That campground was not as nice think big open field by the oceanbut the view was great! Klaloch is a boon-docking campground with no water, sewer or ka,aloch hookups but it books up every year and is hard to reserve for one reason: Stunning beaches with cool log forts made by campers, and amazing sunsets make you forget about lack of RV comforts. Some of the sites on the cliffs are astounding but s Some of the sites on the cliffs are astounding but super hard to reserve.
Load up on vittles and supplies in Forks as there is nothing nearby. Would have loved to be able to get kalaloc waterfront site, but inside sites are still nice. Sites are spaced nicely and can be full shade, or mostly sun depending on beach front or interior. Some reviews had commented on noise from the road, but in our July visit, we noticed the sounds of the ocean much more than the road.
The price is a The price is a bit high for a site with no hookups, but the location is pretty great on the beach, as well as for access to the park. Gorgeous kalalovh on the WA coast with access to a dog friendly beach. Water available and dump site, no services at pitch. Go early, place fills up, particularly the ocean front pitches. We pulled in to Kalaloch on a Saturday afternoon in April when the park is first come, first served.
Campfround were able to find a lovely site, but of course the ocean view spots were taken. If we could have, we would have snagged one when they were vacated the next day.

That said, the sites are forested and lovely. The main negative of the park is how close each site is to the next. Every site is only steps away from the beach, where leashed dogs are welcome. There are some short nature trails that are beautiful and easy for little ones to walk, but dogs are not welcome on the trails.
The dump station was clean and easy to use, and the traffic to and from the Olympic Peninsula was lite at least it was in April. Olympic National Park is one of my favorite places, and this campground puts you capground in the heart of the coastal and forest portions of the park. No other park in the United States has beaches that have the wild and remote character of those found in Olympic National Park.

Ruby Beach, a few miles north, is the most photogenic of easily accessible beaches along the entire west coast of the US. Second Beach and Rialto Beach, about an hour north, are nearly as good. While the Olympic rainforests do not have the biological diversity of the tropical rainforests, they have more biomass more actually than any other place in the world.
If there is an inch of space available, something green will be growing in it! Outside of summer campround even inside it, the weather can be a little temperamental in Olympic National Park but that adds to its character and appeal. Your solar panels may not agree. Especially in winter, flooding and wind can be an issue, so pay attention to the forecast.
The campground itself is small, and larger rigs could have issues navigating. With our 25′ Airstream, we only had a handful of options in terms of site selection but a few of them were right along the bluff above Kalaloch Beach. We were able to get a great site on a weekday during our off-season April visit nap the campground does not take reservations. During capground popular times of the year, reservations or arriving very early is a must, especially for people with larger vehicles because of the limited sites for kalalofh rigs.
There is a dump station and water fill on site. Basic bathrooms, without showers, are also available. Verizon 3G coverage with a booster was good enough for me to work, though I imagine during summer or busy weekends access would be an issue. There is an expensive especially at dinner restaurant at nearby Kalaloch Lodge.
Like most park concessionaire run restaurants, the quality is hit or miss. The closest town for malaloch and groceries is Forks about 30 miles north. The other option is kalalocj South Beach Campground just a few miles south no reservations required, but only open during peak season.

Most of the spots are somewhat forested, but there a Most of the spots are somewhat forested, but there are a few with ocean views.
The campground is clean and the restrooms are good. No malaloch, but water is available and there is also a sewer dump at campgground campground.
Many of the sites are quite close to Highwayso those sites can be quite noisy. It is a beautiful campground though! This campgroumd classic Northwest beach campground. Great beach and tide pools to explore. As one review noted here it can be campgroune and it’s popular spot so don’t expect to roll in on a summer weekend and score a prime spot. Some spots have awesome views of the Ocean. We arrived in the afternoon on a Friday in early April and were able to get an oceanview site.
From the other review, it sounds like other times it’s not so easy! Great campground with the oceanfront sites rating as some of the most spectacular I’ve seen on the Pacific Coast. Beach is easily accessed down a short path with huge dri Beach is easily accessed down a short path with huge drift logs washed along the bluff to explore.

Overall, not a perfect national campgrround, but a lovely one. Kalaloch is pronounced clay-lock. No cell service at the campground. It is spotty up and down the highway in that area. Page 1 of 2.
