Olympic Adventure Campground

46 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents18 acres · Forks, WA
Olympic Adventure Campground is available to Both RV's & Tent Dry Camping. The Camp Address is: 192602 US-101, Forks, WA 98331, USA. Our Camp is situated on a little more than 5 acres out of our 18 acres of Dense Enormous Evergreen Forest in the Olympic temperate rain forest region. It is next to the road on Highway 101 but still offers our guests the wilderness experience and semi-privacy with tall trees surrounding the camp. We recommend that our guests use GPS to find Forks, WA, First. Once you find Forks, you will be able to find our camp. Helpful Hints: If you are traveling from the South side of town: We are only about Half a Mile from the Northbound Edge of town on the Right. If you are traveling from the North side: Watch for milepost number 193. This means you are very close. Our camp will be on the left. Our Sites were planned out and spaced to offer our guests plenty of "Elbow Room". Whether your travel plans are for pitching a Tent or parking an RV, we can help you with that. Each site has its own Details and Pricing for Booking your Reservations. Please check-in at the main office building when it is open: Daily between the hours of 7am - 7pm. After business hours guests may call or send a text message up to 9pm to check-in. If a guest decides that they are dissatisfied with their original choice of camping space, they can make a request to change it (depending on availability) but there will be a fee applied for changing to a different camp space. Otherwise let us know how we may help you during your stay. We very kindly ask our guests to be patient and adaptable if ever they encounter a booking issue at our camp. Surprisingly it does happen sometimes with the online booking websites. We experienced this problem over our busiest summer season in 2023. So this is why it can be stressful on both our guests and our hosts. We simply ask our guests to have some mercy on us as we work very hard to accommodate you even if something goes wrong. However, if someone out there is not willing to consider and accept a change in their booking site as a result of a rare but possible booking issue, then they may need to look elsewhere to camp. Regarding Electric Vehicles: The Fee for Charging an Electric Vehicle Overnight is a Flat Rate of $7.00. Please send us a message or call ahead if you are planning to bring one to our camp. The fee would be handled at our office. Here at Olympic Adventure Campground we work hard to ensure that our guests are content with their camp space and the surroundings. Most of our guests expect to have a quiet, peaceful stay. With this in mind, we have a strict rule in place: Our camp Speed Limit is 5 mph. No Excessively Loud & Fast Operation of Vehicles are allowed to cruise on our camp roads. Some examples are: ATV (Example: Polaris), Dirt Racing Motorcycles, Race Cars. RV Waste Water Holding Tanks: We Kindly Ask our Guests the Following: Please arrive at our camp with an empty waste water holding tank. There are a few dumping options available here, just ask us more about it. There is another place called Bogachiel State Park that has a dump station available for RV's at the flat rate of $5.00. It is located about 5 miles south of Forks, WA. There are also some rest areas along the I-5 freeway that have free dump stations. Please be mindful to not burden our septic system by arriving here with a full tank of waste water that was accumulated elsewhere. We recommend that our guests bring along a raincoat and a warm layer of clothing because rain showers and temperature changes are random and it can happen in any season. Some popular activities in this region include; hiking, fishing, kayaking, rafting trips. Lake Pleasant, as its name implies, located only 8 miles North of Forks is a lovely spot for swimming, boating. Please read the details of our camp listing as appropriate for your travel plans and for more information on our camp amenities and rules. Thank You.

The best camping near Olympic National Park guide

Overview

About

Spread out over close to a million acres on Washington's Olympic Peninsula, Olympic National Park is home to a wide diversity of natural features, from Pacific Ocean beaches to ancient forests. Mountaineers know the park for glaciated Mount Olympus, while hot springs fans can soak in the healing waters at Sol Duc Hot Springs. The most celebrated highlight is arguably the temperate Hoh Rainforest, known for its ancient groves of old-growth trees strewn with emeraldine moss. Plenty of great camping options exist in and around the area for those who want to spend the night, but sites fill up quickly in warmer months.

Olympic National Park RV Camping

Washington's Olympic National Park is a joy to visit by RV. You can easily explore different sections of the Olympic Peninsula and its 329-mile loop road, and an RV’s shelter means you’re always prepared for precipitation at the park’s famous rainforests. On the park’s coastal section, Kalaloch Campground’s RV sites feature picnic tables, fire rings, restrooms, and a dump station. Hoh Campground, although it has no RV hookups, is a solid spot along the Hoh River to immerse yourself in a classic Olympic Peninsula rainforest with thick moss, ferns, and old-growth trees. Further north, the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort Campground has RV sites with water and electric hookups, plus proximity to the resort’s soothing geothermal pools. For day-use access, find a basecamp at a private RV site or RV park with full hookups in the areas surrounding the park, such as Forks or Port Angeles.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for beachfront camping: Kalaloch Campground offers direct beach access and front-row seats to ocean sunsets.
  • Best for rest and relaxation: Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort Campground features tent and RV camping right by a thermal hot spring.
  • Best for nature lovers: Set up camp amid ancient trees at Hoh Campground, which offers easy access to the famous Hall of Mosses trail.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Campsites can be booked up to six months in advance on the National Park Service (NPS) website. Reservations open at 7am Pacific.
  2. The park is very popular, especially in summer, so it’s wise to wake up early to secure your spot right when reservations go live.
  3. The park’s Log Cabin RV & Campground has its own reservation system.
  4. Kalaloch, Hoh, and Mora are the only reservable, NPS-run campgrounds, bookable in summer.
  5. All campgrounds (including Kalaloch, Hoh, and Mora) operate on a first-come, first-served basis outside of the reservable summer season.

When to go

The best time to visit Olympic National Park is in summer, when the weather is warm and the chance of heavy rainfall is slim. This is also the busiest time, so if you're planning to reserve a campsite, make sure to do it well in advance. To beat the crowds, late spring and early fall are good alternatives; just come prepared for rainfall and cold weather.

Know before you go

  • You can pick up camping supplies and gas in Forks, about a 40-minute drive from the Hoh Rainforest Visitor Center.
  • If your campground doesn’t sell firewood, then you’re permitted to collect dead wood for fires within 100 feet of your site, provided all pieces are under six inches in diameter.
  • It's wise to download offline maps before you head out, as parts of the park and surrounding areas do not get good cell phone coverage.
  • Make sure to check in advance for wildfire alerts and snowstorm- or landslide-related closures.
