Get to know Elma (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Elma.

Located in Washington, Elma is a small town in the Grays Harbor County. It is known for the attractions in it and the rainy weather that prevails for most of the year. In fact, Elma gets up to 73 inches of rain a year, which is almost twice the national average. If you are traveling here, be sure to borrow an umbrella from your hostel before stepping out to explore the city.

While in Elma, check out the Schafer State Park nearby. It is a seasonal park that is great for a picnic or a BBQ while outside. Try not to visit when you are faced with a rainy day, as it can get muddy quite quickly. The river is located close to it, and on a sunny day, the park is a good place to unwind. If it is to be a rainy day, though, you would be better off staying in your hostel.

Another great place to visit near Elma is the Great Wolf Lodge theme and water park. It is highly rated among the local and tourist population, and it is great for adults and kids alike. The park is very well maintained and has nearby shops where you can buy flipflops, swimming equipment, and more in case you left these back at your hostel.

For an opportunity to get in touch with nature, go take a walk in the Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve, where you can unwind in the open spaces and hike up and around the large natural mounds. It is very quiet and peaceful, and it is, therefore, highly recommended as an escape from the city.

Finally, there is the Olympic National Rainforest near Elma. It is a gorgeous reserve and is full of sights and sounds, including the ruby beach. This beach is known for its reddish glow during sunset and the nearby campsites. You can also explore the woods and area around Lake Crescent, a clear freshwater lake that is good for boating, swimming, and enjoying the scenery.
