Kalaloch is known for its wide sandy beach. The Kalaloch area has two campgrounds, a concession-operated lodge, a ranger station (open daily in summer only) with exhibits and information desk, a picnic area, self-guided nature trails. The Quinault Indians first called this coastal land “Kalaloch” or “good place to land.” Their ancient and native culture, still a strong presence here, thrived across the vibrant trio of protected sub-alpine, forest and coastal ecosystems that today comprise majestic Olympic National Park and its nearly one million acres. Here, the Pacific Ocean breaks upon miles of driftwood-lined beaches. The soaring evergreen forest rises just beyond the sand.
