Fairholm (also spelled Fairholme) is a campground in Clallam County, Washington, United States. The community is located at the west end of Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Park. Fairholm also features a general store, cafe, and other park-related buildings.

Fairholm was settled just prior to 1891 by W.V. Wilson and was named by Caroline Jones. A post office, named "Fairholme", was there from 1891 to 1902; George Mitchell was its first postmaster. Boat service on Lake Crescent connected Fairholm to Piedmont on the northeastern shore.
