With 21 extremely spacious and private year-round campsites, Willaby Campground is the most popular campground on Lake Quinault. Here, under the shade of giant Sitka spruce and thick western red cedars, Willaby Campground is an ideal base camp for exploring the Quinault River Valley. With close proximity to Highway 101, it offers easy access to exploring the entire western side of the Olympic Peninsula. The campground also offers direct access onto Lake Quinault via the boat ramp.

Campsites are reservable at Willaby, and reservations are highly recommended. If all the sites are full, check Falls Creek and Gatton Creek Campground just a few miles east on South Shore Road.

Note: Willaby Campground is the only year-round campground in the Lake Quinault area. Bundled firewood and ice are available for purchase at Lake Quinault Lodge.

Camped here with family (2 adults + 2 kids) Great camp site! We were in #11, which was "multi-level" - steps and a vertical climb to our own section of beach. So, great for youngsters, but might be hard for anyone with trouble climbing. The site was private, quiet, clean. Few bugs in late August. Also, Willaby campers can access Lake Quinault lodge for $20 for 24 hours - pool, showers, lodge activities, etc.
We loved this campground. We came during the off-season so we had our pick of the sites. They are all very secluded and even the sites away from the shore still have beautiful views of the lake.
Didn't stay here, but stopped by to view the sunset. We'll definitely be back.
