Great stop. We enjoyed this corner of WA. Long twisty drive to get here as it is out of the way but so worth the trip. Don't miss the museum. These are kind people and deserve our respect. Glad we went there.

Hiked the Cape Flattery Trail near Neah Bay. Well maintained, fairly steep, rewarded with Pacific Ocean views and rocky cliffs.. Also stopped for a cappuccino milkshake at the local coffee truck, which was excellent!

We've been to the Makah Indian Reservation for two vacations, and we really love it there. The reservation itself may appear run down and questionable, but you have never met nicer people, and the reservation really has a lot to offer- beautiful scenery, great beaches,...More

A very nice drive to this place, the museum is a must see. realize it is a leisurely drive as the road hugs the coast and winds its way around outcroppings.

This museum has tons of information about the Makah. It is well done and complete. The views from the cliffs are amazing and well worth the hike out to the point.

Neah Bay is the end of the road in these parts. There is a grocery store, restaurant and museum featuring the artifacts from the Ozette Dig. You can get your $10 parking pass almost everywhere. It is all about the beach and fishing out here....More
