Great place to camp!
This place is awesome! Nice roomy sites. New sturdy picnic tables. A beautiful river just steps away and a great kids playground area. Really close to town and pretty close to the coastal beaches. They even have a store on site. Owner Mitch is really nice and it is a great family business to support.
Mitch was an awesome host! His campsite is new so we were there with few families. We would highly recommend this site to anyone as well as our close family and friends. It’s easily, accessible, clean, good size spots, and did we mention how great Mitch was?! Very friendly and it felt safe, nice little rugged trail to the river.
All in all we had a great 2 night camping stay there.
Let me preface this with...this is not your stereotypical campground. If you're into glamping, this might not be the spot for you (I'm basically addressing all the Karens); HOWEVER, in 19 days of July camping up and down the western coast (LA to northern WA), THIS WAS MY FAVORITE SPOT.
I was taken aback at first when pulling into our spot, because this city girl was used to campsites that are almost too groomed, but that sentiment lasted all of 30 seconds. It's nature, after all. You are surrounded by beautiful trees. You can hear the Sol Duc river, which is anywhere between 20-50 steps away, depending which route you go. Apparently, it is also a prime fishing spot, which I saw secondhand from two camp neighbors/fishermen.
There are no showers (but hey, that's what the river and potable water is for). There are 2 portable toilets...both were very well maintained in terms of cleanliness. (I will say, our first night, they were both quiet full, but that was remedied before I got up the next morning). All the campsites come with a table and fire pit, and they are all different shapes and sizes. I saw a few that were smaller and more intimate (room for maybe a tent and a car), and then some that were perfect for a large group. My roommate and I had site #21. It was perfect for our jeep, two tents and camping chairs, plus all of our supplies. We probably could've fit two more tents and two more cars, in all honesty. It was private in the sense that you couldn't really see or hear the neighbors on each side of us with the natural landscape barrier, but we never felt alone. Additionally, we were just close enough to the main river path, but we also had our own little private hilly path (with rope guide) that led down to a mini "lagoon" on the river.
In regards to the river, there are different paths. You might have to step over a small fallen tree, or push a branch or two out of the way to get there. If that bothers you, or you like complaining, don't come here. I wouldn't want to deal with you, so the awesome owner Mitch (more on him later) shouldn't have to either. HOWEVER, if you are willing to put in the MINIMAL work to get to the river, you should absolutely come here. The sunsets are stunning. The river is great for swimming, tubing, fishing, even kayaking. Not to mention, the owner Mitch has put in time to assist his guests with the rope aids that help you down the steeper paths to the river.
As for Mitch, this guy is a good dude. I couldn't be happier to support a small, private campground owner like him. His response time was great (10-30 minutes for me via Hipcamp). He did 1-2 drive-bys a day, checking in to make sure that everything was okay. If you have time to chat with him, he's super nice, knows a lot about fishing, and will give any recommendations he can...like hiking in the Hoh Rainforest which is a short 30 minute drive away. EXTRA BONUS...you can make a request with him to do a full day rental of a kayak. There is a little store at the entrance. It is not fully stocked like your typical store, but surprisingly has what you need but most likely forgot or ran out of.
Overall, I absolutely LOVED my experience at this campground, and have already recommended it to all my camping and adventure driven friends. It will be my new go-to spot for any return trips to the area.
We had to take a last minute trip and we’re concerned about finding a site for our family of 7. Mitch was totally flexible and we were able to book the morning we left with no issues. He called to check in on our way up and informed us he had put us in a bigger more private site and met us when we got there! He was so welcoming and informative! Our site was huge and close to the play area and portapotties (which we raved were the cleanest we’ve ever seen!!) The river is beautiful and just a short walk from camp. There is a bit of a steep slope but there is a rope to help you balance and it was easy enough for my 6 year old to do by himself. This is a very kid friendly campground and it was really exciting for my kids to have so many other kids and dogs to play with! I highly recommend this site and will happily go back next time we are in Forks!!
Best woodsy/river camping around!
The sites are private, clean and situated perfectly for enjoying nature and the river. There are nice children's toys, volleyball poles, sani-cans and they keep a tank of water onsite in case of fire. There are huge old growth stumps with new trees growing out of them, great fishing holes and swimming areas. Best campground that I have been to in a long while!
Lovely stay here. New camp site. Clean portable toilets. Look for the brown campground flag to turn in (before hitting the bridge of Sul doc River) and follow the path to the right down into campsite. Mitch checked in and asked how I was doing as a solo camper.
We will be back
Beautiful campground on a great river for swimming and fishing (head upriver from where you come out from the trail). Host was very nice. Each site is a bit different layout so talk to them if you have odd dimensions. Different levels of privacy-ours felt very private. Great location for exploring the area.
