Olympic National Park Lodging
Olympic National Park Lodging is right outside the park entrance here at our Port Angeles Bed & Breakfast Inn.
Olympic National Park is located in Washington state on the Olympic Peninsula. The park is divided into four basic regions: The Pacific coastline, alpine areas, the west end temperate rainforest and the forests of the drier east side. President Theodore Roosevelt originally crated Mount Olympus National Monument in 1909 and after Congress voted to authorize a re-designation to National Park status, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the legislation in 1938. In 1976, Olympic National Park became an International Biosphere Reserve, and in 1981 it was designated a World Heritage Site.
There are several roads in the park, but none penetrate far into the interior. The park features a network of hiking trails, although the size and remoteness means that it will usually take more than a weekend to get to the high country in the interior. The sights of the rain forest, with plants run riot and dozens of hues of green, are well worth the possibility of rain sometime during the trip, although months of July, August and September frequently have long dry spells.
