  • We hiked two of the trails and spent some time in the visitors center to ask questions. The ranger helped us identify a fern we didn't know.  more »
  • Quiet, beautiful- we saw 9 seals swimming in the surf. Amazing. You need to be able to climb over big rocks to access the beach, but it's worth it if you can.  more »
  • When you arrive at Hoh Rain Forest, there is a hiking trail that takes you to the Hoh River. You can see the glacial silt flowing in it. Beautiful with the spruce trees, moss and ferns.  more »

Where to stay in Olympic National Park

Many visitors to Olympic National Park choose to pitch a tent at one of 16 campgrounds, many of which stay open throughout the year. The park also offers a mix of lodge rooms, motel rooms, and cabins thanks to two lodges and two resorts. On the Pacific Coast, the Kalaloch Lodge stands as the most isolated of these. If you prefer to rest your head outside the park, consider staying in Port Townsend. This artsy waterside community northeast of the park offers plenty of inns and bed and breakfasts, but they fill up quickly in summer, so reserve ahead if possible. Port Angeles sits a bit closer to the park and offers more functional accommodations in the form of motels and hotels, though you'll also find waterfront inns and cottages in the area. Communities on the park's western side offer a rustic vibe, but they also take more time to get to if you're coming from Seattle.
