Camp at Hoh Oxbow Campground

Hoh OxBow Campground - Search Nearby - Added by Gemina Garland-Lewis

Beautiful campground right next to the Hoh River with easy access to Olympic National Park and the rugged Washington coast. 

This small campground is found right off of Highway 101 about a mile and a half south of the turn off to the Hoh Rainforest, on the east side of the highway between mile post 176 and 177. It has eight sites, each of which comes with a picnic table and a fire pit. There's a no-frills outhouse and a nice short walkway to a great viewing spot of the horseshoe bend in the Hoh River. Half of the sites are located by the river and the other half in the forest, all are surrounded by beautiful, dense, and mossy hemlock and fir. You can fish in the river and, in the early summer, the campground is covered in ripe salmonberries. 

Use this as your base camp to explore the surrounding area - it's about a 30 minute drive from the Hoh Rainforest Visitor Center in Olympic National Park and just 15 minutes to Ruby Beach. Since it sits right off of 101, you have easy access to getting around the Olympic Peninsula to explore to your heart's content! 

This is a DNR campground, which means you'll need a Discover Pass from the Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife before you can camp here.

Beautiful spot

Stayed here at the recommendation of an Olympic NP park ranger, who said it was her favorite campground in the area. Great little campground with clean and well-maintained sites next to the river. Was here on cloudy May weekend and had no trouble finding a spot, but unsure about availability during peak of summer.
