National Forest & Other Parks

The vast and varied parks and forests of the Olympic Peninsula offer loads of outdoor recreation and relaxation possibilities.

Top of the list? The 633,000-acre Olympic National Forest, brimming with deep canyons, high mountain ridges, lush rain forests and ocean beaches. Camp, picnic, boat or plot your course over 250 miles of dog-friendly trails. And be sure to harvest a taste of what the forest offers—summer berries, wild mushrooms and oysters fresh from the salt water.

The Olympic Peninsula is also home to 13 state parks and nearly 100 county, city and privately owned park facilities. From alpine wilderness to pristine beaches, there’s nearly no end to sport and leisure. Camp, hike, bike, stroll, fish, boat, beach comb and a whole lot more.
