Description

Tucked into the northern regions of Olympic National Park, this campground is the perfect launching point for tent campers and RVers to take a picturesque day hike with the family to photo-worthy Sol Duc Falls, as well as for longer adventures: both the High Divide Trail and the Seven Lakes Basin can be accessed from a nearby trailhead. Whatever the length of your adventure, make time to cross the road to hit Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort for dinner and a relaxing soak in the natural pools heated to 101° and 104°F. (Hot springs fees apply for adults and kids.)

Tips for snagging a campsite reservation

  • The campground is open mid-March through the end of October.
  • The campsites are split between those reservable in advance and those available on a first-come, first-served basis. All 17 RV sites are reservable in advance, as is the single group site.
  • Primitive camping is allowed during the winter off-season (as long as the road is open).
  • Camping fees vary, increasing for RV sites and the nonelectric group site.
  • Cancellations must be requested 48 hours in advance of your reservation for a refund. 
  • One ADA accessible campsite and two ADA RV sites are available. 
  • When to go

    The cooler shoulder seasons are the perfect time to enjoy the springs (open from mid-April through the end of October) without the summer crowds. Aim for a weekday stay and avoid holiday weekends if possible for the smallest crowds. A gray day with a light drizzle can also be a lovely time to visit the campground and springs.

    Beautiful campground right by the river - I think we stayed on campsite #5 when we backpacked around the Seven Lakes area. I loved waking up to the streaming river. It was so peaceful, and the people on the trail were incredibly friendly!

    It was pretty full so we had to spend a night off site eating for an opening. It was July but still chilly at night and we were able to watch fireworks over the water from one of the hiking trails. So close many trailheads that the first day we did little hikes to acclimate then did longer, bigger hikes over the week. A beautiful camp area with gorgeous scenery everywhere.

    We had 4 kids with us, so I booked the spot that looked like it had the most room for kids to run around. (I booked in advance as most of these spots get booked pretty early) The site was cramped and we didn't have much room to run. Luckily there were trails and the hot springs close by to get the energy out. This isn't the spot for relaxing camp adventures in nature, the place was pretty full and there was lots of people everywhere. The park itself was beautiful and I would love to return to visit more of it.

    Sol Duc campground is one of the most beautiful places I have ever camped. Nestled along the Sol Duc River in Northwest Olympic National Park, the campground is enveloped in a lush fairytale-like forest with every shade of green. The camp sites are all very well maintained by the National Park Service. One of the great things about camping in Olympic is that the abundance of trees gives every campsite a fair amount of privacy.

    A short hike from the campground is Sol Duc Falls. It's absolutely worth it for how easy it is to get to from the campground. If you're up for a more lengthy hike, you can continue past Sol Duc Falls to hike Lover's Lane.

    For a quiet soak in the hot tub pools, head over after dinner and you'll practically have the place to yourself.
