Fairholm Campground to Kalaloch Campground Professional Review and Guide

"From the clear blue waters of Lake Crescent, the Peninsula Route heads south to the popular ocean shores of the Kalaloch Beach unit of Olympic National Park. The route follows US 101, heading south through stump-covered clear-cut forests and stump-covered pastures to the town of Forks.

Beyond town, the terrain becomes increasingly hilly and the countryside increasingly forested as the road winds its way out to the coast. Shoulders are mostly good in this section, disappearing at bridges. With only an occasional view of the mountains over massive clearcuts to distract you, the miles fly by. The Kalaloch area beaches are easily accessed from the main highway. Ruby Beach has a couple of large sea stacks and is most like the wilderness beaches of the north sections of the park. Fourth Beach has excellent tide pools on the near-shore rocks and is the scene of daily naturalist talks. Kalaloch and South Beaches are great for barefoot strolls through the sand."
