One of the best ways to experience America’s natural beauty is to hike and camp in the great outdoors. Washington’s Olympic National Park has some of the most spectacular scenery in the country, with a gorgeous temperate rainforest, stunning mountains, and 70 miles of rugged coastline. The park is home to Shi Shi Beach – a majestic coastal beach that features stunning rock formations, pretty tide pools and camping, but you’ll need to backpack in to witness this rugged beauty.

To camp overnight on Shi Shi Beach, you’ll need a Makah Recreation Pass and a wilderness camping permit. Get more information on Olympic National Park’s website.
