Stayed at this park for two days in mid June.

Pros:
-Very friendly Staff. (This park is privately owned by a family which lives on site and maintains the park.)

-Nice website listing information about park.

-Large grassy areas to play in or walk dog.

-Things for kids to do: Basketball, horseshoes, and volleyball.
-Clean well maintained restrooms!


Cons:
-Extremely slow wireless internet. (May be fixed by the time you read this. They related that an upgrade for their system is scheduled for early July.)

-Can hear traffic noise from highway. Quiet Hours at park are not enforced.

-Some spaces are VERY narrow. These are the overflow area where (unfortunately) we stayed. With slide-outs extended, there was not space to walk between RVs. Like two feet of space between our side-out and neighbor RV.

So if you have a larger rig, view website and make sure you get one of the spots that allows you plenty of room. Not all sites are equal here. Some places have nice view and space, others not so much.

NOTE: Owners are constantly improving this park. They seemed very interested in visitor feedback and willing to make stay more comfortable and provide information when requested.

Response from Elwha Dam RV Park:

Greetings Oregon Adventure,
Thank you for your review. We must have missed the loud happenings during your stay and apologize, we actually do enforce quiet hours. The overflow sites at that time were just put in and a few RV's ended up parking over what should have been their allotted space. A few adjustments have helped a little and have seeming to go more smoothly. Even so, we are prefacing these sites before booking them. Our utmost goal is for visitors to have the best possible experience ever while here on the Peninsula where ever they end up. Since we didn't meet your expectations, we would love the opportunity to give back the value you deserve. Just give us a call. Kind regards.

Great Weekend retreat for us we are about 1.5 hours away, Owners want to please and they do ! Great base camp to do some exploring. Grand Daughter loved going to Salt Creek and exploring the tide Pools. It had been 20 years since we went to the Hoh Rain Forest but it was just the right day trip. Campground was an Oasis of quiet. Showed my Grand Daughter an Old dude can still play a mean set of Horse Shoes. Lots of places to Hike and the old Dam site is cool to see how it is coming back to nature. Pull through spots where a little tighter than I would have liked but overall a very nice park. Our site was close to where they let their Horses run, my Grand Daughter is big into horses so she was smitten. This one I know I will be taking short hops to recharge the batteries often.

The new owners are just wonderful and are very friendly and helpful. Great Rv sites to set up in. Everyone obeyed the speed limits in the park making it safe for the children to walk around the park and to the pool.

This is the best commercial campground we've seen in 6 months traveling. Everything works, is well maintained. Beautiful new restroom and laundry facilities. Some of the sites have a little privacy (like the one we're in). The location is amazing for visiting Olympic Peninsula highlights. Owners very friendly and helpful. What a great visit! They've worked hard on this place and it shows.

Our stay was amazing. We loved it. Little Gem tucked back in far enough away from the city of Port Angeles, but close enough for a quick food trip. Beautiful area, hikes, and amazing views. Owners were friendly and always working on the grounds. They are sitting on a little gold mine. I hope to be back, but I may have to make my reservation much sooner as more and more people find out about this place. From The Red Head
