During my trip to Olympic National Forest I stopped at Salt Creek and was surprised there were only 3 other cars in the entire park. The views were spectacular and the wild life abundant. I spent an hour or so but easily could have spend several days in the area. The restrooms at this facility were very clean with shower facilities. There were several camping spots available with some large enough for a full size RV. There are hiking trails, several picnic tables and fire rings.
The only issue that I ran into was taking a right out of Salt Creek and through Port Crescent which is privately owned area with signs on the beach front that say 'walk', 'beach comb', etc. but that is not for anyone that does not belong to the community. I stopped to take a picture and a property owner chased me down to tell me I was not allowed to stop on the road or take pictures from their private beach stating the owners were private people that did not like 'outsiders' in their back yard.
I mentioned better signage was in order to tell no one to stop. I got in my car to leave only to be followed by the resident in his truck until I was out of their community. I checked to see that Crescent Beach Road public thoroughfare. I am not sure if that is the typical interaction but I was surprised at the abrasiveness of the owner. I would not let a possible encounter with the owners at Port Crescent stop me from returning to Salt Creek to spend more time.
