Beautiful Rain Forest

Quinault is a true temperate rain forest. Great hikes and it's very moist. Gatton falls are not exactly falls, but pretty.

Beautiful and more natural type setting. Not as commercialized as the Hoh, but both worth it. We didn't have time to hike on this trip, but would in the future.

This was the only place I wanted to go for 2 years before I got to travel to Washington and every penny was well spent. The people were absolutely the nicest and helpful. I will travel here again sometime in the future.

This was our first stop on our trip around Olympic NP. Some great hikes here, some short and some long but its not crowded and it is just as beautiful if not more so than Hoh. Waterfalls, huge, ancient redwoods, lots of elk and deer. Lake you can rent canoes and paddle on.

What a great place for hiking, exploring or a picnic. Lots of easy hiking trails and big trees plus of course the fantastic moss hanging from the branches.

We enjoyed the visitors center, and the surrounding grounds before taking a 2-3 mile loop hike. We met a family picking berries. I didn't even see the berries! Important note-look up. There is so much to see-we took lots of pictures.

An easy trail for nearly all. The lushness of the forest was overwhelming. Many varieties of birds including Stellars Jay and woodpeckers. We only encountered one other group so we felt as if the place was all ours.

I took the road on the south of the lake. Stopped many times to take photos of streams and waterfalls. It was a beautiful drive. It was not necessary to take any hikes to enjoy the beauty offered along this drive.

On our trip through the Olympic National Park we signed up for a tour through the Quinualt Rain Forest. It was truly magnificent! Our tour started at the Lake Quinault Lodge and lasted approximately 3.5 hours. Our guide, LeRoy, was very knowledgeable of the local history and culture as well as the flora and fauna. He was also very amusing,... More

My wife and I decided to stop at the Quinault Rain Forest Ranger Station on a drive from the Kalaloch Lodge/Beach to Astoria, Oregon. The station has a small exhibit area and gift shop. You will need cash in order to purchase gifts. Modern restrooms are located on site. This ranger station is open Thursday - Monday from June to... More
