RV Park Review: It’s all about location at Hobuck Beach

Hobuck Beach Resort near Neah Bay, Wash., sits right on the very tip of the Olympic Peninsula. It could have better amenities, but that view of the Washington coast is unbeatable.

We pulled in and our jaws immediately dropped at the beautiful surroundings. Hook-up sites are no more than 50 feet from Hobuck Beach, with commanding views of the Pacific Ocean.

That said, sites are pretty tight, with very little to in the way of privacy screening. If you're OK with essentially hanging out in a parking lot with a great view, then this place works well.

The beach offers fantastic walking opportunities, and more than a few people were surfing the breaks here. We spent our time hiking at nearby Shi Shi Beach, one of the best coastal hikes in Washington, and at Cape Flattery on the northern tip of the peninsula.

Hobuck has 10 hook-up sites and a large meadow for dry camping. They don't take reservations, so the two-hour drive from Port Angeles is something of a crapshoot. You may get a site, but if you're shut out, you can fall back on the dry-camping spots.

As for amenities, they have (not great) wifi and a very basic bathroom. Hook-up sites have fire pits and picnic tables. And if you're looking for a cabin, Hobuck has them at $155 per night in the summer, $115 in winter.

Full hook-ups cost $40 -- totally worth it for that amazing view.
