We stayed at this CG for two nights in August 2018, as part of our 101 tour around the Olympic Peninsula. It is a national forest campground, with a rate of $20 per night, $10 with the Interagency Senior Pass.

The sites are generally quite large, with gravel pads. We arrived on Friday afternoon, and had our choice of some nice ones. We chose site #15 in the mid loop. If we return, we'd probably stay in the far (upper?) loop, as there is less car traffic up there.

This is a typical NF campground, with vault toilets (with automatic lights), trash service and water spigots. There is a campground host, as well as frequent ranger patrols. The ranger who was around when we were there was extremely helpful.

There are some beautiful day-use picnic shelters scattered around in the campground, and apparently it *can* get noisy when they are in use. The only noise we experienced was from some folks in the site behind us- I like to think that they just didn't realize how their voice travelled...

The CG is located close to Lake Cushman and the Staircase area of Olympic National Park. (As an aside, we did go into the park and look at the Staircase CG- with the exception of one or two sites, it's really not set up for trailers.)

Hoodsport is about a 10 minute drive. There is a grocery store there, as well as some restaurants on Hood Canal.
