Quilcene and Brinnon

These two delightful Hood Canal small towns just minutes apart are nestled in the scenic area of Highway 101 that hugs the shore of the great fjord called Hood Canal at the eastern edge of the Olympic National Forest.

Quilcene and Brinnon offer great places to stay, deep water marinas, three major rivers, clam and oyster beaches. There are camping venues in the forest and along the beach. Bring your kayaks and boats, scuba and fishing gear! Fun dining and shopping, too!

Take in Shrimpfest, Quilcene Fair, and visit a world-renowned rhododendron nursery, a major oyster farm and historic museum. There are two Visitor's Centers with detailed maps and up-to-date information about the Olympic National Forest and Olympic National Park in Quilcene.

This is THE eastern access to these amazing natural places, abundant with amazing scenery and all levels of hiking trails that can lead you through the entire Park for a week of trekking, or a short round-trip with a picnic. Falls View Park and waterfall, the Wildlife Viewing PlatformMount Walker viewpoint and many other pleasant scenic outings are all within a few minutes' drive of either community.
