Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

For those exploring the interpretive trails around the Hoh Rainforest Visitor Center or those venturing out on the 18-mile approach to the base of Mount Olympus, Hoh Campground is certainly the most popular base camp.

Located right on the banks of the glacially fed Hoh River, the year-round campground features 88 tent/car sites (each with a picnic table and a fire grate), restrooms, potable water, and bear-proof food storage boxes. Although none of the sites have RV hook-ups, the campground does have a dump station. The campground's amphitheater is also home to ranger-lead educational programs in the summer.

Note: Pets are allowed in the campground on-leash, but they are not allowed on trails or in any other undeveloped areas (as is the case in most National Parks).

Forest Trees + Moss

With roughly 144 inches of rain annually, the temperate rainforest of the Olympic Peninsula is home to some of the largest trees found on our planet and the most diverse and abundant collections of moss anywhere. Click on the following links to learn more about many of these trees and moss.
