... 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 Membership page for categorized listings of what our area has to offer.

Pack up your trick or treating Halloween monsters and cruise on by!
