The Quileute Indian Reservation is quite small in area and composed of one small community, La Push, and some outlying land. Like most reservations, there are some hardships visible but things were better than many other reservations I have been to, which in itself is a sad statement. Also, it was disappointing that I could not find a visitor center... More

This was one of the most enjoyable places we have ever stayed. It is incredibly peaceful and the tribe is so welcoming. I wish we had gotten in town a couple hours earlier on Wednesday when the tribe meets so we could learn more about their history. We stayed in the newly renovated motel. Our room was very comfortable and... More

Like another person suggested I purchased smoked salmon from a family who sells from their home. I would recommend this He was very friendly. Not much to do here but we did watch some salmon fishermen and were lucky enough to see 2 Bald Eagles on the beach. The beach is pretty cool with the rotting trees dotting the shoreline... More

We drove through the Quileute Indian Reservation and bought several slabs of absolutely delicious smoked salmon which the lady has been making for 40 years with salmon caught from the river that flows right in front of her home. Finding a nice area so sit and eat our fresh bread, cheese and deliciously smoked salmon, I had a greater appreciation... More

Beautiful beach, pay the extra to park in the lot and take a stroll along the rocky coast. Check out the gift shop when you get your parking pass. Nice collection of native crafts, books and souvenirs. Friendly helpful staff too.

One of WA most beautiful beaches. It has sandy shores, artistic driftwood, comfortable breeze, and classic wave sounds. Not crowded at all and the view is something to admire. If you are looking for a good beach to relax at consider this one.

Grew up vacationing with parents. Recently was back for a few days and it was just as great.. the Quileute Oceanside resort motel and cabins are great. My sister and I spent several days. She hurt her ankle so we stayed pretty close on first beach a lot of the time. It was really perfect! We wished we could have... More

There is something magical and spiritual about the waters around the Quileute Reservation. I put my hands up to the tribe for welcoming "outsiders" to their reservation. We appreciate being able to buy crab, fish, and tuna off the boats as they unload. You can purchase smoked salmon from tribal members. Be kind and gentle as I believe this is... More

This place is so beautiful with its beaches, colorful totem poles, and their cemetery that is off limits to anyone not a Quileute made me want to go into this mysterious place, but I obeyed the warning on the entrance to the cemetery as I gazed up at the gravel drive leading up the hill and under a pretty vine...
