“Fabulous Getaway!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

We took the LONG journey out to the North Olympic Coast and stayed in one of the RV Park Cabins with a great view of the beach. Office closed at 5pm but our "late checkin" was not a problem. The cabin was clean and we were pleasantly surprised to have wifi and satellite tv so far out in the middle of nowhere. Our kids loved the convenienent access to the beautiful and secluded beach. The highlight of the trip was watching Gray Whales as they they were visible off the beach with the naked eye. AMAZING to say the least!!! We watched them both in the morning and afternoon on the second day.

Bring plenty of food because there is no place to get food at Hobuck Beach and Neah Bay is very limited. We did enjoy take out pizza and fresh smoked salmon from the pizza place in town.

We were there during the middle of the week so the place was very quiet. I belive there was someone "living" in the RV next to (4 feet) from our cabin but they did not impact our stay. A few other cabins were booked but the place was otherwise empty.

I have spent a lot of time on the beach and this place was one of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches ever. We did not hike to Shi Shi or Lake Ozette Beaches because we felt Hobock had everything we wanted and our kids are a little young for the round trip. Maybe next time.

We did hike the "Cape Trail" which was great for the kids and a special experience to see such a magnificent sight. Cape Flattery and the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary were more spectatular than we could imagine.

We will certainly be back.

We stayed in October, and it was not raining. Although it's really the only place to stay in Neah Bay, that is not saying much. The whole staying on the reservation thing is just YUCK. It's trashy, the whole place is not well maintained. The beach is secluded, but it had tons of seaweed and sand flees. There are also not a lot of trails to hop on from there, and the waves are "wimpy". We mainly saw people on kayak's in the water. We stayed in the largest "cabin" that sleeps 6. It was just okay. The walls were painted a 50's Hospital Green, that did little to help it out. Curtains & bedding were very faded & thin. I am fine with out dated, but these were worn out. The bathroom/shower was very nice though. And they did provide little soaps/shampoos (smelled more "guy like"). Kitchen was fine, nothing fancy. It was stocked fairly well. The whole cabin was similar to a boat, sliding doors, loft, tiny. The upstairs had two full size beds, but adults cannot stand up without hitting their heads. Kids are fine. Downstairs bedroom has a full size bed, but very little room to walk around the bed. The "living room" faces the water which is nice, but there is only one couch. Outside on the porch/deck has 4 chairs. It has wi fi, but it does not reach all of the cabins. I would not stay there again. The whole experience was long and tiring to get there. And once there, very disappointing. Our kids wanted to leave pretty quick because they were bored. And you are so far from anything, it takes a good hour to get anywhere! Never again! Pros, if you are a very private person and you want to get away to "not much", this is the place for you. You can walk to the beach in a minute, but it is not that great once you get down there remember.

I camped with my SO over the Labor Day weekend at Hobuck. It is a truly lovely large beach on the Pacific Coast in the Makah Indian reservation. There are no delineated camp sites, but there are some scattered picnic tables and fire rings. Being a reservation, the rules are much more relaxed than at State campgrounds. We got there on a Thursday night before the Labor Day weekend, and had virtually the pick of where we wanted to set up our tent. We chose a nice place slightly behind the dunes where we would get the late afternoon sun. At other times of the year, it might be more advantageous to get in the gulleys behind the first dunes, as these would be very protected from winds or any storms blowing ashore from the ocean. The beach is vast, and we took our kayaks out onto the Pacific, where we encountered a migrating pod of grey whales. Fantastic! Kite flying is great, like on so many beaches along the Northwest Coast, and there are vast opportunities to do surf fishing, virtually any kind of boating or paddling, surfing and swimming, and hiking on the Reservation or in the adjacent Olympic National Park. The restrooms were very clean, and the hot water was always hot and best of all, FREE! At $20/night, it was even cheaper than the state parks for all forms of camping, including RVs. While there were a couple of hundred people over the Labor Day weekend who were camping, there was no rowdiness or loud music or noise, even though there seemed to be little patrol by the Tribe or anything of that sort. Everyone pretty much was very responsible and respected their neighbors. Several people who were leaving gave us their wood. The only thing negative for me was the lights in some parts of the campground that came on when it got dark. I prefer absolute darkness so that I can see the stars, but there is some very low and otherwise unobtrusive lights that stay on all night. There was no problem with regards to sleeping because of the lights; they are very low. Some may have liked them for an added sense of security, but I never felt the least insecure there, even walking out on the beach alone at night. A wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Pitch your tent in the trees or gulley near the beach if there are westerly winds; otherwise conside...

We were fortunate to stay in one of the newest cabins, so it was nice and clean. It was a very short walk to the beach which was so nice. The place itself is OK, but this area of Washington has so much to offer in terms of beauty. The drive getting there was half the fun as well as the hike to the very NW corner of the US.

We stayed in a RV park cabin this past weekend, and it was great! It was super clean, oceanfront, fully stocked, and just plain wonderful all the way around. We only spent one night while completing the Olympic Peninsula loop, but I definitely want to go back and spend a few days!

We reserved a cabin months ahead of time, then a week prior to our stay, they call and cancel on us. "We have a contract with a bigger group", they explain.
It seems best not to rely on this business.

We stayed RV Loft Cabin #19 for two nights over Memorial Day weekend and had a great family getaway. Traveled with my wife, and 7, 5, & 2 yr old kids, paired up with another couple with a 5 and 1 yr old. The dads and older kids set up tents in some trees about 50 feet from the cabin...great for the kids as first time campers. The moms slept inside with the little ones. Didn't need the camping bailout option either night, but it was nice to have if we needed it. The proprieters were very flexible with us "camping" and did not charge us extra for this. In fact, they gave us a 30% discount for being in the military!

The cabin was clean and in good condition. Highly recommend getting one of the 3 loft cabins...they are the only ones with firepits right out your front steps and have great covered decks that overlook the beach. The other cabins are very closeby, but have a small parking lot that separates you from the beach. They seemed nice too, but if you can get one, the lofts are worth the extra money.

Not a bad idea to bring some firewood if you intend to use the firepit. I'm sure you could also find driftwood, but it might take some effort. Also bring all the food you want for the weekend. Not much in the way of shopping/dining options in the area.

The beach was very nice...check the tides and be sure to hike to the far south end of the beach ~ 1.5 miles away. There was a small "river" (Sooes, I think) feeding into the ocean along the way. Easily forded it (knee deep at low tide minus an hour) to continue on to the large rock outcrops at the south end of the beach. My guess is the hike is probably only passable at low tide +-90 minutes or so. We ventured just beyond the south rocks, and came upon about 6 bald eagles just hanging out on the beach. Watched them from about 30 yards away. Later that evening, we were treated to quite a show from the deck of the cabin. Bald eagles feeding on fish on the beach directly in front of the cabins...even a little aerial combat as the eagles competed for the best morsels!

The Cape Flattery trail is about a 15 minute drive away and was great...well maintained trail and the kids loved it. Didn't make it to Shi Shi because it would have been more than the kids could handle. Would have been an easy day trip for adults though.

Don't come looking for activities outside of nature...it is a very sleepy area. But if beaches, wildlife, and relaxation are what you're after, this is for you.
