Camp Handy is in the Buckhorn Wilderness area of the Olympic National Forest on the Upper Dungeness. It’s about 3.4 miles in from the trailhead and a pleasant hike. That increases the number of folks that visit. When I was there … a small group of boy scouts showed up to fish the Dungeness River. Instead of camping in a spot off the meadow, I retreated back into the woods where there were several isolated camps (see below). I could walk 30 feet or so and be out in a small meadow (the bright area on the right side of the image). And, I couldn’t hear the scouts.
It was a good camp … only marred by the fact that my self-inflating air mattress had got a hole in it since I last slept on it. A big enough hole that it deflated in less than 10 minutes when I was laying on it. I used the sitting pad (on the log in the photo below) and instead of staying two nights, I only stayed one.
