Hurricane Ridge Visitors Center has some interesting history to share about the park. Also maps, and other activities; which are available in the park. However; felt most items in center for sale were overpriced!

A very nice visitor center at the top of Hurricane Ridge, surrounded by mountains, snow and wildlife. Facilities were very clean, the displays were very informative about the area, nice giftshop, and a great place to sit and enjoy the beauty of the Olympic National Park!

We stopped at both Hurricane Ridge visitor's centers and they are both very nice and clean with a nice gift shop (clean restroom also). The staff were very nice and answered all of our questions.

The Hurricane Ridge Visitors Center is exactly that, a visitors' center. It offers a lot of merchandise; which is overpriced, and not worth buying!

The visitor's center was undergoing renovation when we visited, so there was not much there. Temporary facilities were in a metal building across the road. Restrooms had limited capacity, making for waiting lines at times.

Even though it was a drizzling day we headed out to see Hurricane Ridge to see what we may see. The drive up to the ridge had many pull over spots for gorgeous photo ops . The fog rising and blowing back in again keeps changing what you see and its all beautiful. Finally at the top and Wow ...... More
