On the shoreline of Washington State sits a modest 17-acre camping park aptly named Pacific Beach State Park. The park is located around 17 miles north of the town Ocean Shores and 12 miles south of the town Taholah. Thanks to the park's lovely campsites, saltwater sandy beach, and a soothing summer breeze, it's popular with Grays Harbor County campers, anglers, traveling families, and young couples.
Due to the array of water-based activities on offer, the park welcomes thousands of visitors during the busy summer season. People who come here tend to spend their time swimming, exploring the beach, digging for clams, flying kites, or building sandcastles. Pacific Beach State Park is also popular with avid anglers and keen birdwatchers.
Pacific Beach State Park campers enjoy a wide variety of recreational activities. The half-mile-long beach is the park’s focal point, luring beachcombers and those seeking some relaxation in the sand and surf. You'll mostly find seashells and clams along the shore. However, there's no telling what will wash up, so head out and see what you can uncover. Just be sure to check the regulations and season dates for clamming activities. You'll also need a license if you plan to do any shellfish harvesting.
If you're RV camping at Pacific Beach State Park during winter and can't play in the water, you can always spend time watching the grey whales migrate to warmer waters. Pacific Beach State Park is one of the best places to spot whales during the migration, so don't forget to pack the binoculars in your campervan rental. People often come here for storm watching, as Mother Nature can put on quite a spectacle during winter while showcasing her power.
Joe Creek is also one of the park's main attractions, and the number one reason for that is surf fishing. Here, you can expect to catch cutthroat trout, certain species of perch, and steelhead. Summertime visitors like to relax while sunbathing, cool off by swimming or snorkeling, or simply play at the beach. Be sure to check water conditions, as rip currents can be strong during certain times of year.
State park RV campgrounds are often sufficiently furnished in terms of amenities, and Pacific Beach is no exception. There are 41 back-in campsites with electric hookups as well as 20 primitive sites. The maximum length of a vehicle allowed is 60 feet, but only a handful of these sites are available, so be sure to check the site length when making your reservations.
Amenities available at Pacific Beach State Park include a dump station, two ADA accessible restrooms, and six ADA accessible showers. Additionally, the park has eight picnic tables that guests can claim on a first-come, first-served basis. Campfires aren't allowed in the campground but are permitted on the beach, so long as they are at least 100 feet away from vegetation.
Don't have your own rig? All you need to do is search for an RV in Grays Harbor County and make reservations over the phone once you get your RV rental. If you're not camping in a motorhome, reserve one of the park's two yurts.
Ready to hit the road and see some of the sights nearby? Some 25 miles away is the town of Hoquiam. Ocean Shores and Taholah are both quite close. This will come in handy if you want to eat out, refill your tank, or do some shopping. As far as cuisine options go, Ocean Shores is probably your best bet, as you will find Chinese, Mexican, Irish, pub fare, pizza, and other restaurants there.
Right next to Hoquiam is the town of Aberdeen, home to the Aberdeen Art Center. The art center's Alder Grove Gallery displays the work of local artists working in a range of mediums. Aberdeen Art Center also hosts a lineup of fun events, like galas, art walks, and classes. Be sure to check the schedule to see what's happening during your trip.
Treat the kids to a fun day at the theme park in Ocean Shores. The park has all sorts of entertainment, including an arcade, laser tag, mini-golf courses, and bumper boats. Ocean Shores is also home to a variety of recreation areas where you can do some wildlife watching or relax by the ocean.
For those of you who are history buffs and want to know more about the area, head to Taholah and tour the Quinault Cultural Center and Museum. The museum was founded to preserve the culture of the Quinault Nation. In fact, the Quinault Cultural Center and Museum is owned and managed by the Quinault Nation.
