Olympic Peninsula Facts

Here’s How You Do It:

First narrow down where you’ll want to stay. If it is camping, check on advance reservations. A real bonus is that of the 17 campgrounds in the Olympic National Park, 16 are first come/first serve and you are able to get sites without hysteria, however, weekends in summer months get very busy on the coast so plan ahead for those locations and get there early. Kalaloch, on the ocean, takes reservations. We got a first come/first serve there but it was on a Tuesday.
