“Incredible camping experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2010

I would recommend this campground to any campers who can get up the rugged road to it! The road is very narrow and step, but my girlfriend's little hyndai accent was able to make it up and back down safely.

The views at the top were incredible, especially at night and early morning. Plus this puts you very near the top of a mountain. You can hike the rest of the way or even drive to within 1 mile of the top, great for those who can't hike long distances.

And it's called Deer Park for a reason. A mom and two little ones, they walked right thru our campsite multiple times, even with people out and about. Then they came back at night and that did startle me a bit but it was totally worth it!

Maybe not the best choice if you have very young kids (pit toliets, no electricity, might not even be running water) but I would highly recommend for anyone else.

From the Olympic National Park website:

"Tents only. Near treeline, but among groves of subalpine firs; elevation 5,400'. Access road is winding, gravel, not suitable for RVs or trailers."

From me: incredible views, few campsites, pit toilets, NO POTABLE WATER AVAILABLE, and DO NOT DRIVE DEER PARK ROAD UNLESS YOU HAVE AN SUV WITH DECENT CLEARANCE and are not afraid of heights. There are steep dropoffs with no shoulder and the road winds in switchbacks and hairpins.

You can walk from the campground to the top of Blue Mountain for an incredible 360-degree view of the Olympic Range, Vancouver, and the Puget Sound.
