Olympic National Park Lodging and Restaurants. Stay comfortably in Olympic National Park and dine well at these five Olympic National Park hotels with restaurants.
You can also stay in hotels in the towns, both large and small, that border the Olympic National Park, of course.
But depending on your schedule and the season, why not stay IN the Olympic National Park (ONP) in historic Olympic National Park lodging?
Some of the five lodges were built in the early 1900's, and each of them is a rustic representation of the Olympic Peninsula's early history.
Each of these Olympic National Park lodges also offers an on-site restaurant. All your needs will be covered.

Log Cabin Resort
3183 East Beach Road, Olympic National Park, WA 98363
Closed in Winter. Check website below for exact dates.
If you need seclusion and tranquility, you'll love the Log Cabin Resort.
The original Log Cabin Hotel was built in 1895 and was a popular vacation spot until it burned down in 1932. It was subsequently rebuilt in the 1950's and renamed Log Cabin Resort; it is now a family-oriented lodge on the north shore of Lake Crescent.
This Olympic National Park lodging facility offers rooms in the lodge itself, A-frame chalets, camper cabins, an RV park and tent sites.
Lake Quinault Lodge
345 South Shore Road, Quinault, WA 98575
Hours: Open year round.
Lake Quinault Lodge was featured in the 2008 PBS program, "Great Lodges of the National Parks." Built in 1926 with all the charm of that era, it was graced with a visit from Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937.
A massive stone fireplace is central to the large community room and its comfortable furniture. In a cool and possibly rainy environment - this is a rain forest after all - the beautiful and gracious space is a fabulous place to relax with a drink, letting the warmth of the fire and ambiance revitalize the heart, soul and body.
See here for more details and photos of the iconic Lake Quinault Lodge and the lake.
Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort
Sol Duc Road, Olympic National Park, WA 98363
Open end of March through mid-October; check website below for exact dates.
More details about Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort here. The resort is situated in a valley along the Sol Duc River. Pronounced Sole-Duck, the name in the Quilleute language is said to mean, "sparkling water" or "magic waters." And people come not only for the serene and quiet beauty of surrounding trees but also for this resort's mineral hot springs.
Choose one of the 32 cabins or the riverside suite, or bring your RV. Take a dip in the hot springs, and follow up with a massage. With or without a long hike, this might be just what the doctor ordered.
There are no televisions, telephones or radios to distract from the serenity. But your nod to civilization includes a poolside deli, espresso bar, a gift shop and a convenience store.
157151 Highway 101, Forks, WA 98331
Hours: Open year round.
"Kalaloch" is a Quinault word meaning "good place to land," and we think you'll agree after you've landed here yourself.
Get yourself a room in the lodge itself, or opt for a delightful cliffside cabin with wood-burning stove (wood included), which is what we did. The cabin had the ability to sleep 6. Plus, it had a sitting area, wood-burning stove, dining area, and a very adequate kitchen, not to mention restroom and shower in the cabin.
Olympic National Park lodging might be the perfect solution for your own visit to the Olympic Peninsula!
