For many people, Labor Day weekend can mean packing up the family and heading to a campground for one last taste of summer.
This weekend is expected to be one of the biggest camping weekends of the year.
“Plan ahead and get an early start on Friday,” Olympic National Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said. “Sometime you don’t want to have a Plan B, but sometimes it helps.”
No individual-site reservations are accepted at park campgrounds, most of which have running water, toilets and garbage containers.
There are 15 road-accessible campgrounds inside Olympic National Park, including the overflow South Beach campground near Kalaloch.
The Dosewallips campground is closed because of a road washout and the July Creek campground has been converted to a picnic area.
All other park campgrounds are open and charge between $8 and $12 per night. The cost of camping is separate from park entrance fees.
