Stop here before going anywhere in the Park. Up to date road conditions (road was closed the day we visited), plus lots of alternatives to view (or do) depending on your interest. Guide was very knowledgeable.

There's a small shopping center Forks Outfitters on the south side of Forks that might let you stay there. There's also an RV park the Forks 101 RV Park which is across 101 from the outfitters on a side street.
