Could not ask for a better locale to enjoy everything the beautiful Pacific Northwest has to offer. The breathtaking Olympic mountains on one side, and the incomparable Puget Sound with a view of Canada on the other.

I wish I lived near here, I would walk this everyday! Beautiful, a couple of places to view the lighthouse way off in the distance.

It’s a great walk with small children. Once you get to the shore you can explore, my children loved finding all different looted rocks and sea shells. Be prepared being warm because it’s chilly.

You have options for a walk above the cliffs and thru the forest or you can hike down to the spit and walk along the beach out to the lighthouse at low tide

We went in November so not many animals to see. We did see an eagle right in the parking lot though that was amazing!

One of our favorite places to go camping. If you go from June-August you may want to reserve your spots in advance, especially if it's a weekend. Camp sites are nice, many of them right next to the ocean and the trail that goes along...More
