  • Even off season this is a beautiful place to hike, shoot pictures & stroll the beach! During a storm you may catch a rainbow reflecting off the lake stunning. The lodge is fun to walk around & enjoy:)  more »
  • This is the most beautiful lake I have ever seen! We drove around it on 101 and it was just breathtaking. It was so calm and the surface was like glass. We stopped to take some pictures so amazing!  more »

  • When we contemplated moving out to the Olympic Peninsula, my husband was excited and he couldn't wait. I, on the other hand, was a bit apprehensive, so my husband suggested making a weekend trip out to the Peninsula. On our drive from Port Angeles to La Push, we stopped at one of the turnouts/lookouts at this lake. I can truly say, it was at THIS lake that I started falling in love with the Peninsula. The sheer beauty of this lake could make you weep.
  • The best place. It's so relaxing! I have to go here everytime I come to Washington!
