When planning your visit, there are myriad options to camp within Olympic National Park. But what if you want a more luxe place to rest your head? Luckily, the park has several lodges that can accommodate singles, couples, families and large groups. Visitors can choose from rooms in historic hotels dating back to the early 1900s, modern motel-type accommodations or rustic cabins. Reservations are strongly encouraged. Rooms book up fast, especially in July and August. Visit olympicnationalparks.com/lodging for more information on the following lodges and resorts, or check out nps.gov/ olym/planyourvisit/lodging.htm.

The Kalaloch Lodge, also open year-round, is south of Forks and boasts stunning views of the Pacific. With a campground right next door, the site offers different overnight options in one place.
