Continuing our journey around the Olympic Peninsula, we drove to the Makah Reservation located on the Northwest most tip of the USA . We set up camp at Hobuck Beach Resort and it proved to be an amazing location for exploring and relaxing.
Here’s the Breakdown:
Location: Makah Reservation, Washington
GPS: 48.3323, -124.6593
Date / Temp: We camped at Hobuck Beach Resort for four nights during mid-September. The weather varied from sunny & clear to 24 hours of rain. The highs were in the mid 70s and the lows were in the 50s.
Amenities: Not only did we have a pull-through site with an ocean-front view, we also had full hookups! The sites were level and easy to set up. There’s a central shower house with clean & private facilities. And, if you’re town an electric car, Hobuck Beach offers multiple charging stations.
Wifi / Cell: Our T-Mobile and AT&T received no service (not even with the booster). Fortunately our WiFiRanger was able to connect us to an open wifi network. Using the resort’s wifi we were able to stream Netflix with a low quality resolution; most importantly, we could easy operate our online business with the connection.
Noise: The only noise we heard at Hobuck Beach was the soothing sound of waves rolling into the shore. There are only 10 full hook-up RV sites – and while they’re close together – all of our neighbors were there to relax and enjoy the peaceful location.
Grocery / Errands: We’d recommend stocking up on groceries before making the trip to Hobuck Beach. There is a general store in town, but prices are steeper in remote locations like this. The town also has a post office, gas station, coffee shop, and a few restaurants.
Dog Friendly: The Hobuck Beach Resort is dog friendly. River really enjoyed walking on the beach and hiking the local trails. We saw a few other dogs during our stay – all were leashed and respectful.
Entertainment: Hiking was our favorite activity in the area. We saw a pod of orkas at the end of the Cape Flattery Trail – it was an awesome hike with dramatic Pacific Ocean viewpoints. The Shi Shi Trail is also located close to the campground.

Places like Hobuck Beach are scramblling to make ends meet. I know campers can save money and have a larger shopping selection when on the road if they shop in larger towns and at big corporate chains. I understand too the need to meet one’s budget, but also important is helping the small independent stores and small towns. Everywhere we travel we witness the on the edge existence of small towns and independent businesses — they are engaged in a struggle to survive. We shop local whenever we can.
We understand completely and contributed to the community in other ways. We try to shop local whenever possible. We hope to drive some tourism and business their way.
