we are travelling from Portland to Olympic NP next weekend( labor day weekend)and planning to spend 2 days in NP and planning to get camping experience at Forks. 2 days are not sufficient to explore Olympic NP but we don't have much in hand. so have come up with following plan. needs experts suggestions.
1. on Saturday early morning start from portland. 5 hr drive to port angels.( 2-3 drivers) have lunch and head to Hurricane hills and drive near hurricane ridge. in the evening visit sol duc water fall, on the way back lake crescent. and have dinner in Port angels and drive to Forks. I would like to know drive route from port angels to Forks. Can we cover these 3 places in 1 day? If we have to choose between sol duc and lake crescent which one we shall choose?
2. In fork, we are planning to stay in private campground at leyendecker rd forks wa 98331. this looks like new private campground, recently listed on VRBO site. so any idea about the camping experience? so far we have been to state park or national park camping site but never experience private campground. so suggestions/tip
3. on Sunday morning head to Hoh rain forst. ( 1 hr drive-40 miles). afternoon come back to forks. have lunch and then drive to cape flattery and shi shi beach. evening view sunset at Rialto beach ( 30 minutes from camp-ground).
4. On Monday drive to Seattle. 3 hrs drive. visit space needle and glass museum and drive back to portland. how is scenario of traffic in seattle city near to space needle on labor day? can we visit Mt. Rainier and have glimpse of wildflowers in this time period?
Thank you for your time.
