Olympic National Park
About Olympic National Park, Port Angeles
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

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.
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.
Absolutely loved camping here! We camped at heart O the Hills camping area, some of the areas are kinda small and if you have 2 cars finding parking is definitely a struggle. This place also fills up very very quickly, come before 9 am on Saturday and before 8 pm on Friday if you want a good spot. We were lucky and got a really nice large area for a group of six of us and had a great time. The bathrooms were great, unfortunately no showers or soap dispensers so remember to bring your own. Also, they do sell firewood at loop C in case you forgot, but it does get locked at some point in the night. All in all great place to camp and loved all of it
Every time I come here I get to see something new, even on repeat visits. There are so many places to visit and they are all amazing! We saw Black Bears and Mountain Goats grazing in the Seven Lakes Basin, Grouse, Chipmunks, and Red Squirrels, along the trail, fields of beautiful flowers, huge trees some covered in moss, lakes with tadpoles and frogs, Roosevelt Elk resting in the Hoh River Basin, and so many other things that took our breath away!
Hoh River Trail to Blue Glacier over 3 days and 2 nights. The trail was extremely well maintained, did have to climb down a ladder in an avalanche chute which was wild but manageable and only slightly makes you pee yourself. Camped by a gravel bar next the river both night about 9 miles in, campfires allowed. We had a permit for Elk Lake but decided on going back to the river because of how amazing that campsite was.
