Olympic National Park Camping: Details on the 14 campgrounds (and a couple day-use-only areas) in the Olympic National Park, and links to additional status, access, and updates on campground and road conditions.
Whether you're looking for crashing waves on sandy beaches, the quiet enclosure of a dense forest, or 360 degree mountain top vistas, the Olympic National Park has a campground for you.
Listed below you'll find the Olympic National Park's 14 campgrounds, presented by regions.
Usage fees range from $10 - $12 per day.
All campgrounds are first-come-first-served, except the Sol Duc and Kalaloch Campgrounds, for which reservations may be made for dates in June - September (but not more than 6 months in advance).
Additional links to road conditions, and campground status can be found below.

Forested along Elwha River
Summer Day Use and Picnicking only - Altair Campground is now listed as permanently closed. Recent removals of the Glines and Elwha Dams have left a wide flat valley floor and an unstable course for the Elwha River. It is unknown whether camping will once again reopen once the Elwha carves out a more permanent river channel through the available space.
Deer Park - Southeast of Port Angeles, WA
Nearest city: Port Angeles: 22 miles (35.4 km), approx. 46 minutes away
Nearest city: Port Angeles: 12 miles (19.3 km), approx. 24 minutes away
The Elwha Campground is listed as permanently closed due to the changing course of the Elwha River and ensuing flood damage. (I suspect that once the Elwha River settles down into a steady course, the Park will find a way to reopen both the road into the Elwha Valley and the campground.)
