  • On the North American continent, except for Alaska's location nearest to Japan. Exploring the Olympic Peninsula to determine the history and origin of the name cape flattery, very interesting. Hiking shoes are essential. Close to Shi-Shi Beach. This walking trail 泥濘nnda 30-60 minutes. Interest, such as beaches, Sandy, rock formations, campers are drawn.

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.
