Beach camping. Wildlife. Car accessible. Great surf.

La Push is an absolutely magical place to stay. Experience the tranquility and natural beauty of the rugged coastline of the mighty Pacific. It's a wonderful place to walk on the beach and take photos, especially of the offshore islands, enormous driftwood, and sunsets. Lots of resident seals, birds, and even whales.

Enjoy the surf and watch shorebirds, eagles and seals. First Beach is a mile-long crescent known for surfing-size waves and great whale watching, especially from February through April. The sound of crashing waves and an approaching winter storm provide the ideal natural soundtrack. First Beach is part of the 57 miles of wild coastline on the Olympic Peninsula, the longest such stretch outside of Alaska.

Definitely one place not to be missed!

Awesome Spot

Finally got to hit this place up earlier this summer. Totally unbelievable . The size of the trees alone in the rack line was insane. Awesome place and equally great pics!
