Olympic National Park is Open

Olympic National Park is open 24 hours a day, year-round. The most popular months to visit are June through September. During the busy summer season, most roads and facilities are open and a full range of programs are available to enjoy. From October through May, some roads, campgrounds, and other visitor facilities are closed or have reduced hours. Visitor centers and Hurricane Ridge Road are closed Thanksgiving and Christmas. Other roads and facilities remain open, weather permitting. Check out the links below for more information.

All roads and facilities are subject to temporary closures due to weather and construction. Check current conditions for roads, campgrounds, and weather before your visit.
