Overview

Coho Campground is situated on the west shore of Wynoochee Lake, part of the emerald paradise that is Olympic National Forest. Evergreen conifers and hardwoods provide a beautiful wooded setting.

Natural Features:

Olympic National Forest is located on the Olympic Peninsula in the northwest corner of Washington State, known as the Evergreen State. The Olympic Peninsula is an unique geographic province consisting of five major landscapes: temperate rain forest, rugged mountain terrain, large lowland lakes, cascading rivers and saltwater beaches. Here the flora and fauna provide interest beyond the imagination.

Recreation:

Recreational opportunities abound, including picnicking, swimming, hiking, boating, hunting and fishing, all possible within the area. The Working Forest Nature Trail, an accessible trail beginning inside the campground, is a 1/2-mile interpretive journey into how the natural resources are hard at work providing opportunities and commodities for the American public.

Facilities:

The campground offers 44 standard campsites that will accommodate tents, trailers and RVs up to 36' in length. Two group sites will accommodate up to 16 people each. There are nine walk-in tent camping units, one of which will accommodate 12 people.

Three yurts are also available for reservation with each accommodating a maximum of six people and two vehicles. There is a short walk of 300-500 feet to reach each yurt. Yurt sites #57 and #58 do not allow additional tents, trailers, or RV camping. Yurt site #50 will accommodate an additional tent, trailer, or RV. The yurts are non-smoking units .

Coho has flush toilets, drinking water and trash collection, as well as picnic tables, campfire rings and a paved road. Trails and a boat ramp are also available. An RV dump station is located just outside the campground on Forest Road 2294.

Nearby Attractions:

Scenic Spoon Creek Falls and Wynoochee Falls are both accessed by short trails nearby. The 16-mile Wynoochee Lake Shore Trail circles the entire lake and is open to mountain bikes.

At the nearby Wynoochee Dam, visitors can enjoy exhibits at the vista overlook and a dramatic view of the river gorge just below the dam. Swimming and picnicking facilities are available at the dam.
