This Park is a real gem! There are many ways to enter the Park, but you can't drive through it - you need to come out the same way you went in. Between the coastal beaches, the Hoh Rain Forest, and the breathtaking views from Hurricane Ridge, the Park is truly is a class of its own.

Definitely worth the time. Good information from the rangers and volunteers and very interesting interpretive exhibits about the area. This is what I expect from a national park visitor center and they delivered.

The Visitor Centre is a good place to start your visit to the Olympic National Park. People are friendly and helpful. You can get maps for free and buy collectibles. The only negative thing to say is I asked about the weather at Hurricane Ridge, which got answered. But when asking if they would suggest if I should do the... More

We stopped into the visitor center and were very glad we did! The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, pointing us in the right directions and giving us helpful hints of where and what to see. They provided brochures and info that we would not have had on our own. Great job Rangers and volunteers!

The National Park Service deserves praise for its visitor centers in general and this one, specifically. There were a number of informative displays, an orientation film, a hands-on room for the kids, a gift shop, and the fantastic park service personnel. These individuals are always ready to help with a map or recommendation for a hike (or a restaurant )... More

This is a beautiful well-maintained national park with dozens of hiking trails and unbelievable views! I could not believe how clean the bathrooms were in this national park. Kudos to the park crews for keeping the bathrooms so pristine and the trails so well-maintained. I love this place!

Good exhibits, friendly service, gorgeous park. During our visits, there were fires in both the rain forest and Canada, and the staff kept visitors updated with the latest information and details of how these fires are managed. I would have liked more information on the wide varieties of butterflies we saw on our hikes, but that's a minor criticism. The... More

Went for breakfast at the Fairmount then drove to the Elwha dam removal sight. It was a beautiful sunny warm day and the lack of water in the river is very dishearting.

I would definitely recommend this stop do anyone before they visit the park. It is full of maps, a movie and very knowledgeable Rangers. There is also a gift shop. A must do for anyone visiting the area
