... 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. 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.

Something’s in the air…the 40th NW Garlic Festival is on the way!

Sue Svendsen and her winning artwork “From the Depths”…this year’s 40th NW Garlic Festival Poster! Congratulations!

This year’s Garlic Festival will have a different flavor…but it’s still garlic 🙂 It will be a little more down home and easy going. Music, featuring solo artists and trios serenade you from the deck of the historic May West. Pop beach chairs in your trunk for casual seating and gather packaged and take-away delights to nibble as you listen. Garlic ice cream is back and fresh Music Garlic from north Pacific County will be on sale to be used for cooking or seed. This year’s 40th NW Garlic Festival poster will be unveiled at the festival! Sales for the dynamic and colorful poster OPEN at 10:15 am on Saturday. The winning artist will be there and opening bids for the original art starts too. (Important to know…a portion of poster sale proceeds will be donated to FOOPS). It’s our first time out with the new date and we are discovering so many fantastic perks along the way…September is the doorway to fall harvest and the beginning of holiday gift shopping…a crisp energy is in the air as the time to savor all things garlic comes about.
