Forks and the wider Clallam County have now entered Phase 2 of Washington’s reopening plans.
At the Inn we have opened our common areas, with breakfast currently being available in the dining room (social distancing measures in place) or in guests’ bedrooms. After July 31, we are temporarily suspending our hot, sit-down breakfast offering. Instead, a to-go breakfast will be available to eat in your room or take with you for later in the day.
The beaches at Rialto, Mora, Ozette and Kalaloch (Beaches 1-6 and Ruby Beach) as well as Third Beach are open for day use. The Hoh rainforest, Sol Duc and Lake Crescent, Hurricane Ridge, Staircase and Heart O’ the Hills areas of the Olympic National Park; as well as the rainforest trails at Lake Quinault are also all open for day use. All Olympic National Forest Trails are also open.
Very few areas remain closed, but we are monitoring the status of the National Park’s reopening plans for the last few coastal areas – Second Beach at La Push and Shi Shi. Additionally Cape Flattery and Neah Bay are closed per Makah Tribal information, and First Beach in La Push is also closed per Quileute Tribal Council order until at least August 7th.
For our Twilight Fans, The Forever Twilight in Forks Collection will be opening again on September 4. They will be open Fridays and Saturdays from noon until 4PM, by appointment with the last entrance at 3:30PM. Please check with the Forks Chamber of Commerce at: www.forkswa.com for details.
For fishing, Olympic NP has opened Lake Crescent, Sol Duc River, Gray Wolf River, Dosewallips River, Duckabush River, North Fork Skokomish River, Kalaloch Creek, Cedar Creek, Mosquito Creek and mountain lakes as per normal fishing seasons and regulations.
Phase 2 allows restaurants to open at 50% capacity, retail at 30% and hairdressers / barbers / nail salons can also open.
Our aim throughout is to help keep guests, the staff team and our wider community as safe as possible.
