Hoodsport serves as a good base, where visitors can return for a hot meal and good night's sleep after exploring the Skokomish River at Staircase; picnicking, fishing and swimming at Lake Cushman; trekking on the National Park trails; or scrambling to the top of Mt. Ellinor for views of Hood Canal and the Cascades in the distance.
