“Close to Hoh Rainforest with benefits of small campground ”

Reviewed Jul 10, 2018

Overall Rating

8 sites in mossy rainforest. Scored one. Worth a try, short drive thru loop from Hoh rainforest rd. Check tags as 2 sites were empty but tags still up on posts. Vault toilet. No water. Free with $30/Yr. Discover Pass.

We arrived on a Saturday evening and luckily, there was one site available-the handicap accessible space which is open to anyone after 6pm. We spent our first night in that space but didn't unhitch. The next morning we moved to site 1 which was large and easy for our 34 foot fifth wheel. There are 9 sites and our rig could have fit ... more

“Great internet and very pretty”

Reviewed Sep 28, 2017

I agree with all the other reviews. Just want to add that I had no issues streaming netflix, etc using Verizon and/or my ATT Mobley. I rarely stay where this is not possible. Small, quaint, picturesque sort-of free campground! (Have to have the Washington $30 discovery pass.)

“Beautiful Rain Forest Site, Big Rigs Fit”

Reviewed Sep 21, 2017

Overall Rating

My partner and I stayed at Minnie Peterson for ten nights in September. (The posted limit is only seven nights, but there were plenty of open sites and nobody asked us to leave.) My 36' motorhome would have fit in at least 6 out of the 8 sites. My partner's 41' fifth wheel would fit into at least 3 of the sites. Road access is good... more

“Very small Campground right in the dense forest”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2017

Overall Rating

Discovery Pass is required to camp here. This campground is small. Think there was 7 or 8 campsites on the short c shaped campground road. This is a great area to camp and explore the Hoh River area of Glacier National Park. The park is about a 15 minute drive from here. The campground is awesome with massive moss covered pine and m... more

“Rainforest camping for tree huggers”

Reviewed Aug 25, 2016

Overall Rating

This free with Discover Pass DNR campground is a single loop on the road to Hoh Rain Forest. No information about Minnie Peterson but she must have been a darling as is this campground. It's surprising to find a camp this close to a national park and it's empty! They've been making some improvements to the grounds here and it's a work ... more

“It rains, a lot”

Reviewed Oct 15, 2015

Overall Rating

What a great little campground, far from the hustle and bustle but near enough to the Hoh Rain Forest section of Olympic National Park to make it a great place to home base from. Sites are large enough for some good sized trailers, but there are only nine all together. Mind the trees as some overhang the gravel roadway pretty low. Site... more
