Falls Creek Campground lies on the southern shore of Lake Quinault under an Olympic Peninsula the rainforest canopy dominated by western red cedars and bigleaf maples. Adjacent to Lake Quinault Lodge, the campground is one of three along the shoreline that are co-managed by Aramark Parks and Destinations and the Quinault National Forest. The smaller Gatton Creek Campground and the larger Willaby Campground, which is the only year-round campground, round out the roster.

Falls Creek Campground itself offers 15 car/tent sites, 12 walk-in sites, boat ramp access to Lake Quinault, a classic and often necessary picnic shelter and direct access to explore the Quinault National Recreation Trail System.

Note: Falls Creek Campground is open from late May to early September. Call the Pacific Ranger District, Quinault Office at 360.288.2525 or Lake Quinault Lodge at 360.288.2900 for specific dates. Bundled firewood and ice are available for purchase at Lake Quinault Lodge.

We had great weather and it has direct access to trails, the lake with a couple sites on lakeside, many campsites along the creek, but only a few feel private/secluded. It was very busy and loud when we went. Willaby nearby appears to have many more private/secluded sites also with direct trail and lake access and sites along the lake.

Awesome place to camp and explore the rain forest with a dog since dogs are not allowed on trails that go into the Olympic National Park territory. We hiked pretty much every trail in the Quinault National Recreation Trail System with our dog and it was really enjoyable. We were certainly sick of being wet and muddy by the end of our two night stay, but it was a great experience. Both days we were there we experienced both great down pours and beautiful blue skys, it just depended on the hour. Also, reservations ARE possible and can be made through the Quinault Lodge. We would have much rather stayed at the Willaby Campground, but we showed up without reservations since we didn't think that was an option. We were still happy with this campground, but we drove through the Willaby CG and it was certainly nicer with larger, much more private sites.
