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

Welcome!

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.

It’s important to note that final approval for digs depends on marine toxin test results, with domoic acid levels needing to be below certain thresholds to ensure the clams are safe to eat. The Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) provides updates on these conditions, so it’s advised to check their information or press releases for the most current details.

When digging for razor clams, each person is allowed to harvest the first 15 clams they dig, regardless of size or condition. This limit is in place to prevent waste and ensure sustainable harvesting practices. Anyone 15 years or older will need to have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach.

For those new to clam digging, it’s a family-friendly activity that can be enjoyed with basic equipment such as a clam shovel or tube, a container for your clams, and, crucially, a clam license. Techniques vary, but looking for “clam shows,” which indicate the presence of a clam beneath the surface, is a common method.
