This lake has a strange feel to it. The water is rust color. Minimal wild life. We paddled to Gardeners island and walked around it. No animal trails or scat. Seemed odd. Did enjoy paddling to a different area. Found the trail head to hike to the ocean. The minimally used primitive trail was a bit challenging. The beach was... More

The coastal hike with views of the Pacific, sea stacks and lots of sea birds. There are boardwalk trails that lead to the coast and the majesty of the forest is peaceful and exciting all at once. Close to Forks and not far form Neah Bay.

We sat for hours on the beach having lunch, taking in the unimaginable view with the bald eagles flying overhead & the sound of the seals barking.,calm beautiful blue water. The hike was one of fun, adventure along with climbing an occasional rock. All in all it was one of the most delightful hikes ever.

we did the 9.1 mile round trip cape Alava, Down the beach. the Sandy Point. You need to do it at low tide. You need to be in shape as we got to spots that required climbing over trees 15 to 20 feet thick and going up and OVER hills with the use of a rope that was 100 feet... More

There aren't any pull outs to see the lake just a small area by the Ranger Station. Was disappointed because it is a large lake but you don't get to see much.

It's a long walk -- 3-miles, but it feels like more. But a lot of it is boardwalk, and it's through some beautiful forrest that will make you feel like there may be ewoks hiding in the trees. We took the Ozette trail on the last day of our amazing hike from Shi Shi Beach. It's got some muddy and... More

This is the second largest lake in Western Washington State....and a place that is truly off the beaten path. It is a long way from anywhere tucked away in the exrteme Northwest corner of the state. We were a little disappointed on our arrival because there was nothing really spectacular to see. Apprently the loop trail to the ocean and... More

We just hiked about 3 miles here because we started late day and it was still really nice. You can swim at the "Devil's Punchbowl" if you like that crisp, cold water! The photo opportunities are great and it's a nice hike for all levels.

June 4th and 5th, 2012. Excellent site: tall-grass shrouded, level and grassy site 20 paces from the lake. Large and secluded, about 40'x40'. We spent 2 nights here and will go back again with our canoe as the lake is remarkable and very secluded. 3 mile hike to beach is worth the effort (no pets allowed).
