Camp Mystery - Review

Camp Mystery, Olympics, WA

This camp lies along the trail to Marmot Pass, approximately 4.5 miles from the trailhead, and makes a good base for those who wish to venture further past Marmott Pass to Tubal Cain Mine or those who choose to climb Buckhorn Mountain.
The camp is located in a shelter of alpine trees. Most of the sites are spread directly along the trail, for more privacy come early to secure one of the more secluded sites.

Water Source: Creek running directly next to the sites.
Fires: Not allowed
Facilities: None
Permits: Not Required. Sites available on first come first served basis
Round Trip: 9 miles
Elevation gain: 3000 ft

Notes: There are several sites with spectacular views available on the knoll at the South end of the Marmot Pass. Camp Mystery however is the last water source, and  if you wish camp higher to enjoy the views you will have to carry all your water. (Or come early in the season when melting snow is an option).
The area is open to dogs, be prepared to see many of them along the trail and in the camp.
