Great views, really helpful staff and some interesting walks but so full of bugs that we cut our visit short.

The Rangers helped us plan our week for exploring and seeing the sights. Warned us about the road closing from 9-1 every day so we could get an early start. That saved a lot of aggravation.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

It was late in the day when I visited Hurricane Ridge. It was still spectacular to say the least. Driving up to Hurricane Ridge is a picture around every turn. The sun setting on the mountains offered different aspects of color making for great pictures.

The Visitor Center itself was closed for remodeling, but the Park is spectacular. Hurricane Ridge was socked in, which is not unusual, but the drive there is worth the effort. The Olympic Mountains are overlooked by many, but they certainly shouldn't be.

Spend some time there after visiting the upper deck viewing and the back side patio. It is cold there.

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.
