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.

Fall at Fort Worden

We went to Fort Worden for a little ghost hunting in the bunkers. Stayed in the lovely beach loop and enjoyed beach walks, bunker exploring and cozy campfires! Beautiful Officers Quarters, buildings, bunkers, and views here. The movie An Officer and a Gentleman was filmed here.

Woodsy or waterfront?

Happened to snag a waterfront cancellation. Great beach loop. Two other loops were closed for construction and landscaping work. Remodeled woodsy sites are now smaller with curbs moved and new fencing and landscaping. Looks nice.

Ferry front campground

We love this small waterfront campground. Great beach and views with historic fort and bunkers. View if boats and cruise ships coming and going.

Breathtaking beauty on Washington's north coast!

So hard to pack up and leave camp this morning. The sunshine, blue skies, view to Vancouver Island, rocky coastline, sandy beach, tidepools, rush of the waves, sightings of whales, dolphins, otters, bald eagles, raccoons, cruise ships and freighters are hard to leave behind! I take more pictures of this place than any other, as its beauty is diverse and peaceful. Woodsy private campsites, with some overlooking the rocky cliffs, and terraced grassy campsites with hookups, this campground attracts locals as well as international campers. Many campers roll in with kayaks and bikes. Sit and read your book with a view of take an adventure. This place has it all!

Popular Ocean Camground

Though this campground was very popular with all types of campers, including large RV's, we just didn't understand the draw. It seemed less maintained and overgrown, with long trails to beach, than our favorite oceanfront campgrounds. (See my other reviews). Large campground with over 150 sites. Very hard to tell when looking at map or reservation site, what the site is really like. This campground had all types of sites, from dark and woodsy, to bright and sunny. Worth a drive through before deciding on a site.

Beautiful Oceanfront Campground!

Grayland Beach State Park is made up of an older section, farther from the beach, and a newer section, up against the dunes. As campers leave, volunteers come through to pick up and rake each site. Sites are private and many have woodsy borders. Easy beach trails.

Woodsy Campground on Chuckanut Drive

This campground is woodsy and sites are close together. It is better for tenters. If you have kayaks, bring them! Gorgeous to paddle along the cliffs of Chuckanut Drive! There are train tracks very close by, so expect to hear the trains all day and at night.

Peaceful woodsy camp at the lake

This campground is nestled in the woods along the shore of Mayfield Lake. Shady campground with water fun on lake nearby. Boat ramp in camp and ample places to park boat trailers/boats in camp. Some campsites are right along the shore! Showers are clean and take quarters. Very attentive camp staff!

Quiet grassy campground

Nice quiet campground with grassy sites. One loop contains hookup and non hookup sites and waterfront tent sites. Playground, day use and swimming area. The swimming area is overrun with geese and their mess.

Gorgeous RV park with a great view!

In the cute little fishing town of Garibaldi, on the Oregon Coast, we found this gem of an RV park. Waterfront, full hookup sites with a great view led us to build a fire in fire pit provided and sit outside in December! This town will be rocking when it's crabbing or fishing season. Short walk to marina, store, restaurants.

Front Row Pacific Ocean!

The website contains a fabulous video that led us to this RV park. The entrance to the oceanfront terraced sites will take your breathe away! Wooded sites are also available. The ladies at the office and camp store were very friendly and gave a us a bag of saltwater taffy upon arrival because we were new guests!

Quiet and Beautiful, up in the forest!

Coho Campground sits on the Wynoochee Lake at the Wynoochee Dam. Lush forest, tall trees, and moss make this place so beautiful and a magical campground for kids to play in! Campsites are private and shady. In spring, piles of wood are stacked in piles all over, from those which fell in winter. The lake has a great day use area and the campground also has yurts, with a lake view.

Forest, River, hood Canal

Perfect spot for saltwater activities including clamming, oysters, crabbing and shrimp, hiking and watching fall salmon running! This state park has a variety is sites, from tent, hookup, cabin, group camp sites, and platform tents. Great hiking trails and salmon running in the river in fall. We watched two bald eagles building a nest in a tree near the river one late winter.

Summer Heat

This is where we head to get some summer heat as soon as school is out. Full hookups, hot sun, lush green, and water to cool off! Those who are critical of this campground are annoyed with the sprinkler schedule which goes off at a certain time in each campsite, Monday-Friday, regardless of tents and things laying around. When we have tenters with us, we slide the tents onto the paved site with our RV, according to watering times, posted on the board near the bathrooms. But how would it stay so nice and green if they didn't water? Swimming area has concessions and camp store. Ball fields, tennis and basketball courts, docks for mooring boats or jet skis are available to campers, boat launch also.

Our Oceanfront Property!

One of our faves. Doesn't matter what the weather if you are in an rv, you are right on the Pacific Ocean! Front row view. No water hookups or campfires in sites, but you can have a campfire on the beach nice tiny town to walk up the hill to shop or get coffee. Campsites here are not private, but very close together with no bushes or trees. Wouldn't have dreamed of camping here with little kids and a tent, but since getting an RV, this is our favorite spot.
