Aramark Parks and Destinations, one of the biggest concessioners of the National Park Service, today announced it has been awarded a 10-year contract to run Lake Crescent Lodge in Olympic National Park.

Under the agreement, the company is now in charge of all management and operational functions at the lodge, as well as at the nearby Fairholme and Hurricane Ridge stores. That includes overnight accommodations, food and beverage services, retail, rentals and fuel sales.

Aramark already manages Kalaloch Lodge, Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort and Lake Quinault Lodge in the park.

During the last 25 years, Aramark has developed a relationship with the Olympic Peninsula community, including hosting annual Earth Day events and holiday parties, establishing a recycling center for use by local residents, providing educational opportunities for local school children, and supporting local charities and organizations, a company news release said.

The Lake Crescent Lodge, built in 1916 as “Singers Tavern” in Olympic National Park is along the park’s northern edge.

Forever Resorts had been in charge of the lodge.
