Growing up in the Midwest, I always thought of Olympic National Park as one of those places that “one day” I’ll get to experience. That day arrived…
There was just one problem – we only had two weeks to stay in this scenic paradise and there were too many great areas to explore! If this isn’t on your RV bucket list, you’d better add it.
One thing to keep in mind is Olympic National Park is HUGE. We set up our base camp at the Elwha Dam RV Park. It’s perfectly located to take day trips and hit all the great spots, but also is close enough to Seattle so that you can visit the big city as well.
It seems fitting that the first place to visit is First Beach. It’s located in La Push. My wife warned me that I need to watch out for vampires as this is where they filmed the hit film series “Twilight.”
There are sea-stacks all around this beautiful beach as well as a lot of driftwood to sift through in search of unique pieces of wood. Because all of these beaches are far from the big cities, there are not a lot of people and you can easily find spots where you have it all to yourself.
