Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"For sheer escapism, it’s hard to beat Upper Clearwater. I’ll get blasted for saying this, but there may be only one other campground on the entire Olympic Peninsula in a more remote setting that is accessible by automobile. That’s Yahoo Lake, and it’s right up the road from Upper Clearwater."

Although the location of this campground is quite nice, I don't think that I would go back. We were camping with 2 very young children (less then 6 months) and had numerous problems with people in neighboring camp sites. One night had a group of young adults showing up after 11 after getting kicked out of their hotel for being too drunk (arriving without flashlights, which we lent them) and the next night had campers with several very noisy dogs (barking started at 4am) and screaming children. I think that the fact that this site is free attracts more "rowdy" campers. Unforunately this is compounded by the fact that the sites are quite close together, lacking privacy. We moved the 3rd night to a 20$ a night campground and had a wonderful time.
