A little bit of everything

Summary: Salt Creek Recreation Area is definitely a "go-to" destination for your trip to the Olympic Peninsula. Salt Creek has beautiful campsites scattered throughout the forest and along the coastline with scenic nature trails connecting throughout the park. There are staircases that lead you down to the coastline bluffs, which display colorful tide pools during low tide and they showcase quite the wave-crashing display during high tide. Salt Creek features RV sites, a large playground area, big open fields, picnic tables, a beautiful coastline hike along the bluffs, and even historic World War II bunkers.

Salt Creek Beach, adjacent to the park, is one of the most popular beaches on the Olympic Peninsula as its warm shallow low tides provide a huge sandy football-field-sized outdoor adventure area. Here you'll see a combination of surfing, paddle boarding, skimboarding, swimming, frisbees flying, and of course, simple relaxation. Final piece of advice: you must experience at least one Salt Creek sunset.
