About Kalaloch Lodge - DNC
There are few locales gifted with such diversity of geography and culture as Olympic National Park. Its western boundary – where Kalaloch Lodge uniquely sits – marks the edge of the contiguous United States, a wind-swept coastal sanctuary teeming with marine life.
The Employee Experience
Kalaloch Lodge is a great starting point to explore the many exciting areas of Olympic National Park and the Pacific Northwest. Hiking opportunities include miles of remote beaches, alpine areas with crystal clear lakes, and adventures through the temperate moss and fern drenched rainforest. Employees enjoy mushroom hunting and wildlife- spotting.
For those who enjoy an escape to the more iconic cities of the Pacific Northwest, weekend trips to Seattle or Portland are just the thing! And don’t forget your passports! Visiting beautiful Vancouver, B.C. is something that many employees enjoy. A scenic drive up the coast to Port Angels will bring you to the Coho Ferry which will take you across the Strait of Juan de Fuca and into the charming city of Victoria, B.C.

A rare bounty of marine life awaits right outside your door at Kalaloch Lodge, with gray whales and orcas sharing the water with otters, seven types of salmon, and seals. Local tide pools are filled with sea stars, periwinkles, and urchins. Seaweeds such as Sea Palms and Dead Man's Finger, add dimension to the rocky floor, and edible Nori (the wrap commonly used for sushi) sways with the current. Walking the beach, you can look out at the pounding surf and share stories of over 200 shipwrecks that have occurred off the Olympic Coast, as gulls and Bald Eagles wheel overhead and pelicans dive through the break. You may also encounter herds of Roosevelt Elk, deer, Black Bears or the elusive Mountain Lion while on the trail.
