Olympic National Park, WA

A weekend camping at Lake Crescent & exploring the Olympic National Park

We spent a wonderful and goofy three days camping at Lake Crescent (or is it Crescent Lake…) in the Olympic National Park celebrating our dear friends’ 5th Anniversary. 

Where we Stayed:  

Log Cabin Resort: The grounds are right on the lake and include cabins, RV sites and tent camping as well as a restaurant, deli, boat rentals, lawn games and a little general store. The tent camp sites were tiny and close together but worth it to be so close to the lake. 

We were planning on staying at Fairholme Campground on the other side of the lake but there were road closures that prevented us from getting there (without a +1.5 hr drive).  So we ended up at Log Cabin Resort and it was perfect. 

What we did:  

  • Hurricane Ridge Trail – You can walk out to Sunrise Point to enjoy the views or opt for a longer hike along the ridge on Mount Angeles Trail (~5 mi out/back). 
  • Devil’s Punchbowl  – Stroll about a mile down the Spruce Railroad Trail to get to the Devil’s Punchbowl. Great for cliff jumping, swimming or just enjoying the views. 
  • Swimming in Lake Crescent – everyone deserve to jump into water this clear. 

What we wanted to do but ran out of time:
