Getting Here and Getting Around

Seattle is the best destination for transportation to Aramark’s various properties at the park.

If you are traveling to Lake Crescent Lodge, Sol Duc Hot Springs, or Log Cabin Resort, there are a variety of bus and rail options. Our Olympic teams recommend traveling via the Dungeness Bus Line, Rocket Transportation, Straight Shot light rail, or local bus for those more versed in public transportation in the area. 

If you are traveling to Lake Quinault Lodge, there are bus and van options to get to the property after flying into Seattle. You can book a van ride from SeaTac Airport directly to Aberdeen or Quinault. Additionally, there is a Greyhound Bus that staff members can take from Seattle to Olympia. Once in Olympia, you’ll need to take two busses: take Grays Harbor Transit Bus #40 to the Hoquiam Station, then you’ll take Bus #60 from Hoquiam to Quinault. 

For Fun

The remote setting of the Olympic Peninsula offers a rare opportunity to explore and experience nature at its finest. Close by each property, you’ll find unbelievable hiking and biking trails, free boat rentals, and amazing scenery. 

During your time off, you can relax with hot springs or hiking the rainforests too! Our coastline, alpine areas, and forests have so much fun in store.
