Description

This used to be a free spot to camp right by the water and next to the old Whittier airstrip, the town has turned the spot right by the water into day use only and created a large gravel lot next to it as a place to camp divided up into large parking spots as camp site. $20 for an RV spot. I did not realize this until the morning because I had always been told this was a free site. So I didn't pay. The view and location are still nice. There are put toilets and trash, nothing else. Verizon signal is ok unless a cruise ship shows up, then no signal until it's gone. Portage Pass trail makes this place worth it though.

There are two city campgrounds - this one far and above the one closest to town which has rough roads and a big of a scary feel. This cg is just after you go through tunnel and is a large approximately football field sized gravel lot with parking around the perimeter. A view of the water from some sites and the mountain with its waterfall is above you.

They need an on site payment drop box - to go into town on a day it’s pouring rain to find the harbor master is a big ask.

Large gravel parking lot. Must be new this year, last year you could camp right next to the bay. Not now. $20 a night.

The beach is day use only now. They have a roped off area for camping and pay $20 night at the kiosk Kiosks at the Harbor Office in town. Also got caught of guard by the $20 toll you pay to pass thought-the tunnel.

This used to be a free spot to camp right by the water and next to the old Whittier airstrip, but going with the them of "everything's shittier in Whittier" the town has turned the spot right by the water into day use only and created a large gravel lot next to it as a place to camp divided up into large parking spots as camp site. $20 for an RV spot. I did not realize this until the morning because I had always been told this was a free site. So I didn't pay. The view and location are still nice. There are put toilets and trash, nothing else.
