Submitted by Forest Service Pacific Northwest Region  Olympic National Forest

To align with Governor Inslee’s Executive Order directing people to stay home to save lives, effective March 27, 2020, all Olympic National Forest developed recreation sites will be closed through April 8, 2020; or until, such measures are lifted.

Recreation closures include trailheads, day use areas, campsites, cabins and picnic sites. Reservations cannot be made at this time.  Existing reservation holders will be notified via email and/or cell phone text messages, if there are any changes affecting their reservation.  Refunds will be issued for cancelled reservations.

Olympic National Forest officials urge people to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and avoid putting undue pressure on medical and law enforcement services; so that, everyone can return to outdoor adventures as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.  These closures are based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. 

The latest updates and information can be found  online at https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/olympic/home.  Forest Service offices are currently providing virtual services and staff are available to answer questions by phone or email, during business hours  which can be found here.
