I don't have a lot to add to what BigDog and others have said, but to reiterate, if you only go over to Victoria for the day, don't drive. You can see the downtown area easily on foot, and there are bus tours (double deckers) out to Burchart Gardens and other area highlights.

We plan to camp out at Klaloch next weekend. Be the first time out there in the winter. Some of the sites are along the top of the bluff overlooking the ocean, so very scenic.

10 plus years ago we went up the Quinalt River valley to the end of the road and camped at a NP campground there. We were in a VW van, but there were some fair sized vehicles out there.

Neah Bay is an interesting place to visit. It is in the Makah reservation, so you are required to buy a pass from the tribe. No big deal, not expensive at all. Also, the sign on the road up to Cape Flattery says no RVs. Good idea. It is a real washboard (gravel).

Welcome to Washington. Cruzer and others gave you good information. There is a rv park and small resturant at Sol duc hot springs.The ferry your asking about is www.cohoferry.com
If you just want to see Victoria just go by foot ferry. Even if you want to go to Buchart Gardens there is a tour bus in front of the Empress Hotel which is nice to walk through.Also the tour of Victoria is well worth it as it takes you around the out skirts od the city.Both places Port townsand is wonderful! and Port Angles is a great central location. the lighthouse in Squim is 7 mile walk one way.
I hope this helps. Check out Hello BC.com and wa. state has wonderful state RV parkswith hook ups.Washington state parks.gov

Go up the Queets River on the west side of the park. Probably the nicest river, most interesting rain forest in the whole park. Franklin Roosevelt visited the area and was alarmed at the clear cutting going on (he should see it now)so he made this a extension of the park. PS - don't tell anyone else.

We were there First week of June in 2002. From OR we went to Forks and stayed there a few days for the rain forest.
From Forks we went to Sequim. We were looking for a campground in PA, but missed it and wound up at the KOA. When we woke up the next morning and opened the windshield curtains, we were really glad we were at the KOA. Had a terrific view of the snow capped mountain peaks.
We also took the Saturn up Deer Park RD. We couldn't make it all the way to the top. When we got to where the Ranger Station was we made a K turn because there was about 2" snow and more coming down.
Deer Park rd is a fun ride. Very twisty and narrow.
