Absolutely beautiful!

The rain forest was beautiful! Although it was cold in the areas surrounding the rainforest, it was perfectly temperate inside. In October! And even though it was raining, the... read more

We thought this area would be similar to the Hoh Rainforest. To us, it was not. The lake is pretty, though. The whole area has kind of mixed ownership. Some of it is owned by the Quinault Indians. Some appears to be patches of privately owned property. Some is government owned. Only the north shore of the lake is part... More

The rain forest was beautiful! Although it was cold in the areas surrounding the rainforest, it was perfectly temperate inside. In October! And even though it was raining, the canopy was thick enough that we didn't hardly feel any of it! Make sure to bring a camera because there are a lot of things to see! Make sure check out... More

I am glad I took the time to go and see this and go for a hike. The trails were amazing and so much to see. I wish I had more time I would have loved to hike around more and see more of the forest. It was a perfect day no rain and sunny skies.

Amazing, this was our first stop in the Olympics and one of the best. It was an easy walk to enjoy the breathtaking views of the enormous evergreens. Don't miss this one you'll regret it!!

We did not have enough time to walk or take in all the sights but seriously some of the scenic views were really breathtaking! I thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

Seriously could a place be more amazing!! I liked this area a little more than the Hoh area, both are fantastic though. Do the loop around the lake and stop at as many of the hikes you possibly can. The south side has days worth so pick one or two longer ones that work within your time frame. Surprisingly I... More

Was rushed and did not get to spend enough time here. Beautiful and interesting are the best words I can come up with. I really enjoyed what time I had.

May be on a smaller scale than the Hon Rainforest but every bit as good. Ideal for children and more to do.

If you have a good rain coat, grab it and head to the Quinault Rain Forest. We hiked here for three days and are so sorry to have had to leave this area. The trails are all nice and the hidden waterfalls and other gems along the way are surprisingly beautiful.

We stayed in a "Deluxe Cabin" on a beach in the Quinault Rain Forest for a few days @$259.00 a night! Expensive; yet I would stay here again. The cabin was only a couple hundred yards from the ocean; with beautiful views. It faced West; as such, a beautiful sunset every night! The cabin itself was wonderful, with a Jacuzzi... More
