Halfway between the Sol Duc River and the Bogachiel.  Great sandy beach and gravel bars on Bogachiel River for sunning and swimming plus scheduled Salmon runs for fly-fishers

We have a five acre heavily wooded campsite with shaded glens for you to bring and pitch your tents.

Definitely NOT "glamping."

Free Wifi, firewood available, bath house with hot shower and flush-toilet, walking distance to two great fly-fishing rivers including the Sol Duc and the Bogachiel.

Minutes from Lake Pleasant for bass fishing, a few more to Lake Crescent for trout fishing, boating, kayaking and hiking this spectacular and mysterious lake.

Half-mile south of Full Service Resort with store, restaurant and gas pumps.

Resident Elk herd passes through often so be alert to wildlife. 

5 minutes to La Push Marina access to pleasure or fishing tours on Pacific Ocean.

We have up to ten private camp sites, depending on the weather.

It rains a lot here from October to March.  

During those months we have only 5 sites.  A little more cozy.

By spring of 2020 we hope to develop a gravel circle drive through the forest for more convenience getting to your site, year-round.

All sites have fire-ring and firewood is available.

When we arrived we felt a little unsure about the place. We were not sure about what to expect but we thought the site was going to be more isolated from the road. The campsite is at a lot with an empty trailer, pickups and an old school bus. Although we never met the host I texted him and he was very responsive and helpful. The site is very basic but it offered a bathroom, wifi, and free firewood which was great. We ended up meeting the other crew that was staying there and had a nice group campfire.

Shangria La Push isn't fancy but it gets the job done if you're looking for a low key place to stay for the night. The bathroom was clean, plenty of toilet paper, and a flush toilet. Water wasn't potable, but there was a shower. Probably won't be cell service but the wifi worked great.

My biggest concern was the fire pit. It's a wheel of some sort in the grass. It's a decent size but I didn't find it completely safe. Early on in the fire, the grass next to the pit caught on fire,; we quickly put it out and after dousing the grass with water, there were no more issues. There was plenty of free firewood.

There is lots of space to set up tents or chairs, but note that the ground is quite bumpy. Using a camp mat or mattress would probably make for more comfortable sleeping, without any it was quite bumpy.

A pretty low key spot to park your campervan or throw up a tent. There's quite a number of spots around the property to put up a tent. There's a restroom with a toilet and shower which is big bonus. The location is prime being just a few minutes drive from Second Beach trailhead or Rialto Beach.

Dale greeted us on arrival and was very friendly and accommodating. He pointed out the several different areas available to set up our tent and asked about our plans for the weekend and suggested several local activities. There were a few other groups of campers so it’s not a totally private location but there are plenty of camping areas in little wooded nooks around the property so it was private enough for us. Clean heated bathroom and shower. WiFi. Fire wood available. Very convenient location for adventures around La Push and Olympic. Couldn’t have asked for much more!

Was a great place. Real true southern hospitality and will be back soon. They let us use their kayaks down the river that took 2 hours. The camping location was central and great amenities. Wifi was strong!

My friends and I had a great time staying here. The flush toilet, shower, and wifi were a welcome change from what we're used to at most campgrounds! Plus the free firewood--that probably saved us $20-30 for the weekend. Bring an axe if you have one--the firewood is cut thick and the campfire rings are petite. Our little hatchet couldn't cut it--literally--but we still made it work with the big logs. Location-wise, this is a great little base camp for going out and exploring the area---you're about 4 mi from La Push and the trailhead to 2nd beach, and about 5.5 mi or so to Rialto Beach for Hole in the Wall.

We stayed at the larger tent site with the picnic table and had plenty of room for 4 tents containing 6 people and 2 dogs. The other campers were courteous--we had no issues with noise or disturbances, day or night. I will echo what some other campers have said--this site has a very active mole creating small hills throughout the grassy area of the site. We did have to feel around for flatter areas to put the tents on. We could even hear the little critters at night under our pillows (through the earth), which was hilarious! Quiet enough to sleep through but you could hear the gentle burrowing sounds if you happened to be awake already.

Dale was a welcoming host and very responsive to the couple messages I sent him. He wasn't at the site when we arrived, which was perfectly fine--everything was easy to find so we made ourselves right at home! He found us a little later in the day to welcome us, check in and make sure we found everything OK. He also gave us a great tip about nearby river access (I think it was the Bogachiel?) where we could let the dogs swim in a gentler part of the river--this was in walking distance from the campsite, just down La Push Road, under the bridge. Our pup had a ton of fun fetching sticks in the water.

Overall, we had a nice stay and Dale was a great host! Would definitely recommend this as a chill place to stay overnight and have a campfire with friends.

And if you're looking for a great breakfast nearby--check out River's Edge Restaurant in La Push. I'm still thinking about that bacon and hash browns.

The location is excellent giving one quick and easy access to must see Olympic National Park beaches and rainforest hikes. The site is enjoyable and has a rustic character that is a good fit for those who have backpacked and camped regularly and don’t need their hand held. The heated bathroom and hot/hot shower, the gas and charcoal grills, and firewood and fire rings make one feel home (and the WiFi helps in case one needs to stay connected). The price is well worth it especially considering of includes a hot shower and firewood!

Shangri La Push is a beautiful property with individual campsites surrounded by trees to make each one feel private. Our site had a picnic table, a fire pit with a grate for grilling, and access to ample free firewood and downed branches for kindling. Our host Dale maintains two on site bathrooms impeccably, a stand alone bath house (hot shower, flush toilet, sink, plenty of toilet paper) and a clean outhouse. There is plenty of parking, trash disposal, kayaks to borrow, and potable water on site in addition to free WiFi. The campground was conveniently located to Rialto Beach, Olympic National Park, other local hikes, and to Forks where we could access food, gas, and restaurants. Dale reached out ahead of our trip to provide the WiFi password, give specific directions, and to make himself available if we needed anything. Our stay at Shangri La Push was beautiful, easy, affordable, and rewarding. We will definitely be back!

Camp hosts were great, the bathroom and shower were great. Hosts were friendly, camp was clean and directions were clear. Had a wonderful morning with the hosts and another camper, the host treated us to pancakes and eggs and coffee, and it was a really nice experience to sit with them and talk shop and politics.
