Pacific County is Open with Caution

Welcome to our beautiful area. The 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 and a bustling port all make this area home.

Covid-19 has taken a hit but we are resilient. Our business owners have all worked hard to present their establishments in the safest manner possible. We hope you take that same care when you visit.

The Ocean Park Area Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize the hard work our businesses have done over the last several months to make sure they are presenting safe public access in their business locations. We would also like to thank the seemingly tireless essential workers who not only protect us and provide medical assistance, but who also make sure our daily needs are met to the best of their abilities.
