... a step away from the crowds ...


Welcome to our beautiful area. The middle to north end of the Long Beach Peninsula is a slower paced, less crowded part of Pacific County’s coastline. We have the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Willapa Bay on the other. Beaches, wetlands, old growth forests, historic neighborhoods, quaint towns, state parks and a bustling port all make this area home. Ocean Park, Nahcotta, Oysterville, Surfside and Klipsan Beach are the villages dotted about the north end and each has its own special flavor…enjoy exploring them all by simply driving our roads or, to find something specific, visit our OPACC Business Directory page for categorized listings of what our area has to offer.

As you are enjoying the beauty of our location…please be watchful for wildlife. Fawns are being born now and it is not uncommon for Mom to park their babies in an unobtrusive spot with instructions to stay and be quiet. Surprisingly, they are very obedient and extra care must be made to check for them in tall grass before mowing…baby rabbits too. If you come across a hidden baby, do not approach it. Keep an eye and if mom hasn’t returned after several hours, give a call to our local Peninsula Wild Care 360-947-3188 or visit their website. Oregon no longer allows any transport of wildlife or birds from state to state, but you may also be able to get advice only by calling the Astoria based Wildlife Center of the North Coast at: 503-338-0331.

Gather with family and friends to celebrate the holiday…all invited! BYOP ~ bring your own picnic, chairs & tables!

Thank you WA State Parks for developing this great informational brochure…this is the last year 8 days of fireworks will be allowed. 2023 will have reduction of days. Also, please keep track of the tides! This LINK will take you to July Tide Tables.

With such a wet spring and warmer temperatures, mosquitoes are living the good life right now. Here is a DIY and safe spray you can make that really works and leaves your yard smelling minty fresh 😉 . You may have to reapply after heavy rains.
