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

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

This NPS gem of a CG is located right on the Pacific Ocean between MP's 154 and 155. The CG is shaped like a long narrow U running along the ocean. Larger RV's and people with slides should keep right when the CG road splits. This is the upper level and the sites are longer and wider on this level. We had no problem looking over the smaller units on the lower level. Sites on the lower level closer to the ocean are much narrower and have some side to side slope to them. No water or dump station here, but it is available a couple miles up the road at the Kalaloch CG. We spent 4 nights (Thu thru Sun) the weekend after the 4th of July and there were plenty of open sites available every night during our stay. Verizon cell and broadband were mostly good, but calls did drop not and then. No OTA TV reception. A great quiet place to spend a few nights. - Bob and Inga

National park senior discount, but usually 10 dollars per night and 2 dollars for state of Washington (I think). Great place to stop and stay on the ocean. All sites can see and are basically steps to the ocean. Lovely long open beaches and lots of water noise. It is first come and not crowded, but plenty of people this first weekend after labor day (closed that Monday). Easy access and nice camp host. Bathrooms were fine, but basic. Great location to explore Ruby beach and other beach areas. Also, reasonable to the rain forest. Little cell coverage - the sites when you first drive in get only reception. - FrancisandRenee

This is an Olympic National Park campground. Gravel roads, one rest room with flush toilets, no showers, no hookups. It is located on a bluff 50 feet above the ocean with great ocean views and one row of 3 or 4 rows is on the waterfront. Wide beach with large accumulation of driftwood which is OK to gather and burn. Each site has a picnic table and a fire ring. Sites are very close together (on top of each other) and there are no trees or bushes to separate the sites--no one seemed to mind; everyone was busy fishing, walking the beach, flying kites, looking at the ocean, building and tending camp fires, etc. No reservations-hooray-it fills by Friday on summer weekends. A calm, happy place; we would go there again. There is a small store, a very good restaurant with ocean views, and expensive fuel at nearby Kalaloch Lodge. - meanderingman

3 loops, with a 31' trailer our site options were limited. I wouldn't want to bring a big rig or a big 5th wheel in here. Saw several Class C rentals in here. Typical NPS park, no hookups, no close neighbors, wasn't very crowded in late August. Burn ban in effect due to all the fires. From web site-RVs: Sites for 21 feet. - Jim Lee

This is one of several campgrounds in Olympic National Park. Heart O' the Hills is the nearest campground to Port Angeles and provides easy access to Hurricane Ridge. There are no hook-ups here and the closest dump station would most likely be found in Port Angeles or you can use the one at Fairholme Campground (another NPS campground) on the west end of Lake Crescent. There are restrooms with sinks and flush toilets, but no showers. As with many NPS campgrounds, Heart O' the HIlls is best suited to those with smaller rigs. The park's web site says "RV: Sites for 21 feet, a few for 35 feet." The roads are narrow and of course there are lots of trees. There are some pull through sites available but most sites are back-in and many are very un-level. We camped here for two nights in mid-week and had our choice of spots, selecting a nice pull-through near the restrooms. Even mid-week it's a good idea to get here early though to get the best selection because sites are first-come, first-served.
We enjoyed this campground for its beauty, peace and quiet, and good access to Hurricane Ridge and would definitely stay here again. Our rate reflects a 50% discount for having the federal Senior Access Pass. - BruceandKathyWA

There was not much at this park. No (open) restroom, no shower, no internet, nothing. The sites were gravel and sunny and very close together. There was a picnic table. The park was not very clean. - grizmo_1

Great location for exploring Olympic National Park. Close to Safeway for groceries and gas. Expanded cable TV. No restrooms. Utilities in back of site. Do not stay in site #8; it is next to storage shed and we were unable to extend our awning. - bspe

Older small park. Staff is friendly and helpful. Several longer term sites. Good location for seeing the Port Angeles region. We would stay here again if in the area. - S_CAMPY

While there were sites set in among trees, the bulk of the RV sites were close together and out in the open. There was a stellar view of the Olympia Mountains from that siting, however. The number of rest rooms was barely adequate at times and the stalls were quite narrow. The park store was very well stocked and had acceptably convenient hours. Both the swimming pool and spa were in good condition and pleasant to use. There is a robust kid and pet friendly atmosphere, here with dog walks, a playground, tetherball set-up outside, air hockey, ping pong and pool in the club room. There were group cook out facilities and eating areas. The nightly rate was somewhat more than we had paid anywhere else along our route. - Bill Ballou

We love staying at KOAs. They always have nice stores. This one sells Happy Camper wine.
The bathrooms were tile, logs and wood beams, mirrors and silk flowers. Really nice bathrooms!
The sites were a little tired and old, narrow and not so level. No 50AMP at the park. We used an adaptor. The grass is all brown because no rain and we couldn't use a charcoal grill. The view all around of the snowy mountains was really pretty.
Because it's close to the highway, it is noisy in the early morning hours. Don't try to sleep in! - Linda dlm

This is just your typical KOA. The infrastructure was acceptable. All roads are gravel or dirt. Swimming pool and spa were well kept. Mini-golf had been removed. Wi-fi was acceptable. - hoppers4

Just outside of Port Angeles so a quick drive to every thing you would want. No Trains, Planes or Super Highways so very quiet at night. Level sites. No sewer hookups on our site. Staff at the campground were very helpful and nice. Would come here again any time. Wifi also good from the site. - T&M

This park is not in Port Angeles East. It is West of Port Angeles. Just stay on 101 thru the city and take a right on 112 and it is up the road about a half mile on the south side. Access road is Lower Dam Road, and entrance is on the east side. Entrance & most interior roads are paved. Most sites are gravel. Some are dirt. If you have a larger rig you want to have a pull thru on the upper section and if not move on. The lower sections are mostly back ins & are all sorts of angles. Ours was a back in over about 50' of mud and hump. Don't take a pull thru in the lower areas with anything over 26'. Most sites are close to one another. Staff is wonderful. They love to tell you about the area and their African Grey Parrot. They really try to help, but seem new at this. This park is really in the woods. Advertised dam is gone. There is a kiosk with info about its removal, but the walk to the dam site is a hike and will disappoint. Most disturbing in the park is the electrical. We ended up at a 30 amp site; but without any breakers. Seems lots of the newer wiring is via extension cords (really) laid on the ground. Pedestal had no on/off breaker switch. Some areas to walk dogs but no off leash area. Bring extra blocks for leveling the RV. - okdiver

This was a good campground but it was kind of tight and the sites seemed to be added in spurts because they were all over the place and some on angles and others straight in. The roads were mostly paved but were narrow and tight to maneuver.
There was a mix up on our reservation, assigning us to a site that was way smaller than we needed with full hookups. Luckily they had another site but it was only 30 amp and no sewer. They did dump our tanks with a portal unit free of charge though.
The site was all grass, shaded but unlevel. Had to pack in over quite a few hills to get in.
I think we would stay again but would definitly want a better site. - John Borajkiewicz

Sites are fairly tight, all grass and gravel. Most sites are long term. Nothing special about the park. When we were there, all of the grass was 6 to 8" high. Roads are all gravel. The park is cash only, no credit cards. WiFi was decent. - ta96silver

Friendly, easy access, just east of town. A little road noise, but not enough to bother. I would stay here again when in the area. - Tranquilty1

This is supposed to be Passport America but campground does not follow the schedule published in P.A. book or on P.A. web site. Do not accept credit card. Estimate 30 of 35 sites are "permanent" guests with some looking like they have occupied space for years. Park advertises "Club Pavilion w/water & electric". In reality this is campground workshop. Advertise Picnic tables. I saw four. Space between sites is about 8' to 10' max. They do have WiFi. Probably would not stay here again as other parks in area look nicer at same price. - Tireman9

Basically a gravel parking lot with RV hook-up at 17 back-in parking spots. Nice enough but overpriced for what they provide other than location in National Park. - Tireman9
Jul 2014 - $37.00
This park was a big disappointment. We wanted to camp in the National Park, but this was just a big 'parking lot' near the Lodge at Sol Duc. Sites are so close together that you can barely step out of your RV without stepping on cords/hoses of your neighbor. Yes, you could use the pool/hot baths, but it would have cost us (Senior citizens) $18/day. - elfforty

We camped in the motorhome area next to the resort and pools, not the state park further up the road. It was basically a gravel parking lot with hookups, but for what we needed, it was fine. Close to the lodge and pools and that part is nice. You should have a reservation during the peak summer months, but we have gotten in without one before. The hot tubs and pools are great! - jjcold417
