Olympic National Park is a United States national park located in the state of Washington, on the Olympic Peninsula. The park has four basic regions: the Pacific coastline, alpine areas, the west side temperate rainforest and the forests of the drier east side. Within the park there are three distinct ecosystems which are sub-alpine forest and wildflower meadow, temperate forest, and the rugged Pacific Shore. These three different ecosystems are in pristine condition and have outstanding scenery. U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt originally created Mount Olympus National Monument on 2 March 1909. It was designated a national park by President Franklin Roosevelt on June 29, 1938. In 1976, Olympic National Park became an International Biosphere Reserve, and in 1981 it was designated a World Heritage Site. In 1988, Congress designated 95 percent of the park as the Olympic Wilderness.Wikipedia

Olympic National Park, Port Angeles Reviews - Write a Review
One of the most beautiful places on earth. The weather is comfortable. Nature Bridge was perfect for an out door wedding. The location made for a fabulous destination wedding with hikes and canoe rides and guides nature walks. There is a lovely waterfall hike. The cabins at Nature Bridge were perfect for a large group. Travel to the park is a pain but worth it.
Anyone who loves the outdoors should visit this place because it has many hiking trails that take you into the forest or along River's and even out to the coast. If you like camping there's more than a couple of choices to pick from. I also enjoyed visiting Lake Crescent with it's cool and beautiful waters surrounded by the forest. The drive on 101 going past Lake Crescent is reason enough to make the drive out there. Happy travels.
What a great national treasure! I am blessed to have it my back yard to enjoy year around. Go explore this incredible treasure chest of natures finest. Welcome to the Olympic Peninsula...... A world renown experience
This is undoubtedly God's country!! Absolutely spectacular! Truly unable to be expressed with words. You need to see it with your own eyes. Taken 3 major backpacking trips within the Olympics and I continue to turn every corner with mouth agape in wonder and awe. Will forever be in my heart.
My new favorite National Park. We visited in early October and hiked the Heather Park loop. There don't appear to be many visitors in October, which was perfect for us. If you don't want to hike, the drive up Hurricane Ridge to the visitor's center is full of breathtaking views. Also, there is so much more to the Park than just Hurricane Ridge: The various rainforests, the various beaches, waterfalls. There is a ton of stuff to explore.
