Olympic’s best kept and most wild secret, the Staircase Campground is located in a vast cathedral of ancient forest just a stone’s throw from the Skokomish River. It may not be the ends of the earth, but it embraces all that is wild and timeless in a world that is forever hurried. The Staircase hides in the southeastern corner of Olympic National Park at the very end of a gravel road. Here you’ll find room for a 21-foot RV, flush toilets, and potable water. You may want to stay forever, but 14 days is all you’ll get.
