We were booked into Quilette Ooceanside with a reservation made well in advance. Without letting us know, they moved us to Lonesome Creek Side which is one big parking lot. Management did not offer to move us back and seemed indifferent. No grass, no area for dogs. Lots of Truck campers and tents. Surfers parked in no parking area, blocking our exit, but management did make them move. Dogs running loose, saw at least 5 potty in the area. Thank goodness we were self contained as restrooms were port-a-potties. The wifi was over in a small dingy room in the other campground. We did have oceanfront, so view was good. No cable, could get satellite. Would only stay again if assured in the campground we booked. - User2671

This park is actually combined with the adjoining Lonesome Creek Park. We made a reservation here based on previous reviews but ended up being placed in Lonesome Creek.
No Wifi at sites. AT&T not available. Trees may interfere with satellite tv. Porta potties for washrooms. Good hookups. - seeyajohn

It is hard to rate this campground. For an RV "Resort" it's not really RV friendly. There are no signs for entrances or exits, no directional signs to find your way to your space. In fact no sign at all to find the south part of the park. (The office lady just said "go left around the back of the store.") It doesn't have any of the features usually found in a Resort. No pool, no hot tub, no BBQ area, no social area, no lodge, no dog walk area, no cable, Wi-Fi only in a room adjacent to the office.
The location, however, is spectacular. Many sites front the beach, with views of the surf, rocky islets just off shore, and sunsets.
Coming down to the Park, you first see a store with a sign on the front saying "RV." I pulled in there and was told the RV park office was further down the road. On exiting the store I did see a small sign across the road with an arrow pointing to the office. Turning in at the office there was a sign a little further down the hill saying "RV's pull forward." The only thing given at check-in was a receipt; no directions to site, no park map showing the location of showers, trash cans, etc., no listing of amenities, no rules, etc.
The park has two sections. The sites in the north are mainly gravel pull-thrus with some grass and a fence between each. Some have sewer hook-ups on both sides. Fairly new building with toilets and showers. The part south of the store is more basic. All gravel back-ins. Mine was level. Full hook-ups worked well, looked pretty new. There is no separation from the road. One group of ocean front sites has no outlet; if your space is near the end you have to back down the "road" before backing into your site. Many tent sites are sandwiched in back of the ocean front sites. There are a few toilets and showers back at the store and there are some construction site style portable toilets scattered around.
If I had to rate it: Resort=0, Amenities=0, Customer Service=2, Hook-ups=8, View=10. - Finally Time

There are two RV sections, one north of the Lonesome Creek Store and one south of the store. We were put in the less desirable location south of the store. Site was dirt and whole area was dusty. Would classify facility as marginal, certainly not worthy of of "Resort" as a description. Best part of the area is its location on the water. It had a nice beach and sunsets were beautiful. Will not go again but do believe it was worth a one time visit and it has been added to our "been there, done that" list. - Klicker

This park is a gravel parking lot. The restrooms are clean. Maintenance on the property could be improved. But the RV park has sites facing the ocean, which is excellent. The nice beach is a very short, easy walk from the park. However, if you are searching for a warm beach spot, this is not the place. It is foggy and cool a lot. There is not much in La Push so you must get supplies in Forks. We loved it and will return. - johnanann

Hard to rate. Spectacular location overlooking and only 50 yards from the beach. Water and electric were fine. There is a Wi-Fi room at the office, and that is the only place to get Wi-Fi. Late night fireworks were a drawback to me. I like to sleep, but wouldn't be to someone who likes to stay up past 10:30 watching the fireworks of others. Seems to rain there every day, hardly surprising when you are at the edge of a rain forest. Area beaches are very nice for walking. The "bathrooms" were two porta-potties. We got a key card for the one bath/showerhouse at another park which is separated from this one by the resort, and is very busy. - 23cal

This is a very nice Park Service campground. In this case, small sites nicely spread out in a beautiful old-growth forest, with no utilities at the sites. Most spots are suitable for tents, campers, and tiny trailers. Paved narrow, twisty roads and few sites for large trailers. Very quiet and close to Rialto Beach, one of the best wilderness beaches in the 48 states. Surprisingly good cell service. Fill your water tank at the dump station on your way in. - Doug Atterbury

Great campground among the trees, very large trees. Site was a little tight for a 34' motorhome, but manageable. You would have to be lucky to find one for a large rig and may take some time getting it in place. The place was a ghost town this late in the year and it was fantastic. Only one loop open so the closed loops made a great walking trail. Rialto Beach is nearby and was worth seeing as it was a sunny morning after a large storm with high surf crashing on the beach. I would recommend this campground. - InVogue

National Park Service, located near end of road. Shady campground next to river and close to ocean. We especially enjoyed hikes on the beach and the northwest coast scenery. Typical of NPS, some parking spaces are tight. - aurora

One of the nicest private "RV" lots we've stayed in across the U.S. A newer park, you can tell by the amount of detail that the owners are adding yearly to make this park an inviting place to stay. We had a wide back-in space that backed into a nice line of trees. Great on hand owners. All gravel interior with some grass on the perimeter. A lot of fisherman use the park and the office is stocked with fishing supplies. I believe the owner might be a fishing guide. We stayed two nites until we could find a spot directly on the ocean. - smitty12

Excellent park. Very nicely landscaped and maintained. New, clean, modern restrooms and laundry room. When there are vacancies, you are spread you out so you have more room. Utilities work well, wifi was very good most of the time, poor some times. Sites are spacious, esp. the premium sites. Sites are quite level. Our site must have been a good 70 feet or more, plenty of room to park the toad. Owners onsite and very helpful, it is obvious they truly care about the state of the park. Even more improvements under way, including plans to complete propane sales. Conveniently located for the beaches at La Push and Forks, about 8-9 miles from town. Very quiet and restful. An impressive park. - SW Rick

Camped here for two weeks while we participated in a Habitat for Humanity build in Forks, WA. The owners are great! Very accommodating. Hook ups and space were fine. Not many campers here this time of year. Was able to throw a ball for our dog on the grassy area behind our rig. No bathrooms and no laundry (reason for the 8 rating). However, a new laundry facilitly was nearing completion and is probably up and running by now. Definitely would recommend this RV park, if staying in the area. - RLBD

The sites are narrow and difficult to navigate. If you have a big rig, you must pick a site near the front since the back is impossible. This place was dirty from pine needles, damp and densely shaded. The park is minimally serviced by the gas station. The showers were nasty and cost lots of money. The laundry facilities were broken half of the time we were there. What it lacked in cleanliness it made up in location. It's close to both La Push and the Hoh Rain Forest. It is also featured in the Twilight series as the treaty line. - Keystone Trail

PROS: Low price for a 28ft motorhome. Gas and food available at high prices. Fast Wifi.
CONS: Extremely noisey and cramped. Our RV site is 8 feet from a loud refrigeration compressor. Our canopy would hit the neighbor's slide-out if fully deployed. No room for fire ring or picnic table. Not in Forks per the address, but rather 8 miles west. Pay shower. The above was not disclosed to me prior to booking. I feel like I've been hoodwinked. - tdrager

We called ahead for a full hook up site for 40' RV. Upon arrival were shown a parking space up by the crowded office, next to bathroom. Our power pole was almost under the awning of the small trailer in the other of 2 full hook up sites in this park. No space for 40' & 4 slides plus a toad. We left. The park is very busy, looked nice for smaller rigs. Lots of trees, lots of people at the store/office. Nice location on road to LaPush. - Proud Mary

The pull through sites are long and far apart. The main paved road is shared by the mobile homes that are across the street. Just my opinion, but I think both were owned by the same person until recently when the RV part was sold off. Since the RV park is not full much of the year, as a result the kids from the across the street are used to using the grassy 'field' as a playground even when it is occupied. A call to the office corrected the problem right away with a call to the manager of the mobile home park. We were in site 50 and sites 52 and 48 are also across from a lot of kids so I would suggest asking for a site closer to the road to avoid having basketballs bouncing into your car or rig or kids riding their bicycles through your yard.
There is a sportsman club just one block to the south so there was some gunfire noise during the day but not bothersome to us. The road noise was minimal since we were so far from the road. The back in sites that are gravel nearer the front are closer together and might have a noise problem.
We did not disconnect because we pull a trailer. We took our motorcycle out and there are some very good 'rides' in Olympic National Park. - clarksark

This is one of those half trailer park, half campground deals. The RV sites in the front are on gravel, back-ins, and very close together. The pull-through sites in the back are large, grassy, and spaced nicely. There are permanent / long term RVs that have seen better days. One gave me the creeps as it was about 17 feet long, had the utilities run through the window, blue tarp on the roof, all shades pulled, no car ever there yet someone inside... probably just me.
The WiFi signal was good, but we never got it to work. I really hate that. - daa10496

We've been coming to this park since before Forks was known as the "Twilight" town. It finally has new owners but they are not local and the park is well run by managers. All the sites are FHU with gravel pads that appear level. We have always stayed in one of the 10 sites right across from the office. They are fairly level, gravel, back in sites. The park (and, according to the manager, the town) does not have cable service. It appears all 10 sites across from the office are satellite friendly. There are another half dozen back in sites just down the park road from the office beyond the building containing the laundry, bathrooms, showers. These sites are may not be satellite friendly. All the back in sites are very close together and tight. The remaining dozen or so RV sites are pull through sites farther down the park road. These site are long and wide. At the end of this pull through loop thorough sites is a tenting area. This stop is the first time I have seen those sites used. The WIFI worked great for our minimal (e-mail and surfing) needs. The two bathrooms (a sink and 2 stalls) and 2 separate pay showers are old and stark, but clean. Even without the tent sites, these facilities are inadequate for this park. The laundry had 3 of each machine for $1.75 per machine. I saw no sign of recycling in the park. There is nothing recreational in the park. There is a large grocery/sporting goods/hardware store across the road that can come in handy. The center of town is only a 15-20 minute walk down U.S. 101 with several local eateries along that stretch of road. - Jerry S

$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. - DD Rolling Ranch

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. - pumper9x9

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. - GreenMtn08

This time of year the Park Service tends to close the Hoh CG due to the Elk rutting season. So if you're looking to spend some time in the Hoh Rain Forest and don't want to spend a lot of time commuting from camping 15-20 miles away this place is perfect. First off, it's kind of small, only has 30 amp power, water, and no sewer or dump station. They have a small store/cafe with some reasonable prices for meals but they have some very relaxed hours. We had 3G internet access through Verizon MiFi. They have no cable or WiFi available. The site was level and reasonably well drained and open so I think satellite TV would work OK. They do have several sites that need to have the trees trimmed back and maybe have some more gravel put down. There was no problem maneuvering around or parking our rigs, and a 45' coach would fit with no problem. If you absolutely need to dump your tanks the dump station in the park was still open even with the campground being closed. - pumper9x9

This park is all about location. It's close to the Hoh entrance to Olympic NP, but you have to drive a fairly narrow steep road to get there. Roads and sites were muddy even though it was dry season. Sewer connections had clearly overflowed and were no longer available. Restrooms seemed clean but were soaking wet and unappealing. There's no place to buy even simple groceries. We stayed till there were sites available in the national park and were very happy to move on to no services but a much nicer ambiance. - ghopgd

So, here’s the skinny. We stayed here for four days in Aug. We had made reservations for a full hookup site, but upon arrival was told there were none available due to septic tank issues. We were informed that we could however use their shower and toilet facility. We had dumped that day so not have a sewer hookup was not an issue. We were told to take any available site and settled on site 13. One of only two in a small back area. It was peaceful, quiet and very close to the Hoh Rain Forest which was why we were there. Most of the sites were right behind the store and closer to the road, which is dead when the park is closed. Later during our stay the owner told us they had just made a considerable investment in the shower and toilet facility, however that had over stressed the septic system and that they would no longer be offering full hookups. We spoke for quite a while and it is clear they are trying to make a go of a difficult situation. I told them they should update their website to reflect the lack of full hookups as well as correct the price, which was $25.00/night water and electric. Bottom line. We liked the place for its location and secluded location. They also had a large field behind the shower were the dogs could play Frisbee. We will be back, I just will know what to expect. As a side note. My Verizon smart phone worked great. The AT&T iPad was pretty useless. - RVCorgi

Loved the beach here. Our site was small, but it was a good one night stay. Highly recommend getting a spot right on the overlook, as the views are great!
The spots were nicely spaced apart. Our spot was a little odd, we were next to the ocean, but there were huge bushes so we couldn't see it. That was fine though as we had a ton of privacy. There was a picnic table, but it was very rainy that day, so everything was very muddy. Nothing wrong with that, though. Still a beautiful spot. I wish we could have stayed longer. - Michelle Schroeder

Rate reflects Senior discount. Rated a 7 because we were right at the beach (100') otherwise its just a spot to spend the night. Glad we were not on row closest to beach as quite windy with cold wind off ocean. We were few row back in the trees so almost no wind. This is standard Nat park campground w/no hook-up. Restrooms were clean except for trash and shells some kids brought into the woman's restroom. Kids made a mess. There were a few Class-A RVs but most were tents & small pop-ups. We would stay again. - Tireman9

What a gorgeous location this is! Miles of beach, nature trail, sunsets....all steps from your campsite. The park is older, heavily treed. Beach-facing sites are more open/sunny and several have direct water views. Sites are well-spaced, but small and uneven. We camped here in a 40-foot MH, which was not easy, but do-able if you are careful and book well ahead to snag one of only 9 sites rated over 40-foot in length. However be prepared to brush trees and do some back/forth to get into your site. In general this campground is much better-suited for smaller rigs. Interestingly enough we got 2 bars of 4G LTE on our Verizon MiFi and also had good reception on our Straight Talk (Verizon-based) phone so look like towers have been upgraded in this area. Loved this area. Would definitely come back! - nina_70
