Located 20 minutes west of downtown Port Angeles, directly across US-101 from Lake Sutherland, and 10 minutes from Lake Crescent Beach, it's the perfect homebase for your peninsula adventures!

The campground is on 33 acres of private forestland, surrounded on three sides by DNR land. The entire property is forested and was partially harvested around 1990. Dominated by young stands of Alder and mixed conifer species, you'll enjoy a vibrant habitat for wildlife, especially birds.

As you gain in elevation on the old timber roads (walking only) you'll discover moss-covered glacial erratic boulders, aged big leaf maple, towering grand fir, and western red cedar.

Wander Joyfully!

GREAT place to camp / exceptional host! Erin has created a well thought through camp ground. Everything was just as listed. Really close to Olympic NP - and a general store right around the corner in case you forgot anything.

Site two - relaxing by the fire.

This place was a delightful spot to stay! Firewood available for an affordable price and cozy camp sites with fire pits. The bathrooms were very clean and it was a quiet area overall. Would definitely come back!

Great location. Easy to find and peaceful setting. I arrived late and left early on my single day stay so I didn't get a chance to experience too much but there were great trees and great star views at night.

Erin is great host. The sites are perfect size for camping. Just wish she had water on site. Perfect location for going around Crescent Lake.

We stayed in site #1. Perfect size for 2 people, would have been fine for our family of 5 as well had we brought the kids. There was a bark padded section of the site that fit our medium size tent perfectly and with room to spare. Although it was SaniKans, they were cleaner than some park bathrooms we have visited. The campsite is only 10 minutes from lake crescent and 6 minutes from lake Sutherland. Right next to a quick mart in case you forget something. The host Erin was a great communicator and answered very quickly. No running water but bringing a water jug did the trick. Highly recommend!

Great campsite, awesome location good amenities. A little expensive for what you get tho. At that price range compared to most state parks and other campsites for half of that and they often have flushing toilets and showers.

Erin was the quintessential host for some tired bikepackers! This spot is well maintained and so much better than the crowded state and national park campsites if you don't mind dry camping. Since we rolled in on 2 wheels, she not only offered use of her camp chairs, but also a gallon of water. Also is walking distance to the little market! We left a pair of bike shorts and she promptly messaged us about a way to return them to us. Way above and beyond our expectarions!
