If you're not familiar with the park or the peninsula, it's worth your time to stop here before going into the park. They have the typical informative rangers on staff, all the permits, guide books, maps, and stuff that you'd need to explore the park and surrounding area. I've enjoyed a number of the evening lecture programs held here over... More

Very nice, helpful, informative staff on hand to talk about this magnificent park and it's amazing features. I visit the Park on a daily basis! National Parks have been offering lots of deals to visit the Parks, so call ahead to find out what days/holidays/ages don't have to pay fees.

Incredible scenery throughout the park, great views along the ridge, deer alongside the road, snow to play in (even in May!--it snowed while we were ascending, and then stopped, but enough had fallen in a short amount of time that we could have a little snowball fight in one of the big fields!). Awesome day in a beautiful park. The... More

Wonderful drive up, although this trip we went right after a major snow. Even though we did not see the view from the very top, the other view points were spectacular.

There is no fee for you to enter the visitor center and wander around looking at displays. You really should visit the Olympic National Park Visitor... More
