Just got back from Salt Creek County Park on the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

This is a county park that sits on a spit of land, with Crescent Bay on the South and the Strait on the north. Lots of beach, tidepools and wildlife. Olympic National Park is 20 minutes away by back roads.

Great campsites, great views. Bonus, unlike the NPS and Forest Service campgrounds, there are hot showers. Double bonus, there is a dump station and the fee is free if you are camping there.

That looks really nice, and not far from home. (Washington home, anyway.)

We had the great fortune to stumble across this campground on our trips West. It is so nice that it makes me want to drive four solid days to get back there....

Salt Creek is a well kept secret. There are two great campgrounds on the Olympic Peninsula, Salt Creek and the NPS campground at Kalaloch on the Pacific Ocean. Everything else is an also ran IMHO.

For those of you from outside the State of Washington, Salt Creek sits just outside the Northern edge of Olympic National Park. A 20 minute drive on a county road will take you to the north side of Lake Crescent. The Elwa River with numerous trails and the Olympic Hot Springs is not much further. The Humes Ranch and the Elwa River Valley is an easy day hike as are the hot springs.
