With 170 campsites, Kalaloch Campground is not only Olympic National Park's largest campground, it is the only one that accepts reservations. Sheltered under groves of shore pine and perched on a 40-foot bluff with direct access to Kalaloch Beach on the Pacific Ocean, it is not surprising that the campground is so popular. It's also conveniently located just north of Kalaloch Lodge and Cabins, which offer more "civilized" accommodations for weary travelers. More importantly, the lodge also sells firewood from a general store, and it even has a gas station.

As for the campground, Kalaloch has one large group campsite, a day use picnic area, a large amphitheater with summer educational programs, restrooms, potable water, bear-proof food storage lockers, and an RV dump station. There are no RV hook-ups at any of the campsites, however, and there are no showers.

Note: Kalaloch Campground is open year round, but reservations are only permitted June 18 through September 1, though specific dates may change slightly year to year due to budget limitations. Reservations may be made up to six months in advance.

We went on a busy weekend but were still able to find a decent spot. Everybody was courteous and the big RVs turned off their generators at a good time. We collected driftwood and made a nice fire on the beach right before sunset.
