    We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our 101 tour around the Olympic Peninsula. It's First Come, First Served, and like the other old campgrounds in the Olympic National Park, it's pretty much meant for tent camping- meaning that there are not a whole heck of a lot of spaces suitable for a trailer our size. We got site 55, a pull through. All sites are $20 per night, $10 with the Interagency Senior Pass. (Checkout time is 11 AM, so I would suggest getting there as close to possible to that time in order to get a suitable spot.)

    What struck me about this campground were the incredible old trees. Just beautiful. There are also lots of crows, which can be very loud, especially in the morning.

    The bathrooms are definitely dated (like the rest of the CG), but there are flush toilets, running water, as well as water spigots right outside. There's also trash service.

    The CG is a short drive (about 1 1/2 miles) to Rialto Beach- a typical north Washington coastal beach, with rough surf, rocky beach and lots of dead "skeleton" trees. We were lucky enough to see several harbor seals close to the beach the two nights that we went up there. It was heavily fogged in when we were there, but that just added to the atmosphere. [:D]

    We used the CG as a base for our drive to the Hoh rainforest, which is definitely worth the trip. Big Cedar Tree is also a short drive down the 101 and is also worth a stop.

    The CG is about 10 miles from Forks, which has a laundromat and nice grocery store.
