Trains

We didn't mind the noise of the trains at night but many other campers complained. There are also a lot of local activities that take place at this park. The weekend we stayed here there was a mountain bike race taking place. It is something to check in advance if you are looking for a quiet getaway. Larrabee may not be your best choice!

great location

We have stayed here many times. This campground has everything you need for a nice getaway. The sites are somewhat private, the bathrooms are sufficient, and there are trails to explore close by. The campground IS in the National Park, so make sure you have your Access Park Pass or you must pay the entrance fee to the park. Also keep in mind that National Park rules apply to dogs. So you will want to keep your pet leashed at all times, or risk a hefty fine.

camping + hot springs!

Sol Duc campground is great! After exploring and hiking all day you can retreat to the hot springs for a soak! AND they now offer a reservation system so you no longer have to race there with your fingers crossed you'll find a spot! win/win!

great for families

This campground is great for families and people with kids. There are playgrounds near the bathrooms. The bathrooms have showers, and are clean and accessible. You can take a short walk down to the spit to explore the sandy beaches. You are a short drive from the Olympic Game Farm, well worth a visit. Check it out online, the kids will love feeding the buffalo and elk.

Our favorite Washington Coast campground

We love Mora! It's in a perfect spot. Just a short walk lands you at Rialto Beach. From there you can walk out to Hole in the Wall.
the campground itself has good facilities. Clean bathrooms, large sites and plenty of privacy. Get there early during the summer months if you want to get a good spot!

Great location!

We lucked out and got a spot at this campground on a Saturday in the middle of the busy summer months. It's a perfect spot to explore the park!

great location

This is a small campground. Most sites are large and have a lot of privacy. There is an overlook that is easily accessible to view the falls, or you can take a short hike down some switchbacks to the river below. The campground is located near many Olympic Peninsula hiking opportunities!

great location

This small, first come first served, campground on the Olympic Peninsula is situated in a great place to enjoy the National Park. The Lake is beautiful.

Group site

The group site at Kalaloch is amazing! It's no where near the rest of the campground. There is a gated road that leads you to your private site! Large enough for big groups, and plenty of space to spread out. It's right on a cliff overlooking the ocean so the views are incredible. It's hard to get a reservation in the summer months, but well worth planning ahead to secure this site!

Convenient location

This campground is made up of two parts, the upper and lower. The lower campground is right on the beach. No privacy and no trees, but crazy beautiful views! The upper campground has several sites, most have plenty of privacy. There are 3-4 sites with water views, those sites are less private but the pay off is a beautiful view!

an Olympic Peninsula Gem!

Leave early on Friday and get a spot at the Hamma Hamma Campground! You can take a day hike to Lena Lake, or just explore the river from your campsite. It's such a great campground, we try to go several times each year. On a warm summer day there are some great swimming holes that are actually warm enough to enjoy! The sites are mostly private, and large! The bathrooms are pit toilets so they can get rough during the busy summer months, and there is no drinking water available, so be sure to bring your own water. But even with the stinky pit toilets, this campground is a real gem!

Great Campground

This is one of our go to spots to camp on the olympic peninsula. The views are incredible, most spots offer plenty of privacy, and the bathrooms are always clean and tidy. If you plan to go on a busy summer weekend you better get there quick because it always fills up fast!

crowded/no privacy

This campground is not a favorite of ours. The sites have very little privacy and the host was aggressive and unfriendly. We probably wouldn't stay here again. Too bad because it did have great views.

An olympic peninsula secret

This campground seems to be less popular than others on the olympic peninsula. It's located in a great location for day hikes and exploring. The campground itself is small and a bit dark, but there are several river front sites, and most sites offer at least a bit of privacy.

Quiet Lake/Small Campground

There are almost always spots available at Lake Leland, even on a weekend during the busy summer months. The campground itself is small, with a under 20 sites. Some sites don't offer much privacy however there are a few gems that give you privacy and a lake view. We have stayed here several times when everything else on the Peninsula was full.
