Ozette Lake

June 15-17, 2019

Come explore the largest unaltered lake in Washington: Ozette Lake. Located on the Olympic Peninsula close to the ocean, Ozette provides visitors with numerous recreation activities from coastal and forest hikes to camping at remote sites only accessible by boat.

This is a three-day trip. On day 1 we'll paddle from the Ozette Lake Ranger Station to Erickson Bay and set up camp. Options for the following day’s activities include a beach hike or a paddle south to explore Garden and Tivolli Islands. Day three will include a slow role out of camp with hopes to be home by dinner.

Ozette Lake is big and cold, so immersion and all the normal safety gear are required. Paddlers must be self-sufficient with proper camping supplies, food, water and extra clothes for three days. Hazards may include cold water and afternoon wind, black bear, raccoon, cougar, and mosquitoes. Still, Ozette is a uniquely beautiful lake that you'll be glad you explored!
