We stayed 2 nights to visit the Olympic National Park. The park is only blocks from US-101 along a secondary street in a residential area but not much noise.
The office is near the entrance but can be missed. The interior roads & parking pads are gravel. The interior roads and turns are sufficient to maneuver larger RV’s. The sites are a mixture of back-ins, P/T’s & tents. Some of the P/T sites were only P/T because no one was in the connecting sites. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. This park understands the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level parking pad as most all of the sites are flat & level so no significant blocking required. The park is along a river that experiences significant tidal changes to the water level. So close enough to the ocean to be in a Tsunami zone.
They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the rear of the sites. The sewer connection fitting was at about ground level so establishing a downhill flow is dependent on the discharge point. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. Sites have an outside table on a concrete patio but only the tents sites had fire pits.
There was a line of trees that could pose interference with satellite reception depending upon site assignment & dish configuration. About 34 channels appeared on the cable line up provided in the park brochure. The park information didn’t mention anything about broadcast channels. Didn’t try to get any broadcast channels.
The park provided WiFi was adequate for checking email & research. No streaming allowed. Didn’t need to use our Verizon WiFi hotspot so don’t know how it well it would worked. No reception for the NET10 phone.
The designated pet area was not fenced. It was a grassy area along the river. There were bag dispensers for waste in the pet area and dumpster available. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park’s roads and a walking path along the river.
We would stay here again as other choices are limited in the area.
