Sequim Elks LodgeOur Opinion: Recommend.  Private; you must be an Elk to stay here.

Date of Stay: August 7 and 8, 2011.

Weather During Stay: Cool, gloomy, foggy mornings, sunny afternoons.

Sites: 20 RV sites are back to back in two long rows facing east and west on a large, grassy field.  All sites have 30 amp E and water.  There are a couple of trees, but most sites are the open.  Sites are suitable for big rigs, and wide enough for slides, awnings and parking a towed vehicle. 

Easy access through the lodge parking lot to the RV sites in back.  Lots of room for dry camping, or parking a cargo trailer or boat.  This is a quiet neighborhood with a rural feel.

We're in site 5Rate: $18/night for W/E.  No dump station available (we heard there is one nearby, but we didn’t need it).

Phone/radio/TV: Good Verizon phones and aircard signal.  No obstructions to block TV satellite dish in most sites.  We didn’t use our antenna.  Local NPR on 91.1 FM (and others).

Elevation/Landscape/Terrain:  This is a very level, flat, grassy area only slightly above sea level.  Views are of other rigs and the lodge, with forested mountains in the distance.  Pleasant neighborhood.

Lighting/Noise: Quiet at night; we weren't bothered by lights at night.

Sites face west and eastFavorite Sites: Not much difference between the sites, so pick according to whether you prefer to face east or west.

Hiking/Walking: There is a paved parcourse/walking trail less than ½ mile from the lodge.  Lots of hiking in Olympic National Park, or at nearby county parks.

Comments: We use this spacious park as a base for day trips into Olympic National Parks.  Easy in and out, spacious, quiet - works great for us.
