Olympic National Forest

Welcome to a diverse and stunning world--a fog-shrouded coast with booming surf and wave-manicured beaches, spectacular alpine country dotted with sparkling lakes, lush meadows, glaciers, and North America's finest temperate rain forest.

The forest is over 632,000 acres in size.

In 1897 President Grover Cleveland created the Olympic Forest Reserve, a portion of which President Theodore Roosevelt designated a national monument in 1909. In 1938 President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed legislation creating Olympic National Park, a place for the soul to expand and for the mind to be refreshed with the beauty of life--a place of serendipitous discovery.
