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

Made the reservation over the phone, Spent 2 nights. Beautiful lake view as you drive in. Campsites very close together. When I backed in, my door opened onto the tent in the site next door. My table was on the other side of the RV. The tent campers were horrified I might stay and I have just a little rig. They did accommodate my request to move and I noticed they did not have any other takers on the spot while I was there. I was not very impressed. Food in the deli expensive and not that good. I was quite impressed when my server started up the vacuum cleaner right after she delivered my meal. No, I will not be going back there. - WA Morning Girl

Lake Crescent is stunningly beautiful and so it's worth the time to stay right on its shore when visiting. This resort was a little shabby, but nice enough to recommend because of the lake. I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out how to make reservations from their web site (it only seems to want you to reserve a room), but I knew we were off-season so I just went by when we got there and took my chances. The clerk seemed confused that I didn't have a reservation, but eventually worked it out, and then was somewhat restrictive about what sites she would put me in. That all took on a new complexion later in the afternoon, and seemed a bit silly, when we realized that we were literally the only RV guests in the entire place. Still, that's just an oddity and not really a problem. The site we did get had a view of the lake and it really was beautiful. There is a restaurant there, that we didn't use but that looked nice, and you can rent boats, kayaks or canoes to paddle on the lake (you should--it is the clearest lake you will ever see). While sitting at the edge of the lake, an otter swam up and munched on a crawfish right in front of us, so that was a real treat. The sites are your typical parking lot with about a foot of grass between each. The utilities all worked fine. It was lovely with no one else there, but will probably feel pretty crowded once full. All in all, if you can figure out how to make a reservation (which I'm sure you'll need once the season starts), this is well worth the visit. - User3072

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

Typical KOA so the sites are narrow. We had a pull-through site at the end of the row and the site was very wide. Our "deluxe" site was only 30 amp and had no sewer. At the end of our stay, we could not maneuver our 40 footer to the dump station easily so we pulled into an empty site to dump. Honey wagon service would have been $20. This is a convenient location for both Port Angeles and Sequim. - RVerMJ

First off, you need to know that there are two campgrounds that go by the same name. This review is for the Olympic National Park campground called "Sol Duc Campground". The other campground which is also sometimes called "Sol Duc Campground" is actually owned and operated by the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort and it is, as the previous reviewer writes, basically just a gravel parking lot with hook-ups. The NPS campground is an entirely different facility!
The NPS campground lies along the Sol Duc River in lush old growth rain forest. There are two loops with a total of 82 sites. The roads through the campground are very narrow with tight curves. Although there are some nice large pull-through sites, this campground will appeal mostly to those with smaller rigs, camper vans, truck campers, or tents.
Come prepared for rain! - BruceandKathyWA

RV sites unlevel. Last day no water. Permanent residents questionable. Golf course a joke. Worried about our safety. - larpen175

This park is difficult to rate. Many spots are full-timers who live in really run down travel trailers, and a couple have junk piled around them. There are several park model-type homes as well, some new, some old. There are also several full-timers who take very good care of their space by mowing their lawns and planting flowers and vegetables. The camp host works day and night. He and his wife are very friendly and offered to take us into town with them when they went grocery shopping since we didn't have a tow vehicle. There's only one washer and dryer, but the room is kept tidy. Our spacious spot was on grass and not level at all made worse when someone drove through it while the ground was wet and left deep ruts. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. The electric must have been updated as there was a nest of wires covered with a bucket next to the circuit breaker. This park has a very casual policy regarding dogs being off leash and not being picked up after, but most people lived by the rules. Most of the residents were very friendly, but there were a few that had some heavy traffic in and out which could be suspect. Also, being near the highway could be noisy at times. There were several large mature trees, but not at our site. There is a large, beautiful grassy area for the tent campers separate from the RV area. There's also a 9-hole golf course behind the RV park that's decent and golf carts and clubs are available. Everyone obeyed the 5 mile-an-hour rule up and down the rock and dirt road so no dust was really ever kick up. We would come back if we were on a tight budget or no other parks in the area were available. GPS and signage got us right to the park. - J rys

We were so thrilled to have found this park. Although a bit out of town (15-20 min), it turned out to be a perfect location for us to cruise around the area from. There are several full timers which you see when you first enter the park which I was skeptical about when we arrived, but when we pulled around to the pull through lots, it is perfect. RV park hosts great. They are so welcoming and friendly. We are pulling a trailer behind our motorhome and we were assisted with his truck to park it next to us. While we were there, we went to Victoria Island on the ferry for three days and felt very comfortable with leaving everything behind. Although we thought we would only stay a few days, we stayed ten days. Beautiful golf course here too and only $10 to play all day. Very accommodating for all our needs. Laundry room only has one washer and one dryer and is a bit dated, but only $1.00 per load and things came out clean. Our lot had a fire pit and picnic table too...and Wi-Fi is included. The weekly rate breaks down to $20 per day. Lots of tents sites available, too. This is a gem and not to be confused with the recreation park across the street. We looked there...too many people packed in. - Ollie49

We read the earlier reviews, and in spite of some negative comments, decided to stay because of the proximity to the National Park and Forest; and are happy we stayed here.
We had a back-in site, with adequate WiFi connection; the laundry had two tables for folding clothes.
Although their was noticeable noise from 101, it was not so loud as to disrupt our activities (including sleeping)!!
Note: the general store and campground is still for sale!! - 2007Seabreeze

Ok RV park, the sites are kind of short. Our 36' motorhome just fit, I don't think anything longer would fit here. Wifi is terrible, but that seems to be the case in most RV parks. No cable and satellite is sketchy, we got it but the friends we were traveling with did not. - karenwerf

Sites are terraced on a forest hillside. The sites are quite short and narrow with very little parking space for a car. Full hookup sites, but only 30 amp available. WiFi is weak and trees blocked satellite reception. Good Verizon cell and MiFi reception. There is daytime road noise, but it is much quieter at night. Only two washers and two dryers in the laundry and no folding table. - Dave51

RV sites are very close together. The sites facing the Straits of Juan de Fuca are on three tiers. The lower tier (first come, first serve) have the best view, the middle tier view is blocked by the lower tier, and the upper tier has a good view. There's plenty of places to walk around the park. They also have a very nice playground with modern equipment for the kids. Our Verizon router was spotty but we did end up with a fair internet connection. Our AT&T cell phones had no service. Our fire ring was underneath the corner of our rig so was unusable. We barely had room for our 32' MH and toad but we made it fit. - hoppers4

We've stayed at Salt Creek numerous times. What we love most about it are the beautiful views across the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the easy access to the interesting beach and tide pools. What we like least is how close you are to your neighbors!
There are two sections to this campground. Sites #1 to #51 are up on a high exposed bluff. Of those sites, #33 to #39 are pull-through, while #1 to #32 are back-in. Sites #6 to #32 are arranged on terraces so that theoretically every site will have a view. Be aware though that depending on what kind of rig you have you may end up without a view. For example, we stayed in site #17 which put the large front windows of our trailer facing the view (albeit over the top of our truck). If we had taken one of the sites in the upper terrace (#25 to #32) the back of our trailer with its tiny window would have been facing the view. This is because of the direction of the traffic flow. So if in doubt, when making a reservation, ask! We camped during a very stormy few days and so the campground was not crowded and we were able to pick a spot that worked well for us without a reservation.
There is another section of the campground that is down closer to the water where sites #52 to #92 are located. These sites are nestled in the woods and some have views, but many do not. They're pretty, but can be dark on rainy or cloudy days and they're not suitable for large rigs. There are no hook-ups in the lower loop. - BruceandKathyWA

We love this park! Made reservations for 3 nights, stayed 7 and are already planning our return. Extremely clean grounds, nice/helpful Rangers on staff. We turned off phones and electronics to ensure we didn't pick up a Canadian tower and instead, we went tide pooling, hiking, explored and enjoyed the incredible area. We camped in a 35' motor home plus toad and there were larger rigs than we are. Neighbor is relatively nearby but because the way the park is tiered, we did not feel cramped and our forward view was spacious and spectacular. Busy on the weekend but quiet at night. Highly recommend, We would rank Salt Creek in our top 3 most favorite campgrounds in the US! - User2954

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

Yes, the hosts are very vigilant about patrolling the beach, but they also pick up trash while they're there, and they're all very friendly. The roads in and out are gravel, but they are watered to keep dust down. Our site was on grass, was semi-level, and was very deep, but narrow. We had a large motor home next to us for the first night and they were very close and noisy. The only trees were behind us. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and Victoria Island from inside our RV. There are lots of shells and tide pools to discover on the beach. High tide can take up the entire beach, so look at the tide schedule in the office. We had a spot near the office, so Wi-Fi worked perfectly, but we turned our phones off due to constant roaming and to avoid international charges from a Canadian tower. I was disappointed that no cable was available at these rates. We were also charged $8 per night for our little Chihuahua, which I thought was excessive and not very pet friendly. Our site was next to the small graveyard, but it didn't bother me. I did pick up lots of burrs or goat heads in the soles of my shoes walking in and around the park, and the sand fleas on the beach are numerous, but they don't bite, they're just annoying. We saw a pair of Bald Eagles nearly every day. There were no 30 amp spots available, so we paid for a 50 amp spot. Fortunately, my sister had purchased an adapter from the last campground when we ran into the same problem. The laundry room was spacious and clean but only had 2 washers and 3 dryers. We didn't have any issues with the sewer system. There's a blacktop patio about 6'x3' near the picnic table and fire ring. If you want a spot on the water, you will pay for it. - J rys

We thought that this park was one of the worst we have ever visited because it is so over priced. This dumpy, shabby place was not worth the $53.99 for only one night. The Wi-Fi only works near the office. They wouldn't let me bring my computer into the office, but suggested I use a nearby picnic table outdoors in the drizzle and cold! The sites are in deplorable condition: weedy, half dead grass, a "patio" smaller than the picnic table, ugly laundry room and rest rooms. It would have been okay for about $20-$30 but $53.99 is ridiculous. The staff was very busy patrolling with binoculars and walkies-talkies to make sure that no one was trespassing on to the property. Anyone who sets foot on their precious private beach must pay $6 and they were far more focused on that than on the paying guests already there. We would absolutely NOT recommend this park to anyone. - DMarilynB

It is a little more than parking lot for RVs. Just dead grass, a table, and a fire pit. The RV are very close together. There are no play area for for children, pets on leach at all times. All visitors have to pay $6 to just enter the camp. We had friends who stopped by to say hello for a few minutes in our RV, they had to pay just to drop by. The staff was incredibly uncaring, and rude to them. I would not recommend this RV camp to anyone. - gastonmom
