BOGACHIEL STATE PARK
Bogachiel State Park is a thickly forested 123-acre camping park on the banks of the Bogachiel River. It is remotely located on the northwestern tip of Washington state. "It isn't the end of the world, but you can see it from there." So goes a popular Northwest saying about this vicinity. The remote park, located on the tip of the Hoh Rainforest, abounds in lush vegetation.
Plant Life The park is situated on the tip of the Hoh Rainforest. Lush rainforest terrain is formed from the dense rainfall 140-160 inches per year that occurs in this region.
The park was established in 1931. Due to a lack of funds, State Parks entered into an agreement with the Bogachiel Commercial Club and the Forks Chamber of Commerce to jointly operate and manage the area as a public park. State Parks began staffing the park in 1961.
The campground offers 36 standard sites, six sites with power and water, one dump station and two restroom buildings with showers (main campground restroom includes ADA-accessible restrooms/showers). One kitchen shelter without electricity is available to campers.
The park accommodates RVs and combinations of 40 feet or less in length. All campsites are first-come, first-served.
