At the Ohanapecosh visitor center we visited it and walked around for a quick sec. The ranger there was very knowledgable and there was tons of history on the location and the park itself. There we hiked the Silver falls trail to silver falls. It's pretty nice and a short hike along a dirt path. Along the way there is... 更多
City people need better signs. I loved the path but It was not well signed posted. Not sure if I saw the hot springs or not. I saw water but not sure they were the hot springs. The visitor center is inside the entrance to the campground . This visitor center is only open summer. We saw 2 little kids... 更多

A lovely campground but basic. We were travelling in an RV. The camp sites do not offer any facilities. There are communal showers and toilets, all clean & tidy. All sites are well treed, have a firebox and bench table. Some overlook the river. Access to some good walking trails.
Perfect for pull-up camping with plenty of options to explore around. We were here during the summer and it was a beautiful trip. The facilities are clean, plenty of things to explore.

This visitor center is only open between June and early October with very limited hours; the main purpose... 更多
This is a nice visitor center to pair with the silver falls hike that is accessed here. Lots of information on the local wildlife and flora. Our daughter really got a kick out of it.
