Kalaloch is a gorgeous campground with a superb beach in Olympic National Park. Though it takes a while to get to, the experience is well worth the drive. There is, of course, the Pacific Ocean beach with it's sandy expanse and enormous piles of driftwood, but there is also a little stream that is safer to play in. It even has a small swimming hole that my daughter and I used often. Things to consider: 1) No showers, but good bathrooms 2) Bear issues (we've never seen one, but...) 3) DO NOT camp on the Hwy 101 side! You awake in the middle of the night to 18-wheelers that sound as though they're plowing through the trees and will be crushing you immediately. It's not pleasant. 4) They may have wheelchair accessible campsites (I don't know), but the trails to the beach would not be considered handicapped-friendly. Also, to get to the sandy beach, you have to climb over piles of nearly redwood-sized driftwood. 5) Be sure to fill up with gas in Forks or Westport (?). Don't wait until you get to Kalaloch. Your only option for miles would be Kalaloch Lodge and gas there was $3.79/gallon!!!!! It was about .90 higher there than in Seattle! Still, regardless of those issues, this is our family's favorite campground ever!! PS. Ruby Beach, a day park about six miles north of Kalaloch, is breathtaking and great for a day trip!!!

This place is an absolute gem. This makes the long drive out to Rialto Beach well worth it. You can hear the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean just around two miles away from your site, that's how quiet it is. If you drive over to the beach, it is filled with round rocks smoothed by the waves and all kinds of driftwood. The sea stacks are a sight and the sunset here can be absolutely beautiful. This might be my favorite spot not only to camp, but just to be alive.
