Ferry Storm King, Lake Crescent,
Clallam County, WA
This scene, photographed by 1922, shows the side-wheeler ferry Storm King approaching the
East Beach ferry dock, at the east end of Lake Crescent.
This scene was photographed by “Wheeler Fotos” about 1918 at the head of Lake
Crescent. Shown on the left is the Fairholm ferry landing and on the right the Hotel
Fairholme. The Fairholm ferry landing was along the early automobile route to Forks,
Washington and the west end of Clallam County, before the road along the south shore of Lake
Crescent was completed in 1922. Captions on some old photographs call this ferry landing
“Sol Duc Landing”. The wake from the eastbound ferry from which this scene was
photographed is visible back to the ferry landing.
