WHAT MAKES IT REAL?

LOCATION...

Washington State camping - Kalaloch Campground


Camping in Washington state, along the beautiful remote wilderness of the north Washington coastline, 73 miles of which is protected by being in the Olympic National Park, is very "real" camping experience.

This beautiful Washington camping ground is right on the beach!

Kalaloch (“a good place to land” in the Quinault language) is a really wild beach, with lots of drift wood washed up on the shore. We even saw an otter frolicking in the surf.

Some of the campsites back directly onto the beach (well, it’s a small cliff, with the beach below). Other campsites are in the wind-battered woods.

PRICE:

$14 (2 vehicles and 8 people) (50% off with a Golden Age/Golden Access seniors card)

170 campsites (this sounds like a massive place, but they are separated into different loops and so it seems a lot smaller)
