Amanda Park is a census designated place on the Olympic Peninsula in Grays Harbor County, Washington, United States,[2] along U.S. Route 101. Olympic National Park and Lake Quinault are directly to the north. As of the 2010 census the population was 252.[1]

Geography[edit]

The community is near the northern border of Grays County, on the Quinault River at the outlet of Lake Quinault. It is in the northeast corner of the Quinault Indian Nation. U.S. 101 passes through the center of the community, leading northwest 25 miles (40 km) to Queets on the Pacific coast and south 43 miles (69 km) to Aberdeen. The Quinault Valley entrance to Olympic National Park is accessible from North Shore Road, which leaves US 101 at the northern edge of the CDP.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Amanda Park CDP has a total area of 8.5 square miles (22.0 km2), of which 8.2 square miles (21.3 km2) are land and 0.3 square miles (0.7 km2), or 3.24%, are water.[1]

Climate[edit]

With an average annual precipitation of 129.28 inches (3,284 mm), Amanda Park is one of the rainiest locations in Washington state. Despite heavy annual precipitation due to strong influence from the nearby Pacific, Amanda Park's climate still has a significant drying trend in July to classify it as a warm-summer Mediterranean climate (Köppen Csb).
