Deep in the temperate rainforest of Olympic National Park, Graves Creek Campground is open year-round to serve as the base camp for intrepid explorers heading into the mystic, waterfall-lined Quinault River Valley, better known to outdoor enthusiasts as the "Enchanted Valley."
With 30 campsites, you'll definitely have your pick of sites during the off season. During the peak of summer, however, this remote campground fills up. Before heading out, be sure to pack plenty of water or a purification system, as the campground has no potable water.
It is 2.5 miles one-way from the Enchanted Valley trailhead to Pony Bridge, which makes for a great day hike, and roughly 13 miles to the Enchanted Valley Chalet.
