Westport Lighthouse Campground and RV Park (Military Campground)

Westport Lighthouse Campground and RV Park is located on the grounds of Gray's Harbor Lighthouse and is run by the United States Coast Guard. You  must have a valid military ID to utilize this campground.  The reservation process was a bit complicated - but was well worth the effort.  The sites have water and electricity. There is a rustic bathroom and shower. Nothing fancy - but not scary to use.  The sites cost only $15 a night.

This is RVing as one dares to imagine it. We were the only ones in the campground, we were under a LIGHTHOUSE, walking distance to the beach, it was quiet and peaceful and wonderful. The campground IS rustic. This was the hardest spot for Michael to get our 31 foot trailer into. Our space was narrow and uneven, and the road was muddy.  However, once we were in - we LOVED it.  We had a lot of space around the "RV dirt pad," a fire ring, two tables and lots of trees around us.
The lighthouse is operational and the keeper gives a GREAT tour. The tour is free to military ID card holders.

We barely scratched the surface of things to do in the Westport area, but we had a blast and this little campground is a perfect place to launch for adventures.
