Lake Quinault Tourism
Located on the Olympic Peninsula of western Washington State, Lake Quinault sits among old growth tree groves ideal for hiking and camping. Traveling during the summer season offers activities both on and around the lake site, including boating and fishing.

Natural Features

Watch for birds like ospreys and eagles, or hike under Western Hemlock and Coastal Douglas Fir trees. Bring a poncho--it rains 400 inches annually on Lake Quinault.


Mushroom Festival

Attend the annual Mushroom Festival in October with guided walks, cooking classes and seminars about the local fungi.

Annual Bike Ride

Compete in the annual Quinault Rain Forest bike ride in Amanda Park. Ride a 30-mile roadway course benefiting the Quinault Cancer Fund.

Water Activities

Rent a canoe, rowboat or kayak during the boating season between June and September to explore the lake carved from a glacier.


Take a guided fishing trip along Olympic Peninsula rivers to find salmon, trout and steelhead fish, or embark on your own with the required permits.
