I like the idea of being closer to trails in the individual sites, but the alternative definitely seems less expensive.

I should try to familiarize myself with locations of all the campgrounds, trails, etc.
There might be some greener ways to get to the Olympic National Park. Check out their website:
Getting to the Olympic Peninsula | Olympic Peninsula

I guess it all depends on the exact place where we end up. Maybe if there are enough of us it might be worth sorting out a coach to get us there and bring us back. Does anyone know what other useful websites there are for the area? I've found a few here:
Olympic Peninsula website:
Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau | Olympic Peninsula

This one has links to campsites and stuff:
CAMPING on Washington State's Olympic Peninsula

another one here:
Olympic National Forest Campgrounds

Some general info here:
Olympic National Park - Planning Your Wilderness Trip (U.S. National Park Service)

Another general one:
Olympic National Forest- Home

A waterfall trail (does the picture on the website remind you of anywhere?):
The Olympic Peninsula Waterfall Trail | Olympic Peninsula

I'll leave it there. Had a bit of google over load! Hahaha.
