Forks Campground at the turn off to South Lake is nice. Turn left at South Lake, go about 75' and turn right. You might get one at North Lake Campground right at the trail head but it is hard this time of year. Rest of the year its closed.
Better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it!

$21.00 a night, $7.00 for an extra car at North Lake. If you have an extra car...park at trailhead parking, where you'll eventually leave your primary vehicle before your backpack.

Was just there yesterday. There are nice walk in sites with bear boxes, picnic tables at the end of the campground...at 4pm (Friday) there was still one available plus a few drive-ins.
