Olympic Transportation

Olympic National Park is located on the Olympic Peninsula in northern Washington, near Seattle and Tacoma. Transportation is mainly done by car, though limited public transport is available. Private companies can fill in the gaps. When driving to Olympic, be aware of seasonal road closures and check your route beforehand.

Please note that GPS units do not always provide accurate directions to or within Olympic. Yosemite covers over 1,400 square miles. We do not recommend using GPS units for directions in and around Olympic. If you do use a GPS unit, keep in mind that if there’s a conflict between what the road sign says and what your GPS unit says, the road sign is almost always correct (and your GPS unit isn’t).
