According to Parratt’s research, thousands of guest from across the U.S. and Europe — 10,000 in one year alone — flocked to the resort to relax in its sanatorium and bathhouses and soak in water that warms up to 130-140 degrees. “It was widely believed that the waters were good treatment for everything from rheumatism to anemia and from ulcers to blood disorders,” Parratt wrote. On May 26, 1926, however, sparks from a defective flue set off a fire to the shingle roof of the resort and, since the summer season had not yet opened the water was turned off. With staff members unable to douse the flames, strong winds helped reduce the resort to ashes. Today, the resort is operated on a smaller scale by private concessionaires under contract with the National Park Service, alongside the Sol Duc campground that features 82 camping sites. The pools, however, closed on Oct. 29, for the winter and early spring months.
One of the most beautiful views of Sol Duc Falls can be seen as you walk across the bridge. Use caution, as it might be slippery on any given day.
