Area Information
Trip Planning

Trip Planning

Weather in the Olympic Peninsula is variable and unpredictable, no matter the time of year. Different weather conditions exist within the region at the same time. Even in the summer, temperatures may vary from 10-20 degrees, especially along the coast and in higher elevations. Summer will be driest, with fall and spring varying between bluebird days and all-out rain. Winter sees the most precipitation by far.

The western portion experiences much higher levels of precipitation than eastern locations, creating a rain shadow effect. Along the coast and western-facing valleys, typical annual precipitation ranges from 100-170 inches of rain, hence the existence of lush temperate rainforests, such as the Hoh and Quinault. Massive amounts of snow befall the Olympic Mountains; for example, Hurricane Ridge traditionally records 30-35 feet of snow a year.

The eastern slope, meanwhile, is characterized by dryer lowland forests. Precipitation still occurs, but to a much lower degree. Port Angeles, home of the Olympic National Park Headquarters, only averages 25-30 inches a year. 

Bring layers, think “waterproof”, and be prepared for a variety of conditions!

Testimonials
Renting a campervan to explore the Olympic Peninsula coast was a lot of fun! And, PacWesty was great at providing advice, transportation, and equipment to make our weekend great. Thanks - we will be back....

What do you do when you want to take a road trip to discover and camp the Pacific Northwest but don't want the hassle of gathering and hauling all your camping equipment from San Diego? You rent a campervan from PacWesty of course! It was honestly the easiest "camping trip" we've done. BECAUSE the van comes complete with everything you might need (seriously). In addition to all of the convenience above, the PacWesty service and the folks are awesome.
