Lake-Quinault is located on the southern edge of Olympic National Park in western Washington. Lake Quinault is owned by the Quinault Indian Nation and is accessible from U.S. Route 101. It is part of the glacially-carved Quinault Valley known as the "Valley of the Giants." One of the most dominate features of this magnificent area is the Quinault Rain Forest, which is a temperate rain forest. Lake Quinault is surrounded by mossy old-growth trees of the rain forest and a 30-mile scenic loop takes you around the lake. The north shore road begins on US Highway-101 at milepost 125 on Washington's Pacific Coast. The Lake Quinault/Olympic Peninsula is one of those places where you can see old growth forest and trees more than eight feet in diameter right from your car. Here you will find the largest Sitka Spruce tree in the world along with other towering giants. Other activities in the area include fishing (with a permit from the Quinaults) camping, swimming, boating and hiking. The southern side of the lake features a system of short trails maintained by the National Forest Service that are accessible to casual day hikers. The southern side is also home to the historic Lake Quinault Lodge and the Rain Forest Resort Village. The north side of the lake is bordered mainly by private homes and some small resorts located in Olympic National Park.

Lake Quinault Weather & Climate

Northwest Washington, near Olympic National Park, ,is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the east by the Hood Canal and on the north by the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the Olympic Peninsula is anchored by the Olympic Mountains. The region is divided into three basic regions: the Pacific coastline, the Olympic Mountains and the temperate rainforest. No other place in the United States can match its diversity in terrain and weather in such a compact geographic area. Therefore, weather in this region is very difficult to define. The coastal areas have mild weather year round with low coastal fog. Mount Olympus receives a large amount of snow. The rainforest receives annual precipitation of about 150 inches, making this the wettest area in the continental U.S. (the island of Kauai in the state of Hawaii gets more rain.)
