Nestled in the foothills of the southeastern Olympic Mountain Range, set perfectly between the snowcapped peaks and the Hood Canal, Lake Cushman is waiting for your camping adventures. From the shores of Hood Canal at Potlatch State Park, to the wilderness of Olympic National Park, and everything in between, the perfect weekend getaway is ready to be explored. With 100 miles of trails waiting to be hiked, 23 miles of shoreline eagerly awaiting swimmers and boaters and views that will leave you speechless, Lake Cushman needs to be your next camping destination.
What makes Lake Cushman an amazing place is the wide variety of activities one can have while staying at one of the hundreds of campsites around the lake, in the wild and along Hood Canal. Hood Canal is an amazing place to pull up crab pots, scuba dive, get oysters, fish, catch shrimp, and kayak, all mere miles from a handful of campgrounds.
For freshwater lovers, the lake itself is quite popular for boaters, kayakers and swimmers, with the latter typically congregating on a huge rock near the entrance to Olympic National Park. With stunning views, great restaurants, countless activities and a lifetime of memories to make, Lake Cushman needs to be your next camping destination.
