Our elwha river adventure.
What was it like staying here? It was beyond amazing. Our hosts were were friendly and welcoming. Dozer (English Mastiff) was a frequent guest to our campsite. The view was breathtaking. We watched the salmon spawning, the eagles soar, fell asleep the the sounds of the River and awakened to the ripples of the Elwha River. The rainy day didn’t deter us from fun. We slept like babies with the background music of the raindrops. The site was clean, easy to get to, directions were spot on and close to many fabulous must do attractions. Thank you Tammy and family. We will be returning!
Great views and location
This was my first Hipcamp stay, so I didn't know what to expect. We really enjoyed our stay (my 13 year old son and I). Positives are the location. Right on the Elwa river. As pretty as the pictures. Had a fun "lazy river" trip on our cheap inflatable rafts. There is a tire swing for adventurous. Canoes left out for anyone to use. Quick bike ride up to the start of a leg on Olympic Discovery trail. Plenty of running water to drink. Views where awesome. Away from the road so relatively free from street noise (though not completely "in the woods" for that feeling for total seclusion... more on that in a few).
For some, the lack of any signs of instruction or welcome from the host might be a plus (you are trusted to figure things out yourself), and at first I found it a little unsettling. It may just be a downside of Hipcamp app, but for the price, you should be able to reserve a specific site at a hipcamp location. Here there are 5 picnic table / fire pit set ups for each site. Of those, only 2 have a good degree of privacy from the other sites with trees around. The others seemed fairly close to each other and not a stick between them for privacy. Would be ok if you wanted to go with a few other campers and hang as a group. Also, above on a hill is a home serving as a bed and breakfast.
Good that all sites are drive ups (we have a van/rooftop tent) since it's first come first served, but FYI no platforms for tents on ground. I'd feel better returning if I knew I could reserve one of the more private spots (more of a Hipcamp limit though?) First come/first serve is not ideal when you are paying more than a national park fee for a spot and even they enable you to reserve specific sites. Would be great for group camping though.
I pay for privacy
I just want to clarify a few things for those who like privacy while camping, and would spend double or even triple the cost of a campground to get that. The description says on 50 acres. And that the sites are first come first served, if you ask the host. The location is beautiful, and the pictures are accurate in respect to what it looks like. However, when you pull up, all (now 6?) sites are crammed into a small section of the property directly down the hill from the host’s house. There is no privacy buffer between 4 of the 6. Also there is a cabin between the campsites and the house, just behind the sites. I booked when it was $50 per night which I thought was steep for camping. Now it says $75! I honestly love the location and the view that you get. But I would not come back for even $50/ night, being that there is absolutely no privacy.
Peaceful stay by the river
Tammy was very welcoming and showed us the property around, she was also very responsive on hipcamp. Well maintained property, only issue was the toilets were not cleaned frequently. Sound of the Elhwa river was a peaceful experience.
