We have stayed at the Lake Quinault lodge as well as an RV park 1 mile up the road from the lodge. The lodge is really very popular and is very well done. Watch for Groupons for deals as this can be very expensive in summer months. The RV camp site up the road is nice but not spectacular. Its... More

While the Hoh Rain Forest with its Hall of Mosses Trail and glacier feed Hoh River is a must see, the Quinault Rain Forest is even better because of its beauty coupled with its greater variety. The Quinault not only offers great trails though moss covered forests such as the Quinault Rainforest Nature Tail and Cedar Bog Trail; Lake Quinault... More

We did both Quinault and the Hoh Rain Forest. They were quite similar in many aspects, yet unique in others. I'll have to go through my notes but if we were to do it over, I'd go with Quinault b/c of the various hiking trails and location. They both are amazing and breathtaking so you really can't go wrong. Can't... More

This is a wonderful place to see! Beauty and tranquility at its finest. There are tons of trails to hike if you have the time. The flora and fauna are extraordinary.

This is a really nice location to visit. Easy hiking trail with good sights. Lots of little things like mushrooms and banana slugs. Did not see any wildlife, but didn't run into a hundred people too. It was a great day trip destination and the lake was about as pretty as it gets. I think the resort might make a... More

We spent two half days at the Quinault rainforest and wished we had more time here! As we travel with young kids (5,8) we do not hike more than about 6 miles per hike - and this rainforest was perfect for us! The rainforset is gorgeous, some trails are easy and still beautiful and give you the rainforest experience. Some... More

A good place to visit, there are some record breaking trees and lush green setting for photo ops. We were lucky enough to see a black bear there on a visit several years ago.

We visited the Ranger station to get some info and was recommended a few trails located up the hills behind the station such as Gatton Creek and Cascade Falls. We went up to both first driving half way up Gatton Creek to head into the river. A lot of the trees int he area had been blown down around 2007... More

Quinault Loop trail, Olympic National Park Beautiful 4-5 mile loop trail that goes up into the forest to see some cascades large trees and get our introduction to the rain forest. Then the trail follows a stream down to the lake and follows the lake shore back to the ranger station. Along the way we saw a large Marmot sunning... More

Beautiful. Tons of great hiking. Tons of wildlife. We took a guided tour because I wasn't familiar with the area.
