This is the perfect spot on the Duckabush river in the heart of the Olympic National Forest. We offer a very large grass lot in a community just south of Brinnon. There are two RV electricity plugins available and ample room for tents.  Your stay includes access to a small cabin that opens up as a bar and has a full sized refrigerator to use as needed. The lot comes complete with a fire pit (please observe local burn restrictions) and a wheelchair accessible portable potty that is cleaned and serviced regularly. For a special touch, the sound of the river is always playing in the background. Be sure to enjoy the large open space and bring your favorite lawn toys. There is so much room to spread out and when it's time to come together, there is a well lit cabana and picnic table to share meals or play board games/cards. 

There is so much to do here you will want to book multiple trips to fit it all in! The river is just a few steps away and during high tide you can sit your chairs in the water and relax. Or, paddle around on your kayaks and paddle boards. You could even paddle out to the Hood Canal. During low tide, the river runs more swiftly and is better enjoyed from the beach or an experienced tuber could shoot the rapids. If you have bigger water toys, boats and jet skis can be launched at nearby public boat launches for a day on the canal. 

If hiking is your thing you are in luck! The Duckabush trail head is about a mile away and hosts hikers and horseback riding. The Hamma Hamma recreation area with Lena Lake hikes is just 25 minutes away and there are a host of other hikes within close proximity.

There is a beautiful waterfall in Brinnon that is worth the 12 minute drive and short hike in. Dosewallips State Park and Pleasant Harbor Marina are also just minutes away.

If you don't feel like cooking and want to eat local, the Geoduck Tavern was put on the map by Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-in's and Dives. It is just a 5 minute drive. Or the Pleasant Harbor Marina has a restaurant on limited hours as well as a coffee shop for the die hard latte drinker.

The Brinnon Elk herd travel through this area often and bed down in the park across the street. Don't be surprised if you hear them bugling at night. You will also see Bald Eagles soaring overhead and shore birds chirping as they glide along the river.

Nature is calling, so book your stay and explore the Duckabush. It will be your new favorite place to visit and you will understand why we call it Paradise on the Duckabush.

This spot really is paradise! We had such a fun time playing in the river and spending time together at this camp. I wish we could go back next weekend!

First ever camp trip was a success!

This place was gorgeous! Just like the pictures, but even better. This was our first ever camp trip and with 5 kids, the River was a hit. Kitchen was great to have so we didn’t have to worry about a bulky cooler with an already full car. Totally would recommend! Loved that they included some things to do because the waterfall nearby was EVERYTHING! I would say screenshot/print all check in directions and recipes in advance because there was no cell service for my husband or myself. Totally fine because we wanted to unplug but glad I had all information already on hand (ie lock box code for kitchen and portapotty) The portapotty was the cleanest any of us had ever seen. This place was truly a gem.

I am so glad you loved it as much as we do. And I’m glad you found the waterfall! It’s our favorite. Yes, it truly is an unplugged retreat. We have found that Verizon cellular service works ok but all the others are definitely spotty at best.

Lisa was a wonderful host! She offered detailed information in advance to ensure a smooth arrival at the property and quickly responded to a question we had.

The property itself is a delightful slice of paradise right on the banks of the Duckabush River The lulling sounds of cascading waters was a treat along with the thoughtful amenities including cafe lit gazebo, well placed fire pit, additional refrigerator option and portaloo. We hope to come visit again soon

The camp site was great! The river was beautiful and I loved falling asleep to the sounds! Great amenities, great directions and great location. The grass can get a little muddie with alot of rain, so a tarp under a twnt is a must, but it was perfect

This is a great site for a relaxing stay. The covered picnic table area was key for us as we stayed here over a very rainy weekend. The little shed with the fridge was also very convenient - a good place to keep supplies near the picnic tables and campfire.

I highly recommend this site for either tent camping or RV/trailer camping and would go back to this site if I'm in the area again.
