Beach Trail Closure Advisory

Access to Kalaloch Beach is temporarily closed as winter storms bring high surf, storm surges and high winds along with beach and trail erosion.

Please be advised that while our beach access may be temporarily closed, access to Kalaloch Lodge will not be impacted, and there has never been a better time to settle in to one of our cozy cabins for some Grade-A quality storm watching!
