The 9-mile road is open as far as the campground, according to Barb Maynes, Olympic National Park spokeswoman.
The last short section of road above the campground remains closed because of erosion damage and is expected to open by the end of the week.
A road grader will work on improving the road's gravel surface this week, Maynes said, and drivers may encounter it on the road.
The campground provides primitive camping, with pit toilets and no drinking water.
Hurricane Hill Road, the 1.5-mile length of road that leads past the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center to the Hurricane Ridge picnic area and Hurricane Hill trailhead, also is now open.
Sections of the 8-mile long Obstruction Point Road are still snow-covered.
Park staff hope to open the first 3 miles to the Waterhole area by end of this month.
Additional information will be released as available.
