Oysters And Clams right Here in the park

Rest A While RV Park is the Best Kept Secret on Hood Canal that has reasonable Waterfront and Cedar Grove RV Parking for family and friends all year round.

It’s summertime in the Olympic Peninsula! Sweet-smelling lavender kisses the hillsides, Olympic Mountain Ice Cream drips down our wrists, and we toss what’s left of the unexpired sunscreen into our bags as we head out to tromp through the best of Hood Canal's favorite places like Skokomish Park Lake Cushman to cool off when the temperature starts to rise! Then when we are getting hungry, we head to the closest restaurant to enjoy a Delicious Dinner at many places along the Hood Canal.

It’s undeniable that cascading waterfalls tucked into hidden nooks are simply and quintessentially Hood Canal. Though winter and early spring are optimal for peeping these rushing beauties, there's still plenty to see in the summertime.

As the rain falls, it keeps our hillsides the vibrant green that makes the Olympic Peninsula feel like home. This also means the waters rise, and the cascades fill in. So check the forecast, grab your best adventure buddies, and get to some of the most beautiful gems that Hood Canal has to offer like visiting Staircase Trail in the Olympic National Park.

Situated just north of Brinnon, Rocky Brook Falls remains one of the best easy-to-reach waterfalls on the Olympic Peninsula. After a 1986 micro hydro project was installed at the top of the falls, locals feared that the falls would run dry. Thanks to operators of the facility, the beautiful 229’ tall falls run year-round.
