Ocean City State Park

Campground Description:  Ocean City State Park is owned and operated by the State of Washington.  Ocean City State Park is a pleasant walk away from the sandy ocean beaches.  The campground is located less than a mile from Washington's Ocean Shores resort area and town.  The Pacific ocean is just to the west of Ocean City State Park while Grays Harbor is just to the east.  Aberdeen and Hoquiam are located less than 20 miles to the east and both offer deep sea fishing charters.  Activities at Ocean Beach State Park include beachcombing, kite flying, bicycling (Ocean Shores is an easy ride from the campground), bird watching and simply reading a book on the beach while the children play and scream for hours on end.  Full shopping and services are available in Ocean Shores, Hoquiam and Aberdeen.  Reservations are available and strongly recommended during the summer.  Open year round.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds.  The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site.  Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide.  Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping.  If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners.  In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased.  Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping.  While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
