Winter at Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park

On November 21st, 2013, the Olympic National Park released their annual winter press release. While the document is long and not exactly the warmest reading material, we summarize it for you, keeping you in the loop of what you need to know. As of right now, a few campgrounds and resorts are open. However, the National Park Service is only funded through January 15th, so another closure of the parks could occur.

This year will yet again see Hurricane Ridge open part-time and many campgrounds closed. Lodges will be closing soon and numerous visitor centers will be shutdown until March.
