We are closed until May 1, 2020 but available now for booking the May-August Season 

OUR CAMPING EXPERIENCE - One or more sites can be had on the large open lawn area that's easy for RV parking and tent camping.  We also have a secluded new Ridge site now open for tent camping. Accessed by foot only, take the steep trail at the center-back of the lawn area uphill some 30 feet south adding 30 feet elevation. The ridge is home to the neighborhood's second highest point and the property's largest old growth.  The site is ~15' above Dolly Varden Drive, where you may park for closer vehicle access via a steep roadside climb.  The site will be very private as this road has no residences and little if any traffic.  The clearing is surrounded by plants and well-hidden from the rest of the property and all other structures. 

In other photos we show tent use of the large lawn area where you may find camping more convenient. Other than adjacent to the owner's carport, the entire grass area of approximately a half acre is available for your camping use on a first-set up, first-served basis.  If you get here and your first choice is available, take it.  

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 sunsets are often world-class photography opportunities.  Many bring firewood for beach campfires.  Swimming is not recommended due to undertow.

Many Rialto sunset videos and other regional attractions are incorporated into the Facebook page Twilight967 for local radio station  KBDB 96.7 FM.

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. Dogs are allowed on leash north to Ellen Creek. 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, and Second Beach a 1-1/4 mile hike to secluded beaches.  Downhill from Second Beach parking, the tsunami evacuation trail leads to the south end of First Beach, and this is less than a mile round trip from parking. 

The immediate neighborhood is a older sub-development with investment in recent years.  Zoning is mixed-use rural with open fields, some camping, some vacation rentals, some residences, and some livestock.  

ACCOMMODATIONS AND SEASONAL NOTES

We provide a regularly maintained porta potty for campers use only from May-August.  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.  

The owner is typically on site for a portion of the offered season. Limited hot and unlimited cold water at the outdoor sink will be available during season. Rainwater collection is available in remaining months. 110 volt charging station and assorted recreational equipment in the carport is available to campers for their use during their stay, including hand truck, shovel, tarp, clam digger, fishing rods and limited gear. 

Additional services are available with a discounted group rate;  Surfing lessons, Fishing guides, Hiking tours, ATV Rentals and even horseback riding on trails or the sand beaches.

WI-FI and CELL SERVICE

Verizon Wireless provides LTE coverage to the location a speeds that are seasonally marginal.  They support a cordless phone with domestic calls enabled for guest use that we provide in the outside sink area.  We do not offer wi-fi in 2019, but currently plan to offer guests 40Mbs downloads in the 2020 peak season.  

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 or have a satellite GPS system.   

FIRE POLICY -  An area for a small campfire (use subject to seasonal restrictions) is adjacent to the Ridge camp site.  Campers may dig your own 2 foot diameter fire pit on any lawn area site and use subject to seasonal restrictions.  Campers are responsible for tending to and completely extinguishing your with water any fire leaving your immediate attention.   We provide a bucket and water source at the outdoor sink

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.  The restaurant offers eat-in or take-out dining with hours varied seasonally and you can phone in your order.  Groceries and fuel and convenience take-out is also available in La Push at the Lonesome Creek Store.  The Rivers Edge Restaurant is La Push is another dining choice with excellent waterfront location.   Forks supports a Subway, food trucks and several other dining choices, as well as laundry, provisions, hardware and auto parts. 

REGIONAL ATTRACTIONS

If your 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. 

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.   Continue further east to Neah Bay and secure a Makah Recreational use permit for access the world-famous Cape Flattery and Shi Shi Beach trails.  

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.

This campsite was awesome! The porta potty was super clean and well-kept, and the area was super quiet and peaceful!

If you are looking for a place to set up camp for the night this site gets the job done! I’m not sure what I was expecting, but the camp site area is very close to main house and houses surrounded. Basically camping on a lawn between two houses. But it works! The bathroom was clean and running water was a plus. The neighborhood felt safe and it was a few min drive from the beach! It worked for us.

Mark was the greatest host anyone could ask for. The site is more like a backyard than the wilderness. We ended up moving to Mora campground the next morning which was beautiful.

Somewhat as described. "Sites" not labeled, and a small hole dug in the dirt for a fire pit didn't give a real camping vibe. Felt more like trespassing in a Rando's yard.
