Located within easy reach of public transportation via bus or shuttle and not far from the international ferry to Vancouver Island -- this place is close to everything. Olympic National Headquarters is just 2 miles away. Enjoy nearby cafes, gyms, Saturday Farmer's Market, and the harbor is close too. If you enjoy bike riding, the Olympic Discovery Trail is just a few blocks down the road. In the backyard, there is room for your camping tents or you can use the 13' diameter vintage WW2 tent that features cots and chairs. If you need bedding, I can supply this too. Hot showers inside. Enjoy coffee, continental breakfast, and good company.

    Matt was the most gracious, kind, and accommodating host. The tent was decked out with sleeping pads, sleeping bags, blankets, lights, warm and cold water and coffee and tea. He offered up suggestions around town and was a huge help in planning our next day travel adventures. I would recommend this site to anyone in Port Angeles.

    Matt and Kim are very hospitable hosts and experienced backpackers/hikers/campers with extensive knowledge about national forests. As someone newer to camping, this listing was an accessible and safe way for me to test the waters. They do live in a residential area off of a main street, so expect to hear cars at night if you book.
