Olympic Peninsula Camping throughout the Olympic Peninsula in the Pacific Northwest. Here are the details, descriptions and reservation info for Washington State Parks, US Forest Service Campgrounds, and a couple excellent Clallam County-maintained campgrounds.
This page does not include the 16 campgrounds inside the huge Olympic National Park. Click here for Olympic National Park Campgrounds, most of them located near popular destinations and Park attractions where you're likely to really appreciate a place to chill for the night.
In addition to those campgrounds listed within the Olympic National Park proper, there are many others available around the peninsula. These are owned by the U.S. Forest Service, or by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, or they are privately owned.
A Discover Pass is typically required in order to camp on Washington State lands, whether managed by Washington State, US Forest Service (USFS), or Department of Natural Resources (DNR). For more information and to purchase a Discover Pass online, go to www.discoverpass.wa.gov.
Also, visit the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) website for more detailed camping information.
