    Purchase a Recreational Permit to Visit Sites

    by glabah Updated Dec 8, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a $10 per calendar year permit required to visit the recreational sites on the Makah Indian lands. This is pretty much limited to the Cape Flattery Trailhead, the beaches and Shi Shi Beach Trailhead. This fee is really a miniscule amount compared to other annual recreation passes (Washington State Parks is $10 per day or $30 per year, and Oregon is $5 per day and $30 per year) and helps maintain the trailheads and their parking areas. The pass is available at various stores in the community, but perhaps the most convenient is the Makah Mini-Mart along the waterfront, as that store is open until 10 pm.

    The pass also comes with a map and other helpful information.

    Alcohol is Illegal Here

    by glabah Written Dec 8, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For various reasons it has been found necessary to ban alcohol in all forms in most of the USA's Indian Reservations. That holds true here at Neah Bay. This is essentially federally controlled land, and thus state laws have no impact here in terms of legalization of other drugs.

    Isolated Area

    by kimod74 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This part of the Northwest can be quite isolated. Not many gas stations or ammenities. Be sure to bring water and food if you are going to spend a day at Shi Shi and possibly a change of shoes and socks. We had great weather on our trip, but it can be rainy and cold which will drop the temperatures quite a bit!
