Olympic Penninsula Campgrouds

I'm looking for 3 good campground recommendations on Washington's Olympic Penninsula loop, one in the east (Eldon, Brinnon area), one in the north (Sequim, Port Angeles area) and one in the west (Forks area). We will be traveling there the first couple of weeks in July with my 11 and 12 year old grand kids. Does anyone have one in mind that you were happy with that can accommodate a 41 foot MH? As a minimum, I would prefer electric connections, but with 2 kids, water and sewer would be an added bonus.

Thanks,
Ken

Try Dosewolups State Park just south of Brinnon on the Hood Canal. Go to the Washington State Park website and look at what is available. It books quickly, but has about 50 hookup sites. We usually are there 1 to 2x per summer. There is a state park in Sequim and many private parks in that area.

Good Luck
Arnold

Salt Creek County Park, just west of Port Angeles, first come, first served, beautiful views across the straits looking into Canada. The sites are all terraced an have 50A and water. A couple years ago it was $22 a night.

We just drove through Fort Flagler State Park today. They have 2 campgrounds - 1 is very wooded and would not be good for you but the other is very open, flat and on the bay. You would definitely fit in the spaces. The views are gorgeous. They do have some full hookups. This is very close to Port Townsend which would have lot for the kids to do including a Sea Life Museum where they could touch starfish, etc. Lots of water activities in the area. For Forks, I would suggest the only RV park - Forks 101 RV. We've stayed there with our 40'. Definitely call for reservations and state your size. As you go around the western side of the Peninsula there really is hardly anything for a long motorhome. In fact, there are very little spots to even pull over to the side of the road. It all heavily forested and long stretches with no businesses. Good luck and have fun with the grandchildren!

The last time we made the trip around it was in a much smaller MH. We stayed at the Forest Service parks but it was only 17' long. Now we stay at my daughters place in Sequim and drive from there.

Ken,

Here are three that we have used and like. The Waterfront at Potlatch only has two pull-throughs and is close to the highway but we like the setting.

We're 38 feet plus toad making the rig about 57 feet total length and can get in and out of these parks OK.

The Waterfront At Potlatch

Sequim's Gilgal Oasis RV Park

Forks 101 RV Park

We live near Sequim. Feel free to contact us via PM here on the board for info or assistance while in the area.

Enjoy your visit.

We stayed there in mid May and really enjoyed the campground.....as said, the view cannot be beat.

X2 on Salt Creek. It is a Clallam County Park. Here is their web site:
Salt Creek Recreation Area

We were there last year in the Spring. As you can see it was terribly overcrowded.

Thanks, folks, for all the great suggestions. I managed to get reservations at Dosewallips State Park, Gilgal's Oasis in Sequim and pending reservations at Quileute Oceanside Resort RV park in La Push. I would have really liked to get reservations at Salt Creek but the only site left required a handicap sticker and I don't qualify. If I weren't going with my grandkids, I would have tried for the first come/first served sites.

Now my wife tells me she is interested in the Cascade Loop after we drop off the grandkids. Starting new research soon.

Thanks again,
Ken
