Sunrise Resorts Dow Creek
Located in the midst of the Olympic National Park and Olympic National Forest, Sunrise Resort’s Dow Creek offers an opportunity to enjoy almost every kind of outdoor activity imaginable. Choose from the variety of on-site recreational amenities, hunting in the surrounding wooded area, or water sports on nearby Hood Canal and Lake Cushman.
With its location on the western arm of Puget Sound, Hoodsport is the ideal place to watch the clam, shrimp, and oyster harvesters bring in their catch, or try your own luck. A nice side trip might be to take a guided tour of the Hoodsport Winery and taste some of their fruit and a variety of grape wines.
An interesting day trip would be to go south on Highway 101 with a stop along the way at Shelton, the home of succulent oysters and Christmas trees. Every holiday season more than 3 million trees are harvested and shipped from the area in and around Shelton. If the logging industry is of interest to you, stop by the Chamber of Commerce office housed in an old caboose from a train used in the logging era, or look over “Tollie,” a 90-ton retired locomotive that is now located on Railroad Avenue. Don’t miss seeing the scale model of a logging camp and the logging, farming, and oystering exhibits at the Mason County Historical Museum.
To the southeast, from any of your destinations, the dominant sight in the Cascade Mountains will be the imposing Mount Rainier. Rising to 14,144 feet, with an eternal snow cover, it is the highest volcanic peak in the lower United States. The largest single glacier and glacier system anywhere outside of Alaska can be found on its slopes.
