Beautiful river

I found out about this through the chamber of commerce and Trip Advisor. It's a beautiful river and well worth looking for.

The river is a rather short river as it flows through the Quillayute Indian Reservation. The river itself is made up of 3 larger rivers that flow out of the Olympic Mtns that meet together to form it.

The Quillayute river meanders through the area and depending upon side roads that you might be on, you can cross it in many locations. We stopped to take some pictures at a couple of spots and was well worth it.

The Quillayute River is actually quite short, only about 5 miles (8k) long, starting at the confluence of the Bogachiel and Sol Duc Rivers and flowing west where it empties into the Pacific at La Push and creates a small harbor there. The river is easily accessed at the harbor front in La Push as well as at the Quillayute... More

loved every minute of the float down the river and catching Salmon was a bonus! The river is very calming and the views of the wildlife are amazing.

The environment and the nature of the river remains a special place. The rainforest meets the ocean via this river. The ecosystem is one of the unique temperate rainforest in the world... lush and green, foggy and misty. Well before movie makers came here, this peaceful river shared tales of the natives who lived along side the natural setting. History... More

The Quillayute River passes through the sliver of coastal Olympic NP and reaches the ocean at La Push. You can see it from several viewpoints along the road out to Rialto Beach, and also from the town of La Push. We thought it was a lovely smooth flowing river. In summer, I'm sure that people kayak and canoe on the... More

We stayed at the Quillayute Lodge right on the Quillayute River. It was the most beautiful setting. Birds were abundant and ocasionally an eagel would fly by. Beautiful flowers line the shore and in the morning a mist was around the river. It was absolutely gorgeous.

I make many trips out to La Push and we frequently go swimming at the Leyendecker boat launch, near by the Three Rivers Store. The scenes are breathtaking on a clear sunny day and the water is crisp and cold. I definitely recommend it as a pit stop or a place to camp!
