The Elwha unit covers 62 acres located five miles west of Port Angeles and 2.5 miles north of Highway 101. Most of the unit is situated in the 100-year floodplain of the Elwha River. It was purchased for public fishing access to the Elwha River, although currently there is no public access to the unit through the surrounding properties. It is also managed for preservation of undeveloped floodplain habitat and contains conifer and deciduous riparian forest.
