Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $39.00
$39 per night was for the only premium site (#18) with electric, water, picnic table, and fire ring. There was no extra charge for our tow vehicle—thank goodness! All sites are level gravel. The sites are mostly in shade as the park is in the woods. We used this lovely small campground as our base to visit the western section of Olympic National Park; the seashore at Mora and the rainforest of Hoh—such diversity! It is just outside Forks (we didn’t encounter any vampires during our stay!) where you can find some shopping and a few restaurants. The scenic roadways have awesome vistas and pull-offs to access its hundreds of miles of trails. The only downside to this site was its location near the very busy highway with logging trucks rumbling up and down at all hours of the day and night. Sites on the other side of the campground or along the river have much less road noise. The sites along the river cannot accommodate rigs larger than 25’. AT&T cell service was five bars of 2G. Our Milliencom jetpack was getting two bars of 4G LTE so we used it for internet access. We camped at Bogachiel State Park in a Motorhome.

Nicely located, paved roads, some sites will fit big rigs. We got here and found that the power had dead leg on 50 A and open ground, 30 amp open ground, same results at several other sites. The bathrooms had signs on them from users saying the toilet didn't flush and that there was no hot water in the showers. I looked and the toilets were full of, well you know, and there was no hot water. This appeared to have been going on several days. The word disgusting comes to mind. I tracked down a ranger who looked and sounded surprised about these items and then put up a sign saying the bathrooms were out of service and to pay up. The place is well located, but in its current condition I wouldn't let a dog stay here. If I'm in the area again, I'll check it out to see if they have fixed anything, but if they haven't, I'll just go boondock. We camped at Bogachiel State Park in a Motorhome.

I had to use this campground as the local commercial park had closed for the season when I visited the area in late October. This small (123 acre) park is located between US-101 and the Bogachiel River. Road noise is not too much of a problem as the road grade is well above the elevation of the camping area. After dark, traffic on the highway is minimal. The park is very thickly forested, and even on the sunniest of days, the campsites are very dark. The park’s web site indicates that sites will accommodate rigs up to 40’ in length. I found that only 2 or 3 of the 36 power / water sites were capable of holding my 35’ motorhome. The reasonable price and the park’s convenience to places of interest including Forks, the Hoh Rain Forest and Neah Bay make this a good base for exploring the northwest corner of the state. We camped at Bogachiel State Park in a Motorhome.

This Campground is first come first served and offers 36 standard sites, six sites with power and water, one dump station and two restroom buildings with showers (main campground restroom includes ADA-accessible restrooms/showers). One kitchen shelter without electricity is available to campers. There are 2 loops with the utility sites near the entrance of the park. The other loop offers campsites next to the river. This campground is well maintained and very pretty and lush. Some sites are very private while others are more out in the open. The town of Forks is located 6 miles north and has a great grocery store with an Ace Hardware store next door. There is also a laundramat and car wash along with other local businesses. There are a number of restaurants including Italian, Mexican,Chinese, and a busy burger joint. We found this to be a great campground and would stay here again. I would have given it a 10 if it wasn't so close to the highway. The road noise calms down in the evening and it didn't keep us awake. We camped at Bogachiel State Park in a Motorhome.
