Second time to Olympic. Beautiful place sadly populated by people on their cell phones. Hikes are elementary to advanced/scary. The key areas are quite diverse so one stop does not do the park justice. Park Rangers are terrific and very patient. Be sure to see...More

We talked to a park ranger who provided us with a map and a wealth of information on what to see and how to prioritize seeing it. They had the best exhibits of all the Olympic visitor centers.

Typically, National Parks have nice visitor centers staffed with friendly rangers and this one is no exception. Good way to get information before heading into the park.

Very helpful ranger and staff. We bought our National Park pass here. It was very busy and I do think they could benefit from another person to help keep up with the traffic.

Even if you have a Discovery Pass for National parks if you are somewhat new to visiting Olympic National Park this is a great place to stop to visit for maps, books, tips & a clean bathroom break!

You could see parts of it, but not all. Perhaps drive up to Hurricane Ridge, then drive west to Lake Crescent and the South to the rain forest. Even that would be a long day, and you would miss the Elwah Valley, Solduc and... More

There's a small shopping center Forks Outfitters on the south side of Forks that might let you stay there. There's also an RV park the Forks 101 RV Park which is across 101 from the outfitters on a side street.
