Communities and Ports

Clallam County encompasses the northwestern point of the contiguous United States.

Home to 3 cities, a deepwater port, 1738 square miles of land, and 932 square miles of water, Clallam county is more than just vast rugged nature, it is a community.

Within our community, four federally recognized Tribal Nations share their culture and diversity amongst the rivers and valleys leading from the mountains to the sea.

And speaking of mountains, the Olympic National Park is our county’s backyard! From Lake Crescent to Hurricane Ridge, and maybe a trip out to Salt Creek, your friends will talk about their visit for years to come.

With economic possibilities, educational opportunities, social amenities, and the ability to live like a hermit if you so choose, Clallam county has something unique to offer; the nostalgia of yesterday meeting with the forward thinkers of today.


The floodplains of the Dungeness River created the valley of fertile soils and focus on agriculture that Sequim still boasts today.

With acclaimed walking trails such as a visit to the Dungeness Lighthouse by hiking what the locals refer to as “The Spit”, and finish your day by delving into the world renowned Dungeness Crab, served at one of many fine dining establishments.
