... 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 or, to find something specific, visit our Membership page for categorized listings of what our area has to offer.

Burn Ban in effect at all Washington state parks

For local burn ban and burning permit information follow this LINK to Pacific County Fire District #1’s website.
Information on State Parks burn ban has not changed as of September 14, 2021 (see below).

July 2, 2021 8:00 AM

Effective July 2, and until further notice, all state parks and ocean beaches in the Seashore Conservation Area are under a Level 3 or higher burn ban. With extreme hot and dry conditions affecting the entire state, the campfire ban is necessary to help prevent accidental wildfires. A Level 3 Burn Ban prohibits the use of wood or charcoal fires, but propane fire pits are allowed. Level 4 prohibits open flame of any type. For more information on Burn Bans, see our news release at this LINK or visit www.parks.state.wa.us/Campfires
IMPORTANT TO KNOW – The beaches on the peninsula are part of the Seashore Conservation Area – no charcoal or wood fires on the beach during this ban.

Beach Safety Information It may be hot and look like a beach in Southern California but the waters along the peninsula are very different. Cold water temperatures, strong rip currents and an uneven bottom makes the water dangerous. Be informed so you can make safe decisions. Tide information also found via this LINK.
