Both towns provide access to hiking trails of all levels and great camping. Trek through the park for a week, day-hike to a breathtaking location or take a short stroll with a picnic. Camp in the heart of either town, in the forest or along the beach. Quilcene and Brinnon are the gateway to sheltered, deep-water marinas, three major rivers, clam and oyster beaches, and great bird and wildlife viewing. Kayak, go boating, scuba dive, fish and swim. Attend a concert. Visit the Quilcene Historical Museum, ma- jor oyster farms and seven-acre Whitney Gardens, world-renowned as a rhododendron nursery.  Enjoy the 120-foot waterfall at Falls View Campground, Mount Walker viewpoints and Rocky Brook Falls, all just a few minutes’ drive from either community. Two Visitors Centers provide detailed maps and up-to-date information. One is in the Quilcene Forest Service Ranger Station and the other in the Brinnon Community Center.
