“Nice DNR site just north of Forks, Washington”

Reviewed Oct 20, 2018

Overall Rating

Nice campground along the 101 in Washington State. Within 20 minutes of Forks, Washington of Twilight fame that has a nice local grocery store. We used this as a place to drop our trailer as we explored the National Park Rainforest, Riola Beach near La Push, and Cape Flattery. The location of the campground worked well for this, and... more

“Great sized campsites. Easy access to Hoh Rain Forest”

Reviewed Aug 03, 2018

Overall Rating

There are nine sites at the DNR campground. It requires the WA state Discover Pass to camp here. $30.00 for the annual pass or $35.00 if bought online. These are very large and mostly easy access sites for both tents and rvs. There are several sites that would handled a larger rv, ours is a 35' fifth wheel. Site one has the best... more

“Good Short term site”

Reviewed Jul 31, 2018

Overall Rating

I agree with what others say, this is a nice place to camp. And would stay here again. But if you rely on solar power you will come up short, at least in site 2. A couple of sites get a bit more Sun, but not much. Still a nice place!

“Don't miss this gem!”

Reviewed Jun 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed here 2 nights in #8. Lovely surroundings and the sites set up offered decent privacy. The vault toilet was clean and there was TP. The camp registration board states 7 day stay limit not 10 like in the info in the description here. Very little road noise. I have stayed in numerous locations on the OP and this one is a favorite.... more

“Lush rainforest campground in great location, Discovery Pass Required”

Reviewed Sep 22, 2017

Overall Rating

Bear Creek campground was really nice. Its a small loop campground with around 15 sites. Its located in a pretty good area to use as a base camp to explore the area. This is another camp where the Discovery Pass is required, but once again no one came by to check. Access couldn't be easier. It is right off hwy 101. Some of the spots... more

“Less than ideal convenience camping”

Reviewed Aug 24, 2016

Overall Rating

This historic old campground was once the work camp for the railroads, road builders, and logging industry. It's conveniently situated right along the highway adjacent to Bear Creek. This is a free DNR campground requiring a Discovery Pass. It's a single loop of smaller sites with decent spacing and fairly level but lumpy. There are tw... more
