Nature

Leadbetter State Park and the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge

If nature, peace, and solitude are your desires at the beach, then this is the place to go. It is possible to see over 100 varieties of birds here as well as black bear, deer, elk, and a host of smaller animals in the Refuge. The park does require the Washington State “Discover Pass” which is $10.00/day or $30.00/year for vehicle access. Jack’s Country store sells these passes.
