-- RUSTIC CAMPING --
WELCOME TO VIRAGO CAMP
Tucked under the Western slopes of the Olympic Mountains directly across the river from the Bogachiel State Park, Virago Camp welcomes you to the quintessential Olympic Peninsula experience. Hike along a sandy river trail frequented by the local wildlife or take a swim in the majestic Bogachiel herself.
Don’t be surprised if you see Bald Eagles, Salmon, Deer, Elk, or any of the many species of bustling local birds. Pick up a fishing license and try your luck at catching dinner! Steelhead are a local favorite.
Make sure to pack a hammock or bring your favorite chair and relax among Alder, Cottonwood, Spruce, Maple, Douglas Fir, and Dogwood. More of a sun seeker? Simply soak it up in the gentle rolling meadow filled with dragonflies, hummingbirds, and lots of light.
The Virago Campground is a perfect place to home-base your visit to the stunning Olympic Peninsula. A short road trip southbound includes the Hoh Rainforest, Hall of Mosses, Ruby Beach, and Kalaloch lodge. Going North keep your eyes peeled for vampires as you travel 5 minutes to the timber town of Forks where you can visit the Forks Timber Museum or take a self-guided Twilight Tour.
West of Forks enjoy the beauty of First, Second, and Third beaches near the Quileute Reservation or the easy access of Rialto beach at Mora. Continue farther North of Forks and in under an hour, you will see the southern end of pristine Lake Crescent on your way to the Sol Duc Hot Springs.
No matter what direction you set out, you will run into magnificent scenery,
fresh air and plenty of things to refresh body and soul.
Virago Camp is located on the Bogachiel River on the western edge of the Olympic Peninsula, five miles south of Forks, Washington on Highway 101.
