Olympic National Forest

Olympic National Forest covers over 633,000 acres and is made up of two ranger districts: the Hood Canal and the Pacific. It offers a wide range of recreation, including hiking, camping, backpacking, picnicking, boating and other outdoor activities. It operates 17 campgrounds that are on a first-come, first-served basis and have varying overnight fees. There are five designated Wilderness Areas. These do no require wilderness permits, but a Northwest Forest Pass is required for all vehicles parked at many ONF trailheads.
