Where Should I Stay in Olympic National Park?
It really depends on which area you’d like to spend the most time in. We stayed at Lake Sutherland and truly felt like it was the perfect location.
Olympic National Park is spread out quite a bit, with highway 101 going around most of the north and west side.
To the north, you’ll find Lake Crescent and the Sol Duc area (hot springs, waterfalls), and Hurricane Ridge.
On the western side you’ll find the gorgeous Pacific beaches like Ruby Beach, Rialto Beach, First Beach, Second Beach, Hoh Rainforest, Lake Quinault, and the town of Forks. The western side is really where the majority of family-friendly hikes are.
To the east, you can hike the Staircase Hike and visit Lake Cushman.
So while there are many different areas of the park (and it’s a bit of a drive between each), you really can find great hikes, waterfalls, and more no matter where you stay.
But as I said, we loved staying at Lake Sutherland on the northern side. This gave us quick(er) access to many of the fun attractions. We loved taking kids to Olympic National Park.
Wherever you choose to stay, there are some really cool cabins near Olympic National Park in each section. Find the perfect one and start your adventure.
Olympic National Park Cabins- North Side
Unplugged Cozy Affordable Cabin

This cabin is beautiful, clean, everything you need and nothing you don’t.
It’s located on the northeast side of Olympic National Park, on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, meaning you get incredible water views from this cabin.
Inside, you’ll get 2 bedrooms with multiple beds, plus a sleeper sofa in the living room.
Outdoors, you can walk right to the beach, take in the views, or hang out at the fire pit and picnic table.
Get away and get unplugged, as there’s no internet and cell service is spotty. Which may be exactly what your family is looking for.

The main cabin has the living area and kitchen, whereas the second cabin has 2 bedrooms with a total of 3 queen beds. There are no bathrooms in the second cabin, but it’s just a quick walk to the main cabin.

Lake Sutherland Vacation Rental Cabins
When we visited Olympic National Park, we stayed in a Lake Sutherland vacation rental. Being able to go on the water everyday, or at least have incredible views of the lake while enjoying breakfast was incredible. And I caught one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen.
Lake Sutherland is not quite in the park, but it’s also not far at all. It’s much closer than having to drive from Port Angeles.
If you want the perfect place to stay, check out these Lake Sutherland vacation rentals.
Here is the Lake Sutherland rental home we stayed at, plus a few others.
Lake Sutherland A Frame
- 2 Bedroom, 1 bathroom
- Sleeps up to 6
- Starting at $155/night
I really cannot recommend this Lake Sutherland vacation rental enough! We had the perfect stay here and would absolutely stay here again.
Upstairs you’ll get a master bedroom plus a bedroom with two beds (on the floor, so not for adults with mobility issues). That slept our whole family of 6.
Downstairs, you’ll have a full kitchen and a cozy living room, all with windows that overlook Lake Sutherland.
But the best part of this rental was the huge, gorgeous deck that sat above the water. The views and relaxation here were incredible.
We also loved taking the kayaks out in the morning (life vests provided as well).
If you have younger kids or even older kids that don’t mind a smaller sleeping quarters, this rental is perfect. It’s so affordable and gives you all the lake/cabin feels you are looking for.

Lake Sutherland Rustic
- 3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms
- Sleeps 6
- From $200/night
This unique cabin on Lake Sutherland has plenty of space for everyone. Built in the 1950’s, the cabin features cedar all around, beamed ceilings, and a lake for a backyard. The deck is massive, giving plenty of room to hang out outside.
Inside, you’ll have two bedrooms and a living area with a pull out sofa. But where is the 3rd bedroom?
It’s actually in the “treehouse” section of the house. It’s not really a treehouse like you might be thinking, but rather an unattached addition to the home. While the main home has a full bathroom, the treehouse has its own half-bath.
This cabin is a great place to unplug and connect with each other, as there is no wifi.
Past guests loved taking the kayaks out on the lake, the helpfulness of the owners, and jumping in the lake from the diving board!
*Note that it may not be best for anyone with mobility issues as it is a steep grade to access the home.
