Special Concerns

Leave No Trace: Please Leave No Trace of your stay to help protect park resources and to prevent further camping regulations. Camp in designated sites or on the beach above the high tide line. Avoid revegetation sites at Sand Point.

Fires: Fires are not allowed between the headlands north of Yellow Banks and the headlands at Wedding Rocks..

Wildlife Precautions: Save the Bears! Please learn how to properly secure your food to protect bears and yourself. Use "bear wires" to hang unattended food. Where not available, hang food 12 feet above ground, 10 feet from the tree trunk. Always carry 75 to 100 feet of lightweight rope. Do not feed any wild animals! Food must be stored in a hard-sided container on the entire Olympic Coast. Containers may be rented at the Lost Resort near Ozette or at the 3-Rivers Resort near Mora.

Safety: Boardwalk trails are very slippery when wet. Headland trails, marked by orange and black targets, bypass areas that are impassable due to terrain or high tides. Some trails require climbing rope ladders which can be hazardous. Be wary of loose rocks that can fall from above. Rocks and logs can be slippery and can tip or roll. Always hike with a tide chart.
