Directions to Dry Hill and the Dam RV Park

Shockingly we have been hearing from quite a few people that are coming out for the first time. There's still a few of them out there I guess.

To Dry Hill:
Follow Highway 101 into Port Angeles. Once in town, go to Lincoln Street and take a Left. Follow uphill passing Albertsons, then travel about 3 miles. Keep an eye open for a road on the left called Walkabout Way. If you pass the log scales, you just passed it. Go up Walkabout and take your first right at the yellow gate and proceed up to the powerlines.

To Elwha Dam RV Park:
From Walkabout Way, continue West to the Highway 112 Junction (about a mile), go right onto HWY 112. Go downhill a short distance and you'll see the RV Park on the Left. If you cross a big ol' bridge, you've gone too far.

Saturday Night- We are having a group camp event at the Elwha Dam RV Park just 2 miles down the road. Includes camping, spaghetti feed, bike derby, and who knows what else? Cost is $5.
Sunday- Unlimited shuttles from 9-4 and burgers and brats for lunch. Cost is $35 with $5 off if you are in costume.
