With only five walk-in campsites, Gatton Creek Campground is the smallest campground in the Lake Quinault area. All the campsites are ideally situated on the lake's shore, however, and they make for an idyllic summer overnight resting spot. With an additional designated picnic area, the campground is also a great place for those who want to take a break for the day. 

With such a large parking lot, up to ten RVs are permitted to park and stay overnight. Setting up tables or campfires is not permitted in the parking lot, however.

Note: Gatton 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.
