Pacific Beach State Park

Campground Description:  Pacific Beach State Park is owned and operated by the State of Washington.  Pacific Beach State Park is a destination campground because it isn't on the way to anywhere.  That said, Pacific Beach State Park is a great place to beach comb, drive on the beach (seasonally), surf cast for Perch, fly kites, storm watch during the winter, and explore the tiny hamlet of Pacific Beach.  The campground is devoid of trees but the lack of trees is more than made up for by the sweeping views of the ocean and Joe Creek.  Very limited shopping and services are available in Pacific Beach.  Complete shopping and services are available in Ocean Shores, 17.2 miles south.  Reservations are available.  Open year round.

Number of Sites:  Two yurts, 22 standard sites, 42 utility sites

Electricity:  At 42 sites

Water:  At 42 sites and conveniently located throughout the park

Sewer:  At 42 sites

Directions:  From Highway 101 Northbound or Southbound - Follow Highway 101 north to a point 4.3 miles north of Hoquiam or 17.3 miles south of Humptulips.  Watch for the intersection of Highway 101 and Ocean Beach Road.  Turn west onto Ocean Beach Road and follow for 20.1 miles where Ocean Beach Road becomes Main Street.  Follow Main Street for 0.2 miles to Second Street.  Turn south onto Second Street and follow for 0.2 miles to the entrance of Pacific Beach State Park.

Fishing:  Deep sea ocean charters are available in Hoquiam and Aberdeen, approximately 26 miles south.  Surf casting for Perch and Smelt is often productive.

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.
