2023 season update -- DO NOT BOOK THIS SITE IF YOU ARE NOT CAPABLE OF PACKING OUT ALL OF YOUR GARBAGE AND REMOVING IT FROM THE PROPERTY. TWICE THIS SEASON I HAVE BLACKLISTED CAMPERS THAT HAVE LEFT BAGS OF TRASH FOR COLLECTION SERVICE THAT DOES NOT EXIST, LEADING TO ANIMALS GETTING INTO IT AND SPREADING TRASH OVER THE NEIGHBORHOOD. YOU WILL BE BLACKLISTED IF YOU CAN'T CAMP RESPONSIBLY. This is an undeveloped lot in a mixed improved rural residential neighborhood that in the process of being discovered for its superior proximity to the river and Rialto Beach. Learn more about this land: Sanican support starts May 3, 2021.  OUR CAMPING EXPERIENCE -  We are located in a rural residential neighborhood,  but you'll enjoy more distance than a typical campsite.  One or more sites can be had on the large open lawn area that's easy for RV parking and tent camping, but we have limited to one booking per night currently.   In other photos we show tent use of the large lawn area where you may find camping more convenient. The entire grass area of approximately a half acre is available for your camping use on a first-set up, first-served basis. Please enjoy but DO NOT TOUCH our kinetic wind sculpture by Andrew Carson.  Do not play or throw anything in vicinity of the metal and glass art.  Thank you! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION -- You're camping in one of the closest sites to Rialto Beach  and Olympic National Park.  Our land is part of a mixed use rural neighborhood immediately adjacent to the Clallam County River Park. While near the ever booked Mora campground,  we limit our campers and that means you will enjoy substantial land use compared to typical state park camp sites. Rialto Beach is open.  There is no RV turnaround at Rialto Beach.  Consider biking from the campsite as sunset parking can be crowded.   Rialto sunsets are often world-class photography opportunities.  Many Rialto sunset videos and other regional attractions are incorporated into the Facebook page Twilight967 for local radio station  KBDB 96.7 FM. Popular beach activities include firewood for campfires -- currently only allowed in a limited number of park picnic location fire pits.  Swimming is not recommended due to serious undertow.  However, strong swimmers with wet suits regularly surf strong waves until sunset. The best beach hike goes up Rialto Beach to the Hole in The Wall outcropping.  This is best accomplished around low tides, so check the tables at the Mora campground ranger station. In a recent study, Olympic National Park ranks seven in the top ten parks for hiking with dogs.  Friendly trail options include the beaches between the Hoh and Quinault Reservations and Rialto Beach north to Ellen Creek. Just beyond Ellen Creek is Hole in the Wall, a rock formation of tourist interest.  Trail passage beyond this point is impacted by tides, so be aware of the cycle. Rialto Beach has summer season handicap access from the parking lot to a beach viewing site, and toilet facilities year-round.  The trailhead is the only access for 17 miles of roadless Pacific Coast trail until the Ranger Station at Lake Ozette.  Nearby Mora Campground has trailheads for the Slough and James Pond trails. Boat ramps are nearby just off the 110 Spur where the Sol Duc and Dicky Rivers meet the Quillayute.  On the way to LaPush, Third Beach trail is a 1-1/2 mile hike.  Parking is very limited and has recently been overcrowded.  ACCOMMODATIONS AND SEASONAL NOTES Owner is available by text, but offsite for the 2022 season.   We provide a regularly maintained porta potty for campers use only from May 3rd 2021 - through mid September.  The grounds are too wet to support the maintenance truck by mid September until May, so we close seasonally.   Off-season dry camping offers will be selectively considered and a sharply reduced rate.  Site is located a short walk to River Park Road and the Clallam County Park's vault toilet.   The private road off Richwine that allows pedestrian traffic to the park.   WI-FI and CELL SERVICE Verizon Wireless provides LTE coverage to the location a speeds that are seasonally marginal. Other carriers phone and data services may be marginal to non-existent outside of Forks, so those subscribers are advised download our driving directions before leaving Forks, have a satellite GPS system, or paper map.  FIRE POLICY -  We are located in Fire District 6.Outdoor cooking fires are allowed consistent with current burn ban information posted to the Current Issues section of the county home page.   DINING and COMMERCE Three Rivers Resort on State Route 110 at Mora road at 2 miles away is the closest store with grocery provisions.  The general store has a selection of native jewelry and art for sale.  Basic provisions and select Post Office services are available at Lonesome Creek Store, however Forks is 20 minutes away with a variety of services, dining and provisions. REGIONAL ATTRACTIONS If you tire of the coast here, try a totally different coast at Ruby Beach 30 miles south.   Before that, you can take the Oil City Road several miles down the Hoe River to park at the mouth of the river to the Pacific.  Trail crosses a creek.  HOH RESERVATION MAY BE CLOSED AT THIS TIME. Divert from 101 South via the Moclips Highway that goes to a funky beach town, and you can drive your vehicle onto a hard packed sand beach access from various points on the State Route 109 Hidden Coast.   Further south, Quinault Beach Resort and Casino in Ocean Shores is a full-service hotel, resort and casino on the beach.  Many regional attractions are incorporated into the Facebook page Twilight967 for local radio station  KBDB 96.7 FM. To the east, Lake Crescent is on the 101 route to Forks, and the Spruce Rail Tunnel is a new attraction on the Olympic Discover Trail.  Port Angeles is a port city with daily ferry visitors from Victoria BC and a redeveloping downtown and waterfront.  Olympic Game Farm in Sequim is a great in-car photo safari experience.  Sequim is overrun with retirees from California.  Discovery Bay has a great nature preserve over the reclaimed marsh. The rail cars used to sell ice cream treats for kids and now house one of two Discovery Bay cannabis shops.  Port Townsend is the Jefferson County seat, and Astorian-age port of departure for the Alaska gold rush with older architecture of interest and an arts and culture hub.   Port Gamble is a company town of preserved historic significance.   To the Northeast,  State Route 113 north passes unmarked Beaver Falls and Beaver Lake, which is a popular fishing facility.    At State Route 112, go east the coastal villages of Clallam Bay and Seiku.   The Makah Nation and Neah Bay are expected to remain closed until October 1, 2021. Alternatively, the Hoko-Ozette Road starts with a historic farm land, and takes you past several tree farms to a remote Lake Ozette.   Also accessed here are the Ozette ocean trails in Olympic National Park Land.   The Parks are generally open.

Affordable & Convenient
We stayed here a few days while exploring the coast and national park. Let's be honest, it's just a small empty grassy lot with a port-a-potty but it worked great for us since we were out from dawn to dusk. It does sit between to homes on a quiet street, but traffic was minimal and it worked well for us. Price was great for what you're getting as well. If you're looking for a nice campsite with a view and places to explore, I'd look elsewhere, but if you're looking for somewhere safe to crash and night and then get back out exploring, this place works great. I'd book it again. Affordable, safe, quiet, close to the beach, bathroom on site and we were happy with it for the 4 nights we stayed here.

As described: quiet, cozy, close to Rialto. Definitely more secluded and private than the NP campground. We would definitely stay there again. Recommended!!! Thank you, Mark!

Quiet clearing minutes from Rialto
If you are just looking for a spot to park your rv just off the road in a neighhood near Rialto beach, then it works. Anywhere but the drive right off the road was not level and we didn't feel comfortable even pulling our rv anywhere else on the property. Probably would work better for tent campers. But it was nice to watch the sunset at Rialto and not have far to go until we were parked for the night.

Served the purpose as a safe, quiet place to spend the night. Porta potty is slightly overdue for service but not too bad. There are security cameras on the property that were not disclosed in the listing.

The title is accurate, it’s a grassy meadow very close to Rialto beach. We were able to pack up and get to Rialto beach parking in the morning before it was full. Make sure you bring all your own equipment and pack out your own garbage.

No water
No water or any amenities. The open area was nice and clean but the lack of coverage and any water source was not good
