-Decent parking.
-Clean bathrooms with running water.
-You need a discovery pass which is $30/year or $10 for a day pass.
-Lots of camp sites/people at this park but only ran into 2 couples on the trail.

Trail well kept. We hiked end of June so water beds were dry. I bet this would be more scenic in the spring.

We really enjoyed this hike. We combined it with Steam Donkey and Maple Valley as well.

We parked at the Park Office then walked to the Steam Donkey Trail and continued onto the Maple Valley Trail. It was gorgeous and not difficult at all. We did go on a rainy day though so it was a little muddy in some place. We will definitely be going back!

Awesome for mountain biking to campground. That makes this trail a great jumping off point for hikes into the Olympic National Park.

My boys (4 and 5 years old) have three criteria they want in a trail: Trees, bridges, and waterfalls. We went in early September and this trail had two of the three, with signs of the third. With the extreme dryness we had this summer, there was very little water to be found. Other then that, this trail was great and we look forward to doing it again!

We camped here for Father's Day Weekend, Fri - Sun.
Pros: amazing showers, clean facilities, friendly park rangers, firewood available, spaces are reservable, located near plenty of outdoor fun.
Cons: some sites very close to each other, lots of gravel to sleep on, on a noticeable slope, could hear Hwy 101 from our campsite 24 hours a day. This included the semis at 3:00 a.m. I've never seen a campground this noisy.
Recommendations: try to reserve a space in the 80's. We were in the 50's, and those are all near the road. We walked around and found the 80's have BEAUTIFUL views of the water, and we didn't really hear the road noise from there. Also, expect it to be colder than the forecasted weather - you're near the water! If you can't get a space in the 80's, consider bringing some ear plugs.
Yes, we would go back to this campground, but only if we get get one of the better sites. Otherwise, we may check out some of the other campgrounds in the area.
Happy Trails!
