Description

Huge paved lot, fairly flat, with a restroom. Filled up during the day with hikers and four wheelers heading out, but was alone at night and nobody bothered me. A local said she sees people camp out here all of the time. It’s a pretty spot and quiet.

We didn't stay there because a Discovery Pass is required and didn't want to pay for it.

Perfect location between Olympia, and Ocean Shores. Quite place 1/4 mile off Highway 8.
Enough room to park many many vehicles. Remember this is a location for Hikers, Mountain Bikers, And all sorts of Off road atvs. There is a working porty potty on site. Requires a Wa State Discovery pass. Power lines run over parking area they are very quite.

Report Check-In

Quiet place to spend the night. power lines directly overhead. 1 bar Verizon. ATVs started pulling in about 8am!

Report Check-In

Pretty nice spot, I arrived pretty late and there was already another person there, but no one else. People started showing up in the morning though. There’s actually better spots for car camping that I saw along the road out. A couple hidden pullouts.

Report Check-In

Probably best to avoid on the weekends, had a couple guys show up at 9pm, they rolled up quietly but as soon as they parked they blasted music, possibly inebriated and had a giant trailer full of atvs and dirt bikes... and pretty sure one of them was firing off a gun to impress their friends, that's when we decided to get out of there without looking back.

Report Check-In

Very large, paved parking lot with rest rooms. Large RVs can easily turn around. Relatively quiet. One other camper here for the night.

Report Check-In

Stayed one night with other car and van. Not a bad spot for a night, we got there around 6 and there were only two cars in the parking lot. But, unfortunately got a knock at about 9:45am the next morning saying we can’t camp here. But I’d say its still a great spot just leave before 9 and you shouldn’t be bothered. Not too loud here either, and felt pretty safe.

Report Check-In

Stayed one night with two other vans. Lots of logging trucks going up and down the adjacent gravel road all night and some distant highway noise, but good place for an overnight stop.

Report Check-In

a big ole lot with cell service and a privy. the occasional car driving up and down the road late into the night. people show up early on the weekend to atv. theyre unintrusive though. on saturdays there are quite a lot of people. discover pass required but i stayed here several nights and no one ever said anything. im not sure if people actually check to see if you have one? on the sign it says something about fishing and hunting.

Report Check-In

Spent a Saturday night here, no issues. Rolled in before nightfall and the entire lot was full of off-roaders and a lot of noise. At night, had the lot to myself until a couple cars/RV’s crept in between 12-2am. Quiet, pit toilets, free (discover pass needed), great for an overnight stop. There are some trails for hiking, biking, off-roading if you’re so inclined. 4 bars AT&T LTE.

Update: We decided to stay a second night and the quiet was abruptly interrupted by two cars dueling it out doing doughnuts/burnouts all over the parking lot around us for a solid 30 minutes. So much for the peace. 😒

We parked at the back of the large paved lot. Plenty of room! We have two bars of 4G on Verizon, four bars of 4G on T Mobile. No signs saying no camping. A WA Discover Pass is required though. Looks like a great spot for an overnight stay. 🤞
