  • Very nice visitor center, friendly staffs. Large bathrooms outside the visitor center building, adjacent to the parking lot. Plenty of parking at least during an end of March visit. It's easy to find from Port Angeles, off highway 101. There are a few exhibits in the visitor center - roosevelt elk, cougar, whale hunting boat, and skulls of various animals. The road to hurricane ridge is drivable at this time, but we did not attempt as it's probably still mostly snow covered at the top.
  • Contains a nice little info center with several things for the kids to see and do. The ranger was extremely friendly and helpful as well. There are 2 or 3 hikes of varying length that begin from the visitor center, including a half mile hike with just the right amount of distance and adventure for Families with kids (5 and up).
