La Push, Olympic Peninsula, Washington – Part 3

Part 3 – Kalaloch, Beach 4, The Big Tree, and Ruby Beach

Where is the best place to watch a Pacific storm blow in?  Kalaloch Lodge, hands down.  From the comfort of your cabin, hotel room, or in our case, the restaurant, Kalaloch Lodge has great views from every direction.

During our trip to the coast, the weather was a roller coaster ride.  To ride out one of the storms, we drove down to Kalaloch Lodge and had a nice long lunch from their great menu and watched the waves crash against the shore.Kalaloch

Kalaloch Campground is just north of the lodge with access to the beach.  Campsites are nestled among a lush coastal forest.  There are 168 dry camping spots to choose from each equipped with a picnic table and fire ring.  A dump station is located at the campground for your convenience for a $5 fee.  You can make your reservations for the campground at Recreation.gov.  Be sure to reserve early.  Sites, especially with beach views, are reserved quickly.  Several walks surround Kalaloch including The Kalaloch Creek Nature Trail, which is a mile long trail along Kalaloch Creek though the forest.
