Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

The Lyre River Campground is located just off of the scenic Strait of Juan de Fuca Highway on the Lyre River. This quiet, little known campground is just the ticket for anyone looking for a less traffic on their visit to the Olympic Peninsula, or for those who simply can't find another campsite. This campground is run by Washington's Department of Natural Resources, and it is fairly straightforward in terms of amenities: picnic tables and fire pits are at each site, and there is a vault toilet and a picnic shelter. There is no potable water here, nor are there any hookups, and all 11 sites are first-come, first-served. The sites are very well spaced, and the lush foliage that separates the sites helps to provide a sense of privacy in this small campground.

The beautiful Lyre River is a prominent plus for this campground, and there is a fishing platform to facilitate your search for steelhead in season. If you have the time, take a stroll on nearby Murdock Beach to look for agates among the rounded rocks (just make sure the tide is low), relax at Crescent Beach, or explore the bountiful tide pools at Tongue Point.

Note: Open year-round with self registration and payment is only required June 15th through October 15th.
