a trail to the beach and bathrooms very close. It is quiet and clean and you get cell service.

Pretty Nice

Nice big sites, park for the kids, and trails down to cool spots to hang out by the water. Clean bathrooms.


We were lucky enough to book an oceanfront site after weeks of trying. It was definitely worth the effort! Easily our all time favorite place to camp. Gorgeous area, amazing beach. Clean bathrooms.
