ELKAMP is an award-winning campground, recognized in 2022 by industry leaders as one of
the Top campgrounds in the US. ELKAMP boasts 25 spacious campsites, all situated among a
towering old-growth forest. The property is bisected by a sparkling year-round creek that starts
high in the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest just beyond the property. An ever-expanding
trail system traverses the unique variations of our wetlands, forests, and riparian habitats and
provides hours of exploration without ever leaving the property. The Nisqually Gate is the only
year-round entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park and is an easy 25-minute drive from ELKAMP.
Camping guests will find a variety of well-designed campsites offering 30 and 50 AMP power,
fresh water, and a dump station. Guests that prefer to camp un-tethered to power and water will
enjoy the forested primitive sites. All campsites (hook-up and primitive) include a private fire
ring and picnic table, complimentary WIFI, and access to the clean heated bathroom and shower
building, complete with a dishwashing station.
Cabin guests enjoy thoughtfully designed rustic modern cabins. From a cozy one-room cabin,
great for those seeking a charming creek-side experience, or the two-bedroom hillside cabin, a
peaceful retreat nestled among the trees.
Recognized as the quintessential camping trailer, our 2018 Airstream is outfitted with luxury
bedding and extra blankets for sitting around the fire, ELKAMP provides the necessities for
cooking both indoors and outdoors. The Airstream contains a full bath, plenty of storage, two
TVs, and WIFI. Blu-ray DVD player and much more. The Airstream is ideal for guests looking
for a travel trailer experience without the hassle of towing or setting up. The campsite includes a
private fire ring, 2 Adirondack Chairs, and a picnic table.
A visit to ELKAMP wouldn’t be complete without spending a little time browsing the camp
store where an ever-evolving inventory of unique new and vintage items (art, gifts, décor, games,
books, toys, fragrance, apparel, and so much more) mingle with the often forgotten and always
necessary items that make camping comfortable. Also on offer are firewood, propane, and ice
along with some of our favorite snacks and west coast craft beer and wine choices.
