Hikes starting here

This is the trailhead for trails to Sand Point and Cape Alava.

There is a parking area big enough for about 100 cars. Summer weekends the parking area will be full. There is a kiosk where you can pay the $25 for 7 day National Park fee. There are envelopes and a slot to put the fee in.

There is one trail, south, out of the parking area. The trail immediately goes by the ranger station where you can pay the $5 plus $2 per day per person camping fee if you're camping. There are envelopes and a slot to put the fee in.

Then the trail crosses the outlet stream from Ozette Lake, and then there's a junction for the Sand Point and Cape Alava trails.

There is a campground with 15 sites before the parking area. There's a resort with cabins, camping, and a small store before that. These will probably be full summer weekends.
