This typical fishing town has a very special charm. Practically it does not offer anything, but the view of the ocean and the air you breathe makes the place magical.

No matter where you go when you visit the reservation, you are sure to need your camera! The Quileute people are more than accommodating. Hint though: this is a Federal Indian Reservation. Please don't expect fancy homes or buildings. I can't tell you how many people I was with remarked to my how "poor" it looked. After the fourth person... More

The only thing to see here is a view of the ocean and you will get a better one hiking down to second beach. The town is dirty and depressing. I don't understand why it is even listed as an attraction. The hotel there is surrounded by squalor, there are no restaurants and nothing to do.

We went for La Push Beach and found the homes in disrepair. We went into the gift shop at the resort thinking to find some really great hand-made clothing, trinkets and what-not but were very disappointed. There were a few little items but most were things I could have bought from a catalog or a store at the airport and... More

This is traditional Quileute tribal land, and they are very welcoming to all visitors. We stayed here for several nights and wandered all through the town. There is a small grocery store, restaurant, marina, motel & cabins, and RV park plus homes and a school and so on. The reservation appears to be well managed and fairly prosperous without a... More

It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited in the states. It is so clean & so very well managed that I was really blown away. The views you will see are breathtaking, the people there are so friendly & helpful, & there is just so much to take in!!!

La Push is in the reservation, a lovely coastal fishing town with easy access to the beach - good for people of an age to not be crawling over the stacks of huge driftwood just north on Rialto Beach.

I can't believe how beautiful this area was. I went hiking down to a couple of beaches and drove around. At the end of the road there is a doc and I sat there as they unloaded their boats and just took it all in. It was beautiful and I can't wait to get back.

Beautiful beaches but I got harassed by two local boys (18-22yrs). The beaches are beautiful. The parking easy. Plenty to absorb at the Waterfront and Q reservation historic sites. BUT. I must say that I felt very uncomfortable and cut my visit short after two males harassed me on the beach near the construction site, end public parking lot. Thought... More
