The county seat of Clallam County is at Port Angeles, which is also the county's largest city. "Clallam" derives from a Klallam word meaning "the strong people." Located in Clallam County is Cape Alava, the western-most point in both Washington and the continental United States, with a longitude of 124 degrees, 43 minutes and 59 seconds. Also, near Cape Alava is Ozette, the western-most town in the continental United States.
Clallam County lies across the northern half of Washington's Olympic Peninsula, the northwest corner of the Pacific Northwest. Its western and northern boundaries are the Pacific Ocean and Strait of Juan de Fuca shorelines. The southern boundary cuts through Olympic National Park, the nearly million-acre wilderness interior of the Peninsula. The high mountains, rugged coastlines, deep forest, miles of unspoiled rivers, clean air and water, and mild marine climate offer a most unusual combination of environmental amenities.
When the cultural, educational, and social amenities available in the cities and towns are considered, along with the range of living styles from small town to rural to backwoods, the county becomes a uniquely desirable place to visit, live and work.
