We are a family of six with four children ages 16 to 23 visiting ONP.
I am trying to get a grasp of what to do and see.
We have three nights of tent camping and are coming from Portland on a Wednesday and need to be back to Astoria, WA on Saturday giving us 3 nights and 2 full days to explore.
I do not expect to see both sides of the park in this short of a trip. Where would make me want to come back more? East? West? North?
Any recommendations for campgrounds? On the west side Bogachiel campground looks good as it has showers and seems somewhat close to Forks (which sounds like it is somewhat central to the rain forest and the beach).
Is there anyplace to ride bicycles or is hiking the thing to do in ONP?
Any information/tips would be much appreciated.
When you look on Google maps ONP looks like an empty wasteland. After looking elsewhere I think we will be pleasantly surprised.
