Visitors center was very crowded when we stopped so we just got a map and explored on our own. We hike by Sol Duc falls. There looked to be many more amazing sights and trails. Would recommend allowing several days to visit.

We made our way up to Hurricane Ridge which is a 17 mile drive up the mountains. Once up there it was 20° cooler (so, take your jacket). The visitor center was in excellent condition, clean, and well organized. The staff was helpful and courteous. A wonderful selection of merchandise to buy (bring your wallet) and a nice area for...

The little older ladies that volunteer at the tourism centre are just awesome! They knew the area so well and provided me with all the info I needed for my short visit and recommended delicious restaurants to me. Hey also helped me find accommodations as I was totally unprepared. Great job ladies!!!

Most National Parks have good visitor centers with excellent displays and all the information needed for an enjoyable visit. This one is no exception.

Incredibly busy when we arrived, but staff were patient and helpful even though I can imagine they were saying the same things over and over again. Everyone was very helpful. The center itself had very interesting displays that my kids enjoyed.

Informative, providing information necessary for a day at Hurricane Ridge. Nice rangers and a good sized parking lot, often a problem.

Having only one afternoon to spend in the Olympic Park area, we stopped by the Port Angeles visitor center to ask some questions. We were supplied with helpful information and good directions which made our afternoon very enjoyable.

This is where you need to start in exploring the Olympic National Park, the staff was not that helpful though. We have been to a lot of National Park and we find them here not too informative.

Stopped here upon our arrival into Port Angeles for what would be a three day trip in Olympic. We told the Ranger what we wanted to see and that we had three nights, and asked what he would recommend our itinerary be. He was so encouraging and told us most people come to the park and say "I have three... More
